The Athletic's Joe Buscaglia believes that the wide receiver position is the Buffalo Bills' biggest need heading into the new league year in 2024. The Bills will still have quarterback Josh Allen and receiver Stefon Diggs, but the second half of last year yielded a lack of consistent explosive plays on offense and capped some of the team's overall potential. The absence of an explosive receiver who could attract attention away from Diggs made the Bills rely on shorter throws, their running game and longer drives to come away with points. Adding a top-tier receiver in this year's NFL draft could help open things up for Buffalo on offense significantly, which could help them eventually return to the Super Bowl. Giving Diggs help across the field should also help him produce more after he ended last year with a low ceiling for fantasy managers.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Romeo Doubs caught four of six targets for 83 yards during the team's 21-24 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. After an up-and-down regular season, the second-year receiver showed up in the playoffs, gaining 234 yards on 10 receptions and being a favorite target for quarterback Jordan Love. The Packers have a number of impressive rookie wide receivers that showed up this season and plenty of mouths to feed around the entire offense, including 2022 first-round draft selection Christian Watson. Doubs will always face stiff competition for targets, but it speaks volumes that when everyone was healthy during this playoff run, he was one of his quarterback's favorite targets.
