Falcons | Atlanta, Julio Jones to talk next offseason

Thu, 19 Jul 2018 13:14:35 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones will not receive a new deal at this point, but the Falcons have told Jones that they will work on his contract situation next offseason, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Jones may skip some time during training camp but should be on the field for Week 1. He is one of the top receivers in the NFL and should be selected in one of the first two rounds of all fantasy drafts.

Falcons | Julio Jones won't get new contract

Wed, 18 Jul 2018 22:30:40 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones was recently informed that the team had not budgeted to renegotiate Jones' contract in 2018 and have no plan to give him a raise for the upcoming season, according to The Athletic's Jeff Schultz. The Falcons did promise to renegotiate after the season, however, and hope that Jones will report to training camp on time.

Fantasy Tip: This is surely not what Jones wanted to hear, but the ball is now firmly in his court. Does he report, play out 2018 and hope the team keeps its word? Or does he sit out and try to leverage a Falcons team with championship aspirations to the negotiating table? We'll know more on July 26, which is when veterans are due to report. For the time being Jones has to be considered as a solid WR1 based on a lengthy history of top-level production.

Falcons | Austin Hooper looking to deliver

Tue, 17 Jul 2018 08:09:10 -0700

Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper said he is working to improve in the red zone. He stayed in Atlanta during the offseason to work with QB Matt Ryan. Head coach Dan Quinn said he's pumped about Hooper's potential in his third season.

Fantasy Tip: Hooper has caught 10 of 14 targets with four touchdowns in the red zone in his career, but he has to be more consistent to be more than a TE2 in fantasy.

Falcons | Julio Jones attends Matt Ryan's passing camp

Mon, 16 Jul 2018 23:33:01 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones attended QB Matt Ryan's annual offseason passing camp, per a Snapchat post by WR Calvin Ridley, who was also on hand. The other players that were in attendance included TEs Austin Hooper, Eric Saubert, WRs Justin Hardy, Mohamed Sanu, Marvin Hall, Russell Gage Jr. and Reggie Davis. Jones didn't attend the team's offseason program or mandatory minicamp and it's unknown if he'll be at training camp, which begins on Thursday, July 26.

Fantasy Tip: Jones is seeking a new contract but it doesn't look that will be an issue that potentially costs him games once the season begins in less than two months. Even though he shockingly managed only three touchdowns a year ago, Jones remains one of the true elite WR1s in the game and should be treated as such in all fantasy drafts.

Falcons | Austin Hooper needs consistency

Sun, 15 Jul 2018 19:11:42 -0700

Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper's position coach, Wade Harman, has "harped" on him about being more consistent this season, according to Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com.

Fantasy Tip: Hooper enjoyed a sizeable jump in production between his rookie and sophomore campaigns, finishing with 526 yards in 2017. Low-end TE1 production isn't out of the question, but Hooper should be drafted as a solid TE2.

Falcons | Calvin Ridley ready to contribute

Thu, 12 Jul 2018 20:45:41 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley will have the opportunity to "make an immediate impact," according to Herbie Teope of NFL.com, and Teope believes Ridley will take advantage of single coverage from opposing defenses.

Fantasy Tip: With Julio Jones drawing plenty of attention, Ridley should have a chance to break loose for some big plays. He should be selected in first round of rookie drafts, and he's worth the gamble as a WR4 in redraft formats.
