Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to check on Jones' status when the inactive list comes out because he will be a game-time decision. He is a risky option but should be started in all leagues if he plays.

Fantasy Tip: With Julio Jones already a game-time decision due to turf toe, expect a lot of the running game and Taylor Gabriel this week. Gabriel has already been performing like a low-end WR1 with just a handful of targets each week, so he is in a potential blow-up spot should Atlanta give him closer to 10.

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) is listed as questionable on the Week 14 injury report and will be a game-time decision against the Los Angeles Rams. Head coach Dan Quinn reportedly expects Jones will play.
Fantasy Tip: This is a tough spot for Jones' owners. He is a tough customer and will probably gut it out, but this is a game in which the Falcons could take it easy on their ailing star and lean on the running game while taking shots with Taylor Gabriel. Owners with multiple WR2-quality options might want to sit Jones this week.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will have to check on Sanu's status later in the week to see if he is in danger of missing Week 14. He has been up and down in terms of his receiving yards over the last month but has received a decent number of targets this season. He could be a flex option in deeper leagues if he plays.

Fantasy Tip: Jones may be able to play in Week 14 even if he does not practice, but owners will need to check on his status later in the week. He will be a risky option for owners but should still be started if he plays. Owners will need other options ready in case Jones is ruled out.

Fantasy Tip: The team isn't as bubbly about Mohamed Sanu's (groin) status against Los Angeles Rams. This would put a bigger onus on Jones, who is a weekly WR1 across all formats.

Fantasy Tip: Julio Jones (toe) is also banged up, but he's expected to be able to play. Taylor Gabriel has been a big-play machine in recent weeks with four touchdowns in a four-game stretch. He'll be an interesting WR3 against the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Tip: Both Sanu and Julio Jones missed practice today, which suddenly makes Taylor Gabriel all the more intriguing. Jones and Sanu aren't necessarily out this week, but Gabriel will see more work if either of them, or both of them, are out or limited at all. Keep tabs on this situation as the week progresses.

Fantasy Tip: He has a midrange matchup against the Los Angeles Rams, and he remains an elite target in fantasy.
