Falcons | Julio Jones better after injury?

Thu, 25 Sep 2014 18:46:37 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones said he focused on strengthening his quadriceps while rehabbing his broken foot and has noticed a difference on the field this year. "I can get in and out of my cuts easier because my quads are very strong now," Jones said. "Last year, I wasn't as strong. I was using more of my hamstrings. Now I'm able to explode out of cuts and therefore get separation from DBs."

Fantasy Tip: Jones currently leads the NFL with 365 receiving yards, and his nine catches of 20 or more yards are also tops in the league. With a salary of $8,800 (17.6% of cap), Jones won't come cheap at FantasyScore. However, he could be worth building a lineup around with a matchup against a struggling Minnesota team on tap in Week 4.

Falcons | Julio Jones stars in Week 3

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 23:49:58 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones, who was probable entering Week 3 of the NFL season, hauled in nine catches for 161 yards and scored twice in a 56-14 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday, Sept. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Jones (ankle) appears to be past his ankle issues and is a mid-to-low WR1 moving forward.

Falcons | Julio Jones probable for Week 3

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 11:06:59 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) practiced for the second straight day Wednesday, Sept. 17, and is probable for Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday, Sept. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Jones will play on Thursday night, and his $7,700 (15.4% of cap) FantasyScore salary becomes a bit more bearable now that Roddy White (hamstring) is questionable.

Falcons | Julio Jones limited in practice

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 19:26:20 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) was listed as a limited participant in practice Monday, Sept. 15, due to his ankle issue.

Fantasy Tip: The practice report for Monday is an estimation, as the league requires an injury report but there is no physical practice. Jones' status for the Week 3 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will have more clarity Tuesday and Wednesday. He fought through injury Sunday in Cincinnati, and should likely be ready to go.

Falcons | Julio Jones tops 100 yards

Mon, 08 Sep 2014 09:57:14 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones had seven catches for 116 yards in the team's season-opening win over the New Orleans Saints Sunday, Sept. 7. It was his first regular season game since having foot surgery last season.

Fantasy Tip: Jones looked completely healthy in this one, despite having a costly fumble inside the red zone. Matt Ryan was on point, and in this offense, Jones could have a big season if he can stay healthy. He should be a weekly consideration in FantasyScore.

Falcons | Julio Jones feels 100 percent

Sat, 06 Sep 2014 18:13:35 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) says he is 100 percent healthy heading into the team's season opener Sunday, Sept. 7, after missing most of last season with a broken foot.

Fantasy Tip: Jones will cost you 13.8% of your cap ($6,900) in FantasyScore, but he could be worth the price tag. Jones was leading the NFL in receptions and ranked second in receiving yards when he broke his foot last year, and he should immediately return to being Matt Ryan's main target in Atlanta's pass-friendly offense.

Falcons | Julio Jones feeling 100 percent

Fri, 15 Aug 2014 10:15:35 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot), who expects to play in the team's preseason game against the Houston Texans Saturday, Aug. 16, said he is feeling 100 percent healthy. Jones fractured his right foot Oct. 7 of last season. The Falcons plan to be cautious with him in the preseason, and he's likely to play just one series Saturday. Jones didn't play in last week's game and has been on a practice schedule of one day on and one day off.

Fantasy Tip: If Jones is completely healthy entering Week 1, he should have no problem reclaiming his role as the team's No. 1 receiver. You should be glad to have him as a WR1 if others in your league let him slip because of his injury last year.
