Fitzgerald had seven receptions (on 10 targets) for a season-high 160 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 24-20 win over Philadelphia.
It was easily Fitzgerald's best game of the season, and his second strong performance in the last three weeks. For a player that was never really known for his speed, and was said to have lost a step, he sure looked fast on his 80-yard touchdown, running away from several defenders as he sprinted towards the end zone. He'll have a tough matchup next week against the Cowboys, but things are trending up for the veteran wideout.

Fitzgerald corralled four passes (on five targets) for 21 yards during Sunday's win in Oakland.
Of the five passes directed at Fitzgerald, not one went beyond 10 yards, as he achieved his long of seven yards on two occasions. Because Carson Palmer threw deep on eight of 31 pass attempts, with five receivers getting in on the action, it's a bit surprising that Fitzgerald didn't garner any looks beyond the line the line of scrimmage. Fitzgerald's high usage (73 of the team's 76 offensive snaps Sunday) still warrants attention in fantasy circles, but Michael Floyd (groin) has easily surpassed the veteran in terms of relevance within the Cardinals' corps of wideouts.

Fitzgerald caught all six of the passes thrown his way for 98 yards and scored a touchdown in Sunday's 30-20 win over Washington.
Fitzgerald welcomed back Carson Palmer (shoulder), who had not played since a Week 1 win against San Diego. Fitzgerald's touchdown came from 24 yards away, as he dragged a defender the last 10 yards into the end zone. While Michael Floyd is emerging as an all-around wide receiver, Fitzgerald still has plenty of relevance, especially in PPR formats. The return of Palmer clearly didn't hurt either.

Fitzgerald hauled in three passes (on seven targets) for 57 yards during Sunday's loss in Denver.
Quarterback Drew Stanton connected with Fitzgerald on three of their first four attempts, including two receptions of at least 15 yards, which helped stake the Cardinals to field goals on their first two possessions. However, the remainder of the contest was clouded with ineffectiveness and injury, as Stanton sustained a concussion early in the third quarter. Thereafter, Fitzgerald picked up just two targets from third-stringer Logan Thomas, both of which fell incomplete. If neither Carson Palmer (shoulder) and Stanton can achieve active status next Sunday versus Washington, Fitzgerald's value is poised to take a massive hit with the potential for Thomas under center for four quarters.

Fitzgerald hauled in three balls (on seven targets) for 34 yards during Sunday's victory versus the 49ers.
Despite earning the most snaps (62-of-67) among the Cardinals' skill positions, according to FOX Sports 910 Phoenix, Fitzgerald ranked second in targets and third in receiving yards. Through three games, he appears to be little more than a decoy in order to create openings in the defense for Michael Floyd, Andre Ellington, and rookie wideout John Brown. Case in point: on Brown's second touchdown of the game, the safety bit on Fitzgerald on the outside, allowing Brown the necessary seam to get open near the end zone. Perhaps the knee issue that placed a question mark over his ability to play in Week 1 is still bothering Fitzgerald, but the best player in franchise history has posted just 10 receptions (on 21 targets) for 107 yards and no touchdowns through three contests.

Fitzgerald had six catches on 10 targets for 51 yards Sunday against the Giants.
Fitzgerald narrowly missed a touchdown in the first quarter, when the ruling on the field of a score was overturned after it was determined he did not break the plane before he was down. With starting quarterback Carson Palmer out with a shoulder injury, Fitzgerald got plenty of attention from backup Drew Stanton, who didn't throw more than six passes to any other receiver. Despite his excellent skill-level, Fitzgerald is in a tough spot from a fantasy perspective, as evidenced by his seven catches for 73 yards through two games this season. Up next is a tough matchup against the 49ers.

Fitzgerald caught only one of his four targets for 22 yards Monday.
A couple of them were in the end zone, but for the most part Carson Palmer checked down to his backs and looked for Michael Floyd. While Fitzgerald's no longer going to make many big plays, expect his volume to go up next week against the Giants.

Fitzgerald (knee) is active Monday versus the Chargers, Mark Dalton of the Cardinals' official site reports.
As expected, Fitzgerald is active after a week of full practice. He's searching for his first 1,000-yard campaign since 2011.

Fitzgerald (knee) is listed as probable for Monday's game against the Chargers, the Cardinals' official site reports.
We'll verify Fitzgerald's status Monday night, but after practicing fully all week, he looks good to go for the Cardinals' season opener.

Fitzgerald (knee) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports.
There's nothing to see here, as Fitzgerald has missed just four of a possible 160 games in his career, and none since 2007. Nonetheless, his status for the opener should be confirmed in the coming days.
