Cooper Kupp the Favorite for Most Receptions

Kupp was the NFL MVP in 2021 and the Rams are convinced he will return to that form. Kupp caught a league-high 145 balls that season and helped the Rams win the Super Bowl.

Despite being limited to nine games last season, Kupp still had outstanding numbers as he finished with 75 receptions for 812 and six touchdowns. The Rams were just 3-6 with Kupp in the lineup but then lost six of their last eight games to finish 5-12. It was the most losses ever for a defending Super Bowl champion.

The Rams are confident they can return to playoff contention with quarterback Matthew Stafford. He also sat out the last eight games with an elbow injury.

There is no question that Kupp will again be Stafford’s favorite target again in 2023. The Rams’ wide receiving corps is thin beyond Kupp with Van Jefferson, Ben Skowronek and DeMarcus Robinson – who was signed as a free agent in the offseason.

Chase, Jefferson Next on the Board

The Cincinnati Bengals’ Ja’Marr Chase is the second choice of the oddsmakers at +600.

Chase has been selected to the Pro Bowl in each of his two NFL seasons. He had 81 receptions in 2021 in helping the Bengals to the Super Bowl. Chase followed that with 87 catches in 12 games last season while missing a month because of a hip injury.

Injured at midseason, Chase came back for the stretch run of the regular season then had 20 receptions in three postseason games. The Bengals lost to the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game.

The Minnesota Vikings’ Justin Jefferson had an NFL-leading 128 receptions last season and is third on the board this year at +650. He has missed just four games in his three-year career and increased his receptions total from 88 as a rookie in 2020 to 108 in 2021 to his league-high figure last season.

Jefferson has quarterback Kirk Cousins’ utmost trust and will be the Vikings’ No. 1 receiving target again this season. The Vikings lost wide receiver Adam Thielen to the Carolina Panthers in free agency, but first-round draft pick Justin Addison from USC is talented enough to take some of opposing defenses’ focus away from Jefferson.

Who to Bet On for Most NFL Receptions?

One could point to Kupp and say he never had a 100-catch season or was selected to the Pro Bowl in his four seasons prior to 2021 along with his current +10000 NFL MVP odds that suggest he liekly won’t top the charts again in 2023/24. However, he showed last year before getting hurt that ’21 wasn’t a fluke year, and it is clear he has a strong connection with Stafford.

The chalk is the way to go here but it you’re looking for a longshot play to make a small wager, taking a +5000 flier on Philadelphia Eagles’ AJ Brown makes sense. Brown was targeted 145 times (88 receptions) in his first season with the Eagles last year and should be on the receiving end of many Jalen Hurts throws this fall.
