Resurgence all too short for Larry Fitzgerald
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald looked like he'd get back to being a Fantasy mainstay with the return of quarterback Carson Palmer to the starting lineup Week 6 against Washington, catching six passes for 98 yards and a touchdown. But he followed up that performance Week 7 at Oakland with one that looked an awful lot like what he did all those weeks without Palmer.

In fact, in terms of yardage, it was his worst performance of the season. He caught four passes for 21 yards.

Apart from that Week 6 showing, he has averaged just 37.0 yards in five games, and though the return of Palmer was widely credited for the outlier performance, Palmer was also healthy for Fitzgerald's second-worst showing Week 1 against San Diego, when he caught one pass for 22 yards.

In the long run, Fitzgerald figures to be better off with Palmer than Drew Stanton, but as was the case in 2013, the lows for him figure to be extremely low. In points-per-reception leagues, you can roll the dice on him a little easier than standard formats, but clearly, the return of Palmer isn't the key to his success.

Cardinals' Larry Fitzgerald limited Week 7
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald was limited Week 7 against the Raiders.

Fitzgerald hauled in four passes, but only gained 21 yards. He was mostly a short-yardage threat, with his longest reception going for 7 yards. Fitzgerald was targeted five times, which tied him for second on the team. After catching the first pass of the second half, Fitzgerald was shut out for the rest of the game. 

He'll take on the Eagles Week 8.

Cardinals receivers looking for more success
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Cardinals passing game had new life breathed into it with Carson Palmer's return, and Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd will look to continue reaping the rewards Sunday at Oakland.

Both Floyd and Fitzgerald found the end zone Week 6, and they should find success again. The Raiders haven't been terrible overall against wide receivers this season but have fallen apart over the last two games. Dolphins and Chargers wideouts have averaged 26.5 Fantasy points, with three touchdowns and 379 yards combined.

The downside to this matchup? The Raiders have not been particularly competitive this season, so opposing quarterbacks don't need to put the ball in the air much. Only one team has had fewer passes attempted against it than the Raiders at 30.0 per game. Still, consider both players solid Fantasy options for Week 7, with Floyd still getting the edge.

Carson Palmer looks healthy enough to use
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer was plenty productive Week 6 against Washington, completing 28 of 44 passes for 250 yards and two touchdowns in a rather abrupt return from a shoulder nerve issue that caused him to miss three games.

That makes Palmer 2 for 2 in throwing for 250 yards and two touchdowns this season. You'll take that in Fantasy.

Coach Bruce Arians' comments Monday make Palmer even more attractive in Fantasy. He said 44 attempts will be the norm for him with the way defenses stack the box against the Cardinals. With wide receiver Michael Floyd and Larry Fitzgerald at his disposal, Palmer certainly has the weapons to make the most of all those throws.

He won't play mistake-free football all season -- he threw 22 interceptions last year, to put it in perspective -- but if you feel like your starting quarterback is bringing you down, he's in a situation to put up consistent numbers if his shoulder continues to feel good.

You have to like his matchup Week 7 at Oakland. Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard both have him in their top 12 for the contest. Though the Raiders rank a modest 11th against the pass, that's just because they're so busy getting beat by the run. They've allowed the fourth-highest passer rating of any team this season.

Cardinals' Larry Fitzgerald breaks scoring drought in Week 6 win
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald caught all six of his targets for a team-high 98 yards while scoring his first touchdown of the year in his team's 30-20 win over the Redskins in Week 6.

Fitzgerald was clearly more comfortable with Carson Palmer back under center, posting a perfect catch rate after managing only 13 catches on 28 targets in his first four games. The touchdown was his first since Week 13 of last season. If Palmer didn't suffer a setback with his shoulder during the win, Fitzgerald could be set up for another big performance in Week 7 against the Raiders.
