Larry Fitzgerald held out of practice again, Week 3 fantasy status in question

Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

Larry Fitzgerald missed practice for the second day in a row. We break down the fantasy implications.

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald was held out practice on Thursday. It's the second straight day he has been unable to practice.

Fitzgerald has been dealing with a hamstring injury for the past two weeks. He played in Week 2, but was ineffective and left the game in the fourth quarter. The Cardinals are still expecting him to suit up against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, but he may end up missing the entire week of practice.

Fantasy impact: We should have a better picture of Fitzgerald's status when the injury reports come out on Friday. If he's able to at least get a limited session in, that would be an encouraging sign. Hamstring injuries tend to linger for weeks on end, so Fitzgerald's fantasy upside may be limited for the near future. It throws doubt into what would otherwise be a dream matchup against the Saints defense. Start Fitz this week, but keep your expectations in check.
