2017 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Over the last three seasons, Julio had 323 catches for 4,873 yards and 20 TDs on 495 targets or 7.2 catches for 108.3 yards and 0.44 TDs on 11 targets per game. He's a complete beast when on the field, but Jones does give Fantasy owners plenty of reasons to question his durability even in the prime of his career. He missed 11 games in 2013 and three games over the last three years while showing up on the injury report way too many times. Game score and game plan led to him being a decoy or not relevant in multiple games in 2016 while flashing his special qualities in six games (12/300/1, 7/139/1, 9/174, 10/135, 8/111/1, and 7/113) in the regular season plus a monster game vs. the Packers in the playoffs (9/180/2). Julio missed two games in December due to a toe injury that required surgery after the season. The Falcons won't push him in July while he's expected to be ready for the regular season. Jones has a 100-catch floor with an excellent chance of 1,500+ yards. The key is growth in TDs, which was an area of strength in his first two years in the league (18 in 29 games). The new offensive coordinator wants to get him more involved in close. His downside in TDs is tied to the season of the run game inside the 10-yard line. I like his finishing schedule (five games within the division in six games), so his reward should outweigh his injury risk.
