In only his second year, Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery (1,109 receiving yards) has quickly established himself as one of the league’s best —and also cheapest wide receiving threats when looking at productivity vs. salary.

While Jeffery only will pull in 9.8 percent of the salary the Texans’ Andre Johnson will be paid this year ($10,527,918 cap hit), he’s caught the same number of touchdowns (5) and is within a catch or two of overtaking Johnson for the third spot in receiving yards.
