Player Outlook

By some measures, Jones was a disappointment last year, but it won't change how Fantasy owners view him this year. From 2015 to 2016 his targets dropped by over 30 percent, his receptions by nearly 40 percent and his yards by nearly 25 percent. Missing two games and being a decoy for another clearly played a role, but it was the evolution of the Falcons offense that really dinged Jones' stats.  Matt Ryan didn't need to force him the ball as other Falcons players stepped up, especially in the end zone. There's a very real chance this continues, but not to the point where Jones' numbers decline further. Jones is a safe bet to be among the league leaders in catches and receiving yards, thus serving Fantasy owners safely as a No. 1 receiver. He'll be one of the first three receivers taken in every draft, likely anywhere from third to eighth overall. 

Player News
  • Jones (toe) looked ready for game action while he caught passes during the Falcons' last two days of training camp, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports. Jones saw his most extensive involvement in practice over the weekend, participating in 11-on-11 scrimmages and hauling in passes within Atlanta's new offensive scheme. The wideout had surgery in February to remove a bunion from his left foot, and although he missed the Falcons' preseason opener and may remain sidelined during the rest of the exhibition slate, Jones has long maintained that he'll be ready for Week 1. With Jones indicating he hasn't experienced any setbacks, it appears he's destined to make good on his prediction, which should help quell some reservations fantasy owners may have had about drafting him. Furthermore, with new offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian emphasizing an increase in Jones' red-zone production in 2017, the wideout could become even more dangerous once back on the field.

  • Falcons' Julio Jones: Won't play Thursday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Coach Dan Quinn relayed Tuesday that Jones won't play in Thursday's preseason opener against the Dolphins, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports. The same applies to fellow wideout Taylor Gabriel, though they'll both go through warmups Thursday. With no reported setbacks following a procedure in February to remove a bunion from his foot, Jones being held out Thursday is merely precautionary, with the elite fantasy wideout having indicated recently that he feels good and has been moving well on the practice field, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's D. Orlando Ledbetter.

  • Jones (toe) said he hasn't had any discussions with the coaching staff about his availability for Thursday's preseason opener in Miami, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's D. Orlando Ledbetter reports. Jones acknowledged he'd only log a few snaps if he were to play. His workload at training camp has been limited, seemingly as a measure of caution as he rounds back into top form after having surgery in February to remove a bunion from his foot. He'll likely make a couple brief appearances this preseason as he ramps things up before Week 1. There haven't been any reported setbacks.

  • Jones (toe) participated in 11-on-11 work at Wednesday's practice, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports. The Falcons have eased Jones in as a limited participant for the first week of training camp while he works his way back from February surgery to remove a bunion from his foot. His absence from 11-on-11 work before Wednesday likely was a product of caution rather than necessity, but the Falcons still figure to limit Jones' reps, even if he proves he's back to 100 percent, with the hope of keeping him healthy and fresh for Week 1 in Chicago. Don't expect to see him on the field much this preseason.

  • Jones (toe) will be a limited participant to start training camp, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Jones' limited participation throughout the early stages of training camp comes as no surprise, while the Falcons continue to proceed cautiously with their star wide receiver for good reason. Fellow wideout Taylor Gabriel (leg) will also be limited, so expect Mohamed Sanu and Justin Hardy to see additional reps with the first team during practice.
