Where does the Buffalo Bills wide receivers rank among the other AFC East teams?

Some things to note are the moves that were made within the division, or lack thereof. Of course the biggest addition to the division is Stefon Diggs, who the Buffalo Bills acquired in a trade with the Minnesota Vikings. The New York Jets were the most active adding wide receivers in free agency and the NFL Draft. Meanwhile, the Miami Dolphins were silent and keeping the status quo with their current corps due to their depth at the position. Meanwhile the New England Patriots had to deal with the departure of Tom Brady which raises the question: Who will be throwing the ball to Julian Edelman and company?

There are a few things that stand out in the AFC East when it comes to wide receivers. First off, Buffalo has separated themselves from the rest with the acquisition of the Minneapolis Miracle receiver. The Jets are the most suspect group because there isn’t a player in the group who has really established themselves as a premier receiver in the league. Jamison Crowder comes close being in the league for five seasons and producing decent numbers. DeVante Parker quickly emerged as the best receiver in the division last year but the question is will he be able to repeat last years performance. Both the Dolphins and Patriots receivers are comparable to one another because both squads have nice depth at the position. But both teams had a lot of injuries to deal with throughout their seasons.

The AFC East is going to look very different in 2020. It is easy to be optimistic about the Buffalo Bills taking over top spot in the division. But until things unfold, expectations should be tempered and let Josh Allen show us what he is truly capable of. We are in an age of uncertainty. But one thing that is for certain for the teams of the AFC East, each team had at least one big change during the offseason that can alter the landscape of the division, conference, and league. The AFC East is shaping up to be one to watch.
