2016 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Aug-12-2016 by Shawn Childs


The decline of Roddy White over the last couple of years led to an extraordinary opportunity for Jones in 2014 and 2015. He led the NFL in targets (203), receptions (136), and receiving yards (1871) last year, but he failed to make an impact in TDs (8). In his career, Julio has 34 TDs in 65 games with his best success coming in 2012 (10 TDs in 16 games). His floor is extremely high due to catching seven passes or more in 12 of his 16 games in 2015. Jones had over 100 yards receiving in nine games and double-digit targets in 14 contests. Over the last two seasons, Julio averaged 7.7 catches for 111.7 yards and 0.45 TDs per game or 22.1 Fantasy points per game in PPR leagues. The Falcons don't have a strong second wide receiving option on the roster and their TE options aren't strong enough to draw a high volume of looks. Jones will continue to be one of the best Fantasy options again in 2016 with even higher upside with growth in his TD production. Julio should be in line for a 120/1500 season with a superb chance at double TDs and more upside in all areas. He will be a top-five pick in PPR leagues.
