Julio Jones caught 9-of-11 targets for 161 yards and two touchdowns in the Falcons' Week 3 humiliation of the Bucs.
Spending most of the game lining up opposite RCB Johnthan Banks, Jones found every inch of space in the Bucs' zone coverage, racking up the second most yards of his regular-season career in just two and a half quarters. The Falcons pulled their starters up 49-0 midway through the third quarter. Jones' second touchdown, a 40-yarder, was perhaps the best catch by any player this season. Reeling in an over-the-shoulder pass, Jones showed ridiculous body control and awareness as he caught the ball going to the ground in the end zone. One of the very best players in the NFL, Jones heads into the Falcons' Week 4 trip to Minnesota with 23 catches for 365 yards and three touchdowns. He has at least seven grabs in all three games.

Date:

Julio Jones (ankle) is listed as probable for Thursday night's Week 3 game against the Bucs.

Jones practiced each day this week and will be ready to fire up as a WR1. Roddy White (questionable) is also expected to play in the NFC South tilt.

Julio Jones (ankle) is practicing Tuesday.

He was officially "full." Jones does not appear to be in any danger of missing Thursday's tasty matchup with the Bucs. He'll get a little boost if Roddy White (hamstring) is forced to sit.
Sep 16 - 1:23 PM

Julio Jones (ankle) was limited in Monday's practice.

Julio limped off the field late in the Falcons' loss to the Bengals on Sunday. He returned moments later and should be fine for Thursday night's matchup with the Bucs. The Tampa defense has struggled with the Panthers and Rams to start the season. Jones is a locked-in top-five fantasy receiver.
Sep 15 - 9:19 PM

Julio Jones caught 7-of-13 targets for 88 yards and a touchdown in the Falcons' Week 2 loss to the Bengals.

Owners got a scare late in the fourth quarter of a game that wasn't close, as Jones limped off the field with a left-leg issue. Thankfully, he was able to return moments later. It's worth mentioning that's the foot Jones has broken twice, however. Regardless, it shouldn't be an issue for Week 3. Jones and the Falcons are hosting the Bucs for Thursday Night Football.
Sep 14 - 4:57 PM

Julio Jones caught seven passes for 116 yards in the Falcons' opening day win.

The Saints bracketed Jones with Patrick Robinson and Jarius Byrd most of the day, but he still managed to hang 116 on the New Orleans' defense. Jones was explosive in the open field, and looked just like the player that averaged 13.7 fantasy points a game before getting hurt last year. If he can stay on the field, Jones will be a top-end WR1 this season.
Sep 7 - 5:41 PM

Speaking Thursday, Julio Jones (foot) said he has "no restrictions."

"I'm definitely to the point where I'm not thinking about my foot," Jones said. Although he's been hesitant to call himself 100 percent, visual evidence has suggested otherwise for weeks now. Jones will bring No. 1 fantasy wideout ability into Sunday's home game against the Saints.
Sep 4 - 11:38 AM

Julio Jones (foot) said he "probably could give you 65 plays or so" right now.

Jones has looked truly 100 percent every time we've laid eyes on him, with coaches and the media making the same observation. But he'll only say he's "almost back to the old Julio." As for the 65 plays comment, that's a full game. We suspect Julio will quickly regain his full confidence once he plays every snap against the Saints in Week 1.
Aug 31 - 10:33 AM

Julio Jones caught two passes for 63 yards with a touchdown in Saturday's preseason game against the Titans.

Jones' foot was a non-issue, just as it's been all preseason. His touchdown grab was of the highlight-reel variety, as he shrugged off a two-handed tackle of Coty Sensabaugh on a simple slant and outran the defense 52 yards to the house. It's the latest example of Jones' freakish size/speed/power combo. In two preseason appearances, he has four catches for 83 yards with a touchdown and will be a full-go for Week 1. Jones, dripping with No. 1 overall wideout talent on a pass-first team, is a fine pick at the top of the second round in fantasy.
Aug 23 - 9:44 PM

Julio Jones (foot) is "set to return to a normal practice routine."

Jones has been limited throughout camp as the Falcons baby his surgically-repaired foot, but coach Mike Smith is ready to remove the reins. Jones made his preseason debut last Saturday, catching two passes for 20 yards. Appearing all-systems-go, Jones is ready to rock as an elite WR1. He's going to practice every day now.

Julio Jones caught two passes for 20 yards in the Falcons' second preseason game on Saturday night, his first game action since breaking his foot last October.

Jones was targeted a team-high four times by Matt Ryan with the first-team offense. The reports on Julio have been extremely positive all summer, and he showed no signs of discomfort Saturday night. The Falcons will continue to give Jones off days for the remainder of the preseason. He'll be all systems go for Week 1. While there is definite risk, we're comfortable with placing Jones in the top five at receiver in fantasy. He could challenge for the No. 1 overall spot.
Aug 16 - 9:25 PM

Julio Jones (foot) expects to suit up for Atlanta's second preseason game on Saturday.

Jones told ESPN's Stephania Bell he should see around a series of action. It's a huge step in the right direction for a player who has seen limited camp reps, but has lit things up when he does take the field. Jones has nothing to prove in preseason, but some live action should build confidence in his twice surgically-repaired foot.
Aug 14 - 6:51 PM

Julio Jones (foot) is sitting out Atlanta's preseason opener.

It's planned rest. The Falcons have limited Jones' camp reps, though he's still practiced plenty with the first-team offense. Julio remains a major injury risk, but offers No. 1 overall fantasy wideout upside with Tony Gonzalez's 120 targets gone and a porous defense Atlanta's offense will have to compensate for.
Aug 8 - 6:20 PM

Julio Jones (foot surgery) has been practicing every other day since the beginning of camp.

The limited practice regimen is a precautionary tactic the Falcons have installed for Jones. So far, so good. Jones said he feels 100 percent and added that he's gained 10 pounds of muscle without losing speed. "I think he's handled everything that we've asked him to do up to this point in time," coach Mike Smith said. "He hasn't missed any of the snaps that we've talked about him taking."

Julio Jones will wear a custom-made shoe to protect his surgically-repaired foot this season.

"They made it wider," Jones said of his shoe company. "There’s a steel shank (at) the bottom, as well. They made a great cleat for me." Although it's doubtful a shoe could make that much of a difference with Jones' twice-broken foot, it likely couldn't hurt, either. Alternating practice days, Jones has been lighting up Falcons camp. He's Rotoworld's No. 4 overall receiver.
