Time and time again, we’ve been shown that speed kills in the NFL no matter the position and the wide receiver spots for this team has plenty of it. If you want weapons at receiver to be capable of stretching a defense vertically, this is the team for you.
For our number one wide receiver spot, Tyreek Hill would fill this spot. Hill and Patrick Mahomes have put fear in the eyes of defenses for a few years now. This past season, he proved that he wasn’t just a guy that could run downfield, he’s made strides as a route runner and can turn a little short yardage pass into a touchdown really quick.
Michael Gallop is coming off his first 1000 yard receiving season and he’s only getting better. He’s staked his claim as the number two receiver for the Cowboys and he will be the same for this Atlanta Falcons team. He has good height for a receiver at 6’1 and provides blazing speed right alongside Hill.
Filling out the receiver core is former Georgia Bulldog Mecole Hardman. He is currently teammates with Hill in Kansas City and yes you guessed it, he’s fast. He is coming off his first season accumulating over 500 yards and six touchdowns on only 26 receptions. Another big-play threat for this Falcons team.
Evan Engram has yet to play a full season in the NFL due to injuries, but here is a tight end that when healthy can be a valuable target in the passing game. His first season in the league, he played in 15 games amassing 64 receptions for 722 yards and six touchdowns.
This team has plenty of weapons at the skill positions that are threats to score when they touch the ball.
