In four straight games, the three-year pro is already inching toward a personal best for his most receiving yards in single season. And Hartline has not only looked good doing it, but he is starting to emerge as one of the most dominant receivers in this young season. He’s not the only budding star at the wide out, either.
Players like Danny Amendola of the St. Louis Rams, Ramses Barden of the New York Giants and even perhaps Andre Roberts of the Arizona Cardinals have also turned some heads that otherwise wouldn’t have been turned on their names alone.
