25 Greatest Wide Receiver Seasons

Photo by: Pasion Magazine

According to www.numberfire.com, the 25 best Wide Receiver seasons over the past 25 years are annotated in the table below.  We've applied our BSN to the individual seasons to assess what we truly suggests as the BattleStat ranking of the representative seasons.  It's very interesting to see how the numbers played out, especially given the difference in styles of play over the past 2 and a half decades.

Not taking anything away from the players of today, however, viewing these results shows how truly special the players of the first 5-7 years of the 25 year period were.  As we already know, Rice and Irvin were special...I mean really special.  And, that 1995 season shows just how special they were.  In fact, 3 of our top 7 BSNs were from the 1995 season, with Rice, Irvin, and Herman Moore being atop that list.

One thing to note is how gifted and talented Antonio Brown is.  This guys numbers are just amazing. He's explosive, reliable, and hardly ever fumbles or drops the ball.  He can play in any era.  Read below and enjoy.
