Every NFL team’s most dangerous offensive weapon – (Yardbarker)
Miami Dolphins: Kenny Stills, wide receiver
Stills is a guy who has the potential to give nightmares to opposing defenses in 2018. While defenses will be focusing on No. 1 receiver, DeVante Parker, it will give Stills opportunities to make those awesome plays he’s known for. Stills has averaged 16.1 yards per catch over his five-year career. He has also scored 15 touchdowns and recorded 1,573 yards over his past two seasons. Poised for a bigger role, Stills might become the top receiver in Miami over Parker.
Minnesota Vikings: Dalvin Cook, running back
We only saw a sample size of Cook’s abilities as a professional before he injured his ACL last year in Week 4. But, 88.5 rushing yards per game is enough proof to consider Cook a dangerous offensive threat moving forward. It’s also worth noting that Cook recorded the most rushing yards in the ACC in both 2015 and 2016. Once he’s unleashed this season, the sky will be the limit for him.
New England Patriots: Rob Gronkowski, tight end
Patriots fans are happy that Gronk decided to postpone retirement and play for at least one more season. He is a beast on the gridiron, and even triple coverage is not enough to stop him at times. During his eight years playing, Gronk has averaged 70.4 yards per game and scored 76 times. He is a tight end like no other. Look for the magic and ball-spiking to continue once Gronkowski and his legendary quarterback Tom Brady hit the field this fall.
New Orleans Saints: Alvin Kamara, running back
The Saints have a lot of dynamic players on offense, but Kamara is in a class all by himself. If a defender is in the way, he simply scoots around him and continues to find openings to break free. After recording 1,554 scrimmage yards and 13 touchdowns, it was no wonder Kamara earned Offensive Rookie of the Year honors. More of the same is on tap for Kamara, who will be featured even more prominently in 2018.
New York Giants: Odell Beckham Jr., wide receiver
Beckham plays with passion and wears his heart on his sleeve. That’s what makes him one of the most fantastic at his position to watch. He has averaged 94.1 yards per game since 2014 and this does not look to change this season. What he brings to the table in New York is unmatched by any other player on the roster. OBJ’s healthy return to the game in September will do wonders in helping revive a Giants offense that failed across the board last year.
New York Jets: Quincy Enunwa, wide receiver
A Jets receiver who deserves more love in 2018 is Enunwa. After missing last season due to a neck injury, Enunwa will return to build off of the 857 yards and four touchdowns he recorded in 2016. He has already been spotted making some pretty spry moves in offseason practices. Enunwa will open up the season as a No. 1 receiver who should command a ton of targets.
Oakland Raiders: Amari Cooper, wide receiver
