The 2019 NFL season is right around the corner! We are knee deep in the preseason as teams are determining who will make the final roster. Every year there are players who come out of nowhere to make the team.

Those expectations never became reality however; they lost Le’Veon Bell to a holdout and they missed the playoffs with a 9-6-1 record. Then they had a disastrous offseason as they lost Antonio Brown, Le’Veon Bell, Jesse James, and Morgan Burnett.

Last week I revealed my tight end rankings and gave you 15 names at that position. This week, I may have outdone myself for you all.
This week I am releasing my wide receiver rankings for you all to rip to shreds or appreciate the hotness that some of these rankings have to them. They won’t be as hot as the atomic wings as there is no waiver to sign to read this, but you may find yourself taking a step back and collecting yourself.
