Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald contract should get done

Thu, 29 Jan 2015 14:52:25 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald's new contract should be able to get worked out this offseason, according to team president Michael Bidwill. "Larry and I have met about it, and I know he's interested in getting something resolved," Bidwill said. "I think we'll get this all worked out."

Fantasy Tip: New contract or not, Fitzgerald is on the tail end of his career at this point and is coming off a career-low two touchdowns in 2014. He should be considered no more than a low-end No. 2 heading into the offseason.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald talks going well

Fri, 16 Jan 2015 17:30:33 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald's preliminary contract talks continue to go well, according to team president Michael Bidwell, and Bidwell said he believes Fitzgerald will be a member of the Cardinals next year.

Fantasy Tip: If Fitzgerald does return to the Cardinals, a healthy Carson Palmer under center should help him return to fantasy relevance. That being said, he is no longer an elite wide receiver and will likely be more of a matchup play.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald starts contract talks

Fri, 09 Jan 2015 10:22:08 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald and the team have had positive preliminary contract talks, according to sources. However, money has yet to be discussed. Fitzgerald is due an $8 million bonus if he's on the roster March 17, and his cap figure for next year is scheduled to be $23.6 million. Arizona is hoping to lower that cap number by signing Fitzgerald to a new deal worth less money. The team also hasn't ruled out the thought of trading the star receiver. Releasing Fitzgerald would save the team $9.2 million in cap space in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald is nearing the twilight of his great career. He struggled to make an impact this year because of nagging injuries and issues for the team at quarterback. If he can stay healthy next season, though, the return of Carson Palmer should help. However, Fitzgerald is probably nothing more than a WR3 moving forward.

Patriots | Larry Fitzgerald may be option for Pats

Sun, 04 Jan 2015 09:59:33 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald could receive interest from the New England Patriots if he is released by the Cardinals this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald's future with Arizona is in question because of his $16.25 million salary in 2015 and $23.6 salary cap figure. The Patriots could show interest since they do not have many big name receivers. Fitzgerald's fantasy value for 2015 would go up if he joined the Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald's large salary cap number could have him playing elsewhere next season. His fantasy value for next year will be largely dependent on where he ends up.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald may not return

Wed, 31 Dec 2014 16:20:23 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald does not expect to be back with the team in 2015, according to a source. Fitzgerald is scheduled to count $23.6 million against the salary cap next season and likely will not restructure his contract again. Fitzgerald is also not happy with his role in the offense and that he is no longer a focal point.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald caught 63 passes for 784 yards this season, which are his lowest totals since his rookie season. He also caught a career-low two touchdowns in 2014. Fitzgerald could receive more fantasy value if he moves to another team during the offseason. Fitzgerald probably would be a mid-round option in most drafts no matter which team he joins.
