Larry Fitzgerald has solid game, gearing up for major fantasy bounce back

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Larry Fitzgerald had a fine preseason performance against the Cowboys Saturday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald caught three passes for 44 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys. Fitzgerald played the entire first quarter and part of the second before making way for the second team, getting targeted four times. He found himself wide open in the end zone on one play, but Carson Palmer never looked his way.

Fitzgerald now has six catches for 65 yards in two preseason games.

Fantasy impact: Palmer was rather erratic, making just 7 of 15 passes, but he targeted Fitzgerald early and often for chunks of yards. The Cardinals moved him all over the field, even lining him up in the slot on occasion.

Fitzgerald remains one of the most gifted receivers in the league, and is set to make a huge bounce back after being victimized by poor quarterback play last year. He's almost a value pick at his third round ADP.
