Falcons | Julio Jones could practice in full Sunday

Sat, 30 Jul 2016 17:18:39 -0700

Updating previous reports, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) participated in individual drills Saturday, July 30, and could receive full clearance for practice as soon as Sunday, July 31. He has been bothered by an apparent foot injury since training camp opened Thursday, July 28, and was spotted rolling his left foot over a ball on the sidelines while team drills were taking place Saturday.

Fantasy Tip: Despite this minor setback at the beginning of camp, Jones should continue to be viewed as one of the NFL's elite wide receivers and is worth selecting in the early rounds of all fantasy leagues.

Falcons | Julio Jones will be fully back soon

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 12:57:24 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (undisclosed) will be a full participant in practice "in the next day or so," according to head coach Dan Quinn. Quinn decided to sit Jones out during team drills Friday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: Jones is an elite fantasy option with some upside to improve in the touchdown column after scoring just 14 times over the past two seasons. The Falcons are just being cautious with their star, and Jones should continue to be drafted as one of the first few picks in all fantasy drafts.

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (undisclosed) is sitting out of team drills Friday, July 29.

Falcons | Julio Jones will practice Friday

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 12:19:48 -0700

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (undisclosed) will return to practice Friday, July 29, but head coach Dan Quinn would not disclose the nature of Jones' injury.

"He had a little tweak, so we just decided to hold (him). He'll likely be back in there for tomorrow. He could have gone back in today and was asking me to, but I decided not to."

Fantasy Tip: Jones is an elite fantasy option who projects to be selected in the first half of Round 1 of drafts. He has an extremely high floor given his 240 catches over the past two seasons with over 1,500 receiving yards in each campaign. However, there is also upside for better fantasy production if Jones can find the end zone more frequently. He's only scored 14 touchdowns the past two years, after all.

Falcons | Julio Jones limps off

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 08:04:21 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (undisclosed) left practice hobbled Thursday, July 28, and is flexing his legs on the sideline.

Fantasy Tip: Jones is one of the best players in fantasy and should be taken early in the first round in most formats. It doesn't sound serious, but we'll keep you posted.

Falcons | More deep balls for Julio Jones?

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 19:08:46 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones is expected to see a lot more work down the field this season, as offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan anticipates taking more deep shots. The team added WR Mohamed Sanu, TE Austin Hooper and WR Justin Hardy continues to develop, and Shanahan is hopeful their addition will help keep added defensive attention off of Jones.

Fantasy Tip: Jones still had a giant season for the Falcons and his fantasy owners, leading the league with 1,871 receiving yards. However, he managed to find the end zone just eight times, which was a bit of a disappointment. Regardless, after 136 grabs and a league-high in yardage, he is an obvious first- or second-round pick in all fantasy formats and a bona fide first-rounder in points-per-reception (PPR) leagues.

Falcons | Fewer touchdowns recently for Julio Jones

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 05:43:53 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones scored 18 touchdowns on 133 catches through the first two seasons of his career, and over the past three years, he has caught just 16 touchdowns on 281 receptions.

Fantasy Tip: While Jones remains an elite fantasy receiver, it sure would be nice to see double-digit touchdowns in his stat line at the end of the season, especially in standard leagues. He is a first-round option in all formats with slightly more valuable in PPR setups.
