Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald will move around the offensive formation this season so the team can keep defenses honest, according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury.
Huddle Up: Fitzgerald had a disappointing season in 2018 but should continue to have a solid role in the passing game. He has been a consistent contributor in fantasy leagues during his career and can still be considered a No. 3 receiver in most leagues.

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald has shown up to almost every voluntary workout so far during his 16th NFL offseason. 'I am hoping he enjoys the process and enjoys what the offense turns into and gives him a reason to stick around a few more years,' head coach Kliff Kingsbury said. 'But he practices and he plays like he's trying to make the team, and that's the biggest compliment I can give him. He doesn't need it, and you'd think he's starving out there. It's impressive to watch.'
Huddle Up: Fitzgerald is learning a new offense, and he is working with rookie Kyler Murray trying to develop a rapport. The veteran remains a freak of nature who refuses to allow Father Time to catch up to him. He had 69 grabs for 734 yards and six touchdowns in 2018, but the lower production was more due to a poor offense than anything on him. He remains a decent WR3/4 or flex fantasy option heading into 2019.

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson and WR Larry Fitzgerald were not present during practice Monday, May 20.
Huddle Up: Both Johnson and Fitzgerald could participate in practice later this offseason and should be on the field for mandatory minicamp. Johnson will be a No. 1 running back in fantasy leagues this upcoming season, while Fitzgerald could be a No. 3 receiver.

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald could reach 100 catches because of all the 'quick-rhythm throws' in head coach Kliff Kingsbury's offense, in the opinion of Bucky Brooks of NFL.com.
Huddle Up: Fitzgerald is coming off a down year, but with Kyler Murray under center and a pass-happy offense being installed, he could see an uptick in his numbers. While 100 catches may be a little optimistic, Fitzgerald is Arizona's most dependable receiver. It wouldn't be a shock to see him finish as a solid WR3.

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald didn't want to wrap up his career after a poor 2018 season. 'We had a really bad season last year and I just didn't want to go out on that level,' Fitzgerald said on a podcast via the team's official website. 'You've got to live the rest of your life knowing you went out on that level.'
Huddle Up: Fitzgerald showed he still has plenty left in the tank, posting 69 grabs for 734 yards and six touchdowns in his 15th NFL season. However, his yardage total did mark a career low. He is more of a WR4 or WR5 in most fantasy leagues heading into 2019.

Updating previous reports, Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald's one-year deal is worth nearly $16 million. He'll have an $11 million base salary and received a $4.85 million signing bonus.
Huddle Up: Fitz took a step back in fantasy last season, albeit the quarterback issues had something to do with it. That may not change in 2019, and he's a PPR WR3 target with minimal upside.

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald needs 23 receptions to reach 1,326 receptions and pass former NFL TE Tony Gonzalez for second place on the all-time receptions list. Former NFL WR Jerry Rice tops the list at 1,549 catches. For a loftier goal, Fitzgerald needs 13 touchdowns to reach 129 career receiving touchdowns and pass former NFL WR Marvin Harrison for fifth on the all-time receiving touchdowns list.
Huddle Up: After Fitz finishes his 2019 campaign, he'll go down as one of the greatest wide receivers in the history of the game. His 2018 season left something to be desired, but he has scored at least six touchdowns in each of the last four seasons. With a new offensive minded head coach and another offseason under Josh Rosen's belt, Fitz possesses PPR WR2 value.

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald announced Wednesday, Jan. 23, that he'll return for the 2019 season.
Huddle Up: Fitz had a 69-734-6 season, which was well below the 100-catch, 1,000-yard seasons the three years previously. The rookie quarterback was part of the problem, but he doesn't have much more upside next season. He's still a PPR asset, but he'll be a mid-round option as a WR3.

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald caught four of his nine targets for 36 yards and a touchdown in Week 17 versus the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: There is a chance Fitzgerald was playing the final game of his distinguished career, although he still has plenty left to give physically. Whether or not he wants to return for another year of the Cardinals' rebuilding project is another story. Fitzgerald ends his 15th season with 69 catches, 734 yards and six touchdowns. If he calls it a career, he'll do so ranked inside the top three all-time in career receptions (1,303) and receiving yards (16,279) with an invite to the Hall of Fame coming five years down the road.
