4 months agoDespite having Steve Sarkisian as offensive coordinator for a second season, Julio Jones still compiled a stellar 2018 in Atlanta. With 113 receptions for 1,677 yards and eight touchdowns, Jones did everything in his power to carry a team which lost Devonta Freeman early in the season to injury. The 2019 season should be much better for Atlanta as a whole and possibly even Jones individually. With Dirk Koetter returning to direct the offense, and Freeman healthy, this unit should take a step forward. By selecting Chris Lindstrom and Kaleb McGary, the Falcons spent both first-round draft picks to try to sure up an offensive line which suffered from injury and bad play in 2018. If they can do this and Devonta Freeman can get back to his former RB one form than Jones could be even better. That is hard to believe with how good he has already been in his career. Jones is currently going off the draft board at the start of the second round, in the same area as Michael Thomas and Odell Beckham. He should also finish the season in the same range as these players. That is to say in the top-five of fantasy wide receivers. The only thing missing from Jones' arsenal is the high touchdown potential. He has only finished with more than 10 touchdowns once in his career, while a player like Antonio Brown seems to do this regularly. If 2019 is the year in which he returns to the double-digit touchdown threshold, then this could also be the season in which he finishes as the WR1. Even if the touchdowns do not accumulate at the rate, we hope he is at worst a top-five player at the position and well worth a late first round pick and absolutely a second-round pick.--Dominick Petrillo - RotoBaller
