In football, the wide receiver catches the ball, thrown by the quarterback and then runs toward the end zone in an attempt to score a touchdown or at least get a first down. If, however, the coach signals for a running play-which shows that the running back will be handed the football-the wide recievers will block the defender/s in front of him from trying to tackle the running back.
That is what a wide receiver does.
Line up on the outside with two to three on average per play. They run different routes up across the field trying to get open for a pass from the quarterback on a passing play, and block for a running play.
The wide receiver's main job is to run downfield and get into a position so that the quarterback can throw him the ball, he can catch it, and hopefully gain extra yardage running with the ball after the catch. He will sometimes be asked to run the ball such as on an end-around or reverse play, and on run downs many teams expect their receivers to block (though few excel at it).
they catch the ball,block, and sometimes rush, or on some football games they line up as the quarterback in the wildcat formation
