Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald putting off retirement

Wed, 01 Feb 2017 19:13:27 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald announced Wednesday, Feb. 1, that he is "definitely" returning for a 14th season and play out the final year of his contract in 2017, according to ESPN's Jim Trotter.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald's return at least gives Arizona a fighting chance to remain competitive in 2017 while the team continues to develop its young talent at receiver. Fitzgerald's second-half fades over the last two years will continue to be a concern entering his age-34 season, but it's hard to complain too much about a receiver who has proven 100-catch upside and will likely be available in the middle rounds in fantasy drafts again this summer.

Cardinals | Bruce Arians expects stars back in '17

Tue, 31 Jan 2017 18:52:39 -0800

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians expects both QB Carson Palmer and WR Larry Fitzgerald to return in 2017. He feels "comfortable with where they're at" and added, "I think when the juices start flowing and the injuries go away, they'll both be back. But there's nothing to confirm yet."

Fantasy Tip: At this point early into Arizona's offseason, it's still unknown if both stars plan on continuing their respective careers. Fitzgerald is 33 years old and coming off his eighth 1,000-yard season, so there is certainly no doubt that he can still play at an elite level, which could point to him returning. Palmer, 37, isn't as much a sure bet to come back, especially after somewhat of a down campaign, but Arians hinted that one's decision could affect the other, so the early indication is both will keep playing in '17.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald could call it a career

Sun, 29 Jan 2017 12:50:02 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald reportedly told friends in September he expected 2016 to be his last season. He has yet to make a definitive decision one way or the other, but when asked about his future last offseason, the 10-time Pro Bowler told KMVP-FM "a lot of it's tied to Carson (Palmer)."

Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald is 33 and led the NFL with 107 receptions this season, so while he wouldn't be leaving the game in his prime, he would be doing so despite transforming himself into one of the league's top slot receivers in recent years. With Palmer also pondering retirement, expect Arizona to target receiver early in April's NFL Draft. If Fitzgerald retires, John Brown, J.J. Nelson and Jaron Brown, who is recovering from a torn ACL, would be the Cardinals' top receivers as things stand at the moment.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald led NFL in receptions

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 17:49:03 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald finished the 2016 season with 107 receptions, which was the most in the NFL.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald has finished each of the last two seasons with at least 100 catches and has accomplished the feat four times in his career. He may consider retirement this offseason, so owners will need to monitor his situation. Fitzgerald can be considered a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues if he decides to play in 2017.

Cardinals | Bruce Arians won't push Larry Fitzgerald

Sat, 14 Jan 2017 20:05:43 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald hasn't committed to playing in 2017, and head coach Bruce Arians said he won't try to convince Fitzgerald to return because the decision to play should be his call.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald led the NFL with 107 catches this season, so there is no question he can still produce. If he returns, he is a WR2 candidate with added value in PPR formats.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald won't alter preparation

Tue, 03 Jan 2017 20:45:20 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald indicated he won't make any changes to his offseason approach heading into the 2017 season. Now 33, Fitzgerald has yet to fully commit to playing next year.

Fantasy Tip: There's obviously plenty of time for all this to get sorted out over the next several months, but coming off a 107-1,023-6 campaign it certainly appears Fitzgerald has something left in the tank.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald should play

Fri, 30 Dec 2016 15:11:06 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 30, and is not on the injury report for Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald has been receiving plenty of targets over the past month but has been held to 31 yards or less in two of the last three games. He has also gone 10 games without a touchdown, which has hurt his fantasy value. Fitzgerald can still be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option because of his role in the passing game.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald goes over 100 grabs

Sat, 24 Dec 2016 17:55:49 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald posted four receptions for 31 yards on his four targets in the Week 16 game against the Seattle Seahawks. He has back-to-back seasons with 100 or more catches for the first time in his career, and he has reached the mark four times in his career.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald needs 20 yards in Week 17 to go over 1,000 yards for the eighth time in his career. He will face the Los Angeles Rams on the road in the regular season finale.
