Top Ten Best NFL Wide Receivers of the 2015-2016 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.

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

He is awesome

2 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.

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

Odell is super duper cool with is one handed catches and he his the best wide receiver I know and he has the best skills that a wide receiver can do.

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.

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 thin odell beckham jr.,

4 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.

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 ever

5 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.

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.

6 A.J. Green A.J. Green

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

AJ Green
Julio Jones
Antonio Brown
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

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

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 though

8 Allen Robinson Allen Robinson Allen Bernard Robinson II is an American football wide receiver for the Jacksonville Jaguars of the National Football League.

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 thing

9 Jordy Nelson Jordy Nelson Jordy Ray Nelson is an American football wide receiver for the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League.

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!

He is having a great year

10 Demaryius Thomas Demaryius Thomas Demaryius Antwan Thomas is an American football wide receiver for the Denver Broncos of the National Football League.

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

He is awesome

The Contenders

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

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

He is mangnet hands

12 Jeremy Maclin Jeremy Maclin Jeremy Maclin is an American football wide receiver for the Kansas City Chiefs of the National Football League.

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.?

13 Doug Baldwin Doug Baldwin Douglas Dewayne Baldwin Jr. is an American football wide receiver for the Seattle Seahawks of the National Football League.

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 him

14 Jarvis Landry Jarvis Landry Jarvis Charles Landry is an American football wide receiver for the Miami Dolphins of the National Football League.

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 odell

V 18 Comments
15 Amari Cooper Amari Cooper Amari Cooper is an American football wide receiver for the Oakland Raiders of the National Football League.

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 reciver

Biggest deep threat in the NFL
