Julio Jones is the finest wide receiver on the planet and we’ll fight anyone who says different.
There are a lot of different ways to measure how efficient any given receiver is, but the Pro Football Focus stat of yards per route run is the most effective. In this metric, Jones blows the competition away.
For the fourth consecutive season, Jones is leading the NFL in yards per route run, averaging 2.88 in 2018.
As for their more subjective grading system, Jones ranks No. 3 in the league at his position with a 90.3 overall grade. Only DeAndre Hopkins and Michael Thomas rate higher.
