2. Las Vegas Raiders

The Las Vegas Raiders undoubtedly have the best wide receiver in the division, even if he is slightly overrated by mainstream NFL media. Nobody else in the division is as good as Davante Adams, who does a lot of heavy lifting for this wide receiver room.

As great as Adams is, it shouldn't be controversial to say he is past his prime at this point in his career. His numbers dipped slightly (in a per-game way) away from Aaron Rodgers last season and they will probably dip a bit more with Jimmy Garoppolo as his quarterback.

Adams is still going to be a top-five wide receiver in the sport without a doubt. But it would not be surprising at all if that regression curve starts in 2023 as he passes the age of 30. WIth the lack of talent in Vegas overall, it would not be surprising if we see Vegas cash out and move Adams after the season.

Renfrow had an exceptional slot season two years ago but was downright bad last season for the Raiders, although injuries didn't help much. We are lower on Renfrow here at Bolt Beat but as a slot option, he is still solid. Jakobi Meyers is a solid-enough WR2 (especially when you have Adams in front of him).

The team also has depth that it can rely upon. DeAndre Carter was snagged from the Chargers and will improve the special teams game while offering a gadget option as a WR4/5. Keelan Cole didn't do much less season but has proven that he can in the league.

It is actually a really tough split between the first and second-ranked WR room in the AFC West. Some could argue the Raiders because of health reasons but they also have their own variables with Renfrow. For that reason, they check in at No. 2.
