Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 6 vs MIN (8 / 5 / 39 / 0 rec)

Fitzgerald has been in a funk since Week 1, failing to surpass even 40 yards in any of the previous five games. Fitzgerald was already playing a hearty amount of his snaps in the slot and now is struggling to separate much at all even on interior routes. Fitzgerald led the team with eight targets, but his quality plays were minimal. Fitzgerald was stuffed on a screen catch and, more glaring, was misplaying a deep fourth down pass into tight coverage. Josh Rosen arced a well-thrown ball to Fitzgerald, a drop in the bucket display of accuracy, however Fitzgerald did not locate the pass in time and Arizona turned the ball over on downs. On the plus side, Fitzgerald did draw a defensive pass interference penalty in the end zone, which led to a touchdown, and make a diving reception versus contact.

2018 Week 5 vs SF (3 / 2 / 35 / 0 rec)

Fitzgerald was an afterthought for the Cardinals against the 49ers, seeing a mere three targets and none until the final seconds of the first half. Both of Fitzgerald's catches came in a short span late in the second quarter as San Francisco funneled the ball inside with the clock ticking down. Fitzgerald benefitted with two catches, but during traditional play Fitzgerald was invisible. After three straight seasons of 100+ receptions, Fitzgerald is on pace for barely 50 this season and has yet to find the end zone.

2018 Week 4 vs SEA (7 / 3 / 28 / 0 rec)

Fitzgerald was one of the Arizona skill position options not to take advantage of Josh Rosen's uptick as the new starter at quarterback. Fitzgerald logged two uncharacteristic drops amidst his seven targets and in general struggled to separate, primarily over the middle of the field. Fitzgerald's lone highlight came on a third down contested snare of a Josh Rosen fastball. After three down games in a row, Fitzgerald gets the suspect 49ers coverage unit in Week 5.

2018 Week 3 vs CHI (2 / 2 / 9 / 0 rec)

Fitzgerald struggled against Chicago, corralling two short targets in the game as Christian Kirk enjoyed a breakout performance. Sam Bradford did little to help Fitzgerald with his own lackluster game, but Fitzgerald struggled to separate on short and intermediate routes over the middle of the field as his physical erosion continues in his mid-30s.

2018 Week 2 vs LAR (5 / 3 / 28 / 0 rec)

Fitzgerald sustained a hamstring injury against the Rams, limiting his second half work in the blowout loss. It was tough sledding for Fitzgerald before the injury as he got loose in the secondary a single time, finding an open zone for a third-and-long conversion. Everything else was a battle, including a diving reception and multiple targets batted away by the defense. A bigger concern than Fitzgerald waning ability to separate is Arizona's futility as an offense through two weeks.

2018 Week 1 vs WAS (10 / 7 / 76 / 0 rec)

Fitzgerald led Arizona is targets with 10 against Washington. Overall, Fitzgerald struggled to separate on his short and intermediate routes. Fitzgerald collected most of his yardage on two downfield catches, a corner route with an excellent throw by Sam Bradford for more than 25 yards and a deep out route as Arizona finally gained some offensive momentum late in the third quarter. Fitzgerald had a touchdown opportunity with a goal line shovel pass, but was stuffed on the play by Washington front seven.
