Best Free Agent Slot Receivers 2019

Forget the euphemisms… the 2019 free agent wide receiver group is BAD.

The main reason is because the 2015 draft class was absolutely pitiful. Most player drafted that year have just played out their rookie contract and are now looking for their first run at free agency.

Green used to be one of the best receivers in the NFL, but those days are long gone. Green can no longer stay healthy - he's played just one full season since 2015 - and he turns 32 in July, so even if he manages to see the field, it's unlikely we'll see him dominate like he used to. Just like that, some of the best slot-receiver options on the free-agent market were off the board. Cobb will be 29 when the 2019 season begins.Cole Beasley, 29.

While Amari Cooper was the cream of the crop of the 2015 wide receiver draft class, none of the other first round pass catchers panned out. In fact Cooper is the only 2015 first round receiver that surpassed 1,000 yards in a single season. Kevin White (7th overall), DeVante Parker (14th), Nelson Agholor (20th), Breshad Perriman (26th), and Phillip Dorsett (29th) are colossal busts considering where they were selected and their production through four years of NFL action. For every hidden gem like Jamison Crowder (fourth round pick) there were brutal picks like Dorial Green-Beckham (40th overall, two seasons in the NFL) or Devin Smith (37th overall, 10 catches in his career).

Sure there’s some veteran receivers on the list like Golden Tate or John Brown that will surely sign somewhere this offseason. But teams and fans alike need to temper expectation if wide receiver is an immediate need for your franchise considering this talent pool leaves a lot to be desired.

Golden Tate, 31 years old. Most recent contract was five year $31 million contract. Played for Lions and Eagles in 2019. Tate was traded to Philadelphia midway through the 2018 season and while he did catch the game winning touchdown in the team’s Wild-Card game against the Bears, he never really caught on or seemed to gel in the Philly Offense. From 2014-2017 Tate’s 2,736 yards after catch (YAC) was the highest in the league and he's led that category in three of the last five years. During that same time frame he was sixth in receptions and 10th in yards. In 2018, Tate caught 74 passed for 795 yards, the lowest mark since 2013. Do we chalk up Tate’s slide in production to being traded mid-season or perhaps the 31 year old has lost a step? One things for sure, there will be an NFL team with pen and contract in hand willing to risk it’s the former.

Demaryius Thomas, 31 years old. Cut before season in his five year deal. Most recently was paid $4.5 million for 2018 season but the Texans cut him for 2019 and saved $14 million. Thomas ruptured his Achilles and is at risk of missing the entire 2019 season and some question if he’ll play again. The former first round pick was traded from Denver to Houston in the middle of the 2018 season. 2018 was the first time since 2012, Thomas didn’t have at least 80 catches and 900 yards. Before being traded to Houston, the Texans were 16th in Scoreabilityand 10th in Offensive Passer Rating. Thomas’s arrival in Houston helped alleviate the pressure from fellow wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins and gave QB DeShaun Watson another capable playmaker to target, as a result the team improved drastically in both Quality Stat categories, finishing the year 10th in Scoreability and 6th in Offensive Passer Rating. He’ll likely go unsigned until he’s fully recovered from the injury.

Randall Cobb, 29 years old. Played out a four year extension worth $40 million with the Packers. Cobb is now 29 years old and hasn’t played a full season since 2015. Speaking of 2015, that was the last time Cobb had over 70 yards, more than 660 yards, and more than five TDs in a season. It’s pretty clear Cobb’s best days are long gone. With just nine games under his belt in 2019 it’s difficult to calculate how much of an impact Cobb had on the team’s passing efficiency, but considering it was a down year for the Packers as a whole, it’s not likely the result Cobb truthers would like to believe. The Packers finished 18th in Scoreability and 16th in Real QB Ratingin 2018 which compared to their ranking of second and fourth in 2016 (Aaron Rodgers played just seven games in 2017) is a major downfall for this once loaded offensive unit. Bringing in new, younger blood at receiver and keeping Rodgers off his butt should help revive this offense but will come at the cost of not resigning Cobb.

Adam Humphries, 26, Buccaneers. A restricted free agent in 2018, Tampa Bay put a second round tender on the team’s slot receiver. Humphries played under a one year, $2.9 million contract and will now get a multi-year, big money contract somewhere in 2019. Perhaps that’s back in Tampa Bay where he caught 76 passes for 816 yards and five touchdowns in 2018 or somewhere else that needs a consistent pass catcher with over 72 percent catch percentage in back-to-back seasons. Considering he’s just 26 and the consistent increase of production, Humphries should do very well in the free agent marketplace.

Jamison Crowder, 26 years old. Coming off his rookie, four-year, $2.8 million contract, all with the Washington Redskins. Crowder was drafted in the fourth round of 2015 and had his best season in 2016 where he caught 67 passes for 847 yards and seven touchdowns. Crowder struggled with injury problems in 2018 and only played nine games. He posted career lows across the board with just 29 catches, 388 yards, and two scores. Crowder is a 5’9 possession receiver but at just 25 years old and a proclivity to properly run routes, Crowder won’t spend too much time in the open market. With Crowder injured for half the season and Alex Smith landing on Injured Reserve it’s not wonder the Redskins finished 28th in Scoreability.

John Brown, 28 years old. Signed a one-year, $5 million deal with the Ravens after spending the first four years of his career with the Cardinals. Played well when Joe Flacco was under center for Baltimore but Brown’s stats fell off when Lamar Jackson took over under center. Brown has always been a deep threat and took advantage of Flacco’s big arm but Jackson just didn’t take as many chances downfield. Still, Brown was able to post the second best stats of his career as he gained 715 yards and scored five times. If the Buccaneers part ways with DeSean Jackson, Brown may be a suitable replacement considering he’s familiar with Bruce Arians from their days together in Arizona.

Chris Hogan 30. A college lacrosse player transformed into a wide receiver, goes on to win two Super Bowls while catching passes from one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time. But every fairytale comes to an end and this may be it for Hogan. Hogan finished with career highs in 2016 including a league leading 17.9 yards per catch (YPC). That same year the Patriots were 3rd in Real Passing Yards Per Attempt ,their first time inside the Top 5 since 2011. But Hogan’s YPC dropped to 12.9 in 2017 and 15.2 in 2018 despite seeing nearly the same amount of targets. Even though the Pats are in need of a functional wide receiver, it seems Hogan’s days with the reigning champs are coming to an end.

Best Receivers 2019 Nfl

Donte Moncrief, 26. A third round pick in 2014, Moncrief played his first four seasons with the Colts before signing a one year, $9.6 million contract with the Jaguars. It was a colossal waste of money for a Jacksonville team that finished 32nd in Scoreabilityand 28th in Offensive Passer Rating.Moncrief hasn’t surpassed 65 yards or 725 yards since 2015.

Cole Beasley, 30. Undrafted out of college, Beasley worked his way into the Cowboys starting lineup and just wrapped up a four-year, $13 million contract. He’s been vocal this offseason about wanting to be more involved in a team’s game play, but it would help if he was more available, as he’s missed eight games the last two years. He’s certainly a sure-handed slot receiver capable of catching 60-80 passes in a season, but Beasley needs to find the right system to take advantage of his talents and that system might not be the one in Dallas.

Tyrell Williams, 27. His one year, $2.9 million contract with the Chargers came to an end this year and thanks to the emergence of first round pick Mike Williams, this Williams will likely seek employment elsewhere. Considering he’s jut 27 and is a proven 1,000 yard receiver, Tyrell Williams may get that big receiver contract that surprises most of the media. His 15.9 yards per catch was ninth in the NFL for receivers with over 40 receptions. It’s one of the reasons the Chargers offense took home Top 5 rankings in our Quality Stat categories including Real Passing Yards Per Attempt, Offensive Passer Rating, andReal QB Rating.

Free agent receivers that were first and second round picks in 2015:

Kevin White, 27 years old. seventh overall pick. Missed entire rookie year. Played four games in 2016, one in 2017 and nine in 2018. Never had more than 20 catches in a season.

Breshad Perriman, 25. Drafted by the Ravens with the 26th pick, Perriman missed his entire rookie season with a knee injury. He’s never reach 500 yards or more than 35 receptions in a single season. He was cut by the Ravens heading into the 2018 season, signed and then released by the Redskins and finished out the year as a member of the Cleveland Browns.

Phillip Dorsett, 26. Drafted by the Colts with the 29th pick, Dorsett was traded to the Patriots in 2017. His single-season career highs came in 2016, when he caught 33 passes for 528 yards.

Devin Funchess, 25. The 41st overall selection in 2015, Funchess was expected to be paired with fellow big bodied receiver Kelvin Benjamin as part of Cam Newton’s core receivers. Instead, Benjamin tore his ACL and then was traded, putting Funchess in the driver’s seat as the team’s top receiver. He had one quality season in 2017, when he caught 63 passes for 840 yards and eight touchdowns.
