NFL 3 Stars For Week 5: Wide Receivers

Wide Receiver has become the position in the NFL with the most superstars in recent years, and on the weekend, that was on complete display, with at least ten performances that would usually make this list, but as usual, we will narrow it down to just three. The league has become a pass first offence and so many incredible athletes have benefited from that, with points being put up at an amazing level around the league, and this week, these three names were the ones that stepped up and helped their QB in the best way possible. 

3. Davante Adams

Stat line: 3 Catches, 124 Yards, 2 Touchdowns.

Davante Adams is widely regarded as the best wide receiver in the NFL, and while the Raiders team has been disappointing since trading for him in the off-season, he's been every bit as good as advertised, and hasn't suffered at all by leaving Aaron Rodgers. The team needs to take advantage of the great numbers he's putting up, but if Adams can keep doing what he's doing, this team should no doubt begin stringing some wins together. 

2. Tyler Lockett

Stat line: 5 Catches, 102 Yards, 2 Touchdowns.

When Russell Wilson was traded to the Broncos, many expected this offence to become stagnant and suffer, but with a rejuvenated Geno Smith at the helm, this team has been incredibly fun to watch, and we've continued to see amazing performances from these Seahawks wide receivers. Last week it was D.K. Metcalf, and this week, Tyler Lockett took his chance to show why he is one of the most underrated players in the NFL, as he almost willed this team to victory over the New Orleans Saints. 

1. Gabe Davis

Stat line: 3 Catches, 171 Yards, 2 Touchdowns. 

At their best, the Buffalo Bills offence is downright unstoppable, and that's exactly what they were on Sunday, as they decimated a lifeless Pittsburgh Steelers squad, and when Gabe Davis is making plays, this team could be unbeatable. On Sunday, Davis had just 3 catches, but went for 171 yards and 2 Touchdowns, and Allen continued making his case for MVP, and with his standout performance, Davis has solidified himself as one of, if not the best No. 2 wide receivers in the NFL.
