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

And we continue POWER RANKING every single NFL starter with a look at the most overrated position in the NFL, the wide receivers!

Yes, I already talked about how the wide receiver position is the most overrated one in the NFL and I won’t get into that again here. If you want some clarification into that, just go back to my AFC wide receiver rankings.

Today, we are ranking the wide receivers in the NFC.

As always, two wide receivers per team and remember it’s a power ranking so it’s based on what the player did last season. Injuries matter here. And if you have a problem with a guy being listed over someone else, your problem is with Rotoworld.com. They control the depth charts.

SO LET’S GET TO THE GOODS!
