Wideouts top this list, and here are the best duos entering the 2021 NFL season.
Passing has become the preferred style of play in the NFL. Wide receivers are the beneficiaries.
Some are more technical, using precise routing and leverage to take down opposing defenders. Others have natural abilities, race past defenders at their speed, or use their size and length to outperform the competition. When a team has a mix of seasoned receivers on their list, the defense can only hope they have enough men to stop them.
There are many talented wideouts across the league, but which teams have the best duos entering the 2021 season? Five stand out from the rest as they can work together to share the wealth and make their quarterback a lucky man.
5. Stefon Diggs and Cole Beasley – Buffalo Bills
Stefon Diggs turned out to be all the Buffalo Bills gave up to get him and more. He and quarterback Josh Allen clicked while Cole Beasley’s presence in the defense slot gave the defense nightmares.
Of the duos on this list, these two are some of the most technically solid. Their ability to create a separation at release and at the end of routes gives everyone a huge window of opportunity.
Diggs and Beasley together posted 209 receptions for 2,502 yards and 12 touchdowns last season. With this being the first season that Diggs has worked with Allen and Beasley, expectations for another dominant year are high. You will face tough opponents all year round so it will be interesting to see if they can stay consistent.
Buffalo fans haven’t had that kind of talent since the days of Jim Kelly, but hopefully Allen, Diggs, and Beasley can quit the job this time around.
