    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.

    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.

  • 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 ESPN.com'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.
