[2017-18 NFL Position Power Rankings] The Wide Receivers (AFC)

Day five of the POWER RANKING THE NFL’S STARTERS takes a look at the most overrated position in the NFL….the wide receivers!

Overrated? What do I mean by that exactly? Well, allow me to explain. WR’s are salary cap suckers and they really don’t make that big of a difference in the long run. When is the last time a team won a Super Bowl because of a season a WR had? Go ahead. I’ll wait.

See what I mean? Yes, WR’s can be fun to watch but everyone knows the really good elite QB’s don’t need elite WR’s to make an impact. Tom Brady will be the first one to tell you that.

Anyway, even though I’m not that big of a fan of the wide receiver position, we do have to rank them and we might as well start with the Antonio Brown Conference AFC!

As always, two wide receivers per team are ranked. And if you have a problem with the depth charts, your problem is with Rotoworld.com, not me.
