Summary

Julio Jones is in the prime years of his NFL career, seeing a ridiculous 203 targets for 136/1,871/8 receiving last season as the clear-cut #1 wide receiver during the first year Atlanta ran Kyle Shanahan's offensive system, which emphasizes the #1 wide receiver - as the system will be run in Atlanta again this year, there is no reason to expect a sudden drop-off for Jones. He could surpass his career-best, second-ranked-fantasy-wideout numbers from 2015 during the coming season. Matt Ryan is on record that he feels much more comfortable in the offense now that he has executed the system for a season - the needle may well be pointing up for Jones even given his 1,871 yards receiving from last season. Jones is just 27 years old and has missed just one game over the last two seasons. He seems set to dominate the opposition again during 2016. (May 19)

Falcons | More deep balls for Julio Jones? (Wed Jun 15, 10:08 PM) - 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.

Our View: We like the sound of that! Jones is without a doubt one of the premiere receivers in the NFL and is just as good in fantasy, where we have him as an easy WR1.

Falcons | Fewer touchdowns recently for Julio Jones (Sun Jun 12, 08:43 AM) - 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.

Our View: Touchdowns can come and go, but Jones was the No.2 fantasy WR last year with 136 catches, 1,871 yards and eight TDs. This season, we could see Jones put up a similar stat line...and perhaps he'll hit double-digit TDs in 2016. Either way, he's a damn good fantasy asset to add once again. His current ADP is WR2 (1.03) in 12-team PPR leagues.
