Falcons WR Julio Jones (knee) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week. Jones was removed from the injury report, so he’s good to go.

Week 7 vs. San Diego
Julio Jones caught seven-of-nine targets for 139 yards and a touchdown in the Falcons Week 6 loss to the Seahawks. His touchdown came on a 36-yard score when Richard Sherman jumped the tight end in front of him and Jones got behind the defense for an easy score. Unfortunately for the Falcons, Jones had a rough close to the game when he had a pass go off his hands and into the waiting arms of Seattle safety Earl Thomas for a back-breaking interception, and then didn't draw a flag on a clear pass interference penalty on Sherman that essentially ended the game.
Jones remains an elite fantasy receiver and has a great matchup on Sunday when the Falcons host the Chargers. San Diego has the ninth ranked fantasy defense versus wide receivers but they're also surrendering over 25 points per game so Jones and Co. should score early and often. Julio is our WR2 for Week 7 and is a must-start in all formats.
