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 | Six receptions for Julio Jones (Sun Nov 17, 04:34 PM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones caught six passes for 91 yards against the Carolina Panthers in Week 11. He was targeted eight times during the game.

Our View: Jones was banged up at times, but stayed out on the field. The Falcons offense is coming alive and Jones should be in line for one of his best performances of the season against the reeling Bucs secondary.

Falcons | Julio Jones finishes with 79 yards (Sun Nov 10, 04:37 PM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones caught three passes for 79 yards against the New Orleans Saints in Week 10. He was targeted nine times during the game.

Our View: Jones beat Marshon Lattimore on one big play, but also took a big hit from him on another play. A more balanced offense took away his ceiling, but at least his team has some momentum heading into a matchup with Carolina.
