Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Rams. He’s a risky fantasy play at less than 100%.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Cardinals are planning on having QB Kyler Murray (hamstring) against the Rams this afternoon. "Only way he doesn’t is if Murray’s hamstring bothers him during pregame warmups," Schefter adds. The rookie remains a shaky fantasy play at less than 100%.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Cardinals QB Kyler Murray is a "true game-time decision" for today's game against the Rams with his hamstring injury. The 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff adds risk to waiting for him, and Murray's situation will include elevated re-injury risk even if he plays. Avoid the rookie in your Week 17 lineups if you can.

Cardinals HC Kliff Kingsbury labeled QB Kyler Murray (hamstring) a game-time decision for Sunday's finale against the Rams. We're not sure why Arizona is even considering playing the rookie if he's not at 100%. Murray will be a shaky fantasy option if he ends up active. If not, it'll be Brett Hundley under center for the Cards.

Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (hamstring) will practice on Tuesday, HC Kliff Kingsbury said. The rookie's hamstring injury is obviously minor, and it looks like he has a good chance to play in Sunday's finale against the Rams.

The MRI on Cardinals QB Kyler Murray's hamstring revealed "nothing alarming ... Just a regular, minor hamstring pull," NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. "It’ll be wait-and-see on his availability this week." We'll track Murray's practice participation, but it wouldn't make much sense for Arizona to run him out there at less than 100%. QB Brett Hundley will start vs. the Rams if Murray is out.

Cardinals QB Kyler Murray hurt his right hamstring in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game. He's been replaced by QB Brett Hundley. We'll look for an update on the severity of Murray's injury.

Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Seahawks. HC Kliff Kingsbury labeled him a game-time decision on Friday, so he won’t be at 100% for this one.

Cardinals WR Christian Kirk is expected to play against the Seahawks today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Kirk is questionable with an ankle injury that kept him out of practice Wednesday before limited workouts the next 2 days. The ankle looks like more of an issue than it was last week, when Kirk put in 2 limited practices before a full Friday and no injury designation for the Week 15 game vs. Cleveland.

Cardinals HC Kliff Kingsbury labeled WR Christian Kirk (ankle) a game-time decision for Week 16. He put in limited practices on Thursday and Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. Seattle. We’ll look for an update on Kirk on Sunday morning. Cardinals-Seahawks doesn’t kick off until 4:25 pm ET.

Cardinals LB Joe Walker (rib) is active for today's game against the Browns. He's not a high-level IDP, but there's some tackle upside against a busy Cleveland backfield if you waited on him.

Cardinals ILB Joe Walker (ribs) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns. Walker put in limited practices all week and seems in line to play. He's merely a lower-level IDP option.

Cardinals S Jalen Thompson (concussion) and CB Byron Murphy (calf) are active for today's game against the Steelers. Use them as you were planning in IDP lineups.

Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Rams. He was added to the injury report on Friday but put in a full practice. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported this morning that Murray “shouldn’t be limited” vs. Los Angeles.

Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (hamstring) is expected to play against the Rams today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "Just some tightness, he shouldn’t be limited," Rapoport adds. It sounds like Murray is safe to keep in Week 13 fantasy lineups.

Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Rams. He was added to the injury report on Friday but put in a full practice. At this point, we've heard nothing to suggest that Murray is in any danger of missing this one. But any limitations on his rushing ability would be a blow to his fantasy value.

Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (hamstring) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll return for Sunday’s game against the Rams. It’s completely unclear how much work he’ll see behind new lead back Kenyan Drake, so Edmonds can’t be trusted in Week 13 fantasy lineups.

Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (hamstring) is expected back for Sunday's game against the Rams, HC Kliff Kingsbury said Monday. Edmonds turned in a huge Week 7 before going down with the hammy in Week 8. Since then, Kenyan Drake has impressed as Arizona's lead back. It's unclear how the Cards will divvy work between Drake, Edmonds and David Johnson -- although Kingsbury said, "It's on us as an offensive staff to find different ways to get them involved and get them the football." Drake is the best fantasy bet for Week 13 but should be considered a risk/reward RB3.

Cardinals HC Kliff Kingsbury said that RB David Johnson rebounded well in practice this week from a bad Week 10. "I'm proud of his effort and his focus," Kingsbury said, according to the team website. "I like where his head is at." GM Steve Keim also said Friday during a radio interview about Johnson, "He's the only one who can get himself out of this hole." We'll be interested to see whether Johnson draws a larger share of the workload against San Francisco than he did in Week 10. Johnson hit halftime of that game with 3 carries to Kenyan Drake's 4, though also none of the team's 4 RB targets. Johnson carried just 2 more times and fumbled his only reception at the end of the 3rd quarter. He then didn't touch the ball in the 4th quarter. We're betting on Drake to keep leading the work in Week 11, and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Drake "should receive the bulk of the carries and touches." Just keep in mind that this situation could still be fluid.

Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (hamstring) is out for Sunday’s game against the 49ers. Kenyan Drake out-snapped and out-touched David Johnson last week and is the better Week 11 fantasy bet.
