Julio Jones, WR Atlanta Falcons

Most Recent News

Falcons WR Julio Jones (knee, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 14. Jones is not a recommended daily play this week, at least in cash games. He has not fared well against Carolina in recent games (10 catches for 117 yards combined in two games last year) and Panther CB Josh Norman is playing as well as anyone. Since Week 4, Jones is the #11 WR, and given the matchup, he’s not necessarily a must-start in season-long leagues either.

Scouting Report

Week 17 vs. New Orleans
Julio Jones caught nine-of-11 targets for 178 yards and a touchdown in the Falcons' Week 16 upset win over the Panthers. While Josh Norman held Jones to 51 yards in the first half, the Atlanta receiver would have the last laugh. Jones' touchdown came on a highlight-reel play in which he jumped over Luke Kuechly and snatched the ball over the linebacker's head. He then raced to the end zone for what would be a 70-yard score and a game-changing moment in the team's victory. Having the best year of any receiver in Falcons' history, Jones should record his ninth 100-yard game of the season when he takes on the Saints' horrific defense on Sunday. Ranked as our WR1 for Week 17, Jones is a must-start in all fantasy formats.
