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.

Andre Ellington good despite Stepfan Taylor
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Fantasy owners don't have much cause to complain about Cardinals running back Andre Ellington, not after the all-around performance he had Week 7 at Oakland, leading the team not only in rushing with 88 yards on 24 carries but also receiving with 72 yards on six catches.

But of course, many will complain because he didn't meet the gold standard of Fantasy greatness: He didn't score a touchdown. Even worse, he could have scored a touchdown (and maybe two) if not for the presence of Stepfan Taylor, who scored one on a 2-yard catch in the first quarter and another on a 4-yard run in the third.

It's an unfortunate development, to be sure. The Cardinals ran four plays from inside the 5-yard line on two separate drives, and Taylor got the ball on all of them. But it's not entirely unexpected either. Ellington has always been seen as a big-play guy, not a grinder.

The good news is that Ellington's touches continue to rise. He went from 20 in Week 5 to 25 in Week 6 to 30 here in Week 7, so the Cardinals are using him as much as they promised coming into the year. And with his big-play ability, enough of those touches will end in the end zone to keep you satisfied.

And hey, now you know who to handcuff to him. You'll want to add Taylor if only for that purpose.
