Summary

Earlier in his career, Larry Fitzgerald was regularly one of the first five WRs off the board in fantasy drafts; but his last 1,000-yard season was in 2011, and his role has become limited in recent years. No longer a downfield threat, Fitzgerald is now strictly a possession receiver who typically runs short, inside routes. Fitzgerald is a useful run-blocker, but there are no fantasy points for that. Fitzgerald struggled with poor quarterback play in 2014, but he also looked slower into and out of his cuts -- perhaps because of nagging knee issues, or perhaps because he was slow to make post-snap reads in the Cardinals' complex system, which includes read-based route conversions and adjustments. Fitzgerald will turn 32 before the start of the season. It is safe to say that his best years are behind him. (May 9)
