Scouting report

ARI WR Andy Isabella - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

Andy Isabella has shown flashes this season of playmaking ability, which should give him some long-term upside in dynasty formats, but he’s only seeing about 30% of the team’s offensive snaps over the past few weeks and has caught just one of the five balls thrown his way for six yards over the last two games. He should remain on waivers in all redraft formats.

ARI WR Andy Isabella - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 vs. Los Angeles Rams

Andy Isabella’s playing time and targets have increased over the past four games, but outside of two long catches – including an 88-yard touchdown – his production hasn’t really matched his increased role. He caught only one of the four balls thrown his way against the 49ers before the bye last week, gaining just six yards. Isabella remains a long-term dynasty stash option as the possible slot receiver after Larry Fitzgerald retires, but until then, he’s a development prospect and shouldn’t be on a roster in most fantasy leagues.

ARI WR Andy Isabella - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 at San Francisco 49ers

After being a non-factor for much of the season, Andy Isabella has 166 yards and a touchdown over his past two weeks. While his touchdown against the 49ers two weeks ago came on a single reception for 88 yards, his three catches on three targets last week against the Buccaneers is encouraging for his future in the offense. It’s still too early to recommend putting Isabella in your lineup, especially against a tough 49ers defense, but he’s worth monitoring in case he can separate from the pack of receivers vying for the WR3 job in Arizona.

ARI WR Andy Isabella - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Andy Isabella caught an 88-yard touchdown last week, but fantasy owners shouldn’t get too excited about it. It was his only target on the day and he was only on the field for 23% of the team’s offensive snaps. He’s worth stashing in dynasty leagues, but he’s unlikely to climb any higher than third on the depth chart this year – best-case scenario – and is too risky to bank on putting in a lineup. Keep him on waivers, even in a great matchup against the Buccaneers this week.

ARI WR Andy Isabella - 2019 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
According to NFL.com, Head coach Kliff Kingsbury seems excitable in general. But adding a player with the speed of second-round wideout Andy Isabella seems to be particularly energizing for him. The Cardinals' behind-the-scenes draft footage showed a visibly pumped Kingsbury after they drafted the UMass receiver 62nd overall. The 5-9 Isabella led the nation in receiving yards (1,698) last year, and caught everyone's eyes when he ran a 4.31-second 40-yard dash at the Scouting Combine. But will Isabella be ready to make an immediate contribution at the professional level? According to USA Today's Doug Farrar, based on his size we may look at the diminutive speedster as a prototypical slot receiver, but there's more to his game. Specifically, Isabella knows how to use that speed down field. He caught 14 deep passes for 705 yards and nine touchdowns in 2018. Per Farrar, Isabella is "more Victor Cruz than Wes Welker." That said, Isabella offers the versatility (he's a former running back) to create mismatches all over the field.

Fantasy Downside
Rookie receivers don't generally deliver superior fantasy seasons and Isabella joins a crowded field. It's also worth remembering he's playing under a first-year coach and almost certainly with a rookie quarterback in Kyler Murray.

2019 Bottom Line
The good news is that field is crowded for a reason. Kingsbury has mentioned the possibility of using five-wide sets, and if he utilizes a player with Isabella's speed inside with players like Christian Kirk and Larry Fitzgerald outside, it could create the kind of matchups necessary to make him worthy of a late-round flier in your league.
