Top Ten Best NFL Wide Receivers of the 2015-2016 Season
Antonio Brown was the best receiver last season and he is the best receiver this season. He is the best route runner, has the best hands (most receptions in a two-year span with 265 and a three-year span with 375) and he is an impossible cover + he is a brilliant return specialist.
Calvin Johnson is to Randy Moss as Antonio Brown is to Jerry Rice. By far the best receiver of all time (excluding Jerry Rice). I don't know what it is but he just gets it done. If his quarterback hadn't gotten hurt we would be talking about a 2,200 plus yard season.
Antonio Brown is simply the best. The only other WRs that should have recieved votes as the best is Julio Jones, Odell Beckham JR and Deandre Hopkins. Votes for any other WR as being the best in the league is a joke. Only the players themselves, their family, friends and fans of that player must have voted for anyone outside of the 4 WRs I mentioned above.
Brown is no freaky athlete like Johnson, but he can catch anything close to him. Take his Week 1 catch versus the Patriots for example: he took what should've been a Butler interception, and made it a great reception. He's fast too.
FYI though, "America's REAL Team" person, you're a dipwad. It's the Patriots.
Odell Beckham Jr. is my favorite NFL player. He plays for the New York Giants. In my opinion he is one of the best wide receivers at this time. He is great at one handed catches and he is able to catch the ball with one hand almost every time. He has a 14.7 career average and 25 touchdowns. Odell Beckham Jr. In the regular season finale against the Philadelphia Eagles, Beckham had a career high 185 receiving yards, which was the most in a game by a rookie in franchise history. On December 14, 2014, Beckham became the first NFL rookie with at least 12 catches, 140 yards and three scores in a game racking up 143 receiving yards, 12 catches and three TD's.
The dude is flat-out unstoppable. Since he had those issues with Josh Norman back in his rookie season, he has gotten so much more intelligent with his ability to deal with aggressive DBs. He has crazy lateral quickness and excellent hands, especially since he has to adjust to most of the passes he receives because Eli Manning can't hit him in stride. If he had a more accurate QB and the Giants had an offensive line, Odell Beckham Jr. would have the best receiving stats in the entire league, year after year. Watch him explode in 2018 if the Giants draft Sam Darnold or Josh Rosen
Odell beckham Jr has made the greatest catch of all time in his rookie year. He holds records for catches,yards,and touchdowns in just 2 seasons. Just like Julio jones and Antonio brown he faces the the best dbs into the league and puts one a show. Also Antonio brown and Julio jones are looks as the best receivers but the both did not win rookie of the year but who did obj.
People who are saying he is overrated haven't watched him play. I'm not a Giants fan, but he has everything you could ask for in a receiver. Team him up with Shepherd and Cruz this year and he might break some records.
He's not just amazing on the field, but off the field too. Leading the league in recieving yards this monster of a player has been described by numerous articles as a teamplayer. He is always looking ahead to the future and is constantly helping the Atlanta Falcons and his teammates reach their potential. Its an obvious pick for me who is the best...
The only reason this is even a debate and he isn't number one is the fact he plays for Atlanta. Look at the tape this year, the catches, the stats, the performances against elite corners. Far more dominant than Brown or Beckham.
Julio has to be number one. 136 receptions. (tied with antonio brown). Doesn't have talents around him, unlike brown. He plays in a division with Josh Norman. Antonio Browns biggest challenger at CB in his division is Jimmy Smith.
Not tying to be mean but Julio Jones is way better than Odell Beckham Jr. Just because Odell Beckham made a few good catches/ plays doesn't mean he is better than Julio Jones.
What is everyone thinking? By far the best wide receiver in the NFL is Calvin Johnson. He can run a 40 in 4.35, jump 40+ inches, is 6-5, owns the record for the most receiving yards in a season in NFL history (with a hand injury), and catches anything thrown at him. In college, he made a catch better than Odell Beckham Jr. Too. Look it up. Sure he's almost 30, but if you watch him play, you can't tell. He can grab just about anything and has the potential to bring in 2,500 yards. That is if he were thrown to basically every play like some of these guys. The only reason he hasn't had had more yards this year is because the lions haven't gotten him the ball on deep plays enough. Some many great plays that it is unbelievable that he is not #1.
Madden create a player. Best physical specimen ever at the position. Best receiver for many years, would probably be if healthy
Definitely one of the best of all time. Megatron is the #1 receiver now and a top 10 of all time.
One of the best wide receivers of all time deserves to be number two. Antonio Brown is the best, but Calvin is way better than OBJ
No matter who throws the ball he will cath it no matter what hopkins should of been top 10 instead off odell the diva!
What number 4 more like number 2! Way better than those two Julio Jones and Odell Beckham.
DeAndre Hopkins is a top 3 wide receiver along with Antonio Brown and Julio Jones.
Deandre to me shouldn't even be in the top 5 for me I would put him at #9 Maybe even #10!
I think AJ Green is underrated and people don't like hime because he's on the bengals. and he also has the most bare minimum QB in the NFL I give AJ more credit than AB because he has good franchise QB so does Odell and Julio. And I'm gonna leave Deandre outta it until he gets an eliagble QB. AJ belomgs in top three. I think it should go
if AJ doesn't perform the way he did last year I would say he's number 4 being julio 1st AB 2nd Odell 3rd and Nuk 5th
The best WR in the league. 5 straight seasons of 1000 yards or more. He is crazy athletic and seems to make catches in impossible ways. He is that damn good!
Top 3: check the stats he's being balling since his rookie year, and that's with a qb with a weak arm. No particular order my top 3 AJ, Julio, AB
In my opinion A.J is way better the Odell and Hopkins he should be number 3 on this list
3rd in Fantasy this year! How is he not top 3! Most under-rated receiver of all time. Imagine the stats with a decent QB! He has played with Orton, Henne, Moore, Cutler and Fitzpatrick! Put's up 1300+ yards and 10+ touchdowns with all of them! Julio, Antonio, Odell, Hopkins etc. all have Elite QB or are the only decent receiver on the team so they get way too many targets. Brandon is unquestioned top 3, maybe #1 receiver in NFL.
He is really underrated and a beast. Imagine the damage he would do if he had a good quarterback.
Having a pretty solid year with fitzpatrick under QB.
Future HOF. 1500 yards and 14 td's gets you 25 on list?... come on now l, top 5-10 every years for the last bunch of years
This guy is a top 5 receiver. He not only racks up yards, but has a gift for getting into the end zone.
This guy is top 10 talent no idea how he's this low. Maybe top 5 in a year
Stat wise top 5 this year on a team too. Only his second season too
14 touchdowns and 1400 yards. How is he not top 5?
He is the reason the packers have victory, he is the bomb, he is the weapon of mass destruction on he team am I right!?!
He is the catcher and allstar touchdown man
Has dedication and strength to show of his skills he is legit!
Hope he comes back fully from the knee injury, looking forward to seeing how he competes this year.
I liked how he jumped over all the players and smacked a body slam touch with his muscles!
When he catches the ball, he is just plain dangerous. One of the best in yards after the catch, and showed some magic in a very dull Denver offense. A top 3 receiver for sure.
Demaryius Thomas is simply better than Brandon Marshall and Aj Green because of his one handed catch against the chiefs.
He is better then BMarshall. He will break away from everyone next year!
No you have it wrong
This guy will catch pretty much anything thrown at him. I think he's got a much better catch rating than Beckham. He should be in the top 5.
He will catch anything and run with the ball. Have you seen him block he is one of the only wide receivers that can hold a block.
So much to say about Larry the legend, he's the best wide receiver to ever live but it just wasn't showing
For a few years do to crappy quarterbacks like Kevin kolb, and Skelton.
How is Jordy Nelson, who didn't even play this year, get ahead this beast. Why are Odell and Allen Robinson ahead of him too.
He is coming off a great second half of last year and the Chiefs look like they will continue to build their passing game.
His the reason the WR no TD streak ended they found their #1 weapon on offense.
Because he is home team
How is he above A.J.?
The injuries are killing em to back back out there.
So underrated! He's among the top 10
Amazing but injured
Are you kidding me
At first he wasn't looking good now Winston throws to him a ton.
#34? Seriously? Tied for 7th with 32 catches and 7th in yards with 449. Ummm, okay.
Many pro bowls to come
Why so low on the list?
He has the skills. Just skeptical of the QB that has to get him the ball.
His he has up and downs but in the end has upside.
Should be so much higher
Again how so low on list
Hasn't really shown up most of the season can he turn it around.
T.y. Hilton is a aggressive wide receiver he fights for the ball he's definitely in top ten good pick @TheTopTens.com
He could be 5 or 6
Amari Cooper can line up any where. He can beat one on one coverage he is really good at catching running and getting past defenders. He can make ay kind of catch. He is fast. This is why I think Amari Cooper should be one of the top 10 receivers in the NFL right now.
Great Wr Talent Much Potential and A Great nack for RAC Good for years to come!
Monster on field. 2017 coming
Amazing rookie year
Doug Baldwin is an extremely underrated excellent wide receiver who, besides a dominant Seattle running game, has been the offense powerhouse and second part of the dynamic duo between him and Russell Wilson.
He can make plays and it looks like the Seahawks finally started to put a passing game together when all the running backs went down. I hope that continues this year.
Recorded ONE drop the entire 2015/16 season. Do I have to say more?
Most underrated receiver in the NFL.
Doing slightly better but is having injury prone problems.
One of the best in the making. Bad qb again or stats would be even better
He should be at the very bottom. #trash
He is the bomb
Desean Jackson is the best WR ever.Because he always makes long passes and when he played Eagles Kirk cousins through that 80 yard pass to him and he caught it and ran to the touchdown like a boss!
Lost his touch, poor guy...
This doodle my homey
Come back to Philly!
Not having as good of a year he had last year.
He was injured
Not as physically talented as some but the guy does it all and is tough as nails
I agree dude he should definitely be top 20. Ahead of Wallace go vikes but Diggs is better.
A Very Surprising Young Rookie with a lot of potential.
He should be top 20
Can you dig it!
Having a bounce back year.
He should be in the best 10. Very fast and agile man one of the best in the office.
At first he didn't do so well now his turning it around.
You think Cam Newton is MVP right now? Wait till this guy comes back...
Out for the year until next year.
