Draft note
by John Paulsen
Fitzgerald’s ADP is laughable. Arizona’s pass attempts dropped by 17.2% from 2017 to 2018 and he still finished as the No. 26 receiver in PPR formats. In all likelihood, he’s getting a massive quarterback upgrade, and the offense should be much more pass-friendly under new head coach Kliff Kingsbury. Normally, it's understandable to write off a soon-to-be 36-year-old receiver, but Jerry Rice had three 1,100-yard seasons after the age of 36, and Fitzgerald is capable of following in Rice’s footsteps. He’s a steal in the eighth or ninth round.

ARI WR Larry Fitzgerald - 2019 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Larry Fitzgerald considered retirement, but ultimately, coming back for a 16th season was an easy decision. While some players go out on top, Fitzgerald didn't want to be one of those who went out on the bottom. The Cardinals had the No. 1 overall pick after being the worst team in football in 2018. "We had a really bad season last year, and I just didn't want to go out on that level," Fitzgerald said. "You've got to live the rest of your life knowing you went out on that level." Fitzgerald failed to reach 1,000 receiving yards or pull in at least 100 passes for the first time since 2014 but still led the Cardinals in receiving yards for a fourth consecutive season.

Fantasy Downside
Fitzgerald may no longer be in his athletic prime and it's fair to wonder if he'll be the focal point of the Cardinals' passing attack this year.

2019 Bottom Line
Even if he's not the focal point, Fitzgerald is expected to be a key offensive component in 2019, this time with incoming head coach Kliff Kingsbury, a new rookie QB in Kyler Murray and an assortment of young wideouts working around him in what is all but certain to be a high-volume offense. Here's something worth asking: Did Fitzgerald fail to catch 100 passes for the first time in three seasons last year because his game has diminished? Or were the reasons Fitzgerald caught "only" 69 passes for 734 yards and six touchdowns broader and tied more closely to a rookie QB playing behind an atrocious offensive line in a poor offense? We'd be willing to pay that WR3 price to find out.
