Larry Fitzgerald caught 10-of-11 targets for 138 yards and a touchdown in the Cardinals' Week 6 win over the Bucs.
Fitzgerald did almost all of his damage in the first quarter alone before the Cardinals took their foot off the passing-game gas with a huge lead. Carson Palmer finished with just 22 attempts in a 38-point performance by Arizona's offense. As usual, Fitzgerald has been a high-floor fantasy play with spiked weeks this year. He'll get a tougher Week 7 draw against the stingy Rams slot coverage, but Fitzgerald is at worst an every-week WR2. Oct 15 - 7:26 PM

Date:

Larry Fitzgerald came down with six catches for 51 yards on 10 targets Sunday in the Cardinals’ Week 5 loss to the Eagles.

Fitzgerald’s first catch came with 21 seconds remaining in the first half. He padded his stats with a handful of garbage-time catches but never broke the big one. Fitzgerald has had an uneven fantasy year, blowing up for 149 yards in Week 3 but averaging just 44.5 yards in his other four contests. He should be in for a bounce-back game next week against the Bucs.
Oct 8 - 6:13 PM

Larry Fitzgerald caught 4-of-7 targets for 32 yards and one touchdown in the Cardinals' Week 4 win over the 49ers.

With John Brown (quad) back healthy, Fitzgerald saw just 13.7% of the targets after seeing 31.25% last week when Brown was out. Fitzgerald was pretty quiet most of the day when these two offenses combined for just eight field goals in regulation. Fitzgerald, however, caught the game-winning 19-yard touchdown down the seam with 37 seconds left in overtime. He'll remain a solid WR2 in a pass-happy offense next week against the Eagles' leaky secondary on the road.
Oct 1 - 8:11 PM

Larry Fitzgerald caught 13-of-15 targets for 149 yards and one touchdown in the Cardinals' 28-17, Week 3 loss to the Cowboys on Monday night.

The Cardinals' offense came out piping-hot in the first quarter. Carson Palmer was getting all the time in the world to throw, and Fitzgerald racked up seven grabs in the first quarter alone. He cooled a bit but then turned it all the way back up in the fourth quarter, winning a pair of 50-50 balls over the top of Orlando Scandrick for big gains and then capping off a drive with a 15-yard touchdown on a corner route against Anthony Brown. Fitzgerald and Dak Prescott were the best players on the field. Fitzgerald was real quiet in Weeks 1 and 2 but proved Monday he's a solid top-20 fantasy receiver. He gets the 49ers' rag-tag secondary at home in Week 4.
Sep 25 - 11:48 PM

Larry Fitzgerald caught 3-of-6 targets for 21 yards in the Cardinals' Week 2 win over the Colts.

Fitzgerald drew an end-zone target in single coverage early in the game, but Carson Palmer's throw was a little too far behind him. Fitzgerald is off to a slow start, but he should pick it up soon with 19 targets through a pair of contests. On paper, his matchup will be favorable in Week 3 against the Cowboys.
Sep 17 - 4:24 PM

Larry Fitzgerald caught 6-of-13 targets for 74 yards in the Cardinals' Week 1 loss to the Lions.

It was a surprisingly inefficient day from Fitzgerald against a defense he should have had success against. Carson Palmer certainly did not help matters with his inaccuracy, but Fitzgerald was not able to haul in several passes he usually would catch. If the volume sticks around, Fitzgerald should have a better day next week against the Colts.
Sep 10 - 5:31 PM

Larry Fitzgerald wasn't targeted in the Cardinals' third preseason game.

He played less than a handful of snaps, making the nominal start and then heading to the sideline. Fitzgerald remains the focal point of the Cardinals' passing offense, even at 34, and keeps himself in incredible shape. Fitzgerald is looking like a potential bargain being drafted as WR24 in PPR formats.
Aug 26 - 8:24 PM

Larry Fitzgerald did not reveal his retirement plans while speaking with reporters on Sunday.

Fitzgerald said the "only reason" he is still playing is to chase a ring, suggesting if the Cardinals surprise with a run this year it likely would be his last. Outside of that, however, Fitzgerald did not offer much in the way of a timeline. "I don’t know what the future holds," Fitzgerald said. "I feel good right now. When that changes, I’ll let you know." Notably, Fitzgerald's contract runs out after this season, but it sounds like his future will remain a mystery until at least January.
Jul 23 - 5:25 PM

Larry Fitzgerald will address his post-2017 career plans at training camp.

Once he addresses it, he won't discuss the matter again, Fitzgerald said. This would seem to hint that 2017 is Fitzgerald's final season, but we'll find out for certain come July. Fitzgerald turns 34 this summer and is certainly headed to the Hall of Fame once his playing days are through.

May 22 - 10:35 PM

Larry Fitzgerald told ESPN's Jim Trotter he's "definitely" returning for the 2017 season.

It'll be the final year of his contract, and quite possibly Fitzgerald's farewell tour. We'll be interested to see whether Fitzgerald's decision to play another season will affect Carson Palmer, who is believed to be more seriously weighing retirement. Turning 34 before the 2017 season, Fitzgerald has strung together consecutive 100-catch, 1,000-yard campaigns. Although he has faded down the stretch in each of the last two years, Fitzgerald remains Arizona's best and most reliable receiver, reviving his career in the slot under coach Bruce Arians, who used Hines Ward and Reggie Wayne in similar roles in each of his past two stops.
Feb 1 - 9:41 PM

Larry Fitzgerald remains undecided on whether he'll return for a 14th NFL season in 2017.

"Pretty soon," Fitzgerald said of when the decision will come. NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the team would like to know by mid-February. Fitz is due $11 million in the final year of his contract. Fitz has remained a well above average player, but has made a habit of fading in the second halves of seasons. The future Hall-of-Famer turns 34 in August.
Jan 31 - 1:40 PM

When asked if he plans to return for another season, Larry Fitzgerald said, "I don't know."

"Right now I'm enjoying the offseason, giving my body some time to rest, working on my golf game," said Fitzgerald. "In a couple weeks I'll figure out what I'm going to do for next year." The 33-year-old seems to be seriously considering retirement, but isn't in any rush to make that decision. Fitzgerald earned his 10th Pro Bowl nod in 2016 while topping 1,000 yards for the eighth time in his career.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians won't try to lobby Larry Fitzgerald on his retirement decision.

Every indication is that FItz is seriously considering hanging up his cleats after 13 years in the league. Of course, he has $11 million reasons to return for 2017. Fitz once again slowed down as 2016 progressed, but remained a well above-average player. Fitz has said he won't announce his retirement ahead of time and embark on a farewell tour, but the best guess is he'll be back for 2017.
Jan 2 - 1:47 PM

Larry Fitzgerald pulled in five catches for 43 yards and a touchdown on seven target Sunday in the Cardinals' Week 17 win over the Rams.

Fitzgerald’s touchdown Sunday was his first since Week 5 and the 104th of his career. Another year, another 1,000-yard season for Fitzgerald. He also led the NFL with 107 catches, one ahead of Pittsburgh’s Antonio Brown. Fitzgerald’s career hit a bit of a rough patch a few years ago but he’s reinvented himself over the last two seasons as one of the game’s premier slot receivers. Fitzgerald has been mulling retirement but obviously still has plenty left in the tank. He’ll be a rock-solid WR2 if he comes back next season.
Jan 1 - 8:41 PM

Larry Fitzgerald says he wouldn't announce his retirement ahead of time.

Fitz doesn't want to be paraded around the league and feted like a New York Yankee or Boston Red Sox player. "That’s not how I’m wired," Fitz said. "Tim Duncan is more my speed." Fitz has been adamant he'll finish his career in Arizona. Most signs suggest he'll be returning in 2017, but not all.
