Falcons | Julio Jones not practicing

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. Check back as the week goes on to get a better idea of his status, but be prepared to look elsewhere for your lineup.

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 | Julio Jones expected to play

Mon, 15 Dec 2014 11:39:38 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) is expected to be ready to play in Week 16, according to head coach Mike Smith.

Fantasy Tip: Jones was not able to play in Week 15 because of his hip injury but looks to have a chance to play this upcoming week. Owners will need to monitor his practice participation during the week to see if he is ready to play. Jones has a favorable matchup against the New Orleans Saints and should be an attractive option on FantasyScore if active.

Falcons | Julio Jones inactive Sunday

Sun, 14 Dec 2014 08:46:31 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) is inactive Sunday, Dec. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Roddy White ($6,400; 12.8%) and Harry Douglas ($3,200; 6.4%) should see more action today. Douglas is a nice, cheap buy on FantasyScore.

Falcons | Julio Jones out for Week 15

Sun, 14 Dec 2014 07:23:55 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) is out Sunday, Dec. 14, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Roddy White ($6,400; 12.8%) and Harry Douglas ($3,200; 6.4%) are banged up but should play. Douglas is a sweet, low-end chip to help you allocate resources elsewhere.

Falcons | Julio Jones can barely run

Sat, 13 Dec 2014 13:11:22 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) can barely run and would be used as a decoy if plays Sunday, Dec. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($7,800; 15.6% of your cap) should be avoided on FantasyScore unless something changes. Roddy White ($6,400; 12.8%) and Harry Douglas ($3,200; 6.4%) are banged up but should play. Both would receive boosts if Jones is truly as limited as reported.

Falcons | Julio Jones being leaned on heavily

Fri, 12 Dec 2014 19:28:47 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) has averaged a league-high 13.3 times per game over the past four weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Jones is a risky play this weekend because of a hip injury, but if he does suit up, he should have another big game against a Pittsburgh defense ranked 23rd against the pass.

Falcons | Julio Jones questionable for Week 15

Fri, 12 Dec 2014 09:56:13 -0800

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) is questionable for the team's Week 15 game. Jones did not practice Friday, Dec. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Jones will cost $7,800 in FantasyScore this week, but he is a risky play at that high price considering he did not practice at all this week. Check back on his status on Sunday before you insert him into your lineup.

Falcons | Julio Jones does not practice

Fri, 12 Dec 2014 08:23:11 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) is not participating in practice Friday, Dec. 12.

Fantasy Tip: This is going to be something to watch closely leading up to kickoff on Sunday. With Jones not getting on the practice field at all this week, there appears to be a significant risk in paying the $7,800 he will cost in FantasyScore. Jones can be a difference maker for your roster, but he may not be close to full strength on game day.
