Arizona Cardinals News

Matthew McCrane, Cut by Arizona

McCrane was released from the Cardinals' practice squad Tuesday.

Analysis: McCrane was added to the practice squad last week but will now return to free agency. The 27-year-old hasn't seen NFL action since 2018 when he appeared in five games with the Steelers, Raiders and Cardinals.

Trent Sherfield, Finishes third in WR snaps

Sherfield had one reception (three targets) for nine yards in Sunday's 17-11 win over the Eagles.

Analysis: Sherfield had a strong debut with San Francisco last week, and he was rewarded with a bump up to third on the depth chart (34 percent of offensive snaps). The 25-year-old showed some promise during the preseason, so he is a name that could surface in the future if a larger role on offense opens up. Currently, Sherfield won't see the kind of volume necessary for most fantasy managers to rely on.

Younghoe Koo, Stays perfect on young season

Koo connected on a 36-yard field-goal attempt and made both of his PAT attempts in Sunday's 48-25 loss to Tampa Bay.

Analysis: Atlanta went for two after its final touchdown to make it a three-point game late in the third quarter before the Buccaneers pulled away with three unanswered touchdowns in the fourth. Koo's off to a 3-for-3 start on field goals through two weeks and should continue to make the most of the opportunities provided by playing for a Falcons team that figures to be involved in plenty of high-scoring games.

Christian Kirk, Hauls in three passes Sunday

Kirk notched three receptions (on four targets) for 65 yards during Sunday's 34-33 win versus the Vikings.

Analysis: Among the six Cardinals to be targeted by Kyler Murray in Week 2, Kirk matched No. 1 wideout DeAndre Hopkins with the fewest looks. Having said that, all three of Kirk's catches went for at least 10 yards, highlighted by a 35-yard looping pass down the middle of the field that set up Arizona at the six-yard line in the fourth, which set up a 27-yard field goal for the winning points. After two games, Kirk has accrued a 8-135-2 receiving line on nine targets, which indicates his efficiency in what has been a hyper-efficient passing attack under Murray. Kirk will look to keep it up next Sunday when the Cards pay a visit to Jacksonville.

Chase Edmonds, Churns out 75 total yards

Edmonds turned eight carries into 46 yards and five receptions (on five targets) for 29 yards during Sunday's 34-33 victory versus the Vikings.

Analysis: In Week 1 at Tennessee, Edmonds (12 carries, four catches) and James Conner (16 rushes) earned the same number of touches, but the former doubled up the latter, 106-53, in total yards. One week later, Edmonds out-touched Conner, 13-8, and had 49 more yards from scrimmage (75 versus 26). If the preceding has revealed anything, Edmonds has a better chance than Conner to be utilized on a weekly basis and has been far more efficient with those looks. In any case, it's clear Edmonds is in a split backfield, which likely will inhibit his output certain weeks.
