Best Wide Receivers of 2012-2013

The Top TenXW

1Calvin JohnsonCalvin Johnson Jr. is a retired American football wide receiver who played his entire career for the Detroit Lions of the National Football League.

Calvin Johnson got over 1900 yards. No one else got even close this year. He is extremely fast and can jump very high. He is the best NFL receiver that there is right now.

He is something out of a Video Game. That is why he is on the cover of Madden 13. No question the best Wide Receiver in the NFL.

Always in double coverage yet still makes catches. Megatron is king!

I think Calvin Johnson sucks butt he should be number one million

2Brandon MarshallBrandon Tyrone Marshall is an American football wide receiver for the New York Jets of the National Football League.

Come on Calvin Johnson in 1st this year the only teams Lions have beaten are teams with worse records then them - MattCutler226

He is a pretty good man, he eats poop too!

He had more receptions, receiving yards, and same amount of TD's as Green. He also caught over 40% of the Bears' passes. The last time a receiver has accomplished that was in 1960.

3Larry FitzgeraldLarry Darnell Fitzgerald Jr. is an American football wide receiver for the Arizona Cardinals of the National Football League.

Larry Fitzgerald deserves to be in the top 5! I'd love to see everyone else on this list do as well as he did with the quarterbacks he had! If only Arizona had a half decent quarterback, Larry would be at the top of this list and he'd be breaking records just like Johnson!

Larry Fitzgerald is the best! Sure he might have had a bad year but its hard having to switch quarterbacks all the time... Anyway larry is the best, he can catch, run, jump and do circus catches

4Andre JohnsonAndre Lamont Johnson is an American football wide receiver who is a free agent. He played college football at Miami, and was drafted by the Houston Texans third overall in the 2003 NFL Draft.

Had a career year at 31 after coming off of an injury. How many other receivers get better as they age.

5AJ Green

AJ is always covered but that's no problem. He is a great wide reicever. He is very fast and has great hands. He is good for long passes.

I think that A.J. is right up there with Megatron he could even be above him he is my favorite player and I also like Julio Jones but A.J. is the best. I am from Michigan and everyone loves Megatron.

6Dez BryantDesmond Demond "Dez" Bryant Sr. is an American football wide receiver for the Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League.

First it's the pro bowl now it's every list about wide receivers. Dez Bryant has become one of the most explosive targets in the NFL. He started the season poorly but ended the season 3rd in TD catches (behind two guys who aren't on the list) and top 5 in almost every other receiving stat. He has less dropped passes than Cruz, Marshall, and Megatron. He's 6th in yards, 6th in yards per game, 4th in catches 25+ yards, and he has the 3rd longest reception this season. He may not be the best yet but he's better than most people on this list and deserves some consideration.

Dez makes defenders look silly! He's big, strong and fast! He's and absolute BEAST!

Dez bryant is the best of them all

7Wes Welker

The best white receiver, no competition at all

8Steve SmithSteve Smith, Sr. is an American football wide receiver for the Baltimore Ravens of the National Football League.

Usually he'd just be an old fart but Cam Newton brought him back

I think he will be the best because he has cam newton and also steve smith is good too

9Julio JonesQuintorris Lopez "Julio" Jones is a current wide receiver who plays for the Atlanta Falcons of the National Football League.

Wow, Julio Jones had a monster day agains't my seahawks... We were the 1st ranked defense and he caught over 100 yards and even had a pick! Hands down best if he can do that to my hawks! - CHASE-WASHINGTON STATE...

Julio Jones What a sick wide receiver!

10Victor CruzVictor Michael Cruz is an American football wide receiver for the New York Giants of the National Football League.

Victor Cruz is the best in the would he can catch anything

The Contenders

11Anquan Boldin
12Michael CrabtreeMichael Alex Crabtree, Jr. is an American football wide receiver for the Oakland Raiders of the National Football League.

Crabtree may not look great statistically, but that's because the Niners throw the ball the second fewest. Despite that, Crabtree ecplisped 1,000 yards and 80 rececptions. Crabtree has one of the best hands in the NFL and amazing at running after the catch. He doesn't have top end speed, but he runs smooth routes and jukes out defenders in his way.

13Greg Jennings
14Roddy White

Roddy is better than Julio Jones.He can catch the ball better, is much stronger and probably faster

Best because he's too strong and fast. Strongest receiver in NFL by far.

15Hakeem Nicks

Victor Cruz may get the stardom but this guy's the real backbone of the Giants receiving corps

16Randy MossRandy Gene Moss is a former American football wide receiver who played 14 seasons in the National Football League.
17Reggie Wayne

Best route runner, great hands, durability, bad quarterback and still had almost a 1000 yards don't sleep on him now he got Andrew luck

18Seyi Ajirotutu
19Alshon JefferyAlshon Jeffery is an American football wide receiver for the Chicago Bears of the National Football League.
