Player Outlook

Larry Fitzgerald had a huge rebound season in 2015 for the Cardinals, but his production might be a little misleading and could lead to him being overdrafted this year. Overall, he was awesome last season with 109 catches for 1,215 yards and nine touchdowns on 146 targets. He turned back the clock to 2007, which was the last time he had over 100 catches, 1,200 yards and nine touchdowns in the same season. But it will be hard for Fitzgerald -- who will be 33 in August -- to repeat those stats when Michael Floyd and John Brown are healthy. We saw Fitzgerald's production tail off when all three played together. Fitzgerald was dominant to open last season when Floyd was limited with a hand injury in the first five games with 35 catches for 490 yards and six touchdowns over that span. Fitzgerald then scored just once in his next eight games when Floyd appeared to be back at 100 percent, with two games with double digits in Fantasy points over that span. He's still worth drafting as at least a No. 3 Fantasy receiver, but he should not be considered a starter in the majority of leagues. He could be more bust than boom in 2016.

Player News
  • Fitzgerald (knee) is not slated to play in Sunday's preseason game against the Texans, Darren Urban of AZcardinals.com reports. Fitzgerald, who has been dealing with a minor MCL sprain, was actually on the field during early warmups with his helmet on, catching passes. Per the report, the veteran wideout "was moving around fine," with the decision to hold him out of action Sunday presumably precautionary in nature.

  • Fitzgerald (knee) wasn't expected to practice Thursday but was seen in pads prior to drills, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports. Fitzgerald may have been able to change the mind of head coach Bruce Arians, who has been the driving force behind holding out the wide receiver as he tends to a slight MCL sprain. Individual drills would be a good start Thursday, but there's no need for Fitzgerald to push his luck with more than two weeks remaining before the regular season opener.

  • Although Fitzgerald (knee) will miss Thursday's practice, head coach Bruce Arians wouldn't rule out the wide receiver for Sunday's preseason contest at Houston, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports. Fitzgerald has had an up-and-down week as he deals with a slight MCL sprain. Sidelined at last Friday's game in San Diego, he returned to drills Sunday, during which he suffered a setback. Fitzgerald is unlikely to take the field "until this calms down," according to Arians, leaving his status in question for the Cardinals' upcoming, and all-important, third outing of exhibition season.

  • Fitzgerald (knee) will be held out of Wednesday's practice, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports. After overextending himself in Sunday's session, Fitzgerald has seemingly been given an ultimatum by head coach Bruce Arians. The effort to avoid an aggravation of Fitzgerald's slight MCL sprain is admirable, especially with fellow wideout John Brown suffering through lingering concussion symptoms. Instead, rest and rehabilitation will dominate Fitzgerald's schedule for the time being.

  • Fitzgerald (knee) won't practice Monday, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports. "It's more me than him," head coach Bruce Arians said. Stuck to the sideline during Friday's preseason game due to a slight MCL sprain, Fitzgerald alleviated fears about the injury with a return to practice Sunday. Just a day later, though, he'll sit out again. Arians relayed that Fitzgerald "overworked" the knee Sunday, so a spell of rest may be in order for the veteran wide receiver. Because the issue may be one of pain tolerance moving forward, the Cardinals will likely follow a cautious approach with Fitzgerald for the foreseeable future.
