Real talent at the wide receiver position has taken a major hit around the NFL. Some of this could have to do with college teams failing to develop pass catchers.
Others believe that a pass-happy NFL has led to teams relying on more receivers. Hence, the influx of starting slot receivers.
Whatever the reason, many teams head into the 2019 season lacking at this position. It’s in this that we look at the 10 worst starting receivers in the NFL right now.
Cam Newton, Seahawks
Newton might have improved as a sophomore last season, but he has a whole heck of a lot more to go in that category before being considered a starter-caliber receiver. The former second-round pick has caught 47.2 percent of his targets in two seasons and is averaging 5.5 yards per target throughout his career. For comparison’s sake, New York Giants stud youngster Saquon Barkley averaged 5.8 yards per touch as a rookie. He’s a running back. Think about that for a quick second.
