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 | Carson Palmer to improve in 2016? (Fri Jul 22, 12:53 AM) - Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald expects 'better things' from QB Carson Palmer this season because of Palmer's understanding of head coach Bruce Arians' offensive system.

Our View: Palmer is almost always available outside of the top 6 quarterbacks. If all three of his top receivers can stay healthy this year, that and the added punch of David Johnson playing a larger role will make Palmer a profitable pick as a mid-late QB1.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald feels great (Thu Jul 21, 12:46 PM) - Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald seems unlikely to retire anytime soon. 'Just trying to prepare for the next phase in your life, but I have a lot of good football left in me. How long I will play, I don't know. I feel great. I can still play at a high level. I just have to take it one year at a time and I got a really fantastic team I'm a part of,' Fitzgerald said.

Our View: One day we're going to find that Fitzgerald has a super-soldier serum like Captain America or a mirror that prevents age like Dorian Gray. It's the only explanation for his ageless production. We expect WR2/WR3 numbers from Fitzgerald this year as long as Carson Palmer stays healthy, because we shudder at the thought of this offense without Palmer. Feel confident in selecting Fitzgerald, and make sure you find out if he really has found the Fountain of Youth as we'd love to go swimming.
