Tyreek Hill, Jaylen Waddle, Cedrick Wilson Jr.

The receiving corp that may be the most troublesome in the Chargers' schedule this season is that of the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins may not have the overall depth of some of the teams behind them on this list but it's hard to argue with the pairing of Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle as being one of the scariest receiving duos in the NFL, if not the best.

Hill and Waddle's first season together resulted in the only duo in the league to eclipse 3,000 receiving yards (Hill - 1,710, Waddle - 1,356). Hill was second to only Jefferson in receptions and receiving yards in 2022, producing career-highs in both stats. Waddle had 29 fewer receptions in his second season but produced greater with his fewer chances with Hill by his side. Waddle led the league in yards per reception at 18.1.

Miami's dynamic duo stretches the field like no other in the league, if it wasn't for their lack of depth after Hill and Waddle they could be argued to be the best in the league. Behind Hill and Waddle in Miami's receiver room are Cedrick Wilson Jr. and Braxton Berrios battling for third on the depth chart. Wilson has only had one productive season in Dallas over his four-year career, whereas Berrios has had at least 100 receiving yards in each of his four years but has not had a breakout season to date, being more productive in the return game.

These 5 receiving corps will be formidable opponents to Derwin James and the rest of the Chargers secondary along with others they will face this season. If they can stay healthy though, the Chargers defense has the skill to stick with anyone this season. We will see in due time what group of receivers ends up causing the most trouble for the Bolts this upcoming season.
