Today Ari Bhanpuri of NFL.com published his ranking for the triplets of each team, quarterback, running back and main receiver. The concept of having triplets prevailed in the early 1990s when the Dallas Cowboys had Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith and Michael Irvin. The concept largely ignored the fact that the Cowboys probably had the best offensive line at the time, but the quality of their skill position players did not hurt. Ranking 13th in the NFL, they say, "I'm fully aware that I'm higher on Carr than most, but I truly believe the sixth grader will have a career season." After struggling with injury and an overhaul of the squad in recent years, Carr has the talent to regain his 201
Bhanpuri, however, was even friendlier to two rivals in the Oakland Division, classifying the Kansas City trio of Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce, and Damien Williams 5th and the Chargers trio of Philip Rivers, Melvin Gordon and Keenan Allen 2. behind only New Orleans. The Broncos are 29th and we can all agree on that.
It's not a real question that Oakland's skill-position players will be in the top tier of the NFL this year after being absolutely lazy in 2018. But just like the cowboys In the past it will depend on how well the offensive line is playing. It will be you who give Derek Carr time to use all his shiny new toys. When the Raiders offensive comes together, it has the resources to become one of the league's most explosive units.
