Julio Jones potential landing spots

Fantasy Impact: The Green Bay Packers are the odds-on favorites to land the future Hall Of Fame wideout, followed by the Indianapolis Colts and Dallas Cowboys. Jones’ former team, the Atlanta Falcons currently have the seventh-highest odds to land Jones’ services before the start of the season with oddsmakers placing the line at +1200. With the current state of the Packers WR core, Jones would be slated to take on a large role and potentially be the team’s WR1 immediately. Indianapolis would also be an intriguing spot for the 33-year-old Jones being that he spent almost his entire career receiving passes from the Colts current quarterback Matt Ryan. With Amari Cooper now off the roster and Michael Gallup most likely not going to be ready to suit up to begin the year, the Cowboys could indeed use the services of a receiver with Jones’ skill set to help open things up for CeeDee Lamb and the rest of the offense. All three of the current top teams to land Julio have one thing in common——Super Bowl aspirations. So, I think it’s safe to say the 33-year-old, 7-time Pro Bowler is looking to sign with a contender. Coming off a disappointing injury-riddled season where he played only 10 games for the Tennessee Titans and finished with 31 receptions for 434 yards and a single touchdown, Julio Jones is currently the 86th WR off the board.
