Cardinals TE Trey McBride roped in 3 of 6 targets for 34 receiving yards and a TD in Week 18 vs. the Seahawks. The second-year pass-catcher ends this season ranking seventh among TEs in receiving yards (825), sixth in targets (106), and tied for fifth in receptions (81). This production is even more impressive considering McBride only played in eight games with QB Kyler Murray this season. Moving forward, dynasty managers should consider McBride among the very best at the TE position, especially given he won’t even turn 25 until November 2024.

Cardinals RB James Conner tallied 27 carries for 150 rushing yards and a TD in Week 18’s loss vs. the Seahawks. He also added 4 receptions for 54 yards as a pass-catcher in Sunday’s contest. Injuries have marred the veteran throughout his career, though 2023 marks the first time Conner has been able to amass over 1,000 rushing yards in a season, ending the year with 1,040 across 13 games. Though he’ll play in 2024 at age 29, Conner has averaged no fewer than 15.4 PPR points per game over the past three seasons and should be considered a solid low-cost buy for dynasty managers in contending windows. The only item worth being mindful of is that the Cardinals have a potential out in Conner’s contract that would cost a mere $3 million should they choose to move on from him this offseason.

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.

The Cardinals are placing WR Marquise Brown (heel) on IR, knocking him out for the final two games of the season. It was a frustrating season for Brown, who dealt with inconsistent QB play for the first nine games of the season and then struggled connecting with QB Kyler Murray over his last few outings. Brown finishes his age-26 season with career lows in yards per game (41.0), catch rate (51%), yards per target (5.7), and yards per route (1.25). Brown is set to hit free agency in March. We'll see how his market develops and where he ultimately lands, but he's a nice buy-low in dynasty leagues right now. Brown finished top 30 among WRs in PPR points per game in both 2021 and 2022.

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 WR Marquise Brown (heel) did not practice on Wednesday. We're not expecting him to play vs. the Eagles this weekend but will keep you updated on his status. Michael Wilson, Rondale Moore, and Greg Dortch operated as Arizona's top three WRs with Wilson out last week.

Cardinals WR Greg Dortch (shoulder) is active for today’s game vs. the Bears. He only got in a limited practice on Friday and would be very tough to trust in fantasy lineups.

Cardinals WR Greg Dortch (shoulder) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Bears. He only got in a limited practice on Friday. Dortch can’t be trusted in fantasy lineups if he ends up playing. His absence would leave Michael Wilson, Rondale Moore, and Zach Pascal as Arizona’s top three WRs.

Cardinals WR Marquise Brown (heel) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Bears. He's been banged up for a while, so it wouldn't be surprising if Arizona just shuts him down the rest of the way. We'll see how WR Greg Dortch (shoulder) is listed on the final injury report later today. He didn't practice on Wednesday or Thursday. The Cardinals could be down to WRs Michael Wilson, Rondale Moore, and Zach Pascal this weekend.

Cardinals WRs Marquise Brown (heel) and Greg Dortch (shoulder) missed their second straight practices on Thursday. They're both in danger of missing this weekend's game vs. the Bears, which would leave Michael Wilson, Rondale Moore, and Zach Pascal as Arizona's likely top three WRs. TE Trey McBride is the only Arizona pass catcher that can be trusted in Week 16 fantasy lineups.

Cardinals WR Marquise Brown (heel) did not practice on Wednesday. He's been dealing with this heel injury for a few weeks now and aggravated it last week. We're projecting Brown to miss Sunday's game vs. the Bears.

Cardinals TE Trey McBride finished Week 15 vs. the 49ers with 10 catches on 11 targets for 102 receiving yards. The second-year pass-catcher has been nothing short of dominant over the past several weeks. Since QB Kyler Murray returned to play in Week 10, McBride leads all TEs in receptions (7.3) and receiving yards (85) per game and ranks second in PPR points per game (17.3). In that span of five games, he’s also dipped below 60 receiving yards in a game just one time. There’s no doubt that McBride belongs entrenched in fantasy lineups the rest of the way.

Cardinals WR Marquise Brown is questionable to return to Sunday's game vs. the 49ers with a heel injury. He's been battling this issue for a few weeks now. We'll see if he's able to re-enter this one. Brown did not draw a target before exiting.

Cardinals WR Marquise Brown (heel) is active for today’s game vs. the 49ers. He got in just limited practices on Thursday and Friday, so it’s safe to assume he’s still not at 100%. Brown sits in fringe WR3 territory in the Week 15 Rankings. WR Michael Wilson (neck) is also active but would be a very shaky fantasy play in his first action since Week 10.

Cardinals WR Marquise Brown (heel) is expected to play vs. the 49ers today, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Brown only got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday, so it's safe to assume that he's still not at 100%. He's just a low-end WR3 in a tough spot against San Francisco. WR Michael Wilson (neck) is also expected to play today, per Schefter.

Cardinals WR Michael Wilson (neck) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the 49ers. The rookie has been out since Week 10 and couldn’t be trusted in season-long fantasy lineups if he plays on Sunday.
