The numbers for Atlanta Falcons receiver Julio Jones through three games are simply mind-boggling.
In fact, no receiver in NFL history has matched what he’s done to start the 2015 season.
Jones caught 12 passes for 164 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday’s win over the Dallas Cowboys, giving him 34 receptions, 440 receiving yards and four scores through three games.
No receiver has ever caught 34 passes during the first three games of a season. Jones is on pace to catch 181, which would beat the current NFL record—held by Marvin Harrison—by 38. Speaking of shattering records, his 146.7 receiving yards per game put him on pace to beat Calvin Johnson’s single-season record of 1,964 by almost 400 yards.
While four touchdowns in three games isn’t other-worldly, he is on track to catch 21. Only two receivers in NFL history have caught 20 or more touchdowns in one season.
Jones’ current 16-game projection: 181 catches, 2,347 yards and 21 touchdowns.
