The Cardinals are signing former Jaguars WR Zay Jones, according to multiple reports. NFL Network reports that it's a one-year deal worth "up to" $4.5 million.

The Arizona Cardinals spent the fifth pick of the NFL Draft on WR Marvin Harrison Jr. Harrison has looked like a top-5 pick for a while now. The son of the longtime Colt and NFL Hall of Famer, Junior arrived at Ohio State as a four-star recruit. He broke out as a true sophomore in 2022, racking up 77 catches for 1,263 yards, and 14 TDs. He ranked third among 286 qualifying WRs in Pro Football Focus receiving grade and seventh in yards per route. Harrison’s raw production took a slight step back this past year (67-1,211-14), but he set new career highs in share of receiving yards (35.7%), share of receiving TDs (53.9%), and yards per route (3.44). That rate was a better mark than Chris Olave or Garrett Wilson ever managed at Ohio State. Harrison won the 2023 Biletnikoff Award as the top WR in college football. He’s a big-bodied 6’3, 209-pounder but moves like a much smaller man. Harrison consistently creates separation with fluid route running and a high football IQ. And when he’s not “open,” he can win with top-notch ball skills. Harrison looks ready to make an immediate impact in the NFL and ultimately boasts top-5 fantasy upside. He arrives to an offense needing a lead WR. Harrison's arrival boosts the fantasy upside of QB Kyler Murray.

Cardinals HC Jonathan Gannon said Tuesday that there's "no doubt" Kyler Murray is his team's QB going forward. "'Number 1' is our franchise quarterback," Gannon added. Things can change over the course of the offseason. But the 4-12 Cardinals are currently slated to pick fourth in this spring's draft, so they'd need to move up to land USC's Caleb Williams or North Carolina's Drake Maye. Murray's 2023 numbers don't jump off the page, but his play has been encouraging considering he's coming off a torn ACL and learning a brand new offense. He had his best outing of the season in the Week 17 win over the Eagles. We'll see how Murray finishes the campaign in Sunday's finale vs. the Seahawks.

Cardinals QB Kyler Murray completed 25 of 31 passes for 232 yards with 3 TDs and 1 INT in Week 17 vs. the Eagles. He added 24 yards on 5 carries. Murray ranks 12th in fantasy points per game among QBs through Week 17, a solid-to-strong level for a mobile QB coming off an ACL tear. His connection with TE Trey McBride proved stellar and presents a solid building block for the Cardinals moving into 2024. HC Jonathan Gannon has since said Murray will "no doubt" remain Arizona's starter. With $53.1 million in projected cap space and three of the top-35 picks in the NFL Draft (as of now), the Cardinals could rebuild the offense quickly around their QB.

Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (illness) is active for today’s game vs. the Eagles. He only got in a limited practice on Friday this week, but there’s been nothing to suggest that he’ll be limited today.

Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (illness) is expected to play vs. the Eagles today, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Murray only got in a limited practice on Friday, but he's unlikely to be impacted by his illness today.

Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (illness) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Eagles. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, but HC Jonathan Gannon confirmed that Murray is expected to be ready to go on Sunday. We’ll get Arizona’s inactives for that one around 11:30 am ET.

Cardinals QB Kyler Murray has missed the first two practices of the week with an illness. It's unlikely to keep him out of this weekend's game vs. the Eagles, but we'll see if Murray gets on the field tomorrow and how he's listed on the final injury report.

Cardinals QB Kyler Murray tallied 214 yards and one score passing and 51 yards and another TD rushing in the Week 11 loss to the Texans. The passing performance left plenty to be desired. Murray averaged a decent 7.1 yards per attempt but had a handful of misfires, including underthrowing WR Marquise Brown on a potential long TD. But Murray was again active and productive as a runner. He's now totaled 13 carries, 84 yards, and two TDs over the last two weeks. That will keep him in the lower-end QB1 mix going forward, with upside beyond that if he settles in as a passer. Murray gets neutral matchups the next two weeks vs. the Rams and Steelers before a Week 14 bye.

Cardinals WR Michael Wilson (shoulder) is not expected to play vs. the Texans today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The rookie aggravated his shoulder injury in Friday's practice. Arizona will also be without WR Zach Pascal (hamstring) today, leaving Greg Dortch as the likely No. 3 WR. That arrangement figures to push WR Rondale Moore to the outside when the Cardinals go with three WRs. Moore, WR Marquise Brown, and TE Trey McBride have a chance to pick up an extra target or two with Wilson out.

Cardinals HC Jonathan Gannon officially named QB Kyler Murray the Week 10 starter on Friday. Sunday's game vs. the Falcons will mark Murray's first action since tearing his ACL last December. His rushing figures to be curtailed coming off that knee injury. And remember that this will be Murray's first game in OC Drew Petzing's offense. He'd be a risky QB1 fantasy play in Week 10 but could quickly work his way into the top-12 discussion.

Cardinals HC Jonathan Gannon said Monday that QB Kyler Murray will start Sunday against the Falcons, assuming he has another good week at practice, according to Darren Urban of the team website. This has been the expected return date for weeks now, despite Murray rejoining practices in Week 7. Arizona's caution and patience in bringing Murray back from his ACL tear should mean we get something close to a full-strength version. Of course, we can't know how often or how effectively Murray will run until we see him in games. His return can only help a passing game, though, that got just 58 yards, 2 INTs and 7 sacks from rookie Clayton Tune in Sunday's shutout loss to Cleveland. We're hoping for Murray to bring top-12 fantasy upside among QBs. We're betting on him enhancing the fantasy outlooks for other Arizona skill-position players.

Update: The Cardinals officially activated Murray from the PUP list on Tuesday.

Cardinals QB Clayton Tune completed 11 of 20 passes for 58 yards and 2 INTs in Week 9 vs. the Ravens. The rookie wasn’t very successful on Sunday. The same can be said for the rest of the Arizona offense. WR Marquise Brown hauled 4 of 8 targets for 24 yards, and TE Trey McBride accumulated 22 yards on 3 receptions. These two were the only Cardinals who totaled greater than 10 yards gained, rushing or receiving, in the contest. There’s not much fantasy-wise to take away from this contest, though it’s very likely that Week 10 will see the season debut of QB Kyler Murray (ACL). Next weekend’s matchup against the Falcons should be a good spot for both Murray and McBride as Atlanta ranks within the top 10-easiest matchups in adjusted fantasy points allowed to QBs and TEs this season.

Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (knee) was not activated to the 53-man roster and is out for Sunday's game vs. the Browns. He's been a full-go in practice the past two weeks. We're expecting Murray to make his 2023 debut next weekend. Rookie QB Clayton Tune will make his first career start tomorrow.

Cardinals QB Clayton Tune is expected to start Sunday's game vs. the Browns, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. QB Kyler Murray (knee) put in another full week of practice and is listed as questionable. But the Week 10 home game vs. the Falcons has looked like his most likely return target for a while now. Tune is a fifth-round rookie out of Houston who completed just 58% of his passes at 6.0 yards per attempt this preseason. He ranked 42nd in Pro Football Focus passing grade among 68 qualifiers. Arizona is implied for 14.25 points in Cleveland, which tells you how little confidence we should have in this Tune-led offense.

Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (knee) is officially questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Browns. He was listed as doubtful last week. HC Jonathan Gannon wouldn’t say Friday who will start at QB this weekend. We’re still expecting it to be Clayton Tune but will keep you updated on the situation.

On Monday, Cardinals HC Jonathan Gannon announced that the team has decided to reverse course and name rookie QB Clayton Tune as the starter for Week 9 vs. the Browns. This is in contrast to a statement made by Gannon yesterday that Joshua Dobbs would be the QB1 next weekend. Either way, this news still delays Kyler Murray's return from ACL until Week 10 at the earliest. As for Tune, he shouldn't be considered a starter in fantasy lineups outside deeper 2QB/superflex formats.

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Cardinals HC Jonathan Gannon announced QB Joshua Dobbs will be the starter in Week 9 against the Browns. By effect, this news delays the return of starter Kyler Murray, who is near the end of his ACL recovery, by at least another week. Murray practiced fully every day leading up to Sunday's contest vs. the Ravens before being listed as 'Doubtful' and subsequently ruled out for the game. Fantasy managers must stay patient and cross their fingers that we'll see Murray under center in Week 10 vs. the Falcons at the earliest.

Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (knee) was not activated from IR and won't play vs. the Ravens on Sunday. He'd been listed as doubtful. Murray was a full participant in practice this week, though, so a Week 9 return seems possible. We'll track his status this coming week.

Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (knee) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game vs. the Ravens. He was a full participant in practice all week and was actually not even listed on the Thursday or Friday practice report. But Murray is still at least one more week away from his 2023 debut. QB Josh Dobbs will start vs. Baltimore.
