LA Chargers wide receivers:

  • Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, K.J. Hill, Joe Reed, Andre Patton

Keenan Allen and Mike Williams are one of the best receiving duos in the entire league. Allen is a premier number one receiver in the NFL that has some of the best elusiveness and route-running in the league while Williams became one of the league’s best deep threats last season.

It will be interesting to see how this translates with Taylor under center, but in terms of pure talent, Allen and Williams are undeniable.

The rest of the receiving corps is unproven. K.J. Hill was a really good selection in the draft that could be a huge asset at slot receiver and Joe Reed is an exceptional kick returner and gadget play player. Patton is a wild-card, as he has blazing speed but is unpolished, but the Chargers really seem to like him as they have kept him around this long.

Indianapolis Colts wide receivers:

  • T.Y. Hilton, Michael Pittman Jr, Parris Campbell, Zach Pascal, Marcus Johnson

T.Y. Hilton also gives Philip Rivers a legitimate number one target but I would say that Allen is the better receiver. Hilton has garnered more love throughout the league as a legitimate number one, but Allen is the better all-around number one.

Pittman is a huge x-factor as he was one of the best receivers in a stacked class in 2020 and he could be a huge addition to the receiving corps. While I still think he won’t be good as Mike Williams, Pittman could be the difference between the Colts having a fantastic passing attack and an average passing attack.

The depth in Indianapolis is an even bigger question mark than the depth in LA.
