The Cardinals wide receiver is recovering from a concussion this week did not practice on Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald (concussion) will not practice on Wednesday, according to report by Kent Somers of AZ Central. Coach Bruce Arians still expects Fitzgerald to play against the Seahawks in Week 16.

Fantasy Impact: Fitzgerald suffered his concussion fielding an onside kick in last week's win over the Tennessee Titans. For now, he's still going through the NFL's concussion protocol but is expected pass the testing.

It's been a solid year for Fitzgerald. He has seldom eclipsed the 100-yard receiving mark this season but he's been targeted heavily by quarterback Carson Palmer and he scores touchdowns consistently.

Fitzgerald will no doubt be in tough against the Seawhawks this Sunday, especially because the game is in Seattle. He'll draw cornerback Richard Sherman in coverage without a doubt.

That said, the game means more to the Cardinals than it does the Seahawks in terms of playoff implications, so fantasy owners should still have Fitzgerald in the lineup.
