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.

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.

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.

The Arizona Cardinals will be approximately $2.2 million over a projected $140 million NFL salary cap in 2015 following the restructuring of WR Larry Fitzgerald's contract. Fitzgerald's new deal saves Arizona nearly $13 million in cap space.

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.
