This is a close call: Julio Jones, Odell Beckham Jr. , and Antonio Brown are seemingly the best receivers in the league. From a statistical standpoint, we will do a quick review of the three and see which one to draft.
Jones is simply a beast. He’s strong, fast, can jump, and doesn’t drop many balls. Jones has 5 seasons of over 1,400! That’s simply crazy. From a fantasy standpoint, that solid top notch contribution. With that being said: Does that make him the best receiver?
Odell Beckham Jr.
Beckham is the darling receiver of the league. Easily potentially one of the best receivers to play the game when healthy. In his 3 seasons, he had at least over 1,300 yards and 10 touchdowns. This makes his extremely valuable in fantasy due to the amount of touchdowns he produces and the yardage.
Brown is one of the quickest guys on the field every time he steps on it. He has the ability to create separation from anyone in the league. In his last 4 seasons, he’s had at least 1,280 yards and 9 touchdowns. Each of the last 5 years, he has had at least 100 receptions.
Who is the best?
From my experience of having Julio Jones and Antonio Brown, I will say this: Antonio Brown gives you a little more points due to touchdowns. I believe that Odell could produce the most points this year even though he’s coming off an injury. With that being said, Antonio Brown is the most consistent and best bet.
