Week 6: NFL Top 10 Wide Receivers Right Now

The 33rd Team's weekly top-10 WR rankings are a snapshot of where the league's best wide receivers are right now, taking into account the player's recent production, health, and an evaluation by our scouting department, led by former NFL team executive T.J. McCreight and assisted by scouts Justin Casey, Kevin Cohn and Evan Pritt.

>> Other Week 6 Rankings: QB RB

1. Cooper Kupp, Los Angeles Rams

Receptions: 49 | Yards: 527 | TD: 4 | Explosive Plays: 5

Previous Rank: 3

Kupp is a first-down machine. He can snatch the ball on the run and does not gear down. He's fast enough to separate and score on long plays. He's very difficult to cover and is just too good of a route runner to match up man-to-man.

2. Tyreek Hill, Miami Dolphins

Receptions: 38 | Yards: 528 | TD: 2 | Explosive Plays: 8

Previous Rank: 1

All he needs is just a little window, and he is gone. Hill is a tightly-wound, explosive player that can run by anyone in the NFL. His yards per catch are a bit lower because of the route concepts he runs.


3. Stefon Diggs, Buffalo Bills

Receptions: 39 | Yards: 508 | TD: 5 | Explosive Plays: 6

Previous Rank: 2

Diggs has easy, natural hands to pluck the football. He's tough with the ball, and you can see a strong stiff arm. He is capable of making plays down the field.

4. Justin Jefferson, Minnesota Vikings

Receptions: 40 | Yards: 547 | TD: 2 | Explosive Plays: 8

Previous Rank: 5

Jefferson will work smaller corners with his route-running skills and size. He's a long strider that gobbles up ground and has very good hands and ball skills. He doesn't have elite speed but still makes big plays.

5. Davante Adams, Las Vegas Raiders

Receptions: 29 | Yards: 415 | TD: 5 | Explosive Plays: 6

Previous Rank: 7

Adams does a lot of different things on the field; he's a savvy route runner that is tough to handle. We love him down the field and with the ball.


6. A.J. Brown, Philadelphia Eagles

Receptions: 28 | Yards: 436 | TD: 1 | Explosive Plays: 5

Previous Rank: 4

Brown really understands how to use his body. He's a big man that is tough to cover and tough to tackle. He's one of the stronger wide receivers in the NFL. One-on-one down the field, he is just too big, and his ball skills are too good.

7. Jaylen Waddle, Miami Dolphins

Receptions: 24 | Yards: 404 | TD: 3 | Explosive Plays: 6

Previous Rank: 8

Waddle has impressive yards per catch numbers and is good with the football in his hands. He has big speed and explosiveness.

8. Ja’Marr Chase, Cincinnati Bengals

Receptions: 32 | Yards: 343 | TD: 2 | Explosive Plays: 4

Previous Rank: 6

Chase doesn't the numbers he had last year. Still, he's a top-level talent, but he's not winning down the field one-on-one as he has in the past.

9. Deebo Samuel, San Francisco 49ers

Receptions: 20 | Yards: 266 | TD: 2 | Explosive Plays: 3

Previous Rank: 10

The 49ers want to get Samuel the ball on the move with a lot of crossing patterns. With the ball in his hands, he is outstanding. He has a strong lower body to kick out of tackles and has the speed to pull away.


10. Marquise Brown, Arizona Cardinals

Receptions: 48 | Yards: 417 | TD: 3 | Explosive Plays: 6

Previous Rank: N/R

Brown has been making progress each week getting in sync with Kyler Murray. This week will be the Cardinals' last game without DeAndre Hopkins, but Brown is currently tied for sixth in yards receiving for the whole league.
