Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 2 vs OAK (5 / 5 / 106 / 1 rec)

The Raiders double covered Jones early in this game and it appeared after the first three drives that Jones wouldn't be an active part of the passing game. Things turned around fast when the Raiders let cornerback Sean Smith handle the Falcons' primary option one-on-one. Smith was so cautious about stopping Jones from winning the sideline that gave up too many plays to the inside. Ryan found Jones for a 21-yard score when allowed the inside on a slant to end the Falcons' fourth offensive series. He also beat Smith on a second slant for nine yards in the fourth quarter. Late, Smith gave up the inside on a deep cross and if it wasn't for Reggie Nelson recognizing at the last moment that Smith made a mental error, it's possible Jones catches the cross uncontested and scores. Instead, Nelson made the play on Jones and limited--yes, limited--Jones to a 48-yard completion. This put Atlanta in the red zone and set up the go-ahead score in a 21-21 game. Jones missed Atlanta's final drive with the Falcons up by 7 with a few minutes left and the Raiders still owning three time outs. He aggravated his ankle injury before the drive. Monitor this situation.

2016 Week 1 vs TB (8 / 4 / 66 / 1 rec)

His biggest play was a crossing route against a busted coverage that resulted in a catch and run for a touchdown up the right flat that cut the Tampa Bay lead to 10 points. Jones dropped a deep cross that hit him perfectly in the hands on a pass from the 40 after getting hit in the back. He was slow to get up and limped off the field after his left ankle got rolled up after he dropped the ball. Jones couldn't hang onto the crossing route that was thrown hard and behind him due to pressure on Ryan. He played the remainder of the game but was clearly hobbled.

Our View: Jones should play on Monday night against the Saints. He's his usual WR1 anytime he's on the field -- and especially this week against a weak Saints defense.

Falcons | Atlanta won't force the ball to Julio Jones (Sat Sep 24, 01:04 PM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones only has 13 targets through two games this season after recording 204 last year, and offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan doesn't appear interested in changing that approach anytime soon.

Our View: Six Falcons have four or more receptions through the first two games, while TE Jacob Tamme has two more catches and three more targets than Jones. Jones is still a WR1 for fantasy owners.
