PFT - [Full Article]

Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald has been coy, saying he needed time to decide whether to play in 2018.

He has apparently had enough time.

Cardinals coach Steve Wilks said on AZ Sports 98.7 FM that Fitzgerald told him last night he intends to play in 2018.

Fantasy Impact:

Fitzgerald is coming off of three straight top 11 finishes in PPR and three straight top 17 finishes in standard scoring formats. He should remain a solid fantasy WR2 in 2018 despite a change at quarterback and offensive coordinator.

New Cardinals head man Steve Wilks, a defensive-minded coach, has pegged Mike McCoy to run his offense in Arizona.

Giants tab James Bettcher to run the defense

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Giants agreed to hire former Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator James Bettcher late Tuesday night, a source told ESPN. Bettcher met with the Giants in Mobile, Alabama, on Tuesday afternoon, while he was in town for the Senior Bowl.

Bettcher also interviewed with and received an offer from the Tennessee Titans to be their defensive coordinator, the source said.

The 39-year-old Bettcher wasn't retained by new Cardinals coach Steve Wilks, who was hired Monday.

Fantasy Impact:

Bettcher was the DC for the Cardinals for the last three seasons and his defenses finished 5th, 2nd and 6th in yards allowed in that span. This looks like a good hire for the G-Men.

One day after his head coach stepped away from football, Carson Palmer followed suit.

The Arizona Cardinals quarterback announced his retirement on Tuesday after 15 seasons in the National Football League.

Fantasy Impact:

Palmer said "I just know" in reference as to why he was hanging it up at this point. The Cards are now left without a head coach and a QB. Blaine Gabbert showed some signs during a brief stint but was later benched for Drew Stanton and didn't play. The team does return David Johnson at RB.

Report says Bruce Arians, Cards will part ways

Pro Football Weekly - [Full Article]

Bruce Arians, a two-time NFL Coach of the Year who is just less than two seasons removed from taking the Arizona Cardinals to the NFC title game, will agree to part ways with the Cardinals next week, multiple sources tell Pro Football Weekly.

Fantasy Impact:

Arians is 48-30-1 in five seasons guiding the club and was 10-6, 11-5 and 13-3 in his first three seasons, from 2013-2015. But he faded to 7-8-1 in an injury plagued 2016 season and struggled to get to 7-8 this season with five of those seven victories coming against Indianapolis, San Francisco (2), Tampa Bay, and the New York Giants, according to the story. The story also said their sources say it will be amicable split.
