Larry Fitzgerald is active for Thursday with little fantasy value
Larry Fitzgerald is active for Thursday against the Rams. We break down the fantasy implications.
Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald is active against the St. Louis Rams on Thursday. He has been on the injury report for a few weeks and was limited in practice leading up to this game. On top of the injuries, he’s been very quiet on the stat sheet with just 34 yards in Week 14. The Cardinals haven’t been able to get their passing attack off the ground.
The matchup is also awful for the Cardinals. The Rams have allowed opponents in the red zone just twice in their past four games with back-to-back shutouts. Fitzgerald did have a good game against the Rams back on Nov. 9, but that was with quarterback Carson Palmer for much of the game. This game is also at St. Louis and quarterback Drew Stanton has been awful in his road games.
Fantasy impact: There is tremendous risk with Fitzgerald and it has nothing to do with his injury. Bench him.
