The NFL is full of elite players at the wide receiver position.
Each year it seems like a few new receivers emerge as top options in the league.
This year has been no different with plenty of top talent having gigantic statistical years.
Pro Football Focus recently released their highest-graded wide receivers on 15+ yard targets.
Each of these players is an elite player and some of the best in the league.

Being able to get the ball downfield to these guys has been the best source of offense for their respective teams.
It will be interesting to see if any of these elite playmakers will win some end-of-season awards.
The league MVP is a quarterback award so that is unlikely, but the offensive player of the year could be a wide receiver.
At this time it seems like Hill and Jefferson are the two top candidates for offensive player of the year.
Both players are on pace for historic seasons, with Hill having a chance at breaking the all-time receiving record.
In his first year with the Dolphins, Hill has not missed a beat.
He remains as explosive as ever and is looking at a career-best season with quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.
Jefferson has matched Hill’s elite season, as both continue to chase the receiving record set by Calvin Johnson.
Both players are averaging 112 receiving yards per game, and whoever has a better final few weeks will win the receiving title.
