Falcons | Modest Monday evening for Julio Jones

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 21:01:10 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones recorded five catches on 10 targets for 71 yards in the team's Week 11 victory Monday, Nov. 20, against the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Tip: Once again, Jones was held without a touchdown, and as a result, he shockingly remains stuck on one for the season. At the same time, he continues to get his usual massive number of looks, especially when compared to the rest of the offense, as no one else drew more than four targets for the game. It's been a frustrating time owning Jones but owners just need to show patience and keep trotting him out there. The touchdowns will come.

Falcons | Julio Jones limited again

Sat, 18 Nov 2017 17:24:35 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) had limited participation in practice Saturday, Nov. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Jones is one of those players that you must start unless the injury report reads "out" next to his name. He may not get all the reps in, but come game time Jones will get the job done.

Falcons | Julio Jones works on limited basis

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 14:14:02 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) practiced on a limited basis Friday, Nov. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Jones has been taking it easy in recent weeks during practice, but he hasn't missed any game time as a result of his nagging ankle injury. When active he is an obvious must-start fantasy option regardless of matchup.

Falcons | Julio Jones doesn't practice Thursday

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 16:04:35 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Despite having just one touchdown on the year, Jones can still be a strong WR1 option on any given week, especially this one as he'll be facing a Seahawks defense that will be missing a couple of key players. Jones is overdue for some scores, so hopefully that number begins to ascend towards its norm on Monday.

Falcons | Julio Jones limited

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 09:51:49 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) will be limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Jones is still productive, but his one touchdown has limited his appeal after being taken as a stud WR1. He remains a low-end WR1 against the Seattle Seahawks this week.

Falcons | Julio Jones disappoints yet again

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 20:51:32 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones posted six receptions for 57 yards on eight targets in Week 10 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: Jones has scored just one touchdown this season, and he has just two 100-yard games. Overall, his numbers aren't bad for a regular wide receiver, but not a consensus first-round fantasy pick. He is averaging 6.0 receptions per game over the past five outings to give PPR owners a boost lately, but he is not helping standard owners as much. He faces a dinged up Legion of Boom in Week 11 on Monday night.

Falcons | Julio Jones impresses in practice

Fri, 10 Nov 2017 19:26:29 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) looked "explosive" in his return to practice Friday, Nov. 10, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

Fantasy Tip: Not that you need to be talked into starting Jones, but it's still nice to hear that he performed well in practice. It's also nice that Atlanta faces the Dallas Cowboys in what is projected to be one of the highest-scoring games of Week 10.

Falcons | Julio Jones off the injury report

Fri, 10 Nov 2017 14:31:22 -0800

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) was a limited participant in practice Friday, Nov. 10, but he has been removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 10 game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: Jones did enough to satisfy the coaching staff and he'll be on the field for Sunday's showdown against the Cowboys. Dallas ranks 18th in the NFL in pass defense, yielding 223.4 yards per game with 14 touchdowns, while also giving up 24 pass plays of 20 or more yards.

Falcons | Julio Jones at practice

Fri, 10 Nov 2017 08:19:39 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) is on the practice field Friday, Nov. 10.

Fantasy Tip: It's unknown whether he'll be limited or not, but it's a good sign for him to suit up in Week 10. The Dallas Cowboys have been a little susceptible to WRs the last five weeks, but they're still a midrange matchup. Jones has one touchdown on the year and has more value in PPR as a WR1 than in other formats.

Falcons | No practice for Julio Jones

Thu, 09 Nov 2017 14:19:59 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Jones probably is receiving some time off and should be ready to play in Week 10. He continues to be one of the best receivers in the NFL and should be a No. 1 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Falcons | Julio Jones does not practice Wednesday

Wed, 08 Nov 2017 10:18:50 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (leg) did not practice with the team Wednesday, Nov. 8, but he did participate in the walk-through portion.

Fantasy Tip: Given that he played through the injury in Week 9, it's reasonable to assume he'll find a way to go in Week 10 versus the Dallas Cowboys. However, it is entirely possible the team doesn't turn him loose until Friday, so owners may have to wait until then to find out his fate for the weekend. If he doesn't play, Mohamed Sanu and Taylor Gabriel would stand to benefit for fantasy purposes, while the Falcons could choose to lean a bit more on their running game.

Falcons | Julio Jones has leg injury

Mon, 06 Nov 2017 11:46:41 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (leg) played through a lower leg injury in the Falcons' Week 9 win, according to head coach Dan Quinn. He will be limited in practice this week.

Fantasy Tip: Even with the injury Jones had one of the best games of his season, tallying 118 yards on six catches. If he can do that when he's not fully healthy then fantasy owners shouldn't be concerned as long as Jones is active for games.

Falcons | Julio Jones hits century mark

Sun, 05 Nov 2017 14:15:00 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones hauled in six receptions for 118 yards on a game-high 12 targets in Week 9 against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: The 100-yard game was nice, but Jones dropped a touchdown in the back of the end zone in the fourth quarter when he was wide open. It could have been a much, much bigger day for No. 11. Still, it's just his second 100-yard game of the season, so fantasy owners can be pleased with that. The Falcons host the Cowboys in Week 10.

Falcons | Julio Jones finishes with 74 yards

Sun, 29 Oct 2017 13:29:31 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones caught three passes for 74 yards against the New York Jets in Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Jones has gone five games without a 100-yard performance, but he has still been a solid contributor for fantasy owners. He should be considered a No. 1 fantasy receiver next week against the Carolina Panthers.

Falcons | Julio Jones breaks through for TD

Mon, 23 Oct 2017 04:50:28 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones had a breakthrough game in Week 7 against the New England Patriots, as he caught nine passes for 99 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners rejoiced at seeing Jones get into the end zone. Falcons coach Dan Quinn wanted Jones more involved in the offense and he got his wish on Sunday. Jones missed only four passes and looked like the Jones of old. He remains a strong WR1 despite early struggles.

Falcons | Atlanta not content with Julio Jones' touches

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 13:36:35 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones will be more involved in the offense if head coach Dan Quinn has his way. Quinn said he was not satisfied with how often Jones was seeing the ball, adding that more offensive plays in general will help that cause.

Fantasy Tip: There has been a plethora of fantasy disappointments in 2017, one of them being Jones. The star receiver has amassed just 25 catches for 367 yards and -- worst of all -- no touchdowns. Needless to say, though, he needs to remain a fixture in fantasy lineups.

Falcons | Julio Jones off injury report

Fri, 13 Oct 2017 15:41:46 -0700

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) was listed as a limited participant for practice Friday, Oct. 13, and he has been removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 6 game with the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: It could be a very fruitful week for Jones and the Falcons pass offense, as the Dolphins rank 22nd in the NFL allowing 234.0 yards per game through five outings while yielding nine pass plays of 20 or more yards. After a bye, it's good to have Jones back, although he is still looking for his first TD of 2017.

Falcons | Julio Jones cleared to play

Fri, 13 Oct 2017 11:47:59 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) has been cleared to play Week 6 versus the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: Jones told reporters the team "had a plan" for him earlier this week when he was limited, and this confirms that. With Mohamed Sanu out, Jones could be primed for his first big game of the year. While the Dolphins have only surrendered two receiving touchdowns to wideouts and been fairly stingy thus far, Keenan Allen (nine catches, 100 yards) and Michael Thomas (eight catches, 89 yards) were both able to have their way against them.

Falcons | Julio Jones limited again

Thu, 12 Oct 2017 10:14:31 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) put in a limited practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Jones has basically been limited his whole career. By no means should Jones' owners consider benching Jones this week. He is a WR1 play as long as he is playing, no matter who the opponent is.

Falcons | Julio Jones limited

Wed, 11 Oct 2017 14:10:24 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Jones has had plenty of time to rest and recover following the Falcons' Week 5 bye. The Miami Dolphins have been tough against the pass so far this year, but Jones is essentially matchup proof and a must start as long as he is active.

Falcons | Julio Jones takes part in practice

Mon, 09 Oct 2017 13:09:35 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) participated in at least a portion of practice Monday, Oct. 9.

Fantasy Tip: It appears like Jones has a good chance to play this week, but owners will need to monitor his practice participation during the week. He will be a No. 1 receiver whenever he is able to return to the field.

Falcons | Julio Jones likely fine

Mon, 02 Oct 2017 05:49:03 -0700

Updating previous reports, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) isn't expected to miss playing time with the Week 5 bye, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Jones has disappointed with 19 grabs for 295 yards and no touchdowns through the first quarter of the season. However, he's a stud receiver, and it may be an opportunity to buy low on him.

Falcons | Julio Jones ruled out

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 11:59:03 -0700

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) will not be returning to the team's Week 4 game because of his hip injury.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should know more about Jones' status after the game or in the next few days. It is not a good sign that he was not able to return to the game and may indicate he could miss more time. It would be hard for owners to replace Jones in their lineups but may have to look for other receiver options.

Falcons | Julio Jones injures hip

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 10:45:33 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) suffered a hip injury in Week 4 and is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to find out the severity of Jones' injury. He is one of the top receivers in fantasy and would be difficult to replace if it is a long-term injury.

Fri, 29 Sep 2017 14:37:25 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (back) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 29, but is not on the injury report for Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: Jones should see his normal workload this week even though he was limited during practice. He is one of the best receivers in the NFL and is a must-start player in all leagues.

Falcons | Julio Jones still limited

Thu, 28 Sep 2017 10:07:08 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (back) will be limited in practice for a second straight day Thursday, Sept. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Jones has endured plenty of nicks and knacks over his career. As long as he avoids any setbacks over the next couple days he'll remain a high-end WR1.

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (back) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 27.

Falcons | Julio Jones should be fine

Mon, 25 Sep 2017 11:37:17 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (back) should be good to go in Week 4 despite suffering a back injury in Week 3, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

Fantasy Tip: Jones was relatively disappointing last week but managed to eclipse the 100-yard mark. He's an automatic start as long as he is active. Don't be scared by the ailment even if he is limited in practice.

Falcons | Julio Jones posts 108 yards in win

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 21:54:19 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones posted five receptions for 108 yards on nine targets in Week 2 against Green Bay.

Fantasy Tip: It was a little disappointing for fantasy owners, as Jones had 93 yards at halftime. However, the team built a giant lead early in the third quarter and shifted to a run-heavy offense with very limited pass attempts to keep his second-half numbers down. He'll look to keep up the solid production in Week 3 at Detroit.

Falcons | Mediocre stat line for Julio Jones

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 15:37:01 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones hauled in four receptions for 66 yards on five targets in Week 1 against the Bears.

Fantasy Tip: The Chicago secondary did a good job of taking Jones out of the game and forcing Matt Ryan to look more to Mohamed Sanu, Tevin Coleman and Taylor Gabriel. Jones will look for better results in Week 2 on Sunday Night Football against the visiting Packers.

Falcons | Julio Jones eyeing 2,000 yards?

Fri, 08 Sep 2017 18:59:55 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones said a 2,000-yard season "definitely can be done," but he is going to take whatever the defense gives him.

Fantasy Tip: Jones was within striking distance of 2,000 yards in 2015, and he has topped 1,400 yards in each of the last three years. He is a plug-and-play WR1 against any opponent and a top-three fantasy option at his position against the Bears in Week 1.

Falcons | Julio Jones to see limited time Saturday

Fri, 25 Aug 2017 15:31:26 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) will receive a few snaps in the preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals Saturday, Aug. 26. Jones missed the first two preseason games because he is coming off offseason foot surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Jones does not need many reps to get ready for the start of the season, so the team will take things easy with him. Jones should be one of the leading receivers in the NFL this season and will be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

Falcons | Julio Jones might play Saturday

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 11:48:47 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) could see the field against the Arizona Cardinals Saturday, Aug. 26, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

Fantasy Tip: If Jones does play, it probably won't be for long. The Falcons don't want to risk aggravating their star wide receiver's foot ailment right before the season starts. As it stands, Jones should be one of the first few receivers selected in fantasy drafts.

Falcons | Julio Jones to sit Saturday

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 12:00:32 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) will not play against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, Aug. 20.

Fantasy Tip: It appears Jones is being put in bubble wrap in August for all intents and purposes, but he has been participating in practice on a regular basis and the Falcons have been clear they expect to use him more often in the red zone this season. Jones also has nothing left to prove to the Falcons either, so making sure he is 100 percent for Week 1 is a prudent move. He is well worth a top-five overall pick in fantasy drafts.

Falcons | Julio Jones to sit out preseason opener

Tue, 08 Aug 2017 10:08:08 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones will not play in the preseason opener against the Miami Dolphins on Thursday, Aug. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Jones said a few days ago he was easing his way back into things after offseason foot surgery and there has been zero concern coming out of Atlanta regarding his status for Week 1. While he does have a history of foot problems, taking it slow is the prudent move for a 28-year-old who has nothing to prove during the preseason. Jones is a sound investment as a top-five receiver in the first round of all drafts.

Falcons | Julio Jones, Taylor Gabriel limited

Mon, 07 Aug 2017 15:45:13 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) and WR Taylor Gabriel (leg) were limited during practice Monday, Aug. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Both Jones and Gabriel are being eased back into practice but are in no danger of missing the start of the regular season. Jones is one of the most consistent receivers in the NFL and should be a No. 1 WR in all leagues. Gabriel was a factor in the Falcons passing game in 2016 and finished with 579 yards and six touchdowns. He can be seen as a No. 4 receiver in leagues with the chance to be a flex option against certain teams.

Falcons | Julio Jones easing back into practice

Sat, 05 Aug 2017 09:53:33 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones was on the sidelines for most of full-team practice Friday, Aug. 4, although he has been slowly getting more reps in practice after having offseason foot surgery. "I feel great about (taking it slow). We all know what I can do. … Whenever I'm ready, I'm ready. ... I can't really say when I'm going to go - like in the preseason - but whenever I'm ready, I'm going to go," Jones said.

Fantasy Tip: There has been zero concern about Jones' readiness for the season and no reason to push him given his history of foot injuries. Jones is a top-three fantasy receiver and has a great shot to finish at the top provided he can stay healthy; his schedule is among the easiest of any receiver in the NFL this season.

Falcons | Julio Jones back to individual drills

Thu, 03 Aug 2017 15:08:00 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) was limited to individual drills during practice Thursday, Aug. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Jones took part in team drills Wednesday, Aug. 2, but was back to limited participation. Jones probably will be limited during most of camp so he can rest his surgically repaired foot. He should be one of the top receivers in the NFL this season and can be a first-round selection in all fantasy leagues.

Falcons | Julio Jones takes part in team drills

Wed, 02 Aug 2017 20:09:58 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) received some snaps during team drills Wednesday, Aug. 2, for the first time since training camp started. He was limited during the first four days because he is coming back from a foot injury. Head coach Dan Quinn said the team has not decided how much playing time Jones will receive during the preseason.

Fantasy Tip: Jones appears to be on track for the start of the regular season and probably does not need many snaps in the preseason to be ready. Jones will be one of the top receivers in the NFL this season and should be a first-round pick in most fantasy leagues.

Falcons | Julio Jones will be limited

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 08:38:31 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) will be limited at the beginning of training camp, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

Fantasy Tip: That's not necessarily a bad thing. The 28-year-old struggled with a foot issue for much of the second half last season but still produced an 83-1,409-6 line. The only real knock on Jones is he has eclipsed 10 touchdowns once. He remains an elite WR1 in fantasy.

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.

Falcons | Julio Jones feels fine after jogging

Tue, 06 Jun 2017 12:33:28 -0700

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.
