Who are the toughest wide receivers on the Kansas City Chiefs’ schedule this season?
The Kansas City Chiefs will see some tough wide receivers throughout the course of the 2020 season, but who are the toughest?
Narrowing down this list to the five toughest receivers on this year’s slate wasn’t difficult, but trying to rank those five receivers was extremely difficult. They could honestly be put in any order because that’s how good all five of these players are.
With the Chiefs facing the NFC South this year, it’s no wonder they’ll be seeing a punishing crop of wide receivers in 2020. In fact, four of the five players on this list are on teams in the NFC South.
Let’s take a look at the five toughest receivers on this year’s schedule.
Toughest Wide Receivers – Number 5: Stefon Diggs
Stefon Diggs being ranked fifth might seem crazy, but just wait until you see the other four players on this list.
Diggs spent the first five years of his career with the Vikings after they took him in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft out of Maryland. Minnesota made the decision to trade Diggs this offseason and he was shipped off to Buffalo to become the newest WR1 of the Bills.
Diggs was traded despite having a career year in Minnesota, grabbing 63 catches for 1,130 yards and six touchdowns. The Bills were missing a true number one threat at the wide receiver position and now they have that with Diggs.
The game against the Bills is one of the toughest on Kansas City’s schedule this year. They’ll travel to Buffalo for a week six game that will be featured on Thursday Night Football. Road games in primetime are tough enough as it is, but road games on Thursday Night Football highly favor the home team.
Expect Diggs to be a huge contributor in this game. He didn’t do much of anything against the Chiefs when the Vikings came to Kansas City last season, grabbing just one ball for four yards, but he’s with a new team now, so he’s surely going to surpass those numbers.
