With Julio at 30 years old and the age topic being discussed in the thread, here is another set of data to consider (or not, as that's up to each person)... I looked up the top 75 in career receivi

I want to see your data - that's not what I see. I think WRs start declining at age 28, on average. This is based on 1500 "seasons" for receivers since 2000. I collected their data, put ever

#1 - JJ is a Top 5 WR in the league based on talent

#2 - He's dependent on his QB, and Ryan and the entire O-line has taken a dump this season. It's not his fault his FF stats are what they are

#3 - I can't see benching him unless you have other Top 10 WR's on your bench, but I can't see that being the case often. He's due for a couple monster games...let's just hope, like Hopkins, they come during the playoffs.

#4 - I guess that's it. lol. I don't want to blame him, but then you see Fitzmagic and Devante Parker balling out in Miami, and you gotta wonder WTF is up with JJ this year.

In the end...I would never call this dude even AVERAGE...he's elite....just being doubled a lot, and Ryan being forced into other reads for some reason.

Julio Jones (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Coach Dan Quinn expects Jones to be back out there this week against the Panthers after missing Thanksgiving versus the Saints.  Julio will immediately return to his usual WR1 role as a decoy opening up the field for Austin Hooper.

Love everyone's positive feedback for JJ but @ some point we need to face reality and facts.........no TDs since Week 3 and playing injured. JJ doesn't care about his fantasy owners because he doesn't need to. So why the love????

I don't think it's "love" as much as hopeful desperation.  You can't bench the guy because, as soon as you do, he'll put up a monster game, so you kind of have to just hope for the best and eat what you get.

I lost a championship because I benched AB a couple of years ago on a Monday night game and he was a game-time decision going into Sunday night.

If Julio is playing (and it looks like he will be), you absolutely start him. He's had over a week rest and he was a game-time decision last week.

No way you bench him, but he likely does what he does best, let us down.

End of days for Julio Jones. I admit it. Still a damn good receiver, just not the guy he used to be. Ridley, like Julio did to Roddy, will become #1 guy next year in his third season.

 

Could be, but he doesn't really look like he's playing any worse than he has in years past... the opportunities in the red zone are just non-existent.

He's top 4 in average yards per game and top 6 for total yardage on the season despite missing a game. The fact that he's 14th in total targets and 19th in total receptions is the telling tale of his fantasy season however (along side the obvious lack of TDs). So I wouldn't say he's not the guy he used to be from a talent outlook, he's making good use of the opportunities he gets, but from a fantasy standpoint the ship does look like it's raising its sails soonish.
