Summary

Larry Fitzgerald has spent each of his 12 seasons with the Cardinals. He's been remarkably durable throughout his career, and with the exception of a couple down years in 2012 and 2014, consistently productive. He will be 33 years old this season, but he caught 109 passes last year and was a top-ten fantasy WR. The risk with Fitzgerald, in addition to his age, is that both Michael Floyd and John Brown appear to be ascending players, and more targets for them means fewer for Fitzgerald. Expect a drop-off in production this season, and draft him as a borderline fantasy WR2-WR3 in twelve-team leagues. (May 19)

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald's status uncertain (Thu Aug 25, 03:15 PM) - Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) is not participating in practice Thursday, Aug. 25, and head coach Bruce Arians said he is not sure if Fitzgerald will be able to play in the preseason game against the Houston Texans Sunday, Aug. 28.

Our View: They might as well rest him. It's not like they don't know what he can do. We know it too, and see him as a solid WR3 this season, right where his current ADP is as WR26, No. 56 player overall.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald not rushing back (Wed Aug 24, 03:37 PM) - Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) said he could be taking part in practice but does not want to suffer a setback this close to the start of the season.

Our View: The veteran knows his body better than anybody else. There's no need to rush him back to the field as Fitzgerald plans for Week 1 of the regular season. Fantasy owners should consider Fitzgerald a WR3 with upside. He's going off the board at WR28 (5.07) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald back at practice (Sun Aug 21, 05:33 PM) - Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) is practicing Sunday, Aug. 21 after sitting out the team's exhibition game against the San Diego Chargers on Friday, Aug. 19 with a slight MCL sprain.

Our View: Fitzgerald was never a worry even in the wake of this news. He generally plays well through injuries, and this one seems like a very minor issue.
