Summary

Julio Jones continued his historic career production in 2018 with his fifth season averaging at least 100 receiving yards per game and his eight touchdowns marked the second-most of his career. Jones and Mohamed Sanu formed a quality tandem for two years before the infusion of first-round pick Calvin Ridley into the mix as one of the strongest trios of receivers in the NFL. Jones' volume did not suffer with a hearty 170 last season as Atlanta's overall passing volume ballooned from their tepid marks in 2016-2017. Jones' durability has been a marvel, missing a mere two games over the past four seasons despite being managed on a snap-to-snap basis in-game and curtailed practices for years as a well-developed veteran.

Falcons | Julio Jones back at full speed (Tue Aug 13, 03:02 PM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) is reportedly back to running routes at full speed after spending most of the early part of training camp recovering from a foot injury, according to D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Our View: Jones is going to be good to go for Week 1 of the regular season. We are unlikely to see him in the preseason. Fantasy GMs know that Jones is a WR1 and are taking him off the board around WR4 (1.10) in 12-team PPR leagues.
