Description: Falcons receiver Julio Jones didn't practice Wednesday, but is still expected to play in the big game Sunday.
Insight: He had seven receptions for 107 yards on eight targets last weekend without practice. He's likely to be conservative about practice this week too, so don't let this stop you from starting him against Carolina in Week 17.
 
12/21/2014 5:43:00 PM
Description: Falcons receiver Julio Jones looked completely healthy during Sunday's win against New Orleans.
Insight: He had seven receptions for 107 yards on eight targets, and simply did not look limited at all.
 
12/21/2014 11:22:00 AM
Description: Falcons receiver Julio Jones (hip/oblique) is expected to play Sunday, according to Chris Mortensen.
Insight: That still doesn't tell you if he'll be active in the offense or a decoy, but at least he will be out there in uniform. Harry Douglas and Roddy White get a reduction in their fantasy value, particularly Douglas.
 
12/19/2014 2:08:00 PM
Description: Falcons receiver Julio Jones (hip) did not practice on Friday and while he's still a game-time decision fantasy owners shouldn't expect him to play.
Insight: Have Harry Douglas and Roddy White ready to go.
 
12/17/2014 2:03:00 PM
Description: Falcons receiver Julio Jones (hip) did not practice on Wednesday.
Insight: It is too soon to tell if Jones will play. While head coach Mike Smith expects him back, we are not as sure. Stay tuned.
 
12/14/2014 11:06:00 AM
Description: Falcons receiver Julio Jones will not play against the Falcons due to his hip injury.
Insight: Jones suffered a hip pointer in the Monday night loss in Green Bay. That's too bad because Jones has gone for a career-high in yards each of the last two weeks and had a juicy matchup at home versus the Steelers. Harry Douglas has a huge bump in value this week and is a great play.
 
12/13/2014 10:52:00 AM
Description: Falcons receiver Julio Jones (hip) apparently "can barely run," according to D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Insight: Ledbetter added Jones will likely be a decoy if active, but also does not think he will suit up. No matter what, Jones looks to be far less than 100 percent, and even if he plays, we unfortunately have to recommend keeping him on the bench.
 
Hot12/11/2014 1:46:00 PM
Description: Falcons receiver Julio Jones missed Thursday's practice, but coach Mike Smith still said there is a good chance he would play Sunday.
Insight: Jones showed off his unbelievable talents, catching 11 of 17 targets for 259 yards and a touchdown last weekend, but injured his hip in the fourth quarter.
 
Hot12/9/2014 9:02:00 AM
Description: In front of a national audience, Falcons receiver Julio Jones showed off his unbelievable talents, catching 11 of 17 targets for 259 yards and a touchdown.
Insight: All-Pro Patrick Peterson couldn't stop Jones last weekend and the Packers had even less luck. He did leave in the fourth quarter with an apparent hip injury which will have fantasy owners concerned for Week 15.
 
Hot12/1/2014 10:02:00 AM
Description: Falcons receiver Julio Jones caught 10 of 12 targets for a career-high 189 yards and a touchdown.
Insight: Even All-Pro Patrick Peterson couldn't stop Jones.
 
11/23/2014 6:26:00 PM
Description: Falcons receiver Julio Jones scored his first touchdown in his last eight games.
Insight: It was the longest drought of his career. Jones finished the day with five catches for 68 yards.
 
11/23/2014 12:09:00 PM
Description: Falcons receiver Julio Jones (illness) has returned to practice Friday and so it's not a surprise that he's ready to go Sunday.
Insight: He still has a tough matchup, facing Pro Bowl cornerback in Joe Haden, so may not be a top play.
 
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).
