    If Netflix Brings Back ‘Receiver’ for Season 2, Here Are 5 Wideouts They Should Feature

    A.J. Brown and CeeDee Lamb headline this list of wide receivers that we'd love to see Netflix feature in Season 2 of "Receiver."

    Justin Jefferson, Amon-Ra St. Brown, Davante Adams, Deebo Samuel Sr., and George Kittle have been in the spotlight recently as the subjects of Netflix’s new series, “Receiver.”

    These elite receivers have eight total first-team All-Pro nominations and even an Offensive Player of the Year award among them.

    It’s unclear if Netflix will shoot a second season of “Receiver” or highlight a different position in 2025. If they decide to follow more wide receivers, who should be featured next?

    Which WRs Should Netflix Feature in Season 2 of ‘Receiver?’

    While many analysts consider the likes of Jefferson, Adams, and St. Brown the best receivers in the game, there are many other wideouts that Netflix could focus on should they produce a second season of the show in its current format.

    Whether it be aging players still at the top of their game or young players just getting their first taste of the big leagues, there is no shortage of players the streaming platform could target. Who should Netflix showcase next?

    A.J. Brown, Philadelphia Eagles

    Netflix wants to highlight elite receivers, and few wideouts have been as dominant as A.J. Brown in recent years.

    Since being traded to the Philadelphia Eagles, Brown has been one of the most complete wideouts in the NFL. He has totaled 194 catches with 2,952 yards and 18 touchdowns in his first two years with the Eagles while leading them to the Super Bowl in 2022 and a playoff berth the following year.

    Brown isn’t afraid to speak his mind, which could make him a good fit as well.

    CeeDee Lamb, Dallas Cowboys

    If Netflix prioritizes the best receiver in the game, Dallas Cowboys receiver CeeDee Lamb belongs in the conversation.

    Statistically, few receivers were as productive as Lamb in 2023. Last season, he finished third in Offensive Player of the Year voting, and he led the league in catches en route to a first-team All-Pro finish.

    Lamb joining Brown in Season 2 of “Receiver” would be great for the streaming platform. It would allow the show to focus on the NFC East rivalry between the Eagles and Cowboys, too.

    Keenan Allen, Chicago Bears

    Of all the aging wide receivers in the game, few have been as consistent as new Chicago Bears wide receiver Keenan Allen.

    The 32-year-old is coming off a 100-catch season with the Los Angeles Chargers, and now he will be playing with No. 1 overall pick Caleb Williams.

    In addition to producing on the field, Allen is a terrific leader and locker-room presence. It would be fascinating to see how he’s helping Williams and No. 9 overall pick Rome Odunze as they transition to the NFL.

    George Pickens, Pittsburgh Steelers

    Following the trade of Diontae Johnson, George Pickens is the top receiver on the Pittsburgh Steelers moving forward. Pittsburgh may have questions surrounding the quarterback position in 2025, but Pickens would be an excellent choice for “Receiver” in Season 2.

    First off, he’ll be searching for a new contract next offseason. Also, it would be interesting to watch Pickens get acclimated to his new quarterback and learn Arthur Smith’s offense.

    Pickens is one of the NFL’s up-and-coming wide receivers, so his inclusion would make sense. And the Steelers are known for having a passionate fan base, which would also interest Netflix.

    Malik Nabers, New York Giants

    Marvin Harrison Jr. would be an interesting player to follow as he starts his NFL career in Arizona, but it seems too perfect that “Hard Knocks” is already in East Rutherford, N.J. Netflix can continue that momentum and target New York Giants receiver Malik Nabers for the second season of “Receiver.”

    Nabers was an All-American at LSU last season, and all eyes are on him as he enters his rookie year with the Giants. It would be enticing to see how he handles the bright lights of New York and makes the transition to the pros as Daniel Jones’ No. 1 option.
