Cardinals S Budda Baker (knee) is active for today’s game against the Packers. The team seemed to be patient with returning him to action, keeping him on the sideline last week despite limited practices. Baker should get back into most IDP lineups. Cardinals LB Haason Reddick (neck) is also active following a questionable tag. He’s a weak IDP option, though.

Cardinals S Budda Baker is questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers with the knee injury that kept him out last week. Baker put in a full practice Friday, though, after limited workouts the 1st 2 days. We'd bet on him returning vs. Green Bay but will check on his status Sunday morning. We'll also check on the status of LB Haason Reddick, who is questionable with a neck injury. Reddick is a low-level IDP option at best.

The Cardinals have ruled S Budda Baker out for Sunday's game against the Raiders with a knee injury. DT Robert Nkemdiche (calf) is questionable but missed practice Wednesday and Friday. Try not to use him even if he's active.

Cardinals S Budda Baker (foot) and S Tre Boston (chest) are questionable for Sunday's game at Kansas City. Baker showed up on the injury report Thursday, missing that day's workout, but returned for limited participation Friday. Boston put in limited workouts all week after missing the past 2 games. We'll check the status of both safeties Sunday morning.

8:10am EDT 10/27/18

The Cardinals have ruled S Tre Boston out for the 2nd straight game. He's dealing with shoulder and rib injuries and didn't practice at all the past 2 weeks. We'll see how Boston's doing after the Week 9 bye.

The Cardinals have ruled S Tre Boston out for Thursday night's game against the Broncos. Boston is dealing with shoulder and rib injuries and hasn't practiced this week. We'll see if Boston can make it back for a Week 8 meeting with the 49ers. If it's close at all, a Week 9 bye might factor into that decision.

Cardinals DE Markus Golden (knee) and DT Robert Nkemdiche (foot) are active for today's game against the Vikings. Golden's not an IDP option yet, but Nkemdiche can be used in deeper leagues -- especially those with a DT-specific slot.

Cardinals DE Markus Golden (knee) and DT Robert Nkemdiche (foot) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings. Each guy finished the week with limited practices and could be in for Week 6. We'll check on their statuses Sunday morning. Nkemdiche would be a lower-level IDP option if available. Golden still needs to show he's all the way back from last season's ACL tear before he returns to the IDP radar.

Cardinals DT Robert Nkemdiche (foot) and DE Markus Golden (knee) are inactive for today's game against the 49ers. That hurts the team defense but doesn't remove the fantasy upside from the matchup.

Cardinals DE Markus Golden is inactive for today's game against the Rams. Golden put in limited practices all week as he works back from the ACL tear that ended his 2017 early. Golden appears to be on track for a return to game action soon, but we'll need to see his playing time and performance before trusting him in any IDP lineups.

New Cardinals HC Steve Wilks confirmed Tuesday his team will be switching to a 4-3 base defense this season, according to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic. Wilks reportedly said a key factor in the change is allowing edge guys Chandler Jones and Markus Golden to rush the passer every down. That's the big news here for IDP owners as well. The switch should mean that we'll get DE designations for Jones and Golden in fantasy football leagues in 2018, which would dramatically increase their value. Jones, of course, led the NFL with 17 sacks last season and is no secret as a top pass rusher. Golden much more quietly racked up 12.5 sacks, 16 total tackles for loss and 22 total QB hits in 2016 before missing most of last season with a torn right ACL. He'll be a solid shot to take late in IDP drafts this summer -- especially if he gets that DL designation.

The Cardinals are set to hire Steve Wilks as their new HC, according to multiple reports. Wilks has been in the NFL since 2006, primarily as a DBs coach. He was promoted to Panthers DC last offseason after Sean McDermott left for Buffalo, leading his squad to a 7th-place finish in total defense. We'll see who Wilks brings aboard to run his offense.

Cardinals LB Karlos Dansby and S Antoine Bethea are active for today’s game against the Giants. They’re low-level IDP options, but use as you normally would

Cardinals HC Bruce Arians said Monday that CB Tramon Williams has a chance to take the starting job opposite Patrick Peterson away from Justin Bethel, according to the team website. Arians stopped short of promising such a change but said that Williams "needs to play more" after he grabbed a big INT in Sunday's win over the Bucs. Playing opposite Peterson can be a lucrative position for IDP value, so the starting nod for Week 7 against the Rams will be worth watching.

Cardinals LB Karlos Dansby is questionable for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers after a hamstring injury limited his participation all week. We'd bet on Dansby playing, but we'll see about his status Sunday.
