6. Green Bay Packers

With Davante Adams in Las Vegas now, the Green Bay Packers are putting even more on the shoulders of Aaron Rodgers. What’s making the pressure even greater on him is the lack of a true replacement.

Green Bay added Sammy Watkins in free agency and Christian Watson in the draft. Outside of that, they will be counting on Randall Cobb and Allen Lazard.

For most quarterbacks, this wouldn’t be enough, but Rodgers will likely have another MVP-candidate season. Throw in the fact that they added two first-round picks on defense to an already stout unit and Green Bay will probably once again finish with around 13 wins.

5. Kansas City Chiefs

Losing Tyreek Hill will be interesting for the Kansas City Chiefs. He was their big play threat while Travis Kelce was the one operating in the intermediate part of the field.

They brought in JuJu Smith-Schuster, who could be a better player in Kansas City than he was in Pittsburgh, but he doesn’t give them what Hill did.

With that being said, as long as Patrick Mahomes is under center, this team has a real chance. He’s not only one of the best passers in the game, but he never gives up — just ask the Bills about how hard it was to finish them off in the postseason.

The division is much tougher this season but the Chiefs are still the favorites to come out on top.
