Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald a full participant

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 17:30:26 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Even if he is 100% healthy, Fitzgerald is too risky to trust at FantasyScore given the team's current quarterback situation. He has had 34 receiving yards or less in three straight games.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald fastest to 900 catches

Fri, 12 Dec 2014 09:10:11 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald had seven catches for just 30 yards in the team's Week 15 win over the St. Louis Rams Thursday, Dec. 11, but he became the youngest player to 900 catches. In 22 career games against the Rams, he has 128 catches and 16 touchdowns, which is the most against any other opponent.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald's fantasy football value has shriveled down because of the situation at quarterback in Arizona. With Drew Stanton (knee) possibly facing a serious injury, it may even get worse in the final couple of weeks, too. It's probably smart to avoid Fitz at FantasyScore from here on out.

Cardinals | Cards better with Fitzgerald playing

Thu, 11 Dec 2014 16:56:03 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald has been key to the team's and QB Drew Stanton's success this year. The Cardinals lost both of the games that Fitzgerald sat out with a knee injury, and Stanton has thrown just one touchdown and four interceptions and is averaging a paltry 6.6 yards per pass attempt without Fitz, according to ESPN Stats & Information. Stanton has thrown six touchdowns and just one interception with Fitzgerald playing, and his yards per attempt rises to 7.7. Fitzgerald caught four of his nine targets for 34 yards in Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: While it's a good thing that Fitzgerald ($5,800) is back playing, he and Stanton ($4,600) are facing a nasty St. Louis Rams defense Thursday night. They aren't the most intriguing options for FantasyScore lineups this week.

Sun, 07 Dec 2014 04:16:25 -0800

The Arizona Cardinals believe WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) will be back in action for the Sunday, Dec. 7 contest against the Kansas City Chiefs, although he will test the knee before the game to make sure.

Fantasy Tip: As stated previously, Fitzgerald's $5,900 FantasyScore salary may best be left stashed on the bench. Although the team believes he is likely to play, Fitzgerald may be worked slowly back into the lineup and the Cardinals are playing a tough Kansas City squad.

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 5, but is listed as questionable for Week 14.

Thu, 04 Dec 2014 14:02:04 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) expects to start in Week 14. He said he's done everything the last two days to get back to the field.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald limited at practice

Wed, 03 Dec 2014 15:53:45 -0800

Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) was limited at practice Wednesday, Dec. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald ($5,900) continues to be a FantasyScore risk with his knee injury, and the Kansas City Chiefs, the Cardinals' Week 14 opponent, have been adequate at holding down opposing receivers. Not helping matters is the fact that Drew Stanton has struggled mightily in recent weeks.

Fri, 28 Nov 2014 06:53:37 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) said he's likely to play in Week 13 against the Buffalo Bills despite not practicing at all this week. Fitzgerald said his knee has been feeling better, but that the call on whether he plays Sunday, Nov. 30, ultimately won't come down to him.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald has been optimistic about his return, but he'll likely be a game-time decision Sunday afternoon, making him risky at FantasyScore. John Brown ($4,800; 9.6% of your cap) could see more targets and is a decent WR3 on FantasyScore this week.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald progressing

Wed, 26 Nov 2014 10:47:17 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) felt some progress in his sprained left medial collateral ligament Tuesday, Nov. 25, according to head coach Bruce Arians. Fitzgerald was pretty upset that he was unable to play in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald ($5,900) will do everything in his power to play against the Atlanta Falcons this weekend. The Falcons are a great matchup for wide receivers, too, but even if Fitz plays, his mobility is likely to be limiting, making him an unattractive FantasyScore option.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald's status uncertain

Mon, 24 Nov 2014 16:47:25 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) is unsure when he will return from his knee injury, according to head coach Bruce Arians. "We still don't know anything about Larry," Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said. "If we were practicing today, he would not practice. We'll see how he improves by Wednesday and go from there." General manager Steve Keim said Fitzgerald remains day-to-day a week after suffering a Grade 2 medial collateral ligament sprain. He was a game-time decision in Week 12 but "couldn't run," which led him to be inactive.

Fantasy Tip: The Cards' passing game struggled big time without Fitz, and Michael Floyd didn't even have a reception. If Fitzgerald returns to face the Atlanta Falcons this Sunday, he should gain your attention at FantasyScore. Atlanta has allowed 25.65 fantasy points to wideouts per game this season.

Sun, 23 Nov 2014 19:20:35 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald's (knee) sprained knee did not respond as hoped before the Week 12 game against the Seattle Seahawks, so he was inactive. He could well miss more games.

Sun, 23 Nov 2014 11:33:28 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) has been declared inactive for Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald has been one of the most durable receivers over the past several seasons but is not able to play this week. John Brown probably will receive more playing time and could be a flex option on FantasyScore at $4,700.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald will not play

Sun, 23 Nov 2014 10:46:20 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) will not play in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: John Brown likely will receive more targets with Fitzgerald out of the lineup. Brown costs $4,700 on FantasyScore and could be a fine flex option. Michael Floyd may also receive more targets, but the Seattle Seahawks defense has done well against taller receivers. Floyd costs $5,800 on FantasyScore.

Sun, 23 Nov 2014 07:26:36 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) "needs a miracle" to play Sunday, Nov. 23, according to a source.

Fri, 21 Nov 2014 13:16:26 -0800

Updating previous reports, Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald will be a game-time decision, so owners will need to wait to set up their lineups.

Brown costs $4,700 and could be a good flex option.

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) was not participating during the media-access portion of practice Friday, Nov. 21. Fitzgerald was working on the side during that part of practice.

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 13:07:22 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) is optimistic he'll be able to play Sunday, Nov. 23. He went through rehabilitation Wednesday, Nov. 19 and Thursday, Nov. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Fitz does play, he'll be going up against the Legion of Boom, Seattle's secondary, in one of the most hostile environments in the NFL. Just four touchdowns have been scored by wide receivers facing the Seahawks this year.

Cardinals | No practice for Larry Fitzgerald

Wed, 19 Nov 2014 17:11:15 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 19, and head coach Bruce Arians said the wideout is "iffy" for the Week 12 game against the Seattle Seahawks. He is battling back from a sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee suffered in Week 11 against the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: We'll get a much clearer picture on Fitzgerald's status Friday when the official injury report comes out. At this point, it is likely he will be questionable, or 50-50 to play. FantasyScore owners probably want to avoid him this week. If he is deemed inactive, John Brown would be a nice bargain at $4,700 (or 9.4 percent of the cap), and Michael Floyd would have added value at $5,800 (or 11.6 percent of the cap).

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald to miss practice

Wed, 19 Nov 2014 11:24:52 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) will not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 19, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to watch his practice participation during the week to have a better idea on his status for Week 12. Fitzgerald costs $5,900 on FantasyScore but is a risky option to use because the injury could limit his ability to play.

Cardinals | Arians expects Larry Fitzgerald to play

Mon, 17 Nov 2014 13:05:02 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) should be able to play in Week 12 against the Seattle Seahawks, according to head coach Bruce Arians. "We'll see how sore he is Wednesday and how much it limits him, and we'll go from there," Arians said. Fitzgerald had his knee taped and played with a brace in the second half in Week 11 after suffering a sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee.

Fantasy Tip: This seems like extremely wishful thinking from Arians and Fitz that he'll play this weekend. Check back on his practice status throughout the week, though. At FantasyScore, you should look to avoid Fitzgerald at all costs.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald has Grade 2 sprain

Mon, 17 Nov 2014 09:48:42 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) has been diagnosed with a Grade 2 sprain of the medial collateral ligament in his knee, but he's expecting to play in Week 12 against the Seattle Seahawks. However, it's not a lock that Fitzgerald will play.

Fantasy Tip: Sure, Fitz has a history of playing through ailments, but at his age, a Grade 2 sprain should keep him out at least several weeks. The optimism from him is nice, but if you own him, it's probably unlikely that he plays in Week 12. Bump Michael Floyd and John Brown up your Week 12 rankings.

Mon, 03 Nov 2014 09:42:42 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald extended the longest active streak in the league with at least one catch at 157 games. He had five catches for 70 yards in the team's Week 9 win over the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald didn't have an amazing game for his fantasy owners in Week 9, but you can't complain. He should be a consistent contributor down the stretch, even if he's not seeing the target load that he once did.

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.

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.

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.
