Best Wide Receivers in the NFL? Brett Favre Has 4

If Brett Favre could choose four current wide receivers to to throw to if he were playing today, who would make his top four? To very little surprise, the Hall of Fame quarterback’s list begins with former Green Bay Packers and current Las Vegas Raiders wideout Davante Adams.

“You know Davante is gonna run a slant … then a sluggo, but yet no one can guard him,” said Favre, who added that Adams “runs the double move better than anyone who has run routes in history.”

Next up: Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp, who led the league in receiving yards, receptions and touchdowns in 2021. Favre praises Kupp’s tremendous route-running ability.

Favre rounds out his list with former college teammates at LSU, Ja’Marr Chase of the Cincinnati Bengals and the Minnesota Vikings’ Justin Jefferson. This is a bit of a surprise considering how brief their NFL careers have been.

“Tremendous players right from the get-go … you can tell those guys were ready to play,” Favre said. “Just amazing and fun to watch, and it’d be fun to throw to those guys.”
