2015 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Jun-27-2015 by Shawn Childs

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.

Jul-29-15 Falcons WR Roddy White had his knee drained this offseason and expects to again

Roddy White says he had his knee drained before minicamp opened and believes he'll have to get it drained again during the season. He prefers not to get surgery even though it has been suggested. The good news is that the procedure only costs him a few days of practice. "It's not a concern to me because it's just like a little irritation,'' White said. "My cartilage in my knee is not smooth. It's kind of rippled. You can elect to have surgery, but I just decided not to because I'm not a surgery guy. I just don't want to do it … They gave me the option two years ago to have surgery. They said they would have to slice off the top of my cartilage, and I was like, 'I don't want to do that.' I don't want them to keep shaving my cartilage off until there's no more cartilage. Then you start to get arthritis … If I get my knee drained on a Monday, I can practice on Wednesday. It's not an issue where I'm going to miss a game, because it's such a small issue. I'm not worried about it -- not at all.''

Fantasy Analysis:

This is what it is. White is an aging receiver dealing with issues aging receivers deal with. He'll turn 34 years old this season and is now clearly the No. 2 WR to Julio Jones. This does not mean White doesn't have value. He admits to not being himself last season thanks to injury and still caught 80 passes for 921 yards and seven TDs. The question is, will White be himself again. He is currently being drafted as the WR40. Putting up WR40 numbers is more than an obtainable goal for him.
