List Rules Vote up the most accomplished wide receivers in the NFL for the 2018-2019 season.

Catching a football sounds easy, but imagine running across the field with full gear and an elite defender guarding you every step of the way. In order to be one of the best wide receivers in the NFL, players must learn their routes, lose their defenders, and most importantly, not drop the ball. Also known as the fastest and most agile players in the league, these are the best wide receivers in the NFL right now in 2018-2019.  

When fans discuss the best wide receivers in football, players like the New York Giants' Odell Beckham Jr. and the New England Patriots' Antonio Brown are usually in the mix. In recent years, the Indianapolis Colts' T.Y. Hilton led the league in receiving yards, while Atlanta Falcon Julio Jones had the best average with 100.6 yards per game. However, Green Bay Packer Jordy Nelson was the touchdown leader among WRs with 14. 

Vote for who you think are the best current NFL wide receivers. Even if the player is a rookie or a veteran, just vote up the WRs who are currently playing well in the league. Feel free to add other great wide receivers missing from the list. If you're a fantasy football player, head over and help decide the best fantasy football WRs of 2019.
