2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
Having parted ways with a boatload of draft picks in order to draft Jones with the 6th overall pick, the Falcons were expecting big things from the former Alabama product. And Jones didn’t disappoint, hauling in 54 passes for 959 yards and eight touchdowns despite a hamstring injury that caused him to miss three full games and resulted in him not being targeted in another contest. He possesses elite size and speed and his rookie performance suggests that Jones will become an elite receiver in the league. Will it happen in 2012? His explosive performance as a rookie (17.8 yards per reception and nearly 1,000 receiving yards on just 94 targets) suggests that it is possible. However, the smart money is on Jones improving on his production as a rookie but not receiving elite status just yet. Roddy White soaks up a pile of targets (leading the league in each of the last two seasons with 179) and while the Falcons plan on throwing the ball more in 2012, no one is predicting they will be amongst the league leaders in passing attempts. Jones shapes up as one of the top three dynasty league wide receivers along with Calvin Johnson and A.J. Green and as a lower tier WR1 in 2012.

Comment: The hype maching is in full effect and for good reason. If you want upside in your wide receiver pick, JJ is your man.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Julio Jones to increase workload     -- Wed Aug 20 5:19 pm --

Falcons receiver feeling 'no pain' in surgically repaired foot
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones, who admitted having a mental hurdle to overcome following a second right foot surgery last year, said Wednesday the doctors reassured him his foot is fully healed, and he will increase his practice schedule. (ESPN.com)

FF Today's Take: Another step in the right direction for Julio Jones. This is on par with previous reports that had Jones progressing well throughout the offseason. He played in his first game last week and now it sounds like Matt Ryan's top target will begin practicing on consecutive days. Fantasy owners are wisely making him a top ten fantasy wideout in recent weeks and should get a good look at him Saturday night against the Titans.
Injury Julio Jones will be limited to begin camp     -- Wed Jul 23 7:05 am --

Falcons star receiver cleared for training camp
Julio Jones, the Falcons’ dynamic young wide receiver, has been cleared for training camp practice, which starts on Friday, head coach Mike Smith told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Tuesday. However, Jones, who’s recovering from foot surgery, will be limited. (Atlanta Journal Constitution)

FF Today's Take: Jones is coming his second foot surgery for the same issue so it's wise for the team to be cautious with their star receiver. The fact that his snaps will be limited shouldn't change his status as a WR1.
Injury ATL confident Julio Jones will return to old self     -- Thu Jul 10 4:40 pm --

Under contract through 2015
Giving QB Matt Ryan all the protection in the world means nothing without playmakers catching the ball. That's why the Falcons have to lock up top receiver Julio Jones with a lucrative, long-term contract. Although Jones is coming off a significant foot injury, the Falcons are certain he'll return to his old explosive self. At his best, Jones is probably one of the top two receivers in the league, along with Calvin Johnson. Johnson makes $16 million per year; Jones will make $10,176,000 in 2015 as part of the option year. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: Jones' recovery figures to be one of the more-discussed subjects of training camp, but there is not debating that he is a top-five receiver when healthy. Despite questions about his foot going forward, it is unlikely he will slip much past his early-second round ADP in standard and PPR formats.
