Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) is active for today’s game against the Chiefs. He probably won’t be at anywhere close to 100%, though. And with QB Drew Stanton struggling, Fitz is a risky WR3.

The Cardinals "believe" WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) will play against the Chiefs today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.  A final decision won't be made until Fitz tests out the knee in pregame warmups, though.  That means we won't know his official status until around 3 pm ET.  Assuming Fitzgerald plays, it's tough to believe he'll be at 100%.  And with QB Drew Stanton struggling lately, Fitz is a shaky WR3 for Week 14.

Cardinals HC Bruce Arians deemed WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt with the Chiefs.  Arians added that Fitz is "still not 100%."  Signs point to him suiting up on Sunday, but we probably won't know for sure until inactives are announced around 3 pm ET.  And there's a good possibility that Fitzgerald plays limited snaps and/or serves as a decoy if he's active.  He's not a recommended Week 14 fantasy starter.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) returned to practice on Wednesday.  He'll be 3 weeks removed from a 2-4 week injury when Sunday's game against the Chiefs kicks off.  Assuming Fitzgerald plays in that one, he'll be a risk/reward WR3 vs. a tough KC pass defense.

Cardinals HC Bruce Arians thinks WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) might be able to practice on Wednesday.  He's yet to get back on the practice field since going down 15 days ago.  Consider Fitzgerald 50-50 to return for this weekend's game against the Chiefs.  Ideally, owners can wait another week beyond that before getting him back in fantasy lineups.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) is inactive for today’s game against the Falcons. That leaves John Brown and Michael Floyd as the top 2 WRs in a plus matchup. Brown is an upside WR3; Floyd is tough to trust after last week’s goose egg.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s showdown with Atlanta.  Fitz only put in a limited practice on Friday.  He looks 50/50 to play against the Falcons.  The 31-year-old will be a risky WR3 if he suits up, even against Atlanta’s leaky pass defense.  There's a chance Fitzgerald would be limited and/or serve as more than a decoy.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) calls himself "highly likely" to play against the Falcons on Sunday.  "It's not my call, though," he added.  Fitz didn't practice on Wednesday or Thursday and is still waiting for medical clearance from the docs.  He'll be 2 weeks removed from a 2-4 week injury when Arizona-Atlanta kicks off on Sunday.  We'll see if he's able to practice on Friday, but Fitzgerald will be a risky fantasy play if he's active this weekend.

Cardinals HC Bruce Arians says WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) is making "some progress."  He was unable to practice on Wednesday, though, and remains iffy for this weekend's game against the Falcons.  Even if Fitz suits up for that one, he'll be tough to trust in fantasy lineups.

Cardinals HC Bruce Arians said Monday that the team is still "waiting to see" if WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) will be ready for this weekend's game against the Falcons.  Fitz didn't seem particularly close to playing yesterday, and Arians admitted that he wouldn't be able to go if there was a practice on Monday.  Fitzgerald's Grade 2 MCL sprain is a 2-4 week injury, so consider him worse than 50-50 to play against Atlanta.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) is inactive for today’s game the Seahawks. That leaves John Brown and Michael Floyd as Arizona’s clear top 2 WRs. We prefer Brown against a Seattle secondary that struggles against smaller, speedy WRs, but both he and Floyd are just WR3s.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that "it would take a miracle" for Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald to play against the Seahawks today.  Fitz is dealing with a Grade 2 MCL sprain, which is a partial tear of the ligament.  Even if he's active later this afternoon, he won't be anywhere close to 100%.  Fitzgerald needs to be on fantasy benches.  Look for John Brown and Michael Floyd to serve as Arizona's top 2 WRs against a tough Seahawks secondary.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) is a game-time decision for Sunday’s showdown with the Seahawks. He didn’t practice all week. Fitz might try to gut it out for a big game, but he won’t be anywhere near 100%. There’s a good chance his snaps are limited and/or he serves as a decoy. Fitzgerald isn’t a recommended fantasy starter this week.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) sat out practice again on Thursday.  We were never expecting him to practice much this week, so this doesn't necessarily make him less likely to play this weekend.  He's obviously not a lock to suit up, though.  And he'll be a shaky fantasy play if he does.  Check back tomorrow for another update.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) did not practice on Wednesday.  "We'll see how he progresses," HC Bruce Arians said.  Fitz plans on playing against the Seahawks this weekend, but we wouldn't consider it a lock.  If he does suit up, he'll be a shaky fantasy play at less than 100% in a tough matchup.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald has been diagnosed with a Grade 2 sprained MCL.  It's a partial tear of the ligament.  He played through the injury yesterday and said Monday that he expects to play in the Week 12 showdown with the Seahawks.  But between the injury and that matchup, Fitz will be a shaky fantasy starter.  We'll keep an eye on him throughout the week.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald is scheduled to undergo an MRI on his right knee on Monday.  He suffered an MCL injury late in the 1st half of Sunday's win over the Lions.  Fitz was able to return for the 2nd half but caught just 1 ball on 1 target over the final 30 minutes.  We'll look for an update on his status tomorrow.
