Fitz is clearly being looked for by Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray. Murray has already got the ball to Fitz 18 times, and with all the weapons at Murray’s disposal and having to spread the touches around, 18 is very good.
Fitz already has 2 touchdowns. He’s well on pace to beat his 6 touchdowns scored in each of the last 3 seasons. It is clear the Cardinals want to get the ball to Fitz.
Yes, Christian Kirk will get his catches too, but he’s not finding the end zone. Murray is looking for the end zone, especially inside the red zone and closer looks at the goal line.
Fitz had a beautiful touchdown catch in the season finale last season in Seattle. He has 12 lifetime touchdowns against the Seahawks.
Look for Fitz to get 8-12 catches on Sunday. He caught 8 against an arguably tougher Lions defense and has had 5 receptions each of the last two weeks.
