Should fantasy owners bench Larry Fitzgerald?

Kevin Casey

Yes, I think they should.

It's been a tough year for Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald. With a never-ending circus at the QB position, Fitz has only 57 catches for 652 yards and four TDs despite being targeted 134 times.

Fitz has all but disappeared when Ryan Lindley took over as the starter, with a paltry six receptions for 65 yards in the past four games.

Fantasy Impact: Fitz is still one of the most talented receivers in the league, but he's been helpless with the clown show at QB. Lindley has been named the starter against the Lions this week, so we can probably expect more of the same.

It's the middle of the fantasy playoffs, so owners can't afford to sit around and hope Lindley catches magic. Go with a more reliable producer at your WR2 spot.
