2015 Outlook: Stud (low risk)Last updated on Aug-20-2015 by Shawn Childs
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE
There is a lot of greatness in Julio's game as well as plenty of injury risk. He has missed 15 of a possible 64 starts. 2014 was his best season to date as he caught 104 passes for 1,593 yards and six touchdowns. He also missed one game due to a hip injury that was suffered during his most productive NFL performance (11 catches on 17 targets for 259 yards and a TD). He finished seven games with 100 yards or more, including that 259-yarder. Jones averaged 10.9 targets per week. Julio was actually on pace to post better numbers in 2013 before a broken foot shut him down in Week 5. When looking at the Falcons' receiving options and their success when throwing the ball to WRs in 2014 (284 catches for 3,692 yards and 19 TDs), a Fantasy owner can see Jones' electric upside. He has scored 26 touchdowns in 49 contests and has the potential to catch 120 passes for 1,800 yards and double-digit TDs. His early ADP slots him at No. 8 as the third WR drafted. Jones is an excellent building block for a winning Fantasy team.
Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones
Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones has agreed to a five-year extension with the team. The deal is reportedly worth $71.25 million with $47 million guaranteed. Jones has separated himself as the clear WR1 in Atlanta. A.J. Green is next up for a big extension.Fantasy Analysis:
This was expected. There was never any real doubt that a deal would get done. There was no way the Falcons were going to let Jones walk. He's currently being drafted as the WR3. He is well worth his ADP and it wouldn't be shocking to see him finish as high as the top fantasy wideout.
