Isabella recorded one catch (on two targets) for six yards during Thursday's 28-21 loss at Seattle.
Prior to the Cardinals' Week 8 bye, Isabella logged between 30 and 50 percent of the snaps on offense in five of seven games. Since then, though, the range has been 15 to 27 percent over the last three contests. The result has been four receptions (on six targets) for 30 yards and no scores during the most recent stretch. On top of that, Isabella hasn't had a grab of 20-plus yards since Week 5. With little to no output to speak of on a weekly basis of late, he's tough to trust on the fantasy front.
Isabella gathered in his only target for 14 yards during Sunday's 32-30 win over the Bills.
Isabella was a distant fourth in offensive snap share (15 percent) to fellow wide receivers DeAndre Hopkins (96), Larry Fitzgerald (90) and Christian Kirk (74) in this contest. With limited usage, Isabella hasn't made any plays of more than 20 yards in four consecutive contests and six of nine games this season. As a result, he's difficult to trust in the majority of formats.
Isabella caught two of three targets for 10 yards during Sunday's 34-31 loss to Miami. He also fumbled on a kickoff return, but possession remained with Arizona.
Christian Kirk and Larry Fitzgerald finished as Arizona's No. 1 and No. 2 leading receivers during the Week 9 loss, combining for 178 yards and a touchdown. Isabella, meanwhile, was held to 10 or fewer receiving yards for the fourth time in his past five outings. He totaled eight catches for 114 receiving yards and two TDs between Weeks 2 and 3, but since that point, he has managed just 50 combined receiving yards over his past five appearances. The UMass standout remains the Cardinals' No. 4 option at wideout heading into a Week 10 matchup against Buffalo.
Isabella hauled in one of three targets for seven yards during Sunday's 37-34 overtime win versus the Seahawks.
Despite matching his season high with 50 percent of the snaps on offense Sunday, Isabella continued his vexing week-to-week output -- he failed to catch two deep shots Week 6 and was the target on Kyler Murray's sole interception this past Sunday, a far cry from his two-TD effort in Week 3. Aside from three catches longer than 20 yards this season, Isabella has totaled only 44 yards from scrimmage on his nine other touches, making him tough to consider as even a fill-in option.
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 (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game versus the Browns, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
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).
Isabella (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Cleveland, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
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.
