Jacob Wayne
Lineups
Julio Jones has reportedly been dealing with a hamstring issue for a few weeks, but he played through it Week 1 and was excellent. The Falcons led the NFL in pass attempts last season and got right back to it last week as they battled back in garbage time against the Seahawks. This should be another positive game script for Jones as I expect the Cowboys to be able to put up points early against a porous defense. Jones should be in your lineup every week, obviously, and should be a top-five guy this week. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Julio is an auto-start every single week and he'll be lining up across from rookie CB Trevon Diggs in this matchup. Diggs is a solid rookie corner, but he doesn't stand a chance against one of the greatest receivers to ever play the game. This game is going to be a shootout and Jones could easily see more than the 12 targets he had in week one. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
What do you know? Another year, another Jones 150-yard performance. His 152 yards against the Seahawks tied his second-highest yardage total from last season, which oddly enough, also came against the Seahawks. Naturally, he didn't score a touchdown, but you shouldn't be concerned. The Cowboys don't have a shadow cornerback, so Jones will see a mix of Chidobe Awuzie, Trevon Diggs, and Anthony Brown. If they align the way they did last week against the Rams, Jones will see the most of the rookie Diggs. In his first game, he was targeted three times, allowing three catches for 63 yards. It's not going to get easier with Jones inside a dome. The Cowboys allowed the fifth-fewest yards to wide receivers last year, but they lost their best cornerback and had a chance in their defensive scheme, so it's a whole new ballgame. Start Jones as a WR1 this week in a game where the Falcons should throw the ball 40-plus times. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Cowboys were 15th against fantasy wide receivers in Week 1, Jones is a great WR1 option on the road this week.
