The NFC East has the potential to be one of the most entertaining divisions to watch in all of football. The Eagles and Cowboys have been at the forefront of the division and postseason for the past few years. The NY Giants and Commanders have added pieces through the draft and free agency to help put themselves as close to contention as possible.

There are elite, established players on both sides of the ball throughout the division, as well as young newcomers looking to make their marks. When we look at the position groups as a whole, the wide receiver rooms are the most intriguing. So, who's at the top? We break that down in this piece, with Washington checking in as our worst group in the division:

4. Washington Commanders

The Commanders return the division's fourth leading receiver in Terry McLaurin for the 2024 season. Entering his sixth year, McLaurin is the elder statesman of the Commanders receivers room. McLaurin has posted 1,000-yard seasons in each of the past four campaigns and with the addition of highly-touted rookie quarterback Jayden Daniels, McLaurin is certainly looking to continue the trend.

However, outside of McLaurin, the rest of the Commanders' receiving corp has some question marks. Jahan Dotson had a solid rookie campaign in 2022 with more than 500 yards and seven touchdowns. Despite having more catches in 2023, Dotson saw his receiving yards and touchdowns go down. Add that drop in production with an unproven rookie in Luke McCaffrey and you have a somewhat unthreatening receiving room.

Now, you could attribute the bad numbers to who they had under center in 2023, but the truly great receivers always seem to make a quarterback's life easier. Daniels could be great, but if he's not, the Commanders' receivers probably won't be great either.
