After bold moves by the LA Chargers, Las Vegas Raiders and Denver Broncos, the AFC West was touted as one of the best divisions of all time in 2022. However, the Kansas City Chiefs were able to maintain their place atop the division with only the Chargers joining the team in the playoffs as a wild card.

The same hype does not exist for the division in 2023. While there is still a lot of talent in the division, pundits and fans have learned their lessons about overhyping the division as a whole.

That being said, the Chiefs do not have an advantage in every aspect of the game with one of the weaker points of the roster being the wide receiver room. Having Travis Kelce and Patrick Mahomes helps that lack of talent but they do not have some massive advantage like previous years with Tyreek Hill.

The WR rooms are very interesting in the AFC West in 2023. Taking out pass-catching running backs and tight ends, let's rank the rooms.

4. Kansas City Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs have the worst wide receiver room in the division and that shouldn't be a hot take. While there is still talent in the room and it isn't the worst in the sport, there is more to be desired if you are a Chiefs fan.

Now let's be clear. The Chiefs are still going to have a great offense as they have the best offensive mind in the sport, the best quarterback in the sport and arguably the greatest tight end league history (at least for passing purposes). Add in an exceptional offensive line and things will still be fine for Kansas City.

But the talent at receiver simply isn't great. There is no WR1 on the roster and you could argue that there isn't even a high-end WR2. Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Kadarius Toney and Skyy Moore are the three best receivers with little depth behind them. MVS is a low-tier WR2, Toney is always injured and Moore has not proven anything in the league yet.
