Week four down the hatch, next up, week five.

—- The opportunity of the week pick-up —-

Ryan Williams – RB Cardinals:

With a huge opportunity this week against the St. Louis Rams, Ryan Williams could be in for a great week.  Rams are giving up over 100 yards per game and with Beanie Wells out, Williams will be getting a bulk of the carries.  If your running backs are struggling this is the week to try a new one out.  This At St. Louis this week.

—- The ‘I doubt he’s still around’ pick-up —-

Ahmad Bradshaw – RB Giants

Back in the starting line-up and was on the field for 55 snaps, opposed to Andre Brown’s nine.  Playing Cleveland this week hopefully puts them ahead and the ball will remain on the ground which will help Bradshaw’s fantasy value.  If he is still on the waiver wire grab him.  Cleveland at home.

—- The world stopped for a second pick-up —-

Brian Hartline – WR Dolphins:

Yes, you read that correctly, I have a Dolphin in the mix. These guys are starting to figure it out and Hartline is part of that.  With 253 yards and a touchdown last week, Hartline is doing it.  Tannehill has been targeting this guy to be his man and maybe it’s time we do the same.  At Bengals next week.

—- The oh lord, it started spinning again pick-up —-

Davone Bess – WR Dolphins:

Yes, another Dolphin in the mix.  With seven catches last week and five the week before, Bess is starting to prove his worth – Or is that Tannehill that is proving his worth?  The touchdowns are coming as Tannehill becomes more confident but the big question will be is it this weekend or not.  Having both these receivers improving the same time will add pressure to defenses on who they need to favor more.  At Bengals next week.

—- The ‘oops, you dropped that Ryan’ pick-up —-

Jackie Battle – RB Chargers:

Ryan Mathews has fumbled his way out of being the man. Jackie Battle took the bull by it’s horns and tackled it.  As a Mathews owner I am bummed, but it looks like Battle is going to be the man in San Diego. He had 15 carries for 39 yards and a td followed by four catches for 42 yards and another td.  At New Orleans next week.

—- The ‘let’s try this again’ pick-up —-

Danny Amendola – WR Rams:

A return to the waiver wire, if he is still there, Amendola added another 55 yards on six catches and a td.  Arizona is third in defense so this my be a tough week so let’s hope he catches a td pass from Bradford and not the kicker this time.  Arizona at home this week.

—- The ‘don’t forget about me’ pick-up —-

Rashard Mendenhall – RB Steelers:

He is back and ready for action this week.  The Steelers need him bad as they are ranked 31 in rushing this year as a team.  Will he turn it around against the Eagles this week – We shall see. Just hope he hasn’t been sitting on someones bench all season.

Last Weeks Results:

Torrey Smith – Six catches for 97 yards and a TD.

Mikel LeShoure – 14 rushes for 26 yards and four receptions for 37 yards.

Julian Edelman – Iced his hand all afternoon.

Kevin Walter – one reception for eight yards.

Kevin Kolb – 324 yards, three td’s and two picks.

Cards Visit Rams for NFC West Bout By When the NFL schedule came out over the summer Thursday night's scheduled bout between the Arizona Cardinals and St. Louis Rams at the Jones Dome (8:20 pm ET, NFL Network) didn't garner much attention.

Skelton back at practice; status 'questionable'

TEMPE, Ariz. By his own admission, Cardinals quarterback John Skelton isnt all the way there as he recovers from what the team said is a low-ankle sprain suffered in Week 1 against the Seattle Seahawks. Not with all this tape on it, Skelton said in the locker room, Wednesday, as he peeled away layers of said tape. Its getting there. Im able to run now and do some stuff that I...

Cards' Eason in pink to honor mom

This is a story about the NFL. But it's not really a story about football. This is about a defensive lineman for the undefeated Arizona Cardinals and what that 6-foot-3, 305-pound lineman will be wearing on the field during Thursday night's game in St. Louis against the Rams. It's not really a story about Nick Eason. "Make it all about Iris Wilcox," Eason...

Know your enemy: Rams-Cardinals Pregame Q&A with Seth Cox of The Sports Headquarters

The Arizona Cardinals - check that, THE FOUR-AND-OH ARIZONA CARDINALS - have been the biggest surprise in the NFL season so far, and a major factor that sees the NFC West leading the league in wins at the quarter pole. But now they prepare  to take on an improved Rams team that is undefeated in their home stadium so far.  If respectability starts at home - and the four...

Cards' Eason 'all in' for pink to honor mom

But its not really a story about Nick Eason. Make it all about Iris Wilcox, Eason instructed me, not Nick...

Thursday Night Football Sexy Fan-Off: Cardinals vs. Rams

The Arizona Cardinals and St. Louis Rams will kick-off Week 5 in the NFL tonight in St. Louis. I’d love to suggest to the fans that this could be a trap game of some sort, but I honestly don’t believe St. Louis has any shot at winning this game. Seeing most of us aren’t very interested in the game aside from a few fantasy players, we’re going to have to shift our focus to...

The bye weeks begin: finding a week 5 fill in QB.

I’m responding to an email inquiry, in advance of the Thursday game again this week. With bye weeks starting this week (yes, we had a ‘mini bye’ last week) owners are faced with some difficult add/drop decisions for the first time this season. In an attempt to solve some of the problems, we’ll take a [...]

Arizona Cardinals at St. Louis Rams NFL Week 5 NFC West Preview

Follow @Dan Vasta Thursday kicks off the weekend fun-filled of pigskin and although there are not many heavyweight battles, this NFC West contest could surprise us quite a bit.

Peterson has carried this team defensively in the secondary but everybody was torched last week by Brian...

The Texans, Falcons and Ravens hold their own atop this week's power rankings, but, there is plenty of movement in the middle ranks... including the Arizona Cardinals making their climb upwards.

Miami Dolphins v Arizona Cardinals

Dolphins fans should be excited. In what was, without a doubt one of the weirdest games of the weekend, we got to see a rookie breakout, a veteran implode, but more importantly redeem himself. So how did the Miami Dolphins v Arizona Cardinals turn three times and end up in a Cardinals victory over the upstart, but still 1-3 Dolphins?  Let’s take a look. 1. Ryan Tannehill is for...
