Cardinals Want Depth Behind Kenyan Drake

Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said that the team would like to have three running backs sharing the load in 2020. "D.J. was banged up last year," Kingsbury said. "We think he has a good skill set. But that's an area that we'd like to have three. You saw we got to (using) a third (running back in 2019). We'd like to have three that we feel like we could roll through and not lose much." Kenyan Drake, who signed his transition tender, will see the majority of touches, but Chase Edmonds and D.J. Foster will also get some work. Drake was one of the best running backs in the league after his trade over from the Dolphins, and he'll be a coveted RB1 in fantasy circles with Arizona's offense looking more explosive with the addition of receiver DeAndre Hopkins. Edmonds will merely be a handcuff for those that take Drake early in drafts.

Brandon Aiyuk Has Core Surgery

Arizona State wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk (core), a possible first-round selection in this month's draft, had core muscle surgery on Tuesday, according to sources. Aiyuk has dealt with the issue the last few months and ran a 4.50-second 40-yard dash at the NFL combine in February. With organized team activities canceled this spring due to the coronavirus, Aiyuk decided to have the surgery now. It could affect his draft stock negatively, especially since teams won't be able to see him in person for a while, but it remains to be seen.

Christian Kirk Excited To Play With DeAndre Hopkins

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Christian Kirk, the former second-round pick out of Texas A&M in 2018, knows that the addition of stud wideout DeAndre Hopkins will mean that opposing defenses will focus less on him. Kirk missed the final three games of 2019 due to injury and finished with 68 catches for 709 yards and three touchdowns. He should see a lot more single coverage, but the fact remains that he'll see fewer consistent targets with both Hopkins and Larry Fitzgerald demanding looks from quarterback Kyler Murray. The 23-year-old could have some big games if teams focus all their attention on Nuk, but Kirk's fantasy stock is down entering the 2020 season.

Cardinals, DeAndre Hopkins Having Contract Discussions

Arizona Cardinals owner Michael Bidwell said that general manager Steve Keim has had talks with wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins about his contract. Hopkins was unhappy with his contract in Houston, which is one of the reasons he was dealt to Arizona for pennies on the dollar. The All-Pro wideout will be a bargain at his current salaries for the next three seasons, but the two sides might negotiate something and reach a middle ground eventually. Money aside, the Cardinals got one of the best receivers in the game, and he should make quarterback Kyler Murray even more desirable in fantasy in 2020 and beyond. Hopkins makes a case to be the first receiver off the board in fantasy drafts.

Brett Hundley Returns To Arizona

The Arizona Cardinals and backup quarterback Brett Hundley agreed to an undisclosed one-year deal on Sunday. Hundley, a former fifth-round pick of the Packers back in 2015, played in parts of three games in 2019 for the Cardinals, going 5-for-11 for 49 yards without a touchdown or interception. He'll return as the backup to Kyler Murray in the desert. He's attempted 337 passes in parts of 18 games in three seasons in the NFL. Hundley is athletic and could be a decent low-end QB2 in two-QB leagues if Murray misses any time with injury in 2020.
