The clock is ticking down, you are trailing by six and facing a fourth and long scenario that has toppled headfirst into now or never territory. The ball is going into the end zone, but who do you want on the end of it?
Depending on where your allegiances lie, various names will be thrown into that melting pot. Some will side with jet-heeled and high-leaping wide receivers, while others may favor the brute force of a tight end wrecking ball that destroys everything in its path.
Whatever your preference, the ultimate goal is to find a safe pair of hands and see two feet return to earth in bounds. Achieve that and the wild celebrations can start, with carefully choreographed routines that have been kept up collective sleeves for occasions such as this broken out – smile for the camera!
Any side boasting the talent that can be relied upon to deliver in the big moments, when it really counts, will expect to go close in another compelling race towards Super Bowl LVI. Find yourself a touchdown machine and watch the Ws roll in.
As you would expect, cream is rising to the top in the scrap to complete the most receiving touchlines in 2021-22. At Space Casino, you can find a star-studded pool of performers leading a game-changing market. Unsurprisingly, Cooper Kupp heads the field at +255 in pursuit of a notable individual honor.

Given that the LA Rams receiver had pretty much swept the board through the opening 13 weeks of the regular season, that should come as no shock to the system. The first superstar to 100 receptions and 1,000 receiving yards has been a man on a mission.
Who else is in the mix?
Adam Thielen has been another go-to option this term, but the Minnesota Vikings are slipping out of play-off contention and that explains why he is no shorter than a +1200 shot for receiving glory.
Mike Evans has Tom Brady tossing spirals his way in Tampa, as the Buccaneers look to go back to back, and will earn favor with plenty at +560. He is the closest challenger to Kupp at present, with the chasing pack representing punts of various lengths.
There may, however, be plenty of value to be found there if teams get hot heading down the stretch and big numbers start to be posted. The Arizona Cardinals are going well again, with DeAndre Hopkins available at +1100, while Stefon Diggs (+1800) will be eager to ensure that a wobble from the Buffalo Bills becomes nothing more serious in a campaign that still promises plenty.

For anyone wanting to roll the dice a little harder than that, with enigmatic tight ends more their kind of thing, then there are a couple of men who know what it takes to go all the way that may make for intriguing long shots.
The Kansas City Chiefs are moving ominously through the gears – with Tyreek Hill a tempting +1000 offering on their books – and Travis Kelce is a big +4900 to top the receiving touchdowns chart. Fit-again Rob Gronkowski is available at the same price and history has taught us that a Brady-Gronk combination tends to find a way of getting things done.
