Isabella was blanked on two targets during Monday's 38-10 win in Dallas.
The Cardinals took deep shots to Isabella on both of the first two drives of the game, but he seemed to have difficulty locating those balls and wasn't heard from thereafter. Later, in the second quarter, Christian Kirk hauled in a bomb from Kyler Murray and took it to the house for an 80-yard TD. Clearly, the Cardinals aren't afraid to allow Murray to unleash such throws a few times per game, but Isabella wasn't the beneficiary on this night. Considering his standing as the team's No. 4 WR, Isabella remains a hit-or-miss option.
Isabella reeled in two of three targets for 30 yards during Sunday's 30-10 road victory against the Jets.
Isabella's long reception went for 24 yards, which was the sixth-longest play for the Cardinals on the day. After getting blanked in the season opener, he's averaged exactly three targets per game, with three of them resulting in 20 or more yards. Aside from those grabs, though, Isabella has managed 37 yards from scrimmage on eight touches. Considering his hit-or-miss status, it's difficult to trust in him for output on a weekly basis.
Isabella recorded two catches (on three targets) for three yards during Sunday's 31-21 defeat at Carolina.
After showing out with a combined 6-114-2 line on six targets between Weeks 2 and 3, Isabella put up a dud Sunday, which has been the norm through the first season-plus of his career. His cause wasn't helped by the return of Christian Kirk, causing Isabella to rank fourth in offensive snap share with 42 percent. With the receiving corps seemingly healthy at the moment, Isabella will continue to be a hit-or-miss option.
Isabella caught all four of his targets for 47 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 26-23 loss to the Lions.
Isabella stepped up in the absence of Christian Kirk (groin) as he finished second on the team in catches and receiving yards while grabbing touchdown passes in the first and third quarters. It was something of a surprising effort for Isabella, who had just one touchdown to his name heading into the game. The second-year wideout racked up 67 yards a week ago and seems to be finding a niche for himself in Arizona's pass-happy offense. It will be interesting to see how the targets are distributed next Sunday against the Panthers if Kirk returns.
Isabella is poised for a bigger workload with Christian Kirk (groin) ruled out for Sunday's game against the Lions, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Isabella has earned exactly 14 offensive plays in both of Arizona's first two games of the season, falling short of a 20-percent snap share each time. Following word that Kirk is sidelined this weekend, his 69-percent share has been cleared for the likes of Isabella and KeeSean Johnson to work with DeAndre Hopkins and Larry Fitzgerald in three-wide sets. While Johnson is set to make his season debut Sunday after spending time on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Isabella is coming off a Week 2 performance versus Washington in which he recorded catches of 54 and 13 yards on his pair of targets. The speedster will aim to add a vertical element to the Cardinals offense in the short term.
Isabella caught both targets for 67 yards in Sunday's 30-15 win over Washington.
After finishing Week 1 without a target, Isabella bounced back and caught passes of 54 and 13 yards against the Football Team. However, he played just 18 percent of the offensive snaps as the clear No. 4 receiver behind DeAndre Hopkins, Christian Kirk and Larry Fitzgerald. Isabella's speed (4.31 40-yard dash) makes him a big play waiting to happen, though, so he should be on fantasy radars in case a starter goes down.
Isabella played 14 of 82 offensive snaps (17 percent) but wasn't targeted during Sunday's 24-20 win at San Francisco.
The Cardinals operated primarily with 12 personnel, playing tight ends Dan Arnold 45 snaps on offense and Maxx Williams 43. As a result, Isabella wasn't given much opportunity behind the top wide receiver trio of DeAndre Hopkins, Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk. And despite Isabella being listed as both the No. 1 kick and punt returner on the team's unofficial depth chart, Chase Edmonds and Kirk played those roles, respectively, Week 1. Due to all the impediments to production, Isabella may not develop a consistent role without the benefit of an injury to those in front of him.
Isabella expects to line up in the slot in 2020, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Isabella did little as a rookie in 2019 despite suiting up for 15 games. He managed to flash the 4.31 speed that made him a second-round pick in the form of an 88-yard touchdown Week 9 and a 55-yard catch Week 10, but those two plays accounted for most of his rookie production. Consistent reps out of the slot could provide Isabella the path he needs for playing time Year 2, but his upside will nonetheless be capped behind DeAndre Hopkins, Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk.
Isabella hauled in nine of 13 passes for 189 yards and one touchdown in 15 games during the 2019 season.
A 2019 second-rounder, Isabella show off his game-breaking ability twice as a rookie, posting an 88-yard TD in Week 9 and a 55-yard grab Week 10. Those plays aside, he managed just 11 touches for 61 yards from scrimmage while returning five kickoffs for 105 yards. With a full offseason to develop chemistry with Kyler Murray, Isabella should have a chance to flash more often next season, especially with just two incumbent outside receivers (Trent Sherfield and Keesean Johnson) to contend with.
Isabella logged 10 offensive snaps and one special teams play during Sunday's 27-13 win at Seattle.
Isabella cannot make any headway in the Cardinals offense, going without a target for the first time since Week 8 and seventh time in 14 appearances as a rookie. Garnering a reasonable snap share has been difficult to come by, as he's surpassed 30 percent on offense just twice in 2019. With one game remaining on the slate, Isabella will aim to wrap the campaign on a high note.
Isabella lost one yard on his only carry and recorded a four-yard catch on his only target during Sunday's 38-24 victory over the Browns.
Limited by a shoulder injury in practice last week, Isabella still managed to receive his usual share of offensive snaps (25 percent). However, he's been unable to strike as he did in Weeks 9 and 10, when he had an 88-yard TD and 55-yard reception, respectively. Otherwise, Isabella has managed 71 yards from scrimmage on his 11 other touches. He'll look to end his rookie season on a high note, starting with a Week 16 matchup versus a Seahawks defense that has surrendered the seventh-most catches (184) to wide receivers through 14 games.

Isabella boasts nice peripheral numbers (23.1 YPC and 15.4 YPT) on 12 targets to date in his career. Having said that, outside receivers in the Cardinals offense under coach Kliff Kingsbury have taken a back seat to Christian Kirk and Larry Fitzgerald. As a result, Isabella is a speculative dart, at best, against Cleveland's eighth-ranked pass defense (217.8 yards per game).

The rookie wide receiver will carry a designation into the weekend after he was a limited practice participant Wednesday through Friday. A Week 15 absence wouldn't have a huge impact on Arizona's game plan, considering Isabella has maxed out at four targets (Week 11) and 26 offensive snaps (Week 10). In any case, he should be able to play.
Isabella (shoulder) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
The 2019 second-round pick continues to have a cap on his practice reps this week. Due to his lack of consistency on the season, he'll be difficult to roll with in the fantasy playoffs, assuming he's able to suit up Sunday versus the Browns.
Isabella was limited at Wednesday's practice due to a shoulder issue.
For the season, Isabella has delivered only eight catches for 185 yards and a touchdown on 12 targets, with the majority of the production coming on two plays: an 88-yard score in Week 9 and a 55-yard catch in Week 10. With his health compromised, Isabella is even more difficult to trust for output, especially with a matchup with the Browns' eighth-ranked pass defense (217.8 yards per game) on tap Sunday.
Isabella played 13 of 60 offensive snaps during Sunday's 23-17 loss to the Steelers, parlaying them into one catch (on one target) for five yards.
Isabella's share of the plays on offense has ranged from 22 to 37 percent over the last five games. However, after reeling in the first six targets of his career for 174 yards and one TD, his next six targets have gone for just 2-11-0. On a positive note, if he can shake free over the last three games of the season, the rookie's blazing speed could help him add to his pair of 40-plus yard grabs to date.
Isabella was targeted once but didn't catch it during Sunday's 34-7 loss to the Rams.
After hauling in the first six targets of his career, Isabella has been quelled at every turn, recording one six-yard catch on his ensuing five targets. He still boasts a ridiculous 25.7 YPC and 16.4 YPT, fueled primarily by an 88-yard TD in Week 9 and a 55-yard connection with Kyler Murray one game later. Isabella's potential to blow up in any given contest is evident, but those deep shots haven't been hitting for the Cardinals over the past two games.
Isabella gathered in one of four targets for six yards during Sunday's 36-26 loss in San Francisco.
Prior to Sunday's performance, Isabella boasted a perfect catch rate on his six career targets, so it was only a matter of time before there was a blemish on his stat line. Still, he was unable to break free for a gain of 40-plus yards, as he had done in the Cardinals' previous two contests. With a bye week on tap, Isabella's next chance to flash his speed arrives Sunday, Dec. 1 against the Rams.
Isabella gathered in all three of his targets for 78 yards during Sunday's 30-27 loss in Tampa Bay.
On the first play from scrimmage of the second half, Kyler Murray connected with his fellow rookie for a 55-yard gain, marking the second game in a row that the duo hooked up on a play of at least 50 yards. On the season, Isabella has a perfect catch rate on his six targets en route to 29 yards per catch and one TD. Acting as the second outside receiver behind KeeSean Johnson, Isabella increased his share of the offensive snaps from 12 percent in Week 9 to 37 percent this past Sunday. Look for the trend to continue after Damiere Byrd was a healthy scratch in both contests.
Isabella brought in his only target for an 88-yard touchdown in the Cardinals' 28-25 loss to the 49ers on Thursday.
The rookie had been a non-factor all season until a pivotal moment in the fourth quarter, when Kyler Murray found him on an out pattern on the right sideline and Isabella used a combination of nifty moves and blazing speed to race across and up the field for an 88-yard touchdown. Isabella has been mired in the lower rungs of the receiver depth chart for the entirety of the season, but the upside he flashed on his scoring play Thursday is what had made him a consideration in keeper and dynasty formats coming into the season. Now having broken the ice with his first professional touchdown, Isabella will look to follow up with another impactful performance against the Buccaneers in Week 10 a week from Sunday.
