Been a bit of a hot topic between me and a few of my buddies as to who is the best WR in the NFL. I've heard Hopkins, Jones, Brown, etc. Personally, I think it's Beckham. Guy's just too explosive, and he can change a game very quickly with just one play. 

 

Who do you think is the best wideout in the NFL?

Anyone catching passes from Tom Brady or Aaron Rogers!

Right now, I would classify that as over the last 3 seasons, Antonio Brown and there isn't a close 2nd. 

http://www.footballoutsiders.com/stats/wr

He's the only player to total DYAR above 1000 for the past three seasons. This meaning how many yards above the replacement WR does he contribute based on the defenses he faced. He's totaled 1400 DYAR, the next best is Jordy Nelson at 884. 

He's had the most TD's over the past 3  years by a WR with 31. The next best is Brandon Marshall at 26. 

He's catch percent is in the top 20% of the top listed WR on that list.

This ^

Beckham is a good receiver but he's got a ways to go before he's Top 3.

A good point you bring up, and accurate. My only question with that info is that Beckham has been around for 2 years, not 3, so I'm not sure how much a year can factor into the equation. Being a Giants fan myself, I'm also a bit (ok, a lot...) biased. Both very good wideouts though. On a bit of a side note, the guy who I expect to really jump into the mix is Hopkins. As in, into the top 3-5 this season. My fantasy savior last year

Gotta give Dez some love here.  Injured most of last season but I'd call him a top 3-5, for sure.

Could be Josh Gordon, but he can't seem to pull his head out of the bong! And the Browns can't seem to pull a QB out of anywhere to get him the ball! What a waste of talent!

I would rate the position this way. Brown, Jones, and Beckham. Beckham however seems to be going the way T.O. messed up his career. 

Then their is that "Gronk" fella who out performs most WRs on a weekly basis when healthy, and playing catch with Brady.

Sure as hell isn't Jarvis Landry. That dude and his team have absolutely killed me this season. 3 friggin points this past week.

As much as I hate to say this, Coates from the Steelers is someone to watch. He is very impressive.

@iacas may need medical attention is he reads this post. Someone get ready to dial 911.

Why?

Coates is good. But the Steelers have had a number of good WRs the past few years… the common denominator? The QB.

AB is probably the best in the league, but he's being pressured to stop hurting the team a bit, too, and needs to mature a little.

Coates seems to be burning people deep when they know he is going deep. It's a little early to tell, which is why I said someone to watch.

Credit definitely needs to be given to the QB (jerk). Isn't he going to retire soon? :-P

FWIW I'm just watching the game now and Coates just dropped a five-yard pass from the 1.5 yard line with about 30 seconds left in the first half. Hit him right in the hands with nobody near him. Dropped.

Ouch. Maybe he is only good on long passes.

Exactly. Good/great QBs can make even average receivers look good. BR has a knack for finding receivers down field even when a play looks broken.

    • Yeah if you can sink a bunch of putts from the parking lot. 500' of putts is mind blowing. If you want to prove to yourself the value of Driver and approach shots find a friend who is much better or much worse than you and play 2 balls alternate shot. I did this for a league event yesterday and I was far closer to their average than mine. Hitting 190-220 approach shots on par 4s and a ton of 60 yard pitches over hazards is not good for scoring.
    • I think JV oversimplifies the swing in regards to errors. He stares there are only two areas to address based on your error. If your ball flight  is off it’s your position, your shoulders. If your contact is off it’s your weight. I know beyond any doubt there were times I had all my weight forward and still hit the ball fat. There were also times I kept my shoulders closed and still shanked it. There is still plenty of room and movement to be done to cause errors I believe. And although it’s true I hit really nice draws with 7i and down...once I got to 6i and longer the nice shots became scarce. Just couldn’t get any good distance from the longer irons. Drives were nice draws but I think the distance I gained was as I said before, better path and better contact with the face. But still nothing to write home about.
    • Learning golf is definitely chaotic, there's no question about that, but I've had the pleasure of working with several good instructors over the years, and there's also no question that they quantum leap you forward. You could spend an entire year practicing five times a week trying to figure out something that the instructor will tell you in thirty seconds. That kind of time/chaos reduction is worth the $100 or whatever they charge. You're always going to have to practice a lot to become good at this game, but if you don't have correct information or you keep ingraining bad habits and just keep trying to make them work, you will never ever get there, "there" being wherever you realistically hope to be.
    • For the last few years, we've played a 3-club 3-player scramble.  Played like a normal scramble, but each player may only take 3 clubs, and may only play his (or her) clubs.  Planning is interesting, trying to choose clubs that play to each player's strengths while covering most of the potential situations on the course.  
    • 1. Met - Handicap never went above 6.5 and ended year at 5.2 although that's .5 artificially low. Still relatively consistent for year.2. Met - Posted 40 rounds, averaged 8.06 for those rounds, 7.92 including 4 9 hole scores that I posted. 7.8 on my home course and 8.4 on other courses. I guess that gives me something to work on for next year.3. Met - Played Gamble Sands and TPC Sawgrass - pretty cool.4. Met - and then didn't meet. Probably about two pounds heavy right now. Have to keep diligent over the holidays.Overall pretty pleased. I think there's another stroke, maybe 1.5 strokes of improvement out there. Need to play the other courses I frequent more often.
