2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
Future Hall of Fame wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, who will be 35 years old heading into the 2018 season, is coming off of three straight 100-catch seasons. Fitzgerald has a great connection with fellow veteran quarterback Carson Palmer who started all but one game in 2015 and 2016 alongside Fitzgerald. However, Fitzgerald continued to produce in 2017 even with a dumpster fire of quarterbacks after Palmer went down with an injury. In the final nine games of the 2017 season, with the likes of Drew Stanton and Blaine Gabbert behind center, Fitzgerald saw five games with 8 or more receptions and he never had fewer than three catches in a game. This essentially proved, once again, that Fitzgerald remains essentially quarterback-proof even in his advanced age.

This season should be a better quarterback situation for Fitzgerald at least from a talent perspective. The team is expected to begin with veteran Sam Bradford behind center, who profiles as practically the perfect match for a player like Fitzgerald. Bradford ranked 34th out of 34 qualifying quarterbacks in percentage of down-field pass attempts in 2015 for the Eagles and was again near the bottom of the league for the Vikings in 2016. This bodes well for Fitzgerald, who has transitioned into one of the leagues' most reliable and dominant slot receivers in his elder years.

There is some concern for Fitzgerald that the new Cardinals offense might not feature him quite as heavily as we've seen in recent seasons under Bruce Arians, but offensive coordinator Mike McCoy is a veteran, who typically molds his offense around getting the ball in the hands of his best playmakers. For the Cardinals, that's Fitzgerald and running back David Johnson. Age is obviously a bit of a worry but Fitz has proven to be one of the most durable wide receivers in the history of the game, having missed just eight games in his 14-year NFL career. He might not present the upside that he once did, but Fitzgerald is an extraordinarily reliable WR2 in fantasy and could make for one of the best value picks given his relatively low ADP.

News From The Past 90 Days
Larry Fitzgerald likely to be more involved
"I don’t think he’s dead yet."
By: Doug Orth | Thu Oct 25, 7:10 pm

Arizona Cardinals
New OC Byron Leftwich, on Larry Fitzgerald's role, said the Cardinals have to do a better job getting him the ball. "The plays are still there in him. I don’t think he’s dead yet." (azcardinals.com - Darren Urban)

FFToday's Take: As frustrated as David Johnson's fantasy owners were with Mike McCoy's usage of him, perhaps the former play-caller's biggest sin was his inability to find a way to keep his future Hall of Fame receiver heavily involved in the offense. If Leftwich ends up featuring Fitzgerald like Arians did, the 35-year-old is poised for a huge second half in an offense severely lacking in playmakers and playing for a team that will likely be facing negative game scripts more often than not.
