Larry Fitzgerald believes fantasy football owners should not draft him high for their 2011 teams.
“I don’t know why you would take me next season,” Fitzgerald said before heading a Super Bowl party in Grapevine, Texas. “I have a couple things I need to straighten out before anybody takes me too high in the draft. Losing Kurt Warner hurt me a lot.”
Recently, Larry Fitzgerald made a list of quarterbacks he wants to see the Arizona Cardinals bring in to throw him the ball in 2011. The team asked for his input and he gave his top two choices as Kevin Kolb and Marc Bulger.
Kevin Kolb is the backup at Philadelphia behind Michael Vick but the Eagles have been leery about trading him. Kolb said he wants to start next year but Andy Reid seems to be set on keeping him in Philadelphia as the backup.
Marc Bulger ironically was the backup quarterback behind Kurt Warner at St. Louis. Bulger was unable to keep St. Louis in the title hunt thanks in large part to a disintegrating offensive line over the years. Marc Bulger played for Baltimore as a backup in 2010 and, as a free agent, might be the cheapest choice for Arizona.
If signing Marc Bulger will keep Larry Fitzgerald happy, he might be worth the money. He can’t be any worst than Derek Anderson, Max Hall and John Skelton.
Larry Fitzgerald has been one of the elite fantasy football wide receivers since he broke into the league. In his second year in the NFL, Fitzgerald eclipsed 100 receptions and 1,400 yards with 10 touchdowns.
Larry Fitzgerald still had a decent season in 2010, despite the quarterback carousel. Fitzgerald ended up with 90 receptions for 1,127 yards but his touchdown numbers dropped to six. Larry Fitzgerald ranked sixth in the league in receptions and eighth in yards. Those numbers are still good enough to be a first team receiver but look more like an early mid round pick.
If Larry Fitzgerald believes his numbers will drop in 2011, he might not be worth drafting before the eighth round of most standard fantasy football drafts and is no longer a guaranteed keeper in fantasy football keeper leagues.
Keep a close eye on what Arizona does in regard to the quarterback situation before you begin to plan your 2011 fantasy football strategies.
