Best Wide Receiver Duos in the NFL Today
These are the best Wide Receiver Duos in the NFL today based on overall talent and production from the 2022-23 season. The best wide receivers in the NFL are game-changers. It is one of the most exciting and dynamic positions on the field.
If you want to be included in the fan voting, the most up-to-date fan voting is on my Instagram page @sogfootball.
#10 – Davante Adams & Hunter Renfrow
While Davante Adams is widely considered the best Wide Receiver in the NFL, this is a list of best wide receiver duos. We have to consider the production of the two together.
When it comes to Hunter Renfrow, he was injured for most of the season and really only had one game. That being said, when healthy, Hunter Renfrow is still one of the best WR2’s in the NFL.
Going into next season, if this duo gets an upgrade at QB, I believe they have the chance to rise into the top 5. For now, I believe 10th is as high as I can rank them which is two lower than what the fans voted.
#9 – DeAndre Hopkins & Marquise Brown
This is another what if scenario. What if DeAndre Hopkins wasn’t suspended for the first six games. What if Marquise Brown didn’t get injured mid-season. And maybe most importantly, what if they didn’t have Colt McCoy and Trace McSorley throwing to them to finish this season.
I think this is quietly one of the most talented wide receiver duos in the NFL that was put into a very unfortunate circumstance. Their stats as a duo does not reflect just how good they are.
While there are rumors of DeAndre Hopkins being traded this off-season, I believe that they can both be dominant with a healthy Kyler Murray going into next season. But again, what if.
#8 – Keenan Allen & Mike Williams
Well, it’s looking like a common theme for the first three duos listed. A case of injuries.
When healthy, Keenan Allen and Mike Williams were putting up numbers. We all know the talent is there and they have the luxury of Justin Herbert who I consider as one of the best Quarterbacks in the NFL.
Keenan Allen is one of the best route runners in the NFL and Mike Williams is one of the best jump ball deep threats in the NFL. When healthy, they are one of the best ying and yang combos. They complement eachother perfectly.
#7 – D.K. Metcalf & Tyler Lockett
I thought that D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett’s production would suffer with Geno Smith at Quarterback. I couldn’t have been more wrong.
Both Wide Receivers did not fall off with the Quarterback change. That is a testimate to their overall talent.
While Tyler Lockett is approaching the cliff age for Wide Receiver’s production, he still has shown no signs of slowing down. I also believe that D.K. Metcalf still has the potential to become one of the best Wide Receivers in the NFL if he can become more consistent.
#6 – Justin Jefferson & Adam Thielen
I’m not going to lie, I was shocked to see how highly rated this duo was in the fan voting. While I think it’s clear that Justin Jefferson is the best Wide Reciever in the NFL, it’s also clear that we have already seen the best of Adam Thielen.
Again, we have to consider the duo together. When it comes to Adam Thielen, he is turning 33 years old and struggled to produce consistently last season.
While they were a top 10 duo this past season, I would not be shocked at all if there is a new WR2 that emerges in Minnesota. If it’s not K.J. Osborn, it could be a newly draft receiver.
#5 – Mike Evans & Chris Godwin
Going into the season, you could have made an argument for Mike Evans and Chris Godwin being the best wide receiver duo in the NFL. How quickly things can change.
They have the history together and a Super Bowl under their belt. The problem was this Bucs offense as a whole.
It seemed like Tom Brady was never on the same page as these guys throughout the whole year. Blame Brady, or blame Leftwich. Regardless, you can’t deny that was the case.
I still believe in this duo when it comes to talent which is why I still include them as number 5 on this list.
#4 – Stefon Diggs & Gabe Davis
If I were ranking the best Quarterback to Wide Receiver duos, Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs would be a candidate for first on the list. But for this list it is Diggs and Davis which leads me to this thought.
I have no idea what to think of Gabe Davis. Some games it looks like he himself can be in the argument for top 10 best Wide Receivers, then other games he is nowhere to be found. It’s clear he’s a home run hitter, but there is much more to the position than just the deep ball.
Stefon Diggs on the other hand is what we know. He continues to dominate and spearheads this duo into the top 3 conversation.
#3 – A.J. Brown & Devonta Smith
I wasn’t sure what to make of this duo going into the season. I believed in both of them individually, but I thought Jalen Hurts would hinder their production. This is a case of another take of mine being freezing cold. Jalen Hurts was a beast and this was without a doubt one of the top 3 best wide receiver duos in the NFL.
I still think the Titans were moronic for trading away A.J. Brown. He already proved himself as a top wide receiver on a run first team. When given free reign in Philadelphia, he cemented himself even further in this argument.
As for Devonta Smith, I don’t think any questions can be made anymore about his size. He has that dog mentality, and his elusiveness allows him to stay healthy by avoiding would be tacklers.
In only their first year, this duo made a name for themselves. With even more chemistry, they could be risers on this list for next season.
#2 – Ja’Marr Chase & Tee Higgins
While it must be nice having Joe Burrow slinging it at Quarterback, this duo’s talent individually cannot be questioned.
Ja’Marr Chase is without a doubt one of the top 10 best Wide Receivers in the NFL and Tee Higgins continues to be one of the most underrated wide receivers in the NFL.
When it comes to Ja’Marr Chase, you already know the story. He can do it all at Wide Receiver and managed to record a second consecutive 1000 yard season even with an injury keeping him out of action for five games.
Tee Higgins has also developed into one of the best contested catch artists in the NFL. His massive frame is one thing, but his strong hands and desire for the football has led to some of the best catches since entering the NFL.
If Ja’Marr Chase wasn’t injured this season, they would have an even bigger case for best wide receiver duo in the NFL.
#1 – Tyreek Hill & Jaylen Waddle
And here it is… the best of the best. These are two of the fastest players in the NFL that also combine to create the best Wide Receiver duo in the NFL.
When you combine two of the top 10 best Wide Receivers today, you get what you expect. This duo combined for the most receiving yards of any WR duo in the NFL.
While I had my questions about Tua, a Mike McDaniel offense is a dream scenario for any skill position players. Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle were given deep shots, given the ball in space, and the production followed.
What’s even crazier is the amount of times they were underthrown. It’s almost like they’re too fast for their own good. With another full off-season in this offense, I believe that their 3000+ combined yards can rise even further.
