2012 Pros and Cons

(+) Larry has the best hands in the league – hands-down


(+) He’s been in the Top-5 in fantasy points five of the last seven years


(+) Though his catches were down, he still had the third-most yards (1,411) and highest yards-per-catch (17.6) of his career


(+) Those 17.6 yards-per-catch were 3.9 more than he usually averages


(+) He had six 100-yard games last season with a carousel of marginal quarterback play


(+) One must think there is nowhere to go but up for the Cardinals QB situation this year


(+) Michael Floyd will help keep defenses honest and free Larry up far more than he has been since Anquan Boldin left


(+) He always attends his own receiving camp and since pretty much any receiver who attends his camp gets better, why shouldn’t he?


(+) Despite being double- and triple-teamed, his 154 targets were 4th-most among WRs


(–) His QB situation still looks to be among the worst in the NFL


(–) Eight TDs doesn't scream elite, but he should do better in that category in 2012 (six in 2010 & 13 in 2009)

2009 Review

larry fitz has best hands ever


Larry was up to his usual tricks last season.  He led the Cards in all statistical categories, something you absolutely have to have your #1 fantasy receiver do, yet some actually believe Fitz had himself an off-year.  If an “off-year” is putting up 1,000+ yards with double-digit TDs and catching close to 100 passes, then it’s not too tough to figure out why Fitz has been among the top receivers taken in fantasy drafts each year for the past five seasons.  That said, the nit-pickers do seem to have a bit of a point as he amassed well below his normal 1,400+ yards receiving (1,092) and had just three 100-yd games to boot.


larry fitzgerald 2009 stats


 


~  His 1,092 yards were the least amount of receiving yards he has put up in a full season since his rookie year in 2004 (780 yards).


~  His 11.3 yards/catch was the lowest YPC he has had in his career by over two yards.


~  His long catch on the season of 34 yards was the lowest by 13 yards (2005).


~  His 9.56 Targets per game was the third least amount of targets he has seen per game in his career (2004, 2006)


~  His 11.7 fantasy points per game (based on a Standard Fantasy Scoring Format) were the third least he has put up in his career.


~ Set a career best in receiving TDs (13)


~ Made his fourth Pro-Bowl team

2010 Fantasy Outlook







Fitz is one of the most gifted wide receivers in the game today, and it’s a lucky thing too, because his QB is about to take a major downturn in 2010.  The two most important outside factors in Fitz’s game are no longer with the team, as the second most accurate passer in NFL history (Kurt Warner) just retired, while his fellow partner in crime, Anquan Boldin, just signed with the Baltimore Ravens.  Even though the stats show that Fitz actually does better statistically when Boldin is not in the lineup, they also show that he doesn’t do nearly as well with Matt Leinart running the offense instead of Warner.  All in all, Larry’s talent should win out and keep him within the upper-echelon of fantasy WRs next year, but don’t be surprised if Fitz has to do it with a revolving QB-door all year.


~ No Warner? (Probably) No Problem!


~ WRs Steve Breaston, Early Doucet, and rookie Andre Roberts should be able to take the double-teams off of Fitz close to as well as Boldin did


~ Elite players step up when they’re needed most, which is exactly what Fitz will have to do

Contract

After the '07 season, Fitzgerald signed a four-year, $40 million contract, with $30 million of it being guaranteed.  Last year may have been a slight down-year for Fitz, but there's nothing to be concerned with on the $$$ front.  Carry on:


2010 - $6.3 million


2011 - $7 million


2012 - Free Agent*


*if AZ franchises Larry in 2012, they would owe him $23 million for that year!

Post-Larry

Two years ago, Larry Fitzgerald's four game stretch in the post-season was the most impressive run of big-time performances we've seen since Montana to Rice back when Milli was giving Vanilli nightly reach-arounds.


Fitz shattered the single-season playoff records for catches (30), yards (546), and touchdowns (7) that Rice had set back in 1989; pretty impressive considering Flash 80 had 12 catches for 215 yards and three TDs in the Super Bowl alone that year.


Fitz wasn't done after the Super Bowl either, as he managed five receptions for 81 yards and two TDs in the 2008 Pro Bowl.  That's nine TDs after the regular season ended.  So while those stats won't win you any fantasy titles, they speak definitively to the prowess he has over the NFL's elite.

Injury Report

Green

Really?!?! Do you think this guy would miss a game if Independence Day actually happened? He'd probably be the only one on the field...

Not targeted?

Nobody expected that Larry Fitzgerald to get zero targets by the end of the third quarter. When the fourth quarter came around, Bruce Arians must have been notified that this was a situation, because Fitzgerald got four targets in the quarter, and finished with one catch for 22 yards.

Pyro's take: This is surprising aspect that serves one or two purposes. Either the Cardinals just game planned it that way, or their phasing him out of the playbook. Carson Palmer went on to say: "The offense is the offense, regardless of what jersey guys are wearing and who is catching the ball," Palmer said. "You've got to go where the best opportunity to get a completion is. More often than not, that's Larry, even when he's double covered. You just don't want to force balls into him."

At this point there is no need to worry about Fitzgerald, he is too skilled to get locked down, but, the Cardinals do have a plethora of weapons, which could hamper him. Keep playing like you normally would.

Fitzgerald restructures contract

Larry Fitzgerald was back in Arizona Tuesday after a week at the Super Bowl and made an appearance at the team’s Tempe facility.

The Pro Bowl wide receiver made it a business visit.

With the Cardinals facing Fitzgerald’s bulky salary cap number for the 2014 season, Fitzgerald officially restructured his contract, easing the impact of his deal on the cap and giving the Cards much more flexibility in which to maneuver this offseason.

Specific details of the restructuring were not immediate available, nor how much cap space was created. However, Fitzgerald’s cap number had been scheduled to be more than $18 million, and the Cardinals were expected before a restructuring to have less than $2 million of cap space once the new league year commenced in March.

Fitzgerald had been scheduled to make $12.75 million in salary for 2014. The easiest way to create cap space would be to convert some of that into a signing bonus that could be pro-rated cap-wise over the life of the contract. Fitzgerald’s deal runs through the 2018 season.

Pyro's take: This should put an end to the rumors that Fitzgerald would be traded this off-season. Fitz had a bounce back season with 10 touchdowns, which is the first time he has had double-digit scores since 2009. Although, he failed to have more than 1,000 yards for the second season in a row.

Now that his contract is out of the way, #11 can focus on getting back to the top of his craft. The biggest concern for going forward for Fitz is that he will continue to lose looks to Michael Floyd, as he continues to develop. This could be most concerning in Bruce Arians offense as Fitzgerald is not the deep target, as evidenced by his 11.6 YPC average last season. At the same time Michael Floyd's YPC averaged jumped from 12.5 in 2012 to 16.0 in 2013.

Fitzgerald scores again

Wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald didn’t have his best day ever against the Eagles but once again was a thorn in Philly’s side, with five catches for 72 yards – including a 43-yard touchdown that got the Cardinals energized on offense. Fitzgerald was covered, but quarterback Carson Palmer fit it in to Fitzgerald, who had a pair of Eagles’ defenders bounce off him so he could race to the end zone.

“They bounced off me, I saw the end zone, I think it was Mike (Floyd) down there got me a good block from the free safety to help chaperone me,” Fitzgerald said. “We needed that play to get us going. We were a little stagnant before that. We just didn’t have enough of those plays to get us over the hump.”

Pyro's take: Larry has not been all world as of late, but he has been finding the endzone. Over his last three games Fitzgerald has at least five catches for 52 yards and a touchdown. The only problem is he has not had more than six catches or 72 yards. The last 100-yard game for Fitz came back in week 6. Although, #11 has found the endzone five times in the last three weeks, and seven times over his last nine games.

It is not going to be east for Larry in the fantasy playoffs as he has tough match-ups against St. Louis, Tennessee and Seattle who are 18th, 1st and 3rd against wide receivers.

Fitzgerald is questionable for Sunday

Larry Fitzgerald, who has a hamstring injury, is questionable.

Head coach Bruce Arians said it is the same hamstring that Fitz has had bothering him for a while, but this week "it's a different spot" and the team "would wait and see at game time" whether he would be able to play or not.

Pyro's take: Fitz is going to be a game time decision, and that makes going with him a tough call, as the Cardinals are a late kickoff on Sunday and we won't know his status until well after the early games kick off. If you have a better option it may be smarter to go that route this week.

The return of the Fitzjedi

In one reassuring sequence, Larry Fitzgerald caught four passes on the same drive, in the span of seven plays.

One was called back on a holding penalty, but it didn’t change the aesthetics or the overarching message:

We might be witnessing the return of a dominant Hall of Fame receiver.

There are times when Fitzgerald clearly feels the same way. Last week in Green Bay, a teammate said Fitzgerald was acting like a kid at Christmas, prancing about the sidelines and joyously saying, “We’ve got a quarterback!”

“I can not confirm that,” Fitzgerald said, grinning.

Pyro's take: Fitzgerald is an elite talent, and coming off the worst season of his career. He has every right to be happy as a kid on Christmas, as I will be if I can grab our 6th ranked wide receiver this season.

Larry Fitzgerald is back people!

From the mouth of 2012 NFL coach of the year, and new Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians: "We'll be able to play him in multiple positions so that no one can find him. To be able to play in the slot and move everybody around, move the chains on third down and still hit home runs on first down, that's the thing."

Watch this video: http://bit.ly/154zO9w

And this video: http://on.nfl.com/14nggQ1

Pyro's take: Think of how much better Larry Fitzgerald is than Reggie Wayne, the benefactor of Bruce Arian's throw happy system last year in Indy. Think about how motivated Larry will be after the worst season in his Hall of Fame career. Think about Larry lining up in the slot, in the backfield, in motion and spilt out wide with a Carson Palmer locking in on him. Short routes, hitch routes, across the middle and deep - it's a gonna be a whole new ballgame for #11.

Larry Fitzgerald is skyrocketing up my tiers and I will happily take him somewhere in the third round in upcoming drafts. He'll be a top 5 WR this year, which is saying a lot, in a year where the WR position is as deep as it's ever been since I started playing fantasy football in 1998!

Pro Bowl: Fitz pulls out, replaced by Steve Smith (NYG)

Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald will not be making the trip to Miami for the Pro Bowl this year due to various injuries he's been dealing with for awhile now. Fitz will be replaced on the team by Giants WR Steve Smith.

Pyro's take: Smith ended up 3rd in the NFC in receiving yards this year with 1,220 and 1st in receptions with 107. The third-year receiver is also the first Giants wideout to make the Pro Bowl since 1968.

Fitz's elbow injury merely a bruise

According to Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt, the elbow injury sustained by wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald is merely a contusion and will have no affect on his practice or playing time going forward.

Pyro's take: The Cardinals will likely be resting their starters at least a bit this coming weekend, so if Fitz doesn't play, it will have nothing to do with this injury. Keep an eye out this week for what Whiz plans on doing with his starters in Week 17 against the Pack.

Larry Fitz ready to give it a go

Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald is active for the game against the Lions today.

Pyro's take: Fitz comes through on his promise as usual. He is, of course, a must-start on your fantasy team against a Lions defense that couldn't stop a mouse from crossing the field if they tried.

Fitzgerald ups his reps, likely to play Sunday

Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald (knee) did more at practice today than earlier in the week and though he is listed as questionable for Sunday, he says there is no doubt he'll be out there playing against the Lions.

Pyro's take: Fitz should be able to give it a go this weekend, so make sure you get him in your fantasy lineup as he has a great matchup against the lowly Lions.

Fitz limited in practice, but should play Sunday

Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald (knee) was limited in practice on Wednesday, but believes he will be out on the field this weekend against the Lions.

Pyro's take: Fitz also says that even though his MCL is sprained, it's the bone contusion that's causing him more pain. As long as he progresses throughout the week, he should have no trouble playing on Sunday and will definitely be a WR1 for your fantasy football team going up against the Lions.

Fitz's MRI reveals no significant damage

The Cardinals released a statement regarding the MRI taken on wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald today:
“He had an MRI today that revealed a bone contusion and right knee sprain. However the knee is stable and there isn’t any more significant damage. He’ll be evaluated as the week progresses.”

Pyro's take: Fitz has also tweeted a couple of times that he is just fine and expects to practice on Wednesday. We'll keep you updated as more info comes along, but for now, it seems safe to keep the WR1 in your fantasy football lineup for this weekend.

Cards optimistic Fitz will be just fine

Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt said on Tuesday morning that there was no definitive news on the knee injury wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald suffered Monday night, but mentioned that the doctors cleared him to continue playing and that Fitz would have an MRI today just to be sure everything was okay.

Pyro's take: If the doctors cleared him 15 minutes after he suffered the injury, we tend to believe he'll be just fine. We expect him to miss some practice time this week, but our guess is he'll be playing in Week 15 against the Lions. Check back to be sure you can get him in your fantasy lineup for the playoffs.

Fitzgerald restructures his contract

Arizona Cardinals' all-world WR Larry Fitzgerald has restructured his contract to help the team gain some extra salary cap room. Though Fitz doesn't like to air his personal business, he did have this to say: “Guys that are elite players in the business, they have to sacrifice,” Fitzgerald said. “I know my fellow guy Q, he is in a position he doesn’t want to be in and I just want to see him happy. We talked about it when we moved into the new stadium, I remember in a preseason game talking with him about the Ring of Honor and how nice it would be to both have our names up there one day.” “I volunteered,” Fitzgerald said. “I told them if they needed something I wouldn’t hesitate. They said they needed it.”

Pyro's take: This is yet another of many reasons to have much love for this kid. He plays the game with his heart on his sleeve and understands that in the world of sports, you don't always have to be a jag to get what you want. Whether this move gets the Cardinals to pony up the cash for a new deal for Anquan Boldin or not remains to be seen, but it certainly doesn't hurt.

Fear of failure drives Fitzgerald

In a recent interview, Arizona Cardinals WR said that even though he is one of the best receivers in the league, "the biggest thing that scares me is failure. That's my motivating factor."

Pyro's take: Some athletes lose the competitive drive once they ink the big deal. Not Fitzgerald. In July, he invited several current NFL receivers, as well as Cris Carter and Jerry Rice, to his home in Minnesota to work out. Rice was able to keep up with Fitz even at the ripe old age of 46!

Fitz is a beast, and draft him like you would one. We like two Johnsons ahead of him, and our debate of Moss or Fitz continues. Either way, he is a top 4 WR in all formats.
