    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hamstring, toe) is uncertain to play Thursday, Oct. 15, against the New Orleans Saints in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Jones appeared limited in Atlanta's Week 5 game, but the Falcons found enough other weapons to keep their perfect record intact. If Jones can't go, look for Roddy White to regain fantasy value. Leonard Hankerson could also be a bigger helper if his rib injury isn't limiting him. Jacob Tamme saw a ginormous uptick in targets last week, so Matt Ryan may go back to him as well. And then, of course, there's Devonta Freeman...

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hamstring, toe) did not participate in practice Monday, Oct. 12.

    Huddle Up: Jones has missed most of the Falcons' practices the last two weeks while playing limited in two games, and the short week leading into Thursday night's game in New Orleans will present an extra challenge. Monitor his status closely the next few days.

  • Posted: 10/10/2015 12:37pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe, hamstring) is expected to play in the Week 5 game against the Washington Redskins even though he is listed as questionable for the game.

    Huddle Up: Jones' status wasn't really in doubt and reports said he's running fine in practice. Jones is locked in as fantasy football's top WR this week.

  • Posted: 10/9/2015 3:47pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones, who leads the NFL with 38 catches and 478 yards through four games, has been moved around on the field more often this year, making it tough for opposing defenses to keep track of where he is. Offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan's misdirection offense also helps Jones get open more often. Jones' ability to run different routes from different positions on the field also makes him tougher to defend.

    Huddle Up: Jones had a stunningly quiet outing (4-38) in the Week 4 rout of the Texans, but that likely means he's due for an explosion Sunday against Washington which comes in allowing the 10th most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers.

  • Posted: 10/1/2015 4:47pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones isn't dealing with turf toe, according to head coach Dan Quinn. Quinn said Jones will be 'ready to rock' in Week 4 against the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: Jones has been fantasy's MVP through the first three weeks, and while he's been limited during practices, he's clearly shown no signs of health issues during games. And that might be the best hope right now for opposing defenses.

  • Posted: 9/16/2015 11:41pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 16, and there is a good chance he could rest the remainder of the week. However, he is still expected to be ready for the Week 2 game against the New York Giants.

    Huddle Up: Jones isn't expected to be in any danger of missing Sunday's game but this is still a situation to monitor. Jones is a Top 3 WR as long as he's active.

  • Posted: 9/16/2015 6:27pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (leg) is feeling sore due to playing on turf in Week 1, according to's Vaughn McClure. Jones is not practicing Wednesday, Sept. 16.

    Huddle Up: Sounds like nothing more than a deserved break for one of the true fantasy studs of Week 1. Expect him back on the practice field Thursday and near the top of the Week 2 WR fantasy rankings in all formats.

  • Posted: 8/29/2015 7:21pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones agreed to terms with the team Saturday, Aug. 29, on a five-year contract extension worth $71.25 million, according to a source. The deal includes $47 million in guaranteed money.

    Huddle Up: Jones' new contract now makes him the highest paid receiver in the NFL, putting him slightly ahead of Dez Bryant and Demaryius Thomas. Jones can now focus all of his attention on football. He's getting Top 10 consideration in a majority of fantasy drafts this year.

  • Posted: 8/24/2015 11:03pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones is still talking with the team about a contract extension, but the talks stalled significantly last week, according to sources. Owner Arthur Blank said he is still optimistic that the two sides can reach an agreement. Jones is willing to play for $10.176 million this season if no agreement is reached.

    Huddle Up: Jones and his agent no doubt are trying to top the 5-year, $70 million deals that fellow No. 1 WRs Dez Bryant and Demaryius Thomas received last month, but the Falcons of course, aren't simply to going to give in too soon with the franchise-tag leverage on their side. New deal or not, though, Jones remains a no-doubt WR1 in all fantasy formats.

  • Posted: 8/9/2015 4:39pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones is in the middle of contract extension talks with the team, and owner Arthur Blank said he wants Jones to remain for the team for the rest of his career. Blank said there is no timetable for the deal to be completed.

    Huddle Up: Jones has been hampered by injuries in two of his first four seasons, but in the two "healthy" ones, he's averaged a rather impressive 91.5-1,395.5-8 stat line and could be poised for even bigger and better things -- if he avoids the injury bug, of course -- as running mate Roddy White continues to be slowed by advancing age.

  • Posted: 8/3/2015 11:42pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones said Monday, Aug. 3, his agent and the team have been discussing a contract extension, but he didn't have an update. 'I don't know,' Jones said. 'Seriously, I don'ít know where it's at. I don¬'t know when it's going to be done. I don'ít know if there's a deadline. I don't know what's going on. I'm just here, playing ball,' said Jones.

    Huddle Up: The Falcons always have the franchise tag to fall back on next season if they can't get a deal done with the fifth-year stud WR. In the meantime, fantasy GMs aren't exactly worried as Jones is the fourth WR coming off the board in standard-scoring leagues with an ADP of 14.5.

  • Posted: 7/16/2015 1:47pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones and the Falcons could begin discussions on a long-term deal in the near future now that Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant and Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas have agreed to long-term extensions. As reported earlier, Jones could receive a new deal before training camp begins Friday, July 31.

    Huddle Up: The Bryant and Thomas deals have set the elite-WR market, and if both sides are in the neighborhood, look for the Falcons and Jones to avoid the deadline drama next summer and get a long-term deal done.

  • Posted: 7/14/2015 4:51pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones and the Falcons have not had talks regarding a contract extension, according to a source. Atlanta exercised the fifth-year option on Jones' original deal, so he will be in the final year of his contract. Jones has already said he will not hold out and the Falcons have expressed their interested in signing him to a long-term deal.

    Huddle Up: Jones is year behind Demaryius Thomas and Dez Bryant is this regard, so don't look for any contract unrest until next offseason at the earliest if he doesn't get an extension before this season.

  • Posted: 6/17/2015 10:54pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones said Wednesday, June 17, that he is not going to hold out for a new contract this offseason.

    Huddle Up: So we won't have to worry about Jones' availability for the start of the season the way we do Dez Bryant; good news for Jones' fantasy owners and those looking to add him to their roster.

  • Posted: 5/5/2015 4:20pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones has not had any contract-extension talks with the team at this time, but general manager Thomas Dimitroff said extending Jones is one of the team's priorities.

    Huddle Up: Jones has logged 278 catches for 4,330 yards and 26 TDs in four seasons and is coming off a career-best 104-1,593-6 campaign a year ago. Jones will earn a $10.2 base salary under the fifth-year option on his rookie contract, but don't be surprised if a new deal is in place before training camp, making Jones one of the league's highest-paid WRs.

  • Posted: 2/5/2015 3:53pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones is likely to stick around with the team long term, as new head coach Dan Quinn indicated in his introductory press conference that Jones is an asset he'd like to keep around. Jones is entering the last year of his contract in which he'll make $10.176 million. It will be Quinn's decision as to whether to extend Jones' contract. 'For me, just to have the chance to start the process with him, I can't wait. We love great players, and we want to celebrate all the good guys that we have. We're trying to collect more great players, not the other way around,' Quinn said.

    Huddle Up: Jones is coming off a career year in which he caught 104 of his 163 targets for 1,593 yards and six TDs, and definitely expect the Falcons to keep him around given that fellow wideout Roddy White isn't getting any younger and they're still lacking a play-making TE.

  • Posted: 12/26/2014 3:11pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (oblique) is participating in practice Friday, Dec. 26. His is listed as questionable.

    Huddle Up: Jones, coming off a 7-catch, 107-yard outing on 8 targets in Week 16, looks good to go for Sunday's showdown against the Panthers, but definitely check in with the The Huddle's Game-Day Inactives, Injury and Weather report before kickoff just in case.

  • Posted: 12/25/2014 6:58pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (oblique) is expected to play in Week 17 even though he missed practice Thursday, Dec. 25, according to head coach Mike Smith.

    Huddle Up: It's all able hands on deck for the Falcons in a do-or-die showdown against the Panthers. And that most certainly includes Jones, who looked somewhat better than expected in catching seven passes for 107 yards in his return from a Week 15 absence.

  • Posted: 12/20/2014 1:09pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones' (hip) availability for Week 16 will be determined by his pregame workout, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: One report says Jones will definitely play and another suggests it will depend how he looks in pre-game workouts. The bottom line is Jones is going to be a game-time decision and owners likely won't know his status until Sunday morning. If Jones plays, owners should roll with him for Fantasy Super Bowls.

  • Posted: 12/19/2014 3:52pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) missed another day of practice Friday, Dec. 19, and is listed as questionable for Week 16 against the New Orleans Saints. Jones will be a game-time decision, and he will test his hip Saturday, Dec. 20, before the team leaves town.

    Huddle Up: Jones' owners should be familiar with the drill after last week and hopefully still have Harry Douglas or another backup option at the ready.

  • Posted: 12/17/2014 4:33pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) is not participating in the portion of practice open to the media Wednesday, Dec. 17.

    Huddle Up: Falcons coach Mike Smith is getting fed up with the constant questions about Jones, saying Wednesday that the pre-game active/inactive list will do his talking. In the meantime, it's an elimination game for the Falcons on Sunday so expect every effort to be made to have Jones ready, and that likely includes holding him out of early-week practices.

  • Posted: 12/16/2014 11:46pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) is expected to be ready to play in Week 16 against the New Orleans Saints. However, offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter indicated the possibility exists that Jones could sit for a second straight game. 'It's hard when you don't know for sure if a guy is going to play no matter if it's Julio or not Julio,' Koetter said Tuesday, Dec. 16. 'We kind of have to have a contingency both ways. We have some 'what if Julio plays' and some 'what if Julio does not play.' We have both. That's one of the hardest things about not knowing if one of your best guys is going to go.'

    Huddle Up: Those Jones owners who survived without the big-play wideout Sunday will have to see how he progresses throughout the week, and it very likely could come down to another game-time decision next Sunday.

  • Posted: 12/15/2014 3:14pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) is expected to be ready to play in Week 16, according to head coach Mike Smith.

    Huddle Up: Fantasy owners shouldn't count their chickens just yet. Smith has mislead us before when it comes to injury information. Harry Douglas is still firmly on the fantasy radar until it's confirmed Jones will start.

  • Posted: 12/13/2014 5:55pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) can barely run and would be used as a decoy if plays Sunday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: Jones is sounding like he's a non-start this week despite a favorable matchup against a weak Steelers secondary. Unfortunately for fantasy owners still in the playoffs, the injury comes at a terrible time but Jones simply can't be trusted even if he's in the starting lineup. He would be a risky start for owners who have other viable options available.

  • Posted: 12/12/2014 2:32pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) is questionable for the team's Week 15 game. Jones did not practice Friday, Dec. 12.

    Huddle Up: Jones remains a game-time decision, and we'd definitely be feeling better about his prospects if he had been able to do a least a little something Friday. Jones owners should definitely have their backup plans in order, and Harry Douglas certainly isn't a bad option.

  • Posted: 12/11/2014 2:47pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) didn't practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 11 and will be a game-time decision for Week 15, according to head coach Mike Smith.

    Huddle Up: At least it's an early kickoff for Jones' fantasy owners, who hopefully were able to pick up Harry Douglas just in case.

  • Posted: 12/10/2014 4:04pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 10.

    Huddle Up: No real surprise as the team's first practice of the week comes only 2 days after Jones was hurt Monday night, and coach Mike Smith said Wednesday that he's hopeful the WR will be able to play against the Steelers. Definitely stay tuned ...

  • Posted: 12/9/2014 7:57pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones could still play this week after suffering a hip injury late in Monday night's game against the Green Bay Packers. Head coach Mike Smith said he's hopeful that Jones will be able to play, but added that how much practice time Jones gets this week remains to be seen.

    Huddle Up: Being without Jones this week would be a crushing blow to many fantasy owners who have ridden his spectacular 21-448-2 showing over the last 2 weeks. Stay tuned ...

  • Posted: 12/9/2014 12:18am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) left early in the fourth quarter and didn't return after suffering a hip injury Monday, Dec. 8.

    Huddle Up: Jones' fantasy owners are hoping it's a strain more than anything as their man came through with a career game for the second straight week, hauling in 11 of his game-high 17 targets for an Atlanta single-game record 259 yards and a TD in the Falcons' 43-37 loss. Working against Jones, of course, will be the short week leading into Sunday's game with the Steelers, and we'll have to stay on top of practice reports coming out of Georgia in a few days.

  • Posted: 11/21/2014 6:21pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (illness) fully participated in practice, Friday, Nov. 21, and is probable for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Jones was back after a two-day battle with a nasty bug and should be good to go Sunday against the Browns.

  • Posted: 11/20/2014 3:48pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (illness) is not participating in practice Thursday, Nov. 20. It appears like Jones will still be ready for the team's Week 12 game.

    Huddle Up: Sounds like a bug is making the rounds in Atlanta, but go ahead and count on having Jones available Sunday, especially if he can return to practice Friday.

  • Posted: 11/19/2014 6:10pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (illness) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 19.

    Huddle Up: Sounds like nothing to really worry about right now, and if so, he'll be back in practice Thursday or Friday at the latest.

  • Posted: 10/22/2014 6:18pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones said he should be blamed for the team's offensive struggles, because he needs to make plays when given the chance. 'It starts with me,' Jones said. 'I got to go out there and make plays when they are presented to me. I got to go out there and catch the ball, be more of a deep threat. ... We are out there misreading or dropping balls. We have to fix that. It's nothing that the defense is doing, we have to fix that here.'

    Huddle Up: Jones has been targeted 44 times over the last 4 games but has a modest 26 catches for 311 yards and no scores following a blazing 23-365-3 start in Weeks 1-3. He remains a WR1, but he's certainly overdue for a big game.

  • Posted: 10/17/2014 2:19pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 17, and is probable for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Jones will be out there Sunday without out much limitation against the Ravens, and his fantasy owners will be hoping to see him in the end zone for the first time since Week 3.
