Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald coming back

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 07:00:29 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald announced Thursday, Feb. 15, that he'll return for the 2018 season.

Fantasy Tip: He'll be 35 in August, but he has continued to be a dangerous possession receiver the last few years. He has averaged 108 grabs for 1,131 yards and seven scores per season the last three years. There are questions about who will throw to him, but he has remained consistent despite that. Look at him as a high-end WR2 in fantasy.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald's salary guaranteed

Mon, 12 Feb 2018 23:35:38 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald's $11 million salary became guaranteed on Friday, Feb. 9. However, this does not impact his retirement decision. If he chooses to retire, he would not receive that money.

Fantasy Tip: A decision from Fitzgerald is expected before the end of the month. If he indeed returns, he'll remain a WR2 going into next season, though there's a decent possibility he sees his numbers drop based on some significant changes in Arizona. Fitzgerald will have a new starting quarterback throwing to him -- a position still not filled -- while also playing under a new head coach that could bring out all sorts of variables.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald nearing contract deadline

Fri, 09 Feb 2018 11:08:42 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald's $11 million base salary for 2018 will be guaranteed if he is remains on the roster Friday, Feb. 9. Fitzgerald still has not decided if he will play next season or retire.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald said during Super Bowl week that he would decide on his future in a week or two, so owners should monitor the situation over the next few days. He would still be a solid fantasy receiver in all leagues if he continues playing.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald to make decision soon

Sun, 04 Feb 2018 11:50:04 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald said he expects to decide on his playing future in the next week or two.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald posted solid numbers in 2017 but probably would be working with a new quarterback if he decides to return next season. He would still be a solid fantasy option if he continues his playing career and can be at least a No. 3 receiver for owners.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald won't play anywhere else?

Wed, 31 Jan 2018 18:35:45 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald won't play for another team if he decides to return, according to his father Larry Fitzgerald Sr. in an interview on SiriusXM NFL Radio. "If it's not with the Cardinals, we've seen the last of Larry Fitzgerald in the National Football League wearing No. 11," he said. Fitzgerald Sr. added that his son "really wants to get a championship ring, there's no doubt about that."

Fantasy Tip: While other reports have Fitzgerald leaning towards returning for his 15th season, this one might indicate the opposite, as it sounds like winning would be the main reason for him to keep playing. However, the Cardinals are in a different situation now, having a new head coach and starting quarterback going into Week 1 of next year, and with the increasing difficulty of the NFC West, Arizona suddenly could be on a rebuilding trail. We'll hopefully find out soon.

Cardinals | Arizona OC expecting Larry Fitzgerald back

Mon, 29 Jan 2018 21:38:42 -0800

Arizona Cardinals offensive coordinator Mike McCoy is anticipating the return of WR Larry Fitzgerald next season, as during his introductory press conference with the club on Monday, Jan. 29, he "sure sounded like a coach expecting Fitz to play."

Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald will be 35-years-old going into next year but the future Hall-of-Famer apparently still has plenty left in the tank if this past season was any indication. Even despite losing starting quarterback Carson Palmer to injury, Fitzgerald managed to rack up his third consecutive year with 100-plus receptions and more than 1,000 yards. Thus, no matter who is under center for Arizona in 2018, Fitzgerald will be headed into the new campaign as a WR2 if he keeps playing.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald undecided on retirement

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 11:48:12 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald has still not decided as to whether or not he will retire this offseason, according to new head coach Steve Wilks. Fitzgerald just completed his 14th season in the NFL and will turn 35 years old before the 2018 regular season begins.

Fantasy Tip: Even in his mid-30s, Fitzgerald is an ageless wonder. Without Carson Palmer he still managed to achieve WR1 status in 2017. As long as he's healthy, and doesn't hang up the cleats, he's a low-end WR1 to high-end WR2 with added value in PPR leagues.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald waiting on decision

Fri, 12 Jan 2018 13:39:56 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald said he would like to see who the Cardinals hire as their next head coach before he decides if he will play in 2018.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor the situation over the next few weeks to see if Fitzgerald will play again. He is still a solid receiver and could be a No. 3 fantasy receiver next season if he plays.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald caps career year

Sun, 31 Dec 2017 19:35:21 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald tied a career high with 109 receptions this season, topping 100 catches for the third straight season.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald is signed through next season, but he has yet to commit to playing. If he does return, he is still more than capable of providing WR2 numbers in PPR formats.
