Top Five NFL Receivers

image

In a league that is becoming increasingly more “pass first,” top level NFL receivers are  at a premium.  COwboys receiver, Dez Bryant recently opened a can of worms when he claimed in a radio interview that he was better than Calvin Johnson.  Seriously?  Is there a receiver on planet earth that is better than Megatron?  On paper, probably not.  But touchdowns are caught between the lines and not on paper.

With that in mind, an objective review of the current stats through 7 weeks reveal a number of receivers who could claim the title of “Receiver of the Year…So Far.”

In no particular order, here are my top five “Receiver of the Year” candidates after 7 weeks:

Wes Welker – leads the league with touchdown catches at 8

A.J. Green – near the top in all major statistical categories

Calvin Johnson –  Look up “Beast” in the dictionary and you will find Johnson’s photo

Dez Bryant – Nudges out Julio Jones by a whisker

Demaryius Thomas – Ranks high in most stat categories
