Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones led all running backs, wide receivers and tight ends with 1,912 intended air yards in 2019.
Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones has recorded 286 receptions that have resulted in first downs or touchdowns since 2016, according to Pro Football Focus. Jones trailed only Michael Thomas (299) for the most over that span.
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill has amassed 1,765 yards on passes that traveled at least 20 yards downfield - more than 500 yards than second-place Julio Jones (1,223) for the most in the league by a player since 2017.
Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones ranked second in the NFL in receiving yards in 2019, and he has finished third or better among wideouts in yards in each of the past seven seasons.
Fantasy Spin: Jones is probably in the latter stages of his prime, but while he may not be the favorite to finish as the No. 1 fantasy receiver, he is one of the safest bets to finish as a top-five option at the position.
The Atlanta Falcons look poised to make some noise with a trade up in this month's draft. They have spent plenty of time evaluating and talking to players that figure to be gone by pick No. 16 i n the first round, and other teams think Atlanta will be on the move from the 16th pick. General manager Thomas Dimitroff sent a huge package of picks, including a future first-rounder, in order to trade up for wide receiver Julio Jones in 2011. The Falcons are unlikely to trade up for a wideout this year, but cornerback C.J. Henderson or an edge rusher would make plenty of sense.
Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones, with 12,125 yards, trails only Randy Moss (12,193) on the list of players with the most receiving yards by the age of 31 in league history. Jones turned 31 Saturday, Feb. 8.
Fantasy Spin: Jones finished fifth among fantasy wideouts last season -- his fifth straight top-six finish -- but he may be entering the downside of his standout career as his 1,394 receiving yards marked his lowest full-season total since his injury-shortened 2013 campaign.
Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones turned 13 targets into seven catches for 78 scoreless yards in Week 17 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Although the Buccaneers have performed poorly against the pass for the majority of the season, they have been better as of late and somewhat held Jones in check for much of the day. Since Calvin Ridley went down for the season, Jones has absolutely dominated the Falcons passing targets, and he was a stud in the fantasy playoffs. Heading into 2020, Jones will be 31 years old, but he's been fairly durable over the last few years and doesn't look like he's slowed down at all. Jones should be considered a high-end WR1 in 2020 drafts.
Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan finished up with 30-of-51 passes for 313 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Week 17 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. RB Devonta Freeman led the way with 18 rushes for 58 yards while adding two receptions for 15 yards. WR Julio Jones posted seven catches for a team-best 78 yards on 13 targets, while WR Russell Gage chipped in with seven grabs for 68 yards on 13 targets. TE Austin Hooper also checked in with seven receptions for 45 yards on nine targets. LB Deion Jones recorded a fumble recovery and a 27-yard interception return for touchdown in overtime.

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones (knee) has been held out of practice so far this week and his status for Week 17 against the Buccaneers is currently in question. If he misses the game, Matt Ryan takes a small hit, while Austin Hooper, Russell Gage and Devonta Freeman would get a boost.

His lack of scoring consistently has plagued him all season, but after having some solid performances over the last two games, fantasy managers could quickly learn to look past that.

Fantasy Spin: Jones is coming off his best game of the season in which he caught 13 of 20 targets for 134 yards and two touchdowns in the upset victory over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 15. He's a clear WR1 as long as he's active.

He delivered his biggest fantasy game of the year with 13 catches for 134 yards and two touchdowns. It was the team's first game with Calvin Ridley (abdominal), who is out for the season.

He's an absolute must-start WR1 with tantalizing upside so make sure he's in your lineups. He also may be worth splurging for in DFS this week coming off of his monster game.
