Top Ten Best NFL Wide Receivers of the 2015-2016 Seasonhtoutlaws2012
The Top Ten
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.
Even in double coverage in any game Antonio came up with the ball and the yardage. One of the greatest receivers of the modern football Era
Antonio Brown and Julio Jones are by far the best receivers currently in the NFL. It upsets me to see Odell at a higher ranking than these two beasts. They are bothe better route runners and have better hands.V 103 Comments
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.
Possibly the best talent and potential to be one of the greatest ever. Makes plays nobody else can on a regular basis
Odell Beckham Jr. is a beast when he knows how to control his emotions, precise route running skills, very good ball skills, he has burst and catch after run all around explosive if the Giants have a better offensive line, he would be even more dangerous and explosive, has exceptional quickness and speed, huge hands allow him to catch very well and smoothly, also my favorite NFL player in my opinion he should be rated #2 under Antonio Brown
He is finesseV 134 Comments
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.
Best in the NFL by far these other receivers do not have the versatility of this man right here!
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 is better than becham.I spelled his name wrong because I don't careV 73 Comments
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
He should be number 2 or one with julio jones I think you are right he should be in the top 2 but the top five should be 1 julio jones 2 calvin johnson 3 antonio brown 4deandre hopkins 5 jarvis landry
Best WR everV 35 Comments
DeAndre Hopkins is a top 3 wide receiver along with Antonio Brown and Julio Jones.
I agree he should be a top five but not four he should be 5 Julio should be 4 Antonio should be 3 Odell 2 and Calvin Johnson number one
One of the leagues best, starting to enter his prime
Hopkins definitely deserves more credit.V 23 Comments
The Bengals were one of the best teams in the league and he was they're best target
Number 11 is way too low for a beast like A.J. Green!
Great hands is reliable for Dalton. - htoutlaws2012
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
He is really underrated and a beast. Imagine the damage he would do if he had a good quarterback.
He should be #1 on the list, it's a shame he's never made it to the playoffs
Mans 19on best ever why is he higher on this list
Not number one thoughV 15 Comments
This guy is top 10 talent no idea how he's this low. Maybe top 5 in a year
This guy is a top 5 receiver. He not only racks up yards, but has a gift for getting into the end zone.
Stat wise top 5 this year on a team too. Only his second season too
The next best thingV 10 Comments
I was totally shocked when Nelson got hurt and was out for the season - htoutlaws2012
Haters gonna hate, dez was injured too and should be in top 5, somehow jordy made it on first page and didn't play a game
I liked how he jumped over all the players and smacked a body slam touch with his muscles!
Hope he comes back fully from the knee injury, looking forward to seeing how he competes this year.V 11 Comments
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.
Shut up without Von miller and peyton manning we wouldn't have won the superbowl but then again demaryius thomas is a beast at catching
Simply the best he should be number one he better than most wide receivers anyone knows
The goatV 19 Comments
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.
Attorney Larry Fitzgerald was one of the best wide receivers in the NFL he got hands of Steel never lose the ball and he's one of the quickest wide receivers out there
Not even close Larry should be in top 5 with brown and Marshall should be there twoV 32 Comments
He is coming off a great second half of last year and the Chiefs look like they will continue to build their passing game.
He's a great receiver and lays it all out he deserves top 15
Because he is home team
How is he above A.J.?V 3 Comments
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.
An excellent top 10 wide receiver overshadowed by one of the league's most dominant defense
I'm a seahawks fan and I have been watching himV 10 Comments
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.
I think you're out of your mind the way he makes the defensive backs look like they're just standing in place he is by far and the top five he is just an all-out wide receiver with Crabtree on the other side you just have the two best stand-ups that you can't handle so it on that face up we're going to bowling and we're going to kick yourI thi
Amazing rookie year
Top shelf reciverV 14 Comments
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. - htoutlaws2012
He's a top five wide receiver with play making ability
I think he should be top ten because how short he is and explosive he can do a lot and just as good as odellV 18 Comments
What bears are better than any body remember Walter Payton
Just if he was on a better team oh my god he would be awesome
The injuries are killing em to back back out there. - htoutlaws2012
So underrated! He's among the top 10V 4 Comments
At first he wasn't looking good now Winston throws to him a ton. - htoutlaws2012
He should be a top 10 receiver
WHAT Evans is an amazing receiver
Mike Evans is way better than 23 he is at least in the top 10V 3 Comments

Ty HiltonV 4 Comments

Biggest deep threat in the NFL
Lost his touch, poor guy...
