Larry Fitzgerald doesn't practice on Wednesday, fantasy owners might be looking at a game-time decision

Larry Fitzgerald sat out of practice on Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. He was limited in practice for last week and played in Week 2 after being a game-time decision.

He caught just two ball for33 yards on five targets. He couldn't separate like he usually does and his hamstring issue may have affected him against a below-average Detroit pass D.  The Cardinals passing attack was a mess and no receiver had more than Kerry Taylor's 40 yards. Taylor was signed from the practice squad and made a nice first impression.

Michael Floyd only caught two of his seven targets and had a disappointing game.

Fantasy impact: Owners are going to want to see that their star receiver is going to suit up. That's especially true in such a favorable matchup against the Saints. Hopefully, Fitz will be back at practice on Thursday and the team is just allowing him to rest up. Floyd should be a nice option this week with or without Fitzgerald.
