The NFL’s best wide receivers, No. 8: Brandon Marshall, Jets

The 10-year NFL veteran has topped 1,000 yards in eight of his seasons thus far, missing out only during an injury-plagued 2014 and his rookie season of 2006. Another big-bodied headache out wide, Marshall (6' 4", 229 lbs.) brings a swagger common to many of the receivers populating our list. He never was more productive than in 2015, when he hung 1,502 yards and 14 touchdowns on the board—no wonder he’s been pushing for Ryan Fitzpatrick’s return. As is becoming more and more common with typically outside WRs, Marshall also can thrive from the slot. He and Eric Decker share that trait.
