2 years agoJulio Jones has been a consistent weapon for the Falcons throughout his career and the 2016 season was no exception. Jones caught 83 passes for 1,409 receiving yards and commanded 129 targets, all numbers befitting of his elite wide receiver status. Jones’ upside this season is only hampered by being the best option on a team full of pretty good options. His six touchdowns last season can be attributed to the fact that he often lost scoring opportunities to the other Atlanta Falcons’ red zone scoring threats. The other limiting factor for Jones is his health. While Jones has only had one major injury, he has suffered several minor leg and foot injuries have essentially relegated the talented receiver to decoy duty and significantly diminished his fantasy football production. As of this article’s writing, Jones has already been limited in participating in training camp due to a toe injury. To his credit, at 28 years of age Jones is still in his prime and he has often been able to play while injured and still produce fantasy relevant numbers. While Jones might be a risk to under-perform on any given Sunday, when he does show up, he's often among the top five receivers for the week. Currently, Jones’ average draft position or ADP among wide receivers is number two, with an overall ADP of five. If you have one of the first five picks in your league, you'd do well to at least consider Julio Jones for your first pick, as should we all.--J Jones - RotoBaller
