Larry Fitzgerald hauled in 10-of-11 targets for 78 yards in the Cardinals' Week 13 win over the Redskins.
Fitzgerald was the only receiver doing anything early, racking up five catches for 59 yards including a great catch-and-run in the two-minute drill in the first half. He kept it going after the break, adding another five catches including some big third-down conversions. Fitz also drew a third-down-converting penalty on Josh Norman on the game-sealing touchdown drive. Still going strong at the back-end of a spectacular career, Fitzgerald became the youngest player to reach 1,100 catches in NFL history on Sunday while jumping both Cris Carter and Marvin Harrison for third on the all-time list. The Canton-bound receiver will be a back-end WR1 next week in Miami. Dec 4 - 7:54 PM

Date:

Redskins coach Jay Gruden suggested Josh Norman could follow Larry Fitzgerald into the slot "in certain situations."

Fitzgerald plays the vast majority of his snaps from the slot, and Norman is rarely asked to cover slot receivers. Still, Fitzgerald is easily Arizona's best receiver, so it would make sense for the Redskins to get Norman on him whenever possible. Ultimately, Fitzgerald should see a lot more Kendall Fuller than Norman, making this a great matchup for the veteran receiver.
Dec 1 - 11:35 AM

Larry Fitzgerald caught 4-of-4 targets for 53 yards in the Cardinals' Week 12 loss to the Falcons.

Fitzgerald started hot with a couple catches early in the first quarter, and one was a sick one-handed catch as he was falling to the ground on third down. But Fitzgerald went missing for what seemed like the rest of the day. He was just one target after halftime, even with Falcons top CB Desmond Trufant (pectoral) sitting this one out. Fitzgerald should rebound next week at home against the Redskins. Playing in the slot, he should avoid Josh Norman's coverage.
Nov 27 - 4:50 PM

Larry Fitzgerald caught 6-of-7 targets for 63 yards in the Cardinals' Week 11 loss to the Vikings.

Carson Palmer threw for only 198 yards and David Johnson hogged 11 targets, resulting in a slow day for Fitz. His knee and ankle injuries did not appear to be a concern, making a few fantastic grabs in tight coverage. In Week 12, it would not be surprising if Desmond Trufant chased Fitzgerald into the slot, something Trufant has been known to do. Still the Cardinals' only stable wide receiver play in fantasy, Fitzgerald will remain a strong fantasy WR2.
Nov 20 - 5:45 PM

Larry Fitzgerald (knee, ankle) has been taken off the Cardinals' injury report for Week 11.

Fitzgerald got his usual breather on Wednesday but has practiced fully the last two days. Coming off his best game of the season, Fitzgerald will be a borderline WR1 against a Minnesota squad that has lost four straight.
Nov 18 - 3:57 PM

Larry Fitzgerald (knee) practiced again on Friday.

He'll be all systems go as an upside WR2 against the Vikings, whose weakness is in coverage of slot receivers and tight ends. Fitz runs 70 percent of his routes in the slot and has six-plus catches in five consecutive games.
Nov 18 - 1:37 PM

Larry Fitzgerald (knee) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

It's confirmation Fitz will be good to go against the Vikings. Fitz is clearly dealing with a little something after undergoing an MRI and missing Wednesday's practice, but few players are tougher. He can be fired up as a top-15 option.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: The fact that Fitzgerald runs most of his routes of the slot should help him avoid Xavier Rhodes, and that’s enough to consider pulling the trigger in GPPs. He’s involved near the goal-line and hasn’t seen fewer than seven targets in a game this year, giving him a very high floor at a $7,000 price tag. Rhodes has played just 3% of his snaps out of the slot, while Fitzgerald has run out of that position 65% of the time. Expect Fitz to give Trae Waynes (65.1 PFF grade, well below average) fits on Sunday afternoon.
Nov 17 - 4:25 PM

Larry Fitzgerald (knee) was working in the portion of Cardinals practice open to the media on Thursday.

Fitz will almost certainly be listed as "limited," or perhaps even "DNP," but he's on track to start Sunday's game against the Vikings. Even at less than 100 percent against a tough opponent, Fitz will be in the back-end WR1 mix for Week 11.
Nov 17 - 1:35 PM

Larry Fitzgerald (knee) didn't practice on Wednesday.

Fitzgerald's knee injury last week was serious enough to require an MRI but the Cardinals remain optimistic that he'll play Sunday against Minnesota. He's had a productive season so far, totaling the second-most catches behind only Antonio Brown. Fitz will be a WR2 if he suits up this week.
Nov 16 - 4:29 PM

Larry Fitzgerald (knee) is considered day to day, but expected to be ready for Week 11.

Speaking Monday, coach Bruce Arians said Fitz was "sore," but expected to practice this week. Fitz will have his reps rationed with an eye toward getting him as healthy as possible for Sunday's game against the Vikings. At less than 100 percent, Fitz will be a WR2 against a defense that's struggling but still capable of shutting down opposing wideouts.
Nov 14 - 2:19 PM

Larry Fitzgerald will undergo an MRI on his knee on Monday.

Fitzgerald said Sunday night that his knee was "sore." It sounds like a precautionary test after Fitzgerald made it through the Cardinals' victory over the 49ers and saw a season-high 18 targets, catching 12 for 133 yards. Beat writer Kent Somers suggested Fitzgerald may be dealing with an MCL sprain. Regardless, it would be surprising if Fitzgerald missed Week 11 against the Vikings.
Nov 13 - 9:29 PM

Larry Fitzgerald caught 12-of-18 targets for 133 yards in the Cardinals' 23-20, Week 10 win over the 49ers.

The 18 targets were easily a season-best for the 33-year-old. Fitzgerald was making incredible catches one after another, but he was also banged up taking a lot of hits. Fitzgerald made a diving catch early in the game, landing hard on his ribs. On another grab, he was flipped on top of his head and left to the locker room early before halftime. He was ready after the break and didn't miss many snaps. Fitzgerald will head back home to Minnesota to face the Vikings in Week 11. Minnesota's defense has crumbled of late. Fitzgerald will be a WR2.
Nov 13 - 7:36 PM

Larry Fitzgerald (ankle) is no longer listed on the Cardinals' injury report for Week 10.

Fitzgerald was limited at practice this week but was never in any danger of missing Sunday's game against San Francisco. Consider him a WR1 in a plus matchup against an inept Niners' secondary.
Nov 11 - 3:47 PM

Larry Fitzgerald (ankle) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

Fitz will be a WR1 against the Niners.
Nov 10 - 5:40 PM

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

He did very little, but coach Bruce Arians said Fitzgerald is going to start getting Wednesdays off for the second half of the season. Fitzgerald is 33 and doesn't need to keep going hard every day at practice at this stage.
