The 10 Best Wide Receivers From the 2015 NFL Season

Antonio Brown was great again, but was he the NFL's top receiver based on analytics?

With the 2015 regular season in the books, it’s time to look back and evaluate the performances of the best players in the game.

Today, we’ll be looking at the top 10 wide receivers from the season. We’ll be using Net Expected Points (NEP) as our guide, specifically Reception NEP.

If you’re new to numberFire, NEP is our signature metric. NEP measures a player’s output versus expectations, based on a variety of factors dating back to 2000.
