Cardinals | Carson Palmer to improve in 2016?

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 21:53:06 -0700

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald expects "better things" from QB Carson Palmer this season because of Palmer's understanding of head coach Bruce Arians' offensive system.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer carries some injury risk, but he has the weapons around him to deliver another solid season of QB1 production.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald feels great

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 09:46:20 -0700

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald seems unlikely to retire anytime soon. "Just trying to prepare for the next phase in your life, but I have a lot of good football left in me. How long I will play, I don't know. I feel great. I can still play at a high level. I just have to take it one year at a time and I got a really fantastic team I'm a part of," Fitzgerald said.

Fantasy Tip: The 32-year-old wideout has had a Hall of Fame career and rebounded in a big way working out of the slot a lot in 2016 with 109 catches for 1,215 yards and nine touchdowns. It was his first 100-catch season since 2007 and only the third of his career. It'll surely be tough for him to repeat numbers like that this year, but in Arizona's high-powered offense, he can still do damage as long as Carson Palmer is healthy. Consider Fitz a decent low-end WR2 or high-end WR3.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald singing swan song?

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 10:17:15 -0700

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald said he has not really thought about the possibility of this being his last season playing in the NFL. Fitzgerald signed a two-year deal last offseason and said he's focused on finishing that deal this season. He hinted that if the Cardinals won the Super Bowl this season, he would lean towards retirement. "A lot of it's tied to Carson (Palmer) - Carson's playing at a high level," Fitzgerald said. "I don't want to go through any other quarterback situations. It's been great to have the stability that we have now with the big fella, he's been playing lights out."

Fantasy Tip: After three down years, Fitz really rejuvenated his career last year with a 109-1,215-9 season. His 11.1 yards per catch was the lowest of his career. His inability to separate in those three down years is what plagued him, and the Cards used him differently to make up for that. He's a solid WR2, but some regression should be expected as defenses adjust.

Cardinals | Quiet night for Larry Fitzgerald

Sun, 24 Jan 2016 20:08:44 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald finished with four catches for 30 yards in a 49-15 loss to the Carolina Panthers in the NFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 24.

Fantasy Tip: His season ended on a down note, but Fitzgerald showed he still has some juice left with his performance in 2015. Arizona has plenty of young receivers waiting to shine, but Fitzgerald should still be a strong WR3 in 2016 and potentially a WR2.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald excelled in slot

Thu, 21 Jan 2016 16:07:07 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald lined up for 505 plays out of the slot receiver position this year and had 53 catches for 626 yards. Carolina Panthers CB Josh Norman isn't expected to cover him in the NFC Championship.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald ($8,300, 16.6% of cap) can do it all, and he steps up even more in the postseason. See his phenomenal late-game performance in the divisional round. He had a big game against the Green Bay Packers and could follow that up with another strong showing against a tough Panthers defense. He's worth the price.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald looks to stay hot

Wed, 20 Jan 2016 19:15:12 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald posted eight receptions for 176 yards and a 75-yard game-winning touchdown in overtime last week against the Green Bay Packers. Now, he will meet the Carolina Panthers in the NFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 24, for a chance at a second-career Super Bowl appearance.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald ($8,300, 16.6% of cap) is a man on a mission, and he could be a great FantasyScore play against a Carolina pass defense which ranked 11th in the regular season while allowing 53 pass plays of 20 or more yards, and 10 pass plays of 40 or more yards while yielding 21 touchdowns through the air.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald has nice matchup

Tue, 19 Jan 2016 13:33:19 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald is expected to be covered by Carolina Panthers CB Cortland Finnegan in the NFC Championship game this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Fitz already has 10 playoff touchdowns in only eight games, and he took over the game by himself in the divisional round against the Green Bay Packers. Even against a tough Panthers defense, Fitzgerald should put up nice numbers against a struggling Finnegan.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald sets postseason record

Tue, 19 Jan 2016 11:32:04 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald became the fastest player ever to reach 10 postseason receiving touchdowns. It took Fitzgerald eight games to accomplish the feat, and only six other players have caught as many touchdowns in the postseason.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald hasn't lost a beat in the playoffs after one of the best regular seasons of his career. If Carson Palmer and Fitzgerald return and stay healthy next season, who's to say Fitz can't have another WR1 season? He should be considered as such, specifically in PPR leagues, next season.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald torches Packers

Sat, 16 Jan 2016 20:52:37 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald had eight catches for 176 yards and a touchdown in a 26-20 win over the Green Bay Packers in the divisional round of the playoffs Saturday, Jan. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald has a history of delivering in the postseason, and he didn't disappoint. He will deserve a long look at FantasyScore in the conference title game.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald excels in playoffs

Thu, 14 Jan 2016 15:43:46 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald leads all NFL receivers in history with at least five postseason games with an average of 105.1 receiving yards per game.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald ($7,900, 15.8% of cap) is definitely a strong daily choice this weekend against a Green Bay Packers secondary that can be beaten, especially if Sam Shields (concussion) sits out.
