2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
Another year older, another year wiser for Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald who has now gone over 100 receptions and 1,000 yards in back-to-back seasons while making 15 total touchdown receptions over the past two years. He'll be 34 years-old this year, but Fitzgerald has given us very little reason to believe that he won't again be Carson Palmer's favorite target in an offense that has shown that it can move the ball.

The 6'3", 220 lb wide receiver doesn't exactly fit the mold of what would be considered a slot receiver for most teams, but that's the role he's been doing the most damage out of in recent seasons. His selflessness has allowed him to take his tremendous route-running skills and extend his career by becoming exactly what the team needed him to be. In fact, Fitzgerald was tied for second-most receptions out of the slot in the NFL this past season with 63 catches. He did that while battling a knee injury for much of the season.

Fitzgerald only had one game with over 81 yards receiving on the season and he caught just one touchdown after Week 5. Still, he was a PPR workhorse, catching at least three passes in every contest and at least five passes in all but three games. Now healthy again, Fitzgerald projects to again be a great WR3 with very realistic WR2 potential. His high target volume makes him a high floor option again this year, but his upside isn't likely as a WR1 anymore, at least not on a week-to-week basis.

News From The Past 90 Days
Larry Fitzgerald preparing to play in 2018?
WR reportedly nearing one-year extension
By: Doug Orth | Thu Nov 16, 7:40 pm

Arizona Cardinals
Per source Cardinals and WR Larry Fitzgerald are close to an extension. One year. Contract through 2018. (Pro Football Talk)

FFToday's Take: Fitzgerald could obviously still retire if he wants to at the end of the season, but the 34-year-old is on pace for his third straight 100-catch season and still thriving despite the loss of Carson Palmer. He's a solid WR1 in PPR leagues and should be considered no worse than a low-end WR1 next year should he return.


Injury Carson Palmer lands on IR
Broken left arm
By: Doug Orth | Thu Oct 26, 6:00 pm

Arizona Cardinals
Any hope of a quicker-than-expected Carson Palmer return has been dashed. The Cardinals’ quarterback was placed on injured reserve Thursday with his broken arm, a move that will keep him out of action for a minimum of eight weeks. The earliest Palmer can return to the field is the Christmas Eve matchup against the Giants, which is the second-to-last game of the regular season. (AZCardinals.com)

FFToday's Take: It locks Drew Stanton (or maybe Blaine Gabbert at some point down the road if Stanton does not perform well) into the starting spot until Week 16 at the earliest and pretty much crushes the value of every Arizona pass-catcher. Larry Fitzgerald is probably viewed as a WR3 at best now, while John Brown is drop-worthy in redraft formats. Stanton will be hard to use as a QB2 in even the most favorable matchups, including Week 9 at San Francisco.


Injury Carson Palmer suffers broken left arm
Hopeful he can return in 4-6 weeks
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 23, 8:30 pm

Washington Redskins
HC Bruce Arians: Carson Palmer believes he might be able to come back in 4-6 weeks. Have to see what doctors say. If on IR, "definitely" save return spot. (AZCardinals.com)

FFToday's Take: Initial reports had him eight weeks, so if the second opinion he is seeking Monday verifies the new timeline, it would mean Palmer could return somewhere between Weeks 11 and 13. In the meantime, every Arizona skill-position player's fantasy stock takes a hit with Drew Stanton under center, including Larry Fitzgerald, John Brown and Adrian Peterson. If there is a positive, it might be that Palmer's absence should lock Peterson into voluminous workloads for the next month or so.


Injury John Brown ruled out for Week 2
Rookie Chad Williams expected to play
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 15, 4:00 pm

Arizona Cardinals
Receiver John Brown has been ruled out with a quadriceps injury, which means rookie Chad Williams will play in his first game. Receiver John Brown has been ruled out with a quadriceps injury, which means rookie Chad Williams will play in his first game. (Arizona Republic)

FFToday's Take: Missing David Johnson and Brown, the Cardinals will be relying on veteran Larry Fitzgerald and a combination of Kerwynn William, J.J. Nelson and Jaron Brown for their offensive production. Even in a plus matchup against the Colts, its difficult to trust this offense to post above average fantasy statistics.
