The Arizona Cardinals have invested heavily in the wide receiver position over the last five seasons, and this may be the season they see it play out the way they have expected.
DeAndre Hopkins is one of the best players in the league, but now they have A.J. Green, Rondale Moore, Christian Kirk and maybe even Andy Isabella.
Fantasy Pros projected their 2021 stats and the Cardinals receivers seem like they are ready to make up for lost time.
Let’s take a look at their projections.
DeAndre Hopkins: 124 receptions 1,477 yards 8 touchdowns
A.J. Green: 57 receptions 702 yards 5 touchdowns
Ronale Moore: 48 receptions 622 yards 3 touchdowns
Christian Kirk: 51 receptions 604 yards 5 touchdowns
Chase Edmonds: 53 receptions 400 yards 4 touchdowns
Maxx Williams: 23 receptions 241 yards 2 touchdowns
If the Cardinals have four receivers with over 600 yards that is an impressive season from the passing game. While we would like to see more from Kirk and maybe even Green, if that is how Moore plays as a rookie, you have to be excited.
That means the top five players in receiving combine for: 333 receptions 3,805 yards and 25 touchdowns.
I think everyone would be happy with that production, considering you’d probably see about 300-500 yards from miscellaneous players the rest of the season.
