Falcons | Julio Jones almost cracks 100

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 21:25:48 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones caught five passes for 98 yards against the New Orleans Saints on Thursday, Dec. 7. He was targeted a team-high 11 times.

Fantasy Tip: After getting shut down by Minnesota, Jones rebounded with a solid night's work against the Saints. While Jones has only three 100-plus-yard games on the year, Thursday marked the third time he's finished in the 90s. He'll be a strong WR1 next week against the same Buccaneers squad he eviscerated for 253 yards and two scores back in Week 12.

Falcons | Julio Jones held in check

Sun, 03 Dec 2017 14:00:00 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones caught two passes for 24 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Jones was being covered by Vikings CB Xavier Rhodes, which can explain his disappointing performance. He should have a better outing against the New Orleans Saints next week and should be a starting option in all leagues.

Falcons | Julio Jones not on injury report

Fri, 01 Dec 2017 12:33:04 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 1, but is not on the injury report for Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Jones will see his usual workload but likely will be covered by Minnesota Vikings CB Xavier Rhodes for most of the game. He should still be a No. 1 receiver in all leagues, but owners may want to lower their expectations a bit because of the matchup.

Falcons | Julio Jones limited in practice again

Thu, 30 Nov 2017 16:05:07 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) was limited in practice for the second consecutive day Thursday, Nov. 30.

Fantasy Tip: This is just standard protocol for one of the league's most talented players. Following his monstrous outburst this past weekend against the Buccaneers, owners should obviously continue to ride Jones as their WR1 and hope for the same significant results against a stout Vikings defense.

Falcons | Julio Jones one-of-a-kind with 250-yard gems

Wed, 29 Nov 2017 18:21:59 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones recorded 250 or more receiving yards in a game for the third time in his career with his performance in the team's Week 12 game Sunday, Nov. 26, against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. No other player in NFL history has ever done it more than once.

Fantasy Tip: As continually stressed, Jones was well overdue to post some monster numbers and touchdowns, and owners who stuck with him through the long haul were handsomely rewarded this past Sunday afternoon. Given his otherworldly talents, there's probably a lot more where that came from, so just keep firing up Jones as a WR1 with the utmost confidence.

Falcons | Julio Jones limited in practice

Wed, 29 Nov 2017 15:02:11 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Jones was likely just taking it easy on his ankle, and there isn't much to worry about. He was the NFC Offensive Player of Week 12 with his giant 12-253-2 stat line, and very quietly he is now over 1,000 yards receiving for the season.

Falcons | Julio Jones has monster game

Sun, 26 Nov 2017 13:59:27 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones caught 12 passes for 253 yards and two touchdowns against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Jones was having a solid season entering Week 12 but had a breakout performance against the Buccaneers. He is one of the best receivers in the NFL and should be a No. 1 receiver even though he will be facing a tough Minnesota Vikings defense.

Falcons | Julio Jones limited in practice yet again

Fri, 24 Nov 2017 15:33:20 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle, knee) was limited in practice for the third consecutive day Friday, Nov. 24.

Fantasy Tip: This is just the team managing Jones' reps, as he's perfectly fine for Sunday's matchup with the Buccaneers. Considering Tampa Bay is surrendering more passing yards than all but one team this season, Jones may deliver one of his trademark big stat lines. He's overdue for some touchdowns as well, so hopefully Week 12 begins his resurgence in that department.
