Falcons | Julio Jones should be fine

Mon, 25 Sep 2017 11:37:17 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (back) should be good to go in Week 4 despite suffering a back injury in Week 3, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

Fantasy Tip: Jones was relatively disappointing last week but managed to eclipse the 100-yard mark. He's an automatic start as long as he is active. Don't be scared by the ailment even if he is limited in practice.

Falcons | Julio Jones posts 108 yards in win

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 21:54:19 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones posted five receptions for 108 yards on nine targets in Week 2 against Green Bay.

Fantasy Tip: It was a little disappointing for fantasy owners, as Jones had 93 yards at halftime. However, the team built a giant lead early in the third quarter and shifted to a run-heavy offense with very limited pass attempts to keep his second-half numbers down. He'll look to keep up the solid production in Week 3 at Detroit.

Falcons | Mediocre stat line for Julio Jones

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 15:37:01 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones hauled in four receptions for 66 yards on five targets in Week 1 against the Bears.

Fantasy Tip: The Chicago secondary did a good job of taking Jones out of the game and forcing Matt Ryan to look more to Mohamed Sanu, Tevin Coleman and Taylor Gabriel. Jones will look for better results in Week 2 on Sunday Night Football against the visiting Packers.

Falcons | Julio Jones eyeing 2,000 yards?

Fri, 08 Sep 2017 18:59:55 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones said a 2,000-yard season "definitely can be done," but he is going to take whatever the defense gives him.

Fantasy Tip: Jones was within striking distance of 2,000 yards in 2015, and he has topped 1,400 yards in each of the last three years. He is a plug-and-play WR1 against any opponent and a top-three fantasy option at his position against the Bears in Week 1.

Falcons | Julio Jones to see limited time Saturday

Fri, 25 Aug 2017 15:31:26 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) will receive a few snaps in the preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals Saturday, Aug. 26. Jones missed the first two preseason games because he is coming off offseason foot surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Jones does not need many reps to get ready for the start of the season, so the team will take things easy with him. Jones should be one of the leading receivers in the NFL this season and will be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

Falcons | Julio Jones might play Saturday

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 11:48:47 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) could see the field against the Arizona Cardinals Saturday, Aug. 26, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

Fantasy Tip: If Jones does play, it probably won't be for long. The Falcons don't want to risk aggravating their star wide receiver's foot ailment right before the season starts. As it stands, Jones should be one of the first few receivers selected in fantasy drafts.

Falcons | Julio Jones to sit Saturday

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 12:00:32 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) will not play against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, Aug. 20.

Fantasy Tip: It appears Jones is being put in bubble wrap in August for all intents and purposes, but he has been participating in practice on a regular basis and the Falcons have been clear they expect to use him more often in the red zone this season. Jones also has nothing left to prove to the Falcons either, so making sure he is 100 percent for Week 1 is a prudent move. He is well worth a top-five overall pick in fantasy drafts.

Falcons | Julio Jones to sit out preseason opener

Tue, 08 Aug 2017 10:08:08 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones will not play in the preseason opener against the Miami Dolphins on Thursday, Aug. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Jones said a few days ago he was easing his way back into things after offseason foot surgery and there has been zero concern coming out of Atlanta regarding his status for Week 1. While he does have a history of foot problems, taking it slow is the prudent move for a 28-year-old who has nothing to prove during the preseason. Jones is a sound investment as a top-five receiver in the first round of all drafts.

Falcons | Julio Jones, Taylor Gabriel limited

Mon, 07 Aug 2017 15:45:13 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) and WR Taylor Gabriel (leg) were limited during practice Monday, Aug. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Both Jones and Gabriel are being eased back into practice but are in no danger of missing the start of the regular season. Jones is one of the most consistent receivers in the NFL and should be a No. 1 WR in all leagues. Gabriel was a factor in the Falcons passing game in 2016 and finished with 579 yards and six touchdowns. He can be seen as a No. 4 receiver in leagues with the chance to be a flex option against certain teams.

Falcons | Julio Jones easing back into practice

Sat, 05 Aug 2017 09:53:33 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones was on the sidelines for most of full-team practice Friday, Aug. 4, although he has been slowly getting more reps in practice after having offseason foot surgery. "I feel great about (taking it slow). We all know what I can do. … Whenever I'm ready, I'm ready. ... I can't really say when I'm going to go - like in the preseason - but whenever I'm ready, I'm going to go," Jones said.

Fantasy Tip: There has been zero concern about Jones' readiness for the season and no reason to push him given his history of foot injuries. Jones is a top-three fantasy receiver and has a great shot to finish at the top provided he can stay healthy; his schedule is among the easiest of any receiver in the NFL this season.
