The folks from Pro Football Focus are busing putting together their preseason position rankings out.
At wide receiver, the Vikings rank first, which actually doesn’t come as a huge surprise.
Here’s what Michael Renner wrote about the Vikings:
The Vikings 1-2 punch is simply unrivaled across the NFL at the moment. Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs are both top notch route runners with exceptional ball skills. Both finished among the top 10 in contested catch rate a season ago with Diggs actually leading the league. Now throw Kendall Wright in the slot – the Bears most productive receiver a season ago – and you have a complete receiving corp. It should be no surprise that the Vikings have signed Diggs to a contract extension, locking him up until 2023.
The more remarkable thing here is how Thielen and Diggs are two of the best receivers in the league despite being undrafted and taken in the fifth round, respectively.
Plenty of weapons for Kirk Cousins to work with.
