Every single team in the Conference Championships features at least one elite receiver on the roster.
Name a receiving category … LA’s Cooper Kupp probably led the league in it, if he didn’t shatter the record altogether.
Kansas City’s Tyreek Hill has the third-most catches in football (111), while San Francisco’s Deebo Samuel and Cincinnati’s Ja’Marr Chase are No. 1 and 2 in yards per catch (17.9 and 17.7).
Will one of those top-tier playmakers have the most receiving yards on Sunday, or is there a sleeper down the list?

*Odds via FanDuel, as of Saturday afternoon
Kupp’s stat line is simply absurd as the Rams stay alive: 145 catches, 1,947 yards and 16 touchdowns.
San Francisco is 2-0 against Los Angeles this season, but the defense has yet to stop Kupp. He has brought down 18 catches on 20 targets for 240 yards and one score against the divisional rival.
He was also the leading receiver in both contests.
Samuel, meanwhile, is a human cheat code with a knack for the big play in San Francisco’s offense. However, his teammate, Brandon Aiyuk, has actually led the 49ers in receiving yards three of the last five games.
Chase has been good for 85.6 yards per game in his rookie campaign, despite a seven-game stretch mid-season where he put up more than 52 just once.
He’s been the Bengals’ top receiver in each of the last three games with Joe Burrow under center, including a mind-bending 266-yard performance against the Chiefs in Week 17.
