Bengals: Ranking every wide receiver group in the AFC North
AFC North wide receiver rankings: #1 Cincinnati Bengals
Cincinnati had the best passing attack in the AFC North last year, and with a better quarterback, the production should continue increasing. The star of this group is the potential future Hall of Famer, A.J. Green.
Green has had trouble staying on the field for the last few years and missed all of 2019. When he is one the field he is one of the most feared wide receivers in the game and seems to always come up big in key moments. His return will be a huge addition for Joe Burrow. Expect the star to show that he is deserving of a contract to finish his career in Cincinnati.
The unsung hero of this group is Tyler Boyd. Boyd has had over 1,000 receiving yards in each of the last two seasons and has been able to perform consistently no matter who is throwing him the football. His style of play lines up perfectly with what Burrow did in college and this could be the year that he catches the attention of the NFL and becomes a household name.
The pick up of Tee Higgins in the draft should complement this unit nicely and provide another threat on the outside. Higgins reeled in over 1,000 yards in his final collegiate season and the Bengals have high expectations for the rookie this year.
The star power here might have less name recognition than some other teams on this list, but this unit has been able to outperform expectations when things seem stacked against them. Having a healthy year will show that this is the best wide receiver unit in the AFC North.
