Friday PM update: Coach Kliff Kingsbury says that Hopkins is a game-time decision despite missing practice all week. For fantasy, we should be cautious if he does end up playing.

Friday update: Kyler Murray returned to practice on Friday, but DeAndre Hopkins remained out. It doesn’t look great for his chances to play, but we’ll see what the injury report looks like first.

Thursday update: DeAndre Hopkins continues to miss practice due to his hamstring injury, per Darren Urban. After missing last week, he might need to get in a limited practice on Friday for a chance to play, but this is Nuk and if he can go on game day, his practice week won’t matter much.

Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury told reporters on Wednesday that All-Pro wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins is day-to-day with a hamstring injury, per Josh Weinfuss. Hopkins did not play in last week’s game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Fantasy football implications

The Cardinals’ offense surprisingly did not skip a beat last week without Kyler Murray and Hopkins. Colt McCoy, who got the start for Murray, got receivers Christian Kirk, Rondale Moore, and Antoine Wesley all involved in the offense. Kirk led Arizona with six receptions (six targets) for 91 yards, while Wesley added three receptions (three targets) for 62 yards and Moore had five receptions (five targets) for 25 yards.

Despite their success against the Niners last week, the Cardinals would like to have Hopkins back for Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers. The Panthers’ defense has a loaded secondary and only allowing eight touchdowns to opposing wide receivers this season.
