NFL Receivers With the Best Hands


The Top Ten

1 Chris Carter

He had the best hands ever! He may not be the best WR ever, but he caught everything he was asked to.

If Chris Carter would have had Joe Montana and Steve Young throwing to him his whole career just imagine how good his numbers would have been

Go watch some film and see this man in action. Stuff legends are made of taking the one hand grab to a whole new level.

Look at his Ohio State Bowl game catch

3 Randy Moss Randy Moss Randy Gene Moss is a former American football wide receiver who played 14 seasons in the National Football League.

Randy Moss had the best hands I think I've ever seen, next to Chris and Larry. He's made circus catches since he came into the league and when he comes back he'll continue to make plays, wether the QB he has is good or not!

If he had hall of fame Qb his whole career he would have destroyed every record in the books. In 1 year with Brady at the end of his career they destroyed the league.

4 Marvin Harrison Marvin Harrison

Marvin was one of the smartest WR's the NFL has ever seen. He and Peyton had chemistry as if they were identical twins who lived together their' while lives.

5 Odell Beckham Jr. Odell Beckham Jr. Odell Beckham Jr. is a NFL wide receiver, playing for the New York Giants. He is most-known for making an incredible one-handed catch against the Dallas Cowboys. Beckham was drafted 12th overall to the New York Giants.

He should be at least 4 but really should be top 3 because he has best hands in the NFL right now. His hands are way better than Calvin, Larry, and Randy Moss. Whoever made this list doesn't know anything.

He makes one hand catches look easier than making cereal

Give him 5 years he will be at the top of this list easy

Should be 2 at least but 1 in my book

6 Larry Fitzgerald Larry Fitzgerald Larry Darnell Fitzgerald Jr. is an American football wide receiver for the Arizona Cardinals of the National Football League. Fitzgerald was drafted 3rd overall to the Arizona Cardinals in 2004, he is considered to be one of the best players of his position to never win a Super Bowl.

May not be the flashiest, may not have the most yards or most TDs, but at the end of the day, in a clutch situation, there is no receiver in the history of the NFL I would rather throw to when the game is on the line. Best pure hands, best coordination, and best person on and off the field that has ever stepped foot on a football field. Definition of a role model.

Larry "Legend" Fitzgerald has the best hand-eye coordination in the league in my opinion. You see a fumble or dropped ball from this beast every few years. He's the real deal!

Nobody, has better hands than Fitzgerald. Some receivers drop the same amount of passes to his career drops. He is the best ever, never drops the ball.

Larry did this his whole career, how do ODB get in front of him in them few years? That 1 catch

7 Calvin Johnson Calvin Johnson Calvin Johnson Jr. is a retired American football wide receiver who played his entire career for the Detroit Lions of the National Football League. He is often called the nickname ''Megatron'' for his rare combination of size, speed, and leaping ability on the field.

Calvin Johnson has great catching ability. The stats say it all!

You can throw it up anywhere and Calvin is there being Megatron catching the ball

Best receiver in the game now

Carters number one after that hard to say just hand but calvin is most talented hand down...or up!

8 Hines Ward

"Hands Ward"

9 Tony Gonzalez Tony Gonzalez Anthony David Gonzalez is a former American football tight end who played 17 seasons in the National Football League.

Best tight end ever. 2nd in many receiving records

10 Steve Largent Steve Largent Stephen Michael Largent is a retired American football player, enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and a former Republican politician, having served in the U.S. House of Representatives for Oklahoma, from 1994 until 2002.

Dude was slow, on a crappy team, and hardly had any YACs, but boy could he catch, thats all he had. A class act all the way.....

Have you even seen this mans highlights? Jerry Rice himself is quoted as saying that Largent had the best hands ever and Largent held every record there was including most touchdowns.

Largent had amazing ability to beat anyone with his routes, get open and catch everything thrown his way! Should be higher than 4!

Mr. Seahawk aka Yoda is an epic receiver. No yards after the catch you say? Were you possibly born after he retired? Steve and Mr. Stick um Jerry Rice should always be number 1 and 2 on any list. Steve Largent's revenge hit on the Broncos DB Mike Harden was epic and said a lot about Steve as a player and a human being. Thanks again to the Houston Oilers for the gift of a Hall of Famer. Now if we could only go back in time and get Seattle to draft Warren Moon.

The Contenders

11 Fred Biletnikoff

Super Bowl MVP yet he did not score a TD. That should say something about be one of the greatest all time receivers. He also played in the era when DBs could mug receivers all over the field.

Top collegiate receiver award called the Biletnikoff Award, made The Snake look better than he was, chain mover, slow, superstitious, Awesome Receiver!

Bar none the best hands in nfl and he didn't the stick em. Too bad he did not play for the cowboys

Are you kidding about the stickum? The stuff was all over his socks and forearms!

Best hands I've seen

12 Raymond Berry

Slow, contact lenses, one leg shorter than the other. Between the lines, he was the best. Best work ethic and determination of any receiver that I have had the pleasure of watching over the years. He played in a different era (1950s-1960s), but he had hands as good as anyone then or now.

Best consistent hands on a receiver only dropped two passes in his career NO GLOVES

13 Jarvis Landry Jarvis Landry Jarvis Charles Landry is an American football wide receiver for the Miami Dolphins of the National Football League. Landry was drafted in the 2nd round sixty third overall to the Miami Dolphins in 2014.

This guy is one of the toughest players in the NFL. Plus he can one hand a catch like no other.

Phenomenal talent, work ethic and hands.

This man can catch

He has the best ahnds right now in the NFL and his 2015 season showed that he can be a very dominant player

14 Sterling Sharpe

Short career so you've all forgotten.

15 Julio Jones Julio Jones Quintorris Lopez "Julio" Jones is a current wide receiver who plays for the Atlanta Falcons of the National Football League. Jones was selected sixth overall in 2011 to the Atlanta Falcons, and since made it to one Super Bowl.

Julio Jones Should actually be #1 he has the best hands he has speed and he can catch I don't know why yall didn't think of him smh

16 Kellen Winslow Sr.
17 Michael Crabtree Michael Crabtree Michael Alex Crabtree, Jr. is an American football wide receiver for the Oakland Raiders of the National Football League. V 2 Comments
18 Lynn Swann

Swann had the best hands ever and to date in the NFL point blank!

Number 2 behind Jerry Rice

Best pure WR in history. No gloves and no stickum. He had tremendous agility and awareness. No WR has come close to mirroring Swann

19 Reggie Wayne Reggie Wayne Reginald Wayne is a former American football wide receiver who spent his entire 14-year career with the Indianapolis Colts.

Reggie Wayne has the best hands in the league

Can't believe he's not on here already.

20 Eric Decker Eric Decker Eric Thomas Decker is an American football wide receiver for the New York Jets of the National Football League.
