Also, the less targets for Julio and more weapons around him should lead to a higher average, yet Calvin sits at 16.1 for his career while Julio was at 15.8 this year
Julio is a beast and the only Wr that is hands down better is Megatron. Any other argument for any other Wr is just an argument with no basis.
I think Gil Brandt must be taking his poll in Alabama.
That's about the only place you'll find 4 people out of 10 taking Julio over Megatron.
FWIW, I think Julio is probably the 2nd best receiver in the game
Marshall is getting mad underrated on this thread. Based on last season, Calvin is tops and BMarsh is second IMO. He is incredibly dangerous after the catch.
Honestly, there are a bunch of really good WR out there right now. It is kind of hard to form a good list.
Probably the top ten (not really in order):
Also, this is leaving out Vincent Jackson, Demaryius Thomas, Steve Smith, and Reggie Wayne.
Simple question is: if you replace Megatron with Julio in Detroit's offense, could Julio put up similar numbers? I say yes. He can make a defense as good as the 49ers look bad when he's on.
