Where do Cardinals wide receivers DeAndre Hopkins and Larry Fitzgerald stand in projections for statistical achievements in 2020? Glad you asked.

FoxBet.com has released over/unders for the season and several Cardinals are prominently mentioned.

Hopkins, in fact, is tied for first with four other players for the highest over/under in touchdown passes at 9.5. That’s significant, not because of Hopkins’ obvious talent, but considering the quarterbacks throwing to the other four players.

Davante Adams, Aaron Rodgers; Mark Andrews, Lamar Jackson; Michael Thomas, Drew Brees and Tyreek Hill, Patrick Mahomes. That’s good company for Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray. The next two receivers at 8.5 – Chris Godwin and Mike Evans – will be catching balls from Tom Brady this season.

Hopkins had seven touchdown receptions with the Texans last season.

In receptions and yards, Hopkins isn’t as high. He’s tied for third with Travis Kelce (Carson Wentz) in receptions at 93.5. Hopkins had 104 in 2019. The two ahead of him are Thomas and Adams/

Hopkins, who had 1,165 yards last season, is tied for ninth in yards (1,149.5) with Kenny Golladay (Matthew Stafford). However, four players are tied for third with an over/under just 100 yards higher than Hopkins.

Larry Fitzgerald makes the list, but far down at 709.5 that is 42nd on the list

These are tough calls, but my sense is that Hopkins will be over in all three categories, and Fitzgerald will certainly have at least 710 yards. That’s an average of 44.4 yards per game. In the accompanying video analysis, the over/under used for Hopkins was 1,124.5, which makes for an even more solid belief that he will go over.

Here are the top 20 over/unders for pass-catchers, including tight ends:
