Injury-based fantasy advice - START - Jones missed practice this week with a calf injury. This is a tricky injury for a WR, but Julio is a guy you have to start if he is active (which he should be). Keep an eye on him throughout the weekend but he should be out there week 3.

39% TS (most), 477 air yards (most)

Jones played well against New Orleans last season, averaging 123.5 yards per game. He's coming off a down week and should have a nice bounceback performance.

Jones did not find the end zone last week, but at least the team was proficient in the red zone and Jones will look to bounce back this week against a suspect Saints D.

Still looking to snap a seven-game touchdown drought in the regular season, Jones recorded 247 yards on 22 targets in both of last year's games against the Saints. He's still a top-five wideout with a remarkably high floor despite facing Marshon Lattimore.

NFL's premier chain-mover has produced the most 1st Downs in the league since '15 - upcoming schedule (NOLA, PIT, TB in 3 of next 4) should afford plenty of opportunities to pad that lead
