Cardinals RB James Conner ran for 79 yards on 16 carries (4.9 per rush) in Sunday's narrow loss to the Falcons, adding 31 yards on 3 receptions. He watched TE Trey McBride claim the team's only TD, in a game that also included 4 Matt Prater FGs. Conner closes out the season with a difficult matchup against the 49ers, for those playing fantasy through Week 18.

Cardinals RB James Conner suffered a shin injury in the 2nd half of Sunday's game vs. the Falcons and is officially questionable to return. We'll update his status when we know more.

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 RB James Conner rushed 15 times for 79 yards and a TD in Sunday night's OT loss to the Buccaneers. It was Arizona's only TD for the game. Conner added 7 catches for 41 yards among 8 targets. Conner gets a high-upside Week 17 matchup with the Falcons, who rank 7th most friendly to RBs by adjusted fantasy points allowed.

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.

Cardinals RB James Conner ran 16 times for 63 yards in Sunday's loss to the Broncos. He beefed up the fantasy line with a 4th-quarter TD from 1 yard out. Conner added 28 yards on 3 catches. He gets the Buccaneers in Week 16 and then a high-ceiling matchup at the Falcons in Week 17.

Cardinals RB James Conner rushed 25 times for 120 yards (4.8 per carry) in Sunday's narrow loss to the Chargers. He added 3 catches for 20 yards and a TD among 3 targets. Keaontay Ingram claimed the only 2 other RB carries, while Corey Clement drew the only other RB target. Conner now gets a Week 13 bye and then a tough trio of RB-scoring matchups.

Cardinals RB James Conner ran for 69 yards and 2 TDs in Sunday's win over the Rams, adding 17 yards on 3 receptions. He dominated backfield work in his 2nd game back from a 3-week rib injury. RB Keaontay Ingram claimed the team's only other RB carry. No other Cardinals RB drew a target in the game. Conner gets another tough rushing matchup with the 49ers in Week 11, but the kind of work volume he got Sunday will make him a weekly starter for most fantasy football teams going forward. Eno Benjamin was active but didn't get a touch in the game.

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.

A source "expressed skepticism" to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler about Cardinals QB Kyler Murray's availability for Sunday's game vs. the Rams. Murray is still slated to test that injured hamstring in pregame warmups, per Fowler. QB Colt McCoy will get the start if Murray is out.

Cardinals RB James Conner returned Sunday after losing 3 games to a rib injury. He led Arizona RBs in carries (7), rushing yards (45) and receiving (5-19 on 5 targets). Eno Benjamin logged 4 carries for 12 yards and caught his lone target for 15 more. They both watched QB Kyler Murray lead the team in rushing attempts (8) and ground yards (60). Next comes a Rams matchup that has ranked among the league's worst for RB scoring.

Cardinals RB James Conner (ribs) is active for today’s game vs. the Seahawks. It’ll be his first action since Week 5. In 3 healthy games this season, Conner has averaged 12.7 carries and 4.7 targets. We’ll see if RB Eno Benjamin eats into that work at all going forward.

Cardinals RB James Conner (ribs) is expected to play vs. the Seahawks later today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. "Arizona does want to test him in pre-game warmups," Schefter adds. We won't get the Cardinals' inactives until a little after 2:30 pm ET, so you should have a late-game backup plan in place if you're hoping to use Conner. Assuming he plays, we're projecting him to step back in as Arizona's lead back. But RB Eno Benjamin could play a bigger role behind Conner than he did early in the season.

Cardinals RB James Conner (ribs) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Seahawks. HC Kliff Kingsbury called him a game-time decision on Friday. This is a 4:05 pm ET kickoff, but we’ll look for an update on Conner on Sunday morning. RB Darrel Williams (hip) was placed on IR earlier this week, so Eno Benjamin will control backfield work if Conner sits again.

Cardinals RB James Conner (ribs) was limited again in Thursday's practice. He seemingly has a shot to return for this weekend's game vs. the Seahawks, but check back tomorrow for another update.

Cardinals RB James Conner (ribs) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. He was limited last Wednesday and Thursday before missing Friday's practice and the Vikings game. RB Darrel Williams (hip) was placed on IR on Wednesday, leaving Eno Benjamin and Keaontay Ingram as Arizona's healthy RBs.

Cardinals RB James Conner (ribs) is out for this weekend's game vs. the Vikings. He got in limited practices on Wednesday and Thursday but didn't practice on Friday, so this looks like a setback. RB Darrel Williams (knee) will be a game-time decision, HC Kliff Kingsbury said. But it'll be Eno Benjamin again leading the backfield against Minnesota's 9th-ranked RB defense. Consider Benjamin a RB2 -- and a safer fantasy bet if Williams remains out.

Cardinals RBs James Conner (ribs) and Darrel Williams (knee) remained limited in Thursday's practice. We'll see what they do on Friday and how they're listed on the final injury report for this weekend's game against the Vikings.

Cardinals RBs James Conner (ribs) and Darrel Williams (knee) got in limited practices on Wednesday. Both guys seemingly have a shot to make it back for this weekend's game vs. the Vikings. We're guessing that Conner would re-assume lead duties, but RB Eno Benjamin might have earned himself a bigger role. Williams will likely return as the #3 RB.
