Julio Jones (calf) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.
Advice: Jones told the media Thursday that his absence was just a precaution after his calf tightened up in Sunday's win over Carolina. We'd expect him to close out the week with a limited session on Friday. Even with Defensive Rookie of the Year Marshon Lattimore likely to shadow him, Jones will be safe to pencil in as a WR1 in all formats.
Julio Jones (calf) confirmed that his absence from Wednesday's practice was "precautionary."
Advice: Jones battled some minor calf tightness in last week's win over Carolina but claims to be "fine." Julio should be up to his usual tricks Sunday against New Orleans. He's RotoPat's No. 2 wide receiver for Week 3.
Jones sat for a second straight day Thursday due to a calf injury.
Advice: Jones got several days off during the course of last season but didn't miss a game, so fantasy owners probably shouldn't read too much into this news. The stud wideout is coming off a rather ordinary performance last week, though, as he was held to 64 yards while catching 5-of-9 targets against Carolina.
Julio Jones (calf) didn't practice on Wednesday.
Advice: Jones saw close to his normal workload (48-of-63 offensive snaps) in Sunday's win over Carolina, so it's possible this is just a maintenance day. As long as he returns to practice by Friday, Julio should be good to go for Week 3 against New Orleans.
Julio Jones had five receptions for 64 yards Sunday in the Atlanta Falcons' 31-24 win over the Carolina Panthers.
Julio Jones caught 5-of-9 targets for 64 yards in the Falcons' Week 2 win over the Panthers.
Advice: Jones caught a 30-yard pass on the opening drive of the third quarter, but he did little else. The Falcons scored four times in the red zone, but Jones wasn't a part of any of that, as Calvin Ridley and Austin Hooper caught 11- and 8-yard scores. It's frustrating for fantasy purposes, but it worked for the Falcons today. Jones will look to find the end zone against the Saints in Week 3.
