  • Cardinals' J.J. Nelson: Catchless in loss

    Nelson failed to catch his only target during Sunday's 26-14 loss to Kansas City.

    Arizona's offense might have a new coordinator, but -- through two games -- the points haven't been pouring in. The fourth-year speedster is feeling the pain. Never much of a volume target, Nelson at least used to be able to be counted on as a big-play threat with a career 18.6-yards-per-catch average during his first three seasons. He's yet to record even a 10-yard catch this season. It's unlikely, but if he were to turn it around, Sunday's matchup with Oakland would be the ideal opportunity as the Raiders have given up a league-high 13.9 yards per reception.

  • Cardinals' David Amerson: Signs with Cardinals

    Amerson will sign a contract with the Cardinals, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Amerson signed a one-year deal with the Chiefs this offseason but failed to make the 53-man roster before the beginning of the regular season. The 26-year-old has logged previous stints with the Redskins and Raiders, recording 18 tackles and four passes defensed across six games in Oakland last season. For now, he'll be viewed as a depth option in Arizona's secondary.

  • Cardinals' Justin Pugh: Placed on IR

    The Cardinals placed Pugh (knee) on injured reserve Tuesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

    Pugh will miss the rest of the season after injuring his knee Sunday against the Chiefs. The 28-year-old appeared in seven games with the Cardinals. Oday Aboushi will likely see an increased workload.

  • Cardinals' Jermaine Gresham: Target-free for third time

    Gresham played 29 (on 73) offensive snaps during Sunday's 26-14 defeat in Kansas City.

    The breakdown of reps between Gresham and Ricky Seals-Jones depends on the week. On this occasion, the latter led the way with 46 snaps on offense, which he used to produce five catches (on nine targets) for 51 yards. Meanwhile, Gresham went without a target for the third time in seven games this season. He also is averaging just one target per contest in 2018, making him a fantasy nonentity in his ninth NFL campaign.

  • Cardinals' T.J. Logan: First offensive touches Sunday

    Logan caught both of his targets for 14 yards and returned three kickoffs for 89 yards during Sunday's 26-14 defeat at Kansas City.

    Heading into Week 10, Logan had been active just two times this season, playing almost exclusively on special teams. The 2017 fifth-rounder took full advantage of his three (of 73) offensive snaps Sunday, accounting for more yards from scrimmage on his first career touches on offense than primary backup running back Chase Edmonds, who took two carries for seven yards on 17 such snaps. Unfortunately for the duo, neither player is a viable option due to the presence of David Johnson.

  • Cardinals' Trent Sherfield: Makes unexpected appearance Week 10

    Sherfield played 39 (of 73) offensive snaps during Sunday's 26-14 loss in Kansas City.

    The Cardinals were without No. 3 wide receiver Chad Williams (ankle), and instead of turning to J.J. Nelson (20 snaps) or newcomer Kendall Wright (inactive), the coaching staff trusted in Sherfield. Entering Week 10, Sherfield had just three snaps on offense and 43 on special teams in five appearances. Unfortunately, he was unable to parlay the elevated workload into any production. If Williams returns Week 11 against the Raiders, Sherfield likely would revert to the fringes of Arizona's receiving corps.

  • Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Gets just two carries Week 10

    Edmonds notched two carries for seven yards during Sunday's 26-14 loss at Kansas City.

    Yet again, Edmonds did little more than spell David Johnson, who accounted for 183 yards from scrimmage and both of the Cardinals' touchdowns on the afternoon. To make matters worse, Edmonds wasn't the most productive reserve running back. That honor went to T.J. Logan, who hauled in both of his targets for 14 yards on three offensive snaps. Sure, Edmonds handled 17 such snaps, but his outlook appears barren due to the amount of volume taken on by Johnson.

  • Cardinals' Phil Dawson: Kicks two extra points in loss

    Dawson converted both extra-point attempts during Sunday's 26-14 loss to the Chiefs.

    Dawson logged another accurate performance, and he has not missed a kick since Week 4. Despite his reliability, the 41-year-old is not receiving the volume necessary to put up fantasy points. Dawson will see a favorable matchup against the Raiders on Sunday and will attempt to bounce back.

  • Cardinals' Budda Baker: Receiving MRI

    Coach Steve Wilks said that Baker (undisclosed) is receiving an MRI on Monday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

    The reason for Baker's MRI remains unknown, but it's worth noting that the second-year safety was limited throughout practice last week due to a foot injury. Until the nature and severity of Baker's concern are revealed, his status for Week 11 against the Raiders will be difficult to peg.

  • Cardinals' Christian Kirk: Shut down by Kansas City secondary

    Kirk caught just two of six targets, amounting eight yards during Sunday's 26-14 loss to the Chiefs.

    In Sunday's loss to Kansas City, the rookie wideout posted his worst receiving output since Sept. 9 when he debuted against Washington (four yards on one reception). Though he's been targeted a combined 26 times over Arizona's past four games, Kirk has hauled in just 53.9 percent of those attempts -- a drastic drop-off from 76 percent over the first five weeks of the season. A promising matchup approaches in Week 11, as Kirk and the Cardinals receiving corps will be opposing Oakland's bottom-10 pass defense (over 260 yards surrendered per game).

  • Cardinals' Ricky Seals-Jones: Second-leading receiver in Week 10

    Seals-Jones hauled in five of nine targets, racking up 51 receiving yards during Sunday's 26-14 defeat to the Chiefs.

    Seals-Jones had a solid outing Sunday, facing a Chiefs defense that came into Week 10 struggling mightily at containing opposing tight ends (only Tampa Bay had surrendered more yardage to the position this season). Five catches tied a season high for the former Texas A&M standout, while he pushed the 50-yard receiving mark for the third time this season. Next, he'll have a matchup against an Oakland secondary that entered the weekend allowing the third-most touchdowns to tight ends (six).

  • Cardinals' Josh Rosen: Picked off twice in loss to Chiefs

    Rosen completed 22 of 39 attempts for 208 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions during Sunday's 26-14 loss to Kansas City.

    The rookie has been plagued by turnovers of late, with seven interceptions and three fumbles (two lost) over the past four weeks. Playing behind a Cardinals offensive line that entered Week 10 allowing 57 quarterback hits on the year (10th-most), Rosen has been unable to get comfortable in the pocket all season. The fact that he's completed fewer than 58 percent of his passes in six of seven appearances is a testament to that. He could be a viable streaming option in Week 11 against Oakland, however, facing a Raiders defense that came into the weekend with a 20.4 percent pressure rate (lowest in the NFL since 2013).

  • Cardinals' Larry Fitzgerald: Posts 50-plus receiving yards in two straight

    Fitzgerald hauled in six of 10 targets for 50 yards during Sunday's 26-14 loss to the Chiefs.

    After being held out of the end zone through the first six weeks of the season, Fitzgerald has two scores over his past three outings while averaging 64 yards per game. (He averaged fewer than 36 per game through Week 6.) New offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich has had an immediate impact on Fitzgerald's involvement in the passing attack, as he has garnered 22 targets over Arizona's past two outings, compared to 6.1 targets per game when Mike McCoy was calling the shots. Week 11 brings a matchup against an Oakland secondary that's allowing over 260 yards per game (bottom 10 in the NFL), but one that has been effective in containing opposing wideouts, as the Raiders have allowed the fifth-fewest wide receiver catches this year with 100.

  • Cardinals' Josh Bynes: Records sack in loss

    Bynes logged three tackles (two solo), one sack and one pass defended during Sunday's 26-14 loss to the Chiefs.

    Bynes posted his second sack of the season during a Week 10 loss to the Chiefs and played a key role in holding Kansas City's offense to its lowest point total of the season. The starting linebacker could be in line for another strong defensive showing against the Raiders in Week 11.

  • Cardinals' Chandler Jones: Posts two sacks in loss

    Jones recorded three tackles (all solo) and two sacks during Sunday's 26-14 loss to the Chiefs.

    Jones consistently pressured quarterback Patrick Mahomes and played a key role in holding Kansas City's offense to its lowest score of the regular season. The veteran defensive end will look to build upon his 6.5 sack total against the Raiders in Week 11.

  • Cardinals' David Johnson: Exceeds 100 yards in second straight game

    Johnson racked up 98 rushing yards and one touchdown on 21 carries, adding seven catches for 85 yards and a receiving score during Sunday's 26-14 loss to the Chiefs.

    With 283 total yards in his most recent outings against San Francisco and Kansas City, Johnson has posted his greatest two-game offensive output since Week 12 and Week 13 of the 2016 season. The last time Johnson had both a rushing and receiving touchdown in the same outing came in Week 12 of that 2016 All-Pro season as well. That is, until he caught a nine-yard touchdown pass from Josh Rosen on a wheel route in the first quarter, and later plunged his way into the end zone for a one-yard rushing score during Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. Upcoming next for Johnson and the Cardinals is a date with Oakland, and one of the NFL's five worst rush defenses.
