Julio Jones removed from injury report

After sitting out with a calf injury, Julio Jones was removed from the Falcons' injury report ahead of their Week 3 contest against the Saints.

Fantasy Impact

Jones gave owners a minor scare earlier in the week when he missed practice, but this was never expected to be something serious. Julio has played through injuries before, so this is nothing new. He continues to carry one of the highest upsides among fantasy wide receivers, with his only limiting factor being his strange lack of touchdowns over the years.

Julio Jones misses another practice on Thursday

Julio Jones (calf) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

Fantasy Impact

"I'm good," Jones said of his health. "I'm just getting treatment and things like that. We've done this numerous times in the past for me. But, it's just a precaution. It's just day-to-day to see how I feel." The big test will be Friday to see if Jones practices or not. If he doesn't then fantasy owners should be looking at other options to start at wide receiver.

Julio Jones did not practice on Wednesday

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) did not practice on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Although Jones missed Wednesday's practice with a calf issue, the injury is not expected to be a serious one. While they could have held him out as a precaution, it is likely merely a rest day for the stud wideout. Jones will have Marshon Lattimore and the Saints in Week 3. Barring a setback, he's starting in all fantasy formats.

Julio Jones quiet in Week 2

Falcons WR Julio Jones caught 5-of-9 targets for 64 yards in Sunday's Week 2 win over the Panthers.

Fantasy Impact

Following a big performance in the season opener, Jones was contained by the Panthers, allowing Atlanta's other weapons, including Matt Ryan, to beat them. In his upcoming matchup against the Saints, Jones will get a chance to bounce back in a big way facing their susceptible secondary. Jones is a mid-tier WR1 for Week 3.

Julio Jones has a big night in the season opener

Falcons WR Julio Jones caught 10-of-19 targets for 169 yards while adding another 11 yards on his only carry in Thursday night's Week 1 loss to the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact

While Jones had a tremendous night in receptions, yards and YPC (16.9), he failed to score the football, continuing his touchdown woes. However, his 19 targets should make his fantasy owners ecstatic for what could be in store in 2018. In a favorable matchup facing a horrendous Panthers secondary, Jones is a top-five wideout for Week 2.
