In back-to-back losses to the Lions and Panthers, Larry Fitzgerald has caught a combined three catches for just 4 yards. He had one reception for no gain against Detroit and two receptions against Carolina, one for 6 yards and another for a 2-yard loss.
Keep in mind Fitz caught seven passes during Arizona’s Week 3 victory over Washington. He’s still getting almost the same amount of offensive snaps as teammate DeAndre Hopkins. But here’s the difference: Hopkins has been targeted a team-high 46 times by quarterback Kyler Murray and although Fitzgerald has been targeted the second-most times, only 18 passes have been thrown his way through four games. That’s one more than running back Chase Edmonds and four more than No.3 receiver Christian Kirk, who sat out the Detroit game, the story said. The story also said Kingsbury also promised this: “He’ll have a prominent role moving forward.”
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.
