Cardinals | Not trying to trade Larry Fitzgerald

Mon, 28 Oct 2013 10:45:45 -0700

Arizona Cardinals general manager Steve Keim said the team isn't trying to trade WR Larry Fitzgerald this year despite reports Sunday, Oct. 27, that the team could trade him after this season.

Fitzgerald will count $18 million against the salary cap next year while earning $13 million, and he's under contract until 2017. His cap hit will increase again in 2015 to $21.25 million but then drops to $18.25 million in 2016 and $15 million in 2017.

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) was listed as a limited participant in practice Monday, Oct. 14.

He has also been dealing with left hamstring issues for the better part of the season so far, and a snaps restriction Thursday wouldn't be shocking to see.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald may not play

Sun, 13 Oct 2013 09:44:27 -0700

There does not appear to be much optimism about WR Larry Fitzgerald's (hamstring) availability for Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will have to wait for the late game inactive lists to be announced before finding out if Fitzgerald will play. If he does not play, Andre Roberts could get a mild bump in terms of his value in point-per-receptions leagues, but is only a flex option in those leagues.

Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald has a setback?

Fri, 11 Oct 2013 16:34:25 -0700

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) is dealing with a setback to a different spot in his hamstring. He's listed as questionable for Week 6 against the San Francisco 49ers and has a good chance to play.

Fantasy Tip: Fitz may not be moving around as well as you'd like to see if you own him, making him a weak play against a Niners defense that is on the rise. Arizona's weak offensive line and an immobile Carson Palmer might combine to make it a tough day for Fitz.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer, others struggling to pick up offense

Fri, 04 Oct 2013 09:12:58 -0700

Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer said head coach Bruce Arians' offensive system is the most complex and difficult offense he's had to learn in his career. He's only completed 57 percent of his passes for 1,010 yards and four touchdowns and six interceptions. The Cardinals rank 18th in the NFL in passing, 26th in rushing and 27th in overall offense. "It's the whole offense," WR Andre Roberts said. "He's (Palmer) not played well at times, receivers have not played as well at times, the offensive line, running backs. It's a team effort. Especially on offense, you've got to have all 11 guys on the same page." WR Larry Fitzgerald said there are "a lot of nuances" in the system, but if done right, "it's pretty invincible." Palmer has been sacked 10 times and will have a new left tackle, OT Bradley Sowell, protecting his blind side in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: There may still be hope for Palmer and the rest of Arizona's offensive production, but time is running out. The offensive line must do a better job at protecting Palmer and opening lanes for the running game. the Panthers' front seven will pose a tough test again this weekend.
