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.

Falcons | Surgery possible for Julio Jones

Mon, 06 Feb 2017 16:13:13 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) may undergo surgery this offseason to repair a toe injury.

Fantasy Tip: Jones dealt with the injury for most of the second half of the season but did not miss any of the playoff games. 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.

Falcons | Julio Jones officially limited

Thu, 02 Feb 2017 14:51:39 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe, foot) was officially listed as a limited participant in practice Thursday, Feb. 2. As previously reported, Jones had said that was full go at practice.

Fantasy Tip: The Falcons are understandably being cautious with their star receiver before the biggest game of his career. They want him in tip top shape in a tough matchup against Malcolm Butler and the Patriots. Regardless of the outcome, Jones will remain a top-tier WR1 in 2017.

Falcons | Julio Jones says he's not limited

Thu, 02 Feb 2017 06:46:24 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe, foot) said he's flying around and is a full go at practice Thursday, Feb. 2. Jones was listed as limited in practice Wednesday, Feb. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Jones is the best receiving option in fantasy Super Bowl pools by a long shot. However, the New England Patriots have a history of keying on other teams' best player and not allowing them to beat them.

Falcons | Julio Jones ready to go

Wed, 01 Feb 2017 06:43:55 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe, foot) said he's ready to go and doesn't expect his foot injuries to limit him in the Super Bowl.

Fantasy Tip: Jones is the top option by a large margin in Super Bowl pools. However, the New England Patriots have a history of keying on the opposition's best player and not allowing them to beat them. Jones is the best receiver to be featured in the big game in years, and he's an elite option in all formats.

Falcons | Julio Jones will be good to go

Tue, 31 Jan 2017 12:01:50 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) said he will be a full participant in practice this week and that his ailing toe won't be an issue for the Super Bowl.

Fantasy Tip: Jones will have his hands full with Malcolm Butler this weekend. Butler defended Antonio Brown and the Steelers well in the AFC Championship, but perhaps Jones' size will give him a needed advantage. As long as Jones stays healthy this offseason, he should be one of the first receivers taken in fantasy drafts, per usual.

Falcons | Julio Jones logs another limited practice

Tue, 31 Jan 2017 09:49:23 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) "looked great" during a limited practice Monday, Jan. 30, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

Fantasy Tip: It's an upgrade over Jones looking "good" in limited practice Friday. In all seriousness, Jones was not listed on the initial injury report for Super Bowl LI and should be expected to receive his full complement of snaps against the New England Patriots. The biggest concern for owners hoping for another big game from him this weekend will be to what degree the Patriots attempt to take Jones out of the game.
