Summary

Julio Jones enters the 2015 season as the unquestioned #1 wide receiver in the Falcons' stable of pass catchers. His impact on the team's offense was made clear during 2013 as the Falcons' passing attack struggled in Jones absence - (he was lost after week five, 2013 due to a fractured foot). Jones returned to health during 2014, finishing with career highs in targets (163), receptions (104) and yards (1,593) while hauling in six TDs over 15 games played. His best TD total to date came during 2012 (138 targets for 79/1198/10 receiving over 16 games). He is one of the dominant, young wide receivers in the NFL right now at 26 years of age. Roddy White's career is drawing to a close, and the Falcons' draftee at wide receiver this spring, Justin Hardy, is seen as a possession/move-the-sticks sort of short-to-intermediate route runner - he poses no foreseeable threat to Jones' continued status as the top wideout in Atlanta.

Falcons | Julio Jones receives extension (Sat Aug 29, 06:57 PM) - 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.

Our View: Jones has a slight advantage in average annual salary compared to the deals that Dez Bryant and Demaryius Thomas received earlier this year. Now that his contract situation is out of the way, Jones can go dominate on the field. We like him being moved around in the Kyle Shanahan offense, and Jones could push to be the no1 fantasy receiver in 2015.

Falcons | Atlanta still looking to sign Julio Jones (Mon Aug 24, 07:48 PM) - 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.

Our View: According to reports, Falcons 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. There is a roadmap for Jones in the form of the contracts that Dez Bryant and Demaryius Thomas received earlier this year.
