Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald lining up all over formation

Larry Fitzgerald @LarryFitzgerald is a very smart player with a very high work ethic. Both his smarts and that work ethic are being put to the test in the Cardinals' new offense under head coach Bruce Arians. Besides learning a new offense and new routes for the first time since 2007, Fitzgerald is learning how to play three wide-receiver positions. He is lining up at both outside positions as well as in the slot.

Fantasy Analysis:

Fitzgerald admitted that he doesn't feel very comfortable right now, but again, his IQ and work ethic are so high, he will find his groove in time. Moving Fitzgerald around the formation should be to his benefit as he will not be facing the opponent's top cornerback constantly. It's similar to what Arians did with Reggie Wayne last year, and Wayne went on to catch more than 100 passes for more than 1,300 yards. Fitzgerald is already being drafted as a WR1, and with this development and the Cardinals' offseason upgrade at quarterback, an absolutely huge year could be in store.

I wish Larry Fitz would channel a little Keshawn and say "Just give me the damn ball". The lack of times his # was called last season has given people the false impression that Larry may be on the downside of his career. I think this is a huge bounce back year for the perennial All-Pro.
