Summary

Julio Jones continued his dominant streak of production, now four years running, with more than 1,400 yards in 2017. Jones is one of the elite physical specimens in the NFL at receiver, capable of breaking for a long touchdown on any reception. While Jones did not miss a game in 2017, he has been managed with in-game rest and limited weekly practices more in recent seasons. Jones' lone flaw over his career has been his lack of touchdown production considering his volume and yardage totals. Jones' three scores in 2017 and surpassing eight touchdowns in a season just once in his seven-year career. Only Antonio Brown of the high-volume NFL receivers had a higher overall success rate than Julio Jones in 2017. (June 3)

Falcons | Atlanta, Julio Jones to talk next offseason (Thu Jul 19, 04:14 PM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones will not receive a new deal at this point, but the Falcons have told Jones that they will work on his contract situation next offseason, according to a source.

Our View: That doesn't mean they'll do anything for him, but it might be enough to get him into camp, ego intact. Jones just had his fourth season in a row with more than 80 catches and 1,400 yards. His touchdown total has dropped steadily since 2015 but despite that, Jones continues to deserve his receiver ADP of No. 4. The lack of scores does explain his overall ADP of 13, however.

Falcons | Julio Jones won't get new contract (Thu Jul 19, 01:30 AM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones was recently informed that the team had not budgeted to renegotiate Jones' contract in 2018 and have no plan to give him a raise for the upcoming season, according to The Athletic's Jeff Schultz. The Falcons did promise to renegotiate after the season, however, and hope that Jones will report to training camp on time.

Our View: He still has time left on his contract, but has gone from the highest paid receiver to the eighth highest, so we understand his beef. That said, the team is already paying him a lot. we don't think he will hold out, but it bears watching. Jones just had his fourth season in a row where he logged more than 80 catches and 1,400 yards. If there is a hesitation around Jones, it's his decreasing touchdown total, which has dropped steadily since 2015. For a receiver with high numbers otherwise, it's a shocking stat. Despite that, Jones continues to be a top fantasy receiver, and is worthy of his No. 4 ADP as a receiver, though the lack of touchdowns might explain his overall ADP of 13.

Falcons | Julio Jones attends Matt Ryan's passing camp (Tue Jul 17, 02:33 AM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones attended QB Matt Ryan's annual offseason passing camp, per a Snapchat post by WR Calvin Ridley, who was also on hand. The other players that were in attendance included TEs Austin Hooper, Eric Saubert, WRs Justin Hardy, Mohamed Sanu, Marvin Hall, Russell Gage Jr. and Reggie Davis. Jones didn't attend the team's offseason program or mandatory minicamp and it's unknown if he'll be at training camp, which begins on Thursday, July 26.

Our View: Looking for a correction or 'update' to his contract, Jones has skipped voluntary workouts for the Falcons this offseason and he also stayed away from mandatory minicamp. Ryan's camp is informal and Jones was always expected to show up for the work. With a cap hit of $12.9 million in 2018, we'll see if the Falcons oblige the superstar receiver with a new deal even though he's still got three years remaining on his contract.
