Wed, 26 Nov 2014 17:24:07 -0800
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 26.
Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to continue to monitor Fitzgerald's practice participation to see if he makes any progress during the week. Fitzgerald costs $5,900 on FantasyScore and may be a risky option if he is active.
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.
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.
Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore owners should avoid Fitzgerald until he can officially make it back and prove his health in one full game without any setbacks.
Sun, 23 Nov 2014 11:39:11 -0800
The Arizona Cardinals have declared LB Desmond Bishop, LB Glenn Carson, WR Larry Fitzgerald, TE Matthew Mulligan, DT Ed Stinson, DT Alameda Ta'amu, RB Kerwynn Williams inactive for Week 12.
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.
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.
Fantasy Tip: John Brown ($4,700; 9.4% of your cap) should receive more looks this week and is a solid WR3 on FantasyScore.
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. Owners on FantasyScore may want to use other options since Fitzgerald could be limited if he does play. John Brown could receive a bigger role in the offense if Fitzgerald misses the game. Brown costs $4,700 and could be a good flex option.
Fri, 21 Nov 2014 12:02:56 -0800
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) is considered a game-time decision for Week 12, according to head coach Bruce Arians.
Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald may not be a good fantasy option since he could be limited even if he is active for the game. Owners on FantasyScore should avoid using Fitzgerald and use their money on other options.
Fri, 21 Nov 2014 11:14:23 -0800
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.
Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald may be a game-time decision for Week 12, because he has not been able to practice this week. Fitzgerald costs $5,900 on FantasyScore this week, but owners may want to consider using their money on healthier options.
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.
Thu, 20 Nov 2014 11:08:43 -0800
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) was not participating during the media-access portion of practice Thursday, Nov. 20.
Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald's status for Week 12 is uncertain, so owners should check to see if he is able to practice Friday, Nov. 21. Owners may want to avoid using Fitzgerald on FantasyScore, because he could be limited if he is active for the game.
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).
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.
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.
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, 17 Nov 2014 03:57:30 -0800
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) will have an MRI Monday, Nov. 17 to determine the seriousness of an injury to his left knee. The injury is thought to be to his medial collateral ligament.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Fantasy Tip: Fitz is a low-end WR1 for Week 1 at $6,700 (13.4% of your cap) on FantasyScore.
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.
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.
Fri, 11 Jul 2014 11:55:28 -0700

The team has not approached Fitzgerald's agent about a restructure, but Fitzgerald isn't interested in a pay cut. He might be open to restructuring if that converts salary into a bonus that can be prorated over the next few years.
Sun, 22 Dec 2013 06:29:17 -0800
