NFL | Potential 2016 free-agent WR class stout

Wed, 20 May 2015 09:28:45 -0700

The upcoming group of potential free-agent wide receivers includes four of the positions most dominant players, including Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant, Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green and Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones, according to Spotrac.com. All four players are engaging in contract discussions on some level with their current teams.

Fantasy Tip: While it looks impressive on paper, the reality of any of these guys hitting the open market seems extremely low, let alone the idea of all four of them at the same time. Nevertheless, each one has something extra to play for in 2015, which only helps their fantasy value, all things being equal. Each player makes for a fine WR1 to build a fantasy team around.

Falcons | No talks between Julio Jones, ATL

Mon, 04 May 2015 10:22:29 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones has not had any contract extension talks with the team at this time, but general manager Thomas Dimitroff said extending Jones is one of the team's priorities.

Fantasy Tip: The team has plenty of time to work on an extension with Jones. Jones finished in the top five in receptions (104) and receiving yards (1,593) this past season and should be one of the first receivers drafted in fantasy leagues next season.

Falcons | Julio Jones in it for the long haul?

Wed, 04 Feb 2015 09:41:21 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones is likely to stick around with the team long term, as new head coach Dan Quinn indicated in his introductory press conference that Jones is an asset he'd like to keep around. Jones is entering the last year of his contract in which he'll make $10.176 million. It will be Quinn's decision as to whether to extend Jones' contract. "For me, just to have the chance to start the process with him, I can't wait. … We love great players, and we want to celebrate all the good guys that we have. We're trying to collect more great players, not the other way around," Quinn said.

Fantasy Tip: Jones has a lot to look forward in this offense under Quinn and new offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. On paper, they should be quite an explosive unit, and Jones should be considered a WR1 on draft day.
