Where does he stand this year.
Any hope for a legit top Wr again?
year 2 of Palmer/Arians, The Cards won a lot, Fitz for fantasy was meh, not worth his 2013 ADP.

so Thoughts?

Watch for moves on the O-line. When Palmer has time to throw he is an above average QB. If he's under any sort of pressure he sucks. So it really depends on the play of the O-line in my opinion.
12-team Yahoo standard, non-ppr, 0.6 points per 10 kick return yards. 3WR+1Flex start, 5 bench spots. QBs get 4 points per pass TD

Week 14 quarterfinal victory AND league high score!
Week 15 victory by a 0.31 point margin! CHAMPIONSHIP GAME!!
CHAMPIONSHIP IS MINE!!!

Week 16 Championship roster:
QB: Nick Foles
WR: Demaryius Thomas, Josh Gordon, Eric Decker
RB: LeSean McCoy, Rashad Jennings
TE: Delanie Walker
Flex: Kendall Wright
Kicker: S. Hauschka
Def: KC

^yep ^^^ Arians runs a vertical offense.............vertical offenses depend heavily on online play for down field play to develop. It is also int heavy.

Example of Vert offenses
Flacco 2012 good online Flacco 2013- bad oline
River good years under Norv - good oline. bad years with norv- bad oline.

cooper returning will help most likely, but it is not like the cards got cap space to go get Albert, Monroe or Mack.  Draft Position way to late to draft Matthews.

4 games per year against SF and Seattle secondaries + emergence of Michael Floyd = not before 4th round for me.

I got him this year at the end of round 3.  I think that's about where he goes again, end of 3rd, beginning of the 4th round.  He's a guy at this point who can give you #1 WR numbers at times, but probably more like low end #1 WR.  Interesting to see how Michael Floyd impacts him as he really came on this year.    Fitzgerald was #17 this year in my PPR league, so that's not too bad.  Floyd was #28, so not too far off.  If they can upgrade that offensive line, I think both can see their numbers go up more.  As long as you aren't drafting Fitzgerald to be top 5, I think you'll be happy with him.
Da Bears!

I had him this past year and it was painful, but check this out. If this happens I'll pick him 1st round.


According to an "individual" CSN New England's Tom Curran believes "without reservation," the Patriots were interested in acquiring Larry Fitzgerald last offseason.

Curran is being extremely careful with his phrasing, but it's notable nonetheless. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported in October that moving Fitzgerald would be "in play" for the Cardinals this offseason. It's hard to imagine a better fit than the Patriots, who have a desperate need at receiver. Any potential move is greatly complicated by Fitzgerald's gargantuan $18 million salary-cap number, however. His play has also been on a slow, but steady nonetheless, downward slope. Few teams are more willing to make bold moves than Bill Belichick's Patriots, but acquiring Fitz wouldn't be easy.

Love Fitz as a player, I think he's still got it as long as he can stave the injury bug, which I think is very possible. Pending the draft, I'm not a believer in Palmer being the guy that's consistent enough to bring Fitz to his obvious WR1 potential, or that o-line being much more than half-way decent like last year. Hopefully Jon Cooper bounces back from his broken leg in 2014, because that dude has what it takes if he can get his leg right. As for now, I can't bank on Fitz for next year, Zona needs to get some things fixed.

Hopefully Larry's restructured contract will allow Arizona to sign some pro-level offensive linemen.

Two things I absolutely LOVE about Fitz:

1) He is imparting wisdom onto a young stud receiver in Michael Floyd

2) He is drawing lots of coverage away from Michael Floyd

In other words, I think Fitz's biggest contribution to fantasy this year will be to inflate Michael Floyd's numbers. He is the Alshon Jeffrey of 2014 in my books.
