Falcons WR Julio Jones battles 'lower-body injury' in Week 13

Sunday, December 4, 2016, 7:14pm

ABC News - [Full Article]

Falcons WR Julio Jones was in and out of the lineup late in the game with what coach Dan Quinn called "a lower-body injury."

Fantasy Impact:

Jones was noticeably hobbled on the sideline. After the game he said, "I'm OK. I'm good to go." Jones has played through a multitude of injuries this season, including a shoulder last week, but he has yet to miss a start, the story pointed out. Obviously this is worth monitoring this week leading up to what is likely fantasy playoff time.

Falcons coach Dan Quinn said Julio Jones got his knee examined but is fine and good to go vs. Bucs Thursday night.

Fantasy Impact:

It's a short week for the Falcons so this is good news. Jones was banged up early in the game and didn't get a lot of targets in the second half. So, he is coming off an unimpressive 3-29-0 line against the Packers in what ended up being a shootout.

'Seems likely' that Richard Sherman will shadow Falcons WR Julio Jones

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Seahawks obviously will not reveal their plan for Sunday's game, but given how they've used Richard Sherman over the past two years, it seems likely that he'll shadow Falcons WR Julio Jones. DeShawn Shead's strength is going up against bigger receivers such as Mohamed Sanu, so playing the matchups makes sense.

Fantasy Impact:

This is a minor downgrade for Jones, but he shouldn't be benched in this situation, given his talent and how well Matt Ryan is playing right now.

Week 3 MNF Injury Report: WRs Julio Jones, Willie Snead questionable

Saturday, September 24, 2016, 4:30pm

Falcons vs. Saints
Falcons
OUT
LB De'Vondre Campbell (ankle), LB Paul Worrilow (groin)

QUESTIONABLE
WR Julio Jones (calf)

Saints
OUT
T Terron Armstead (knee), CB Delvin Breaux (fibula)

QUESTIONABLE
DT Tyeler Davison (shoulder, foot), LB Dannell Ellerbe (quadricep), TE Josh Hill (ankle), DE Cameron Jordan (knee), WR Willie Snead (toe), S Kenny Vaccaro (ankle)

Fantasy Impact:

Jones has a calf injury for the Falcons and Snead a toe injury for the Saints. Jones was limited Saturday in practice but we had a report earlier Saturday that said he will play. Snead didn't practice Thursday or Friday and was limited Saturday. Michael Thomas would get a bump up if Snead can't go. It's a favorable matchup for both teams in what is shaping up to be a high-scoring game.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) says he'll play Week 3

Saturday, September 24, 2016, 2:05pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones, who returned to practice Saturday while recovering from a calf injury, is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the New Orleans Saints but will play.

"Yes, I'll play Monday night," Jones said. "I wouldn't chance it if I didn't (feel right), if I felt like I was going to overcompensate and something else was going to get tore up or it was going to get worse or anything like that. It's just warming that muscle up, warming up everything, making sure everything is firing properly."

Fantasy Impact:

Jones, held out of practice Thursday and Friday, was limited Saturday. However, he appeared to have his explosion running across the red zone and catching passes near the start of practice. In between reps, Jones was spotted bouncing up and down as if to test and make sure his calf was fine, the story said.
