    Larry Fitzgerald Will Return In 2018

    Thursday, February 15, 10:25 AM

    Cardinals coach Steve Wilks has announced that wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald will return for the 2018 season. This makes Fitzgerald a 15-year pro following a standout performance last year in what was largely a down season for wide receivers. Fitzgerald should be considered a low-end WR2 but could garner more attention if the Cardinals are able to adequately address the quarterback position in the offseason. Keep Fitzgerald on your radars as he should be a solid contributor for most fantasy teams.
