Falcons | Julio Jones to be limited

Tue, 22 Apr 2014 10:02:47 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) will be limited during the team's offseason workouts while he recovers from offseason foot surgery. "Julio is participating with our athletic performance department," head coach Mike Smith said. "He will be able to get out on the field and do some walk-through stuff with us when we start going. Our focus on Julio is one thing, and that's having him prepared for our opener. ... He's progressing well. We're not going to do anything to hinder his timeframe in terms of getting back to work with us."

Fantasy Tip: The team previously said Jones was ahead of schedule in his rehab. This is probably just a case of the Falcons being ultra-cautious with their top offensive weapon. Assming Jones is fully healthy this year and his foot doesn't slow him down, he should return to being a WR1 for fantasy players.

Falcons | Julio Jones to have surgery

Wed, 09 Oct 2013 14:22:57 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) will undergo surgery on his foot next week after Dr. Robert Anderson diagnosed him with a fractured foot. Jones will miss the rest of the season.

Fantasy Tip: You can now safely drop Jones everywhere. The fractured foot that involved a broken screw from a previous injury could be an issue for him for the rest of his career. For now, Harry Douglas will move to a prominent role in the passing game alongside Tony Gonzalez with Roddy White (hamstring, ankle) hobbled.

Falcons | Julio Jones has broken screw in foot

Tue, 08 Oct 2013 16:47:45 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) reportedly broke a screw that was surgically implanted in his foot during his foot surgery before his rookie season in 2011.

Fantasy Tip: This is an aggravation that could easily require surgery, and everything is pointing to Jones missing the remainder of the season. He'll have a second opinion on the foot tomorrow, but you should already be making plans to add another WR and drop Jones from your roster.
