4. Kansas City Chiefs: Kadarius Toney, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Skyy Moore

Other Wide Receivers: Richie James, Rashee Rice, Justin Watson, Justyn Ross, Cornell Powell, Ihmir Smith-Marsette, Kekoa Crawford, Ty Fryfogle, Jerrion Ealy, Ty Scott, Nikko Remigio

Look, we have to be objective here. While we would love to see all of these guys step up and make a huge offensive impact, the truth of the matter is that Kadarius Toney has not been on the field enough for us to know whether he is what he is hyped up to be, Skyy Moore has been on a leash and is unproven, and Marquez Valdes-Scantling is eternally a number 3 option. While Mahomes has magic in his bag and can get the most out of his receivers, it is impossible to say the Chiefs are truly even close to the other three teams in terms of proven talent in the receiving corps.

With all of that in mind, there are players to keep an eye on. Obviously,b Kadarius Toney has the potential if he can stay healthy. Skyy Moore is a tremendous route runner that is just now getting a fair opportunity at proving it. Rashee Rice and Justyn Ross are two talented youngsters. Richie James has reportedly looked good in training camp. While they are currently the lowest ranked, they have a lot of opportunities for mobility.
