2021 Fantasy Football Wide Receiver Draft Rankings: Who benefits most from Julio Jones trade?

·1-min read

It has been a wild offseason for former Atlanta Falcons star wide receiver (and living legend) Julio Jones.

Jones' name had been floated as a possible trade candidate, thanks in no small part to his salary cap hit. The NFL draft came and went though — the Falcons selected freak-of-nature tight end Kyle Pitts — and no deal was done.

And then in late May, Shannon Sharpe made a phone call live, on-air, on "Undisputed."

Jones answered, and, after being asked about his future with the Falcons, he simply replied, "Oh man, I'm outta there, man."

And with that, the rumor mill was set ablaze! Less than a month later, it was reported that Jones was traded to the Tennessee Titans for draft picks.

Even though Jones is the only player involved in the trade, there's actually three wideouts most affected by the move: Jones himself, Calvin Ridley, and Titans star, A.J. Brown.

Who do you think will end up being the best fantasy WR out of that trio? Jones, who will now be part of one of the best offenses in the league and one unafraid to take deep play-action shots? Will it be Brown, now that opposing defenses will be unable to key in on him alone on the outside? Or will it be Ridley, who will be the undisputed no. 1 receiver in Atlanta?
