    Larry Fitzgerald should”NOT” be on this list. His production is based on his quarterback carousel. When he had an amazing QB in Kurt Warner, he was amazing. Warner left and the carousel began. I am willing to bet that if you look at his targets, that you will find him to have caught more than 70% of passes thrown his way. Fitzgerald has amazing hands to catch anything in his area, but if his QB can’t get it to him then that’s more on the QB.
