He is top 10. I love watching him progress.
he is stringing strong consistent performances together........all a coach can ask for--to know what a position will give them week after week and then scheme around it
I also think that mess with his Mom must have been tough on him mentaly. He has played a lot better since the charges were dropped.
Yeah, it doesn't get mentioned, but his football conditioning seems to not be a problem at all this season.
Talent wise no question. He's now producing like a top WR. He just needs to continue being a consistent force and he'll be soon in the discussion among the top 5-7 WRs. Let's see how he closes out the season
Yes! I can't come up with 10 guys you are better.
Lets see him finish the season around 1,200-1,400 yards and 10TDs. The 8 TDs is probably enough, but I don't want to see him finish the season without anymore TDs. Teams see him lighting it up now and will work harder to stop him. If they can't..... Then we will discuss it.
these are all valid points and he is clearly improving but it is too early
to be a top 10 receiver, more important than "taking over games" is consistency
be where you need to be and catch everything thrown at you
even now, his big plays are on broken plays and less on designed plays
Dez is getting there, lets see how he finishes out the year and then next year how he starts out
then we talk if he is top 10
I don't think there is evidence that his big plays are on broken plays.
He is top ten right now. He needs to continue this trend to solidify himself. But I guarantee you, the threat that Dez poses will open up a lot for the rest of the offense. He needs to have a big game in Cincy. Sticky this thread!
He is playing like it right now. Took 3 years to learn the playbook but he did it.
look at the TD in the last game as an example
He really is....and it's sad.
:lmao:camron is the goat.
Teams have been trying all year. He regularly gets double coverage.
I don't know if you meant to say 70 catches, 900 yards or eight TD catches but he hasn't had a combination of the three every year. Now he's had at least one of the three every year however.
He's certainly played like it the past 4 months. If he keeps it up then yes, he's easily a top 10 receiver. It's all about consistency though. Hopefully he can.
That's not what Adam said. He said only 7 guys have managed all three things together in ANY of their first three seasons.
And to answer all the "how do you know this" questions, you can get all this and much much more, very easily, from Pro Football Reference. (Actually, I shouldn't say that. Not sure of a direct way to get the "first 12 games" part of that.)
