Pretty good list, imo. I would probably drop Tyreek several spots. Refreshing to see a national media not rank Edelman in the top5 and spend the whole article pumping him up for the HOF.

Think they need to drop Devante down to 8 or 9. I followed him closely last year since he was on my fantasy team and he had a lot of down weeks. He had some injury issues and all, but other guys stepped up in the league. Can't give him 5 just because of reputation.

Speaking of that Odell is just barely hanging onto his status at 10 because of one crazy catch 5 years ago. He needs a big year.

I would take Odell off the list and put Jarvis Landry on it.
My thoughts exactly. They are basing it off what they're guessing these guys will do in 2020 though so I can see why they put him there with his potential. Still would have gone with Landry because of his consistency. Makes it a more reliable prediction.

Tyreek Hill is overrated. Now, that’s not to say he isn’t a very good wide receiver. He’s just been blessed with supersonic speed and a QB who can throw the ball 80 yards across his body in a full sprint.

Edit: I should’ve said “I think he’s too highly rated on this list.” I don’t think he’s top 3 in the league. Top 10 definitely.

I almost always agree with your posts, but tyreek hill is not overrated. Dude is a nightmare for defenders, whether he is with mahomes or not.

And being blessed with supersonic speed is precisely why he is not overrated, its part of what makes him a top 10 receiver

I understand. But when I say overrated, I don’t mean that he isn’t elite or that he doesn’t give defenders headaches. I just mean that, this list had him as the 3rd best WR in the league, and I’m just not sure that’s the case. I’d still have him top ten though. I suppose I could’ve used better phrasing with my comment! That’s my bad

No kidding man. I would personally us continue to face JJ twice a year than put up with Hill twice a year. The dude is a nightmare!

I guess I just haven’t watched enough film on him. To me, he’s Brandin Cooks with a stronger-armed QB. Put a Safety over the top and any decent man CB on him and he disappears, from what I’ve seen. The problem is Mahomes. Dude can make any throw on the field from any position. He makes Hill look better than he is IMO.

Hopkins is in my top 3 with Thomas and Jones. I don’t see it changing anytime soon.
Yep the top three WRs in the league, in no particular order, are MT, Julio, and Hopkins. They are in a league of their own and no one comes close to them.

Hill is a top ten WR, but #3 in the league? Please. He averaged 5 catches for 81 yards per game last year. Compare that to MT’s 9.5 rec and 108 yds per game and Hill can’t hold MT’s jockstrap.

Perks of having a guy like Lattimore. Last season, in one of our games with the Clowns, Lattimore held Julio to 1 catch for 3 yards.

I can’t find stats for the other game with ATL because it’s exceedingly difficult to find advanced statistics for cornerbacks 🤦🏻‍♂️

I actually believe it's the other way around. Mahomes WR's are usually so wide open that Stevie Wonder could complete a pass to them if he had an arm. Especially Hill, his game speed is much better than Cooks.
