Summary

Julio Jones enters the 2014 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 had over 100 yards in three of the five games he appeared in last season, and 99 yards receiving in a fourth, before going down to the foot injury (the second time he's broken the foot in the same place). During the first five games of the season - with Jones in the lineup - Ryan threw for over 300 yards three times, over 400 yards once, and he connected for two TDs per game (10 over the first five contests) with just three total interceptions during that span of time. Assuming Jones has fully recovered from his foot injury, he should have no problem returning to or surpassing the level we saw from him 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 25 years of age. With legendary tight end Tony Gonzalez now in retirement, Jones and his compatriots at wide receiver - Roddy White and Harry Douglas - are likely to see even more opportunities to catch the football during the upcoming NFL season as the wide receivers will inherit some of the 120-130 targets and 80-90 receptions that Gonzalez handled annually while with the Falcons..

Falcons | Julio Jones feeling 100 percent (Fri Aug 15, 01:15 PM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot), who expects to play in the team's preseason game against the Houston Texans Saturday, Aug. 16, said he is feeling 100 percent healthy. Jones fractured his right foot Oct. 7 of last season. The Falcons plan to be cautious with him in the preseason, and he's likely to play just one series Saturday. Jones didn't play in last week's game and has been on a practice schedule of one day on and one day off.

Falcons | Julio Jones expects to play Saturday (Thu Aug 14, 10:53 PM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) expects to play in the team's preseason game Saturday, Aug. 16.

Our View: If you're at all worried about Jones' surgically-repaired and twice-broken foot, the Falcons' willingness to play him in the preseason should dispel those concerns. He's worth consideration in the late first in PPR leagues.

Falcons | Julio Jones sitting out (Thu Aug 14, 11:09 AM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) is not participating in practice Thursday, Aug. 14. Jones has been practicing every other day because of his foot injury.

Our View: There have been no signs yet that Jones will be hampered by his twice-broken foot. As of right now, you should draft him as if he'll be 100% to open this season.

Falcons | Julio Jones resting (Tue Aug 12, 09:33 AM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones is resting Tuesday, Aug. 12.

Our View: Totally normal as part of the process of getting back to full speed in a safe and deliberate way. Every report out of Atlanta has Jones looking like his old self and ready to pick up where he left off last year, when he was the #1 PPR wide receiver through five games.
