Larry Fitzgerald injury update: Fantasy owners looking for another big week

Dilip Vishwanat

Larry Fitzgerald is on the injury report for Week 1 with a hamstring. We break down the fantasy implications.

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) is listed as questionable for his team's game against the Detroit Lions on Sunday. Fitzgerald was limited in practice all week and could be a game-time decision.

Fitzgerald is one of the most durable players in the NFL and hasn't missed a game since 2007. He ended up on the same page with Carson Palmer quickly in their Week 1 matchup, reeling in eight balls for 80 catches and two TDs after having a quiet year last year with the Cardinals' horrific QB play last season.

Fantasy impact: The Cardinals moved the ball very well in the first game. As long as Fitz is active, he has to be in your lineup. The problem, though, is that the Cardinals play in a late game.

There is a good chance that he's going to play, but Fitzgerald's fantasy owners are going to want to make sure they have a backup plan in place for the late Sunday games or Monday  Night Football. Michael Floyd and Andre Roberts would benefit with Fitz at less than 100 percent.
