Imagine how sick I was as a Maryland alum and Ravens fan watching us pass on him 5 times. lol.

Diggs was known to hang with the wrong crowd in the DMV. It was good for him to get out of the area and beat the concerns about him, but they did exist back then. Big part of why he fell.

I would put him above Chase as well in my top 5. I think Chase is more boom or bust (which is ironic because I also feel Diggs is very boom or bust), but they're very close.

Once you get past the obvious top 3 of Hill/Jefferson/Kupp, I think a lot of the next 4-5 guys are interchangeable really.

Adams is absolutely in that group as well. He's cooking #1 corners, most recently Surtain. His worst week was coming off a terrible flu, but he's been elite all year.

How is this even a discussion?

Kupp, Jefferson, Diggs, Adams, Hill are my cemented top 5 in some order right now.

Leaving off Chase feels dirty though. Hopkins after his injury last year and suspension this year is making his way back up there too.

Diggs hasn’t been boom or bust for the Bills. For the Vikings he definitely was though. He just gets fed here.

Chase is getting underrated in this thread.

Who is underrating him? Flaccoseagulls said he's boom or bust, and that's about it. If he was healthy and playing he'd be getting talked about more, but I don't really think anyone is underrating him, just like Hopkins before he got healthy. It's not crazy to think Chase is the 6th or 7th best WR even if he was healthy. League is stocked with studs right now. AJ Brown might not even be in the top 10, and he's a stud #1. That's why it's better to just put these guys in tiers.

Chase is an elite physical talent but he lacks the super technical nuances that guys like Diggs, Adams, and Kupp have. It’ll probably come in time, but those guys are so specific in every part of their body control when it comes to running their routes and their releases. 

So yeah, my top 5 is probably the same as everyone else’s, with some order of Diggs/Kupp/Hill/JJ/Adams. 6-10 and 11-15 is a lot harder than 1-5.

Not a huge gripe, but AJ Brown is S Tier imo and Waddle should probably already be in that talk as well if he's not already. 

Lets look at Yards Per Route Run for a quick second that better helps guage a receivers productivity.

There is 6 players with above 2.5 YPRR. AJ is 6th. The 5 ahead are St. Brown, Waddle, Jefferson, Diggs, and Hill.

In 2021 his season was kinda derailed a bit by injury, but AJ was still 5th in YPRR with only Kupp, Samuel, Adams, and AB ahead of him.

In 2020 he was 2nd in YPRR only behind Davante Adams and just barely over Justin Jefferson.

I really don't think AJ should be punished cause he's missed a few games here and there with some injuries and played in two of the most run heavy offenses over the last half decade in the Titans with Henry and the Eagles with Hurts and arguably the best OL/OL coach in the league. If AJ went to a bunch of other situations he would be putting up bonkers stats like some of the other "top WRs". To me AJ can drop some dumb easy passes, but dude is a freak of nature and he's elite at beating man coverage like its backed by analytics and the eye test. If you wanna say you need to see a bit more like a good playoff run like Chase last year, then I can understand that, but if AJ isn't elite already he's probably the next one up.

I can't jive with the Deebo disrespect (across all platforms). He was the most dominant player in the league last year, bar none. He's still that guy and will be for a good while.

Give me him before anyone else.

While I agree Deebo is dominant at times and a top level talent, he has one game over 100 total yards this year. Which is also crazy since all the injuries to the 49ers backfield, you'd think he would've become more of a weapon. 

I need to see last year for a stretch of time before I take him before anyone else.
