The Twitter page for PFF Fantasy Football sent out a tweet asking fans who is WR1 in a comparison of the Eagles All-Pro A.J. Brown and Cowboys star CeeDee Lamb.
Brown “respectfully” chimed in, dismissing any comparisons or debate about the two as players.
Brown finished last season with 88 catches (13th NFL) for an Eagles franchise record 1,496 yards (4th), 11 touchdowns (tied for 3rd), and 17.0 yards per catch (4th).
Brown was able to post those numbers while playing next to DeVonta Smith, who posted 95 catches for 1,195 yards and seven touchdowns with a 12.6 average.
Lamb had 107 catches (5th NFL) for 1,359 yards (6th NFL) and nine touchdowns (tied for 6th) while averaging 12.7 yards (41st NFL) per catch.
The two receivers are undoubtedly different. Brown does his work on the outside, stretching the field for the Eagles as Jalen Hurts’ top deep threat. Lamb, meanwhile, led all receivers with 867 receiving yards from the slot, per PFF.
The Eagles star wide receiver does not like the comparison at all. Comparing these two would be like ranking an offensive tackle on the same spectrum as an NFL guard or asking someone if a slot corner is as good at his job as a slot receiver is at his.
Brown is the better player. By the way Jalen Hurts is better than Dak Prescott and the Eagles are better than the Cowboys.
