Falcons | Julio Jones should be fine for camp

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 11:27:40 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) is expected to be at full health in time for the start of training camp in late July. Jones was wearing a boot, but he appeared to be moving around well and was not using crutches. A minor procedure was performed on Jones' foot March 6 after he played with the injury for most of the second half of last season.

Fantasy Tip: Jones will be primed for another top WR1 season once he's recovered. He finished as the WR6 last season despite missing two games. Jones is a consensus first-round pick and should be one of the first three wide receivers taken in fantasy drafts.

Falcons | Julio Jones had minor surgery

Tue, 07 Mar 2017 06:00:36 -0800

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) had surgery to remove a bunion from his foot. He'll require four to five months to fully heal, but he's expected to be ready for training camp in July.

Fantasy Tip: The issue plagued Jones for the entire season, and he still managed to post an 83-1,406-6 line in 14 games. He is one of the best players at his position and a consideration early in fantasy drafts next season.

Falcons | Julio Jones surgery update

Fri, 03 Mar 2017 12:07:37 -0800

Updating a previous story, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) is not scheduled to undergo foot surgery Monday, March 6, but rather an appointment with noted foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson to determine if he needs to remove a bunion on his foot. The Falcons have yet to make a decision on whether or not Jones will have surgery.

Fantasy Tip: NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported earlier Jones was set to have minor foot surgery. Nearly a month removed from the Super Bowl, the clock is ticking for a decision to be made on Jones' sprained toe if the Falcons want him ready for offseason workouts. Atlanta is going to do whatever it can to help Jones enter 2017 healthy, so owners can still view him as a surefire first-round pick in fantasy.

Falcons | Julio Jones to have surgery Monday

Fri, 03 Mar 2017 11:30:48 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) is set to undergo foot surgery Monday, March 6, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Tip: Rapoport reports the surgery is minor and won't affect his training camp availability. Jones was a dominant force in the Falcons' run to the Super Bowl despite playing through a painful toe sprain. While Jones has multiple surgeries on his feet over the years, this injury doesn't appear to be related to his previous injuries. Assuming the surgery is in fact minor, Jones should be a no-brainer first-round pick in fantasy yet again this summer.

Falcons | Julio Jones still unsure about surgery

Wed, 01 Mar 2017 16:06:15 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot, toe) still has not decided if he will undergo surgery on his injured foot. Head coach Dan Quinn said Jones is scheduled to meet with doctors next week about the foot.

Fantasy Tip: Jones probably will decide on his foot in the near future and could miss some offseason workouts if he has the surgery. He should be fine for training camp and will continue to be one of the best receivers in the NFL. He will be a first-round pick in fantasy leagues and will be a weekly starting option.

Falcons | Julio Jones to be evaluated in March

Tue, 07 Feb 2017 09:21:33 -0800

Updating a previous story, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) told ESPN.com's Vaughn McClure on Tuesday, Feb. 7, he will have his troublesome toe evaluated next month to decide if surgery is needed or not.

Fantasy Tip: It would not be surprising if Jones undergoes surgery considering the fact he dealt with the injury for most of the season. The ailment obviously did not hinder him all that much, however, as he amassed 19 catches for 334 yards and three touchdowns during the Falcons' playoff run. Jones' ongoing foot issues are something fantasy owners need to keep in mind going forward, but he's arguably the most dominant receiver in the game when healthy.

He may be limited during workouts this offseason but should be fine for training camp. Jones is one of the best receivers in the NFL and should be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

Falcons | Julio Jones may need offseason surgery

Sun, 05 Feb 2017 07:33:46 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe, ankle) may need to undergo offseason surgery for a sprained toe which has bothered him for most of the year, according to multiple sources. He will receive a full evaluation on his foot following Super Bowl LI. Jones has also been hampered by a sprained ankle but will not need to go under the knife for that injury.

Fantasy Tip: Jones was a limited participant in practice throughout the week but did not seem concerned about how the toe injury would affect his performance in the Super Bowl. He had nine catches for 180 receiving yards and two touchdowns versus the Packers in the NFC Championship Game, so owners should have no reservations about using him in any postseason fantasy contests. Jones should also be viewed as an elite WR1 option in all formats entering next year's drafts.

Falcons | Julio Jones limited again but will play

Fri, 03 Feb 2017 12:20:16 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) was limited in practice for the third consecutive day Friday, Feb. 3, but is not listed on the injury report and "ready to go" for Super Bowl 51 on Sunday, Feb. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Jones has been maintaining all week that he's fine, so the trio of limited practices shouldn't really cause any concern. And who can doubt him? While playing through injury in the NFC Championship Game, he burned the Packers for nine catches, 180 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He's more likely than not to post another big stat line in Houston.
