Fitzgerald is our highest rated Wide Receiver and he is second all-time in Receiving Yards, behind only Jerry Rice.  To meet the MPA in Touchdowns he only needs nine more, which he is more than capable of meeting but that second and third First Team All-Pro seems unlikely.  That won’t matter as he is a Hall of Famer right now.

There will be a lot of eyes on Antonio Brown as he enters his first year in Oakland.  Brown has been a Pro Bowl selection the last six years and he is well above the AV/G for his position.

Stats

  • Games 130 (-93.2)
  • Approximate Value 103 (-49.8)
  • AV/G 0.7923 (+0.1342)

One of the most exciting players in the NFL remains the primary target for Matt Ryan and Jones has a spectacular AV/G.  He is on a five-year Pro Bowl streak and is on pace to make the other MPA stats.

Stats

  • Games 111 (-112.2)
  • Approximate Value 102 (-50.8)
  • AV/G 0.9189 (+0.2608)
  • Pro Bowls 6 (-1.2)

  • Receiving Yards 10731 (-4056.6)
  • Receiving Touchdowns 51 (-73.8)
  • Receptions 698 (-343.4)
This looks like it is the end for Marshall and if it is, he falls short in every MPA metric though coming close to many of them.  One more year on the gridiron would really help Marshall.

Stats

  • Games 179 (-44.2)
  • Approximate Value 105 (-47.8)
  • AV/G 0.5866 (-0.0715)
  • Pro Bowls 6 (-1.2)

  • Receiving Touchdowns 83 (-41.8)

A.J. Green was injured in training camp, which will take him out of half of the season.  This will definitely hurt as he can’t possibly make a First Team All-Pro this year, an accolade that would be huge for his cause.  He is not likely to climb this year and could actually fall depending on when he returns.

Stats

  • Games 111 (-112.2)
  • Approximate Value 80 (-72.8)
  • AV/G 0.7207 (+0.0626)

A member of the 10,000 Yard Receiving Club, Jackson has to take the path of a compiler as he was close to the top tier of Wide Receivers, but never really was one.  His last Pro Bowl was in 2013, but he still has something left in the tank in his return to the Eagles.

Stats

  • Games 153 (-70.2)
  • Approximate Value 90 (-62.8)
  • AV/G 0.5882 (-0.0699)

While Hilton has yet to be a First Team All-Pro, he is over the AV/G for his MPA.  If he maintains his current pace, he will exceed the 10,000 Yard Receiving mark in 2020.

Stats

  • Games 108 (-115.2)
  • Approximate Value 72 (-80.8)
  • AV/G 0.6666 (+0.0085)

The attention that DeAndre Hopkins has received has not matched his gridiron production despite that he has been a First Team All-Pro the last two seasons, including a 1,572 Yard Season last year.  He is definitely capable of duplicating his recent success.

Stats

  • Games 95 (-128.2)
  • Approximate Value 57 (-95.8)
  • AV/G 0.6000 (-0.0581)
  • Pro Bowls 3 (-4.2)

  • Receiving Touchdowns 47 (-77.8)
  • Receptions 528 (-513.4)
OBJ’s three Pro Bowls were in his first three seasons and all eyes are on him as he joins the Cleveland Browns.  This could be a huge year for the enigmatic Wide Receiver.

Stats

  • Games 59 (-164.2)
  • Approximate Value 45 (-107.8)
  • AV/G 0.7627 (+0.1046)
  • Pro Bowls 3 (-4.2)
  • First Team All-Pros 0 (-2.4)
  • Receiving Yards 5476 (-9311.6)
  • Receiving Touchdowns 44 (-80.8)
  • Receptions 390 (-651.4)
While this seems early, Hill has been incredible on the field with 2 First Team All-Pro Selections, has been a Pro Bowl in all three of his seasons and has an AV/G over 0.2100 over the MPA.  If his off-field issues continue, it could affect him in the future.

Stats

  • Games 132 (-91.2)
  • Approximate Value 78 (-74.8)
  • AV/G 0.8723 (+0.2142)
  • Pro Bowls 3 (-4.2)
  • First Team All-Pros 2 (-0.4)
  • Receiving Yards 3255 (-11532.6)
  • Receiving Touchdowns 25 (-99.8)
  • Receptions 223 (-818.4)
Thomas’ stats have been gradually regressing and he enters his first season with the New England Patriots on the IR.  The 10,000 Yard mark is within his sight but that might be his last major milestone and it is no guarantee at this point.

Stats

  • Games 132 (-91.2)
  • Approximate Value 78 (-74.8)
  • AV/G 0.5910 (-0.0671)
  • Pro Bowls 4 (-3.2)

  • Receiving Touchdowns 62 (-62.8)
  • Receptions 688 (-353.4)
Only a five-year pro, Jarvis Landry has been named to the Pro Bowl the last four of them.  He has however never been a First or Second Team All-Pro as of yet. 

Stats

  • Games 80 (-143.2)
  • Approximate Value 40 (-112.8)
  • AV/G 0.5000 (-0.1581)
  • Pro Bowls 4 (-3.2)
  • First Team All-Pros 0 (-2.4)
  • Receiving Yards 5014 (-9773.6)
  • Receiving Touchdowns 26 (-98.8)
  • Receptions 481 (-560.4)
Edelman is nowhere close to any MPA, nor is he likely to finish above one when his career is over, but what he does have is three Super Bowl rings and is second all-time in playoff receiving yards.  That has generated a buzz around him as a possibility for Canton.

Stats

  • Games 115 (-108.2)
  • Approximate Value 59 (-93.8)
  • AV/G 0.5130 (-0.1451)
  • Pro Bowls 0 (-7.2)
