Shark Bites

Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (ankle) is a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt with the Giants, according to HC Kliff Kingsbury. Kirk was limited in practice all week but is "still not all the way there," Kingsbury said Friday. The good news is that we'll get Kirk's game status by noon ET on Sunday. He'll be a risk/reward fantasy play if active.

Cardinals HC Kliff Kingsbury labeled RB David Johnson (ankle) a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt with the Giants. Johnson got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday -- but Kingsbury admitted that he wouldn't have been able to play if the game was on Friday. We'll see how much progress D.J. makes over the next couple of days and should get an update on his status Sunday morning. Cardinals-Giants kicks off at 1 pm ET. If Johnson ends up sitting, Chase Edmonds will step in as Arizona's feature back and become a strong fantasy play.

Cardinals RB David Johnson (ankle) returned to practice on Thursday. It looks like Wednesday was just a rest day. We'll get another update tomorrow, but D.J. should be fine for this weekend's game vs. the Giants.

Cardinals RB David Johnson didn't practice on Wednesday and is listed on the injury report with an ankle. It was a back issue that limited D.J. in practice last week. This could just be a rest day for Johnson, and we'll find out more tomorrow. But RB Chase Edmonds should be stashed in pretty much all fantasy leagues.

Cardinals LBs Haason Reddick (shoulder) and Terrell Suggs (back) are active for today's game against the Falcons. So both are in play for your IDP lineups if you were waiting for them.

Cardinals RB David Johnson (back) is active for today’s game against the Falcons. The back issue obviously adds risk to his Week 6 outlook. Arizona might scale back his volume a bit, and there’s a chance the back locks up on him again. But D.J. retains RB1 upside in this plus matchup.

Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the Falcons. He put in 3 limited practices this week, so we’re tentatively expecting him back for Week 7. WR Damiere Byrd (hamstring) is active.

Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (ankle) is not expected to play against the Falcons today, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Kirk was limited in practice all week and has a good shot to return for Week 7. We'll see if WR Damiere Byrd (hamstring) is able to play today, but WR KeeSean Johnson will be the best target bet among Arizona wideouts not named Larry Fitzgerald.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Cardinals RB David Johnson is expected to play against the Falcons today -- "barring a setback" -- despite the back injury that rendered him questionable. An active Johnson belongs in fantasy lineups against the defense that allowed 53 points to the Texans a week ago. Chase Edmonds can still be a deeper PPR option, but last week marked the 1st time this season he collected more than 6 touches.

Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons after a limited week of practice. HC Kliff Kingsbury said Friday that Kirk will be a game-time decision. Cardinals-Falcons doesn't kick off until 4:05 pm ET, but hopefully we get an update on Kirk Sunday morning. He'll be a risk/reward fantasy play if active. WR Damiere Byrd (hamstring) was also limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable.

Cardinals LBs Haason Reddick (shoulder) and Terrell Suggs (back) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons. Reddick put in limited practices the past 2 days after sitting out Wednesday and seems to be trending toward playing. Suggs missed the full week of practice but also barely practiced last week. He still played three-quarters of that game. We'll check on the status of both players Sunday.

Cardinals RB David Johnson (back) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Falcons. He put in a limited practice on Friday after sitting out the previous 2 days. Johnson told reporters that he felt good in Friday’s practice but will be a game-time decision. NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo, meanwhile, hears that D.J. is “likely” to play. Cardinals-Falcons doesn’t kick off until 4:05 pm ET, but we’ll look for an update on Johnson Sunday morning. Chase Edmonds will operate as Arizona’s feature back if Johnson doesn’t play.

Cardinals GM Steve Keim said in a Friday morning radio appearance that there's "a chance" RB David Johnson (back) plays against the Falcons this weekend. "I'm not 100 percent sure, but I'm certainly encouraged," Keim said. Johnson didn't practice on Wednesday or Thursday and seems legitimately questionable for Sunday's game. We'll get another update on his status this afternoon.

Cardinals RB David Johnson (back) missed practice again on Thursday. As HC Kliff Kingsbury told us, Johnson is in real danger of missing this weekend's game against the Falcons. His absence would leave Chase Edmonds as a strong fantasy play as Arizona's lead back in a plus matchup.

Cardinals RB David Johnson (back) did not practice on Wednesday. He was able to play through the issue last week but supposedly isn't a lock for Sunday's game against the Falcons. We'll get another D.J. update on Thursday afternoon.

Cardinals WRs Christian Kirk (ankle) and Damiere Byrd (hamstring) were limited in Wednesday's practice. That gives both guys a shot to return for this weekend's game against the Falcons. They've both been basically full-time players for Arizona when healthy.

Cardinals HC Kliff Kingsbury refused to guarantee that RB David Johnson (back) will be available for this weekend's game against the Falcons. Johnson battled through back tightness in yesterday's win over the Bengals and will be monitored throughout this week, Kingsbury said. We'll obviously be keeping a close eye on this, but RB Chase Edmonds needs to be owned in all fantasy leagues in the meantime. He'd be a strong Week 6 fantasy play if Johnson is out.

Cardinals RB David Johnson said his back locked up on him during the 1st half of Sunday's win over the Bengals. “It’s good. I just need to get a good rest day tomorrow,” he added. Johnson was able to play through the issue, racking up 156 total yards. We'll keep an eye on him this week, but he should be fine for Sunday's plus matchup against the Falcons.

Cardinals OLB Terrell Suggs is active for today's game against the Bengals. He has been dealing with a back injury, which makes him a risky IDP play. There is upside for deep leagues, though.

11:10am EDT 10/6/19

Cardinals WR Damiere Byrd (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Bengals. That’ll leave WRs KeeSean Johnson, Trent Sherfield, Andy Isabella and Pharoh Cooper behind Larry Fitzgerald.
