For the last couple of seasons, the Denver Broncos have had one of the better wide receiver rooms in the NFL, but where do they rank in the AFC West?

The Denver Broncos are one of the very best teams in the entire NFL, and their room of wide receivers is a big reason for that.

They haven’t been given the attention they truly deserve, primarily because they’ve had a bunch 0f 2002 Toyota Camry’s throwing them the ball.

Now that all of Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy, and Tim Patrick have a nice Cadillac Escalade at quarterback, they can hopefully attract the attention they deserve as being one of the best groups in the league.

However, the question I want to look at in this article is how they stack up among the AFC West.

The addition of Davante Adams and departure of Tyreek Hill more or less was a wash, but the Chiefs have made a ton of additions to their WR room, and the Chargers did just give big Mike Williams a rich extension.

All four teams in the division have very, very talented skill players, whether it be excellent receivers, tight ends, running backs, or a combination of all three.

I will be touching on ranking the rest of the position groups, but for now, let’s rank the wide receiver rooms in the AFC West.

Where do Denver Broncos receivers stack up in AFC West?

4. Kansas City Chiefs

I think it’s pretty clear that the Chiefs’ receivers are the fourth-best in the division.

Even in the last few years with Tyreek Hill, the Chiefs did not have a massively deep room.  It was rather top-heavy with Hill and Kelce.

Now that Hill is gone, their WR stable is just OK.

In free agency, they added JuJu Smith-Schuster, and Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and took Skyy Moore in the draft.

I would expect those three, plus Mecole Hardman, to be the top four Chiefs receivers to begin the 2022 season, but the Chiefs also have Josh Gordon and Justyn Ross, a talented receiver who went undrafted this year.

Even with those two additions to their room, the Chiefs do not possess a high-end talent like the other three teams do.

This could greatly limit the Chiefs’ ability to create the big play, and this also might allow defenses to focus more on Travis Kelce, who is now their best weapon on offense.
