Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) will be ready for the start of training camp, as expected, but will be limited.
Fantasy Tip: This is definitely good news for a top-tier fantasy wide receiver. Jones will likely take it easy throughout training camp and the preseason as he continues to heal. When healthy, Jones has top-five WR potential in standard leagues.

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) was able to run routes during OTAs and has been walking normally as he continues his recovery from a broken right foot. Jones also said that the rehab process has made him stronger overall. "I feel great," Jones said. "I'm back doing the little things that I used to do. I'm back to the old Julio. I feel like I'm actually stronger now because I've been doing back squats; getting my quads stronger. Muscles in my hamstrings."
Fantasy Tip: While there is always a little added risk when drafting a player coming off of a serious injury, Jones' recovery appears to be on track. When healthy, he is a big-play weapon in Atlanta's pass-heavy offense, and he should still be considered a strong No. 2 fantasy WR at this point.

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones said he isn't concerned about inking a long-term deal before his rookie year expires, but he'd like to stay with the Falcons. "If they are willing to have me, I'm all for it. I love Atlanta and I want to be here," Jones said. "All I can is work and get back in shape, fix this foot and get back out there so my teammates can depend on me, and also have my bosses depend on me."

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) is being extremely cautious not to return too soon from his foot injury. He was recently cleared to resume running routes during organized team activities, but Jones said he won't take part in team drills during a mandatory minicamp next week. "It is a serious injury, and knowing that I broke the same bone in a different spot over the course of two years. So it's a very serious matter, and we're not trying to play with it," Jones said. "We're taking all the precautions before throwing me back out there and just saying, 'He's ready to go.' I feel great, I feel good, but at the same time, we have to take it slow because the season is still far away." Jones hasn't taken any passes from QB Matt Ryan this offseason.

Atlanta Falcons head coach Mike Smith said WR Julio Jones (knee) would not be doing much during the offseason and the goal is to have him ready for training camp.
Fantasy Tip: It is wise for the team to take it slow with Jones at this point in the year. Barring a setback, Jones should be good to go in training camp.
