DeAndre Hopkins on pace to set new receptions record for Arizona Cardinals

Three games left in the 2020 NFL season for the Arizona Cardinals and nothing matters quite as much as making the playoffs.

One reason the Cardinals are in control of the seventh seed in the NFC is because of the season DeAndre Hopkins has had in year one of his tenure.

Hopkins has 94 receptions for 1,155 yards and five touchdowns this season through 13 games.

That is good enough for 14th all-time in receptions and 17th all-time in receiving yards in Cardinals history.

Again, that is with three games left to go.

On his current pace, Hopkins will finish with 116 receptions, 1,422 yards and six touchdowns on the season.

That would give Hopkins the record for catches in a season as Larry Fitzgerald holds the top two slots with 109 receptions in 2015 and 2017.

Meanwhile, those 1,422 yards would be good for the fifth most in team history. It seems unlikely that Hopkins would catch the single season leader, David Boston who had 1,598 yards in 2001, but he could potentially move into the top four, as Fitz is fourth with 1,431 yards.

The top four seasons in Cardinals history:

2001 - David Boston 1,598 yards
1997 - Rob Moore 1,584 yards
1984 - Roy Green 1,555 yards
2008 - Larry Fitzgerald 1,431 yards

Where does Hopkins end up?
