Top 5 Wide Receivers Heading Into The 2020 NFL Season

Top 5 Wide Receivers Heading Into The 2020 NFL Season

There are some great wide receivers in the NFL today. A few honorable mentions for this list are Chris Godwin, Mike Evans, and Amari Cooper. You know that there are great receivers on this list when guys like Godwin, Evans, and Cooper are left off the list. The top 4 receivers on this list are all in the NFC and the 5th receiver is in the AFC. These wide receivers are game-changers and great targets for their quarterbacks.

5. Tyreek Hill

Tyreek Hill is the 5th best wide receiver in the NFL and he plays for the best team in the NFL. Sure, having Patrick Mahomes as his quarterback certainly makes Hill look better, but there is no doubt that he is a great receiver. He has insane speed that no defensive back in the NFL can match. Hill's speed and Mahomes arm are a fantastic combination that make Hill one of the best receivers in the NFL.

4. Davante Adams

Adams had a bit of a down year statistically because of injury last year, but he was just a few yards short of 1,000 in just 12 games. If he played all 16 games, Adams would probably have about 105 catches for about 1,300 yards. If he is able to play the full season next year, expect a 100 catch, 1,300 campaign. Davante Adams had a great year despite dealing without injury and he should have another good one in 2020.

3. Deandre Hopkins

Deandre Hopkins had 104 receptions for 1,165 yards for the Texans in 2019. Hopkins numbers are not as great as other receivers, but he is still one of the best in the game. He had more receptions and many more yards in 2018, but he consistently was facing top cornerbacks and double teams throughout the season. Hopkins has a new team and new quarterback in 2020 and it will be interesting to see if he is compatible in the new offense.

2. Michael Thomas

Michael Thomas had an insane season last year. He broke the single season reception record with an insane 149 catches. Thomas plays like a tight end just in a wide receiver's body. Michael Thomas got targeted an insane amount of times this season. He runs many short routes over the middle of the field and does not get much RAC yardage. That is what makes him more of a tight end, but he is still a great player.

1. Julio Jones

In my opinion, Julio Jones is one of the most underrated players in the NFL today. Every year since 2014, Julio has had 1,390+ receiving yards including 1,871 yards on 136 catches in 2015. Julio is the hardest player to guard one on one in the NFL. There is not one downside to Julio's game. Size, speed, strength, and hands are what make him the best receiver in the NFL.
