As the NFL continues to progress into more of a passing league, teams are looking for a franchise quarterback while also giving him at least one top target to throw to.
The duo you see at the top of this slideshow was integral in changing the fortunes of the entire Falcons franchise, and both players have become fan favorites. Matt Ryan and Roddy White without question form one of the top duos in the league.
So as we look at the top quarterback-wide receiver combos in the league, we'll go over the guidelines of the list. The players will be looked at as equally important to making the group great. Thus, a top quarterback that doesn't have a top wide receiver will be lower than a slightly lower quarterback that has a top-notch wide receiver. This makes it so the tandem has to be great, not just one of the players.
We will also be looking at what the pair has done together more so than what the players have done separately. This means that a guy that had a down year with a new team following several dominating seasons with another may be downgraded a bit and vice versa.
Sadly, the way I'm going to do it, some guys like Calvin Johnson won't make the list for lack of a consistent quarterback, though he and a healthy Matthew Stafford could make this list next season.
The way we will be placing them is like this: Of the 10 players at each position that I list, I will give them a number of where I think they rank compared to other players on the list. The highest number will be one, lowest number 10. The group with lowest average will be the top duo.
The top 10 duos are all very close together with no one group being tons and tons better than the rest. Let's get on to the top 10 quarterback-wide receiver tandems.
