The Cardinals are planning on trading WR DeAndre Hopkins this offseason, according to The Score's Jordan Schultz. Hopkins has 2 years and $34.4 million left on his current contract but is expected to angle for a new deal this offseason, per Schultz. Arizona, meanwhile, looks to be entering a rebuild phase after canning HC Kliff Kingsbury and losing GM Steve Keim. Hopkins turns 31 in June but remained effective this past year, posting a 64-717-3 line across 9 games. He ranked 9th among WRs in PPR points per game and 18th among 80 qualifiers in yards per route run.

The Cardinals have already ruled WR DeAndre Hopkins (knee) out for this week. Without Hopkins last Sunday, TE Trey McBride and WR Greg Dortch tied for the lead with 25% target share apiece. WR Marquise Brown checked in 1 target behind them. Week 18, however, will find a much tougher defense in San Francisco. Check our Week 18 fantasy football rankings to see where everyone has landed.

The Cardinals have downgraded WR DeAndre Hopkins (knee) to out for Sunday’s game against the Falcons. That boosts the target outlooks for WRs Marquise Brown and Greg Dortch, though all Cardinals will be catching passes from QB David Blough. There’s PPR upside to the 2 wideouts, but this isn’t an offense to get overly excited about

Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins left Friday's practice with a knee injury that is expected to make him a game-time decision for Sunday against the Falcons, according to the team website. On top of that, Hopkins will also see his 4th QB of the season. Colt McCoy's concussion symptoms resurfaced Friday, meaning he'll miss the game. Arizona will start David Blough over Trace McSorley. Blough -- who started 5 games for the 2019 Lions -- will have been with the team less than 3 weeks come game time. The whole situation makes it tough to like any Cardinals pass-catchers for Week 17. We're not significantly downgrading the outlook for RB James Conner, however.

Who would have guessed that any NFL wideout would be excited to see Colt McCoy enter the huddle? Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins should feel that way when McCoy returns to action for this Sunday's game against the Falcons. Hopkins has been targeted on 37.1% of McCoy's pass attempts this season, drawing 11+ in every one of the QB's appearances. The 1st 2 came with WR Marquise Brown out, but Hopkins got 11 looks and tallied 7 catches the past 2 times with Brown back in the lineup. (Brown saw 8 targets in each of those contests.) Hopkins, of course, didn't have a target issue last week with QB Trace McSorley, who threw 10 passes his way. But Hopkins caught just 1 of those. He has caught at least 7 balls in every game that has involved McCoy. Atlanta arrives as the 6th-best scoring matchup for WRs, which obviously helps Hopkins. You'll find him prominent in our Week 17 WR rankings.

Cardinals QB Colt McCoy has cleared the concussion protocol and is expected to start Sunday's game vs. the Falcons, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. McCoy is no savior, of course. But he's a significant upgrade over QB Trace McSorley. McCoy's return is good news for RB James Conner and WRs DeAndre Hopkins and Marquise Brown.

Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins drew 10 targets in Sunday night's OT loss to the Bucs, falling just 1 short of WR Greg Dortch's team lead. But he caught only 1 of them for 4 yards. WR Marquise Brown tallied 3 catches for 57 yards among 6 targets. Third-string QB Trace McSorley averaged just 4.8 yards per attempt on his 45 passes. We'll see whether QB Colt McCoy makes it back for a Week 17 date with the Falcons.

The Cardinals ruled QB Colt McCoy (concussion) out for Sunday's game vs. the Bucs. That leaves Trace McSorley under center for Arizona. McSorley started for 3 seasons at Penn State but completed just 59% of his passes. He went in the 6th round of the 2019 NFL Draft and has gone 15-of-29 for 166 yards, 0 TDs and 3 INTs in 3 appearances for the Cardinals this season. There's nothing to suggest that McSorley is an NFL-calibre QB. Consider him a significant downgrade from McCoy.

WR Marquise Brown led the Cardinals with 8 targets in Sunday's return from IR. He also played 15 more snaps than WR DeAndre Hopkins and ran 3 more routes. Hopkins still drew 6 targets and caught 4 balls for 87 yards and a TD. Brown managed 6 receptions for 46 yards. RB James Conner was the only other Cardinal to catch more than 1 pass. Brown's return could limit the target upside for Hopkins going forward, but there should be room for both at least as long as slot WR Rondale Moore is out.

Cardinals WR Marquise Brown (foot) is expected to be activated from IR and play vs. the Chargers on Sunday, HC Kliff Kingsbury said. Brown has been practicing for a couple of weeks now after going down back in Week 6. He carries elevated risk in his 1st game back but certainly has enough upside to make sense in plenty of fantasy lineups. Brown averaged 10.7 targets, 7.2 catches, 81 yards and .5 TDs over the first 6 games of the season -- although none of those came with WR DeAndre Hopkins.

Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) is active for tonight’s game against San Francisco. The veteran has snagged 10+ passes in 3 of 4 games this season.

There's "some confidence" that Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) will play vs. the 49ers tonight, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It sounds like Hopkins is likely to play, although it's not quite a lock. We'll get Arizona's inactives around 7 pm ET tonight.

Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game vs. the 49ers. He put in limited practices on Friday and Saturday after sitting out Thursday for what HC Kliff Kingsbury called "maintenance." We're expecting Hopkins to play, but the late kickoff adds risk for fantasy owners. We'll see if we get an update on Hopkins on Sunday morning.

Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) returned to a limited practice on Friday. HC Kliff Kingsbury said Hopkins sitting out on Thursday was a “maintenance deal." It sounds like he'll be available for Monday night's game vs. the 49ers, but check back tomorrow for another update on Hopkins.

Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins missed Thursday's practice with a hamstring issue. We don't have any other details, but his status for Monday night's game vs. the 49ers obviously bears monitoring over the next few days. We'll get another update on Hopkins tomorrow.

Cardinals WR Rondale Moore finished just 1 target and 1 reception short of WR DeAndre Hopkins' team leads in each category in Sunday's win over the Rams. He tallied 9-94 receiving on 13 looks. Hopkins led with 14 targets, catching 10 balls for 98 yards. RB James Conner (3) and WR A.J. Green (2) were the only other Cardinals to catch more than 1 pass. It was Moore's 3rd straight game with at least 7 receptions. Next comes a 49ers defense that has played the run tougher than the pass this season.

Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (hamstring) is not expected to play against the Rams today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. A final decision won't come until pregame warmups, but Schefter says QB Colt McCoy is "likely" to get the start. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport agrees, tweeting that Murray is "unlikely" to play. "He's still moving very gingerly," Rapoport adds. We won't get Arizona's inactives until 3 pm ET, but fantasy owners should operate under the assumption that Murray will not play.
