Fitzgerald snagged nine of 10 targets for 91 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 31-21 loss to the Texans.

EDGE Analysis

Fitzgerald celebrated his new contract extension with a 20-yard touchdown reception to put Arizona on the board in the second quarter, a nice back-shoulder fade from new quarterback Blaine Gabbert. It was Fitzgerald's first touchdown since Oct. 15 or, in Cardinals' terms, two quarterbacks ago. Arizona is limping along without starters such as David Johnson and Carson Palmer. With all this uncertainty, Fitzgerald is the lone constant. The veteran has caught at least five passes in five of his last six games.

Fitzgerald's decision to sign a one-year extension doesn't necessarily mean he'll play in 2018, ESPN.com's Josh Weinfuss reports.

EDGE Analysis

The one-year, $11 million deal, which includes a no-trade clause, simply ensures that Fitzgerald will stay in Arizona if he does indeed continue his career. It also hints that he plans to do so, but he could still opt for retirement in the offseason. As for the more immediate future, Sunday brings a road matchup against a Houston defense that has surrendered three straight 300-yard passing games. Blaine Gabbert will start at quarterback and may prove to be an upgrade from Drew Stanton (knee).

Fitzgerald and the Cardinals agreed to a one-year contract extension Friday, keeping the wideout in Arizona through the 2018 campaign, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. According to Mike Jurecki of Arizona Sports 98.7 FM, the deal includes a no-trade clause and is worth $11 million, the same salary figure that Fitzgerald received in 2016 and 2017.

EDGE Analysis

After Fitzgerald's yards-per-reception mark dipped to a career-worst 9.6 in 2016, the 34-year-old has bounced back a bit this season, hauling in 60 passes for 677 yards (11.3 average) and three touchdowns through nine games. Though the 10-time Pro Bowler is on the downside of his career, Fitzgerald is still quite clearly the Cardinals' No. 1 wideout, and would likely remain as much if he elects to play again in 2018. Fitzgerald had previously contemplated retirement last offseason, but his contract extension presumably indicates that he plans to play at least one more season.

Fitzgerald is closing in on an extension with the Cardinals through the 2018 season, Kent Somers of The Arizona Republic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fitzgerald's previous contract included an extension through the current campaign and a voidable year in 2018, the latter of which was intended to aid with management of the salary cap. Neither party has confirmed details of the contract, but the wide receiver will soon commit to a 15th season with the Cardinals.

Fitzgerald brought in 10 of 14 targets for 113 yards in Thursday's 22-16 loss to the Seahawks.

EDGE Analysis

The trusted veteran paced all receivers in receptions, receiving yardage and targets on the night, an unsurprising development given his sizable role in the Cardinals' offense irrespective of who's behind center. Fitzgerald now has five double-digit target games this season along with a trio of 100-yard and double-digit catch efforts. With 60 receptions through nine games, he remains on pace for a third straight 100-catch season. He'll look to continue building toward that goal against the Texans in Week 11.

Fitzgerald brought in five of nine targets for 70 yards in Sunday's 20-10 win over the 49ers.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran receiver didn't see too much of a downturn in production in Drew Stanton's first full game behind center. Fitzgerald's reception, receiving yardage and target totals were all team highs, and he managed at least 70 yards receiving for the fourth time in eight games. The 34-year-old figures to continue serving as the team's No. 1 receiver with Stanton helming the offense, even as his overall efficiency may take a hit due to the latter's occasional inaccuracy. Fitzgerald will look to continue producing against the Seahawks in Week 10.

Fitzgerald caught all three of his targets for 29 yards in Sunday's 33-0 loss to the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

Fitzgerald failed to put on a show in front of the London crowd at Twickenham Stadium, tying his season-low in receptions while coming up short of 30 yards for only the second time this year. That lack of production can be attributed to the loss of quarterback Carson Palmer, who broke his left arm in the second quarter. With Palmer likely out for the rest of the year, Drew Stanton should take over starting quarterback duties coming out of next week's bye. Don't be surprised to see a serious decline from Fitzgerald given the major downgrade at quarterback moving forward.

Fitzgerald brought in 10 of 11 targets for 138 yards and a touchdown while losing a fumble in Sunday's 38-33 win over the Buccaneers.

EDGE Analysis

Fitzgerald's numbers outpaced all receivers on the afternoon and represented his first 100-yard receiving effort since Week 3. The 34-year-old has now seen double-digit targets in four of seven contests as well, giving him one of the safest fantasy floors of any receiver. With 42 receptions through six games, the multi-time Pro Bowler remains well on pace for his third straight 100-catch campaign. He'll look to keep up his stellar production against the Rams in Week 7.

Fitzgerald snatched six of 10 targets for 51 yards in Sunday's 34-7 loss to the Eagles.

EDGE Analysis

Sunday continued a stretch of high volume paired with low production for the crafty veteran. Fitzgerald has now been targeted at least 10 times in three of five games, but he's also been held to under nine yards per catch in three contests, including back-to-back games. The absence of other consistent threats on Arizona's roster makes Fitzgerald worth starting in hopes that he goes off like he did against Dallas in Week 3, but it's probably a good idea to temper expectations at this point.

Fitzgerald caught four of seven targets for 32 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 18-15 overtime victory over the 49ers.

EDGE Analysis

Fitzgerald was held in check for the majority of Sunday's affair before springing free from the slot and coming down with a well-thrown jump ball in the end zone to secure the overtime victory. Last-second heroics aside, Fitzgerald was out-targeted and outgained by both Jaron Brown and Andre Ellington as the Cardinals continue to search for playmakers in life sans David Johnson (wrist). While Fitzgerald remains the Cardinals' most dependable offensive weapon, that status likely attracts the most attention from opposing secondaries and could make it difficult for the future Hall-of-Famer to post respectable fantasy scores on a weekly basis.
