Most leagues feature 10 or 12 owners, but not all of those owners know what to do with their late-round picks. Dave Richard has uncovered some sweet sleepers to help round out your roster (even if you've already drafted).
Peterson (rest) did not suit up for the Cardinals' third preseason game Sunday against the Texans.
It's unclear why he didn't play, but Peterson will spend the afternoon in street clothes while Brandon Williams, Mike Jenkins and Justin Bethel assume the majority of the work with the starting unit. Peterson is fully expected to be ready for the regular season opener, though.
Williams (unspecified reason) wasn't in uniform in advance of Sunday's preseason game against the Texans.
Per the report, Williams was "watched carefully by RB coach Stump Mitchell and trainers Tom Reed and Chad Cook early before the game," thus suggesting that the Cardinals' depth running back is dealing with an undisclosed injury.
Head coach Bruce Arians said Brown (concussion) has been medically cleared to play, Darren Urban of AZcardinals.com reports.
While Brown has reportedly gotten the go-ahead from team doctors, head coach Bruce Arians said the wideout's availability is still to be determined. If Brown did indeed clear the NFL's concussion protocol, it must have happened at some point Tuesday, as Arians said Monday that Brown was still bothered by headaches. Barring any late setbacks, Brown should plenty of have time to prepare for Week 1 against the Patriots, despite missing the entire preseason. If he isn't back at practice next week, then it will be time for owners to worry.
Riddick has suffered a torn oblique, which is accompanied by an unknown timetable, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
Riddick didn't take the practice field Sunday, and the culprit is now clear. After failing to log one snap as a rookie in 2015, he had his work cut out for him in camp due to the offseason pickup of pass rusher Chandler Jones. The Cardinals likely aren't considering cutting bait at this point, but the current injury certainly doesn't do Riddick any favors.
Fitzgerald (knee) is not slated to play in Sunday's preseason game against the Texans, Darren Urban of AZcardinals.com reports.
Fitzgerald, who has been dealing with a minor MCL sprain, was actually on the field during early warmups with his helmet on, catching passes. Per the report, the veteran wideout "was moving around fine," with the decision to hold him out of action Sunday presumably precautionary in nature.
Okafor has opted to avoid surgery and play with a torn biceps, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Okafor sustained the injury in Tuesday's practice, the second such torn biceps in his three-year career. In 2013, surgery was ordered up for the then rookie, but examinations may have revealed that the tear was less severe than three seasons ago. The pass rusher has totaled 10 sacks the past two campaigns, while logging 66 and 58.5 percent of the defensive snaps, but the addition of Chandler Jones along with the injury could very well result in a scaled-back role.
Head coach Bruce Arians has given Mathieu (knee) clearance to play, but the defensive back is unlikely to take the field for Thursday's preseason game versus the Broncos, Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports.
Finally in the latter stages of his recovery from a torn ACL, Mathieu requires practice reps to get up to speed, but Arians nonetheless expects him to be out there for the Cardinals' Week 1 contest against the Patriots.
Brooks is questionable for Friday's preseason contest against the Raiders, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. On Tuesday, head coach Bruce Arians told Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic that Brooks is dealing with a quadriceps injury.
Arizona's secondary is banged-up at the moment, but an ailment won't allow Brooks to make a mark in the exhibition opener. He's so far gone through a journey personified by an undrafted free agent -- signed with the Cards in May of 2015, released after his first preseason, signed to the Cards' practice squad, bumped to the active roster last October, waived/injured in November, released from IR on Dec. 29, and signed to a futures contract in late January -- and a similar path this season isn't out of the question.
Square has been suspended four games by the NFL, the team's official site reports.
Square's suspension stems from a violation of the league's substance abuse policy. Early reports indicate that Square did not test positive for a specific substance, but the 27-year-old missed a scheduled test. Both Ryan Carrethers and Tenny Palepoi are likely to fill in during his absence.
Liuget is feeling "much better" after he underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in December, Micahel Gehlken of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Liuget had tallied 34 tackles (28 solo) and three sacks before his Week 13 injury against the Broncos. The 26-year-old, who signed a five-year extension prior to last year's training camp, reportedly weighed between 313-315 pounds throughout the 2015 season, but is expecting to cut his weight down to 295 by the season opener. With the Chargers selecting Joey Bosa with the third overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, Liuget and Bosa could form an impressive duo on the defensive line capable of wreaking havoc on opposing offenses should both players stay healthy.
Verrett (hamstring) has begun working out with fellow Chargers teammates, ESPN's Eric D. Williams reports.
Verrett, who missed the Chargers final game of the regular season due to a hamstring injury, was spotted working out with a few members of the secondary at a training facility in California. San Diego's leader in interceptions last year, Verrett is expected to take over more of a leadership role on defense with veteran captain Eric Weddle widely expected to sign with another team during the offseason.
