Arizona Cardinals Fantasy Spin

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports David Johnson (ankle) is expected to play in Week 7 against the Giants. This was foreseeable once the Cardinals failed to add another back to their roster Saturday afternoon. It's likely the second straight week Johnson's gotten in work on Friday and ultimately been declared active on game day. Fantasy players should expect reps similar (barring re-aggravation) to his performance from last week as Johnson out-snapped Chase Edmonds 52-20 en route to an RB4 finish. DJ's a Top 10 option at his position while this news shuffles Edmonds back to being a RB4/FLEX play in Week 7.

New York Giants Fantasy Spin

ESPN's Jordan Raanan reports Sterling Shepard (concussion) won't be cleared for Week 7 against the Cardinals. Shepard has practiced on a limited basis this week but hasn't been cleared for contact and remains in the league's protocol. Per Raanan, it's uncertain if he'll be ready for Week 8 against Detroit as the Giants plan to exercise the utmost caution coming off Shepard's second concussion in a four-week span. Golden Tate, Darius Slayton and Cody Latimer operated as New York's top receivers in Week 6 and we'd expect the Giants to employ a similar configuration Sunday against Arizona.

NFL Betting Trends

Arizona

The Cardinals are 5-1 against the spread in their last six road games versus the Giants, while the road team is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings between these two teams.

New York

The Giants are just 2-8-1 against the number in their last 11 home games and have failed to cover in five of their last seven games overall.

Prediction

The expected return of Saquon Barkley certainly makes the Giants tempting but I love getting the hook with the Cardinals because I could see this game coming down to a field goal. The Cardinals offense has a great matchup against a Giants team that is 28th in pass defense DVOA and Murray has improved every week under Kliff Kingsbury. Arizona’s defense has struggled, but the return of Patrick Peterson (six-game suspension for PEDs) is huge. I like the Cardinals to win outright but again, I’ll take the 3.5 and put it in my back pocket.

NFL Week 7 Prediction: Arizona Cardinals +3.5
