Saints D is atrocious and its in a dome. Julio should go off.   
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
Love Julios talent but Roddy White still trusted more by Matt Ryan   
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Saints secondary gave up the most points to fantasy wide receivers last year and while nobody has a cornerback that can cover Jones, the Saints have nobody that can even pretend like they have a shot at staying with him.   
Taylor Smith
NFL Soup
Julio may be the league's most potent deep threat, and he's one of several big-time weapons at Matt Ryan's disposal.   
Jordan Tozzi
Legion Report
Jones finished 20th in targets last season and 9th overall in fantasy WR points, which is a surprising ratio but understandable due to the amount of weapons in ATL. With Roddy White and Tony Gonzalez aging, it is evident that Julio Jones will see an uptick in targets, which typically translates to higher fantasy stats. Jones shows a great deal of upside and is smack-dab right in the middle of an electric offense in Atlanta.   
Muntradamus
Beast Dome
Julio Jones did not have his breakout year last season. The ceiling is still much higher on one of the most athletic/gifted players in this league. Now that the Falcons have a quality running game in Steven Jackson, those safeties cannot drop back 20 Yards to prevent the bomb. Matt Ryan just signed a huge contract with Atlanta, he better get the ball to Julio Jones.   
Staff Rankings
FFLockerRoom
Jones stepped up in his 2nd year, providing solid production across from R.White, for Matt Ryan and Fantasy owners alike. Owners should expect Jones to be drafted before White with some team owners reaching at the end of Round 2 and into Round 3.   
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
This game will be a shootout so Jones and White get a bump. They also can hurt each other's targets a bit, but both are must starts and in my top 10.
