2. Larry Fitzgerald, Cardinals For all the decline people keep talking about, Fitz still had a decent season in 2014. He just didn’t have the number he had earlier in his career. He enters his 12th season in the NFL. He is currently listed as a number one receiver but with John Brown and Michael Floyd we know he isn’t always the first option anymore. That’s what makes him such a great receiver. He’s become more of a possession receiver the last couple of seasons since coach Bruce Arians moved him to the slot. In 2014 Fitz was still able to grab 63 balls for 784 yards. He had two touchdowns and I think that’s the number people look at but he does so much more out on the field. He blocks and creates running routes for running backs and other receivers. I see him also improving on his 2014 numbers with quarterback Carson Palmer returning.
