Who will lead the Falcons in receiving touchdowns?

New, comments

Will it be Julio Jones, for a change, or someone else?

NFL: Super Bowl LI-New England Patriots vs Atlanta Falcons Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Falcons have oodles of receiving options. Gobs of receiving options. A plethora of receiving options. The question today is which one will lead the team in touchdowns.

This isn’t as straightforward a question as it would be on some teams. Julio Jones is arguably the best receiver in the NFL, but he’s never snagged a ton of touchdowns, even during his most dominant campaigns. Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman score plenty on the ground. Mohamed Sanu, Taylor Gabriel, and Justin Hardy all showed themselves to be capable options when it comes to finding the end zone. Heck, Austin Hooper is one of the most promising tight ends in the NFL. You could pick any of those guys and I wouldn’t blink.

My pick is Austin Hooper. What’s yours?
