Jerry Rice was voted to 13 Pro Bowls, was named first-time All-Pro 11 seasons in a row, won three Super Bowls, and is even a member of the National Football League’s (NFL) All-Decade team of the 1980s and1990s. Additionally, Rice owns virtually every significant wide receiving record in NFL history, including receiving yards (22,895), receptions (1,549), most 1,000-yard receiving seasons (14), combined net yards (23,546), and total touchdowns (208).
Though there will likely never be a receiver as talented and successful as Rice, there are still plenty of exceptionally skilled players catching passes all over the field. Receivers all over the NFL might be using football glove grip spray and great cleats for improved catching and running, but what separates them from the rest of the competition is their hard work, talent, and pure athletic ability.
Here are some of the best wide receivers of the 2018 NFL season:
- Adam Thielen, Minnesota Vikings (WR) -- Thielen is certainly having a breakout year this season and him and Stefon Diggs might be the two best WRs on any team. Without Theilen's nine touchdowns, the Vikings would be seriously struggling this year.
- Davante Adams, Green Bay Packers (WR) -- Though the Packers are struggling more than usual this season, even firing their head coach after a successful 13 years, Adams continues to be a touchdown machine. It doesn't hurt that his quarterback is Aaron Rodgers, but his 11 touchdowns are certainly very impressive.
- Zach Ertz, Philadelphia Eagles (TE) -- Ertz is the only tight end on this list because he's that good. Only Thielen (98) has more receptions than Ertz (98) this season. Ertz has hauled in six touchdowns so far and is a major reason the defending Super Bowl champion Eagles are still in playoff contention this year.
- Odell Beckham Jr., New York Giants (WR) -- Whether OBJ utilizes excellent quality football glove grip spray during all his receptions remains to be seen, but he makes unbelievable catch after unbelievable catch each week. Without a doubt, he's one of the most talented receivers in history.
