Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) fully participated in practice Tuesday, Sept. 16.

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.

Falcons | Julio Jones expects to play Saturday

Thu, 14 Aug 2014 19:53:45 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) expects to play in the team's preseason game Saturday, Aug. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Jones was developing into a top-tier wide receiver prior to suffering a broken foot last year, and while he continues to progress, it remains to be seen if he will still have the same big-play ability. While there are risks involved with picking Jones, there is also a chance you could end up with a WR1 for a WR2 price.

Falcons | Julio Jones sidelined

Fri, 08 Aug 2014 18:04:22 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) was held out of the preseason opener Friday, Aug. 8, against the Miami Dolphins, as he continues to come back from a foot procedure which sidelined him for most of the 2013 season."I've still got to be smart about it because it is preseason. You don't want to rush anything and go out there and play a preseason game when it really doesn't matter, if something happens," Jones said. "We've just got to be cautious right now."

Falcons | Julio Jones ready for camp

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 15:11:40 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) will be ready for the start of training camp, as expected, but will be limited.

Fantasy Tip: This is definitely good news for a top-tier fantasy wide receiver. Jones will likely take it easy throughout training camp and the preseason as he continues to heal. When healthy, Jones has top-five WR potential in standard leagues.

Falcons | Julio Jones feeling great

Tue, 17 Jun 2014 18:47:43 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) was able to run routes during OTAs and has been walking normally as he continues his recovery from a broken right foot. Jones also said that the rehab process has made him stronger overall. "I feel great," Jones said. "I'm back doing the little things that I used to do. I'm back to the old Julio. I feel like I'm actually stronger now because I've been doing back squats; getting my quads stronger. Muscles in my hamstrings."

Fantasy Tip: While there is always a little added risk when drafting a player coming off of a serious injury, Jones' recovery appears to be on track. When healthy, he is a big-play weapon in Atlanta's pass-heavy offense, and he should still be considered a strong No. 2 fantasy WR at this point.

Mon, 09 Jun 2014 16:35:02 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones said he isn't concerned about inking a long-term deal before his rookie year expires, but he'd like to stay with the Falcons. "If they are willing to have me, I'm all for it. I love Atlanta and I want to be here," Jones said. "All I can is work and get back in shape, fix this foot and get back out there so my teammates can depend on me, and also have my bosses depend on me."

Falcons | Julio Jones being cautious

Mon, 09 Jun 2014 16:34:37 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) is being extremely cautious not to return too soon from his foot injury. He was recently cleared to resume running routes during organized team activities, but Jones said he won't take part in team drills during a mandatory minicamp next week. "It is a serious injury, and knowing that I broke the same bone in a different spot over the course of two years. So it's a very serious matter, and we're not trying to play with it," Jones said. "We're taking all the precautions before throwing me back out there and just saying, 'He's ready to go.' I feel great, I feel good, but at the same time, we have to take it slow because the season is still far away." Jones hasn't taken any passes from QB Matt Ryan this offseason.

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.

Atlanta Falcons head coach Mike Smith said WR Julio Jones (foot) is ahead of schedule in his recovery after having surgery on his foot last season. Smith said Jones has resumed running, and the team expects him to be 100 percent healthy soon.

Fantasy Tip: Jones should be a sure-fire No. 1 fantasy wideout again this year, and he'll have a chance to prove he's completely healthy during offseason workouts and in training camp.

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.

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.

Falcons | Fear Julio Jones is out for the year

Tue, 08 Oct 2013 10:16:35 -0700

The Atlanta Falcons fear WR Julio Jones (foot) will miss the rest of the year with a foot issue. Jones will have more tests Wednesday, Oct. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Obviously this is a huge blow for fantasy owners if Jones is out for the year. This should mean an increased workload for Harry Douglas and Roddy White moving forward. This is also bad news for Matt Ryan as he may see his production dip moving forward. Tony Gonzalez could see even more double coverages than he is currently getting as a result of this news.

Falcons | Julio Jones limited

Thu, 03 Oct 2013 14:27:37 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 3. Jones said the training staff tried to keep him from returning in the team's Week 4 game after he suffered a stinger to his leg. "It was just the initial hit, I was like, 'Wow.' But it was just like a little stinger," Jones said. "It was nothing drastic. It was nothing serious. I went back out there and I finished the game." His knee injury is unrelated to the injury he suffered Sunday night.

Fantasy Tip: Jones returned in the game last Sunday to make some big catches in the team's loss, so his injury isn't serious at all. He should be fully expected to play again in Week 5. Keep him in your starting lineups.

Falcons | Tony Gonzalez excited for Week 3 matchup

Fri, 20 Sep 2013 18:53:36 -0700

Atlanta Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez is looking forward to facing the Miami Dolphins in Week 3. The Dolphins have shown a penchant for double teaming the opposition's top wide receiver, which could create more chances for Gonzalez. "They doubled up (Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald) a lot, and you would probably think they'd do the same thing against (Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones), which is going to create one-on-one matchups with other guys," Gonzalez said.

Fantasy Tip: The Dolphins have had difficulty containing the opposition's tight end, and Gonzalez might be a Top 5 option at his position given the struggles in coverage and potential double teams to give Gonzalez a chance to work one-on-one.
