By the end of the season, the Cincinnati Bengals may have the best wide receiver room in the NFL.
There is a whole lot of talent for the Cincinnati Bengals on offense, with most of that residing in the wide receiver room.
Teammates have raved about Tee Higgins and their expectations that he is going to turn a lot of heads this year. Tyler Boyd seems to always be overlooked and yet is consistently one of the best slot receivers in the game. Ja’Marr Chase has all the talent in the world and will put together a fine rookie season.
In this first game, with Mixon running the ball well, this trio of receivers is going to have plenty of space to wreak havoc. Minnesota has some questions on their new-look secondary, but at best this looks to be an average unit.
I expect the wide receivers of Cincinnati to make Joe Burrow’s job much easier by running crisp routes and getting good clean throwing lanes available.
Burrow is going to have to find his stride, but the talent of the wide receivers around him will make just enough big plays to come away with a Cincinnati win. This trio is going to set a high bar for the season with an outstanding showing in front of their home fans on Sunday.
