2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
After producing three straight 100-catch seasons, we finally saw the drop off for Larry Fitzgerald in 2018 when he caught just 69 passes for 734 yards. He did still match his touchdown total (6) from both 2017 and 2016, but it became glaringly obvious that Fitzgerald's once-elite skills have deteriorated beyond the point of return.

Still, an aging wide receiver in a better offense with other weapons around him and a quarterback who can deliver the ball with the type of accuracy that Murray possesses is intriguing from a fantasy standpoint. Fitzgerald is being selected around the likes of Geronimo Allison, Sterling Shepard, Sammy Watkins and other receivers who have never - or at least haven't recently - produced quality fantasy seasons. Even in seasons that were cut short by injury, Fitzgerald has never finished with fewer than 725 receiving yards and he hasn't been below 60 receptions since his rookie season all the way back in 2004. Only twice in his career has he finished with fewer than six touchdowns in a season. Perhaps most importantly, he has never finished with fewer than 100 targets in a season, giving him a tremendous floor despite playing in some of the league's most sluggish offenses.

Fitzgerald isn't suddenly going to shoot back into being a WR1 for fantasy, but there's really no reason to think that he won't improve on his 2018 numbers. Sure, there is arguably more competition for targets, but Fitzgerald is still the only veteran pass catcher on the roster and he'll play a heavy snap share, as long as he's healthy, in an offense that could be one of the highest-paced in the league.

Don't worry about selecting him with anything other than a very late-round pick in dynasty formats, but Fitzgerald does have value in seasonal leagues for 2019.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Christian Kirk not expected to play
Ankle injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Oct 13, 7:20 am

Arizona Cardinals
Cardinals’ WR Christian Kirk, listed as questionable for Sunday against the Falcons due to an ankle injury, is not expected to play, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Kirk missed Week 5 as well with an ankle injury. In his absence, Pharoh Cooper will see increased action as Damiere Byrd is a gametime decision with a hamstring injury. The only reliable fantasy receiver of this group is Larry Fitzgerald but can be taken away if the Falcons decide to double him.


Injury Christian Kirk practices Wednesday
David Johnson works with trainers
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Oct 9, 1:42 pm

Arizona Cardinals
During open portion of Cardinals' practice today, WR Christian Kirk, CB Tramaine Brock and WR Damiere Byrd were participating. Looked like veteran days off for WR Larry Fitzgerald, DT Corey Peters and OLB Terrell Suggs. RB David Johnson was working with trainers on the side. (Bob McManaman on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Kirk and Byrd are expected to play this week in a juicy matchups against the Falcons defense. David Johnson's availability will be key for fantasy owners as backup Chase Edmonds could become a fantasy factor if Johnson (back) isn't able to suit up.


Injury Christian Kirk out for Week 5
Could be ready for Week 6
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Oct 2, 1:10 pm

Arizona Cardinals
Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (ankle) won't play Sunday at the Bengals, coach Kliff Kingsbury said, but he believes Kirk could be available the following week against Atlanta. Good news is no surgery, apparently no broken bones. Just a sprain, although Kingsbury wouldn't say more. (Bob McManaman on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Kirk has been utilized in one of the two slot positions in the Cardinals offense along with Larry Fitzgerald. WR Damiere Byrd was inactive last week with a hamstring injury and Paharoh Cooper was signed yesterday for depth. Rookie Andy Isabella could see increased playing time this week.


Injury Christian Kirk hurt late in Week 4
Ankle injury
By: Doug Orth | Mon Sep 30, 4:40 pm

Arizona Cardinals
Kliff Kingsbury said Christian Kirk has an ankle injury. Wouldn’t get more detailed. Said there would be more information Wednesday. (AZcardinals.com - Darren Urban)

FFToday's Take: Yet another injury suffered in a game that was out of hand. Kirk actually made a catch on the play after the injury, but replays showed he got twisted up pretty good on a tackle. Owners should not expect Kirk to go in Week 5 against the Bengals, which would free up more targets for Larry Fitzgerald and preseason buzz machine KeeSean Johnson.
