Falcons | Matt Ryan throwing with teammates

Tue, 29 Mar 2016 14:07:46 -0700

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan is getting together with WR Julio Jones, RB Devonta Freeman and other Falcons for passing sessions this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: It sure doesn't hurt for teammates to practice together well before the season starts. There's no telling how offseason comradery and chemistry can impact players during the regular season. Freeman and Jones should already be considered No. 1 players at their respective positions, while Ryan is in backup fantasy quarterback territory.

Falcons | Justin Hardy not No. 2 receiver yet

Wed, 02 Mar 2016 15:05:29 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Justin Hardy is not automatically the No. 2 wide receiver behind WR Julio Jones, according to head coach Dan Quinn. Quinn said there are a lot of options in free agency and the draft.

Fantasy Tip: The Falcons are obviously in need of another wide receiver to replace the irreplaceable Roddy White. The free-agent market for wide receivers isn't the deepest this year, and neither is the wide receiver draft class. For now, Jones is the only receiver in Atlanta worth starting, and he should be one of the first receivers selected in fantasy drafts.

Falcons | Atlanta should draft a receiver

Mon, 15 Feb 2016 12:54:28 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones should receive some help in the draft this offseason. The Falcons are expected to draft a No. 2 wide receiver in the higher rounds, according to ESPN.com's Vaughn McClure.

Fantasy Tip: Roddy White is well on his way over the hill, and the Falcons don't have another viable receiving option right now to take attention away from Jones. Whatever happens, Jones should still be one of the first three wide receivers taken in next season's fantasy drafts.

Bills | Sammy Watkins efficient in 2015

Wed, 20 Jan 2016 09:59:09 -0800

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins caught passes on 17.3% of the routes that he ran this season, which was the highest reception-to-routes-run rate for a Bills receiver since ESPN started tracking the statistic in 2007. Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (22.6%) led receivers this season in the category. Watkins ranked 13th among qualifying receivers.

Fantasy Tip: At one point in the season, Watkins had to complain in order to have more passes come his way. He finished the year with 60 catches (95 targets) for 1,047 yards and nine touchdowns. The emergence of Tyrod Taylor at quarterback helped Watkin's cause, and he should be a solid WR2 heading into next season.

Falcons | Julio Jones led league in targets

Tue, 05 Jan 2016 15:33:41 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones led the NFL with 203 targets this season. It was the most targets for a wide receiver in one season since Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson saw 204 targets in 2012.

Fantasy Tip: Jones was Matt Ryan's go-to guy all season long, and really the Falcons' only legitimate receiving threat. Jones stayed healthy throughout the year, resulting in the biggest season of his career so far. He's a top-five fantasy wide receiver for next season.

Falcons | Julio Jones caps outstanding year

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 15:37:27 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones caught nine passes for 149 yards Sunday, Jan. 3, in a 20-17 loss to the New Orleans Saints. Jones moved to second place in the NFL single-season records for receiving yards and catches with 136 for 1,871 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Jones eclipsed Jerry Rice, who had a 1,848-yard season in 1995, but couldn't catch Calvin Johnson's 1,964-yard mark in 2012. Whatever the case, Jones goes into 2016 as the top receiver on the Falcons and one of the top receivers in the NFL. He should be one of your top players on next year's draft list.

Falcons | Julio Jones injures ankle

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 11:45:01 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) suffered an ankle injury during the team's Week 17 game and is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Jones was one of the best wide receivers in fantasy this season and should be an early-round pick in 2016 as long as he does not have to deal with any injuries during the offseason.

Falcons | Julio Jones faces tremendous matchup

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 22:48:19 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones will meet the New Orleans Saints in Week 17, a team which has given up 281.1 yards per game through the air with 59 pass plays of 20 or more yards, and an NFL-high 16 pass plays of 40 or more yards.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($8,700, 17.4% of cap) posted six receptions for 93 yards on 10 targets in the first matchup with the Saints in Week 6, and he enters play with 18 grabs for 296 yards and two touchdowns over the past two games. Jones is finally healthy after a hamstring injury slowed him in the middle of the season and he will do big things in the season finale.

Falcons | Julio Jones close to history

Tue, 29 Dec 2015 11:12:58 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones has four games with at least 160 receiving yards this season. He needs one more such game to tie the record of five games with at least 160 yards held by Roy Green.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($8,700, 17.4% of cap) has arguably been the best fantasy wide receiver this year. The Falcons are eliminated from the playoffs, so Matt Ryan could be chucking balls all day to Jones since they have nothing to play for. Plus, the Falcons play one of the worst defenses in the NFL in the New Orleans Saints this week.

Falcons | Explosive totals for Julio Jones

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 15:53:38 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones caught nine passes for 178 yards, including a 70-yard touchdown bomb from QB Matt Ryan, in a 20-13 win over the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($8,200, 16.4% of cap) should be on your FantasyScore map for week 17. He has clearly taken the number one spot in the Falcons WR lineup.
