Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Jones should be able to play in Week 4. He’s heading into a rough stretch of his schedule (CAR, DEN and SEA), but things get much easier in Week 7.

Scouting Report

Week 3 at New Orleans
Julio Jones caught all five of his targets for 106 yards with a touchdown in the Falcons’ Week 2 upset of the Raiders. The score came on a 21-yard pass from Matt Ryan late in the first quarter that gave the Falcons a 10-7 lead. The pair also connected on a 46-yard pass early in the fourth quarter, which set up a Justin Hardy touchdown to give Atlanta the lead for good.

Unfortunately, Jones also suffered a calf strain during the win and missed the Falcons’ final drive. Coach Dan Quinn has been optimistic about the injury and reports from Atlanta suggest that the calf bruise is only minor. Jones was held out of practice on Thursday and Friday, but should return at least on a limited basis Saturday before the Falcons head to New Orleans to play the Saints on Monday night.

Assuming Jones doesn’t suffer a setback, he’s a must-start against a Saints team that owns fantasy’s No. 27-ranked defense versus wide receivers. Jones is our No. 1 WR for Week 3.
