Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald plays well in pain Sunday

Considering all of the reports on Sunday morning that started Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald @LarryFitzgerald would be limited versus the 49ers and may not even play because of his hamstring injury, Fitzgerald turned in a quite impressive performance. He caught six passes for 117 yards, including a 75-yard, catch-and-run touchdown during which Fitzgerald didn't look hampered at all as he raced past the Niners' defense.
However, Kent Somers of said that Fitzgerald was in so much discomfort, he "could barely bend over" after the game.

Fantasy Analysis:

Somers also said Fitzgerald is dealing with a right hamstring strain. He strained his left hamstring earlier in the season. Fitzgerald played well in Week 6, but he will likely be considered questionable at best in Week 7 as the Cardinals host the Seahawks on Thursday. He could be a risky start once again versus a solid defense. But as he showed Sunday, he's able to beat tough matchups at less than full strength as long as he's active. I figure he'll be in the WR2 range next week if he can play.
