According to Mike Garafolo on Twitter, Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald has tested positive for COVID-19 and will miss Week 12 against the New England Patriots.
Testing positive means that Fitzgerald may be away from the team for 10 or more days if he is showing symptoms. With Fitzgerald sidelined we could see an expanded role for Christian Kirk and Andy Isabella. DeAndre Hopkins will remain a target hog but will have to deal with Stephon Gilmore in coverage. Kirk is currently our 29th ranked receiver for Week 12. Isabella is ranked 63rd.
ARI WR Larry Fitzgerald - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at Los Angeles Rams
Larry Fitzgerald had a touchdown last week in a surprise victory over the Seahawks, but he was held to just 48 yards on four receptions. Fitzgerald has a pretty high floor it seems as he’s had at least three catches and at least 40 yards in four of his last six games, but if you need more than seven PPR points, it’s hard to bank on him. He has just four touchdowns on the season and will face a tough Rams defense to finish off the season. If you have an option with better upside, you should look elsewhere, but he’s not a terrible WR3 option if you just need a few guaranteed points.
