Fitzgerald reeled in five of seven passes for 43 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 44-6 victory in Los Angeles.

EDGE Analysis

As Fitzgerald wraps up his 13th professional season, he was extending personal records on a weekly basis and setting the occasional NFL record. Sunday was no different, as his fifth and final catch of the day was a five-yard TD strike from Carson Palmer, ensuring a league-leading 107 catches for the campaign and becoming the first player the top the NFL in receptions 11 yards apart (2005 and 2016). While Fitzgerald is under contract for another year, he intends to take a wait-and-see approach with his future. If he's indeed laced up the cleats for the last time, he proved that he went out in tip-top shape, hauling in 71.3 percent of the passes thrown his way for 1,023 yards and six scores.

Fitzgerald hauled in all four passes for 31 yards during Saturday's 34-31 victory in Seattle.

EDGE Analysis

Entering Week 16 as the NFL's leader in receptions, Fitzgerald again put up an uninspiring line, at least in the fantasy realm, but matching his season-low target count didn't help matters. Perhaps his primary contribution to the game was an eight-yard reception with 27 seconds remaining to transform a potential 51-yard field goal to a more manageable 43-yarder, which Chandler Catanzaro nailed through the uprights as time expired. With 14 receptions (on 22 targets) for 100 yards over the last three weeks, Fitzgerald's 13th NFL season isn't ending on a high note. However, after notching 100 catches for the fourth time in his career Saturday, he sits just 20 yards shy of his eighth 1,000-yard campaign.

Fitzgerald posted a team-leading seven receptions for 57 yards during Sunday's 48-41 loss to the Saints.

EDGE Analysis

In a game featuring just three punts among 22 possessions, Fitzgerald's second contribution was a lost fumble that resulted in a Saints touchdown drive, wiping away the Cardinals' sole lead (7-3) of Week 15. The foible aside, he received nine targets but actually corralled seven of them, unlike last Sunday, when he recorded a season-low three catches. With 98 on the season, he boasts the top mark in the NFL, but more impressively, he has exactly one more reception through 200 career games than the inimitable Jerry Rice (1,116 versus 1,115). Fitzgerald will look forward to Saturday's divisional matchup in Seattle.

Fitzgerald was held to season lows in catches (three) and receiving yards (12) during Sunday's 26-23 defeat at Miami.

EDGE Analysis

Prior to Sunday, Fitzgerald had managed to accrue at least 49 yards through the air in the first 12 games of the season, yet his 12 yards represented the second-most among Cardinals wide receivers (Michael Floyd recorded 18 yards). Making matters worse, Fitzgerald and company found difficulty contending with a Dolphins secondary one week removed from getting lit up by the Ravens to the tune of 386 yards and four touchdowns. In any case, owners can consider these happenings an anomaly, as the Cardinals prepare to face the Saints' 29th-ranked pass defense in Week 15.

Fitzgerald caught 10 of 11 targets for 78 yards in Sunday's 31-23 win over Washington.

EDGE Analysis

The beat goes on for Fitzgerald, who is tied with Antonio Brown for the league lead with 88 receptions. During Sunday's game, Fitzgerald passed Marvin Harrison for third on the all-time reception list with 1,106 career catches. Serving as Carson Palmer's security blanket, there's no reason to think Fitzgerald will cool off, especially in PPR leagues, next week against Miami.

Fitzgerald corralled all four passes for 53 yards during Sunday's defeat in Atlanta.

EDGE Analysis

Entering the contest, Fitzgerald's average line was 7.4 catches (on 10.6 targets) for 74.9 yards and 0.5 touchdowns, meaning Sunday's output is merely the baseline for the wideout at this point in his career. In fact, the four targets were his fewest since Week 17 of the 2014 season, a span of 29 games (including playoffs). Therefore, Fitzgerald is a great bet to get back in the act next Sunday against a Redskins defense that has given up 13.5 YPC to wide receivers in the current campaign.

Fitzgerald (knee/ankle) snatched six of seven targets for 63 yards in Sunday's loss to Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

Fitzgerald's exceedingly consistent season continues, with at least five catches in every game thus far this season. Fantasy owners would surely like to see more of those snags converted into touchdowns. After scoring thrice in the first two games in the season and five times over the season's first five weeks, Fitzgerald has now been held scoreless in five consecutive games. Hope seems to be around the corner, however, as Fitzgerald has been targeted in the red zone eight times during that span, including twice on Sunday.

Fitzgerald (knee/ankle) was a full practice participant Thursday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

In Week 10, Fitzgerald managed his first 100-yard performance of the season, despite leaving the contest just before halftime due to a hard fall on his neck. Upon completion of the contest, he noted that his knee was sore, and an MRI was ordered up. Because he's embedded in his 13th NFL season, his absence Wednesday wasn't unforeseen, as long as he didn't string together DNPs this week. Indeed, Fitzgerald allayed any fears about his upcoming availability with Thursday's uninhibited session, but a knee brace will likely be a part of his armor for the short term on game days.

Fitzgerald returned to Thursday's practice with a brace on his right knee, Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Nary a professional football player leaves a game without some type of ding, but Fitzgerald's status after Sunday's win against the 49ers was especially worrisome due to the MRI ordered up on his right knee. His absence from Wednesday's practice wasn't a shock, as the veteran is typically limited in the first session of a given week. Back in action Thursday, he'll likely be contained to individual drills in order to counter a potential setback -- as evidenced by the knee brace -- but the injury report will signal how much Fitzgerald was able to handle.

Fitzgerald (knee/ankle) didn't practice Wednesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Everyone from Fitzgerald to head coach Bruce Arians has cited a sore knee as the source of the wide receiver's current woes. However, an ankle concern is also a part of the picture, further clouding Fitzgerald's ability to practice this week. Working in his favor for active status on game day, though, is an iron-man mindset, as he's missed only six contests during 12-plus years as a professional.
