In 2012 it all came crashing down for Fitzgerald, who finished with his worst full season as a pro and a 71 receptions/798 yards/4 touchdowns line. Horrible offensive line play, quarterback play, and play-calling were all to blame for his demise. The Cardinals have made a great attempt to fix that by improving their offensive line and quarterback, and adding Arians as their play caller. Arians plans to use Fitzgerald in all three wide receiver positions, a plan he executed with Reggie Wayne last season, leading to a 106/1,355/5 campaign. Fitzgerald has said he’s in “prove-it mode” this year, and Arians says he’s targeting “over 100 catches and 10-15 touchdowns” for Fitzgerald in 2013. While the TD numbers seem lofty, Fitzgerald should be able to get back to 100-plus catches and a lot of yards. Fitzgerald is a high-upside WR1 in my book because of the Cardinals’ new offense and Arians’ creative scheming.It’s very difficult to fully blame Larry Fitzgerald for his fantasy woes in 2012.
