2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
Fitzgerald was the wide receiver equivalent to running back Maurice Jones-Drew in 2011 – highly productive despite playing in an offense with several significant issues. Despite subpar play along the offensive line and at quarterback from Kevin Kolb and the accuracy challenged John Skelton, Fitzgerald still managed to catch 80 passes for 1,411 yards and eight touchdowns, averaging a career-high 17.6 yards per reception and finishing the season as the 5th ranked fantasy wide receiver. After averaging 98 receptions for 1,313 yards and 11.7 touchdowns during the 2007-2009 seasons, it is safe to say that Fitzgerald has failed to attain the levels of production that he had when Kurt Warner was at the helm of the team’s offense. Nonetheless, he has remained highly productive, averaging 85 receptions for 1,274 yards and seven touchdowns over the past two years. With Warner gone, Fitzgerald’s touchdown production has declined and that is the biggest reason for the decline in his fantasy production from 13.1 FPts/G to 10.6 FPts/G. Entering 2012, Fitzgerald remains a solid, low risk WR1 although another 1,400-yard season will be a challenge given the return of Kolb and Skelton at quarterback and the marginal upgrades made along the offensive line.

News From The Past 90 Days
Carson Palmer confirms he'll play in 2017     -- Thu Feb 9 4:00 pm --

Veteran QB a go for his 15th season

FF Today's Take: It was a longshot for Palmer to retire, especially after Larry Fitzgerald announced last week that he would be back in 2017. Palmer's salary ($15.5 million) becomes guaranteed on Friday. The Cardinals offense struggled in 2016 thanks to offensive line woes and poor play from WR Michael Floyd. Palmer finished 13th among fantasy quarterback in FPts per game.
Injury Cardinals release WR Michael Floyd     -- Wed Dec 14 2:15 pm --

DUI arrest

FF Today's Take: Floyd has flopped this season and has lost playing to Jaron Brown and J.J. Nelson throughout the season. J.J. Nelson should see increased playing time although with Cardinals focusing on David Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald and TE Jermaine Gresham in the passing, Nelson is likely to be overvalued in Week 15.
