3. Tyreek Hill
Pairing the best tight end in the NFL with the fastest wide receiver that the NFL has ever seen is really not fair, but that is just what the Chiefs have done with Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill. While Kelce may be the reliable target over the middle of the field who can slowly pick a team apart, Hill is the explosive weapon who can change the game in an instant. That’s not to say that he isn’t a reliable sure-handed receiver, too. He is, but it’s his big-play speed that makes him unlike anyone else in the league.
In the end, that’s why I ended up putting him one spot higher than Kelce. There is just something freakish about Hill that you have to see to believe. In a league of the best athletes in the world, Hill runs by them like they were your 50-year-old uncle in a family flag football game.
Hill torched the Bills on Sunday to the tune of 172 yards on 9 receptions. There is no way to prepare for Hill’s speed in practice because there isn’t anyone else that can replicate it. If you drop a ton of guys back to make sure he can’t beat you deep, then Travis Kelce is going to carve up whoever you have matched up one-on-one with him underneath. While both Kelce and Hill are special and elite weapons worthy of their spots on this list, it is the combination of both of them that makes defending the Chiefs an absolute nightmare.
Especially with an all time great offensive mind at the helm.
