2023 NFL Season: Ranking the best wide receivers in the league
5. Ja’Marr Chase, Cincinnati Bengals
Ja’Marr Chase had a historically good rookie season and quickly established himself as one of the league’s best. He’s got separation ability and underrated speed. He and Joe Burrow might be the best QB/WR combination in the NFL, and both being young bodes well for the Bengals’ future.
4. Stefon Diggs, Buffalo Bills
Stefon Diggs has played eight years in the NFL and has amassed 8,812 receiving yards and 59 touchdown catches. He’s got five straight seasons of at least 1,000 yards and double-digit touchdown catches in two straight seasons.
Diggs and his QB, Josh Allen, also have a great argument as being the best QB/WR duo in the NFL. Diggs turns 30 late in the 2023 season, so perhaps we could potentially see the beginning of a decline.
3. Tyreek Hill, Miami Dolphins
Tyreek Hill is a seven time Pro Bowler with four All-Pro nods as well. He made the HOF All-2010s team and has over 8,000 yards in just seven seasons, with three straight campaigns of at least 1,200 yards. The best year of his career came in 2022 with the Dolphins. He hit 1,710 yards and caught seven touchdowns.
The 2023 NFL season should be just as kind to Hill, who is a part of an explosive offense.
2. Davante Adams, Las Vegas Raiders
Davante Adams is a touchdown machine. He’s got a whopping six seasons of at least 10 touchdown catches and has led the NFL in TD catches in two seasons. With two straight 1,500 yard seasons, Adams has continued his dominant ways. Adams might be the best route runner in the NFL. He won’t wow with speed, but his separation is elite.
1. Justin Jefferson, Minnesota Vikings
Justin Jefferson is the best wide receiver in the NFL, by far. He’s on Hall of Fame pace and three has nearly 5,000 yards in three seasons. Jefferson can truly do it all and has made the Pro Bowl in each season of his career, while also not missing a game.
The 2023 NFL season should be just as kind to Jefferson, who will once again catch passes from Kirk Cousins. He’s been targeted a whopping 476 times in three years and has 324 receptions. His 106.4 yards per game in 2022 led the NFL as well, and in all likelihood, before the 2023 NFL season starts, Jettas will sign a record contract extension.
