If you’re tired of The Griddy, we’ve got some bad news: Jefferson appears to have signed a long-term lease with the end zone.

2. Hunt Ja’Marr | Cincinnati Bengals

This passing offense will be high-flying once again this year, and Joe Burrow’s favorite target since college will continue to make big plays.

3.Cooper Kupp | Los Angeles Rams

He may not have the youth of Jefferson and Chase, but Kupp will once again be one of the most productive pass receivers in the league this year.

4. Stefon Diggs | buffalo bills

Steve Roberts-USA TODAY Sports

Josh Allen and the Bills are going to throw him all over the place, and Diggs will be their main target again.

5. Davante Adams | las vegas raiders

Reunited with his college quarterback, Adams should continue to put up big numbers for the team he dreamed of playing for as a kid.

6. CeeDee Lamb | dallas cowboys

Stephen Lew-USA TODAY Sports

With Amari Cooper out and Michael Gallup still working his way back from injury, Lamb should see a lot of the ball coming from Dak Prescott.

Tom Brady is back for another year, and this future Hall of Famer is headed to a ninth straight season of 1,000 yards and double-digit touchdowns for the third year in a row.

He no longer has Patrick Mahomes, but Hill remains a deciding factor that could help Tua Tagovailoa take the next step in his development.

9. Deebo Samuel | San Francisco 49ers

No matter how he gets the ball in his hands, Deebo will make great things happen with it, regardless of who plays quarterback.

A healthy Baker Mayfield gives Moore a big upgrade at quarterback, which was really the only thing keeping him from putting up big numbers.

11.Michael Pittman Jr. | Indianapolis Colts

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

Speaking of improvements at quarterback, the addition of Matt Ryan should be huge for Pittman, who has all the makings to maximize his role as Indy’s No. 1 receiver.

12. AJ Brown | philadelphia eagles

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Jalen Hurts needed another legitimate weapon to take the Eagles’ passing game to the next level, and Brown provides exactly that.

13. Higgins T-shirt | Cincinnati Bengals

Syndication: The Enquirer

He may be No. 2 in Cincy, but Higgins still has the makings of a No. 1 receiver, and Joe Burrow will continue to send plenty of targets his way.

14. Mike Williams | Los Angeles Chargers

Justin Herbert is already one of the best quarterbacks in the league, and he’ll be throwing the ball a lot this year. Even with Keenan Allen in the picture, Williams should provide the big numbers part of him.

15.Terry McLaurin | Washington Commanders

Even with a questionable quarterback situation, “Scary Terry” is too good not to have a big year in 2022.

16.Courtland Sutton | Denver Broncos

C. Morgan Engel-USA TODAY Sports

The arrival of Russell Wilson should be a huge boost for this entire offense, especially for the Broncos’ top pass receivers like Sutton.

17. D. K. Metcalf | Seattle Seahawks

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

It’s a big drop from Russell Wilson to Geno Smith, but Metcalf still has uncommon athleticism and explosiveness, which should result in plenty of production.

18.Keenan Allen | Los Angeles Chargers

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Allen, Justin Herbert’s No. 1a, is one of the smartest route runners in the league and rarely loses on contested catches.

19.Chris Godwin | Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Even if Godwin isn’t ready for Week 1, he’ll be back sooner rather than later and should resume his vital role as Tom Brady’s most reliable intermediate target.

20. Allen Robinson II | Los Angeles Rams

Syndication: The Enquirer

Without Odell Beckham Jr. and Robert Woods, Robinson is ranked No. 2 in Los Angeles against Cooper Kupp, and he should make the most of it.
