Fitzgerald is our highest rated Wide Receiver and he is second all-time in Receiving Yards, behind only Jerry Rice. To meet the MPA in Touchdowns he only needs nine more, which he is more than capable of meeting but that second and third First Team All-Pro seems unlikely. That won’t matter as he is a Hall of Famer right now.
A.J. Green was injured in training camp, which will take him out of half of the season. This will definitely hurt as he can’t possibly make a First Team All-Pro this year, an accolade that would be huge for his cause. He is not likely to climb this year and could actually fall depending on when he returns.
A member of the 10,000 Yard Receiving Club, Jackson has to take the path of a compiler as he was close to the top tier of Wide Receivers, but never really was one. His last Pro Bowl was in 2013, but he still has something left in the tank in his return to the Eagles.
The attention that DeAndre Hopkins has received has not matched his gridiron production despite that he has been a First Team All-Pro the last two seasons, including a 1,572 Yard Season last year. He is definitely capable of duplicating his recent success.
While this seems early, Hill has been incredible on the field with 2 First Team All-Pro Selections, has been a Pro Bowl in all three of his seasons and has an AV/G over 0.2100 over the MPA. If his off-field issues continue, it could affect him in the future.
Thomas’ stats have been gradually regressing and he enters his first season with the New England Patriots on the IR. The 10,000 Yard mark is within his sight but that might be his last major milestone and it is no guarantee at this point.
Edelman is nowhere close to any MPA, nor is he likely to finish above one when his career is over, but what he does have is three Super Bowl rings and is second all-time in playoff receiving yards. That has generated a buzz around him as a possibility for Canton.
