Player Notes
May 17 1:00pm ET

Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson has stated that his goal for the season is still 1,000 rushing yards and 1,000 receiving yards. This would make him a locked-in, high-end RB1 for the season and see him return to the form that he exhibited in 2016. Johnson spent all of last season injured but is back to full health and should be the main weapon in a run-based Cardinals attack. Therefore, Johnson should be considered a first-round pick in every draft format this year.

May 17 11:03am ET

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) said his wrist feels great, and he's aiming for 1,000 rushing yards and 1,000 receiving yards.

Apr 11 6:43pm ET

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson said he believes the Cardinals can have the top offense in the NFL in 2018 if QB Sam Bradford can stay healthy.

Apr 4 11:30am ET

Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson is fully healed from his wrist injury that he sustained in Week 1 of the 2017 season. Johnson should be back for OTA's, making his return for the 2018 season a certainty. As a result of Johnson's three-down versatility, he should be considered a locked-in RB1 on a team that will rely on the ground game. Consider Johnson a first round pick in the majority of fantasy formats this season.

Apr 3 2:43am ET

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) has officially been medically cleared and will not be limited when the club begins their offseason program.

Mar 27 4:20pm ET

Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson is expected to be back for OTA's after suffering a wrist injury in Week 1 of the 2017 season. This is good news for fantasy owners as Johnson projects to be one of the best running backs in the league if he is healthy and should be considered a locked-in RB1 with the upside to finish as the top player at the position. All is looking well with Johnson's wrist and he should be considered fully healthy going into the preseason.

Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson is expected to be back for OTA's after suffering a wrist injury in Week 1 of the 2017 season. This is good news for fantasy owners as Johnson projects to be one of the best running backs in the league if he is healthy and should be considered a locked-in RB1 with the upside to finish as the top player at the position. All is looking well with Johnson's wrist and he should be considered fully healthy going into the preseason.

Mar 27 8:23am ET

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) is expected to be cleared in time for organized team activities next month, according to head coach Steve Wilks.

Mar 10 10:33pm ET

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson sent out a tweet Friday, March 9, asking Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins to join him in Arizona.

Feb 8 3:23am ET

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) has been fully cleared to resume all football-related activities.

Jan 22 12:10pm ET

The Arizona Cardinals will likely hire Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks as their new head coach. Wilks brings a defense-first coaching mindset and will likely implement some of the Panthers playbook into his own coaching plans. This could have a large effect on the future of wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald as well as the fantasy value of star running back David Johnson. Right now, Fitzgerald enters as a backend WR2 while David Johnson should still be considered a RB1 and first round pick in upcoming fantasy drafts.

Jan 18 8:33pm ET

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) has his strength and full range of motion back with his injured wrist, which is now healed. He's focused mostly on making sure he's 'ready to play' in 2018 and that he is as healthy as possible.

Jan 18 7:40pm ET

Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson (wrist) is back to 100 percent health. Johnson is finally healthy after his injury cost him all but one game and 17 touches. It will be an offseason of change for Johnson, who must adjust to a new coach and is headed into the final year of his rookie contract. Although Bruce Arians relies on three-down bellcows to an unusual degree, whomever replaces him will do the same with Johnson. Johnson turned 26 in December.

Jan 18 12:40am ET

Atlanta's assistant coach Keith Armstrong as well as Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks are both going to interview for a second time with the Cardinals organization for the role of head coach. Both are strong candidates to take over the role from Bruce Arians, with results expected to be announced in the next few weeks. Whoever becomes the head coach will likely change the scheme, affecting most offensive options outside of wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald and running back David Johnson.

Jan 17 5:10pm ET

Steelers offensive line coach Mike Munchak has turned down a second interview for the job of head coach of the Arizona Cardinals. This has moved Patriots linebackers coach Brian Flores back into the mix. Until this situation gets resolved, the fantasy values of the various Cardinals players will remain in flux. However, regardless of what new system gets put into play, players such as wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald and running back David Johnson will likely have already pre-defined roles for the team.

Jan 16 2:30pm ET

The Arizona Cardinals are putting in second interview requests for their head coach position today. Among those expected to get a call are Steelers offensive line coach Mike Munchak and Eagles quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo. With so much still in flux, it is still uncertain what the fantasy values of the various Cardinals players will be following this process. Keep an eye on who gets the job and how it will affect players such as running back David Johnson and wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald.

Jan 4 5:50pm ET

Vikings OC Pat Shurmur, who has been linked with the HC role for the Arizona Cardinals, is supposed to have his interview tonight. Shurmur is one of the most qualified of the names selected as potential replacements for Bruce Arians and could bring a new flair to the team's offensive style. This move would likely affect players such as running back David Johnson and the potentially-retiring wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald. However, the overall dynamic as well as the fantasy values of each player has yet to be determined.
