Julio Jones: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Jones is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Saints due to an ankle injury.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Jones sustained the ailment shortly before halftime with four catches (on six targets) for 66 yards already on the ledger. If he returns, he'll have a chance to challenge for a few regular season records, namely Calvin Johnson's 1,964 yards receiving from 2012.
Jones reeled in nine of 11 targets for a season-high 178 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over Carolina.

Jones (knee) hauled in seven of 10 targets for 88 yards in Sunday's 38-0 loss to the Panthers. He also fumbled once but it was recovered.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Jones failed to reach the century mark in receiving yards for the third straight week, despite receiving double-digit targets for the second consecutive game. The game got out of hand early for Atlanta, which has now dropped six straight. Despite the blowout, Jones secured his longest reception, 46 yards, since a 54-yard grab in Week 9 versus the 49ers. The five-year pro also added to his career-best reception total, with Sunday's haul giving him an eye-popping 109 on the season with three games still remaining. Jones and the Falcons face off against the Jaguars on the road in Week 15.

Jones (knee) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Panthers.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

With Jones listed as a full practice participant Friday, his difficult matchup is a far greater concern than his minor knee injury. Not only will he have to face a top defense, but there's also a good chance he'll be matched up with DPOY candidate Josh Norman for most of the afternoon. Of course, it still won't be surprising if Jones' combination of talent and volume ultimately wins out.
Jones (knee) remained limited in practice Thursday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports. "The knee is great...I don't think it's anything where I'm going to miss time," Jones told Michael Cunningham of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Jones (knee) was limited at Wednesday's practice, the Falcons' official site reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Jones previously dealt with a knee injury during the first month of the 2013 campaign, which was ultimately abbreviated due to a broken foot. His ability to fit in individual drills Wednesday indicates that the current case isn't severe, but owners should keep an eye on his practice participation as the week unfolds.
Jones caught eight of 17 targets for 93 yards Sunday against the Buccaneers.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

With so many big seasons by the league’s top wideouts, it’s easy to forget Jones was atop the receiving-yardage board when he fractured his foot in Week 5. In fact, in five games, he either had a touchdown or 99 yards in every one. At 6-3, 220 and with 4.34 speed, Jones is arguably the league’s most athletic receiver besides Calvin Johnson, and like Johnson can operate from long range and in the red zone. In fact, Jones had three catches of 40-plus in just five games, a pace that would have put him among the league leaders. Even better, Jones had seven inside-the-10 looks in those five games, a pace that would have dwarfed league-leader Dez Bryant’s 16 in a full season. Of course, Jones was playing alongside a gimpy Roddy White who would have taken at least a couple of those goal-line opportunities were he at full strength. But White will turn 33 in November, so it’s likely Jones’ role will grow relative to White’s in any event. Throw in Tony Gonzalez’s retirement, and Jones – long one of the league’s most efficient wideouts – could also become one of its most heavily targeted. Jones had surgery in October, but is working with the team’s training staff and expected to return sometime in training camp.

2013

If it weren't for Roddy White's established rapport with Matt Ryan and track record of durability, Jones would have a strong case to be the No. 2 receiver on the board. As it stands, Jones is one of the best per-play receivers in the league, averaging 9.3 YPT (9th) last year, and despite being just 19th in targets (129) tied for 11th with 17 catches of 20-plus and ninth with five catches of 40 or more yards. At 6-3, 220, and having run a 4.34 40 at the NFL Combine, Jones is a rare combination of size and speed, possibly the most physically gifted wideout this side of Calvin Johnson. But with White (143 targets) and Tony Gonzalez (124 targets) set to return, and Steven Jackson likely to see his share of touches near the goal line, Jones' ceiling is lower than that of the other elite options on the board.

2012

While Roddy White made his living on volume, Jones was the team’s big-play weapon. Jones averaged a whopping 17.8 YPC (4th among 90-target WR) and 10.1 YPT (7th) and had six catches of 40-plus yards (tied for 7th) in just 13 games. At 6-3, 220, and having run a 4.34 40 at the NFL Combine, Jones is a rare combination of size and speed arguably surpassed only by Calvin Johnson. Jones scored eight TDs despite seeing almost no work inside the red zone – just seven targets, only one of which was from inside the 10. If that keeps up, it’s likely he could approach double-digit scores solely from long distance. But if the Falcons take advantage of Jones’ size from in close, he could find himself among the league leaders. Jones should improve in Year 2, and his rapport with quarterback Matt Ryan should only get better. But as long as White is Ryan’s first read, and Tony Gonzalez (21 targets) and Michael Turner (60 rushes) are the team’s top options in the red zone, Jones’ ceiling will be capped.

2011

Most rookie receivers don't find themselves in prominent roles off the bat. But given what the Falcons gave up to get Jones – the 27th pick, the 59th pick, the 124th pick and next year's first and fourth rounders – their lack of depth beyond Roddy White and their win-now mentality, the team will do everything in its power to get him involved this year. At 6-3, 220 and having run a 4.34 40 at the NFL Combine, Jones is a tremendous athlete and dangerous in any area of the field. He's got ideal red-zone size, a 38-inch vertical leap and good hands. Jones isn't particularly elusive in the open field, but he's tough to bring down and can get yards after the catch. He might not start right away, and White will still be Matt Ryan's first look, but expect Jones to be a factor this year. Jones had surgery to repair a fracture in his foot in March but should be healthy for the start of training camp.
