[2018-19 NFL Position Power Rankings] The Wide Receivers (AFC)

Oh, you thought we were done power ranking all the 2018-19 NFL starters already? We aren’t even halfway through yet, so buckle in boys and girls. Business is just now picking up. Today, we are taking a look at those pesky wide receivers.

If there’s any position in the NFL where a player can quickly fall off a cliff, it’s the wide receiver position. So many factors go into a wide receiver having a successful season that it’s really no surprise when a player goes from one of the best in the league to an afterthought (Dez Bryant anyone?). Here are the guys who were the top dogs in the AFC last season….

As always, depth charts are pulled from Rotoworld.com.

And don’t forget, rookies and players who were injured last year are always ranked low. Why the hell would I rank them high if they didn’t even play? Think about it.
