Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald taking time to decide future

NFL.com - [Full Article]

The Arizona Cardinals are journeying down a new path with coach Kliff Kingsbury. One lingering question is whether Larry Fitzgerald will return for another walkabout in the desert.

Fitzgerald told SiriusXM NFL Radio on Sunday that he plans to take his time before deciding about his future.

"There's a checklist I always go through and sometimes I'm able to get to my conclusion faster than others," Fitzgerald said, via the Arizona Republic. "I have to do my due diligence in terms of just taking some time to let your body heal because when you're sore and your fingers are broken, it's easy to say, 'Man, I just don't want to do this anymore. My body's hurting.' You have to give yourself some time to decompress and take a step back."

Fantasy Impact:

Fitzgerald is set to be a free agent in 2019, but the 35-year-old reiterated he plans to play for no organization other than Arizona if he keeps his career going. Like most of the Cardinals offense, Fitzgerald had a down year by his standards, earning 69 catches and a career-low 734 yards with six touchdowns while helping buoy rookie quarterback Josh Rosen. The future Hall of Fame receiver said he plans to sit down with owner Michael Bidwill and the rest of the team brass before deciding whether to take on a 16th NFL season.

Scouting Report

Week 17 at Seattle Seahawks

Larry Fitzgerald caught six passes for 53 yards last week against the Rams and he also threw a 32-yard touchdown pass to David Johnson. Fitzgerald is one of the few players in the Cardinals’ terrible offense who has put up any reasonable fantasy points over the second half of this season.

This week, Fitzgerald faces a Seahawks defense that has been a little above average against wide receivers this year, allowing 183 receptions and 13 touchdowns to the position. He’s risky because of the horrible offense he’s in, but he’s had at least eight targets in each of his past three games and he should continue to get enough looks to be viable. Consider him a low-end WR2 option in most leagues to close out the season.
