Even though the Chiefs finally got an elite receiver in Jeremy Maclin, they still have some pretty tough competition receiver wise this season.

Ultimately, I put Julio Jones as number one on this list because he’s arguably the best receiver in the entire league. He’s been great since the Falcons took him in the first round five years ago and has the ability to win games on his own. He’s also only faced the Chiefs once, which gives him the edge in the matchup for sure.

Antonio Brown was a close second. He’s had tremendous success against Kansas City in the past two seasons and I don’t expect that to change.

DeAndre Hopkins came in at number third. The Chiefs were able to stop him during the Wild Card game this past season, but earlier on when they didn’t have Sean Smith, he torched them. That could be something to keep an eye on in that game.

The other two rounding out this list were Mike Evans and T.Y. Hilton. Both are great athletes and Hilton has seen the Chiefs a few times during his career.

Not knowing what Evans can do will be a disadvantage for Kansas City when facing the Buccaneers, but hopefully the secondary can prevent him from having a big game.

What do you think, Chiefs Kingdom? Did I leave anyone off of this list?
