Wide receivers

1. Vikings

The Vikings also lead the way at wide receiver. Justin Jefferson had a breakout rookie season and could quickly become one of the best players in the league at his position. After putting up 1,400 yards and seven touchdowns in his rookie year, Jefferson could be an All-Pro this season. Two-time Pro Bowler Adam Thielen is also an excellent receiver, giving the Vikings one of the best starting duos in football.

2. Packers

First-team All-Pro Davante Adams was the best wide receiver in the league last season and was simply unstoppable. With Randall Cobb and Amari Rodgers joining Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Allen Lazard this season, Green Bay has a talented, well-rounded wide receiver corps.

3. Bears

With former Pro Bowler Allen Robinson and second-year Darnell Mooney, the Bears have a good receiving duo at the top of the depth chart. They don’t have the same depth as the Packers, but the Bears are well set at wide receiver.

4. Lions

Losing Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones in the same offseason hurts the Lions. They’re in full rebuild mode and need to start over at receiver. They do have some talent with Breshad Perriman and Tyrell Williams, and they drafted Amon-Ra St. Brown, but Detroit lacks a true No. 1 receiver entering the 2021 season.
