Cardinals' Larry Fitzgerald: Heroics not enough in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fitzgerald caught 13 of 15 targets for 149 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 28-17 loss to the Cowboys.

Fitzgerald put together a vintage performance, tying his career high in receptions while accounting for his highest yardage since Week 8 of the 2014 campaign. Without tailback David Johnson (wrist) available, the 34-year-old Fitzgerald is Arizona's most dependable playmaker, as was on display Monday. While veteran's numbers were inflated by three catches of 20-plus yards, Fitzgerald's 15-yard touchdown during the third quarter was a more familiar sight at this stage in his career. Although it wasn't enough to lead his team to victory, Fitzgerald surely helped plenty fantasy owners with his Week 3 outburst.

Cardinals' Andre Ellington: Totals 81 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellington caught five of eight targets for 59 yards and rushed five times for 22 yards in Monday night's 28-17 loss to the Cowboys.

Ellington surprisingly led the Cardinals in rushing, illustrating just how much they struggled in that department on the night. In doing so in seven fewer carries than Chris Johnson, however, Ellington could make a push for more handoffs in Week 4. Already a superior pass-catcher to Johnson, Ellington trailed only Larry Fitzgerald in the major receiving categories Monday. As a result, if he can get more carries, Ellington's fantasy stock could rise thanks to his versatility in David Johnson's (wrist) absence.

Cardinals' Chris Johnson: Struggles on 13 touches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson rushed 12 times for 17 yards and caught one of his two targets for four yards in Monday night's 28-17 loss to the Cowboys.

Johnson was handed at least seven more carries than any of his teammates, but the veteran struggled to find running lanes. Overall, the Cardinals' long rush of the night went for six yards, so Johnson wasn't alone in that respect, but he'll be frustrated by his performance nonetheless. While his usage upon his return to Arizona has been encouraging so far, Johnson will aim to be more productive versus San Francisco in Week 4.

Cardinals' Carson Palmer: Tosses two touchdowns in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Palmer completed 29 of 48 passes for 325 yards and two touchdowns in Monday night's 28-17 loss to the Cowboys.

Palmer was regularly under siege by Dallas' pass rush, evidenced by the six sacks he took in Arizona's losing effort. Despite limited time to throw, however, Palmer was still able to manufacture a second straight game with over 320 passing yards. With a touchdown on both sides of halftime, Palmer also managed to double his season total without adding any more turnovers to his tally. As Palmer and the Cardinals offense searches for ways to replace David Johnson's (wrist) production, a home matchup against the 49ers awaits in Week 4.

Cardinals' Jermaine Gresham: Playing Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gresham (ribs) is listed as active Monday against the Cowboys, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

While there was some worry he'd sit out again, Gresham will miss just one game as a result of a rib injury sustained in the season opener. Assuming he's healthy, he should receive the majority of the tight-end snaps, which could yield fruit with skill-position players like David Johnson (wrist) and John Brown (quadriceps) sidelined.
