Top 10 Wide Receivers in NFL history

A list of top 10 best NFL wide receivers. I know that there are many more wide receivers that more than qualify for the list but I had to pick 10

1

#1 Jerry Rice

#1 Jerry Rice

Jerry Rice is leading the NFL for most yards with 22,895. By far the best.

2

#2 Randy Moss

#2 Randy Moss

Don't think there is much I need to say except that its Randy Moss...................... Probable one of the most game changing electrifying players to play the game of football #NotAPatriotsFan

#3 Terrell Owens (TO)

#3 Terrell Owens (TO)

I know, I know he was very cocky but he was a good player. Despite he was thrown around the NFL from the San Francisco 49ers to the Philadelphia Eagles to the Dallas Cowboys to the Buffalo Bills then to the Cincinnati Bengals. Okay I think that you understand my point. He had at least 2,000 yards receiving in about every team except the Bills and Bengals.

4

#4 Larry Fitzgerald

#4 Larry Fitzgerald

Larry Fitzgerald is a beast on the field. Lets just say hes been plying for 13 years and is still playing and has only fumbled the ball 11 times. Remember that number for later.

5

#5 Dez Bryant

#5 Dez Bryant

Remember when I told you to remember the number of fumbles Larry Fitzgerald has..... well he has over half the number of fumbles and he only been in the league for 9 years. But im not trying to hate on dez because Dez has some f the most athletic catches and is one of the fastest wide receivers in the NFL.

#6 Odell Beckham Jr

#6 Odell Beckham Jr

I know that a majority of people are mad that he's on this list because a lot of people think that the One Hand Catch set up his career and just handed him his fame. But lets be honest he broke all these records in his rookie year and his one hand catch happened week 1 of his second season against the Dallas Cowboys on Brandon Carr (39). There's more records but I decided to do 13 because that's his jersey number.

1) Most receptions (110) through the first 15 games of his NFL career, achieved after Thursday night's seven-catch, 79-yard performance.

2) First and only rookie in NFL history with at least 50 receptions at home during his rookie season.

3) Fastest player in NFL history to reach 100 career receptions (14 games).

4) Highest average receiving yards total per game for any rookie ever (108.8, set in 2014).

5) Only rookie to have at least 11 receptions in consecutive games in NFL history (Weeks 13 & 14 in 2014).

6) Only rookie to catch at least 12 balls, with 140-or-more yards and three touchdowns in one game (Week 14).

7) Most receiving yards in a single calendar month for any rookie in history (606), which he did December of 2014.

8) Youngest player in league history (22 years, 53 days) with multiple games of 10-or-more catches in a single season (4).

9) Most games of at least 125 receiving yards in a rookie season with 6.

10) Only rookie in NFL history with five games of 90-or-more yards in a single month (November, 2014).

11) He is the only player in NFL history to rack up at least 1,300 yards receiving in 12-or-fewer games in a season. Not just for any rookie, but any receiver, ever.

12) Only rookie to have more than one game with at least 125 yards, 10 catches and a touchdown in a season. Odell Beckham Jr. didn't just do it twice. He did it four times.

13) He is the only rookie to post a season of at least 75 receptions, 1,100 receiving yards and 10-or-more touchdowns in NFL history.

#7 Calvin Johnson

#7 Calvin Johnson

Calvin Johnson had 731 receptions in his NFL career. That's 3 times as many receptions as Odell Beckham Jr
