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 touc...

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

Jones (hip) is in line to play Sunday against the Panthers, NFL Network's Albert Breer reports.

Jones (hip) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

A final call on Jones' status is unlikely to come until game day, but Jones at practice on Friday and the NFC South title on the line, fantasy owners and Falcons fans should be optimistic about him suiting up in Week 17.
Jones (hip) took part in Friday's practice, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

It's not clear how much work Jones was able to get in Friday, but his presence on the practice field bodes well for his chances of playing in Week 17. Expect an update on Jones' status when the Falcons release their final injury report of the week Friday afternoon.
Jones (hip) took part in Thursday's walkthrough but ultimately didn't practice, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

If he was a normal player, Jones would have two strikes against him in the form of missed practices to begin the week. While coach Mike Smith is unsure whether the wide receiver will make it three consecutive absences Friday, he expects Jones to suit up and contribute Sunday against the Panthers. Jones followed such a plan in Week 16, when he busted out for 107 yards on seven receptions, so owners shouldn't fret unless Smith's tone changes heading into the weekend.

Jones (hip/oblique) didn't practice Wednesday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Jones' absence is likely a precautionary measure, but owners are advised to watch his status throughout the week to make sure he's on a path to active status this coming Sunday. After the wideout toughed out his hip injury in Week 16 en route to seven receptions for 107 yards, expect him to produce yet again versus a Panthers defense that has yielded 12.3 YPC and two touchdown receptions to wideouts in the past four games.
Jones (hip) had seven catches on eight targets for 107 yards during Sunday's win over the Saints.

Jones (hip) will play Sunday against the Saints, according to Albert Breer of NFL Network.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Jones has not practiced, since suffering the injury in Week 14 against the Steelers, but after being listed as questionable, he reportedly showed enough in warmups to be given the green light. He reportedly was a full participant in Saturday's walkthrough, though that's hardly close to a full practice. Fantasy owners shouldn't expect a full workload, given how much time he has missed due to the ailment.
The Falcons are optimistic that Jones (hip) will play Sunday against the Saints, according to Albert Breer of NFL Network.

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

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.
