View More Notes

Jones' usage has been disappointing through the first two games, as he's seen just 14 targets. But he did total 108 yards receiving last week against Green Bay, and the majority of that came in the early going before the Falcons put their offense on cruise control. Jones will match up against Darius Slay in the Falcons' Week 3 matchup against the Lions, so he certainly doesn't have an easy task ahead of him. But Slay is no longer a shutdown corner at this point, and if the Lions try to contain Jones with 1-on-1 coverage, he should have a huge game. Either way, you're never benching one of the top receivers in the game, and he'll be a high-end WR1 here.

Julio Jones tops 100 yards as Falcons beat Packers

Julio Jones caught five of his nine targets for 108 yards and was held out of the end zone in last night's victory over the Packers.

Fantasy Impact

Jones got going against the Packers secondary that is in the bottom half of the league. It's still disappointing to fantasy owners that he was held out of the end zone yet again, but scoring touchdowns isn't something Jones needs to provide a ton of value. Jones is still a high end WR1 and an obvious start every week he is healthy.
