The top NFL wide receivers for the 2012 season are those wide outs who will be leading the National Football League in receiving yards, catches and receiving touchdowns. Paired with the top 2012 NFL quarterbacks, these wide receivers will be burning up the fantasy football receiving columns all season long.

Just like picking the top running backs of the 2012 NFL season, much of deciding a top wide receiver comes down to which characteristics you value the most. Long story short, each is valuable in their own way and collectively each serve a purpose within the overall clockwork of their respective National Football League teams.

Receivers who serve as a deep threats, catching long passes long down the field or even in the end zone, such as Larry Fitzgerald of the Arizona Cardinals, Victor Cruz of the Super Bowl-champion New York Giants or Jordy Nelson of the Green Bay Packers, are certainly valued but so are those slot receivers who act as the favorite of quarterbacks in short-yardage situations such as Wes Welker of the New England Patriots, arguably one of the best at his position in the league today.

Just like team fandom, everyone is entitled to their own pick of which receivers are best in the NFL for 2012 that's why you can vote for your favorites, add any missing from the list and even re-rank this list as you see fit, all below.
