2. Las Vegas Raiders: Davante Adams, Jakobi Meyers, Hunter Renfrow

Other wide receivers: Deandre Carter, Phillip Dorsett, Keelan Cole, Tre Tucker, Cam Sims, Chris Lacy, and DJ Turner

This bunch is obviously highlighted by Davante Adams, who could still be the best in the business. It should be noted, however, that the addition of Jakobi Meyers could pay dividends for their revamped offense. Meyers was a big play threat for New England, but had a true knack for finding the sticks in the middle of the field, averaging 12 yards per reception last season. Hunter Renfrow has a chance to bounce back from a season plagued by injury and return to his true form. All in all, this group has a chance to elevate the Raider offense.

While Davante Adams is a top-tier player, I think we can all agree that the combination of Jakobi Meyers and Hunter Renfrow is one of lesser talent than Mike Williams and Quentin Johnston. With all of that in mind, the Raiders could have a better offense than many are expecting. Jimmy Garoppolo is a sleeper pick for a fantasy league due to the overall potential of his receivers.
