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. (August 17)

Falcons | Julio Jones' ankle injury not serious (Thu Aug 25, 10:06 PM) - 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.

Our View: Nothing to see here, move along. Jones will be fine by Week 1 and we expect him to put up solid WR1 numbers this season.

Falcons | Julio Jones injures ankle (Thu Aug 25, 09:05 PM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) is questionable to return against the Miami Dolphins Thursday, Aug. 25, after injuring his ankle.

Our View: They won't take any chances with Jones, even if it is the third preseason game. It's not as if they are unsure what he is capable of. Jones remains a WR1 for fantasy purposes and this ankle injury should amount to nothing.
