  • Colt McCoy Struggles Against 49ers

    Arizona Cardinals quarterback Colt McCoy went 24-of-34 passing for 218 yards, zero touchdowns, and one interception while adding three carries for six yards rushing in their 38-10 loss to the 49ers on Monday night. The veteran signal-caller faced a lot of pressure, forcing him to make quick throws, averaging 6.4 yards per attempt. The running game was non-existent, enabling the defense to focus solely on shutting down the passing attack. The 36-year-old has now made back-to-back starts in place of Kyler Murray (hamstring), whose status for Week 12 is yet to be determined. McCoy is talented enough to sustain the weapons around him for fantasy football but does not possess much appeal in single-quarterback formats.

  • Kyler Murray Inactive For Week 11, Colt McCoy To Start

    Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray (hamstring) is officially active for Monday Night Football against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 11. He had been listed as questionable. Murray has played in eight games this season, completing 67 percent of his passes for 2,168 yards, 12 touchdowns, and six interceptions. In his absence, veteran Colt McCoy (knee) will draw his second consecutive start. He ranks as a high-end QB3 and is only worth rostering if you need a last-minute replacement for Murray.

  • Colt McCoy, Matt Prater Cleared For Monday Night

    Arizona Cardinals quarterback Colt McCoy (knee) and kicker Matt Prater (right hip, illness) have been removed from the injury report and will be active for Week 11 against the San Francisco 49ers. McCoy drew his first start of the season last week in place of Kyler Murray (hamstring), who remains questionable heading into Monday night. The veteran looked solid, completing 26 passes for 238 yards, one touchdown, and zero interceptions. Meanwhile, Prater has made all nine extra points and all eight field goals this season, including three from beyond 40 yards.

  • Colt McCoy Practices In Full Friday

    Arizona Cardinals quarterback Colt McCoy (knee) was a full participant in the team's practice on Friday. McCoy got the start last week as Kyler Murray (hamstring) was inactive with a hamstring injury. Murray has been limited in practice this week and will likely be a game-time decision for Monday night's matchup with the San Francisco 49ers. If McCoy handles QB1 duties once again, it should not necessarily be viewed as a downgrade for the Cardinals' passing attack as the offense looked arguably as good as it has all season last week.

  • Kyler Murray, Colt McCoy Both Working Thursday

    Arizona Cardinals quarterbacks Kyler Murray (hamstring) and Colt McCoy (knee) were both seen working at practice on Thursday. Head coach Kliff Kingsbury deemed both signal-callers as day-to-day on Wednesday and the Cardinals are hoping one will be available to play on Monday night against the San Francisco 49ers. Fantasy managers are hoping it's Murray, who was held out of the Week 10 win over the Los Angeles Rams. While the 25-year-old appears to be making progress, there's still a chance he's held out for a second straight game. If Murray returns, he'll be a midrange QB1 against a Niners defense that is one of the best units in football. We'll continue to keep a close eye on Murray's and McCoy's practice status the rest of the week.

  • Kyler Murray, Colt McCoy Both Day-To-Day

    Arizona Cardinals quarterbacks Kyler Murray (hamstring) and Colt McCoy (knee) are both day-to-day, head coach Kliff Kingsbury said on Wednesday. Kingsbury is hoping that at least one of them will be available for the Monday night divisional clash against the San Francisco 49ers. Murray did not play in the Week 10 win over the Los Angeles Rams, and fantasy managers will need to monitor the practices statuses of both Murray and McCoy this week. The 25-year-old Murray will be a midrange QB1 in fantasy if he returns to action, but he'll be much more risky this week if he's questionable for the Monday night game. McCoy went 26-for-37 for 238 yards and a touchdown in the win over the Rams, but he'd be nothing more than a desperation QB2 in superflex leagues if he makes another start in Week 11.

  • Colt McCoy Throws For 238 Yards In Win

    Arizona Cardinals quarterback Colt McCoy completed 26-of-37 passes for 238 yards and a touchdown as he led the Cardinals to a 27-17 win in Kyler Murray's absence. He threw a touchdown to A.J. Green and was able to finish the game with zero turnovers, as he came up big for the struggling Cardinals' offense. He was briefly injured but was able to return and close out a huge win for the Cardinals. It is yet to be determined if he will be under center next week against the 49ers, but Murray's injury doesn't seem to be something that will keep him on the shelf.

  • Colt McCoy Returns Against The Rams

    Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals quarterback Colt McCoy (undisclosed) has returned to Sunday's game against the Rams. The veteran suffered what looked to be a hamstring injury, opening the door for Trace McSorley to enter the contest. Fortunately, the injury wasn't serious, which is good news considering the Cardinals entered Week 10 without Kyler Murray (hamstring).

  • Trace McSorley Takes Over For Injured Colt McCoy

    Arizona Cardinals quarterback Colt McCoy (undisclosed) exited Sunday's game against the Rams with an apparent hamstring injury. The veteran was starting for Kyler Murray (hamstring), so now No. 3 signal-caller Trace McSorley is in under center. Fantasy managers should consider McCoy questionable to return,. If he doesn't make it back, he'll finish with 157 yards and a touchdown off 20-for-31 passing.

  • Kyler Murray Officially Inactive, Colt McCoy To Start

    Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray (hamstring) is officially inactive for Week 10 against the Los Angeles Rams. He tested his injury pregame and ultimately established that he wouldn't be able to play. 36-year-old Colt McCoy will start in his place, ranking as a QB3 in fantasy football.

  • Colt McCoy Likely To Start

    Arizona Cardinals quarterback Colt McCoy is likely to get the start under center for Sunday's Week 10 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams. The Cardinals current starter Kyler Murray (hamstring) appears unlikely to suit up for this game. The team claims that Murray will test out his hamstring pregame before they make a final decision. However, friends of McCoy called Saturday night to purchase tickets for this upcoming game. It sounds increasingly likely that McCoy is going to get the starting nod. The 36-year-old probably doesn't have much left in the tank. The absence of Murray would be a significant hit to the fantasy value of DeAndre Hopkins and the other receivers on this roster. The Cardinals are likely going to go run-heavy with short passes, assuming McCoy does start. Fantasy managers should look elsewhere for a streaming option because McCoy doesn't offer much upside.

  • Cardinals Activate QB Colt McCoy From IR, Cut QB Trace McSorley

    The Cardinals’ preferred backup quarterback will be available for the first time this season. The team activated Colt McCoy from IR and released quarterback Trace McSorley.

  • Colt McCoy Activated From Injured Reserve

    Arizona Cardinals quarterback Colt McCoy (calf) was placed on injured reserve ahead of their season-opener against the Chiefs. The 27-year-old has been activated from the IR list, opening the 21-day window for him to start practicing. Kyler Murray remains the team's starting quarterback, but should he miss any time, the veteran signal-caller would be the next man up ahead of Trace McSorley. The Texas product was forced into action last season for three games, averaging 228 passing yards per game with three total passing touchdowns. While he is a competent NFL backup, he is not a player to add or stash for fantasy football outside of deeper superflex leagues.

  • Colt McCoy Placed On Injured Reserve

    The Arizona Cardinals placed quarterback Colt McCoy (calf) on Injured Reserve on Wednesday and promoted Trace McSorley to the active roster from the practice squad in a corresponding move. McCoy will now miss at least the first four games of the regular season after recently suffering a strained calf. With McCoy now out of action for at least the first four games, McSorley will serve as the direct backup to starter Kyler Murray early in the 2022 season. The 27-year-old signal-caller has played in just three games (no starts) in his two seasons in the NFL with the Baltimore Ravens, going 3-for-10 for 90 yards and one touchdown. The Cardinals will be in real trouble if Murray is injured early on and McSorley is forced into starting duties.
