Who has the best 1-2 punch at receiver in the NFL?


Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has kept the pressure on himself, and his teammates, by boasting about the problems the wideouts will give defenses in 2017. Which inspired this question of the day for Wednesday’s PFT Live: Who has the best 1-2 combination at receiver in the NFL?

Former Colts punter Pat McAfee joins the show again, and we’ll chime in with our views on the question. Right after we take a look at your suggestions and, um, aggregate the best ones.

In lieu of a poll question, make your selection in the comments, state your case, and then tune in on Wednesday morning at 6:00 a.m. ET on NBC Sports Radio, with the simulcast starting on NBCSN at 7:00 a.m. ET.

    This year it will be Landry and Parker.

  2. therealraider says: Jun 21, 2017 12:05 AM

    The Raiders. Cooper and Crab. RN4L!

  3. shabazkilla says: Jun 21, 2017 12:31 AM

    Evans and Jackson have the potential to be special this year.

  4. tb12soundslikeavd says: Jun 21, 2017 12:32 AM

    Again, it’s Cooper and Crabtree. Of course it helps to have a great QB.

  5. eljefedelmundo says: Jun 21, 2017 12:45 AM

    Maybe the Saints. Even withou Cooks…

  6. Mike Tomlin says: Jun 21, 2017 12:58 AM

    Ab – Bryant when both are focused.

  7. JameisWillTakeUsToThePromiseLand says: Jun 21, 2017 1:06 AM

    Toss up between DT and Emmanuel or Mike Evans and D Jax

  8. steelchampions says: Jun 21, 2017 1:15 AM


    TBD…..Brown / Bryant

  9. dway096 says: Jun 21, 2017 1:15 AM

    Mike Evans and DJax, good luck D coordinators, sleep tight.

  10. muthafknzeus says: Jun 21, 2017 1:52 AM

    Cooper and Crabtree, with Carr they haven’t even hit their ceiling.

  11. Anicra says: Jun 21, 2017 2:06 AM

    When the chips are down – Baldwin and Kearse can be absolute money. Kearse is like I drop some of easy early in the game, however if you need a money shot in 4th or OT…He has crazy luck/skill/

    Brown and Bryant
    (Under and Over Wrs)
    Cooks andEdelman
    (speed and Nimble Wrs)

  12. overthedwaynebowe says: Jun 21, 2017 2:14 AM

    Raiders…hands down…but now the Patriots have Cook so Edelman and Cooks could easily rival them

  13. heightstexan says: Jun 21, 2017 2:39 AM

    If William Fuller can step it up and improve his ability to catch the ball in his second year Hopkins and Fuller might be a surprise this year if Savage steps it up like I expect him to.

  14. dabears2485 says: Jun 21, 2017 4:06 AM


    It’s not their fault they don’t have a QB.

  15. Just a Fan says: Jun 21, 2017 5:15 AM

    How is this a question? Pittsburgh for sure…Antonio Brown and any of the studs from the Steelers receiver stable.

  16. handsofsteelheartofstone says: Jun 21, 2017 5:29 AM

    A.b. and martavis.

    Not even close

  17. jstew0103 says: Jun 21, 2017 5:43 AM

    Its tough to argue with what the Giants will be throwing at defenses, but my pick would be the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Mike Evans’ size and strength coupled with desean jackson’s speed and elusiveness will be hard to game plan for.

  18. blowfishes says: Jun 21, 2017 5:48 AM

    I’m a Vikings fan yet will purchase the Giants’ Beckham and Marshall as the most feared duo at receiver on one team.

  19. philvil41 says: Jun 21, 2017 5:54 AM

    Cooper and Crabtree will be # 1

  20. brohamma says: Jun 21, 2017 6:03 AM

    Edelman and Cooks.

    Those two will, likely, be the highest drafted receivers from the same team in the upcoming fantasy football draft season. Look at the others people have posted and then ask yourself if you would HONESTLY draft someone like “Crab” before either Edelman or Cooks.

  21. unfairbutbalanced says: Jun 21, 2017 6:46 AM

    Pittsburgh’s Killer B’s of Brown and Martavis Bryant aren’t too shabby. When you consider that JuJu Smith-Schuster, Sammie Coates, and Eli Rodgers are on deck … this could be the scariest receiving corps in the league

  22. pastabelly says: Jun 21, 2017 7:31 AM

    Cooks & Edelman

  23. gibbstastic says: Jun 21, 2017 8:12 AM

    OBJ and the Field Goal Net?

  24. excusemewhileiwhipthisoutagain says: Jun 21, 2017 8:15 AM

    Steelers Brown and Bryant.

  25. elyasm says: Jun 21, 2017 8:15 AM

    At receiver alone, it’s hard to beat Julio & Sanu, but if we were to include TEs, then I would give it to Gronk & Cooks.

  26. factschecker says: Jun 21, 2017 8:21 AM

    Julian Gronkelman and Branrob Grooks.

  27. manzoa says: Jun 21, 2017 8:26 AM

    Get real….AB and Martavis Bryant.

  28. kozy21 says: Jun 21, 2017 8:31 AM

    Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant.

  29. bucjordan says: Jun 21, 2017 9:17 AM

    Tough. Lots of great pairs. AB/Martavis Bryant, OBJ/Marshall, Evans/Djax.

    On pure talent I have to go AB/Martavis but I might stick with Evans and Djax if I’m starting a team, based on character concerns.

  30. tangysizzl says: Jun 21, 2017 9:18 AM

    With 26 TDs and 2200 plus yards between them last year, Jordy Nelson and Devante Adams at least deserve a mention.

    Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant.

    Julio Jones and anyone else.

  31. LakefrontLegend says: Jun 21, 2017 9:20 AM

    OAK, NE, TB, PIT (in no particular order)

  32. remembertheagenda says: Jun 21, 2017 12:31 PM

    Colts had two league leaders at WR.

    Stats don’t lie.

  33. vicnocal says: Jun 21, 2017 2:34 PM

    I’m going to go Demaryius Thomas & Emmanuel Sanders by a nose over Antonio Brown & Martavis Bryant because Bryant has been gone for so long.

    Cooper & Crabtree
    Hilton & Moncrief
    Beckham & Marshall

  34. The Phantom Stranger says: Jun 21, 2017 2:35 PM

    Not the best duo but maybe the duo with the best value in terms of production relative to what it cost to acquire them would be Diggs (5th round) and Thielen (UDFA).

    Evans and Jackson would have to be the best overall but Brown and Bryant would be up there if you can trust Bryant.

  35. brohamma says: Jun 21, 2017 3:53 PM

    Martavis Bryant has only a 48% reception rate people. Saying that he could possibly be part of “the best 1-2 punch at receiver in the NFL” is a joke. As has been mentioned.. “if you can trust him;” and even Ben’s recent comment lends creadence to that.

  36. jim699 says: Jun 23, 2017 12:06 PM

    Cooper & Crabtree don’t even rate.
