Cardinals OC Harold Goodwin says that the Ted Ginn signing is going to help Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd: "Ted Ginn, speed. Great addition, and it's going to help the overall passing game a lot from a play-action standpoint and a drop-back standpoint. It's going to help Larry (Fitzgerald) and Michael (Floyd)."

Cardinals HC Bruce Arians changed the role of wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald last season, having him play inside and moving him around. Arians said Fitzgerald got more comfortable with it during the season and it helped to play inside where his size could be an advantage. Arians had done it previously in Pittsburgh with Hines Ward and in Indianapolis with Reggie Wayne.

A major factor in making the shift for Fitzgerald, Arians said, was the receiver’s age. Fitzgerald turned 30 in August.

“Guys lose a step at age 30,” Arians said. “It’s just natural. As hard as they train and everything, at 30 it’s just a different ballgame. They accept it, they want to become better players, they say help me become a better player than when I was 26. This is how you do it.”

Browns WR Josh Gordon received a personal invitation from Larry Fitzgerald to attend his annual pre-camp all-star training session in Minnesota, in which former stars such as Michael Irvin, Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders help current top players perfect their skills. The camp runs for about six weeks in the summer, and Pro Bowl-caliber players come and go.

"I'm definitely going to make the trip,'' said Gordon. "I talked to Larry and he personally invited me out. Michael invited me, Jerry invited me, so I've got to go. It's going to be fun. It will be in the summer time and help get ready for training camp and hopefully tear it up this season.''

Fantasy Impact:

It's great to hear that Gordon -- who has had off field issues in the past -- seems focused and committed to perfecting his craft. The sky is the limit.

Arians: Larry Fitzgerald expected to play
Wednesday, December 18, 2013, 10:28am

Kent Somers, Twitter - [Full Article]

Cardinals HC Bruce Arians says WR Larry Fitzgerald won't practice in Wednesday but expects him to play in Seattle.

Fantasy Impact:

It’s a tough matchup, but Fitzy is the #8 WR over the last four weeks, so he'd be difficult to bench.

Larry Fitzgerald passes baseline test

“Today I went in and saw an independent neurologist,” Cards WR Larry Fitzgerald said in a radio interview with Jim Gray. “He put me through a screening test, a baseline test, that I took in the spring time. They wanted to see if my scores were on the same level as my scores when I was fully functioning in the offseason. Those tests came back positive. I was right where I needed to be. Tomorrow I will see another neurologist to get another independent look.”

“At that point it’s just about how I feel going through the week. But right now I’m feeling good.”

Fantasy Impact:

Fitzgerald said he remembers watching the football bounce toward him and then being helped up by the team’s training staff, according to the story. The piece went on to say that Fitz was a “little out of it” and went through testing on the sidelines. He said he wanted to return to the game but the trainers said it would be in his best interest to sit the rest of the game out. His status is looking better than it did Sunday night and early Monday, but keep in mind it's a very tough matchup against the Seahawks on the road.

HC Bruce Arians on Cardinals postgame show QB Carson Palmer has a high ankle sprain, was able to play through it with a heavy tape job.

Fantasy Impact:

The Cards are banged up heading into a game with Seattle in Week 16. Larry Fitzgerald suffered a concussion, Michael Floyd was questionable leading up to Week 15 and now RB Andre Ellington has a hip injury that he says is fine. Palmer will be a risky play as anything other than an average QB2 this week in a tough matchup.

Monday, December 16, 2013, 9:51am - [Full Article]

Cards RB Andre Ellington was sidelined by a thigh injury, although he said the injury isn’t serious.

“Throughout the course of the game I took a few hits on it, but I’ll be fine,” Ellington said.

Fantasy Impact:

Ellington led the team in receiving and rushing yards in the win. He sat out OT, so it's worth monitoring for next week. The Cards play at Seattle in a tough mathcup in Week 16. Ellington saw some time at WR against the Titans and with Larry Fitzgerald not doing well after a concussion, Ellington could still be worth a play in Week 16, esp. in PPR leagues.

Beat: Larry Fitzgerald 'not OK'

Cards WR Larry Fitzgerald is not OK. He will be tested for concussion, didn't feel well after the game. He was out of it on the sideline after the hit.

Fantasy Impact:

Fitzgerald's dad tweeted Monday that his son is OK. It seems like it may have been quite a scare with Fitzgerald being "out of it." Fitz took a big hit on an onside kick which Fitzgerald fielded, and that is believed to be where he got hurt. We'll learn more later Monday, most likely, but he'll have to pass protocol in order to be ready for Week 16. It's a very tough matchup at Seattle but Fitz's status looks to be in some doubt right now.

HC Bruce Arians said he's leaning toward holding WR Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) out of Wednesday's practice four additional healing time.

Fantasy Impact:

Both Marshawn Lynch and Larry Fitzgerald are IN for Thursday Night Football. Lynch is a strong RB1 start, while Fitzgerald is a fringe WR2 at best given the tough matchup and hamstring injury. Still, he played through the injury in Week 6 and had a big day.
