Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald probable for Thursday

Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald @LarryFitzgerald was in so much pain due to another hamstring injury sustained during last week's loss in San Francisco that he "could barely bend over" after the game. But even on a short week, it seems like Fitzgerald will be healthy enough to play Thursday versus the Seahawks. He is officially listed as probable after putting in three limited practices from Monday through Wednesday.

Fantasy Analysis:

The opponent, the injury, the lack of practice; they all scream that bad things ahead for Fitzgerald. But remember that he was very questionable to even play against the 49ers, and he still recorded more than 100 yards with a score. If anything, Fitzgerald's designation on the injury report tells us that he is actually in better shape heading into this game.
Then there's the matchup. Richard Sherman @RSherman_25 is a tremendous player, and Fitzgerald might see him often. But Sherman won't follow Fitz when he moves into the slot. That's where the Pittsburgh product has an advantage. You know the risks of playing Fitzgerald this week, especially with how bad Carson Palmer has been for long stretches this season and the pressure he will undoubtedly face from that Seattle defense. But Fitzgerald is probably a low-end WR2 at worst for Week 7.
