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)

Bears | Kevin White talking to Larry Fitzgerald (Wed Jul 1, 09:10 PM) - Chicago Bears WR Kevin White sought advice from Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald at the NFL Rookie Symposium.

Our View: Fitzgerald's advice has helped boost more than one career via his offseason camp. That White is seeking veteran mentorship is a good sign, but expect him to come along slower than the other first round WRs in fantasy leagues because of head coach John Fox's notorious disinclination to give rookies big roles.
