1. Las Vegas Raiders, Derek Carr

RB: Josh Jacobs, Kenyan Drake, Zamir White
WR: Davante Adams, Mack Hollins
WR: Hunter Renfrow
WR: Bryan Edwards, Demarcus Robinson
TE: Darren Waller, Foster Moreau

No team in the NFL has a scarier group of offensive skill players than the Las Vegas Raiders.

The Raiders had an incredibly tumultuous 2021 season, which included head coach Jon Gruden stepping away, Henry Ruggs being involved in a tragic accident resulting in his incarceration, and plenty of other off-field issues.

This team moved on from GM Mike Mayock and brought in a couple of former New England Patriots — Dave Ziegler and Josh McDaniels — to comprise the new brain trust in Sin City.

One of the first orders of business for those two?

Trading for Davante Adams.

The Raiders seemingly struck gold on this deal and landed arguably the game’s top receiver. Derek Carr was already dangerous enough with Darren Waller, Hunter Renfrow, and Bryan Edwards as his top targets.

With Adams in the fold, the Raiders now have the best group of skill players in the NFL.

Is the offensive line a finished product? I don’t think so, but we’re fixing to find out how much that actually matters. It’s probably good enough with how quickly Carr gets the ball out.

This is going to be a brutal group to defend especially with the size and speed of Mack Hollins as well as Demarcus Robinson coming off the “bench”.
