3. Las Vegas Raiders

Davante Adams, Hunter Renfrow, Jakobi Meyers

Las Vegas has a new quarterback at the helm in Jimmy Garoppolo, and he is coming in with no shortage of targets. Davante Adams' first season in Vegas resulted in Adams producing his second best numbers in his career in yards and touchdowns with 1,516 yards and 14 touchdowns on the 2022 season, while also having a career high 15.2 yards per reception. His superb production resulted in him tallying the third best yards and the most touchdowns on the season among receivers. Adams alone makes a receiving corp formidable but the rest of the depth chart are no slouches either.

Hunter Renfrow came off a career-high season in 2021 to a disappointing one in 2022 that unfortunately ended early due to injury. When healthy, Renfrow is one of the most underrated receivers and route runners in the league. Derwin James said it himself, in an interview with Ryan Clark, that Renfrow is one of the toughest receivers to guard in the NFL.

The Raiders' biggest addition to the receiving corp this season is bringing in Jakobi Meyers from New England. Meyers has back-to-back 800+ yard seasons and has proved he can produce even in a passing offense that was near the bottom of the league. The biggest question mark to this addition is the similarity in play style between Renfrow and Meyers and them both playing from the slot. In further depth options, Keelan Cole and the addition of DeAndre Carter to fill out the depth chart makes them one of the deeper receiving rooms in the league and a dangerous one at that. Unfortunately for the Chargers, this is a team that will be played twice in this upcoming season.
