Ranking Each NFL Team’s #1 Receiver From Worst to Best

32. Corey Davis – Tennessee Titans


2017 stats: 34 receptions, 375 receiving yards, 0 touchdowns

It was a rough rookie season for the former No. 5 Overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. A combination of injuries and inconsistency shelved what many had hoped to be a productive first-year campaign. Davis does have the tools to be a dominant receiver. He’s got an impressive frame, and also has better top-end speed than one would think. However, he needs to prove he can put it all together in order to give Marcus Mariota a true No. 1 option. Davis will be given every opportunity to do so this season.

31. Julian Edelman – New England Patriots


2017 stats: Did Not Play

Edelman missed all of last season with a torn ACL. Prior to his injury, there was not a more indispensable pass-catcher on the Pats’ roster. Tom Brady looked for Edelman in any third-and-short situation. Whether it was running a dig route right past the sticks — or a crossing route over the heart of the field — Edelman’s toughness shined routinely. At 32 years old, there are questions about how Edelman will come back from injury. New England also likes to spread the ball around — thus potentially limiting Edelman’s statistical output. With Rob Gronkowski, Chris Hogan, Phillip Dorsett, Eric Decker, Devin Lucien, and Cordarrelle Patterson all on the roster, Edelman could see his numbers dwindle compared to his last full season.
