Summary

A 13-year veteran whose resume includes 5 seasons as a top-5 fantasy WR Fitzgerald had a top-10 season as a slot receiver in 2015 and followed up as the No. 17 fantasy receiver in 2016. An aging player entering his final year, Fitzgerald has performed well as a slot receiver. Despite lacking the top-5 upside of his prime, Fitzgerald is a workout warrior who keeps himself in supreme shape and still has some of the best hands in the game. Despite dealing with an MCL injury to begin the year, Fitzgerald earned 107 receptions. The Cardinals scheme moves him around the formation to create mismatches and if the team can get consistent play outside, look for another productive fantasy year for the veteran. (May 25)

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald wants a title (Sun Jul 23, 08:32 PM) - Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald said Sunday, July 23, that the only reason he is still playing is to 'chase a championship.'

Our View: This may be that last 'hurrah' for Fitzgerald and QB Carson Palmer. The Cardinals are still in a Super Bowl window, but it seems to be closing fast. In addition to those two stars perhaps playing in their final season, Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians might also be headed for retirement sooner than some think.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald out of HOF game (Sat Jul 22, 09:40 PM) - Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald will be held out of the Hall-of-Fame game against the Dallas Cowboys Thursday, Aug. 3, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Our View: This is business as usual for the extra preseason game. It's not great for folks who make the trip to the game, but teams aren't going to expose key veterans this early in the calendar.
