11/21/2014 11:54:00 AM
Description: Falcons receiver Julio Jones (illness) has returned to practice Friday.
Insight: Jones figured to be fine, but it's was worth watching. He still has a tough matchup, facing cornerback in Joe Haden, so may not be a top play.
 
11/20/2014 1:28:00 PM
Description: Falcons receiver Julio Jones has missed another practice due to illness.
Insight: Jones figures to be fine by the weekend and in fact is expected to practice Friday, but it's worth watching. If he's less than 100 percent and facing a tough cornerback in Joe Haden he might not be a top play.
 
11/16/2014 6:13:00 PM
Description: Falcons receiver Julio Jones caught six passes for 59 yards against the Panthers.
Insight: Again, Jones did not find the end zone. He has not scored since Oct. 12. Jones, however, remains a WR1.
 
11/9/2014 7:19:00 PM
Description: Falcons receiver Julio Jones had a team-high 119 receiving yards.
Insight: Jones had eight catches on 11 targets, and is quietly having another productive season. He is clearly a WR1.
 
11/6/2014 2:38:00 PM
Description: Falcons receiver Julio Jones says he's finally 100 percent over the ankle injury, according to Vaughn McClure tweet.
Insight: Jones hasn't scored since Week 3 and didn't crack the 70-yard mark in the three games before Atlanta's bye last weekend. We expect to see the "old" Jones against a Bucs defense that he toasted earlier this season.
 
10/26/2014 1:08:00 PM
Description: Falcons receiver Julio Jones was limited to just 58 yards on four catches.
Insight: That won't make any of his fantasy owners happy. He was tied with Roddy White for targets with six, but we like to see him targeted 10 times or more per game.
 
10/26/2014 8:51:00 AM
Description: Falcons receiver Julio Jones was limited in practice earlier in the week, but was never really a question mark for Week 8 and as expected is active.
Insight: Jones (49-676-3) and the Falcons face a Lions defense which has stubbornly yielded a league-low seven touchdown passes this season (tied with Baltimore).
 
10/23/2014 11:57:00 AM
Description: Falcons receiver Julio Jones was limited in Wednesday's practice, but was a full participant in Thursday's session and should be in all fantasy lineups Sunday morning.
Insight: Many players take Wednesday's practice off and it's not a real indicator of whether a player is ready for Sunday. Jones and the Falcons face a Lions defense which has stubbornly yielded a league-low seven touchdown passes this season (tied with Baltimore).
 
10/13/2014 10:57:00 AM
Description: Falcons receiver Julio Jones was targeted 12 times, but caught just four for 68 yards.
Insight: Jones seems to be in a pattern of producing big games every other week and this was an off week. Look for a bounce back game against Baltimore.
 
9/29/2014 10:37:00 AM
Description: Falcons receiver Julio Jones had a very pedestrian six catch, 82-yard day.
Insight: Ryan targeted Roddy White 14 times and Jones eight times and Devin Hester seven times.
 
9/14/2014 5:40:00 PM
Description: Falcons receiver Julio Jones caught seven passes for 88 yards and a touchdown against the Bengals in Week 2.
Insight: It was a rough day overall for the Atlanta passing game as Ryan threw three interceptions, but Jones finished with a fine stat line. Ryan targeted him 13 times, five more than anyone else.
 
8/23/2014 9:57:00 PM
Description: Falcons receiver Julio Jones caught two passes including a touchdown in Saturday's preseason game against the Titans.
Insight: Matt Ryan found Jones for a 52-yard TD pass in the second quarter. Seeing as how well Ryan looked on Saturday and due to the fact the Falcons look poised to be in a lot of high scoring games, Jones definitely has potential to return to those 2012 numbers in which he caught 79 balls for 1,198 yards and 10 touchdowns.
 
8/19/2014 8:39:00 PM
Description: Falcons receiver Julio Jones (foot) is set to return to a normal practice routine, according to ESPN.com's Vaughn McClure.
Insight: Jones has been practicing every other day as he works his way back from foot surgery. He had 41 catches for 580 yards and two touchdowns in five games last season and has No. 1 overall fantasy upside at his position if he can stay healthy.
 
8/5/2014 3:43:00 PM
Description: Falcons receiver Julio Jones (foot) has been practicing every other day by design, according to a Vaughn McClure report.
Insight: Jones has said he feels 100 percent and the Falcons are trying to keep him that way until the season begins. Prior to the injury, Jones was finally reaching his enormous potential and had accumulated 580 yards and two touchdowns on 41 catches, a pace of 131 receptions and 1,856 yards per 16 games.
 
6/10/2014 8:03:00 PM
Description: According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Falcons receiver Julio Jones (foot) is hoping to be back by Week 1 of the regular season.
Insight: He had to have season-ending foot surgery after five games in 2013. Prior to the injury, Jones was finally reaching his enormous potential and had accumulated 580 yards and two touchdowns on 41 catches, a pace of 131 receptions and 1,856 yards per 16 games.
 
5/2/2014 8:34:00 PM
Description: The Falcons have picked up Julio Jones' option for 2015. SOURCE: Jay Glazer, Fox Sports
Insight: He missed most of last season due to foot surgery. If healthy, Jones should be a top-five fantasy wide receiver next season. If not, it will mean more targets for Roddy White and Harry Douglas.
 
10/9/2013 7:37:00 PM
Description: The Falcons have officially ruled Julio Jones out for the season. SOURCE: Chris Mortensen, ESPN
Insight: Jones broke his foot in Week 5 and is now slated for season-ending surgery. He had been on pace for a career-high 1,856 yards and 131 catches. Quarterback Matt Ryan should take a big hit in the rankings without Jones at his disposal.
 
10/8/2013 7:50:00 PM
Description: According to Jason Cole of NationalFootballPost.com, a Falcons source said that receiver Julio Jones broke the screw that was put in his foot during a 2011 surgery.
Insight: Jones is expected to miss the rest of the season with the injury. With Roddy White (ankle, hamstring) also questionable for Week 7, Harry Douglas should be a hot waiver pickup this week.
 
10/8/2013 1:24:00 PM
Description: Atlanta wideout Julio Jones, who was spotted limping out of the x-ray room after Monday night's loss to the New York Jets, might be sidelined for the remainder of the season, according to Jay Glazer.
Insight: Jones had eight catches for 99 yards, but couldn't score. If Jones is out for the season, Harry Douglas' stock should take a huge jump.
 
10/8/2013 10:46:00 AM
Description: Atlanta wideout Julio Jones was spotted limping out of the x-ray room after Monday night's loss to the New York Jets, according to nfl.com reporter Jeff Darlington.
Insight: Jones had eight catches for 99 yards, but could score. Fortunately for Jones and his fantasy owners, the Falcons have a bye in Week 6 and he should be ready to go after the extra rest.
