Last year's receptions leader is among the safest plays in the draft and has outperformed Demaryius Thomas each of the past two seasons. He finished slow to close the season, but part of that was because he was being double covered so often with Brown injured.

Larry Fitzgerald returning for 2017

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald will return for the 2017 season. The NFL Insider added that Fitzgerald is "feeling 'back to normal' physically" and that his "desire to win and compete still burns," citing his reasons for returning to play out the final year of his contract.

Fantasy Impact

Fitzgerald will, in fact, play in 2017, after months of contemplating retirement. With a Fitzgerald return, it is believed that he and Cardinals signal caller, Carson Palmer, are "tied at the hip," meaning he is likely to play next season as well -- although Palmer's return is not yet official. Despite Fitzgerald's decision to play another year, it is a likely scenario that the Cardinals address the wide receiver position this offseason in the draft, or via free agency -- planning for the future.
