Antonio Brown or Julio Jones?

I think most agree that these are the two best WRs in the game. In your opinion which one is better though?

 

I say AB but not by a whole lot. Jones is really good too.

Antonio Brown is easier to scheme out of a game imo. You can give a corner safety help over top all game and take away most of the problems he brings. Julio is tougher to do that against because of his larger frame. I think it's even for me, it depends on what you want though. Brown is a blazer that is good in the screen game as well, whereas Julio is a great red zone target. Odell rounds out the top 3 but it's 1A, 1B, 1C from me.

You can't go wrong with either guy. I think Julio is clearly the more dominant player, though.

I see Brown as the "get open consistently" type guy, while Jones is the "big play" player. They are both very good, and it depends on which situation you are in to decide on who's better.

I used to think AB but now I think Julio. Not only is he great but he doesn't do any shenanigans like Antonio. Julio just goes about his business and doesn't make it about himself

This really surprises me to see so many take Julio. Id take Brown. And I'd take AJ Green, obj, and a healthy Dez (which my be a unicorn at this point) over Julio. Maybe even a guy on the come up like Mike Evans.....Can't really go wrong with Julio, he just doesn't score enough for my taste.

I'd take Julio. He can make all the catches, plus I can use him in the redzone more. I was going to say Antonio Brown b/c he's durable, but Julio's talent is too much to pass over for his size.

I don't think Odell is on the same level as Julio and Brown, those two are by far the best receivers in the league.  It's kind of tough to tell who is actually a better player for me.  Julio has a better QB, who can put passes in places only Julio can catch, much like Manning did with Wayne and Harrison.  Brown has some of the most ridiculous speed I have seen, so basically it comes to a point where we argue speed vs agility.  But I will say, Julio made some ridiculous catches today that I am not sure Brown would have made.

That's something I love about Julio and few others like AJ, Fitz (and loved about Megatron).. Those guys are no divas, team players through and through.

I've been saying Julio for the last couple of years. Even though AB has put up better stats and consistency, you have to take into account AB is the only weapon outside of Bell. He gets more than 50% of the targets while The falcons spread the ball around much better. Julio is bigger, faster, and more athletically gifted. Also he doesn't cry when the ball doesn't come to him. Reminds me of Megatron in his prime

I really dont see the problem.....Julio is amazing. But hes Andre Johnson 2.0....He doesn't score enough.

Player A: 347targets, 242 rec, 3123 yards, 24 TDs

Player B: 332targets, 219rec, 3280 yards, 14 TDs
