Date:

Falcons coach Dan Quinn said Monday he is not satisfied with Julio Jones' usage to this point in the season.

"No," said Quinn when asked if he's satisfied with how often Julio is getting the ball. "No, I'm not." Jones has topped 70 yards in three of his last four games, but he has one red-zone target and zero touchdowns on the year. He whipped Dolphins CB Xavien Howard badly on Sunday, yet was only targeted seven times. Jones draws another favorable matchup this week against the Patriots.
Oct 16 - 3:51 PM

Julio Jones played 45-of-57 offensive snaps Sunday in the Falcons' loss to the Dolphins.

That's a 78.9 percent snap rate, which is about normal for Julio. Jones finished with a respectable 72 yards in the loss but still saw a concerning lack of targets (just seven) while extending his touchdown drought to five games (six if you include the postseason). The hip flexor injury that sidelined Jones for much of Week 4 is no longer a concern, but the slumping Falcons need to do a much better job of getting their All-Pro receiver involved.
Oct 16 - 10:04 AM

Julio Jones caught 6-of-7 targets for 72 yards in the Falcons' Week 6 loss to the Dolphins.

Jones is now scoreless through the Falcons' first five games. The seven targets were a major disappointment on an afternoon where Mohamed Sanu (hamstring) was inactive. Jones wasn't even on the field for a critical third down in the second half. Thankfully, Jones couldn't have a better slump-busting matchup for Week 7 in the Patriots.
Oct 15 - 3:59 PM

Julio Jones (hip) is active for Week 6 against the Dolphins.

As is K Matt Bryant (back). Jones is a top-two play for Week 6. Inactive for the Falcons are WR Mohamed Sanu, WR Nick Williams, CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson, LB Jermaine Grace, OT Sean Harlow, OT Austin Pasztor and LB Courtney Upshaw.
Oct 15 - 11:31 AM

Falcons coach Dan Quinn confirmed Julio Jones (hip) will play against the Dolphins in Week 6.

He exited Week 4 with a hip flexor injury but had the bye week to rest up. Jones wasn't even listed on the final injury report. He'll be in a great spot Sunday at home against a non-threatening Dolphins' secondary. Mohamed Sanu's absence is also a plus for Julio.
Oct 13 - 1:58 PM

Julio Jones (hip) has declared himself ready to go for Week 6.

Jones was limited in Wednesday and Thursday's practices. "I feel great,'' Jones said Thursday. "We just have a plan here. I've been doing it the whole year. So, limited means really nothing. I'll be ready to go." The Dolphins are a golden matchup for Jones, who has yet to find the end zone this season.

Julio Jones (hip) was limited during Thursday's practice.

Jones was limited on Wednesday as well. The Falcons are likely just taking it slow with their star receiver in practice, and there does not seem to be any concern about his availability against the Dolphins. Jones should be locked into fantasy lineups.
Oct 12 - 12:53 PM

Julio Jones (hip) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Jones had the bye week to rest his injured hip and should be ready to roll Sunday against Miami. Though he's yet to visit the end zone this year, Jones remains a top-tier fantasy option in all formats, particularly playing on his home turf.
Oct 11 - 4:51 PM

Julio Jones (hip) appears to be practicing Monday.

The Falcons do not have to release an injury report for this session, so we will not get an official designation. Still, he was wearing a helmet and catching passes in the part of practice open to the media, suggests he is at least going to get in some limited work. Despite picking up a hip injury before the bye, Jones is fully expected to play against the Dolphins this week.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: The Falcons opened up as huge -10.5 favorites with an implied total of 29 points. Although game flow may not work in Jones' favor, he could do plenty of damage early against Dolphins CB Xavien Howard. Prior to playing a Titans team with Matt Cassel, Howard had the fifth-worst cover snaps per reception rate (6.8, per PFF) and a 76.2% catch rate. As a unit, Miami ranked 31st in pass DVOA and 30th against WR1s. Plus, if Sanu misses the game, Jones' market share should increase. He’ll likely be a chalky DFS option.

Oct 9 - 12:22 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Julio Jones (hip flexor) is not expected to miss any games.

Coach Dan Quinn confirmed as much on Monday. Perhaps the report would be different if the Falcons were not on bye this week, but the week off should give Jones time to get ready for a Week 6 matchup with the Dolphins. There have not been any reports about Mohamed Sanu's (hamstring) timetable, but he would seemingly have a good chance to suit up as well. For now, Justin Hardy and Taylor Gabriel can be left on the wire.
Oct 2 - 8:06 AM

Julio Jones suffered a hip flexor in Sunday's Week 4 game with Buffalo.

Jones went down late in the second quarter and was ruled out after halftime. It's a huge blow to the Falcons pass game, though this is an injury he'll have a chance to play when Atlanta comes out of their Week 5 bye. With Mohamed Sanu also sidelined, Justin Hardy and Taylor Gabriel are playing in two-wide sets.
Oct 1 - 2:06 PM

Julio Jones (back) was removed from the Week 4 injury report.

The Falcons limited Jones' reps in practice this week, but his status was never a concern. He doesn't have a great matchup against RCB E.J. Gaines, as the Bills have yet to allow a touchdown this season. Jones is still a locked-in WR1 for Week 4.
Sep 29 - 5:36 PM

Falcons coach Dan Quinn said Julio Jones (back) will be limited again in Thursday's practice.

The Falcons are being careful with Jones early in the week, but there still does not seem to be any concern about his playing status. Jones will be a locked-in WR1 against the Bills.

Julio Jones (back) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

This was fully expected. Coach Dan Quinn didn't sound concerned with Jones' status earlier this week. He should be fine for Sunday's matchup with Buffalo.
