2. Detroit Lions: Jameson Williams, Amon-Ra St. Brown, D.J. Chark, Josh Reynolds, Khaliff Raymond, Quintez Cephus

The Detroit Lions do not have a great wide receiver room, and last season at this time they were clearly the last group in the division. Still, the upgrades that they made, combined with the Packers and Bears losing some bigger names has them at number two.

Jameson Williams is recovering from an ACL and is likely going to miss the first six games of the season. Without that, he could be looked at as a trusted deep threat, similarly to Jaylen Waddle last season.

Still, the emergence of Amon-Ra St. Brown as a rookie makes him a better depth option than most anyone on Green Bay, and definitely anyone not named Darnell Mooney with Chicago.

D.J. Chark is coming off an injury as well, but once again, his upside tops anything the other two teams below them present. Josh Reynolds, Khaliff Raymond, and Quintez Cephus rival names like ESB, Dante Pettis, and David Moore with a slight edge to Detroit here as well.

A healthy version of Chark, Williams, and ASB is better than anything Green Bay and Chicago offer and that puts them number two.
