re: Best WR (It's not OBJ)

ODB is only top 5 if you include age and contract. Otherwise he just can't be.

Which of these guys will ODB be better than on opening day of next year.

Megatron
Antonio Brown
Julio Jones
AJ Green
Dez Bryant
Demaryius Thomas

There are a bunch of guys after that that are in the discussion, but if you want ODB to be top 5, you've got to knock two of these guys off. So, NL soldier, using your eyetest, which of these is worse than ODB.

Sounds good but we need a ranking metric.

The problem with OBJ is that his initials seem like they stand for Old Blow Job, and no one wants head from a grandma.

re: Best WR (It's not OBJ)

Also isn't Megatron like 32? Lol at trading Odell for him or always injured AJ/Julio

Demaryius is close I guess but one guy is outperforming the other with Eli instead of Peyton.

I'd easily kick Julio and Demaryius out for OBJ. Dez probably as well.

Megatron, Green, Brown, OBJ, and Gordon would be my top five for opening day next year.

I think there is a good chance he is better on a per game basis than 2 of these guys next year, but there is absolutely no way I could tell you which two. He's a top 5 WR asset (considering age, contract, and health) and top 10 WR. Its pretty tough to get a definitive consensus on anything beyond that.

the discussion is how good they are right now. If you knew you could only have them for one game and they are 100% healthy who would you take. OBJ's age, contract, and potential for improvement give you absolutely 0 benefit.

Still laughing at the thought of trading Beckham for Jordy Decker.

Ya, I don't think its at all clear he's obviously top 5, but I take him over Jordy without thinking twice.

Over the last 7 weeks Peyton Manning's PFF grade is lower than Mark Sanchez
I'll just leave this here as a note about sample sizes. OBJ obviously has insane talent and is very good, but saying that he is definitively top 5 is absurd.

re: Best WR (It's not OBJ)

Only getting 14 games max before injury from AJG considering his semiannual siestas v joe haden.

Opening day next year top five:

GRONK
Gordon
OBJ
Julio
Dez

Megatron sadly is breaking down. I guess as its opening day he'd be theoretically healthy and could take Dez or Julio's spot.

He's a system receiver buoyed largely upon Todd Haley's genius.

You're trying to bet on something that's impossible to bet on. Hence NLSoldier's posts about eye test
