    There is no planet where Fitz and AJ Green are better than Amari Cooper or Gallup or CD Lamb and Gallup. Just none. Godwin and Antonio Brown run circles around them and Godwin is a much better slot receiver than Fitz. I can think of 10 guys right now i'd rather have in the slot. You are basing your opinion based on name recognition. Fitz may have a bigger name than Godwin but he's nowhere near as good.

    Lockette is not even a #2....he and Metcalf are like 1a and 1b.

    You can't have the best receiving group in the league even if one of those guys is Michael Thomas.

    with no true QB, i don't think we're not gonna hear a lot from Michael Thomas than in past, for quite awhile - in fact i'm hearing rumors Saints maybe shopping Thomas.

    Other than maybe at Atl, Minn, TB and maybe Dallas (Lamb?), I can't think many (or any) teams with better WR2s better than Lockett.
    1050 yards and 10 TDs is strong

    Nice list ;)

    - Watkins is no longer with KC Chiefs, (hard to believe Cowboys once targeted him to replace Dez)
    .-ex-Cincy great AJ Green now with Ariz ,
    - last heard Fitz was undecided about retirement or returning

    I maybe in the minority but I mean it was clear Michael Thomas was force fed. I think he's a great receiver but he would have 10 catches in a game and 4 of them be for 10 yards lol. He was labeled as the best receiver in the league and I just never saw it personally.

    But then when you compare Hopkins to Cooper, there a lot of gap to add to Fitz and AJ

    I don’t disagree, I simply disagree with saying he’s the best. Those are the best you mentioned; he’s somewhere afterward.

    Miami’s gonna be up there too once Waddle’s put some yards up. Devante Parker is great, but they also have Will Fuller, he’s electric.

    I don't think Watkins and Hardeman are top shelf receivers- not even close. They are products of Mahommes mobility!

    No its not. You are telling me AJ Green and Fitzgerald in 2021 are even close to Gallup and Cee Dee Lamb right now?

    Through 5 games last year Dallas WR's were on pace for 1356,1385 and 1113 yards

    We will see how they do this full year but any team would be hard pressed to top that with it's top 3

    I don't even think its Mahomes mobility. He's not the most mobile guy in the world. He's not Lamar or even Deshaun Watson in that regard.

    Hardeman and Watkins benefit from having Kelce and Tyreke Hill lol.

    I'm not even sure that's been done in history by 3 receivers...I don't think it would've happened honestly. I don't think you can even consistently do what the Cowboys did last year trailing in all those games like that.

    In mobility, I mean ability to move around the pocket and create time for his receivers to get open off the original route.

    If you go strictly top 3 WR's from each team, Cooper, Gallup and Lamb, than I'd say we are right behind with the Bucs' with Evans, Godwin and Brown.
    If you allow substitutions 3rd WR for TE's, we probably fall down the list somewhat.

    Oh gotcha. I mean that's a big part of it. But we saw what happened in the Super Bowl when he had no time to throw. He was cooked.

    I think those two are right on the brink of retirement.....a shell of their former selves.
