2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
Julio Jones has gone from being arguably the top fantasy receiver to merely being one of the top ten options for fantasy managers to consider on draft day. From 2012 to 2015 the Falcons attempted at least 600 passes during the regular season. That number dipped to 537 last season; a total less than 25 other NFL teams. This helps explain why Jones' targets per game dropped below double-digits for the first time since the 2012 last season. The lower target load not only had an impact on his overall fantasy scoring, it made Jones a little less consistent as a fantasy asset posting five games with 6 or less fantasy points. Turf toe and recurring hamstring injuries are additional red flags fantasy owners must consider as Jones has only played in all sixteen games once over the past four seasons. The Falcons frequently let him play at less than full health to keep defenses honest which makes him a potentially tough lineup choice during the fantasy campaign. He had surgery on his foot during the off-season so there is hope that he can put some of his lower body injuries in the rearview mirror. Despite the risks, Jones possesses elite talent on one of the highest scoring teams in the league yielding the potential to be one of the game's best overall fantasy players in 2017.

News From The Past 90 Days
HC notes Julio Jones lack of involvement
Dan Quinn unsatisfied with how often top WR is getting the ball
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 16, 6:50 pm

Atlanta Falcons
Falcons HC Dan Quinn said when asked if he's satisfied with how much Julio Jones is getting the ball. "No, I'm not." Quinn mentioned that more offensive plays will help that situation, with Jones being such a dynamic player. (ESPN - Vaughn McClure)

FFToday's Take: Excluding Week 4 in which he left early due to injury, Jones is averaging over 8.25 in his other four outings. While that number should be a bit higher, it has been the quality (i.e. lack of red zone looks) rather than the quantity of targets that has been the biggest problem. Perhaps the most telling stat: part-timer Taylor Gabriel (five) and Mohamed Sanu (three) each have more red zone targets than Jones (two) so far. Given his track record, he remains a great buy-low.


Injury Julio Jones declares himself ready for Week 6
Suffered minor hip flexor injury in Week 4
By: Doug Orth | Thu Oct 12, 6:40 pm

Atlanta Falcons
Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones said a hip flexor injury won't keep him from playing against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. Jones, who suffered the injury in a Week 4 loss to Buffalo, had last week's bye to rest and recover. He has been limited the last two days of practice. "I feel great," Jones told reporters Thursday. "We just have a plan here. I've been doing it the whole year. So, limited means really nothing. I'll be ready to go." (ESPN - Vaughn McClure)

FFToday's Take: So far, the offseason talk of feeding Jones the ball more often in the red zone has yet to come to fruition. With that said, a Week 6 game against the Dolphins with Mohamed Sanu unlikely to play seems like a prime spot for him to score his first touchdown of the season. Although the lack of touchdowns is frustrating for his owners, perhaps no receiver in the NFL has a higher ceiling week to week. Continue to play him with confidence.


Injury Julio Jones not expected to miss time
Hip flexor

Atlanta Falcons
Falcons WR Julio Jones has a hip flexor injury but with a bye this week, Atlanta does not expect him to miss playing time, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Julio missed a good portion of Week 4 with a hip injury but will get to rest during the team's bye in Week 5. He's expected to have an MRI today.


Julio Jones primed to see more red zone looks?
Team placing emphasis on getting top WR more targets in close
By: Doug Orth | Mon Aug 14, 7:50 pm

Atlanta Falcons
Seems to be a real emphasis around getting Julio Jones more touches in the red zone this camp. (Head coach Dan Quinn) said he's been a real factor there. (AtlantaFalcons.com)

FFToday's Take: New OC Steve Sarkisian has been consistent about feeding Jones near the goal line, so perhaps this is the year he breaks through in the touchdown department. Besides his history with foot injuries, the one thing keeping Jones from becoming possibly the best receiver in fantasy football is the fact he has topped eight TDs just once. He's a top-three fantasy receiver regardless and a near-lock to come off the board among the first five picks in most drafts.
