  • Jones brought in five of 11 targets for 98 yards in Thursday's 20-17 win over the Saints. Jones was just shy of his fourth 100-yard effort of the campaign, but his performance was nevertheless a nice bounce-back after a 24-yard tally in Week 13 against the Vikings. The 28-year-old wideout is unlikely to come close to replicate his 253-yard outburst in Week 12 versus the Buccaneers, but he naturally remains a highly valued asset in all formats during fantasy playoff season and has now seen double-digit targets in three of his past four contests. He'll look to do damage to the Tampa secondary again when the Falcons tangle with the Buccaneers in Week 15.

  • Jones caught two of six passes for 24 yards during Sunday's 14-9 loss to the Vikings. Jones struggled to get loose from Xavier Rhodes, who shadowed him throughout the day, and also received a steady dose of double teams. He tied for the team lead in targets but still came away with his lowest yardage output of the season. Jones, who was coming off a game in which he caught 12 passes for 253 yards and a pair of scores, will look to get back on track Thursday against the Saints.

  • Falcons' Julio Jones: Cleared for Week 13

    Jones (ankle) doesn't have a designation on the final injury report for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports. Limited practice participation has become the norm for Jones, who just recorded the third 250-yard performance of his career in a 34-20 win over the Buccaneers in Week 12. He had previously been reliable more so than spectacular, but last week's performance answered any questions about whether his usual assortment of minor lower-body injuries has been impacting his performance.

  • Falcons' Julio Jones: Limited by ankle Wednesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Jones (ankle) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports. Jones is making a regular appearance on the injury report for the fourth consecutive week, a stretch in which he's accrued 23 catches (on 33 targets) for 381 yards and two scores. Of course, the bulk of the production derives from his 253-yard, two-touchdown outburst in last Sunday's win over the Buccaneers. Assuming his health checks out by the end of the week, Jones will attempt to exploit a Vikings defense Sunday that has conceded eight touchdowns and 7.5 yards per target to wideouts in 11 games this season.

  • Jones brought in 12 of 15 targets for 253 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 34-20 win over the Buccaneers. He also rushed once for 15 yards. Despite a solid season overall, Jones had been frustrating fantasy owners with a lack of the next-level performances that he'd generated more frequently in past years. That dissatisfaction came to a resounding end Sunday, as Jones put together an NFL record third 250-yard performance of his career and his best yardage total since a career-best 300-yard effort versus the Panthers in Week 4 of 2016. The multi-time Pro Bowler also logged multiple touchdowns for the first time this season, hauling in scoring throws of 51 yards from fellow receiver Mohamed Sanu on a trick play early in the second quarter and 25 yards from Matt Ryan later in the period. Jones had only found the end zone once coming into Week 12, so perhaps Sunday's success is a step toward him making up for lost time in that regard as well. With his first truly dominant effort of 2017 under his belt, Jones will now face the much tougher challenge of the Vikings secondary in a pivotal Week 13 conference showdown.
