Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald not worried about fewer targets
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald is not concerned with his lack of targets this season. The 11-year wideout has not been targeted more than six times in a game this season. Through six games, he's had 23 catches for 283 yards and a touchdown.

Fitzgerald called his slow start, "champagne problems," per the team's official website.

"We all care about our touches and looks, don't get me wrong," Fitzgerald said. "We just don't put our touches and looks in front of what we are trying to accomplish as a team. There is a distinct difference. You are playing ball your whole life, you are in the NFL, you've been 'The Man' your whole life, so you have to put that aside and focus on what is best for your team. I think everyone has a good grasp of that."

Fitzgerald will face the Eagles at home on Sunday. He's scored 10 times in six career appearances against Philadelphia.

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.
