  • Eno Benjamin Viewed As "Lock" For RB2 Role

    Arizona Cardinals running back Eno Benjamin is viewed as a "lock" to win the backup running back job out of training camp, according to Blake Murphy of Revenge of the Birds. Benjamin has been competing with veteran Darrel Williams for the No. 2 role behind incumbent starter James Conner. The backup role became vacant when Chase Edmonds departed for Miami this past offseason. Benjamin hasn't seen much usage throughout two pro seasons, totaling just 118 rushing yards, 42 receiving yards, and one touchdown. However, he has looked great throughout camp, and it appears that his time has come to climb to No. 2 on the depth chart.

  • Kyler Murray Returns To Camp On Saturday

    Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray (illness) is back with the team on Saturday after recently dealing with COVID-19. While head coach Kliff Kingsbury initially reported that Murray had "mild" symptoms, he will still take things slow with his signal-caller. The 24-year-old also had a minor wrist injury before the diagnosis, so there's a good chance he won't see the field during Friday's preseason opener in Cincinnati. As a result, backup Colt McCoy may get some work, with Trace McSorley and Jarrett Guarantano also expected to line up under center.

  • Trey McBride Dealing With Sore Back

    Arizona Cardinals rookie tight end Trey McBride (back) has been resting the last couple days at training camp because of a sore back, according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury. The head coach wants McBride to be ready for the first preseason game next week on Aug. 12 so that he can start getting repetitions and acclimated to the speed of the NFL game. McBride was the first tight end to come off the board in this year's draft in the second round, but it will still be a uphill climb for him to come away with much fantasy value in his first NFL season while being behind Zach Ertz on the depth chart. The Cardinals also have Maxx Williams, who just returned from his knee injury, and he was having a career year in 2021 before his injury.

  • Maxx Williams Activated From PUP List

    The Arizona Cardinals activated tight end Maxx Williams (knee) from the Physically Unable to Perform list on Thursday, and he is dressed for practice at training camp. Williams has been sidelined since tearing his ACL in Week 5 of last year. Before the injury, he was off to the best start of his career with 16 catches for 193 yards. But unless Zach Ertz misses time with injury in 2022, Williams probably isn't worth considering for fantasy rosters. In his three seasons with Arizona, the 28-year-old has 39 receptions on 46 targets for 497 yards and three touchdowns in 30 games (23 starts). In seven NFL seasons with the Cardinals and Baltimore Ravens, Williams has hauled in just six touchdowns in 72 games.

  • Marquise Brown Arrested For Criminal Speeding

    Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Marquise Brown was arrested on Wednesday morning on criminal-speeding charges. Brown was not present with the team for Wednesday's practice, but he's also been working his way back from a hamstring injury that put him on the Non-Football Injury list to begin training camp. Hollywood was activated from the NFI list on Tuesday, and the team was hoping that he could return by the weekend. It's unclear if Brown's arrest for criminal speeding will lead to a suspension from the league, but it's definitely not great news as he looks to put his best foot forward with his new organization. In 2021 with the Ravens, the 25-year-old had a career-high 1,008 yards and six touchdowns, and he's expected to be Arizona's No. 1 receiver until DeAndre Hopkins finishes his six-game suspension.

  • D.J. Humphries Gets Three-Year Extension

    Arizona Cardinals offensive tackle D.J. Humphries has received a three-year extension from the organization. The 28-year-old was heading into the final year of his contract, but that changed quickly. Now, Humphries will remain with the Cardinals after signing a three-year deal worth $66.8 million. The former first round pick has been a reliable option at left tackle over the last three seasons. Before that, Humphries dealt with injury issues, but has seemingly put those behind him. He appears committed to finishing his career with the Cardinals.

  • Kyler Murray Could Return By End Of The Week

    Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said that quarterback Kyler Murray (illness) is "feeling better" and is hoping to have his quarterback back at practice in training camp by the end of the week. Murray has been Zooming into meetings after testing positive for COVID-19. The 24-year-old also dealt with a minor right wrist injury in practice late last week, but he appears to be fine. In the meantime, veteran Colt McCoy will handle first-team duties in practices. Murray had a disappointing end to last year in a blowout loss to the division-rival Los Angeles Rams, but he finally got a monster contract extension recently and is poised to re-enter the QB1 ranks in fantasy in 2022.

  • Cardinals Activate Marquise Brown From NFI List

    The Arizona Cardinals activated wide receiver Marquise Brown (hamstring) from the Non-Football Injury list on Tuesday. Brown began training camp on the sidelines last week due to a hamstring injury he suffered in private workouts. But his injury was never serious and the Cardinals didn't expect him to miss too much practice time in training camp. Now that he's back, Brown can continue to develop chemistry with quarterback Kyler Murray, who he played with in college as he prepares to be Arizona's No. 1 wideout with DeAndre Hopkins suspended for the first six games of the season. Brown had his first 1,000-yard season last year in Baltimore and will be a low-end WR2 target for fantasy managers heading into his first year in Arizona.

  • Kyler Murray Tests Positive For COVID-19

    Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said that quarterback Kyler Murray tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday and will be out at least five days. The good news is that Murray is experiencing only mild symptoms, so he should be full-go in training camp practices once he returns in five days. The offseason started off on shaky ground between the Cardinals and the 24-year-old, but they recently came together to agree on a five-year contract extension worth around $230.5 million. Murray will be without receiver DeAndre Hopkins for the first six games of 2022, but the team added Murray's former college teammate, Marquise Brown, who should be able to pick up the slack in the receiving game early in the year. Murray is a top-five fantasy QB1.

  • Latest On DeAndre Hopkins' PED Suspension

    In an offseason filled with headlines at the receiver position in particular, one newsworthy item of a different nature was the six-game suspension handed down to DeAndre Hopkins. The cause of the ban – a prohibited substance being found in his bloodstream – remains a talking point for multiple reasons.  Hopkins was suspended for having Ostarine […]

  • Kyler Murray Misses Practice On Saturday

    Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray (wrist) didn't practice on Saturday. The Arizona Republic reported the 24-year-old experienced wrist discomfort after Friday's session. However, head coach Kliff Kingsbury attempted to extinguish any speculation by blaming Murray's absence on the amount he's been throwing as of late. Nonetheless, while the ailment may not be anything serious, it's still worth monitoring moving ahead.

  • Cardinals Hope Marquise Brown Will Return Next Week

    Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said that he's hoping wide receiver Marquise Brown (hamstring) will be able to return to practice at training camp sometime next week. Brown opened camp on the Non-Football Injury list with a hamstring injury, but the Cardinals don't expect him to be out for long. That's good news, since the 25-year-old is looking to gain chemistry with quarterback Kyler Murray as the team's No. 1 receiving threat with DeAndre Hopkins set to serve a six-game suspension to open the year. Brown had his first 1,000-yard season and added six touchdowns with the Ravens in 2021, and he should be a stable WR2 for fantasy managers in his new home.

  • Kyler Murray Addresses Independent Study Contract Clause

    8:15pm: And like that, the clause is no more. Rapoport tweets that the Cardinals have removed the “independent study” clause in Murray’s contract. “After seeing the distraction it created, we removed the addendum from the contract,” the Cardinals said in a statement (via ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Twitter). “It was clearly perceived in ways that […]

  • Kyler Murray No Longer Has "Independent Study" Clause

    Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray recently agreed to a lucrative extension with the club. Interestingly enough, the contract also contained an "independent study" clause, requiring Murray to devote four hours each week to reviewing materials provided to him by the coaching staff in preparation for an upcoming game. However, on Thursday, the organization released a statement indicating it is eliminating the addendum after "seeing the distraction it created" while also acknowledging its "confidence" in the young signal-caller. With both sides seemingly now on good terms, Murray can turn his attention toward claiming an MVP and winning a championship. He has top-five potential in all fantasy formats, assuming he remains healthy and away from off-the-field distractions.

  • Antwaun Woods Signs With Cardinals

    Free-agent defensive tackle Antwaun Woods inked a one-year deal with the Cardinals on Thursday. The 29-year-old has been in the league since 2016, suiting up for the Titans, Cowboys, and most recently, the Colts. During that span, he has compiled 88 total tackles and 2.5 sacks across 47 games. While Woods has a shot to see some playing time in Arizona this season, he probably won't do enough to benefit IDP managers.

  • Marquise Brown Expected Back Soon

    Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said that wide receiver Marquise Brown (hamstring) injured his hamstring last week, but he's expected to return to practice soon. Brown was placed on the Non-Football Injury list to begin training camp on Tuesday, but he shouldn't be out for long. That's good news, as the 25-year-old needs all the repetitions he can get to gain chemistry with quarterback Kyler Murray in his first year in Arizona. With DeAndre Hopkins suspended for the first six games of the season, Brown is expected to step up as the No. 1 receiver in the passing attack. Brown's decline in the second half last year with Baltimore should have fantasy managers hesitant that he can be a true No. 1 wideout for an entire season. There's more upside in Arizona's offense, but Brown is better suited as a low-end WR2.

  • Cardinals Hopeful Maxx Williams Will Return Soon

    Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said he remains hopeful that tight end Maxx Williams (knee) will be able to return from the Physically Unable to Perform list before the end of training camp. Williams tore his ACL in Week 5 last year. "He's worked his tail off," Kingsbury said. "There have been a couple guys throughout the league, it takes a year-and-a-half, two years to come back. I'd say he's ahead of schedule. Not saying he'll be ready to go or how that looks, but from where it started to where it is now I couldn't be more impressed." The 28-year-old has 39 receptions (46 targets) for 497 yards and three touchdowns in three years with Arizona, so he's unlikely to become a fantasy asset in 2022, even if Zach Ertz misses time with injury.

  • Marquise Brown Not Ready To Practice At Camp

    The Arizona Cardinals placed wide receiver Marquise Brown (hamstring) on the Non-Football Injury list on Tuesday. He'll be eligible to come off the list whenever he's ready to practice. It's bad news for a player that has yet to play with the team after being acquired in a draft-day trade with the Baltimore Ravens. The 25-year-old will be looking to cement himself as one of quarterback Kyler Murray's top targets to begin the season, with DeAndre Hopkins suspended for the first six games. Brown should be the team's top wideout to open the year, but Arizona also has receivers A.J. Green, Rondale Moore and Antoine Wesley and tight end Zach Ertz to catch passes. Brown had his first 1,000-yard season in 2021 and has scored 21 times in his first three NFL seasons. He's in the WR2 picture but will lose fantasy value once Hopkins returns to the fold.

  • Cardinals Sign Victor Bolden

    The Arizona Cardinals signed USFL standout wide receiver and championship-game MVP Victor Boldento an undisclosed one-year deal on Friday. Bolden is a former undrafted free agent from Oregon State who began his NFL career with the San Francisco 49ers in 2017, mostly returning kicks on special teams. In his two years in the league with San Fran and the Buffalo Bills in 2018, he only caught one of four targets for 10 yards. Bolden excelled in the USFL in the spring, though, recording 42 catches for 415 yards and one touchdown in nine games. The 27-year-old will mostly contribute on special teams, though, as he tries to win a roster spot with Arizona this summer.
