Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald will play Sunday against the Detroit Lions after officially being listed as active. Throughout the week, the team listed Fitzgerald as questionable while a hamstring limited him in practice, but it appears he's a go.
Fitzgerald had a huge Week 1 in St. Louis with eight catches for 80 yards and two TDs while Andre Roberts added eight catches for 97 yards. He hasn't missed a game since 2007 and remains one of the league's most durable players, so you don't usually hear these questions about the All-Pro wideout.
Fantasy impact: Michael Floyd has been used in two-wide sets and made some vast improvements from his rookie season, so he may be a bigger part of the offense with Fitz banged up. The Cardinals also signed Kerry Taylor to play wide receiver and he could play outside should the team not want to move Roberts out of his usual role in the slot.
Carson Palmer could also use Rashard Mendenhall out of the backfield to supplement a weakened Fitzgerald. As for the star wide receiver himself, he has to be in the lineup for fantasy owners with a weak Lions secondary looming.
