Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 6 vs ATL (8 / 6 / 69 / 0 rec)

Without Christian Kirk in the lineup, Fitzgerald collected a sturdy eight targets against Atlanta with three key receptions of note. Fitzgerald corralled a deep middle laser from Kyler Murray, a highlight play as Murray circled away from pressure to extend the play. Fitzgerald also converted a third-down comeback target and a deep crosser across his production. Fitzgerald has not scored since Week 3, spanning 17 receptions with the suspect-at-best Giants secondary up in Week 7.

2019 Week 5 vs CIN (8 / 6 / 58 / 0 rec)

Without Christian Kirk in the lineup against Cincinnati, Fitzgerald did not separate from the pack for work in Arizona's passing game. On Fitzgerald's 25% target market share he did not produce any big plays and had three screen receptions either stuffed by the defense or called back by penalty, including one at the goal line. Fitzgerald did convert a deeper crossing route and a third-down opportunity among his tepid highlights.

2019 Week 4 vs SEA (5 / 5 / 47 / 0 rec)

In a record-setting week for Fitzgerald, moving into the second position for all-time receptions in the NFL behind Jerry Rice, the veteran did not move the needle for impact on his five catches, two of which coming in garbage time. Another reception came on a give-up third-and-long well in front of the sticks. Fitzgerald did not see any downfield targets as the Arizona offense was stifled outside of a few flashes in the sound home defeat.

2019 Week 3 vs CAR (7 / 5 / 36 / 1 rec)

Fitzgerald caught at least five passes for the third straight game to open the season, including a goal line screen touchdown. Fitzgerald was tempered in his intermediate and downfield opportunities like much of the Arizona offense against an inspired Carolina defense. Fitzgerald's lone big play came on a laser throw from Kyler Murray down the seam for more than 20 yards. Fitzgerald also added a third-down conversion on a shorter reception.

2019 Week 2 vs BAL (11 / 5 / 104 / 0 rec)

Fitzgerald led Arizona in targets against Baltimore, his second straight game of at least 11 targets. Fitzgerald's performance centered around two long receptions, both of at least 40 yards. He was wide open, quizzically lost by the Baltimore secondary, for more than 50 yards and also made a highlight reel sliding catch down the sideline, one of Kyler Murray's better throws in the game. Fitzgerald added a one-handed grab going out of bounds. The overall volume of Arizona's passing game as well as Fitzgerald's involvement had been promising through two games.

2019 Week 1 vs DET (13 / 8 / 113 / 1 rec)

Fitzgerald, like the entire Arizona offense, got off to a slow start against Detroit, not logging a catch until the second quarter. Fitzgerald found his timing with rookie quarterback Kyler Murray as the game progressed, however, especially downfield. Fitzgerald made one of the wow plays of the game in overtime as the pair connected on a deep corner route, an encore to a diving seam catch Fitzgerald corralled earlier in the game. Fitzgerald came wide open on a goal line rollout for a straight-forward score to add to his strong performance. Fitzgerald led the team in targets despite Arizona deploying a strong number of four-receiver sets.
