Whether you need the information for fantasy football in Wisconsin or for online sports betting in Ohio, knowing the best wide receivers for NFL is important. The ideal profile of a wide receiver is explosive play, good command of the ball, and confidence. Last season saw one player dominate the league but there were many coming up behind him.
A couple of months ago, we talked about the significant effect of an NFL kicker. But what about the best wide receivers? Let’s take a look:
Cooper Kupp – Los Angeles Rams
Despite his current ankle injury that he suffered in November 2022, we still need to mention Cooper Kupp. After all, he has shown himself to come back impressively from injury in 2018, when he tore his ACL. At 29 years of age, Kupp is expected to have a few more great seasons ahead of him. Whether he’ll return for this season or not depends on whether the Rams decide to sideline him to rest up for another impressive comeback. He ranks fourth on the NFL Top 100 players for 2022.
Davante Adams – Las Vegas Raiders
Adams has settled in well with the Raiders for his first season. In his recent match with the LA Rams, Adams made a phenomenal one-handed catch during the first quarter. The catch landed on the Rams’ 38-yard line and went for 32 yards! Adams is certainly one to watch. He ranks seventh on the NFL Top 100 players for 2022. So far this season, he has played in 13 games and has a receiving-yards-per-reception average of 15.2, which is impressive! He has also had 12 touchdowns.
Tyreek Hill – Miami Dolphins
Hill recently sat out of practice with an illness but he has amassed some impressive stats this season. In week 14, his projections are 100.3 yards, 7.3 receptions, and 0.74 touchdowns. He currently ranks 15th in the Top 100 NFL players for 2022, with 12 games played, 96 receptions, and 14.4 yards per reception this season, which is above his career average of 13.9.
Justin Jefferson – Minnesota Vikings
There’s no denying Jefferson is fast and moves in a uniquely elegant way on the field – and his stats are impressive. For his first three seasons with the Vikings, he has already become the best leader in receiving yards and he’s in with a shot of becoming the first 2,000-yard leader. At just 23 years of age, it’s exciting to imagine what may become of this young player. He ranks 17th on the NFL Top 100 players for 2022.
Deebo Samuel – San Francisco 49ers
Although Samuel is currently suffering from an apparent quadriceps injury, we can’t deny the fact that he is one of the best wide receivers in the NFL right now. He was ranked in 19th place on the NFL Top 100 Players of 2022.
Ja’Marr Chase – Cincinnati Bengals
Chase has some notable stats – he already has a receiving yards average of 87.8 and in just under 42% of his opportunities so far this season, he has collected more than 80.5 receiving yards. The Bengals have also won four games in a row and are at 8-4, despite starting at 0-2 at the beginning of the season.
Chase made four NFL records last year – he was the youngest player with multiple 100-yard receiving games in a single postseason, he had the highest number of receiving yards by a rookie, he had the highest number of receiving yards in one game by a rookie (at 266) and had the highest number of receiving yards in a postseason by a rookie. He ranks 24th on the NFL Top 100 players for 2022.
Stefon Diggs – Buffalo Bills
Diggs currently has a 100.2 yards average and has recorded over 79.5 receiving yards in eight games of the 12 he has played so far. He has also caught touchdown passes in eight games. He currently ranks 26th in the NFL Top 100 Players of 2022.
Keenan Allen – Los Angeles Chargers
Currently ranked 35th in the NFL top players of 2022, Allen has only played five games in the 2022 season so far. His average receiving yards per reception this year is 14.0, which is higher than his career average of 11.8. He has also made two receiving touchdowns in those five games.
It’s safe to say that there are a number of excellent wide receivers in the NFL league in 2022. There are also a few more to look out for, including DeAndre Hopkins, Mike Evans, Jaylen Waddle, Odell Beckham Jr., and CeeDee Lamb, who all appear among the Top 100 NFL players this year.
