I like Fitzgerald to rebound this year, but going on the road to play the Rams 8th ranked fantasy receiver defense means Fitzgerald will have a good week, but not a monster one.
 
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
Fitz disappointed a lot of faithful fantasy owners last season, only going for 798 receiving yards and 4 TDs. Its never a case of Fitz not outworking and not being more physically talented than everyone on the field its always the QB play. Is Carson Palmer the answer well see?
Tate is in a contract year in Seattle and will be the focal point in the Receiving Game. With Percy Harvin likely out for the year, look for Golden Tate to easily surpass his 45 reception / 688 receiving yard mark this year.

BOUNCE BACK PLAYER of the YEAR prediction! Owners should consider Fitzgerald a solid No. 2 Fantasy WR that we can expect to return to 80 reception/1,000 yard and 7 TD form that is worth drafting as early as Round 4 in the majority of all leagues.

What makes Carson Palmer great, he will throw the ball blindly into triple coverage if he trusts his WR. Carson does well with big WRs, and Larry Fitzgerald is the dentition of that. Remember when Mike Williams for USC was a TD Machine and being used in the same sentence as Larry Fitzgerald at the time they were both in College. Now we can see what Fitzgerald could do with that same type of QB. This is the first quality QB the Cardinals have had since Kurt Warner.
Tate is a great #3 WR, but his consistency will be on the low-end as the Seahawks are a team that blows other teams out. Which means he has to make his contributions earlier than later. Watch the situation on Percy Harvin develop with the Hip, could lead to Tate climbing this list.
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
The Rams have a top 10 defense, but Fitz is Fitz and Palmer won't be afraid to let him fight for the ball. I don't see him being out of my top 10 this season.
The Panthers pass defense is young and untested and probably not that great. They are extremely strong on the defensive line and at linebacker, but Wilson's ability to escape should give Tate some good openings.
  
Raju Byfield

Carson Palmer will be able to breathe new life into one of the leagues top two most talented wideouts
It shows depth at WR that Tate is ranked so low
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Rams corners can be tough so temper expectations a bit.
Does have some upside but CAR tends to play fairly decent against pass.
  
Taylor Smith
NFL Soup
Carson Palmer coming to the desert means a return to fantasy relevance for Fitz!
