Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald has been struck by the tempo of new HC Kliff Kingsbury's offense. "It's not so much what he's installing that stands 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. The faster guys understand the concepts the more pressure we can put on defenses." That's perhaps the most exciting aspect of Arizona's offense this season. The 2018 Cardinals ranked 31st in offensive snaps. The 2019 Cardinals should make a big move up those rankings, maybe even into the top 10. It's a reason to be excited about guys like Kyler Murray, David Johnson, Christian Kirk and Fitzgerald.

Cardinals HC Kliff Kingsbury said WR Larry Fitzgerald and QB Kyler Murray have quickly developed chemistry. "Yeah, I just think he’s a security blanket,” Kingsbury said of Fitz. “There’s a comfort level there. If you get it close, he’s going to make a play for you. A big body in traffic, across the middle, for a young QB? You know he’s going to make a big play and that goes a long way." Fitzgerald will turn 36 before Week 1 and is coming off a 30th-place PPR finish, his worst since 2014. Christian Kirk is the highest-upside in the desert this season and sits higher in our WR rankings. But it's certainly within the realm of possibility that Fitz leads the team in catches and fantasy points this season. He's a fine pick at his 8th-round ADP.

The Cardinals announced Wednesday that WR Larry Fitzgerald has re-signed on a 1-year deal and will play in 2019. Fitz lopped 50 targets, 40 receptions and 422 yards off his 2017 totals this past season, in the 1st year with QB Josh Rosen and only season under former HC Steve Wilks' staff. A full offseason with Rosen can only help, and the switch to former QB Kliff Kingsbury can't hurt after Arizona trotted out the league's worst offense a year ago. That said, we shouldn't count on Fitzgerald to jump back to anywhere near his 3 recent campaigns of more than 100 catches. Heading into his age-36 season, Fitzgerald figures to compete with 2018 rookie Christian Kirk for lead-target status. We'll see if Arizona adds to the WR corps in free agency or the draft. Fitz is a solid shot to take around his early 150.3 ADP in PlayDraft best-ball leagues, though that figures to climb now that his return is confirmed.

Injury Predictor

Fitzgerald obviously knows what it takes to make it through an NFL season. He has missed just 2 total contests over the past 10 years, none over the past 3. Fitzgerald has also delivered the 3 largest reception totals of his career over those 3 seasons. At 35, he is the definitive high-floor PPR receiver.
