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.

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.

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.

"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."
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.

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.
Wed, 26 Mar 2014 10:27:18 -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 18:51:29 -0700

Tue, 08 Oct 2013 13:50:31 -0700

Tue, 08 Oct 2013 10:36:09 -0700

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.
Tue, 08 Oct 2013 05:30:51 -0700

Sat, 05 Oct 2013 16:34:15 -0700
Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (knee) was limited during practice Saturday, Oct. 5, and is listed as questionable for Week 5.

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.
Sun, 29 Sep 2013 20:19:04 -0700

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.
Fri, 20 Sep 2013 12:07:31 -0700
Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 20, and is listed as questionable for Week 3.

Thu, 19 Sep 2013 14:54:23 -0700

Sun, 15 Sep 2013 14:52:04 -0700
Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hamstring) was officially listed as questionable for the Week 2 game against the St. Louis Rams, but he certainly looked healthy. He exploded for 11 receptions, 182 yards and an 81-yard touchdown.
Fantasy Tip: If you benched Jones to be on the safe side due to his 50-50 status, it is just one of those unfortunate things that happen in fantasy football. He'll look to keep it going in Week 3 against the Miami Dolphins.
Sun, 15 Sep 2013 06:23:38 -0700
Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (knee) will play in the team's Week 2 game.
Fantasy Tip: Even with the knee issue, Jones is still a must start in all formats, especially with Roddy White likely to play a decoy role again in Week 2. Harry Douglas is also likely to see a big increase in work with all the injury issues in Atlanta.
Fri, 13 Sep 2013 13:55:18 -0700
Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (knee) is fully expected to play in Week 2 against the St. Louis Rams.
Fantasy Tip: Roddy White (ankle) is also dinged up, so Atlanta's top-two receivers probably won't be 100 percent in this one. Jones should still be started, but Harry Douglas may be the biggest beneficiary, along with Tony Gonzalez.
Fri, 13 Sep 2013 12:45:47 -0700
Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (knee) was limited in practice Friday, Sept. 13, and is questionable for the team's Week 2 game.
Fantasy Tip: Jones was limited in practice Thursday as well, so there are some concerns here. Even if he gets on the field Sunday, he may not be at full speed. Check back Sunday morning to see if he is active. If he does play, he is a must start in all formats, especially with Roddy White dealing with his own injury issues.
Thu, 12 Sep 2013 13:58:38 -0700
Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 12.
Wed, 11 Sep 2013 13:16:02 -0700

Sun, 08 Sep 2013 08:30:52 -0700
Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (ankle) is active for Week 1 against the New Orleans Saints.
Fantasy Tip: White may be limited despite the fact that he will suit up against the Saints. Julio Jones should be in line for more targets as a result, and Harry Douglas might be a sneaky flex play in deeper leagues.
Mon, 12 Aug 2013 21:06:27 -0700
