Will Kenny Golladay make our list?

The Detroit Lions enjoyed a pretty decent season from their wide receivers in 2019. Kenny Golladay earned himself a Pro Bowl nod, leading the NFL with his 11 touchdowns. Marvin Jones Jr. wasn’t far behind with nine scores of his own, despite missing the final three games of the season. Even Danny Amendola had a solid year, nearly setting career highs in receiving yards (678) and yards per catch (10.9).

But do any of them belong in the top-10 conversation? Golladay appears to be a rising star in the NFL and 2019 could just be the tip of the iceberg. Has he already established himself as a top-10 receiver or does he still have to become a better overall receiver before making those kind of claims?

The PODcast crew got together and created a master list of the top 10 receivers in the NFL. Myself, Hamza Baccouche, Ryan Mathews, John Whiticar, Jerry Mallory, Mansur Shaheen, Chris Perfett and Alex Reno all made top-10 lists, and then we created a master list based on the averages of said list.

Did Kenny Golladay make the list? Which Tampa Bay receiver is the best? Who came out No. 1 overall?

We answer that on this week’s PODcast. Listen below.

After we rank the top 10 receivers, we answer your questions about the Lions, including:

  • Will D’Andre Swift catch 40 passes this year?
  • Which five Lions players would you protect from being poached in a theoretical expansion draft?
  • What will Marvin Hall’s role be in 2020?
  • Should we be concerned about T.J. Hockenson’s blocking issues?
  • Surprise cuts we could see in August.

Listen to the PODcast here, and don’t forget to give us a review on Apple Podcasts!
