Fitz is still in his prime as far as wide receivers go and the Cardinals looked much better in the second half last season as they took to Bruce Arians' offense. This tier of wid receivers is very close for me and I'll be happy with any of them.
Tate is in a much better situation in Detroit than he was in Seattle, at least for fantasy upside. Lombardi brings a west coast style that should get Tate the ball often and allow him to make yards after the catch, which he excels at.
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
Like Reggie Wayne, Fitz was primarily an outside receiver. With age, Coach Bruce Arians moved the 33 year old Colts WR Reggie Wayne inside where he saw a rejuvenated 195 Targets while catching 106 balls for 1355 yards with the 2012 Colts. Bruce Arians wants to do the same with 30 year old Larry Fitzgerald in 2014. “Guys lose a step at age 30,” say Arians. “They accept it, they want to become better players, they say help me become a better player than when I was 26. This is how you do it,” explains Arians for moving Fitz around to for better matchups. Larry Fitzgerald is a great bet to surpass his rough 954 yard 2013 performance and will remain a double digit TD scorer for the Cards.
2013 was rock-solid for Tate, but we expect his success to exceed above and beyond that what he has produced to this point. Tate has never gone for 1,000 Receiving Yards in a season, but playing opposite of Calvin Johnson certainly has its benefits. Look for new OC Joe Lombardi to use Tate as New Orleans did Lance Moore, however the athleticism of Tate triumphs anything Moore brought to the table. Tate should see his overall numbers increase across the board along with Targets as his gun-slinging QB has no hesitance of letting it fly downfield early and often. Look for solid numbers all season from Golden Taint!
  
Derek Lofland

Fitzgerald bounced back last year with 10 touchdown receptions, but still had only 82 receptions and 954 yards. Until the Cardinals find a good quarterback, Fitzgerald is a fantasy WR2.
Golden Tate should have WR3 value as the second receiver in what has the potential to be an explosive offense.
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
Hasn't been pairing big TD and yardage totals the way he used to.
Has a chance to shine. Expect him to thrive playing opposite Megatron.
  
Tom Schriner
FFLockerRoom
After five straight 1,000-yard receiving seasons, Fitz has gone two straight seasons without breaking that plateau. The 30-year-old star laid out his 2014 goals in response to a question about his recent contract restructuring and whether the team can afford to keep him in 2015. Fitzgerald is entering a contract season and with the hopes of getting back to that 1,300 to 1,400-plus yard range. Fitzgerald has posted three 1,400- plus yard seasons (2005, 2007 and 2011). He caught a career-high 13 touchdowns in 2009 and is looking to get back to that level of production.
Coming off a career year where he caught 64 receptions for 898 yards and 5 scores, Tate's numbers have been suppressed by the Seahawks' run-heavy offense, but that won't be an issue in Detroit. With his run-after-catch skills we can expect to see Tate move all around in the Lions offense.
  
Sablich Brothers
The NY Times
Arians will deploy the aging star much like he did with Wayne. Better PPR pick.
Brings much-needed, sure-handed WR2 talent to Detroit.
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
He may find a new home in 2014, but even if he doesn't he finds a way to put up consistent fantasy numbers. A new home would be a huge upside for Fitzgeralds upside.
Stafford throws the ball a ton, Tate is a solid PPR selection.
  
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
Still the best receiver on the Cardinals but Floyd closing in fast, both capable of WR2 numbers
Tate should push for 1,000+ yards and 6-8 TD's
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
If he wasn't banged up for numerous games he would have been even better last year. Palmer brought him back to life. Expect a bigger 2014.
Overrated talent who doesn't belong being a #2 WR. Should post WR3 numbers in Detroit.
