My overall ranking might be too low on the No. 1 wide receiver who has now finished inside the top-three at his position in each of the last four years, but passing on a volume running back is hard to do. Brown is as consistent as they come, as he's now posted at least WR2 numbers in 57 of his last 77 games, which amounts to 74 percent of the time. The only wide receivers who were able to accomplish that in just one year (2017) were Deandre Hopkins and Michael Thomas. He's the No. 1 wide receiver and it's not even debatable at this point. He's like a fine wine that gets better with age. If you want to take him as the third player off the board, there's no issue with that. If you're fortunate to land Jones late in the first, consider yourself one lucky person. While some have said he's inconsistent, the numbers tell a different story. He's finished with WR1 numbers in 40.4 percent of his career games, which ranks second to only Odell Beckham Jr. since 2001. If you think he's too "boom or bust," the only players who have posted a higher WR3 percentage than his (73.4 percent) are Beckham Jr., Antonio Brown, A.J. Green, and Michael Thomas. He's a stud who is due for some positive touchdown regression. He might be the only one who can compete with Brown for the top wide receiver spot. While some will say Calvin Ridley could steal some targets, he will also put safeties away from Jones at times.

QB List
In my heart of hearts I really wanted DeAndre Hopkins to usurp Brown for the #1 spot but it just couldn't happen this year. The consensus #1 fantasy receiver for what has seemed like forever now (only 4 years), Brown combines a monstrous target share with truly elite route running and hands to possess the highest realistic weekly upside of any receiver. While James Washington attempts to fill the hole Martavis Bryant left, Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster will be sure to shoulder more of the target load for an explosive Steelers offense. The only downside on Brown lies in Ben Roethlisberger's more than questionable health, but Brown's upside trumps any concerns one would have long-term.The perennial fantasy stud slots in at #5 this year for me for two reasons: years of dents and dings which have slowed him down in-season cannot be ignored, and of course the extremely talented offensive group he plays within. While Jones dominated his offense last year, his team will be returning a healthy Devontae Freeman to the backfield AND adding first-round rookie Calvin Ridley to the mix with a frankly underrated #2 in Mohamed Sanu. Jones is still elite in every way, just not with the same elevated floor we've seen previously.
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
Brown beats out the other top receivers due to his consistency and extremely high floor. Beckham and Hopkins have just as much upside as Brown, but they just haven't proven they have that consistency yet.What do you do with a talent like Jones, who can't seem to score touchdowns? You rank him high because he still put up great numbers without the touchdowns, plus he can sometimes, once in a blue moon, will get into the end zone. And, Jones' three touchdowns last season were an outlier even for him, so expect 6-8, which are around his average. If he would have gotten just six touchdowns this season, he would have finished as a top-four fantasy receiver.
Jody Smith
FantasyPros
No need to overthink this: Brown is about as safe a bet as there is in fantasy football. Worthy of No. 1 overall status, Brown is an excellent value anywhere after the No. 4 pick. We should see a positive TD regression out of Jones, who struggled mightily in the red zone in the first season with Steve Sarkisian as the play caller. Wothy of No. 2 WR slotting, Jones is a nice value at the top of Round 2.
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
There may not be a safer fantasy investment than Brown, who remarkably topped all receivers in PPR scoring for the fourth straight season despite missing two games. He has averaged 116 catches and 1,596 yards per season since 2013, when he finished a paltry third. For good measure he torched an elite Jaguars secondary (7-132-2 TDs) in a postseason shootout. Anyone who doesn't peg the future Hall of Famer as the undisputed top WR (and top-five overall choice in all formats) is probably is just eager to be a contrarian at any cost.Jones is a 6'3" pass-catching cyborg who received 11 targets inside the 10. He scored three times. He has yet to compile a double-digit touchdown campaign since 2012, so drafters can't ignore the issue when choosing their team's cornerstones. They also can't ignore his four straight 1,400-yard seasons, which elevated him to finish no lower than WR8 in standard or PPR. Simply pairing that production with six or seven TDs will pay off his No. 14 overall ADP.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
If you are looking for safety in the first round, you'll find much more of it in Brown than any of the running backs. He has been a top three wideout each of the past four seasons and is as durable as they come.Don't buy into the narrative that Jones is either inconsistent or injury prone. He has been just a step behind Antonio Brown in both of those over the past several seasons and is a near-lock to return top-ten value at the position for the fifth consecutive season. Jones is holding out, but it is not expected to carry into the season.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
He's been a top 3 WR for the past four years.Julio had 1,400 yards and plenty of red zone opportunity. If he wasn't on the (historically) negative side of TD variance, people would've thought very differently about his 2017 season. @Michael_Dubner He'll be 30 during the season this year, but he's the leading WR in yards per game by a solid amount. He's lacked TD upside his whole career, but is bound to rebound after only catching 1 TD in 18 redzone targets last year. I'll wait for a couple of boom weeks and sell high or ride him out as he collects 150 targets for the next 3-4 years. The Athletic's Jeff Schultz reports the Falcons have informed Julio Jones he will not receive a new contract this year. Jones skipped OTAs and minicamp to show displeasure with his contract, which makes him the league's eighth-highest-paid receiver. theathletic.com
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
He's still the best in the game until proven otherwise. Draft accordingly.Contract woes are troubling but Jones should be a top 5 beast per usual
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
Continues to amaze with his work ethic outshining and outproducing more talented receivers league wideRyan will remain maddenning for going away for Julio for what seems like quarters at a time but he will have enough big games to make up for it
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Brown averaged a league-leading 14.8 fantasy points per game among fantasy receivers and he should continue to be a fantasy star in 2018. Jones had only 3 touchdowns in 2017, but he did average 10.2 fantasy points per game. He is still a WR1, although I do not think he is worth a first round pick if he is not going to score double-digit touchdowns.
