Who thought julio was better than AB?

Nope.

What amazes me is that AB isn't huge, super fast, or a freakish athlete. He just does everything great and he's reliable. He can run amazing routes, and makes some clutch catches.

OBJ.

I was actually ready to put Evans there this year but not anymore.

Julio is way too inconsistent. Had a money matchup yesterday and ended up with pedestrian numbers. A little too boom or meh for me.

Same as Jerry Rice. Attention to detail in route running will mask a lot of physical imperfections.

Julio could have been but with the injuries his career has declined consistently for 2 years- if he stayed healthy and they kept the same focus of giving him the volume of other WRs he might have been the best WR the league has ever seen but that's all what if's..
Brown and Odell is worthy of a legit conversation- I think Odell has a leg up on catch radius and jump balls (although past 2 years, it feels like Odell is protecting himself more and less willing to put himself in position for these insane catches- not sure yet but just feels like he's hesitating more). Brown wins in the consistency battle. Both look awesome with route running.. Brown has the maturity or just mental stability.
As a Giants fan, talking strictly what happens on the field, I think Odell has a special talent that can do more for a struggling Eli than Brown is capable of. If we're pairing with QB who's accurate and has time, Brown would be the clear choice.

That catch yesterday sealed the deal. Even with Ben playing like chit, AB finds a way to play well. Fuker can play anywhere on the field at an elite level.

Antonio is in the midst of one of the greatest stretches ever.

He’s disguising how bad Ben really is

OBJ is close, and is better after the catch than brown imo. but brown is marginally better at everything else except smaller catch radius as someone else mentioned

My heart still says Julio and that it's Matt Ryans fault that he and the Falcons are sucking. I havn't watched their games though, so I don't know if he's just playing bad or what.
Last year Julio was clearly better.

Julio is built like an alien. All situations being the same, Julio is better than Antonio

Yup.

Every GM in the league would pick Julio over AB.

Correct, but also add in the chemistry between the QB. Trust issues, timing (especially for posts). If the WR and QB are on the same exact timing, you could probably score a lot more than not.

AB is #1 through sheer consistency. He isn't as explosive as OBJ or Julio but AB always shows up even with Ben laying goose eggs

because if he doesn't have a good game, he chews his QB out, so they force him the ball next game and throw 5 INTs

AB reminds me of Jerry Rice. Isnt a physical specimen or speedster that we crave for in a WR but is awesome at everything a WR needs to do to be successful.

I think there is some debate, but he's definitely in the lead.

For all intents and purposes Gronk is essentially a WR. He runs go routes and lines up in the slot more often than not. A healthy Gronk is the most lethal target in the league.

Isn't OBJ virtually guaranteed to score a TD every game?

the thing that frustrates me about julio's situation is that he gets shaded coverage and the falcons throw elsewhere

im sure AB and other elites get shaded as well, and they still force feed them the ball. and it probably brings their true skill out in making sure they get the grab.
been thinking about that alot lately. wonder what julio really thinks.

AJ green is a huge example. i know he gets all kinds of attention from the secondary, but his QB doesnt give a sht... or so it seems. he throws it anyway
