Best NFL Wide Receivers Going Into the 2018 Season

PackFan2005
Wide receiver is a valued position in the NFL, especially in our modern pass-heavy league. Some teams have the best ones, others don’t. Here, we’re looking at the top ten best NFL wide receivers going into the 2018 NFL season.

The Top Ten

1 Antonio Brown Antonio Brown Antonio Brown is an American football wide receiver and punt returner for the Pittsburgh Steelers of the National Football League. He is often regarded as one of the best Wide Receivers in today's game in the NFL. Brown was selected 195th overall to the Pittsburgh Steelers in the sixth round.

He is 5 10' he was drafted in the 6th round of the draft 195th pick.
He has the most receiving yards and catches in a 5 year span. DeAndre and Julio are good but they are both above 6 1' He is the most clutch wide reciever ever. Think about this

He is legit and my favorite that's y he's my #1 B-)

Times are a-changing in Pittsburgh. Ben Roethlisberger is on the verge on retirement, Ju-Ju Smith Schuster threatens to become a big target, and Le'Veon Bell's days seem to be numbered, but Antonio Brown remains a elite WR1. And it's not even a discussion. Although DeAndre Hopkins woke up from hibernation, Julio Jones and AJ Green remain solid WR1 options, and, of course, Odell Beckham Jr. is coming back from injury, Brown still reigns supreme. Although there is a chance for regression, with Smith-Schuster expected to hog a large share of targets and Le'Veon Bell shooting for a 1,000/1,000 season, Brown is still heavily expected to perform at an elite level down the line. Why? Brown brings out the best of people, and if he can continue to help out Roethlisberger down the line, he will be receiving king once again.

The all-pro has dominated for years, and if injury doesn’t strike him down in 2018, then he’ll find himself in another pro bowl and possibly with an MVP award. - PackFan2005

2 DeAndre Hopkins DeAndre Hopkins DeAndre Rashaun Hopkins, also known as "Nuk," is an American football wide receiver for the Houston Texans of the National Football League. Hopkins was drafted 27th overall to the Houston Texans in 2013.

The Texans are loaded this year, and Hopkins is a key gear in Houston’s offense. He was elite even with Tom Savage and T.J. Yates as his quarterbacks last season, so imagine what he’ll do with DeShaun Watson back from a torn ACL. - PackFan2005

3 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.

Should be #1 - AliciaMae

His touchdown rates are low, but he’s still a force on the field. He’s posted 1,000 yard seasons for four straight seasons, and can continue that trend in 2018, pending something doesn’t go wrong. - PackFan2005

4 A. J. Green A. J. Green Adriel Jeremiah Green also known by many being called A.J Green to shorten his first name. He was drafted 4th overall in 2011 draft by the Cincinnati Bengals.

Green is a really good Wide Reciever. It sucks that he doesn’t get recognized because the Bengals suck - KingSlayer93316

It is quite disappointing that Green has played his whole career in modest Cincinnati. - PackFan2005

He’s played for the Bengals his whole career, yet he continues to be dominant. Only issue is that Green himself can’t propel a struggling team to the playoffs. - PackFan2005

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.

Coming back from an ankle injury, Beckham needs to contribute to making the Giants better than 2017. I for one think he can. - PackFan2005

6 Keenan Allen Keenan Allen Keenan Alexander Allen is an American football wide receiver for the San Diego Chargers of the National Football League.

Allen will most likely remain a favorite target for Philip Rivers, after tight end Hunter Henry went down with a torn ACL. - PackFan2005

7 Michael Thomas Michael Thomas

This guy was a beast

Should be higher

8 T. Y. Hilton T. Y. Hilton Eugene Marquis commonly known in the NFL as ''T.Y Hilton'' Is an American wide receiver for the Indianapolis Colts. Hilton was drafted in the 3rd round ninety two overall to the Colts in 2012.
9 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.

Honestly, I actually expect the future hall of famer’s production to drop off a cliff in 2018. A near talentless offense headed by a journeyman quarterback. And his age is an issue, but he’ll still have a fairly productive season. - PackFan2005

10 Tyreek Hill Tyreek Hill

That picture though (the one with the gold teeth) - KingSlayer93316

Hill was one of Alex Smith’s Favorite targets in 2017, and he was explosive. Now with Patrick Mahomes as the Chiefs passer, can Tyreek Hill continue to put up points? - PackFan2005

The Contenders

11 Doug Baldwin Doug Baldwin Douglas Dewayne Baldwin Jr. is an American football wide receiver for the Seattle Seahawks of the National Football League.
12 Stefon Diggs Stefon Diggs Stefon Diggs is an American football wide receiver for the Minnesota Vikings of the National Football League. Diggs was drafted in the fifth round one hundred and forty sixth overall to the Minnesota Vikings in 2015.

Fans adored him suddenly after the Minneapolis Miracle, but even before that he was a good receiver. With a better quarterback, expect him to produce more in 2018. - PackFan2005

Diggs isn't the best one, but he sure is really underrated I believe he should be number 6 or number 7 - 2storm

13 Davante Adams Davante Adams Davante Lavell Adams is an American football wide receiver for the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League.

In an offense with Brett Hundley as the starter in 2017, Adams still played very well. Not to mention suffering two concussions. He’s Green Bay’s new number one wide receiver, and he’s expected to live up to his 2018 hype. - PackFan2005

14 Julian Edelman Julian Edelman Julian Francis Edelman is an American football wide receiver for the New England Patriots of the National Football League. ...read more.
15 Adam Thielen Adam Thielen

16 Mike Evans Mike Evans Michael Lynn Evans is an American football wide receiver for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers of the National Football League. Evans was drafted 7th overall to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2014.
17 ArDarius Stewart ArDarius Stewart

Hmm... we must have a visitor Jets fan among us having the whole receiving core pretty much on the list lol. - htoutlaws2012

Unless you're the Eagles and you have a quality depth at that position, I highly doubt they'll have at best maybe 2 quality receivers if lucky. - htoutlaws2012

18 Golden Tate Golden Tate Golden Tate III is an American football wide receiver and punt returner for the Detroit Lions of the National Football League.
19 Brandin Cooks Brandin Cooks Brandin Cooks is an American football wide receiver and return specialist for the Los Angeles Rams of the National Football League.
