Larry Fitzgerald

What more is there to say about a guy who is a certain first-ballot hall of famer?  Now in his 15th season in the NFL, Fitz still has a couple of milestones within reach.

He is third on the all time on the career receptions and career receiving yards list.  His is 92 receptions away from taking over Tony Gonzalez at number two on the receptions list.

He is also only 390-yards away from taking over second place in receiving yards from Terrell Owens, who just entered the Hall of Fame this year.  Getting to number one on either list, Jerry Rice, would take at least two more seasons after this.

He still catches everything.  He is still the number one receiver.  He has caught 107 and 109 balls over the last two seasons.  His 107 in 2016 lead the NFL.

He can still flat out play.  Sure, he may have lost a bit of speed, although not much.  However if Fitz has another big year, it could lead to something special in January.
