Best Receiving Corps

Who has the best receiving set out right now? When I ask this question I’m asking in current time, don’t add in players with injuries. I have listed and explained my top 10 receiving corps, tell me what you think.1.  Arizona Cardinals

Larry Fitzgerald, John Brown, and Michael Floyd

In his 12th season, Fitzgerald is on pace for career-bests in catches and TDs, and is currently our sixth-ranked WR. Also, he is second among all WRs in QB rating when targeted (136.1) and sixth in YPRR (2.63), with 61.9 percent of his routes now run from the slot. Michael Floyd is also on pace for his personal-best season.Brown suck up this season and became a real shocker this season.

2. Cincinnati Bengals

A.J. Green, Marvin Jones, and Mohamed Sanu

A youthful group, the Bengals are led by our No. 7 overall WR, A.J. Green. He is currently 11th in receiving yards and ninth in YPRR (2.55). After missing 2014, Jones has come back to give QB Andy Dalton his full arsenal of receiving targets, and, along with Sanu, bring versatility and big play ability with their size and speed combination. Jones is 11th in QB rating when targeted, and he and Green have combined for 11 catches and three TDs on deep ball targets of 20 yards or more.

3. Pittsburg Steelers

Antonio Brown, Martavis Bryant, and Markus Wheaton

Antonio Brown is the No.1 receiver in the league. The combination between him and Ben Roethlisberger is crazy. All three of these receivers are deep threats with crazy speed. Bryant has the ability to jump over top of defenders. Personally Wheaton and Bryant have the same style of play.

4. Jacksonville Jaguars

Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns, and Bryan Walters

Maybe a bit of a shocker but the Jaguars receiving group has impressed in 2015 and looks set up for the future, with the youthful Robinson and Hurns leading the way. Even the journeyman, but still relatively young, Walters has played well in the slot, catching 24 of his 28 targets (85.7 percent, tied No. 1 in the NFL) with zero drops. Neither is afraid of going deep, either, as they are ninth and 16th, respectively, in the percentage of their targets being over 20 yards, with Hurns tied for the league lead with three touchdowns on those deep targets.

5. New York Jets

Brandon Marshall, Eric Decker, and Jeremy Kerley

Marshall is a No. 1 type receiver who is currently 11th in YPRR, the Jets finally have given themselves a group with defined roles. As he proved in Denver before signing with New York, Decker is a great No. 2, and Kerley complements both in the slot (82 percent of Kerley’s routes are from the slot).

Other teams to look out for are the Houston Texans, the Miami Dolphins and the Raiders. Rookies Amari Cooper and DeVante Parker are making names for themselves. DeAndre Hopkins continues to make plays for the texans like he did against the Bengals. If it wasn’t for Victor Cruz being hurt I think Odell Beckham Jr. and Cruz would be the best duo in the league right now. Looking forward to that next season.
