    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hamstring) was a limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 29.

    Huddle Up: The matchup against Carolina isn't ideal, but Jones remains a must-start player in all formats.

  • Posted: 9/28/2016 1:25pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Jones was held to one catch and 16 yards in Week 3 but should be more involved in the passing game in Week 4. Jones has been limited by the injury but should continue to a starting candidate in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 9/26/2016 9:19pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) was targeted six times in the Week 3 game against the New Orleans Saints Monday, Sept. 26, but he managed just one catch for 16 yards. That first reception did not come until the second half.

    Huddle Up: Jones has been dealing with a sore calf, and he had an ankle issue earlier in the season, too. Whenever he is active you have to have him in there, as this was an anomaly.

  • Posted: 9/26/2016 7:12pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) is active in Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints Monday, Sept. 26, but while the Falcons have seven different receivers with a catch, Jones has zero grabs.

    Huddle Up: Jones is killing his fantasy owners Monday, but there is still 30 minutes to go against a poor defense. If he is just being used as a decoy, and that certainly looks to be the case, not good.

  • Posted: 9/26/2016 4:16pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) is active against the New Orleans Saints Monday, Sept. 26.

    Huddle Up: It's not a big surprise as Jones had already said he'd play tonight. He has one of the best matchups of the week, at least on paper, against a depleted Saints secondary. What's also in his favor is that this matchup has shootout potential, featuring two of the best quarterbacks in the NFL so far this season. Another game with big numbers could be on the horizon if Jones can avoid aggravating the calf injury.

  • Posted: 9/24/2016 12:05pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) was limited during practice Saturday, Sept. 24, and is listed as questionable for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Jones has said he will play against the New Orleans Saints this week, but owners will need to continue to monitor the situation. Jones will come with some risk but should be a starting candidate in all leagues if he is active.

  • Posted: 9/24/2016 7:22am ET

    Atlanta Falcons head coach Dan Quinn said WR Julio Jones (calf) is expected to be available for Week 3's game against the New Orleans Saints, even though he missed practice Friday, Sept. 23.

    Huddle Up: The Falcons have a Monday night game versus New Orleans and owners should check to see if Jones practices Saturday, Sept. 24, to have a better idea of his status. DFS players should look for safer options this week due to the uncertainty surrounding the number of snaps he will see.

  • Posted: 9/23/2016 5:50pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 23.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to see if Jones will be able to practice Saturday, Sept. 24, to have a better idea on his status for Week 3. He should be a starter in all leagues if he is active, but owners should have another option ready in case he is ruled out.

  • Posted: 9/19/2016 11:05am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) has been diagnosed a calf strain, although it is not believed to be serious, according to ESPN's Vaughn McClure.

    Huddle Up: If there is any good news to come out of this, it may be that Jones didn't aggravate the ankle injury that has dogged him since late in the preseason. Jones is seemingly always battling through one lower-body injury or another, but he keeps showing up on game day. Anytime Jones is on the field, he is a WR1 in fantasy.

  • Posted: 9/19/2016 5:24am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (leg, ankle) missed the final drive of the Week 2 game with a leg injury that wasn't related to his previous left ankle injury, but the team expects him to be fine.

    Huddle Up: Jones has reached the end zone each week, but he has just nine catches for 172 yards, which is a little lackluster for him. He could unleash it in Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints, though, and he'll remain an elite WR1.

  • Posted: 9/16/2016 8:37pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones scored a 25-yard touchdown in Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers out of the no-huddle offense, and he said he likes the way offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan uses the no-huddle.

    Huddle Up: Jones is a must-start player in standard formats, but with Atlanta set to face an Oakland defense that was gashed through the air in Week 1, he could also make a strong building block in DFS games.

  • Posted: 9/16/2016 9:41am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) was a full participant in practice Friday, Sept. 16, and will play Week 2 against the Oakland Raiders Sunday, Sept. 18, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

    Huddle Up: Expect Jones to be nursed through practices most weeks, but all that matters is his production on game day. Lock Jones in as an elite wide receiver in all fantasy settings and start him confidently. Oakland surrendered 419 passing yards in Week 1, after all.

  • Posted: 9/15/2016 10:26am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) will be limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 15, according to head coach Dan Quinn. Quinn said Jones hopefully will be a full participant in practice Friday, Sept. 16.

    Huddle Up: Jones was limited last week but was able to play and likely will be on the field again in Week 2. He should still be a starting candidate in all leagues, but owners may want to lower their expectations a bit because of the injury.

  • Posted: 9/14/2016 9:51am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 14, according to head coach Dan Quinn. Quinn noted Jones should be a larger participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 15, though.

    Huddle Up: Jones seems to always be nursing minor ailments, but he usually shows up with a big stat line week in, week out. He's a slam-dunk No. 1 receiver as long as he's active, which doesn't appear to be in question leading into the Week 2 road date against the Oakland Raiders.

  • Posted: 9/11/2016 5:36pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) said after the Week 1 loss against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that he tweaked his left ankle. It was the same ankle he injured during a preseason game.

    Huddle Up: Jones will be evaluated and is worth watching heading into Week 2, obviously. However, it doesn't sound like too big of an injury, so fantasy owners should not be terribly concerned just yet.

  • Posted: 9/9/2016 12:28pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) is 'fully ready to go' in the team's season opener Sunday, September 11, against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

    Huddle Up: Jones got in a full practice on Thursday, so at that point, it looked like a certainty he would be suiting up for Week 1. Owners can now be at ease over their prized WR1, and should expect Jones to put up his usual top-flight numbers against a division opponent whom he usually pounces on.

  • Posted: 9/8/2016 4:06pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) was a full participant in practice Thursday, September 8.

    Huddle Up: This is an upgrade over Wednesday's showing, when the superstar wide-out was a limited participant. Regardless, he was shaping up to be in uniform for Week 1 anyway, and that should certainly be the case as it concerns fantasy lineups. Not only is Jones arguably the best in the game at his position, but he also has a salivating matchup lined up opposite the Bucs.

  • Posted: 9/8/2016 10:58am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) will be a full participant during practice Thursday, Sept. 8, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

    Huddle Up: Jones has dealt with the ankle injury over the past few weeks but appears to be ready for Week 1. He is one of the best fantasy receivers available and will be a starter in all fantasy leagues on a weekly basis.

  • Posted: 9/7/2016 1:27pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 7.

    Huddle Up: Jones was expected to fully participate in practice, but he should still have a good chance to play in Week 1. Owners need to keep an eye on the situation but should start Jones in all leagues if he is active for the game.

  • Posted: 8/29/2016 2:06pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) did not participate in practice Monday, Aug. 29, but should be able to practice Wednesday, Aug. 31, or Monday, Sept. 5, at the latest, according to head coach Dan Quinn. Jones is not expected to play in the final preseason game.

    Huddle Up: It appears like Jones will return to practice soon and is on track for the start of the regular season. He is one of the best receivers in the NFL and should be selected in the first or second round in all fantasy drafts.

  • Posted: 8/26/2016 2:55pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) likely will be limited during practice Sunday, Aug. 28, after suffering an ankle injury in the third preseason game, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

    Huddle Up: Jones appears to be fine after suffering the injury and likely will be limited for several days. He is one of the best receivers in the NFL and should be a first-round pick in most leagues.

  • Posted: 8/25/2016 7:06pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) will not return against the Miami Dolphins Thursday, Aug. 25, but head coach Dan Quinn said Jones could have returned if needed.

    Huddle Up: Jones avoided a serious injury, and he should continue to be selected early in the first round as one of the first receivers off the board.

  • Posted: 8/25/2016 6:05pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) is questionable to return against the Miami Dolphins Thursday, Aug. 25, after injuring his ankle.

    Huddle Up: Expect the Falcons to be cautious with their star receiver. It remains to be seen if the injury is serious, but if Jones has to miss any time, Mohamed Sanu should be the main beneficiary.

  • Posted: 7/31/2016 8:32pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) will return to full practice Tuesday, Aug. 2, head coach Dan Quinn said.

    Huddle Up: This could turn out to be nothing more than an early-camp bump in the road, but Jones has had foot issues before so his status definitely bears watching in August and beyond.

  • Posted: 7/29/2016 12:22pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (undisclosed) is sitting out of team drills Friday, July 29.

    Huddle Up: Not exactly good as Jones was supposed to be back on the field today after being unable to finish practice Thursday, but then it again it could simply be all precautionary. Stay tuned ...

  • Posted: 7/28/2016 7:59pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (undisclosed) will return to practice Friday, July 29, but head coach Dan Quinn would not disclose the nature of Jones' injury. 'He had a little tweak, so we just decided to hold (him). He'll likely be back in there for tomorrow. He could have gone back in today and was asking me to, but I decided not to.'

    Huddle Up: A slight early-camp scare for Jones' dynasty owners, but it obviously isn't much of a concern in Atlanta if the Falcons are going to let their best player take the field the next day.

  • Posted: 7/28/2016 1:58pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (undisclosed) left practice hobbled Thursday, July 28, and was flexing his legs on the sideline.

    Huddle Up: This probably will turn out to be nothing serious, but with one of the game's truly elite wideouts, anything and everything is going to be placed under the microscope.

  • Posted: 6/16/2016 12:56pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones is expected to see a lot more work down the field this season, as offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan anticipates taking more deep shots. The team added WR Mohamed Sanu, TE Austin Hooper and WR Justin Hardy continues to develop, and Shanahan is hopeful their addition will help keep added defensive attention off of Jones.

    Huddle Up: Jones finished with a career-high 1,871 yards last season, but his 13.8 yards per reception was a career-worst mark. Expect Jones' yards to fall off somewhat, but the more noticeable drop would come with his reception total -- he had a career-most 136 last year -- if more deep shots are truly in the offing.

  • Posted: 6/12/2016 10:03pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones scored 18 touchdowns on 133 catches through the first two seasons of his career, and over the past three years, he has caught just 16 touchdowns on 281 receptions.

    Huddle Up: A few more scoring grabs would put Jones in the best-WR-in-the-game conversation, but regardless, he's a sure-fire WR1 given his usage and featured role in the Falcons' offense.

  • Posted: 12/29/2015 3:54pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones has four games with at least 160 receiving yards this season. He needs one more such game to tie the record of five games with at least 160 yards held by Roy Green.

    Huddle Up: Jones is enjoying by far the best season of his career and is pacing the league in targets (192), receptions (127) and yards (1,722) entering Week 17. He's also two points in back of Antonio Brown for the WR fantasy-points lead.

  • Posted: 12/7/2015 7:56pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones, who had eight catches for 93 yards on the season in the Week 13 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, failed to catch a touchdown for the fourth straight game. Jones seems frustrated with his red-zone role despite passing the 100-catch mark on the season. 'I don't know what we're getting down there. I don't know what the thinking is as far as if we're going to throw the jump balls or if we're going to run the ball or whatever look we're getting down there. We practice throughout the week throwing jump balls, throwing fades, throwing all these little things. But when the game comes, you never know what's going to come up,' Jones said. The Falcons went 1-for-3 in their red zone trips against Tampa Bay, and Jones was targeted four times in the red zone with two catches. However, he wasn't thrown to at all in five goal-to-go situations.

    Huddle Up: It's all about the TDs as well for Jones' fantasy owners, and the WR only has delivered two scoring grabs on 68 total receptions over the last nine games.

  • Posted: 11/17/2015 8:27pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones, who has 80 catches and is averaging a league-best 114.3 receiving yards per game, could draw Indianapolis Colts CB Vontae Davis in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Even with the Falcons just coming off their bye, Jones ranks second among all fantasy WRs with 139 points, but his second-half schedule is far from ideal, starting with Davis and continuing with the Panthers stud CB Josh Norman (twice) and the Vikings' stout secondary. Jones is a possible sell-high candidate if you can get a potent package in return.

  • Posted: 10/19/2015 12:57pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hamstring) didn't have any setbacks in the Week 6 game and looks healthy moving forward, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

    Huddle Up: Jones has been hampered by a few minor injuries but his lower production lately has more to do with the emergence of Devonta Freeman. Jones remains a Top 3 fantasy WR.

  • Posted: 10/14/2015 4:25pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hamstring, toe) will play in Week 6 Thursday, Oct. 15, against the New Orleans Saints. However, the team will monitor his 'pitch count,' according to a source.

    Huddle Up: After opening the season with 34 catches for 440 yards and four TDs in his first three games, Jones definitely has appeared limited in the last two games with nine receptions for 105 yards and no scores, and the quick turnaround this week definitely hasn't helped. You're still starting Jones any time he's active, but temper your fantasy expectations Thursday night.

  • Posted: 10/13/2015 9:13am ET

    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...

  • Posted: 10/12/2015 10:15pm ET

    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.
