Julio Jones was the most clutch 4th quarter receiver in the NFL in 2018

Julio is the most clutch WR in football. Julio Jones is a big-game player who’s consistently stepped up for his team in the biggest moments. A wide receiver who’s had a game of 180 receiving yards and two touchdowns in an NFC Championship Game on two separate occasions, and someone who made THE play to win the Super Bowl (until that was undone by an unwillingness to run the football immediately afterward). We’ve known for a long time that Jones is one of the most clutch players in football; now the rest of the league is taking notice. Pro Football Focus graded him out as the best wide...

Dak is a good quarterback, but he needs to correct his footwork if this team’s going to take the next step. From the moment the Dallas Cowboys selected Dak Prescott 135th overall in the 2016 NFL Draft many of us fans were stoked. And it wasn’t because we thought necessarily that Prescott could be the long term answer. We weren’t thinking long term. After all, the team had Tony Romo and he still had plenty left in the tank. Or so we thought. The happiness from having Dak stemmed more from the idea that he could keep the team afloat should something happen to Romo. He’s very good at...
