The injury myth has been laughable as well. He has missed 17 games in 7 years, 12 of which came from a season ending injury. Dude plays hurt, because every nfl player plays hurt. There is just more of a spotlight on Jones because of his status in the fantasy realm.

Age is an issue, but still a few years off. Definitely not a Calvin issue. Calvin was being force fed on a terrible team that continued to lose. He was burnt out. Jones isn't being force fed and they are winning. He may have other reasons to walk but it isn't comparable.
Not missing games might be worse since you'll have to play him if he's out there regardless of if he's a decoy or not. Sometimes it's just better to sit and get better than to keep aggravating the injury.

There wasn't much of an inkling that Calvin Johnson was going to retire until he did and everyone was like, oh yeah, it was obvious that he was done even though it was a total surprise. Not saying Julio will retire. Just saying that players can get tired of the nagging injuries and think about quality of life after they have $100 million in the bank. There was a rash of players retiring around age 30 just a season or so ago. Just be open to selling your assets if the right offer comes in.

He's one of those elite assets that doesn't seem to perform like we think he should. It may not have come yet, but at some point, you just have to admit he's not in the AB, OBJ, Mike Evans tier.

Injuries are a real issue, even if he doesn't miss games. You still have to sweat out some games to see if he'll play, or worry that he'll be playing while hurt, or being used as a decoy. Like onetwothree mentioned, it's similar to the last couple seasons of Calvin Johnson. These things don't show up in the end of year stats.
I can't even believe what I'm reading. The last three years he has been the WR6, WR2, and WR7. How should he be performing?

I'm fine with not putting him in the OBJ/Evans tier because of his age, but let's not act like he's underperformed. Julio is still an elite talent. He's just on a struggling Falcons offense this year.

We're talking about Julio Jones here, right? He's been under 10 PPR points one time this entire season (in a down year). I'm completely fine with trading him for a good return (and have done so myself this offseason), but let's not act like we've been drastically overvaluing him for a couple years now.

I'm not worried about Julio at all since I see no concern with Julio himself.
Dude is still elite - the team has just transitioned to a more balanced team and the OC is substantially less aggressive than other OCs. The team has only thrown 7 TDs to WRs in the redzone all year. They don't feed Julio (although the HC keeps calling for it).

To say he is not in the elite tier is laughable because of one "down year" in which he is still 4th in the league in receiving yards. Yes, the touchdowns aren't coming but this community is so knee-jerk it is hilarious. I remember the freak out by so many people when Mike Evans had only 3 touchdowns in his second year. We aren't talking about some fall to being an irrelevant receiver. If him struggling and having an off-year is 4th in the league in receiving yards, give me that guy every time.

Evans has 160 less yards in 1 less game, should we start freaking out about him too?

In the last 3 years for Julio:
83/1409/6 in 14 games.
136/1871/8 in 16 games.
104/1593/6 in 15 games.

He should be getting in the end zone.

Most of my leagues are 0.5 ppr, so maybe that sways things a bit. He's currently WR17 ( 1 TD). Last year he was WR7 (6 TD) . In 2015 he was WR2 (8 TD).

He's been billed as a top tier WR. I'm saying he's not in that top tier, that's all. Part of that may be because he's got a high floor, but also rarely puts up a monster week for you, with multiple TDs & big yardage, like AB or OBJ.
Not all that counts can be counted. Not all that can be counted counts.

Curious to see a TY Hilton and Julio per game comparison over the last two years. I'm guessing it's pretty similar.

Sorry man, I just can't see your point here. He's been a top tier receiver consistently up until this season. You're acting like he's not been producing like an elite receiver when he definitely has up until this season. Fantasy points are fantasy points. Doesn't matter how they get them.

The thing that's so frustrating this year is they are finally targeting him tons in the redzone. I mean I've seen them miss several times on goal line fades and of course that drop the other week was killer. I agree with the sentiment that if the right offer came along maybe it's time to move and I can see the shades of Calvin, but still think you've got to consider him a top wr, fair if you want to knock him down out of the top 3 or 5 but certainly still in the top 10 for me. There's a few things happening, Ryan doesn't key on him and force feed him 17 targets a game anymore, the offense has regressed, and he's just had crappy luck on tds. I mean let's say he has even 5 tds at this point, we wouldn't be having this discussion.

FWIW, Julio is PFF's 2nd highest grade WR this season. Antonio Brown is #1.

Again, this is mostly a conversation that boils down to touchdowns. While some players are typically more likely to get touchdowns because of their size around the redzone, touchdowns remain a random occurence. Jones is on pace for 86 receptions and 1,258 yards. If you gave him 8 touchdowns along with that, is anyone concerned? That's easily a WR1 finish.

Because fantasy players hate streaky WR's (see Brandin Cooks narrative), even though 95% of WR's are streaky lol.

Agreed. This whole consistency narrative is like chasing Bigfoot. Gameflow, matchups and system determine too much for any player to be consistent. Antonio Brown may be the closest thing we ever get to it.
