Cardinals RB James Conner (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Falcons. He was limited in practice all week after being designated to return from IR. HC Jonathan Gannon said Friday that Conner is “trending in the right direction” to play this weekend. We’ll look for further updates on Conner’s status – and how much work he might be in for in his first action since Week 5. RB Emari Demercado (toe) has been ruled out for Sunday’s game.

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 WR Michael Wilson (shoulder) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. It gives the rookie a shot to return for this weekend's game vs. the Falcons. Wilson will carry more fantasy intrigue with QB Kyler Murray set to get back under center, but he's still not a reliable fantasy play at this point.

Cardinals RB James Conner (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He's seemingly on track to return for this weekend's game vs. the Falcons, but we'll keep an eye on his status over the next few days. RB Emari Demercado (toe) remained sidelined on Wednesday after missing last weekend's game.

The Cardinals have officially designated RB James Conner to return from IR. That allows Conner to practice with the team this week. Arizona now has three weeks to decide whether to return him to the active roster. Signs have pointed to Conner returning to game action this week against the Falcons. We'll watch the RB's status throughout the week.

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 WR Michael Wilson (shoulder) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Browns. He figures to be replaced by WR Zach Pascal. Wilson’s absence could mean an extra target or two for WR Marquise Brown, WR Rondale Moore, and TE Trey McBride.

The Cardinals elevated RB Corey Clement from the practice squad. He joins Keaontay Ingram and Tony Jones in Arizona's backfield for Sunday's game vs. the Browns. It remains a situation to try to avoid in fantasy lineups.

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 WR Michael Wilson (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Browns. He didn’t practice all week and shouldn’t be in Week 9 fantasy lineups. Wilson’s absence would leave Zach Pascal as Arizona’s No. 2 outside WR and potentially mean extra targets for WR Marquise Brown, WR Rondale Moore, and TE Trey McBride.

Cardinals RB Emari Demercado (toe) missed practice all week and has been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Browns. RB Damien Williams landed on IR earlier this week, so Arizona is down to RBs Keaontay Ingram and Tony Jones. The Cardinals are 10-point road underdogs with a 14.25-point implied total against the Browns' 8th-ranked RB defense, so you're best off avoiding this backfield in fantasy lineups.

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.

Cardinals WR Michael Wilson (shoulder) missed his second straight practice on Thursday. His absence vs. the Browns this weekend would leave Zach Pascal as Arizona's No. 2 outside WR -- and potentially mean more targets for WR Marquise Brown, WR Rondale Moore, and TE Trey McBride.

Cardinals RB Emari Demercado (toe) missed his second straight practice on Thursday. He's seemingly in danger of missing this weekend's game vs. the Browns. RB Damien Williams was placed on IR earlier this week, leaving Keaontay Ingram and Tony Jones as Arizona's healthy RBs. We'll update Demercado's status again tomorrow.

Arizona Cardinals HC Jonathan Gannon says RB James Conner is "getting ready to go, and he's excited to get back when he can get back and play," according to Tyler Drake of ArizonaSports.com. This week will mark Conner's fourth game on IR, so it sounds like he should be ready to return for a Week 10 home date with the Falcons. We'll obviously have to watch reports on his expected role coming off the knee injury. But you can bet Arizona will be looking to get him back to workhorse use as soon as possible. Neither Emari Demercado nor any other Arizona reserve RB has done anything to challenge the status of a healthy Conner. It's worth noting that Conner would face the eighth-toughest remaining RB schedule if he does return in Week 10, according to our adjusted fantasy points allowed. The biggest potential trouble spots look like a Week 14 bye (duh) and a Week 17 visit to Philadelphia.

Cardinals RB Emari Demercado (toe) did not practice on Wednesday. We don't have any details on the injury -- or whether he's in danger of missing Sunday's game vs. the Browns. With RB James Conner still on IR, Demercado's absence would leave Arizona's backfield to RBs Keontay Ingram and Damien Williams. We'll update Demercado's status again tomorrow.

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.

Cardinals CB Kei'Trel Clark is inactive for today's game against the Ravens. He wasn't on the injury report this week, so that makes Clark a healthy scratch. Marco Wilson and Starling Thomas started at the outside CB spots for Arizona last week. CB Antonio Hamilton returns this week after missing Week 7. Clark is safe to drop from IDP rosters.
