Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald contract update

Fri, 27 Feb 2015 13:50:31 -0800

Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald is scheduled to count 10.85 million against the salary cap in 2015 and $15.85 million in 2016. His contract will void after two seasons, and the Cardinals will have $4.85 million of dead money on their salary cap in 2017 and 2018.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald was limited to 784 yards and two touchdowns this past season but should have a better season with Carson Palmer returning. Owners probably should consider Fitzgerald as a No. 3 wide receiver in drafts next season with the chance be become a No. 2 receiver.

Cardinals | Bruce Arians disses spread offense

Fri, 27 Feb 2015 11:40:16 -0800

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians is not a proponent of spread offenses in the NFL because they often set back the development of a young quarterback, such as San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick or Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III. "That ain't playing quarterback. There's no leadership involved there. There might be leadership on the bench, but when you get them and they have to use verbiage and they have to spit the verbiage out and change the snap count, they are light years behind," Arians said.

Cardinals | Adrian Peterson to land in Arizona?

Fri, 27 Feb 2015 11:35:57 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson could be a trade option for the Arizona Cardinals with QB Carson Palmer and WR Larry Fitzgerald nearing the end of their careers in the desert. The Cardinals are built to win now, and The Arizona Republic's Kent Somers said he wouldn't be surprised if general manager Steve Keim and head coach Bruce Arians elect to pursue Peterson.

Fantasy Tip: The Cardinals have to be worried that Andre Ellington, who had just 3.3 yards per carry last year before being injured, won't be able to fill a full-time running back role. Peterson landing in Arizona would surely be intriguing. Regardless of where he's playing in 2015, Peterson will probably in consideration for fantasy football's No. 1 overall pick.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer might restructure

Wed, 25 Feb 2015 21:57:03 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer might restructure his contract to ease his cap number of $14.5 million for 2015, according to a source. As long as the team does not increase his salary they can redo the deal he just signed during the 2014 season. According to reports, a $9.5 million roster bonus might be converted to a signing bonus.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer will be the starter in Arizona if he can stay healthy. He had a nightmare season in 2014 with injuries, but he can still be very solid for fantasy owners with Arizona's strong receiving corps and the good hands of running backs out of the backfield.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington needs to build strength

Sun, 22 Feb 2015 09:42:32 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington needs to bulk up and improve his strength this offseason so he can stay healthy for an entire season, according to general manager Steve Keim. Keim said he believes Ellington can be a featured back in the NFL.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington was limited to 12 games this past season because of injuries, but he did see an increase in his carries and receptions. The Cardinals likely will add another running back during the offseason, but Ellington should have a similar role in next season. Ellington could be a middle round draft choice in fantasy drafts next season.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald can't be traded

Sat, 21 Feb 2015 11:06:15 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald had a no-trade clause included in his new four-year deal, which prevents the Cardinals from using Fitzgerald in any trade talks.

Fantasy Tip: It's no guarantee that Fitzgerald will find renewed success in light of his new deal, though he could be more motivated with a healthy Carson Palmer returning, on top of the fresh contract. Fitzgerald is coming off a two-touchdown 2014 season, the lowest of any season in his career. He should probably be considered a high-end WR3 with WR2 potential.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington injury update

Thu, 19 Feb 2015 13:50:38 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (foot) remains the focal point of the offense, according to Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians. Ellington split the injured tendon in his left foot, Arians said, according to ESPN.com's Josh Weinfuss.

Fantasy Tip: The term "split" is broad, but it likely means it was a complete tear, or Grade 3, which is the most severe. Ellington is already running and appears to be on track for a healthy 2015 season. Consider him a shaky RB2 in PPR leagues or a third back in standard formats.
