I think it's CJ then Julio. Julio is the second best receiver in the league IMO

I think Julio is a stud but would take CJ over him still.



Fitzgerald


Fitzgerald is still arguably the best receiver in the league. He isn't the physical freak that Megatron is but that doesn't stop him from being elite. Megatron has put some distance between the two of them, but much of that isn't Fitzgerald's fault.

Personally, off the top of my head I would order it: CJ > Fitz > Green > Julio
Brandt is just trying to get attention.

Why people still listen to anything Brandt has to say is beyond me. the dude is the biggest has-been hanger-on in the NFL circle and somehow he keeps being asked to give his opinion.

Megatron is very likely the best receiver we have ever seen. Julio just had his first elite year. I'm pretty sure 99/100 would take Megatron, including honest Falcon fans. If there are any.

I'm sorry but I am not putting fitz there just on the fact that no one gets him the ball. Not his fault but still he doesn't do anything in games to prove that now.

I think megatron is in a different class but Julio is number 2

I'm a huge LSU fan so it's not like I'm this Julio lover I just think he's amazing

He belongs somewhere in the list. I think I would put him between green and julio. I think age might be catching up to him. When you really think about it, Julio is arguably not even in the top 5. Would you put Marshall ahead of Julio?

This last year was really down for him. However, the year before, the qb situation was almost as bad, and he still had around 1500 yards receiving.

Fitz is awesome I'm not talking shite about him at all but in a one year contract or starting a franchise right now id pick CJ first obviously, and Julio would be my second choice.

I don't think people who would pick fitz are dumb or wrong. Just my opinion on who id take

Is Julio even a top 3 WR? How many people would take Julio over CJ, Green and Fitz if you could pick a WR to build your passing game around?

Dez Bryant was better than Julio this past season as well

lol..then why is he not even the #1 receiver on his own team?

If I'm building a team, I'd take CJ, Fitz, Andre, AJ Green ahead of Julio without question.

Dez is one I could put ahead of Julio.

Not green or fitz ( at the moment)

I agree with what some people have already said.

I would take A.J. over Jones, and Johnson over both!

Megatron is an emotionally stable Randy Moss who actually will run something other than the 9.

Green > Julio for me; Julio has roddy white and tony gonzo to take pressure off of him, who does green have jermaine gresham and who? andrew hawkins?

Hell, I'd probably take Marshall over Julio as of right now, even with taking age into consideration and what their offensive sides had to work with.

Punishing both those players for no reason.

Fitz has nothing throwing him the ball, and AJ Green has Andy Dalton (lulz) and no second target yet STILL gets open.
