Falcons' Julio Jones: Could see more red-zone targets under new OC
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian wants to get Jones (toe) more looks in the red zone in 2017, Mark Inabinett of reports.

Sarkisian evidently believes Jones was underutilized in the red zone last season and he definitely has a point: Jones finished the 2016 season with just 10 targets inside the 20-yard line, which ranked fourth on his own team and tied for 81st among all pass catchers in the league. It's tough to find cracks in one of last season's most efficient red-zone offenses, but one would think getting this 6-3, 220-pound, two-time All-Pro receiver more involved could be an area for improvement. However, that's likely easier said than done, considering Jones faces much more double coverage than the average wideout -- especially near the goal line. While fantasy owners should appreciate Sarkisian's stated intention to try to take advantage of his No. 1 receiver's end-zone capabilities, remember that Jones has only topped six scores once in the past four years and should continue to be the focus of opposing defenses.

Falcons' Julio Jones: Late-July return anticipated
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (toe) is not anticipated to return until training camp in late July, but has been helping his teammates with his observations during the Falcons' offseason program, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Jones is being held out of Atlanta's OTAs after undergoing surgery to remove a bunion from his foot back in February. That procedure came with a recovery timetable of four-to-five months, thus making a late-July return for training camp right on schedule. Until then, the superstar wideout will continue to aid the Falcons' preparations by giving pointers during early practice sessions.

Falcons' Julio Jones: Present for offseason program but limited
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (toe) is participating in the Falcons' voluntary offseason program in a limited fashion, with the expectation he'll be back to full strength for training camp, Matt Winkeljohn of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Still rehabbing from February surgery to remove a bunion, Jones has been walking around the team facility without a noticeable limp. His status as a limited participant likely will stretch beyond April workouts and into May, but he should be a full go for the start of training camp in late July, or possibly even for mandatory minicamp in mid-to-late June. His surgery came with an expected rehab timetable of four-to-five months.

Falcons' Julio Jones: Progressing with rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is progressing well in his recovery from last month's surgery to remove a bunion from his foot, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. "Julio is doing good," head coach Dan Quinn said at the owners' meeting last week. "He had surgery on his foot. That part is coming along really well, the strengthening of his toe and foot. Like most surgeries, the first part is the healing and then comes the strengthening. He's starting to get into the strengthening phase."

During any public appearance, Quinn and Jones himself can expect to be queried about the state of the wideout's health, despite the knowledge that a 4-to-5 month rehabilitation is expected. Consequently, there's little chance of Jones making an appearance during the offseason program, so these little tidbits of information will likely dominate the process as he aims for 100 capacity by the commencement of training camp.

Falcons' Julio Jones: Says recovery is still on track
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (toe) seemed to be moving around pretty well during a Wednesday appearance at the Georgia State Capitol, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Recovering from March 6 surgery to address a bunion, Jones was wearing a boot but didn't need crutches to walk. He said his foot feels good, and while he'll still miss the Falcons' offseason program, the 28-year-old wideout remain on track for training camp. With no crucial offseason additions or losses, the 2017 Atlanta offense should look very similar to the 2016 iteration.
