The full list of top rookie and veteran WRs has now been released, and there are no surprises.

Starting with veterans, Davante Adams of the Green Bay Packers leads the way with his 99 rating that puts him in the elusive 99 Club. DeAndre Hopkins of the Arizona Cardinals and Tyreek Hill of the Kansas City Chiefs following with a 98 OVR rating.
