Fedora provides a disk image to format a USB device as installation boot media, and once the installer starts you can continue the installation from a network server (such as a Fedora mirror site). FWIW, you can also use PXE to boot any modern machine from a DHCP network server, and dispense with physical boot media altogether. The Installation Guide explains how to use these features:
