Falcons OC wants to use WR Julio Jones more in the red zone

ESPN - [Full Article]

New Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian hopes to enhance one of the league's top offenses, and that could mean more red-zone touches for top receiver Julio Jones.

"I think, No. 1, they were still very good in the red zone," Sarkisian said of last year's Falcons. "But when you have a player like Julio, it's making sure we maximize his opportunities because there is so much double-coverage, there are so many unique coverages that roll his way that when we don't get that, let's make sure he's one of the primary receivers on that play because it is such a tough matchup for anybody one on one."

Fantasy Impact:

Jones was tied for 87th in red zone targets (9). It's the same number of red zone targets as Terrance West, Braxton Miller and Tyler Boyd had last year, so there is a lot of room for improvement. If he sees more targets in the red zone, it will no doubt help his overall fantasy value.
