5 Best and Worst Landing Sports for WRs in the Draft
#1 Los Angeles Chargers
The dream landing spot for any WR in our opinion. Keenan Allen’s age is showing, Mike Williams can’t stay on the field, and Herbert is going to sling the ball. Praying the Chargers use 1st round capital on a WR.
Last year KC thought they had their guy with Sky Moore. However, the rookie left a lot to be desired. Any WR that is drafted to the team will have an opportunity to be a key player from day 1. Oh and they would have this guy called Patrick Mahomes throwing to them.#3 Buffalo Bills
Everyone wanted the Gabe Davis breakout last year but it just didn’t happen. That means that one of the best offenses with one of the best QBs in the league needs a receiver. Whoever lands here can grow in a great offense and hopefully take the reigns as WR1 as Diggs ages out.#4 New York Giants
This is a wide open receiving room. No clear alpha whatsoever. Several rookies could really excel here based on volume alone. And I know it’s Daniel Jones, but he got a good coach and immediately improved as a passer. With a clear cut #1 WR, it would bode well for both parties.#5 Carolina Panthers
The Panthers are looking like a team who is ready to invest in any rookie they draft. On top of this the Panthers receiving room is pretty empty, outside of an aging Adam Thielen. We also like the idea of a young receiver making an early connection with the rookie QB they draft this year.

#1 Atlanta Falcons
Last year the Falcons struggled to get the ball to Kyle Pitts and Drake London. While there has been a QB change since then, Desmond Ridder has not proven to be a guy to feed several receivers. Until this changes, we don’t want to see a receiver going there.
#2 Tennessee Titans
Tennessee’s QB situation raises questions about the potential for a newcomer to emerge as a top fantasy football performer. Their offense also places a heavy emphasis on Derrick Henry, which could make it challenging for a rookie receiver to find success. Because of this, the Titans may not be the ideal landing spot for a budding fantasy football star.
#3 New Orleans Saints
The Saints are an organization that is constantly striving to be average and Derek Carr is perfect for that. Carr can 100% support a WR1 but Olave is one of the best young WRs in the NFL. Whoever goes there will be stuck behind that Ohio State wideout and Micahel Thomas who is old but will still command targets. Just can’t imagine this offense supports a ton of pass catchers.
#4 San Francisco 49ers
Deebo, Aiyuk, Kittle, and CMC all taking passes away on a run first team leaves very little room for opportunities for any rookie WR that may end up on this team. Hopefully the 49ers don’t bury a beloved rookie on the depth chart, but it’s possible and we don’t like it.
#5 Philadelphia Eagles
The Eagles offense is an enormous and delicious pie to divvy up. Unfortunately, there are some very big men already consuming that pie. Even JSN would be buried as the WR3 on this team. The Eagles also will run the ball a ton and Hurts will still yards and TDs himself. Simply too many mouths to feed in the city of brotherly love.
