Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald's 5 for 91 line from Thursday night's preseason game looks fine and dandy. But if you watched the game, you had to come away feeling a bit queasy about his 2012 fantasy outlook. CBS Sports' Clark Judge put it best: "More I see of Arizona, I get feeling there's no QB controversy there. There's a QB problem." John Skelton and Kevin Kolb combined for just 197 yards with 1 TD and 3 INTs in almost 3 quarters of action. And it was uglier than those numbers indicate. At this point, we're not confident in either guy's ability to consistently get the ball to Fitzgerald. Now, Fitz has finished 16th and 5th in fantasy points the past 2 years, despite shaky QB play. The guy is too talented to not get his numbers. But we're also worried about his game-to-game consistency. We still like him as a WR1, but we just lowered his projections.

On Friday, WR Larry Fitzgerald spoke about his NFL future on SiriusXM Mad Dog Sports Radio. “I just don’t have the urge to play right now,” Fitz said. “I don’t know how I’ll feel in September, October, November moving forward, but as of today I just don’t have the urge.” Currently a free agent, the 38-year-old was always believed to be leaning toward retirement. If that holds up, he'll retire with 1,432 career catches — 2nd most all-time.
NFL executives expect WR Larry Fitzgerald to retire at some point prior to the 2021 season, according to The Athletic's Mike Sando. Fitz has so far been hush-hush about his plans. He turns 38 in August and mustered just 7.6 yards per catch on 54 grabs last year. We've been anticipating this news: Fitzgerald isn't even in our 2021 WR rankings.
Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (groin) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Rams. With WR Christian Kirk on the COVID list, Arizona is down to WRs DeAndre Hopkins, KeeSean Johnson and Andy Isabella.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Cardinals are "not optimistic" that WR Larry Fitzgerald will play today against the Rams. With Christian Kirk already on the COVID list, that would likely elevate Andy Isabella to the #3 WR spot behind DeAndre Hopkins and KeeSean Johnson. Isabella has been a healthy scratch the past 3 weeks. Arizona already gets a tough matchup vs. the Rams defense. Losing 2 of his normal top 3 WRs certainly doesn't help QB Kyler Murray.
Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald has been activated from the COVID list. He should step back in as Arizona's #3 WR against the Giants this weekend, pushing Andy Isabella back to 4th on the depth chart. Fitz has been a non-factor in fantasy this year, averaging 4.3 catches and 34 yards per game with 0 TDs.
