Sun, 13 Nov 2016 18:31:02 -0800

Tue, 01 Nov 2016 10:59:57 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (knee) suffered a knee bruise in a Week 8 win over the Green Bay Packers, but he is expected to be fine for Week 9 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Sun, 30 Oct 2016 21:50:28 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (undisclosed) suffered an undisclosed injury in the Week 8 game against the Green Bay Packers, and head coach Dan Quinn said Sunday, Oct. 30, that Jones has been dealing with numerous injuries. The head coach said Jones will be "ready to rock" in Week 9 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday, Nov. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Jones was clearly limited in the second half, and Mohamed Sanu and Taylor Gabriel stepped up to fill the void. Jones has an ultra-favorable matchup in Week 9 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers but he doesn't have a lot of time between now and Thursday to rest his bumps and bruises.

Thu, 13 Oct 2016 06:28:29 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones is likely to be shadowed by Seattle Seahawks CB Richard Sherman in Week 6.

Falcons | Julio Jones crashes back to Earth

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 20:27:02 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones managed two catches for 29 yards in the Week 5 game against the Denver Broncos on six targets.

Fantasy Tip: Jones exploded for 300 yards last week, but he had a very uneven performance in this one and crippled fantasy owners hoping for at least a decent performance against a strong Denver defense. He faces another tough matchup in Seattle in Week 6, but he remains an obvious must-start fantasy option.

Falcons | Julio Jones nearly gets blanked

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 21:19:08 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) was targeted six times in the Week 3 game against the New Orleans Saints Monday, Sept. 26, but he managed just one catch for 16 yards. That first reception did not come until the second half.

Fantasy Tip: Jones has been dealing with a sore calf, and he had an ankle issue earlier in the season, too. Whenever he is active you have to have him in there, as this was an anomaly.

Falcons | Julio Jones blanked in first half

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 19:12:12 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) is active in Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints Monday, Sept. 26, but while the Falcons have seven different receivers with a catch, Jones has zero grabs.

Fantasy Tip: Jones is killing his fantasy owners Monday, but there is still 30 minutes to go against a poor defense. If he is just being used as a decoy, and that certainly looks to be the case, not good.

Falcons | Julio Jones active Monday

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 16:16:26 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) is active against the New Orleans Saints Monday, Sept. 26.

Fantasy Tip: It's not a big surprise as Jones had already said he'd play tonight. He has one of the best matchups of the week, at least on paper, against a depleted Saints secondary. What's also in his favor is that this matchup has shootout potential, featuring two of the best quarterbacks in the NFL so far this season. Another game with big numbers could be on the horizon if Jones can avoid aggravating the calf injury.

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) was limited during practice Saturday, Sept. 24, and is listed as questionable for Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Jones has said he will play against the New Orleans Saints this week, but owners will need to continue to monitor the situation. Jones will come with some risk but should be a starting candidate in all leagues if he is active.

Falcons | Atlanta won't force the ball to Julio Jones

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 10:04:13 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones only has 13 targets through two games this season after recording 204 last year, and offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan doesn't appear interested in changing that approach anytime soon. Six Falcons have four or more receptions through the first two games, while TE Jacob Tamme has two more catches and three more targets than Jones. "You really hope (Jones) is one-on-one, but it's nice when he's not and he's got some bad looks, there's a lot of other opportunities out there (for the other players). … You don't have to force it into tough looks. You can go where the coverage tells you. … You might not have the same numbers for (Jones) and stuff, but I think the result ends up improving the offense," Shanahan said.

Fantasy Tip: Shanahan has a long history of feeding his top receiver, so this is quite the departure from the norm for him. As nice as he makes it sound, however, defenses are going to be content with the Falcons trying to beat them with Mohamed Sanu and Tamme as opposed to Jones, Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman. Even with a slightly reduced target share this season, Jones is still a weekly WR1.

Falcons | Julio Jones expected to play

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 07:22:26 -0700

Atlanta Falcons head coach Dan Quinn said WR Julio Jones (calf) is expected to be available for Week 3's game against the New Orleans Saints, even though he missed practice Friday, Sept. 23.

Fantasy Tip: The Falcons have a Monday night game versus New Orleans and owners should check to see if Jones practices Saturday, Sept. 24, to have a better idea of his status. DFS players should look for safer options this week due to the uncertainty surrounding the number of snaps he will see.

Falcons | Julio Jones sits again

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 17:50:52 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to see if Jones will be able to practice Saturday, Sept. 24, to have a better idea on his status for Week 3. He should be a starter in all leagues if he is active, but owners should have another option ready in case he is ruled out.

Falcons | Julio Jones dealing with calf strain

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 11:05:04 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) has been diagnosed a calf strain, although it is not believed to be serious, according to ESPN's Vaughn McClure.

Fantasy Tip: If there is any good news to come out of this, it may be that Jones didn't aggravate the ankle injury that has dogged him since late in the preseason. Jones is seemingly always battling through one lower-body injury or another, but he keeps showing up on game day. Anytime Jones is on the field, he is a WR1 in fantasy.

Falcons | Julio Jones expected to be fine

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 05:24:49 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (leg, ankle) missed the final drive of the Week 2 game with a leg injury that wasn't related to his previous left ankle injury, but the team expects him to be fine.

Fantasy Tip: Jones has reached the end zone each week, but he has just nine catches for 172 yards, which is a little lackluster for him. He could unleash it in Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints, though, and he'll remain an elite WR1.

Falcons | Julio Jones like the no-huddle

Fri, 16 Sep 2016 20:37:16 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones scored a 25-yard touchdown in Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers out of the no-huddle offense, and he said he likes the way offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan uses the no-huddle.

Fantasy Tip: Jones is a must-start player in standard formats, but with Atlanta set to face an Oakland defense that was gashed through the air in Week 1, he could also make a strong building block in DFS games.

Falcons | Julio Jones ready for Week 2

Fri, 16 Sep 2016 09:41:12 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) was a full participant in practice Friday, Sept. 16, and will play Week 2 against the Oakland Raiders Sunday, Sept. 18, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

Fantasy Tip: Expect Jones to be nursed through practices most weeks, but all that matters is his production on game day. Lock Jones in as an elite wide receiver in all fantasy settings and start him confidently. Oakland surrendered 419 passing yards in Week 1, after all.

Wed, 14 Sep 2016 09:51:34 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 14, according to head coach Dan Quinn. Quinn noted Jones should be a larger participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 15, though.

Fantasy Tip: Jones seems to always be nursing minor ailments, but he usually shows up with a big stat line week in, week out. He's a slam-dunk No. 1 receiver as long as he's active, which doesn't appear to be in question leading into the Week 2 road date against the Oakland Raiders.

Falcons | Julio Jones tweaks ankle in loss

Sun, 11 Sep 2016 17:36:39 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) said after the Week 1 loss against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that he tweaked his left ankle. It was the same ankle he injured during a preseason game.

Fantasy Tip: Jones will be evaluated and is worth watching heading into Week 2, obviously. However, it doesn't sound like too big of an injury, so fantasy owners should not be terribly concerned just yet.

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) is "fully ready to go" in the team's season opener Sunday, September 11, against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

Fantasy Tip: Jones got in a full practice on Thursday, so at that point, it looked like a certainty he would be suiting up for Week 1. Owners can now be at ease over their prized WR1, and should expect Jones to put up his usual top-flight numbers against a division opponent whom he usually pounces on.

Falcons | Julio Jones gets in full practice

Thu, 08 Sep 2016 16:06:54 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) was a full participant in practice Thursday, September 8.

Fantasy Tip: This is an upgrade over Wednesday's showing, when the superstar wide-out was a limited participant. Regardless, he was shaping up to be in uniform for Week 1 anyway, and that should certainly be the case as it concerns fantasy lineups. Not only is Jones arguably the best in the game at his position, but he also has a salivating matchup lined up opposite the Bucs.

Mon, 05 Sep 2016 11:30:30 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) will practice in full on Wednesday, Sept. 7, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

Fantasy Tip: Jones left the third preseason game with a limp after getting tangled up with a defender on a deep ball, but there don't appear to be any concerns about his status moving forward. He should still be a top-three pick in all formats and should be counted on to perform like an elite WR1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 1.

Fri, 02 Sep 2016 10:34:17 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) will be "close" to practicing fully Monday, Sept. 5, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

Fantasy Tip: Jones is an elite fantasy option worth selecting in the early first round of drafts. And while he may have a difficult time repeating his 132-catch performance from last year, he could improve on his eight touchdowns. The ankle injury sounds minor, but Jones' health is still worth monitoring leading into the season.
