4. Odell Beckham Jr., Zay Flowers, and Rashod Bateman lead the wide receivers unit

Although there are no surprises when it comes to the first three receivers named in the first depth chart, it's interesting to see how Odell Beckham overtook Rashod Bateman for the WR1 role.

Bateman has suffered plenty of injury woes throughout his brief career after entering the league in 2021, but it's not that Beckham comes with a clean bill of health either.

That said, OBJ has looked great all through training camp while Bateman has missed most of it recovering from an injury that didn't allow him to do a lot of training through the summer.

Labeled the "Most Impressive Rookie" Zay Flowers is seemingly the WR3 of the team and the man expected to take most snaps starting on the slot from the LOS. The rookie can cook corners outside of the numbers but he's better suited to man the slot with OBJ and Bateman available and better when kissing the touchline.
