Cardinals | Jonathan Dwyer won't return unless exonerated

Fri, 19 Sep 2014 09:14:10 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Jonathan Dwyer, who was charged in a domestic violence case involving his wife and young son, may not return to the team unless he's exonerated from his charges, according to head coach Bruce Arians. Dwyer was placed on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list, which means he can't return for the rest of the season. The Cardinals will continue to pay his $730,000 salary.

Fantasy Tip: If you own Dwyer in a deep league, it's safe to drop him at this point, since it'll likely be a while before his legal course plays out.

Cardinals | Stepfan Taylor to see more work

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 11:02:21 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Stepfan Taylor will likely see his role increased with RB Jonathan Dwyer deactivated indefinitely. Stepfan is a smaller back than Dwyer. Taylor and RB Robert Hughes have combined for two carries for four yards in two games as the team's third and fourth options. RB Andre Ellington (foot) also missed practice Wednesday, Sept. 17, and the team is hoping he can do some work Thursday, Sept. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor could see more work as the season progresses, too, if Ellington's foot injury worsens. In FantasyScore lineups this week, Taylor will cost you the minimum of $3,700, but it's probably too early to rely on him.

Cardinals | Jonathan Dwyer deactivated

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 16:58:56 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Jonathan Dwyer has been deactivated from all team activities Wednesday, Sept. 17. The team was made aware of allegations by the Phoenix police and are cooperating fully with authorities. The team plans to closely monitor the situation as it develops and evaluate additional information as it becomes available.

Fantasy Tip: It is uncertain if Dwyer has officially been deactivated for the Week 3 game, but if so, Stepfan Taylor would see a bump in fantasy value playing directly behind Andre Ellington.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington active today

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 09:16:36 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (foot) is active Sunday, Sept. 14.

Fantasy Tip: It's unknown if he will be limited, though. With QB Carson Palmer (shoulder) out, it's possible that Ellington and Jonathan Dwyer could receive more carries. Ellington is a solid RB2 at $5,500 (11% of your cap) on FantasyScore this week. Dwyer is more of a speculative flex play at $4,400 (8.8%) in Week 2, but he receives a boost in fantasy with Palmer out.
