Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald contract update

Fri, 27 Feb 2015 13:50:31 -0800

Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald is scheduled to count $10.85 million against the salary cap in 2015 and $15.85 million in 2016. His contract will void after two seasons, and the Cardinals will have $4.85 million of dead money on their salary cap in 2017 and 2018.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald was limited to 784 yards and two touchdowns this past season but should have a better season with Carson Palmer returning. Owners probably should consider Fitzgerald as a No. 3 wide receiver in drafts next season with the chance be become a No. 2 receiver.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald can't be traded

Sat, 21 Feb 2015 11:06:15 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald had a no-trade clause included in his new four-year deal, which prevents the Cardinals from using Fitzgerald in any trade talks.

Fantasy Tip: It's no guarantee that Fitzgerald will find renewed success in light of his new deal, though he could be more motivated with a healthy Carson Palmer returning, on top of the fresh contract. Fitzgerald is coming off a two-touchdown 2014 season, the lowest of any season in his career. He should probably be considered a high-end WR3 with WR2 potential.

Cardinals | Cards could save $9 million with Fitz

Fri, 13 Feb 2015 10:01:20 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald would save the team $9.2 million in salary cap space if they were to outright release him, but the Cardinals have no plans to go down that road. A trade is actually more of a possibility than an outright release, and the Cardinals would gain $16 million in cap space if they traded Fitzgerald away.

Fantasy Tip: All signs point to Fitzgerald returning to the Cardinals in 2015. Fitz saw his production drop significantly last year. He had just two touchdowns on 63 catches for 784 yards. In his defense, after Carson Palmer went down with an injury, Arizona's QB situation didn't help his cause at all. However, even with a healthy Palmer in 2015, expect Fitzgerald to continue aging. He'll likely be no more than a WR4 or flex option in standard leagues.

Cardinals | Cardinals, Larry Fitzgerald begin talks

Thu, 12 Feb 2015 17:53:25 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald and the team have begun working on an agreement that would keep Fitzgerald with the Cardinals long term while providing the team with relief from his $23 million scheduled cap hit.

Fantasy Tip: Both sides have been optimistic about a deal being worked out up to this point. Fitzgerald's days as a top receiver are likely over, but if he returns to the Cardinals, he should produce WR3 numbers with Carson Palmer back under center.
