Cardinals insider Mike Jurecki notes that WR Larry Fitzgerald was dealing with an MCL sprain last week.  Fitz was listed on the Week 1 injury report with a knee but practiced in full all week.  Still, the knee issue might explain why he was on  the sidelines for 10 plays in the opener and saw just 4 targets.  Fitzgerald is not listed on the Week 2 injury report.  We'd keep him locked into fantasy lineups today, regardless of QB Carson Palmer's status.

The Cardinals and WR Larry Fitzgerald have agreed to a restructured contract.  The new deal saves Arizona $9.4 million against the salary cap this year.  There were whispers that Fitz could be traded or even released this offseason, but this news guarantees that he'll stick in the desert.  At least for 2014.  Fitzgerald's new contract comes with a $23.6 million cap hit in 2015.  He and the Cardinals will need to re-work the deal again if he wants to remain in Arizona.

Cardinals HC Bruce Arians said Tuesday that he expects WR Larry Fitzgerald (concussion) to play against the Seahawks this weekend.  All reports on Fitz's status have been positive, but the fact remains that he needs to pass through the league's concussion protocol in order to play.  Fantasy owners can pencil him into fantasy lineups but should also have a backup plan in place.  We'll continue to monitor Fitzgerald's progress this week.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald said he passed his initial concussion test on Monday.  "Those tests came back positive," he said. "I was right where I needed to be. Tomorrow I will see another neurologist to get another independent look.  At that point it’s just about how I feel going through the week. But right now I’m feeling good.”  For now, Fitzgerald is on track to play against the Seahawks on Sunday.  If he can avoid a setback, he'll be a low-upside WR2 for that matchup.

Cardinals HC Bruce Arians said Tuesday that he was considering giving WR Larry Fitzgerald the day off Wednesday.  Instead, the Arizona star participated in full.  That indicates that his hamstring troubles are passing and he's approaching 100%.  If the reports remain good throughout the week, Fitzgerald would carry big fantasy upside into a matchup with Atlanta's flammable secondary on Sunday.

Cardinals HC Bruce Arians says the extra time off after last Thursday night's game has "really helped" WR Larry Fitzgerald and his bum hamstring.  Arians estimated that Fitz was at 80% for that loss to the Seahawks.  He hasn't been 100% since originally injuring that hammy in Week 1.  The Cardinals are planning on giving him another day off on Wednesday.  "I wanna see that thing healed up 100%," Arians said.  This extra rest -- plus a Week 9 bye -- will hopefully have Fitz a full-go for the stretch run.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) is officially active for tonight's game against the Seahawks.  He put in a full practice on Wednesday and was probable on the final injury report, so the hammy might not be a significant issue.  But a tough matchup leaves him as a WR2 in fantasy.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) is probable for Thursday night's game against the Seahawks.  He practiced all week -- including a full practice on Wednesday -- after playing 62 of 68 snaps on Sunday.  The hamstring isn't as big an issue as the matchup.  Consider Fitz a WR2 for Week 7.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) was listed as a limited participant in Monday's practice.  He's dealing with a right hamstring problem after being hobbled by the left earlier this season.  But the fact that he was able to get out there today is a good sign that he'll be ready for Thursday night's game against the Seahawks.

Cardinals insider Kent Somers reports that WR Larry Fitzgerald played through a right hamstring injury on Sunday.  It was the left hammy that was bothering him earlier this season.  Fitz looked just fine against the 49ers -- going for 117 yards and a score -- but "could barely bend over in the locker room" afterward, per Somers.  It's certainly something to monitor with the Cardinals having just a few days off before Thursday night's game against the Seahawks.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) is active for today's game against the 49ers.  He "tested his hammy pretty hard" in pregame warmups, according to insider Kent Somers.  Fitz remains a risky fantasy start with limited upside in a tough matchup.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that there are "bad vibes" about WR Larry Fitzgerald's status for this afternoon's game against the 49ers.  Fitz reinjured his hamstring this week.  Arizona also plays this coming Thursday night, which might factor into Fitzgerald's status today.  With Cardinals-49ers not kicking off until 4:25 pm ET, Fitz is better off on your bench if you have another viable option.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) was limited in practice all week and is questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers.  HC Bruce Arians revealed on Friday that Fitz is dealing with a problem in a "different spot" of his hamstring than earlier this year.  Insider Kent Somers believes Fitzgerald will play, but the 4:25 pm ET start makes it a tricky situation for fantasy owners.  Between the injury and a tough matchup, Fitz will be a risky WR2 if he's active.
