Wideouts reign supreme on 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 route-running and leverage to beat opposing defenders. Others have natural abilities, blazing past defenders with their speed or using their size and length to reach over the competition. When a team has a mix of skilled receivers on their roster, defenses 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 one happy man.
5. Stefon Diggs and Cole Beasley – Buffalo Bills
Stefon Diggs proved to be everything the Buffalo Bills gave up to get him and more. He and quarterback Josh Allen clicked, while Cole Beasley‘s presence in the slot gave defenses matchup nightmares.
Out of the duos on this list, these two are some of the most technically sound. Their ability to create separation at the release and the top of routes gives Allen a huge throwing window.
Diggs and Beasley combined to catch 209 receptions for 2,502 yards and 12 touchdowns last season. With that being the first season Diggs has worked with Allen and Beasley, the expectations are high for another dominant year. They will face some tough opposition throughout the year, so it will be interesting to see if they can be consistent.
Buffalo fans haven’t had this kind of talent since the Jim Kelly days, but hopefully, Allen, Diggs and Beasley can finish the job this time around.
