Julio Jones is favored to lead the league in receiving yardage

If/when the Falcons give receiver Julio Jones a new contract, Jones can be expected to earn it right away.

Caesers Entertainment has set the odds for the NFL’s receiving yardage leader, and Jones is the favorite at 4/1. Next come Texans receiver DeAndre Hopkins and Browns receiver Odell Beckham, Jr., who are both at 11/2. Former teammates Antonio Brown (now of the Raiders) and JuJu Smith-Schuster (still of the Steelers) have identical odds, at 6/1.

Bucs receiver Mike Evans comes in at 8/1, along with Packers receiver Davante Adams. Saints receiver Michael Thomas and Vikings receiver Adam Thielen are 10/1.

Three players are off the board, for entirely different reasons: Tyreek Hill, Doug Baldwin, and Rob Gronkowski.

Jones led the NFL last year, with 1,677 yards.

  1. Jones is probably a good bet to lead the league in receiving yards. He’s also a good bet to finish last in the league in touchdowns per reception.

  2. “Nope it will be Antonio Brown.

    Book it, Florio”

    Why you mad at Florio?😃

    He didn’t create the odds. Caesers Entertainment did.

  3. Doubt Adams will be the yardage leader at the end of the season but I’d bet good money he’s the TD leader.

    Considering he’s the only weapon Rodgers has on offense, he should probably lead the league in receptions, yards, and touchdowns.

    With Derek Carr? Please child….

  6. Don’t count Adams to be out of the running in either yards or TDs. Rodgers has stated he wants to throw to him more even though he had 1386 yards and 13 TDs last year while missing a game. The offensive line was improved in the off-season, which should help Rodgers stay in the pocket and be more patient/accurate. With Geronimo Allison as the WR2 and not a lot behind him, look for Adams to get targeted regularly by Rodgers (with an attitude) this year.

  7. This just in. Jones also leads the league in whining like a baby over the contract, which he signed.

  8. No Micheal Thomas? Dont count out one of the 3 top TEs either. Kelce, Ertz or rising star Kittle producing crazy yards is a very good possiblity.

    Well, we know it won’t be a Viking. Unless they sign a starting QB

    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@&&&

    With Cousins throwing for 800 yards and 7 TDS against the vaunted packer secondary. Imagine what would happen if the Vikings signed a starting QB. Once again you failed.
    That is all

  11. The Packers defense wasn’t great last year.

    That, along with the QB playing on a broken leg, gave us a bad 6 win season.

    I didn’t fail, the Vikings did.
