The Bears are going to have a big problem at receiver this year — a good problem. It is a problem the Bears are not used to having, and for as long as I can remember, have never possessed. They have the most talent they’ve ever had at the wideout position.

With the way Allen Robinson finished down the stretch last season, I see him picking up where he and Trubisky left off. He’ll lead the way in overall yardage, receptions and scores. But, beyond Robinson, it’ll be up to opposing defenses to pick their poison. Nagy truly has too many weapons for defenses to stop.

A year ago, Taylor Gabriel produced a team-leading 67 receptions. But, with a (hopefully) healthy Anthony Miller, I think Gabriel gets supplanted as the no. 2 overall target in the passing game. Beyond Miller, it’ll be Gabriel and rookie Riley Ridley who get the leftover looks.

Even Cordarrelle Patterson will be a fun weapon to use ever so often, though his damage will mainly be done on handling kickoffs.

While everyone wanted to see a breakout season from Javon Wims, there aren’t enough touches to go around. He’ll get time, but not as much as you’d have hoped for prior to the draft and free agency.
