Heading into the 2021 season, expect a couple of new faces at wide receiver for this Chicago Bears offense. After another disappointing season for head coach Matt Nagy’s unit in 2020, adding speed and big playmaking ability to this WR room had to be a priority for Nagy and Ryan Pace.

Last season, the Bears ranked 26th in total offense and struggled to make enough plays downfield in the passing game. The Bears ranked 27th in yards per play in 2020 (5.1), and 27th in average yards per passing play (6.4).

In comparison, The Minnesota Vikings ranked second in yards per passing play in 2020 (8.3), and the Green Bay Packers ranked third in yards per passing play (8.2). With Green Bay and Minnesota to compete with in the NFC North and one of the league’s toughest schedules, Matt Nagy must find ways to make more big plays downfield in 2021.

Look for explosiveness and big-play ability to be an emphasis for Ryan Pace and Matt Nagy when deciding the final six wide receivers after training camp. Here is who I think the six wide receivers who make the active roster after training camp will be in no particular order.
