    Does The AFC or NFC Have The Better Skill Players?

    Something to debate about as we wait for TC to come. Not asking which conference has the better teams but which conference has the better skill players. The AFC comes with the likes of Lamar, Mahomes, TJ Watt, Watson and OBJ. The NFC with Wilson, Wentz, Cooper, Barkley, McCaffery, Kamara and Metcalf.

    I wasn't going to name all skill players in each conference and make this an essay long thread

    It's just hilarious that you chose Metcalf over a more obvious choice.
    The Baker has come. Believe the hype.

    Do you mean skill position players? I don't think QBs and edge rushers count as those. Or just better players in general?

    I'll pick (no order) 5 WR and RB, plus 3 TE from each conference.

    WR
    NFC: Thomas, Jones, Hopkins, Adams, Godwin/Evans
    AFC: Hill, Allen, Sutton, Brown, Landry/Beckham
    (One WR duo for each because they probably help each other.)

    RB
    NFC: McCaffrey, Jones, Barkley, Elliott, Cook
    AFC: Chubb, Ekeler, Henry, Jacobs, Ingram

    TE
    NFC: Kittle, Gronkowski, Ertz
    AFC: Kelce, Waller, Andrews

    So it seems like the top of each position favors the NFC heavily.

    I'd put Diggs in that WR group (Or TY) for the AFC.

    No Mixon at RB for the AFC? Heck, even off his down year no Bell?

    Henry should be part of the TE group, but can't stay healthy.

    Defense is a bit interesting IMO:
    CB -
    AFC: White, Gilmore, Ward, Hayward, Jones/Howard Man that leaves off some good ones in Harris, Jackson, Nelson, Peters, Humphrey)
    NFC: Fuller (Kendall), Lattimore, Peterson, Ramsey, Slay/Maddox (Is the eagles duo possibly the best duo in teh NFC?)

    SS -
    AFC: Adams, Mathieu, James, Clark
    NFC: Collings, Peppers, Smith, Neal (when healthy)

    FS -
    AFC: McCourty, Thomas, Fitzpatrick, Byard, Simmons
    NFC: Amos, Harris (I guess) Jenkins, Baker, Ward

    I feel the AFC dets the tip on that side of the ball.

    I love you for putting Sutton on the list

    And I love you for mentioning Simmons lol... Sutton and Simmons are two very underappreciated players in the league simply because they've played their whole career on a bad team.

    I actually forget Diggs is in the AFC now, although I remembered Hopkins switched conferences. On name alone Diggs would probably bounce AJ Brown off the list, but I actually like Brown's situation better going forward. I could also replace Landry with Diggs, as I tried to get cute there with the duo for each conference. It's pretty hard to decide between Godwin and Evans IMO. They are pretty much the archetypes of the X and Y receiver.

    Mixon I considered instead of Ingram, but ultimately decided on the latter.

    Fail enough.

    Ekeler has no business on that list.

    Definitely had a more productive 2019 than Mixon. But I think Ekeler also gets put into better positions to succeed. He's really solid in pass protection as well though despite his size.

    It's probably about even.

    I never liked the term "skill players". Everybody has skills, regardless of position.

    This. His receiver skills are super underrated.
