He’s a true volume dominator. Jones remains the absolute and unquestioned face of the Falcons passing game, and there’s no close second. With mere complementary types behind him in the pecking order and no offseason acquisitions of note, Jones projects for another run at 100 receptions, assuming a 16-game season.
He’s simply tremendous. Jones is a world-class receiver and a Hall of Fame-caliber downfield threat. He turns major volume into major yardage, and he’s barely 28 years old. Barring injury, there’s no realistic scenario in which his usage or efficiency drops off within the next few years.
The Falcons offense, often at least solid, was nothing short of sparkling in 2016. This offense is fresh off of leading the league in yards per play, net yards per pass attempt, and percentage of scoring drives – as well as tying for eighth all-time in scoring.
