2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
Having parted ways with a boatload of draft picks in order to draft Jones with the 6th overall pick, the Falcons were expecting big things from the former Alabama product. And Jones didnt disappoint, hauling in 54 passes for 959 yards and eight touchdowns despite a hamstring injury that caused him to miss three full games and resulted in him not being targeted in another contest. He possesses elite size and speed and his rookie performance suggests that Jones will become an elite receiver in the league. Will it happen in 2012? His explosive performance as a rookie (17.8 yards per reception and nearly 1,000 receiving yards on just 94 targets) suggests that it is possible. However, the smart money is on Jones improving on his production as a rookie but not receiving elite status just yet. Roddy White soaks up a pile of targets (leading the league in each of the last two seasons with 179) and while the Falcons plan on throwing the ball more in 2012, no one is predicting they will be amongst the league leaders in passing attempts. Jones shapes up as one of the top three dynasty league wide receivers along with Calvin Johnson and A.J. Green and as a lower tier WR1 in 2012.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Julio Jones held out of practice Thursday     -- Thu Sep 22 5:25 pm --

Making "good progress" after suffering calf injury in Week 2
Falcons All-Pro WR Julio Jones, who had a player fall on the back of his calf with 5:02 to play in the Oakland game, did not practice on Thursday. Hes making good progress as we are going, Falcons coach Dan Quinn said. Hes able to participate in some of the walk-throughs to get moving around. Quinn expects Jones to play against the New Orleans Saints on Monday in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

FF Today's Take: Jones is no stranger to playing hurt, but there doesn't appear to be much concern (yet) about his status for Week 3. He's a WR1 every week he hits the field, but it should be noted he has seen a total of 13 targets through two weeks - a number he hit or surpassed in a single game eight times last season and the same number Mohamed Sanu has. Unless he encounters some kind of setback, he is a must-start versus New Orleans on Monday Night Football.
