He's top 4-5 in my opinion.
1) Calvin Johnson
2) Larry Fitzgerald
3) Andre Johnson
In no particular order:
-Roddy White
-A.J. Green
-Greg Jennings

He's top 3 at getting the ball thrown to him. Up there with Brandon Marshall in that regard.

Except unlike Marshall he produces which is why I place him at 4th.

BTW guys, i love me some Adriel Jeremiah Green but its too soon to put him top 5. If he can sustain this for the whole season then you have an argument.

Other than the top 3, rankings are all over the place this year. Shocked

Top 3 is tough, as there are a lot of talented WR's in the league right now. I'd probably rank him right around 5th. What a duo they have at WR. Every week you see Him and Julio down in the end zone.

Looking at production alone from hte consensus top 3 vs. White over the past five years:

Roddy White - 471 catches, 6422 yards, 42 TD's
Andre Johnson - 395 catches, 5703 yards, 35 TD's
Calvin Johnson - 366 catches, 5872 yards, 49 TD's
Larry Fitzgerald - 463 catches, 6480 yards, 45 TD's

So he's 1st in catches, 2nd in yards and 3rd in TD's
Larry and Roddy also were targeted a significant amount more than Calvin and Andre.

He only had a big game because Norman the rookie was covering and Nakamura sucks [inappropriate/removed]. Gamble had to shut down J. Jones because he was the bigger threat.

I honestly would take Julio over Rodddy. He just seems to be the bigger playmaker, and yes I did watch their last game. Roddy is definitely top 10 though, but Julio is top 7 for me.

I forgot, getting thrown the ball is bad. Occasionally getting open is good.

I actually somewhat agree. Jennings is very good, but not as good as most guys on here think, still top 10. but he's not top 5 to me. Hate how low AJ Green is on your list though. Dude is incredible. Top 4 right now imo.


In fairness I haven't watched much of Green in the NFL, so I can't rate solely based on numbers or heresay. I don't doubt he is top 5. He was a boss in college.

You do know that Cruz isnt even the best WR on his own team right? Jordy Nelson isnt even the best WR on his own team. AJ Green and Julio Jones = too early.


For me they are. Cruz is always making a big play, dynamic after the catch, explosive, attacks the ball. Nicks has more consistent hands and is a smoother route runner. But Cruz is better for my money.

Jordy is definitely the best on GB. The guy is always making big plays, great catches, getting separation, attacks the ball, makes the tough catches. Jennings is better after the catch and more explosive in and out of his breaks better route runner. But Jordy is a bigger match up problem and stretches the defense better. In a big spot in a tough situation making a hard catch, give me Jordy.

It's nice to have a QB that force feeds you the ball whether you're open or not, yeah.

he's undoubtedly better than Marshall, but I wouldn't have him top 4. Probably in the 6-8 range for me.

It's cute how you have to comment on everything I say. It's like having an online puppy that's learning its independence Smile
