For instance, let's say that the Detroit Lions are playing the Kansas City Chiefs.

The players with the best odds to have the 1st reception of the game might look like this:

Amon-Ra St. Brown, +500
Skyy Moore, +800
Marquez Valdes-Scantling, +900
Sam LaPorta, +1000
Jahmyr Gibbs, +1200

These odds aren't surprising, as they include the top pass catchers that will be participating in the game.

Antoine Green, +5000
James Winchester, +5000
James Mitchell, +5500
Jason Cabinda, +6500
Craig Reynolds, +7000
