    I know I am in the vast minority. But I honestly believe DJ can be a top 3 receiver in the league. I feel like he is already a top 10 guy. I think he is going to blow up this year and leave little doubt who the #1 guy is.

    Yes, his play dropped off after Bens play dropped off a cliff after the Dallas game. It’s not a coincidence.

    It’s fair to speculate about what type of QB play the receivers will get this year but I will never pine away for 2021 Ben. Guy couldn’t even throw to the MOF.

    Allen Robinson had a 1250 yard 6 TD season with Trubisky. I fully expect him to be the QB the whole season, hopefully he has improved some of his flaws since Chicago.

    I’m not saying he is a shoo-in for a TOP 10 finish, nearly that he has the talent to do it. If you look at the list of guys, he could sneak in at 10.

    In no particular order:

    Kupp
    Adams
    Tyreek
    Ja’Marr
    Jefferson
    McLaurin
    Diggs
    Godwin
    Evans
    Deebo

    Those are the most likely and then there are guys like these:

    Pittman
    Allen
    Waddle
    Metcalf

    I’m sure I’m forgetting guys but DJ and Claypool could both find themselves in a position to crack that list. I expect DJ to have a better season then Claypool.

    As long as they go over 1,000 and have good seasons I don’t care where they finish.

    Upside Smupside...Give me results...Martavis Bryant had upside, probably more...He flamed out ( for other reasons ) but the point is...

    This is a a result driven League..Not what " could be " or potential, or ceiling, or upside, or whatever you want to call it..

    I just think this Dude is one of those guys who talks, talks, talks ( kinda like his HC ) but doesn't do much...

    I like the opposite...Guys like Hines, Aaron Smith, Farrior, Heath...Who didn't talk much...But PRODUCED!

    I'm with you on this. Kid just oozes talent. If he can just figure out the mental game, he could easily be a top 5 WR in this league in a very similar way that AB was. Most of his issues are just not being on the same page with the QB all the time and he had that spat of concentration drops in his second year. If he figures out the mental aspect, or just clicks with his QB, it could be scary. He definitely has the ability to be a 1500 yard 10TD wr. The only other receiver on our team that can match that talent at the moment is Pickens. I'm super excited for that kid.
