Arizona Cardinals — Larry Fitzgerald
Facts are facts: Larry Fitzgerald managed only two top-20 fantasy weeks. Quarterback play was an obvious issue, helping Fitzgerald to only 6.6 yards per target, which was ninth-worst at the position and his worst mark in the category since 2012.
It’s possible Kliff Kingsbury’s modern offense can help Fitzgerald to a rebound season, but it’s hard to see a ton of upside for a 36-year-old receiver, especially after Arizona drafted three wide receivers. Fitzgerald is best-viewed as a flex option.
Atlanta Falcons — Calvin Ridley
A lot of people are going to be excited about Calvin Ridley entering his second year, given his 10 touchdown catches in his rookie year. But Ridley was limited to five end zone targets last year, and the 24-year-old is an obvious strong bet for touchdown regression this season.
It’s possible he sees an increase in targets in his second season, but it’s also possible he loses some targets to Mohamed Sanu and the emerging Austin Hooper. Consider him a fringe WR2 most leagues.
