Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (hamstring) returned to limited practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday practice. Palmer worked on the side with a trainer. He should be ok, though Friday’s practice should clear things up.

Cardinals WR John Brown (hamstring) missed practice again Thursday. Brown finished the game last week so he should be out there for Week 7, though we’ll feel better if he returns to practice on Friday.

Jets RB Matt Forte's usage continues to fall

Tuesday, October 18, 2016, 12:46pm - [Full Article]

After a fast start to the season, Jets running back Matt Forte has been a non-factor during the team's four-game losing streak, which continued Monday night with a 28-3 defeat at the Cardinals. The Jets are now 1-5.

In the Jets' first two games, Forte had 96 and 100 rushing yards, plus 59 and 9 receiving yards. He had three rushing touchdowns in that span, all in Week 2 at Buffalo. Forte doesn't have any touchdowns since then.

Here is what he has done the past four weeks: 15 carries for 65 yards, 14 carries for 27 yards, 12 carries for 53 yards, and nine carries for 19 yards on Monday. Forte's receiving yardage totals during this stretch: minus-1, 16, 7, and 3.

Fantasy Impact:

Of course, the Jets' run blocking (or lack thereof) hasn't exactly helped Forte's rushing totals, the story said. Forte barely played Monday. He received 21 of 54 snaps (39 percent), compared to 39 snaps for Bilal Powell, who ran three times Monday for 10 yards, the story added.

Cards WR Jaron Brown's knee injury doesn't appear serious

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Jaron Brown walked through the locker room Monday night after leaving the game with a left knee injury late in the fourth quarter.

"I’m walking. I’m straight," Brown told reporters as he slowly walked by them with a slightly noticeable limp.

Brown had tests immediately after the game, coach Bruce Arians said.

"We’ll have to wait and see," Arians added. "It appears it’s not as serious as it looked."

Fantasy Impact:

Brown caught four of five targets -- the second-most receptions for him in a game -- for 35 yards in Arizona’s 28-3 win against the Jets on Monday. His role has increased in recent weeks as Michael Floyd's production has decreased.

Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (concussion) officially cleared for Week 6

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Cardinals QB Carson Palmer has officially been cleared from the league's concussion protocol and will start on Monday Night against the New York Jets.

Related players: Larry Fitzgerald, John Brown, Michael Floyd

Fantasy Impact:

You were starting Larry Fitzgerald no matter who was under center for Arizona, but with Palmer back at the helm, John Brown, and to a lesser extent, Michael Floyd, have flex appeal. Palmer is a must-start against a Jets defense that ranks 30th in quarterback aFPA.

Chip Kelly: 'We're looking at every option at QB'

Cam Inman - [Full Article]

After San Francisco's 33-21 Week 5 loss to the Cardinals, 49ers HC Chip Kelly told reporters of the Mercury News that he's "not naming any starters for Buffalo, so just don’t rule anything out" and reiterated his sentiments on Monday morning saying that "We're looking at every option" at QB.

This looks to be the beginning of a quarterback controversy between Colin Kaepernick and Blaine Gabbert that could continue throughout the season.

Related players: Blaine Gabbert

Fantasy Impact:

If Colin Kaepernick does, in fact, become the 49ers starter, he may offer value as a low-end QB2 in two-QB leagues or a streamer in the right matchup. Chip Kelly has a history of making his quarterbacks fantasy-relevant and we know that he'll let Kaepernick use his legs, as Blaine Gabbert leads all QBs in rushing yards this season.

Cardinals QB Carson Palmer still in concussion protocal

Monday, October 10, 2016, 1:27pm - [Full Article]

While Cardinals QB Carson palmer remains in the league concussion protocol, GM Steve Keim commented that Palmer is "doing great by all indications."

Related Players: Drew Stanton, Larry Fitzgerald, John Brown, Michael Floyd

Fantasy Impact:

This will be a situation to monitor closely all week, as Palmer's health obviously has a huge impact on the entire Arizona passing game. The Cardinals don't play until Monday night against the Jets, so deciding on John Brown and Michael Floyd as borderline flex plays could be tricky, although Drew Stanton did play well on Monday night and New York bleeds fantasy points to wide receivers.
