Falcons | Julio Jones a game-time decision?

Fri, 19 Dec 2014 11:37:32 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) missed another day of practice Friday, Dec. 19, and is listed as questionable for Week 16 against the New Orleans Saints. Jones will be a game-time decision, and he will test his hip Saturday, Dec. 20, before the team leaves town.

Fantasy Tip: If Jones ($7,800) is playing, he should put up nice numbers against a weak Saints defense for FantasyScore owners. The good news is you can check back Sunday morning to see if he's going. Even if Jones does play, Harry Douglas ($5,200) and Roddy White ($6,500) could be nice daily plays, with Douglas the more attractive option.

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 10:25:25 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) is not participating in the portion of practice open to the media Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Jones has a nice matchup against the New Orleans Saints this week, but there is a lot of risk in adding him to your FantasyScore lineup if he does play, especially if he is not close to full strength.

Falcons | Julio Jones could sit in Week 16

Tue, 16 Dec 2014 18:31:57 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) is expected to be ready to play in Week 16 against the New Orleans Saints. However, offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter indicated the possibility exists that Jones could sit for a second straight game. "It's hard when you don't know for sure if a guy is going to play no matter if it's Julio or not Julio," Koetter said Tuesday, Dec. 16. "We kind of have to have a contingency both ways. We have some 'what if Julio plays' and some 'what if Julio does not play.' We have both. That's one of the hardest things about not knowing if one of your best guys is going to go."

Fantasy Tip: Head coach Mike Smith indicated Monday that Jones would play after sitting in Week 15, but FantasyScore owners will want to play it safe if Jones is listed as questionable Friday when the official injury report comes out. He leads the NFL in receiving yards, and could fare well against a poor New Orleans pass defense, but there is just too much uncertainty right now. If Jones is out, Roddy White, Harry Douglas and Devin Hester each have added appeal.

Falcons | Jonathan Massaquoi must prove himself

Tue, 16 Dec 2014 16:00:26 -0800

Atlanta Falcons LB Jonathan Massaquoi (foot) still needs to show that he deserves to be on the field after returning from injury, according to head coach Mike Smith. "I think Massaquoi will do that, at least I'm hopeful he will. He's got something to offer. Last year, I thought he was one of our most improved defensive players. He's just got to show up."
