Falcons | Julio Jones listed as questionable

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 12:05:14 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) was limited during practice Saturday, Sept. 24, and is listed as questionable for Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Jones has said he will play against the New Orleans Saints this week, but owners will need to continue to monitor the situation. Jones will come with some risk but should be a starting candidate in all leagues if he is active.

Falcons | Atlanta won't force the ball to Julio Jones

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 10:04:13 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones only has 13 targets through two games this season after recording 204 last year, and offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan doesn't appear interested in changing that approach anytime soon. Six Falcons have four or more receptions through the first two games, while TE Jacob Tamme has two more catches and three more targets than Jones. "You really hope (Jones) is one-on-one, but it's nice when he's not and he's got some bad looks, there's a lot of other opportunities out there (for the other players). … You don't have to force it into tough looks. You can go where the coverage tells you. … You might not have the same numbers for (Jones) and stuff, but I think the result ends up improving the offense," Shanahan said.

Fantasy Tip: Shanahan has a long history of feeding his top receiver, so this is quite the departure from the norm for him. As nice as he makes it sound, however, defenses are going to be content with the Falcons trying to beat them with Mohamed Sanu and Tamme as opposed to Jones, Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman. Even with a slightly reduced target share this season, Jones is still a weekly WR1.

Falcons | Julio Jones expected to play

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 07:22:26 -0700

Atlanta Falcons head coach Dan Quinn said WR Julio Jones (calf) is expected to be available for Week 3's game against the New Orleans Saints, even though he missed practice Friday, Sept. 23.

Fantasy Tip: The Falcons have a Monday night game versus New Orleans and owners should check to see if Jones practices Saturday, Sept. 24, to have a better idea of his status. DFS players should look for safer options this week due to the uncertainty surrounding the number of snaps he will see.

Falcons | Julio Jones sits again

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 17:50:52 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to see if Jones will be able to practice Saturday, Sept. 24, to have a better idea on his status for Week 3. He should be a starter in all leagues if he is active, but owners should have another option ready in case he is ruled out.

Falcons | Julio Jones dealing with calf strain

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 11:05:04 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) has been diagnosed a calf strain, although it is not believed to be serious, according to ESPN's Vaughn McClure.

Fantasy Tip: If there is any good news to come out of this, it may be that Jones didn't aggravate the ankle injury that has dogged him since late in the preseason. Jones is seemingly always battling through one lower-body injury or another, but he keeps showing up on game day. Anytime Jones is on the field, he is a WR1 in fantasy.

Falcons | Julio Jones expected to be fine

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 05:24:49 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (leg, ankle) missed the final drive of the Week 2 game with a leg injury that wasn't related to his previous left ankle injury, but the team expects him to be fine.

Fantasy Tip: Jones has reached the end zone each week, but he has just nine catches for 172 yards, which is a little lackluster for him. He could unleash it in Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints, though, and he'll remain an elite WR1.

Falcons | Julio Jones like the no-huddle

Fri, 16 Sep 2016 20:37:16 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones scored a 25-yard touchdown in Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers out of the no-huddle offense, and he said he likes the way offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan uses the no-huddle.

Fantasy Tip: Jones is a must-start player in standard formats, but with Atlanta set to face an Oakland defense that was gashed through the air in Week 1, he could also make a strong building block in DFS games.

Falcons | Julio Jones ready for Week 2

Fri, 16 Sep 2016 09:41:12 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) was a full participant in practice Friday, Sept. 16, and will play Week 2 against the Oakland Raiders Sunday, Sept. 18, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

Fantasy Tip: Expect Jones to be nursed through practices most weeks, but all that matters is his production on game day. Lock Jones in as an elite wide receiver in all fantasy settings and start him confidently. Oakland surrendered 419 passing yards in Week 1, after all.

Falcons | Julio Jones to be limited

Thu, 15 Sep 2016 10:26:57 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) will be limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 15, according to head coach Dan Quinn. Quinn said Jones hopefully will be a full participant in practice Friday, Sept. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Jones was limited last week but was able to play and likely will be on the field again in Week 2. He should still be a starting candidate in all leagues, but owners may want to lower their expectations a bit because of the injury.

Falcons | Julio Jones limited in practice

Wed, 14 Sep 2016 09:51:34 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 14, according to head coach Dan Quinn. Quinn noted Jones should be a larger participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 15, though.

Fantasy Tip: Jones seems to always be nursing minor ailments, but he usually shows up with a big stat line week in, week out. He's a slam-dunk No. 1 receiver as long as he's active, which doesn't appear to be in question leading into the Week 2 road date against the Oakland Raiders.
