NFL Three Stars For Week 9: Wide Receiver

The wide receiver position is the one stacked with the most superstars in the entire NFL, and each and every week, we see different players stepping up and putting on a show, and unlike other week, the ones that stood out among the rest were the elite of the elite. Once again, narrowing it down to three players is a tough choice, because it seems each and every NFL team these days have at least one or two star receivers, but this week, these three were the best of the best. 

3. Justin Jefferson 

Stat line: 7 catches, 115 yards, 1 Touchdown.

Justin Jefferson has been a superstar from the moment he stepped foot on an NFL field, and with 3,000 yards in his first two years, he's on pace for a career year, and with a 115 yards and 1 Touchdown game in the win over Washington, he's right on track. At this point in time, Jefferson is unquestionably a top-5 receiver in the NFL, and if he continues performances like this, we will be calling him No. 1 sooner, rather than later. 

2. Tyreek Hill

Stat line: 7 catches, 143 yards, 1 Touchdown. 

Tyreek Hill is on a historic pace through 9 games, and if he continues to play the way he does, Calvin Johnson's yardage record will be shattered, and alongside Jaylen Waddle, the Dolphins passing attack is downright unstoppable. Hill has always been a star, but now that he's away from Patrick Mahomes, he can prove that he's in a league of his own, and at this rate, there's a very good chance he finishes the year as the NFL's best wide receiver. 

1. Davante Adams

Stat line: 10 catches, 146 yards, 2 Touchdowns. 

Davante Adams had one of the worst games of his career a week ago in the 24-0 loss to New Orleans, and it showed in this one, as he looked like a man possessed early in this one, ending up with two huge Touchdown grabs and 146 yards overall. The team still unfortunately blew another lead of 17 or more points, and while the Raiders offence as a whole have been a major disappointment in 2022, Adams has once again been one of the best receivers in the NFL.
