Larry Fitzgerald listed as probable, will be available for fantasy owners

USA TODAY Sports

The Cardinals star wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald practice in full on Friday and will play on Sunday against the Falcons. We break down the fantasy implications.

Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) is probable and will play in the team's Week 8 game against the Atlanta Falcons. He practiced without limitations on Thursday and Friday. The star receiver has been dealing with a hamstring issue throughout the entire season. While he will not be 100 percent, Fitzgerald will continue to be the team's top receiving threat.

Fantasy Impact: Fitzgerald will once again play through his ongoing injury and he should continue to see plenty of targets from quarterback Carson Palmer. Although Fitzgerald does have a favorable match up in Atlanta, a hobbled receiver on a low-scoring with a declining quarterback is not exactly recipe for sure-fire fantasy production. The former first round pick has struggled to put up big numbers all season and is expected to continue to struggle with consistency.

Fitzgerald has only hit the 100 receiving mark once this season and has 32 receptions for 422 yards and four touchdowns. While he is still averaging a healthy 13.2 yards per catch, Palmer's ineffective play will limit his value. When one factors in the lack of a running game and porous offensive line play, Fitzgerald is a high-risk WR2 play in Week 8.
