Fitzgerald hasn’t missed a game in six straight seasons. He may have been slowed down last year with a hamstring injury, but he was still in uniform each and every Sunday.

Fitzgerald hauled in at least 80 balls in two of the last three seasons. He won't rack up anymore 100-catch seasons, but he should once again go over 80 grabs.

Receiving Yards – 968

Fitzgerald was once a guaranteed 1,200 yards, but age and a lack of constancy form the quarterback position has seriously stalled the team's passing game. Fitz hauled in 954 yards last season and will post a similar stat line in 2014.

Yards Per Catch - 11.8

Fitzgerald has averaged 13.4 yards per reception throughout his career, but that number has dropped in recent seasons. He has averaged under 12 yards per catch in the past two seasons.

Touchdowns – 9

Fitzgerald caught 10 touchdowns last year, but it was the first time he hauled in double-digit touchdowns since 2009. Fitz has become a product of the offense, and considering Arizona doesn’t score many touchdowns through the air anymore, the wideout will once again come in just under the 10-TD mark.
