Larry Fitzgerald injury update: Questionable but should be available for fantasy owners

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald fully participated in practice on Friday and is listed as questionable in Week 6. We break down the fantasy football implications.

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) was listed as a full participant in practice on Friday and is questionable against the 49ers in Week 6. Fitzgerald is dealing with another hamstring injury in a different spot, according to head coach Bruce Arians. He was limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: If Fitzgerald does suit up on Sunday, it is unlikely that he will be 100-percent healthy, making him a risky fantasy play in Week 6. If the star receiver does turn out to be a game time decision, fantasy owners need to have a Plan B in place as the Cardinals play the 49ers at 4:25 p.m.

Fitzgerald's most productive performance of the season (8/80/2) came in Week 1 against a weak St. Louis secondary. Since then, he hasn't put up more than 68 yards receiving and has only caught one touchdown. Not at full health and on the road against an elite San Francisco secondary, Fitzgerald is a low-end WR2/WR3 at best. Michael Floyd would be the primary beneficiary, but with Arizona's lack of a run game, shaky offensive line and questionable quarterback play, you can probably find a stronger WR4 play.
