1) Julio Jones is now closer to Larry Fitzgerald, who is SECOND all-time in career receiving yards than, than Fitzgerald is to #1, Jerry Rice. 

2) Julio Jones is now fortieth (40th!) on the all time receiving yards rankings.  

The gap between 1 and 2 is more than the gap between 2 and 40

3) Jerry Rice is a freak.

You’d take Julio’s 1st 10 seasons over Rice’s first 10.  It will be the final 10 years by Rice that is tough to match

He would need to average 1,201 yards over the next 10 seasons to surpass Rice. The next 3 seasons he will be ahead of the pace (probably around 1,500 yards each season) but then when he's 34, there could be a huge drop-off.

Impressive how Julio has 220 more yards in 14 fewer games (almost an entire season). It's the TD difference that stands out but Julio is yardage and reception beast.

Jerry Rice was a TD machine in the era DB would grab and hit.
