I made this list after extensive research of over 200 NFL wide receivers. I took into account many variables, such as stats, Super Bowls, when the player played, who they played for, and my own opinion.
The stats I focused on were receptions, yards, touchdowns, receptions per game, yards per game, and yards per catch. I ranked all candidates in these categories and then averaged their rankings out.
After that, I made sure to weigh certain stats more heavily than others. For example, receptions seem to be more important than yards per catch, so that category weighed heavier.
Comparing the newer generation to the older generation was difficult since the new generation has a much better opportunity to have better stats. I took this into account as well.
I started writing this before and even published the first part, but the list just seemed wrong to me, so I did more research, and this is how it ended.
Even though I took many facts into account when making this list, I also injected my own opinion, so it is a list that not everyone will agree with.
