Larry Fitzgerald

Recommended Posts

In 2018, Fitzgerald had 69 catches for 734 yards and 6 TDs and finished WR25 in a ppr league, so he would be easily a WR2 if he can come close to 100 catches for 1,000 yards. Personally, I suspect the under for both, but he could still be a fringe WR2 as he was last year with fewer than 70 receptions.

In redraft Fitz is getting drafted after Courtland Sutton and Dante Pettis. No thanks. Give me Fitz every time. He’s going in WR 3-4 range and can be a strong WR 2 with a projected volume increase.

Larry Fitzgerald is impressed by the tempo of new coach Kliff Kingsbury's offense.

"It’s not so much what he’s installing that stand out; it's how its run, the tempo of it," Fitzgerald said. "Every single day, with more experience, we were able to run it faster and faster and faster, get more plays in more efficiently." Arizona ran the second-fewest offensive plays in the league last season at 902. Under Kingsbury, it would not be surprising if they were near the top of the league this year. That extra volume will provide a massive boost to what looks like an undervalued fantasy offense.

In the face of the trashiness that AB showed, and the continuous "me over team" this league continues to march towards, bumping this thread to show my appreciation of the classiest guy in the NFL, a guy who continuously raises his own bar while staying faithful to the team and his teammates.

Reminder of how incredible he is as a player, person, and personality, and how rarer this is becoming in today's NFL and in pro sports overall.

Larry Fitzgerald's pair of 40-yard catches in Sunday's tie with the Lions were his first since Oct. 2015.

Fitz notched grabs of 41 and 45 yards in Kyler Murray's debut, with the 45-yarder his longest reception in half a decade. No. 1 overall pick Murray was chewing up air yards, signaling not only the return of the deep ball to the Cardinals' offense, but an entirely different philosophy. Increased usage down the field — something Fitz insists he is capable of — would add some long-missing ceiling to his still robust floor.

Larry Fitzgerald caught 5-of-11 targets for 104-scoreless yards in the Cardinals' Week 2 loss to the Ravens.

Fitzgerald looks a lot like the No. 1 pass-game option in the Cardinals' pass-heavy offense after two weeks. Kyler Murray has zeroed in on his slot receivers in this Kliff Kingsbury offense, as Fitz (24 targets this season) and Christian Kirk (20) continue to be the unit's featured pass-game weapons. Fitz's big 54-yard gain was more a result of the Ravens blowing a coverage, but the 36-year old otherwise earned his production and even had a highlight-worthy one-handed snag. He needs to be in fantasy lineups ahead of Week 3's matchup against the Panthers.

Larry Fitzgerald caught 6-of-8 targets for 58 yards in the Cardinals' Week 5 win over the Bengals.

It was a disappointing effort on an afternoon where both Christian Kirk and Damiere Byrd were inactive. Although his setup continues to remain gorgeous on paper, Fitz is now just 16/141 over his past three games. He has managed to catch at least five passes each time out, keeping his PPR production afloat. Fitz was delivering big plays in Weeks 1 and 2, and the Cardinals are going to need more of them. "Vs. ATL" is a juicy Week 6 matchup.

Haven't followed the cardinals much this year, how has Fitzgerald looked in this offense?

He's fine. Possession guy. 5 catches or so, 50-75 yards. The Cardinals are having a lot of problems in the red zone. But if they get that figured out maybe he'll get some more td chances.
