ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Larry Fitzgerald still has not made a decision about whether to return and play in 2019.
It would be Fitzgerald's 16th season if he does return. He'll gather his thoughts and contemplate returning to a Cardinals squad that will be under the lead of new coach Kliff Kingsbury and picking No. 1 overall in April's upcoming draft. Fitzgerald announced he was returning last season in mid-February, so it's likely we receive word of his status in the next couple of months. He's currently not under contract. Jan 12 - 12:26 PM

Larry Fitzgerald caught 4-of-9 targets for 36 yards and one touchdown in the Cardinals' Week 17 loss to the Seahawks.

Fitzgerald ended his 2018 season (and possibly his career) with a nice one-handed touchdown catch to bring his season touchdown total to six. Despite playing at age 35, Fitzgerald showed little signs of a physical decline, and he hasn't ruled out returning in 2019. The Cardinals don't have Fitzgerald under contract, but the team is open to him coming back if he wants to continue playing. After this year's 69-734-6 season, Fitzgerald is now top-three all-time in career receptions (1,303) and receiving yards (16,279). If this was it for Fitz, it was a fantastic career and his next stop would be in Canton, Ohio, but we are confident that Fitzgerald can contribute in 2019 if he wants.

Larry Fitzgerald secured six-of-nine targets for 53 yards while also throwing a 32-yard touchdown pass Sunday in the Cardinals’ Week 16 loss to the Rams.

Fitzgerald didn't do anything of note as a pass-catcher, though he did sling a 32-yard touchdown pass to a wide-open David Johnson on a second-quarter flea flicker. Surprisingly, that was Fitzgerald's first career passing touchdown on only his fourth attempt. It's possible that Sunday was the last home game of Fitzgerald's illustrious career, though the 35-year-old has yet to decide on his playing future. Fitzgerald will finish out his 15th and perhaps final NFL season next week at Seattle.

Larry Fitzgerald hasn't ruled out returning in 2019.

Fitzgerald's contract is up, but the Cardinals are open to re-signing him if he doesn't retire. He didn't show much decline in 2018 despite being held back by Josh Rosen's rookie struggles. 35-year-old Fitzgerald likely has a couple years left if he wants to return.

Larry Fitzgerald caught 7-of-8 targets for 82 yards in the Cardinals' Week 15 loss to the Falcons.

Cardinals coaches were kind enough to leave Fitzgerald in the game with Arizona down big, and he racked up garbage-time catches to finish with a solid fantasy line. A similar scenario could easily play out in Week 16 against the Rams. Fitz has lacked 2018 upside but does have 17 targets over the last two games. He's also on a mission to climb the NFL record books late in a lost season.

Larry Fitzgerald chipped in with five catches for 55 yards on nine targets Sunday in the Cardinals’ Week 14 loss to Detroit.

Fitzgerald goose-egged in the first half but came alive with a handful of catches during garbage time. He also etched his name in the record books, passing Jerry Rice for the most catches in NFL history with one team. Fitzgerald isn't much of a fantasy asset these days—a new coaching staff and rookie quarterback haven't helped matters—though he won't get a juicier fantasy matchup than the one that awaits him in Week 15 against the Falcons' Swiss-cheese secondary. If there was ever a bounce-back spot for Fitz, this is it.

Larry Fitzgerald caught 3-of-6 targets for 48 yards in the Cardinals' Week 13 upset of the Packers.

It was a quiet game for Fitzgerald, who finally made his mark on a highlight-reel fourth-quarter 32-yard catch that set up Zane Gonzalez's game-winning 44-yard field goal. Fitzgerald will be a better WR3 play in Week 14 against the Lions, who get smashed by slot receivers constantly.
Sun, Dec 2, 2018 06:11:00 PM

Larry Fitzgerald caught two passes for 30 yards and a touchdown in Week 12 against the Chargers.

They were his only two targets. Fitzgerald scored a 25-yard touchdown on the Cardinals opening drive and caught a five-yard pass on the final play of the game. After a slow start, he's now up to five touchdowns in the last five weeks. Fitzgerald will be a WR3 for Week 13 against the Packers.

Larry Fitzgerald caught 2-of-4 targets for 23 yards and two touchdowns in the Cardinals' Week 11 loss to the Raiders.

That's efficiency, though Fitz obviously deserved more looks. Rookie QB Josh Rosen could complete just nine passes against the Raiders' league-worst defense. Fitz's first score was delivered on a rope into the end zone. For the second, he inside-outed CB Rashaan Melvin. Fitz's usage had not been a recent concern. He should bounce back in the target department for Week 12 against the Chargers.
Sun, Nov 18, 2018 07:33:00 PM

Larry Fitzgerald caught 6-of-10 targets for 50 yards in Week 10 against Kansas City.

It's a step back after Fitzgerald had touchdowns the last two weeks. Fitzgerald led the team in targets, but the Cardinals' offense struggled to maintain drives with Josh Rosen facing constant pressures. Chad Williams is looking at a potential multi-game absence, so Fitzgerald's target share will have him in the WR3 mix against the Raiders in Week 11.
Sun, Nov 11, 2018 04:35:00 PM

Larry Fitzgerald hauled in 8-of-12 targets for a season-high 102 yards and one score in the Cardinals' Week 8 win over the 49ers.

Fitzgerald's targets, catches, and receiving yards were all season-highs in his first game under new OC Byron Leftwich. Prior to Sunday, Fitzgerald hadn't exceeded 40 receiving yards since Week 1. Josh Rosen attempted a season-high 40 passing attempts, too, instilling life into a formerly lifeless aerial attack. With Fitzgerald now the focus of an assumed-to-be developing offense, there's suddenly reason to hold onto him moving forward. Consider him a confident WR3 against the Chiefs when the Cardinals return from their bye in Week 10.

Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) was removed from the Week 8 injury report.

There was never doubt over his status. New Cardinals OC Byron Leftwich plans to get Fitzgerald more involved, but he's hard to trust as a FLEX with Josh Rosen tanking.
Fri, Oct 26, 2018 04:40:00 PM

New Cardinals OC Byron Leftwich wants to get Larry Fitzgerald more involved.

"The plays are still there in him," Leftwich said. "I don’t think he’s dead yet." Although it included just 79 yards, Fitzgerald did post his best two-game stretch before the Cardinals' post-Thursday Night Football mini bye. Leftwich replacing Mike McCoy is a classic "it could not get any worse" situation. Leftwich could end up reviving Fitz, but he's just a low-end WR4 for Week 8.

Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) returned to Cardinals practice on Thursday.

Fitz will be ready to rock for new OC Byron Leftwich's debut against the 49ers. Although he's shown some signs of life the past two weeks, Fitz remains a back-end WR4.
Thu, Oct 25, 2018 02:34:00 PM

Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) didn't practice Wednesday.

It's maintenance for Fitzgerald, who rarely practices early in the week. Fitzgerald is coming off his best game of the season and should benefit from the Cardinals firing OC McCoy. He's a low-end FLEX against a bottom-ten 49ers' secondary.
