Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald told Sports Illustrated's Jim Trotter that he's "definitely" returning for the 2017 season. He'd been contemplating retirement but will return for a 14th NFL season. Fitz turns 34 in August and has certainly slowed down, posting the 2 lowest yards-per-catch marks (11.1 and 9.6) of his career over the past 2 years. But he's remained effective in his revamped possession-receiver role, tallying the 2 biggest catch totals (109 and 107) and going over 1,000 yards in both seasons. Fitzgerald finished 9th among WRs in PPR points in 2016 and 17th in non-PPR. His 2017 fantasy outlook will depend heavily on whether QB Carson Palmer returns. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport believes Fitzgerald deciding to play another season is a "good sign" that Palmer will do the same.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald played 67 of 70 snaps vs. Miami, but you wouldn’t know it by his production. The future Hall of Famer notched just 3 catches for 12 yards on 9 targets. Fitz hadn’t posted fewer than 4 catches in a game since Week 15 of 2015. Heavy rain played a role — and Carson Palmer’s inability to adapt — so we wouldn’t overreact here. Fitz will remain a sure-fire fantasy starter for next Sunday’s matchup with New Orleans.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) is not listed on the final Week 11 injury report. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday after sitting out Wednesday. He's still probably not at 100% but is safe to get into fantasy lineups for this weekend's game against the Vikings.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald on Thursday was sporting a brace on the knee he injured last weekend, according to insider Mike Jurecki. Fitz is expected to play against the Vikings on Sunday, but he won't be at 100%. That, plus a tough matchup, leaves him as just a borderline WR2 for Week 11.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) was held out of Wednesday's practice. He's expected to play against the Vikings this weekend, but we'll feel better about his fantasy outlook if he gets on the practice field Thursday and/or Friday.

Injury Predictor

Fitz performed as a WR1 last year in his 12th NFL season. He benefited from playing with a top NFL QB and a talented supporting cast. That nucleus returns for 2016, but young talents in Michael Floyd and John Brown threaten his workload. A full season of David Johnson will make it even tougher for Fitz to repeat his 9 TDs from a year ago. While Fitzgerald should retain weekly fantasy value, he’s much more likely to finish as a WR3 than a WR1. Avoid paying for 2015 production with this future Hall of Famer.
