Welcome back to of our Madden NFL 17 Sleeper series and today we’re going to look at the guys who stretch the field and can put up a quick 6…the wide receivers. Let’s get to it.

  1. Sammy Coates (Pittsburgh Steelers)

23 Years Old
70 Overall
91 Speed
87 Catch In Traffic
84 Spec Catch

Coates is good at the 1 on 1 deep balls, beating the press and catching the tough passes with his 87 catch in traffic, but don’t expect to route anybody up with him for a while, that 58 route running is a lil ugly. He’s one of the best run blockers in the whole game, which makes sense considering the school he went to and turns into Jerome Bettis once the ball is in his hands with 73 truck and 78 stiff arm.

  1. Marqise Lee (Jacksonville Jaguars)

24 Years Old
71 Overall
88 Speed
92 Agility
87 Spec Catch

The USC product, at 6-0 has 87 spectacular catch so he’ll win more than his fair share of jump balls, and he can turn 5 yard routes into 10-15 yard gains with his yards after the catch ability highlighted by a 86 elusiveness and 87 juke move rating and for the guys out there that love blocking receivers he has 58 run block to start and to put into perspective the highest in the game is 65. Lee’s weakness is catching in traffic, but you can easily avoid that until considering the stuff he is good at off the bat

  1. Braxton Miller (Houston Texans)

23 Years Old
71 Overall
91 Speed
94 Agility
88 Elusiveness

You want to use Miller like a Percy Harvin type, because outside of the deep ball, he doesn’t have any standout receiver ratings. But you got to find a way to use that 88 elusiveness, 91 spin and 88 juke move. Long story short you just want to give him the ball quick and go.

  1. Nelson Agholor (Philadelphia Eagles)

23 Years Old
72 Overall
91 Speed
92 Agility
92 Juke Move

Agholor is another one who as far as possessing actual receiver skills is pretty average, but that’s the fun in getting guys like this, because he has the potential with his speed and yards after the catch ability to turn into a nice receiver.

  1. Sterling Shepard (New York Giants)

22 Years Old
74 Overall
93 Agility
84 Catch
82 Route Running

Shepard begins Madden 17 with 90 speed, 93 agility and some nice receiving ratings to start you off, with 81 spec catch, 81 catch in traffic and 82 route running.

  1. Devin Funchess (Carolina Panthers)

22 Years Old
74 Overall
88 Speed
86 Spec Catch
79 Catch In Traffic

Funchess does 2 things at a high rate especially for his age , beat the bump and win jump balls. But considering he has 84 stamina, we’ll probably be out the next 2 plays after said events happen.

  1. DaVante Adams (Green Bay Packers)

23 Years Old
75 Overall
93 Acceleration
85 Juke
88 Spec Catch

Adam’s is the slowest receiver on the list, but makes up for it by being a well-rounded receiving threat. He has 83 catch in traffic, 77 route running and 81 release….oh and 88 spectacular catch. He’ll play at a high rate well into his 30’s.

  1. Phillip Dorsett (Indianapolis Colts)

23 Years Old
72 Overall
96 Speed
96 Agility
94 Juke Move

Besides obviously being tied for the fastest receiver in the game, he has a 94 juke and 90 spin rating to potentially take even drag routes to the house.  Not to mention the 84 spec catch he has for some reason, so when you throw to him deep and the corner wasn’t burnt as much as you think, Dorsett can still come down with it.

  1. Jaelen Strong (Houston Texans)

22 Years Old
73 Overall
91 Speed
87 Catch In Traffic
87 Spec Catch

Jaelen Strong is an elite receiver right now. I mean how many 73 overall rated receivers have 87 catch in traffic and 87 spec catch? Depending on the Texans owner in your league, you could get Strong fairly cheap, because of their receiver depth or he’s going to tax you because he just watched this video too.

  1. Josh Doctson (Washington Redskins)

22 Years Old
77 Overall
89 Speed
88 Catch In Traffic
93 Spec Catch

Similar to Strong, Doctson is a dominant receiver day 1. I mean 93 spec catch, 88 catch in traffic and 76 route running and the dude is only 22 years old. He also has 87 juke and 84 elusiveness to beat defenders 1 on 1 underneath. So Day 1, Doctson at only 77 overall is one of the better receivers in Madden and considering he’s only 22 it make sense why he’s atop Sports Gamers Online Top 10 Sleeper Wide Receiver List.

I have been playing football games since 99’. All starting with the NFL Game Day demo and NFL Blitz on PlayStation, then I moved on to Madden for the next 5 years, where I really didn't know what I was going yet. I flirted with NFL 2K for a year, but have played Madden and NCAA (up until its demise last year) ever since steadily improving my game each year and developing a passion for the X’s and O’s part of football.
