Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald's new contract should be able to get worked out this offseason, according to team president Michael Bidwill. "Larry and I have met about it, and I know he's interested in getting something resolved," Bidwill said. "I think we'll get this all worked out."
Fantasy Tip: New contract or not, Fitzgerald is on the tail end of his career at this point and is coming off a career-low two touchdowns in 2014. He should be considered no more than a low-end No. 2 heading into the offseason.

This year we are going to plan to make sure we address all the issues not knowing whether Daryl will be back for part of next season or all of next season."

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (knee) said he feels great and that he is ahead of schedule in his rehab from a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Palmer started jogging last week and is lifting heavy weights with his legs. Palmer is confident that he will be with the team next season.
Fantasy Tip: Palmer should be ready for the start of the 2015 season and was playing well before he suffered the injury. Palmer may not be a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues next season but he could be a strong backup for owners.

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald's preliminary contract talks continue to go well, according to team president Michael Bidwell, and Bidwell said he believes Fitzgerald will be a member of the Cardinals next year.
Fantasy Tip: If Fitzgerald does return to the Cardinals, a healthy Carson Palmer under center should help him return to fantasy relevance. That being said, he is no longer an elite wide receiver and will likely be more of a matchup play.
