  • Julio Jones Gets 137 Yards On Thursday

    Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones had seven receptions for 137 yards on 10 targets in the Week 8 win over Carolina. For the past three weeks, the WR has been playing at a tremendous level and has gotten at least seven receptions, nine targets, and 97 yards the past three games. His volume keeps him in the WR1 tier each week.

  • Julio Jones Remains The Go-To Guy In Atlanta

    Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones has played in only five games this year due to injury, but he's been crucial in three of those games. Jones is averaging 11.2 air yards per target while also facing press coverage on nearly one-third of his 31 catches on the season. Quarterback Matt Ryan has a 131.5 passer rating when targeting the All-Pro wideout. The 31-year-old always seems to be banged up at this point in his career, but when he does play, he remains productive and should continue to be considered a must-start WR1. He's had great success against the Panthers -- the team's Thursday night opponent -- in the past, so go ahead and fire him up this week. Jones has 16 catches (19 targets), 234 yards and two scores in the last two weeks.

  • Julio Jones A WR1 In Week 8

    Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones is a WR1 this Thursday against Carolina. Jones has seen his usual targets and has posted his usual numbers the past two weeks after coming back from an injury. Last week, the WR had eight receptions for 97 yards on nine targets. Though the Panthers allow the fifth-fewest points to fantasy WRs, Jones' elite talent and large role in this offense still merit him as a starter.

  • Julio Jones, Russell Gage Limited Tuesday

    Atlanta Falcons wide receivers Julio Jones (hip) and Russell Gage (knee) were both limited in practice on Tuesday. Jones' injury is new, but the 31-year-old always seems to be fighting through some sort of injury and he should be fine for the Thursday night matchup with the Panthers. The All-Pro wideout missed the Week 5 matchup with Carolina due to an injury, but he should be fine for this one and he remains a locked-in, must-start WR1 whenever he's on the field as the team's No. 1 receiver. Jones has 16 receptions on 19 targets for 234 yards and two touchdowns in the last two weeks against the Vikings and Lions. The Panthers allow the fourth-fewest fantasy points per game to wideouts, but Jones should be in all starting lineups regardless. Gage should play on Thursday, but he's been a non-factor the last five weeks and can be left to the waiver wire in shallow leagues.

  • Julio Jones Earns Limited Practice Designation Monday

    Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones (hip) would have been a limited practice participant Monday had the team taken the field following it's loss Sunday to Detroit. The Falcons will have a quick turnaround with a Thursday showdown with Carolina, a contest that Jones is now questionable for due to the ailment. Jones has found an elite rhythm over his past two contests, combining for 16 receptions, 234 receiving yards, and two touchdowns. Both he and Calvin Ridley have managed to succeed at a high level even with the presence of the other, but Ridley would undoubtedly ascend the rankings should Jones be held out. Check back later in the week for updates on the seven-time Pro Bowler as it concerns his status for what should be a favorable matchup against the Panthers' secondary.

  • Julio Jones Falls Just Shy Of 100-Yard Day

    Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones paced the team in targets, nine, receptions, eight, and receiving yards, 97, in a 23-22 loss to the Lions. He may not have found the end zone, but it's the kind of consistent performance that fantasy managers have come to expect from the former Alabama star. Jones has now averaged 10.3 targets per game in the contests that he's been healthy for, which places him where he's been for the last seven or so seasons- in the elite WR1 conversation. Week 8 brings a matchup against the Panthers, who have struggled to contain opposing number-one wideouts this season.

  • Julio Jones On Track To Play

    Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones (hamstring) is fully expected to suit up on Sunday against the Lions. Fantasy managers likely weren't fooled by Jones' weekly tour with the injury report, as he often toughs it out and plays through things. The veteran wideout is coming off a monster game and has a juicy matchup against Detroit's struggling secondary. Fire him up as an elite WR1.

  • Julio Jones An Easy Start In Week 7

    Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones (hamstring) doesn't have an injury designation and will be suiting up against the Lions in Week 7. Jones has played in four games this year, though he's technically only been healthy in two of them. Here's what he's averaged in those two games: 11 targets, 8.5 receptions, 147 receiving yards, and one touchdown per game. Now he gets to face a Lions Defense allowing the seventh-most fantasy points per game to opposing wideouts. Jones is an easy WR1 play in Week 7.

  • Julio Jones Gets 137 Yards

    Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones finished Week 6 with eight receptions for 137 yards and two scores on 10 targets. After missing last week due to injury, Jones returned to his elite form and put on an impressive performance while reminding managers why he is worth a first-round pick. He remains in the WR1 tier each week given his incredible target share and talent.

  • Julio Jones Set To Return In Week 6

    Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones (hamstring) isn't on the final injury report for the Week 6 game against the Vikings, meaning he's likely to return to the field on Sunday after a one-game absence. The 31-year-old has aggravated the same hamstring injury multiple times this year, though, so hopefully it doesn't become a problem yet again. Minnesota's secondary is easily beatable and have allowed the fourth-most fantasy points per game to opposing wideouts in 2020, so Jones belongs back in starting lineups, even if he's become a much bigger risk these days. With the All-Pro receiver set to return this weekend, it's unlikely that Russell Gage or Olamide Zaccheaus will stand out for fantasy managers in deeper leagues.
