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 | Julio Jones will be fully back soon (Fri Jul 29, 03:57 PM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (undisclosed) will be a full participant in practice 'in the next day or so,' according to head coach Dan Quinn. Quinn decided to sit Jones out during team drills Friday, July 29.

Our View: This matches the earlier reports to not be worried about Jones leaving practice earlier this week. As long as whatever this is/was doesn't recur, we won't be moving Jones from the top 3 of our wide receiver board and top 5 of our overall board.

Falcons | Julio Jones out of team drills (Fri Jul 29, 10:55 AM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (undisclosed) is sitting out of team drills Friday, July 29.

Our View: All signs point to this being a minor injury, but teams don't have to tell us the truth about injuries. As long as Jones is back in a matter of days, not weeks, there's no reason to move him down on your draft board.

Falcons | Julio Jones will practice Friday (Thu Jul 28, 03:19 PM) - Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (undisclosed) will return to practice Friday, July 29, but head coach Dan Quinn would not disclose the nature of Jones' injury.

Our View: We still expect him to be a solid WR1, but would love a little more info on the issue. Until we get it, we have to just keep the upside in mind and see what he does in practices in the coming weeks.

Falcons | Julio Jones limps off (Thu Jul 28, 11:04 AM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (undisclosed) left practice hobbled Thursday, July 28, and is flexing his legs on the sideline.

Our View: Well, let's not fire up the Apocalypse Alarm yet. It doesn't look serious right now and there is a long way to go before Week 1. We still expect him to be a great WR1 option for Fantasy GMs.
