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.

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.

Falcons | Julio Jones recovering well

Wed, 12 Apr 2017 18:02:49 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) watched from the sidelines Wednesday, April 12, as a number of teammates took part in a players-only workout led by QB Matt Ryan. However, Jones showed no signs of a limp and didn't need crutches or a protective walking boot after undergoing surgery in early March. He is not expected to participate in Atlanta's offseason workout program, which begins April 17, but he should be ready for the team's regular-season opener in September.

Fantasy Tip: Unless he has a setback this spring or summer, owners can still treat Jones as an elite WR1 in fantasy. At only 28 years of age and freakishly talented, he should remain one of the top five receivers in the league for at least the next two to three years.

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 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.
