Falcons | Julio Jones to sit out preseason opener

Tue, 08 Aug 2017 10:08:08 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones will not play in the preseason opener against the Miami Dolphins on Thursday, Aug. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Jones said a few days ago he was easing his way back into things after offseason foot surgery and there has been zero concern coming out of Atlanta regarding his status for Week 1. While he does have a history of foot problems, taking it slow is the prudent move for a 28-year-old who has nothing to prove during the preseason. Jones is a sound investment as a top-five receiver in the first round of all drafts.

Falcons | Julio Jones, Taylor Gabriel limited

Mon, 07 Aug 2017 15:45:13 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) and WR Taylor Gabriel (leg) were limited during practice Monday, Aug. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Both Jones and Gabriel are being eased back into practice but are in no danger of missing the start of the regular season. Jones is one of the most consistent receivers in the NFL and should be a No. 1 WR in all leagues. Gabriel was a factor in the Falcons passing game in 2016 and finished with 579 yards and six touchdowns. He can be seen as a No. 4 receiver in leagues with the chance to be a flex option against certain teams.

Falcons | Julio Jones easing back into practice

Sat, 05 Aug 2017 09:53:33 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones was on the sidelines for most of full-team practice Friday, Aug. 4, although he has been slowly getting more reps in practice after having offseason foot surgery. "I feel great about (taking it slow). We all know what I can do. … Whenever I'm ready, I'm ready. ... I can't really say when I'm going to go - like in the preseason - but whenever I'm ready, I'm going to go," Jones said.

Fantasy Tip: There has been zero concern about Jones' readiness for the season and no reason to push him given his history of foot injuries. Jones is a top-three fantasy receiver and has a great shot to finish at the top provided he can stay healthy; his schedule is among the easiest of any receiver in the NFL this season.

Falcons | Julio Jones back to individual drills

Thu, 03 Aug 2017 15:08:00 -0700

Falcons | Julio Jones takes part in team drills

Wed, 02 Aug 2017 20:09:58 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) received some snaps during team drills Wednesday, Aug. 2, for the first time since training camp started. He was limited during the first four days because he is coming back from a foot injury. Head coach Dan Quinn said the team has not decided how much playing time Jones will receive during the preseason.

Fantasy Tip: Jones appears to be on track for the start of the regular season and probably does not need many snaps in the preseason to be ready. Jones will be one of the top receivers in the NFL this season and should be a first-round pick in most fantasy leagues.

Falcons | Julio Jones will be limited

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 08:38:31 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) will be limited at the beginning of training camp, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

Fantasy Tip: That's not necessarily a bad thing. The 28-year-old struggled with a foot issue for much of the second half last season but still produced an 83-1,409-6 line. The only real knock on Jones is he has eclipsed 10 touchdowns once. He remains an elite WR1 in fantasy.

Falcons | Julio Jones not part of minicamp

Tue, 13 Jun 2017 13:56:30 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) is not participating in minicamp as he continues to recover from offseason foot surgery. Jones does expect to be ready for training camp in late July.

Fantasy Tip: The Falcons will take it easy with their star receiver this offseason after missing two games last year. He may not play much in the preseason, but he should still be one of the first wide receivers taken in fantasy drafts.

Falcons | Julio Jones may be used more in red zone

Thu, 08 Jun 2017 10:37:01 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones could be utilized more in the red zone this season with new offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian calling the shots. "When you have a playmaker like Julio, it's making sure we maximize his opportunities because there is so much double-coverage, there are so many unique coverages that roll his way that when we don't get that, let's make sure he's one of the primary receivers on that play because it is such a tough matchup for anybody one on one."

Fantasy Tip: Ideally, more red-zone opportunities equal more touchdowns. Jones' 20 touchdowns over the past three seasons are commendable, but he has been targeted 495 times in that span. Nonetheless, Jones is a top-three fantasy wideout and should be drafted as such.

Falcons | Julio Jones feels fine after jogging

Tue, 06 Jun 2017 12:33:28 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) said he felt fine after jogging Tuesday, June 6. Jones is recovering from offseason foot surgery but is expected to be ready for training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Jones isn't in serious jeopardy of missing significant time. As long as he doesn't have any setbacks this offseason he should be good to go as one of the first players drafted again this year after averaging 107.6 catches, 1,624.3 yards and 6.6 touchdowns the last three seasons.
