Power Ranking The NFL Divisions By Wide Receiver Situations.

Kmess 2

Welcome to the third addition of the Branded Sports NFL Divisional rankings by different position groups. Today we will be going over the NFL Wide Receiver groups.

Monday we covered Running Backs

Tuesday we covered Quarterback

The rankings are based off the overall position group within each division as a whole. Today’s rankings are going off the top 3 WR’s for each team. (Listed on their team depth charts.)

I will rank the divisions from 8 to 1. Let the rankings begin.

8. AFC SOUTH

Colts: T.Y. Hilton, Michael Pittman Jr., Parris Camphell

Jaguars: DJ Chark, Dede Westbrook, Chris Conley

Texans: Will Fuller, Brandin Cooks, Kenny Stills (Randall Cobb)

Titans: AJ Brown, Corey Davis, Adam Humphries

This division lost arguably the best WR in the game when the Texans traded away Hopkins. There are so many questions throughout the South. Will T.Y. stay healthy? Will Fuller play a full season? AJ Brown has a monster rookie year but can he repeat it? There are definitely some talented guys in this division, but as a whole it’s in the cellar.

7. AFC EAST

Bills: Stefon Diggs, Josh Brown, Cole Beasley

Dolphins: DeVante Parker, Preston Williams, Albert Wilson

Jets: Breshad Perriman, Jamison Crowder, Denzel Mims

Patriots: Julian Edelman, Mohamed Sanu, N’Keal Harry

Another division with some talented guys, but not an overall extremely strong division. I think the Bills have the best group out of the 4, the addition of Diggs was phenomenal. I also think the Patriots have a chance to be a very good group if Harry can take his game to the next level. I also think Parker is a monster but extremely inconsistent.

6. NFC EAST

Cowboys: Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, Cee Dee Lamb

Eagles: Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson, Jalen Reagor

Giants: Golden Tate, Sterling Sheppard, Darius Slayton

Redskins: Terry McLaurin, Steven Sims Jr., Kelvin Harmon

I think this group could easily be ranked higher by the end of the year. The Cowboys arguably have the best WR Corp in the NFL. Terry McLaurin had a monster year as a rookie but who will step up behind him? Will the Eagles receivers be able to stay healthy?

5. AFC WEST

Broncos: Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy, KJ Hamler

Chargers: Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, Andre Patton

Chiefs: Tyreek Hill, Sammy Watkins, Mecole Hardman

Raiders: Tyrell Williams, Henry Ruggs, Hunter Renfrow

Some absolute studs in this division. Hill can fly, Keenan Allen is an under the radar top 10 wideout. But then some big questions. Will Ruggs be another Raiders speedster bust? Can two rookies starting for Denver work out? More questions than answers for them to be higher.

4. NFC WEST

49ers: Debo Samuel, Kendrick Bourne, Brandon Aiyuk

Cardinals: DeAndre Hopkins, Larry Fitzgerald, Christian Kirk

Rams: Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods, Josh Reynolds

Seahawks: Tyler Lockett, DK Metcalf, Phillip Dorsett

I can’t wait to see Hopkins and Fitzgerald together will Kyler. I think Metcalf is going to be a monster in year two. Quietly Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods are a nasty tandem. The biggest question is who will step up for the 49ers behind Deebo?

3. NFC NORTH

Bears: Allen Robinson, Anthony Miller, Ted Ginn Jr.

Lions: Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones Jr., Danny Amendola

Packers: DeVante Adams, Allen Lazard, Devin Funchess

Vikings: Adam Thielen, Justin Jefferson, Tajae Sharpe

That Lions trio is nasty. Adding the speed of Tedd Ginn to the Bears is going to help Allen Robinson a lot. I think the departure of Diggs absolutely hurts the Vikings, but I can’t wait to see what Jefferson can bring. Obviously behind DeVante Adams in Green Bay is a question, but I think Rodgers will have love the big bodied Funchess.

2. AFC NORTH

Bengals: A.J. Green, Tyler Boyd, Tee Higgins

Browns: Odell Beckham Jr., Jarvis Landry, Rashard Higgins

Ravens: Marquise Brown, Willie Snead IV, Miles Boykin

Steelers: JuJu Smith-Schuster, James Washington, Diontae Johnson

I can’t wait to see a healthy A.J. Green with Tyler Boyd catching passes from the #1 overall pick. Beckham and Landry are determined are still pound for pound a top tier 1-2 punch. Quietly the Ravens have one of the best 1-3 in the league, Snead seems to catch everything and Hollywood can FLY! Biggest question mark overall is who is the true #2 in Pittsburgh.

1. NFC SOUTH

Buccaneers: Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Scotty Miller

Falcons: Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley, Russell Gage

Panthers: DJ Moore, Robby Anderson, Curtis Samuel

Saints: Michael Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders, Tre’Quan Smith

I mean… A division with Michael Thomas, Julio Jones and Mike Evans only could be #1. Then you have big up in comers like Chris Godwin, Calvin Ridley and DJ Moore who are going to breakout. AND, the division added Robby Anderson and Emmanuel Sanders… Game over.

So, the NFC South is the first division to be ranked #1 in two categories, they also took home the top spot in the quarterback rankings. #1 in QB’s and WR’s… Watch out defenses.

Tomorrow I will he ranking the divisions by TE situations.
