There is no 2017 profile for this player yet. Here is his 2016 profile:

2016 Outlook: Stud (low risk)


Week 14 DFS Update (12/12): Jones has been quiet in his last two games (5/56 and 8/93), with his last TD coming in Week 8. He has six 100-yard receiving games with six TDs. He has 10 double-digit targets games, leading to 13.2 targets per game. Last season Jones had 10 catches for 117 yards on 19 targets against the Panthers in two games. This week he'll draw Josh Norman on a high percentage of plays, which will limit his upside. I view Julio as the top WR to avoid in Week 14 with an all in push in Week 15.

Week 13 DFS Update (12/5): Ryan struggled to get the ball to Jones last week, which led to one of his lowest games of the year (five catches for 56 yards on seven targets). Jones has failed to score a TD in his last three games, while securing only two TDs in his last eight games. In Week 8 Jones had 12 catches for 162 yards and a TD on 13 targets against Tampa (17 catches for 280 yards and two TDs in two games in 2014 vs. the Bucs as well). He has seven games with nine catches or more and six games with 100 yards or more receiving, while averaging 12.8 targets per game. Jones will have a huge edge again over Tampa's two outside CBs. His recent resume points to impact upside in this matchup. The key for him is higher production in TDs.

UPDATE (9/30): Julio looks like Fantasy's No. 1 WR as he currently leads the league in targets, receptions and yards. The total disappearance of Roddy White only helps his Jones' Fantasy owners. Keep Julio in your starting lineup every single week.

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.
