Most Recent Fantasy Football News & Updates

Cardinals WR Marquise Brown racked up 17 targets in Sunday's loss to the Rams, catching 14 of them for 140 yards. We'll obviously take those number for fantasy football lineups, but credit a passing-volume bubble for a struggling offense. QB Kyler Murray attempted 58 passes, completing 37 (63.8%) for 314 yards, with no TDs or INTs. WR Greg Dortch and TE Zach Ertz followed Brown with 10 targets apiece. No other Cardinals drew more than 5 looks. Dortch caught 9 of his targets for 80 yards; Ertz caught 6 for 45.

Cardinals QB Kyler Murray used a late rushing TD and a pair of 2-point conversions to make up for a lackluster passing day in Sunday's comeback win over the Raiders. Murray threw for 277 yards and a TD on 31-of-49 passing, a rate of just 5.65 yards per attempt. Murray added 28 yards on the ground, though, including the TD. He added a rushing 2-point conversion and threw for another. A Week 3 date with the Rams might present his toughest matchup so far this season.

Cardinals QB Kyler Murray managed just 193 yards on 22-of-34 passing (5.7 yards per attempt) in Sunday's lopsided loss to the Chiefs. Murray did toss a pair of TDs -- to Marquise Brown and Zach Ertz -- but added a just-OK 29 rushing yards on 5 attempts. We still like the upside on Murray going forward. It certainly didn't help that he lost Rondale Moore last week and got a limited Ertz -- on top of missing DeAndre Hopkins (for another 5 games). Murray gets a favorable matchup at the Raiders in Week 2.

Cardinals WR Rondale Moore (hamstring) is out for this weekend's opener vs. the Chiefs. He hurt his hamstring on Thursday and didn't practice on Friday. We'll look for further updates on Moore's hamstring, but this could be a multi-game absence. With WR DeAndre Hopkins out on suspension, it'll be Marquise Brown, A.J. Green, Andy Isabella and Greg Dortch as Arizona's top 4 WRs on Sunday. It's a concern for QB Kyler Murray.

Cardinals WR Rondale Moore injured his hamstring running a route in Thursday's practice, Pro Football Network's Aaron Wilson reports. Moore is scheduled for an MRI to determine the severity. We'll pass along an update when we get one, but Moore now looks unlikely to play vs. the Chiefs on Sunday. Arizona, of course, is also without WR DeAndre Hopkins, leaving Marquise Brown, A.J. Green, Andy Isabella and Greg Dortch as the top 4 WRs. It's a concern for QB Kyler Murray.

Cardinals QB Kyler Murray returned to practice on Saturday. He missed 5 days with COVID but still has over a month to go before the season opener. Murray remains a high-upside QB1 in fantasy drafts.

Cardinals QB Kyler Murray tested positive for COVID and will miss at least the next 5 days of training camp, HC Kliff Kingsbury said. Murray is reportedly dealing with "minor" symptoms. It's fortunate timing with Week 1 still over a month away. Assuming no long-term impacts of the virus, consider Murray's fantasy stock unaffected.

The Cardinals and QB Kyler Murray have agreed to a 5-year, $230.5 million deal with $160 million guaranteed, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. It makes Murray the league's 2nd-highest-paid QB in terms of average annual salary. So, after early-offseason reports that these sides might be headed for a divorce, Murray is now locked up with the Cardinals through the 2027 season. Murray is coming off a QB5 finish in fantasy points per game.

ESPN's Jeff Darlington reports that contract talks between the Cardinals and QB Kyler Murray are "going smooth and getting a deal before camp remains a very reasonable likelihood." It looked like the 2 sides might be heading for a divorce early this offseason, but cooler heads have prevailed. "The drama of February feels long in the rear view," Darlington adds. Expect Murray to be under center for Arizona in 2022 and likely beyond. He remains 1 of the highest-upside QBs in fantasy football.

League insider Albert Breer believes the Cardinals will “find a way to get something done early in the summer” regarding a contract extension for Kyler Murray. Currently, the QB is under team control for 2 more seasons. Only 24, Murray will likely get Josh Allen money on his next contract.

The Cardinals exercised the 5th-year option on QB Kyler Murray's rookie contract. It'll pay him about $30 million in 2023 if the 2 sides don't work out a long-term deal before then. This was a no-brainer move for Arizona, despite the drama with Murray this offseason.

Cardinals QB Kyler Murray will not take part in the team's offseason conditioning program starting on Tuesday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. This, of course, comes amid contract drama between Murray and the Cardinals. But Rapoport notes that "many of the team's veterans" aren't attending, either, and that "this has been communicated as the plan for several weeks." So, at least in a vacuum, this doesn't look like a serious concern. But we'll continue to keep a close eye on the situation.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that the Cardinals have yet to make a contract offer to QB Kyler Murray. Murray's camp, meanwhile, recently pulled their proposal off the table. Murray is set to make just $5.5 million in 2022. "I do not expect Murray to play on that number, which brings the possibility of a holdout into play if things don't change," Pelissero adds. We'll continue to keep a close eye on this situation. Murray carries some added risk in fantasy drafts until it's resolved.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen describes the "odd vibe" between QB Kyler Murray and the Cardinals as "alarming." Mort hears that Murray is "frustrated" with the organization and believes "he’s been framed as the scapegoat" for the playoff loss to the Rams. Murray, meanwhile, is described as "self-centered, immature and a finger pointer." Stuff like this tends to pass as we get further removed from the end of the season. We'd be surprised if Murray isn't back with the Cardinals in 2022 but will keep you updated on the situation.

Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (ankle) is active for today’s game vs. the Bears. It’ll be his first action since Week 8. Murray remained limited in practice all week and will be playing in less-than-ideal weather conditions today. WR DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) is active but might be limited. Add it all up and Murray looks like a mid-to-low-end QB1 for Week 13. Check out exactly where he sits in the rankings.

Cardinals HC Kliff Kingsbury told NFL Network's Stacey Dales that QB Kyler Murray (ankle) and WR DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) will play vs. the Bears today. Kingsbury had previously called both guys game-time decisions, so they evidently checked out well today. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported this morning that Hopkins could be limited today, so he still carries more risk than usual in Week 13 fantasy lineups.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (ankle) is expected to play vs. the Bears today. Murray was limited in practice all week and listed as questionable, but he's been trending toward returning for this one for a while. Murray ranks 3rd among QBs in fantasy points per game but comes with added risk this week. It'll be his first action since Week 8, WR DeAndre Hopkins is expected to be limited and the weather in Chicago could be an issue.

Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Bears. He got in 3 limited practices this week. HC Kliff Kingsbury labeled Murray a game-time decision on Friday, but multiple reports throughout the week had Murray expected back for this one. We'll find out for sure around 11:30 am ET on Sunday.

Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (ankle) and WR DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) put in limited practices on Wednesday. HC Kliff Kingsbury confirmed that both guys are on track to return for this weekend's game vs. the Bears, barring a setback over the next few days. We'll keep an eye on them, but Murray and Hopkins can be penciled into Week 13 fantasy lineups for now.

Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (ankle) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Seahawks. He’ll get a Week 12 bye and figures to be back for Week 13’s meeting with the Bears. QB Colt McCoy (pectoral) is active and gets his 3rd straight start today.
