I would say that this period of the NFL has some crazy top-end talent at the receiver position. So I’ve decided to compile an absolutely perfect and undebatable list of the best of the best. And yes you will probably disagree with most of this list, but I don’t care.
- Cooper Kupp
I mean I’m just gonna come out and say it. Cooper Kupp won the Triple Crown. That’s the end of the argument right? The man amassed just shy of 2,000 receiving yards, and 16 touchdowns on the season. So, I guess you could say he’s pretty good. One of my least favorite arguments against this guy is the idea that because he lines up in the slot he is somehow worse than the other receivers on this list lining up in the wideout positions. I don’t care if he lines up in the backfield man, he’s always open by at least twenty yards, Without fail. He’s the best receiver right now.
- Justin Jefferson
This guy paired with Dalvi Cook is the entire Vikings offense. Justin Jefferson is another player who is always wide open no matter where he’s lining up. Last season he caught just over 1600 yards and ten touchdowns. And this season he has shown no signs of slowing down, Jefferson is a beast, and he’s only gonna get better.
- Davante Adams
Y’all don’t need me to argue why Davante Adams is on this list. I’m sure what I need to prove to you is why he is so low. And to be honest, it’s not a slight against him. It’s just how good Justin Jefferson and Cooper Kupp are. Davante Adams is a receiver that can absolutely do it all. He can beat you with his speed. He can beat with his vertical. He can beat you with his quickness. I mean, with this list, it comes down to splitting hairs, and Davante just ended up in third.
- Stefon Diggs
Stefon Diggs really revitalized not only the Bills’ offense but Josh Allen’s Career. Josh Allen and the Bills went from a 6-10 team to a 10-6 team when Stefon Diggs came to town. He completely opens up the field for Josh to run riot all over an opposing team’s defense like the speedy tank of a QB he is. And it’s not just the Bills that he’s made better. Back in Minnesota Diggs was Jefferson before there even was a Justin Jefferson. There’s no way Stefon Diggs doesn’t make a top 5 list.
- Tyreek Hill
I mean, he’s the Cheetah. The dominance this man achieved with Patrick Mahomes simply cannot be understated. He’s had just barely under 7,000 receiving yards for his career with over 13 yards per catch, again, in his career. Those are some wild stats. His blistering speed is just too much for really any defender in the league, and he’s been proving it year in and year out. Hopefully Tua can keep up with him this season, he’s got plenty more football to play.
