Best Answer

The receiver plays multiple roles in football. The first role is catching the ball when it is thrown anywhere near him, whether it is a good or bad pass. The second role is to block for the runner or for a receiver after the ball is caught. The third role is being a decoy, running a route that is meant to pull defenders away from another receiver that is running a primary route.
