Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald has owned Philly

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 09:53:20 -0700

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald has at least one touchdown (10 total) and averages 6.7 catches for 107 yards in six career games against the Philadelphia Eagles, his Week 8 opponent. However, Fitzgerald is tempering his expectations this time around, as he knows he isn't the target magnet he once was. He's only on pace for 61 catches for 755 yards this season. Head coach Bruce Arians isn't concerned with anyone on the team building their stats, and the offense thrives on spreading the ball around. Only RB Andre Ellington (25 catches) has more than Fitzgerald on the team.

Fantasy Tip: Regardless of the fact that Fitzgerald ($5,900; 11.8% of cap) isn't the bonafide No. 1 receiver on this team, he's still a good play at FantasyScore this weekend against the Eagles.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald had bigger role

Mon, 13 Oct 2014 09:45:29 -0700

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald was a big part of the game plan in Week 6 against the Washington Redskins with QB Carson Palmer back in the starting role. Fitzgerald had six catches for 98 yards and his first touchdown of the season, and he tied a season high for catches and a season high for yards. He had only 13 catches for 164 yards in the team's first four games.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald has been a pretty big disappointment to his owners so far this year. But with Palmer back in the fold, that should keep him afloat for a while longer, at least. Fitz won't have games like this every week, but he should be a serviceable flex option at FantasyScore with the right matchups.

Cardinals | Michael Floyd gets on board

Sun, 12 Oct 2014 13:47:38 -0700

Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd hauled in his first touchdown reception of the season in the Week 6 game against the Washington Redskins. It was the first touchdown grab between Floyd and WR Larry Fitzgerald, who continues to search for that first elusive score.

Fantasy Tip: With Carson Palmer back healthy, and a soft schedule coming up, Floyd and Fitzgerald could both be ready to blow up for fantasy owners in the next few weeks.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald could benefit

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 08:22:40 -0700

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald could see more targets in Week 2 with QB Drew Stanton starting, in the opinion of beat writer Mike Jurecki.

Fantasy Tip: Fitz is still priced fairly high at $6,500 (13% of your cap) on FantasyScore this week coming off of a low-target performance. He has a chance to produce up to that level, but you're taking a risk with him at that value.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald was slowed by knee

Thu, 11 Sep 2014 13:32:46 -0700

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) dealt with a knee injury that limited him in the team's Week 1 win over the San Diego Chargers, head coach Bruce Arians admitted. Fitzgerald wasn't on the field for several key third downs because he hadn't been able to practice those plays. "I learned my lesson last year not to ask (Larry) to do things in a game that you're not practicing," Arians said. "It's not fair to the quarterback either."

Fantasy Tip: For a price of $6,500 (13.0% of cap) at FantasyScore, Fitz doesn't look like a good option for daily gaming in Week 2, even against the New York Giants. Look elsewhere.

Cardinals | Cards won't force ball to Larry Fitzgerald

Tue, 09 Sep 2014 16:37:29 -0700

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald won't have the ball forced to him, according to head coach Bruce Arians. QB Carson Palmer agreed with the idea after he learned his lesson last season trying to force the ball to Fitzgerald. "You have to ask the quarterback," Arians said. "(Larry) is going out for a pass every time. I don't look at that. We don't design plays for guys to get the ball. That's interceptions waiting to happen." Fitzgerald was targeted four times and caught one pass for 22 yards in the Week 1 win over the San Diego Chargers.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald was blanketed all night by the Chargers, and as his career winds down, he's struggling to get separation from corners. Week 2 against the New York Giants presents a chance to get on track, though. Fitz will cost $6,500 (13.0% of cap) in that one at FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald quiet in opener

Mon, 08 Sep 2014 22:54:51 -0700

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald managed just one reception for 22 yards in Week 1 against the San Diego Chargers Monday, Sept 8, and that catch did not come until the fourth quarter.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore owners and those in weekly formats had much higher hopes for the veteran, who had the fifth-most receiving yards on his own team. Needless to say, he didn't come remotely close to living up to expectations in Week 1.

Sat, 06 Sep 2014 15:41:30 -0700

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) participated fully in practice Saturday, Sept. 6, and is probable for Week 1.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald practices in full

Fri, 05 Sep 2014 14:43:16 -0700

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) practiced in full for the second straight day Friday, Sept. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Fitz is near the top of the money listing for receivers at FantasyScore ($6,700, 13.4% percent of salary cap) in Week 1 against the San Diego Chargers. It may be well worth it, though; SD was among the better matchups for opposing quarterbacks and wide receivers in 2013.

Cardinals | Jaron Brown heads No. 4 receiver battle

Wed, 06 Aug 2014 17:07:30 -0700

Arizona Cardinals WR Jaron Brown is listed on the team's second-team offense with WR Ted Ginn Jr. behind starting WRs Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd. The team's first depth chart of the preseason shows WRs John Brown and Walter Powell on the third-team offense, with WRs Dan Buckner, Reggie Dunn, Brittan Golden and Kevin Ozier on the fourth team.

Fantasy Tip: The fantasy value line stops at Ginn, or the third receiver, unless injuries strike the top of the depth chart. John Brown has looked like a speedster in camp, but he needs to have a good training camp and preseason to sniff the field. Right now, he is worth watching, but not worth drafting.
