Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald has informed HC Steve Wilks that he'll return for the 2018 season. The 34-year-old has remained productive, posting his 3rd straight 107+ catch campaign in 2017. He's finished as a top 9 PPR WR in all 3 of those seasons. The big question for his 2018 fantasy value will be who's chucking him the ball. Arizona doesn't currently have a single QB on the roster after Carson Palmer's retirement.

Cardinals HC Bruce Arians is retiring, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The 65-year-old spent the past 5 seasons in Arizona, compiling a 49-30-1 record and reaching the playoffs twice. We'll see whether his decision to step away impacts whether QB Carson Palmer and WR Larry Fitzgerald return for 2018.

The Cardinals and WR Larry Fitzgerald have agreed to a 1-year contract extension. Fitz has considered retirement for the past couple of years, but he's clearly planning to return for another season at this point. The 34-year-old has remained incredibly effective, despite his offense crumbling around him. Fitzgerald is currently on pace for 107 catches, 1,203 yards and 5 TDs.

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.

Injury Predictor

Heading into his 14th year as an NFL WR, Fitz has been an "iron man" of sorts. He's missed only 2 games in the past 9 seasons. The perennial Pro Bowler has 100-plus catches each of the past two season. Nice.
