Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald is in 'Prove it' mode

From 2007-11, Larry Fitzgerald @LarryFitzgerald averaged nearly 1,300 yards per season. He has cemented himself as one of the very best wide receivers in the game. Even though his yardage total plummeted to 798 last season, no one is diminishing Fitzgerald's greatness. But he told the Cardinals' official website that he has something to prove in 2013.
"I'm coming off the most disappointing season of my career and I'm in 'Prove it' mode," Fitzgerald said Tuesday.

Fantasy Analysis:

Whatever Larry needs to do to motivate himself. I like that he's really focused on putting 2012 behind him, but we understand why Fitzgerald had such a poor season, and it really had nothing to do with him. Carson Palmer isn't a top-20 quarterback in this league right now, but he is markedly better than Kevin Kolb, John Skelton, Ryan Lindley, Brian Hoyer and whomever else Fitzgerald has had to deal with at quarterback since Kurt Warner retired. He is a good fit in head coach Bruce Arians' down-the-field offense. Palmer brings stability the Cardinals haven't had at that position since 2009. If he stays healthy, Palmer should help Fitzgerald become a top-10 fantasy WR once again.
