Larry Fitzgerald injury update: WR questionable for fantasy owners

The Cardinals wide receiver has a shot at playing in Week 16. We break down the fantasy implications.

USA TODAY Sports

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald (concussion) is listed as questionable and is tentatively expected to play in the teams Wee 16 game against the Seattle Seahawks. Fitzgerald still needs to pass the final test of the concussion protocol. He was limited in practice on Thursday and Friday and has a realistic chance at suiting up.

Fantasy Impact: Fitzgerald's season has gone about as well as one can reasonable expect considering all of the limited pieces of Arizona's offense. He has 73 receptions for  823 yards on the year and has found the end zone 10 times. While his 11.3 yards per catch isn't anything to write home about, he has managed to stay healthy until his concussion and has been a solid source of production for fantasy owners. He has only topped the 100 yard receiving mark once, but owners who drafted him as a WR2 don't have much else to complain about.

If Fitzgerald does get cleared in time for the game, he has another looming obstacle to overcome in shutdown corner back Richard Sherman. Seattle's secondary remains elite despite the departure of Brandon Browner and Fitzgerald could be in for a long day. He's a low-upside WR2.
