Divisional Round at Philadelphia Eagles
Julio Jones caught 9-of-10 targets for 94 yards and a touchdown in the Falcons’ Wild Card win over the Rams. Jones was the only Atlanta player to catch more than four passes as he routinely found openings in L.A.’s secondary. His touchdown was on a pop-up from Matt Ryan, who threw the pass while his back foot was sliding backward.
In seven postseason games, Jones has 52 receptions on 65 targets for 733 yards and 6 touchdowns. He’s a big-time performer as it is, but he really shows up in the playoffs. Jones was dealing with an ankle injury but Dan Quinn confirmed on Thursday that his star receiver will play Saturday when the Falcons travel to Philadelphia to take on an Eagles defense ranked 23rd against fantasy receivers. Ranked as our No. 2 WR for the Divisional Round, Jones in a bona fide WR1 for this weekend.
