WR - ATL
Week 13 Outlook
Falcons WR Julio Jones (hamstring) didn't practice Thursday.
Jones was able to log a limited practice on Wednesday, so Thursday's "DNP" is a little concerning. Ultimately, Friday's injury report will tell us whether or not Jones has a chance to suit up for Week 13 against the Saints.
Atlanta Falcons superstar wide receiver Julio Jones is expected to log a limited practice session on Wednesday.
Julio was ruled out for Week 12, so any participation on a Wednesday can only be viewed as a great sign for his potential Week 13 availability. He has been effective, if inconsistent, when healthy, and is averaging a career high in yards per target. If Julio can get healthy and see an increase in his target share he could help carry fantasy managers to the promised land. All eyes will be on his practice participation level in the coming days.
Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones is officially inactive for the team’s Week 12 matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders at home due to a hamstring injury.
Jones practiced on a limited basis earlier in the week but was a non-participant in Friday’s practice and was deemed to be a game-time decision heading into Sunday morning. A report early on Sunday morning indicated that he was not expected to play, and the Falcons now make it official. With Jones out, Calvin Ridley and Russell Gage should both see additional targets in the passing game.
Julio Jones is not expected to play against the Raiders in Week 12 while dealing with a hamstring injury.
Previously projected to be a game-time decision, it looks like the Falcons will be without their star wideout Sunday against Las Vegas. Without Jones in the fold, Calvin Ridley should see all the targets he can handle, while Hayden Hurst and Russell Gage also figure to see an uptick in targets. Olamide Zaccheaus should factor into the mix as well.
The Atlanta Falcons plan to assess how wide receiver Julio Jones and his hamstring are feeling Sunday morning before deciding whether he can play, according to a report from ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter. Jones is currently listed as questionable due to his ailing hamstring.
Jones couldn't finish last week's game against the Saints and didn't practice on Friday after being limited on both Wednesday and Thursday, so he is truly questionable heading into Sunday's matchup against the Raiders. The Falcons are 3-7 and have already fired their head coach, so they don't exactly have much to play for. But Jones has played through injuries in the past, so fantasy managers will have to check back in on his status on Sunday morning before making any final lineup decisions.
