Larry Fitzgerald secured 2-of-4 targets for 29 yards in the Cardinals' Week 17 loss to the Niners.
Fitzgerald has essentially been a non-factor since returning from his MCL sprain. He took a backseat to Michael Floyd in this one, as Floyd blew up for an 8-153-2 receiving line. The Cardinals will need Fitzgerald and all of their weapons firing on all cylinders to have a chance at upsetting the Panthers in the Wild Card round. Dec 28 - 7:48 PM

Date:

Larry Fitzgerald (knee) is listed as probable for Week 17.

Fitzgerald is averaging just 32 yards with zero touchdowns in three games since returning from his MCL sprain. He isn't a Week 17 fantasy option.
Dec 26 - 6:46 PM

Larry Fitzgerald's $23.6 million cap number next season would take up approximately 17 percent of the Cardinals' cap space.

There's a zero percent chance Fitz will be back at that current number, but Profootballtalk has reported he won't be released. That means the sides are either already anticipating some sort of middle-ground agreement, or the Cardinals are attempting to keep any vestige of trade leverage. Fitz is still an effective player, but is no longer the vertical dynamo who earned an eight-year, $128.5 million deal in August 2011. Both sides know this. There's a good chance cooler heads prevail with a revised deal to keep Fitz in Arizona.
Dec 23 - 7:51 PM

Coach Bruce Arians said Larry Fitzgerald (knee) is playing at 70 percent.

The MCL sprain Fitzgerald sustained in Week 11 (along with inept quarterback play) continues to bother him. He's averaging a pathetic 6.46 YPC with zero touchdowns since returning to action three games ago. It's not going to get any better with talented yet inaccurate Logan Thomas taking over under center.
Dec 23 - 9:07 AM

A source tells PFT that the Cardinals will not release Larry Fitzgerald this offseason.

Fitzgerald carries an exorbitant $23.6 million cap number for 2015 as part of the eight-year, $128.5 million contract he signed in 2011. Per PFT, the future Hall of Famer could be traded, restructure his deal or lower his cap number via an extension of some sort -- but he won't be cut. Of course, this could be a leverage leak from the team looking to maintain some kind of trade market for a 31-year-old receiver who has just 61 catches, 755 yards and two touchdowns in 13 games this season.
Dec 22 - 8:33 AM

Larry Fitzgerald caught four passes for 33 yards in Sunday night's Week 16 loss to Seattle.

Fitzgerald had 11 targets, but was held back by Ryan Lindley. His longest play was a 16-yard catch late in the fourth quarter. Fitzgerald could get an upgrade with Drew Stanton hoping to return in Week 17. The Cardinals play the 49ers in their final game before the postseason.
Dec 22 - 12:53 AM

Larry Fitzgerald (knee) was upgraded to "full" on Thursday.

Fitz will be ready to go against the Seahawks, but won't be a realistic fantasy option with Ryan Lindley under center against the Legion of Boom.
Dec 18 - 7:37 PM

Larry Fitzgerald (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Fitzgerald looked healthy last week and should be close to 100 percent. With Ryan Lindley starting, he isn't on the WR3 radar for a Sunday night matchup against Seattle.
Dec 17 - 7:40 PM

Larry Fitzgerald caught 7-of-10 targets for 30 yards in the Cardinals' Week 15 win over the Rams.

He also had a 27-yard catch called back by holding. The seven grabs were Fitz's most in four games, but he was limited to catching dinks and dunks as coach Bruce Arians tried to mask Drew Stanton and Ryan Lindley's deficiencies. Fitz wasn't allowed to do work after the catch by a sound-tackling Rams defense. Fitz looked healthy tonight, and now has 10 days to heal up for Week 16, but will remain off the WR3 radar against the Seahawks' Legion of Boom.
Dec 12 - 12:02 AM

Larry Fitzgerald (knee) is listed as probable for Thursday night against the Rams.

Fitzgerald was limited in practice this week, but his status was never in doubt. He'll be a WR4 option for Week 15.
Dec 10 - 3:11 PM

Larry Fitzgerald (knee) was limited in Tuesday's practice.

The Cardinals are giving Fitzgerald as many reps off as possible on the short week. Coach Bruce Arians remains hopeful he'll play Thursday night in St. Louis.
Dec 9 - 8:58 PM

Larry Fitzgerald caught 4-of-9 targets for 34 yards Week 14 against the Chiefs.

Fitzgerald was used underneath the coverage all day, often just turning around once he reached the first down marker. It worked well for four early catches, but Fitzgerald was hardly involved in the second half. He escaped the game without suffering any setbacks, but he will be nothing more than a WR4 as long as Drew Stanton is under center.
Dec 7 - 7:37 PM

Larry Fitzgerald (knee) is active Week 14 against the Chiefs.

Fitzgerald got in work in all three practices this week, but he is still not 100 percent recovered from his sprained MCL. Still hobbled and with Drew Stanton under center, Fitzgerald is nothing more than a WR4 against the Chiefs.
Dec 7 - 2:57 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Cardinals believe Larry Fitzgerald (knee) will play Week 14 against the Chiefs.

He's listed as questionable after missing the past two games with a sprained MCL. Fitzgerald won't be anything more than a WR4, even if he does play. Drew Stanton has been horrendous since stepping back into the starting lineup. Chiefs at Cardinals has the lowest over-under (40) of the weekend.
Dec 7 - 9:19 AM

Coach Bruce Arians stated Friday that Larry Fitzgerald (questionable, knee) is "still not 100 percent" and will be a "game-time decision" for Week 14 against Kansas City.

Beat writer Darren Urban is "guessing" Fitzgerald will face the Chiefs after he was listed as a full participant in Friday's practice, but sees that as "no lock." In the fantasy playoffs, the entire Arizona offense is best left avoided with so many injuries and bumbling Drew Stanton at quarterback.
