VIDEO: Odell Beckham Jr. is better than Julio Jones


Two of the NFL’s best wide receivers go head-to-head in Week 2 as the Giants take on the Falcons. But who’s better, Odell Beckham Jr. or Julio Jones? Beckham’s consistency could give him the edge.

Which WR would you rather have on your team, Jones or Beckham? Let us know on Twitter.

  • Paul Vance

    OBJ Showed up a quarter of the way into the season last year, with no tape on him. OBJ won’t even come close to Julio’s production when they get to the same amount of games plays. One lucky catch on Sunday Night, and everyone wants to declare him a HOFer. Please you’re better than this.

    • Tim Edell

      I agree with you that he is being over hyped as the best WR in football. However, his first season was much much more then 1 lucky catch. To play only 12 games and to have 91 catches, 1305 yds with 12 tds is truly amazing. It will be interesting as the season goea on how he performs with the added attention he will receive from opposing defensea.

      • SteveS

        I can’t imagine that NFL defenses did have enough tape and enough smarts to try to blanket OBJ last year. The man is 5’11” and plays like he is 6’4″. The only thing that will keep him from beating his numbers from last year is improved secondaries in their division and/or a poor season by Eli and/or Giants O-line.

        If we wanna talk about added attention, he was the number 1 receiver on NY over those last 6 weeks Cris mentioned. If anything ODB will have an easier time with Victor Cruz back in action. He is very much hyped though, though I think it is warranted. Last years rookie class of receivers was legendary no doubt, but 13 was on another level to be sure.

        • Tim Edell

          Victor cruz is not back and they have no clue at this point when he will get back on the field.

      he graded out as the best, they don’t give a fuk about hype or luck, man.

    I love Beckham and as a Falcons fan I know Julio has the tendency to to drop passes as well as having poor form (catching with his body).

    With that said, I wouldn’t trade him for any other receiver in the league. He’s the closest thing to T.O. after the catch, meaning he basically morphs into OJ Simpson. His best asset though is the fact he matured into a professional instead of a diva. The path he would take was shaky at first.

    • Jimmy Price

      WRONG, Julio used to drop passes when he first entered the league. He’s been money the last couple years. He has 59 consecutive catches without a drop. No drops since Week 12 in 2014.
