We've become so used to it that the fact that Julio Jones consistently puts up 1,400+ receiving yards practically goes un-talked about. This offense is going to air the ball out and Julio will be the centerpiece of it all. There's no reason to doubt Jones putting up video game like numbers again in 2019.

Return of OC Dirk Koetter should be fine for Jones (Koetter-led offenses have finished Top 4 in pass att. in 4 of his past 6 seasons) - Jones led NFL with 170 targets, and is avg. 104.6 rYPG since '13

Julio Jones has over 1,400 receiving yards in each of the last 5 seasons. Think about that for a second. The guy everyone wants to say is super injury prone has over 1,400 receiving yards in 5 straight seasons. He's also averaged 6.2 TD's over that stretch, which isn't elite, but it's also not as bad as people make it out to be. Since 2014 he's finished as the WR: 8/2/6/4/5. New OC Dirk Koetter loves to push the ball downfield, and that's exactly where Julio thrives. Look for Julio to finish as a top 8 WR yet again in 2019.

When he's on the field, you have yourself a guaranteed top-five wide receiver. While health has been an issue in the past, Jones has now played at least 14 games in five straight seasons. Outside of his rookie season and the year he needed surgery on his foot, Jones has been a top-10 receiver in all six of his other seasons. He's a safe pick at the back-end of the first-round.

Jones had 113 receptions for 1,677 yards and 8 touchdowns last year. He snapped out of his TD drought last year and reestablished himself as an elite WR1.
