Falcons WR Julio Jones not practicing Thursday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2014) Falcons receiver Julio Jones (hip) is not practicing Thursday for the second straight day, reports ESPN.com. Jones missed Week 15, and coach Mike Smith has said Jones' playing status won't be decided until Sunday morning.

If Jones sits out again, Harry Douglas would start opposite Roddy White at New Orleans. Douglas set season highs with 10 catches for 131 yards in the loss to the Steelers.


Harry Douglas among Falcons wideouts watching Wednesday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2014) Like starters Julio Jones (hip) and Roddy White (ankle), Falcons receiver Harry Douglas (foot) was held out of practice Wednesday. White and Douglas are expected to play Sunday at New Orleans, while Jones' status won't be decided until shortly before kickoff.

Normally the No. 3 receiver, Douglas started in Jones' place Week 15 and caught 10 passes for 131 yards. He figures to be targeted heavily Sunday if Jones sits out again.

The Falcons are 6-point underdogs at every major Las Vegas sportsbook.


Falcons WR Julio Jones not practicing


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2014) Falcons wideout Julio Jones is not practicing Wednesday due to the hip injury that sidelined him Week 15. If Jones can't play Sunday at New Orleans, Harry Douglas would make a second straight start.

Douglas went off for 10 catches and 131 yards in the loss to Pittsburgh. He drew a game-high 14 targets.


Mike Smith: Wait until Sunday for 'firm decision' on Julio Jones


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2014) Falcons coach Mike Smith said Wednesday he won't be providing daily updates on star wideout Julio Jones, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Smith said the team will make a "firm decision" on Jones' status Sunday morning.

Jones missed Week 15 with a hip injury and would not say whether he'll practice Wednesday. If Jones sits out another game, receiver Harry Douglas would get another start opposite Roddy White.

Douglas capitalized on his opportunity against the Steelers, setting season highs with 10 catches for 131 yards. The Falcons visit the Saints in a potential shootout Sunday.


Falcons OC Dirk Koetter: We have a contingency plan for Julio Jones


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2014) Falcons offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter said Tuesday that the team has a contingency plan in place depending on the status of wide receiver Julio Jones, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

"It's hard when you don't know for sure if a guy is going to play no matter if it's Julio or not Julio," Koetter said on Tuesday. "We kind of have to have a contingency both ways. We have some 'what if Julio plays' and some 'what if Julio does not play.' We have both. That's one of the hardest things about not knowing if one of your best guys is going to go."

Jones missed Week 15 against Pittsburgh due to a hip injury. Coach Mike Smith said on Monday he's anticipating Jones back in the lineup this week.

Jones leads the league in receiving yards (1,428) and receptions of 20-plus yards (27) this season. If he's unable to play, the team will likely lean on Roddy White, Harry Douglas and Devin Hester in the aerial attack. The Falcons are a 6-point underdog at New Orleans.

Despite the report Jones will not play Sunday, team sources told NFL Network reporter Jeff Darlington that no decision has been made. Jones is still planning to test his injured hip in pregame warmups.

Report: Falcons' Julio Jones runs Saturday, still game-time decision

The Falcons will test Jones again during pregame warmups Sunday and a decision about his playing status is expected to be made about two hours before the 1 p.m. ET kickoff, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Report: Falcons WR Julio Jones will be a game-time decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/13/2014) Falcons coach Mike Smith told Ed Werder of ESPN that wide receiver Julio Jones continues to show improvement from his hip injury. However, he'll need to be evaluated by doctors and trainers prior to kickoff, making him a true game-time decision for Sunday's contest against Pittsburgh.

Smith said Friday that the decision to start Jones will come from the medical staff.

Jones broke the franchise record in receiving yards (259) in a game before exiting Week 14 at Green Bay with the injury. As a result, he was unable to practice this week. He has already surpassed his career high in receptions (93) and receiving yards (1,428) through 13 games.


Falcons list WR Julio Jones as questionable for Sunday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2014) Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones was officially listed as questionable for Sunday's home game against Pittsburgh in Week 15 because of a hip injury, per the team's official website.

"I want the doctors and the people to say that he's ready to go," Falcons coach Mike Smith said, per ESPN. "It's not going to be a decision I'm going to make. It's not a decision that Julio is going to make. They're going to evaluate it and make that decision."

Jones broke the franchise record in receiving yards (259) in a game before exiting Week 14 at Green Bay with the injury. As a result, he was unable to practice this week, placing him in danger of missing his first game of the season. In 13 games, Jones has 93 catches for 1,428 yards and six touchdowns.

Falcons' Julio Jones unlikely to be 100 percent on Sunday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/11/2014) Falcons wideout Julio Jones will probably not be at 100 percent on Sunday, according to CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. 

Jones will likely be a game-time decision for the contest due to a hip injury. He's been unable to practice this week due to the issue. Even if Jones is able to play, expecting him to be "normal" is probably a long shot. 


Hip problem has Falcons WR Jones out again Thursday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/11/2014) Falcons prolific wideout Julio Jones missed another practice Thursday with a hip ailment, but Mike Smith said there was a "good chance" he will play Sunday against Pittsburgh. Jones appears destined to be a game-time decision.

Mike Smith hopeful about WR Julio Jones, S William Moore


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/9/2014) Falcons coach Mike Smith told reporters wideout Julio Jones (hip) and safety William Moore (foot) are sore after leaving Monday's loss at Green Bay with injuries, but Smith is hopeful they'll play Sunday against the Steelers. Smith doesn't expect Jones and Moore to practice much this week.

Smith said he had no specifics on Jones' injury, adding the team will know more in a couple days. Jones hauled in 11 passes for a franchise-record 259 yards against the Packers, catching a touchdown pass for the third straight week.


Julio Jones the clear focal point now


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/9/2014) Remember that six-game stretch from Week 6 to Week 12 when Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones only once topped 70 yards? Yeah, me neither. He's done that six times over the last two weeks, setting a franchise record with 259 yards on 11 catches Week 14 at Green Bay. He also scored a touchdown, but when you top 200 yards, that's kind of just an afterthought.

He's now the league's leading receiver with 1,428 yards on the season, which shows how quickly things can change. For a while there, he was looking like a disappointment, a casualty of a depleted offensive line giving quarterback Matt Ryan no hope of throwing the ball downfield. But he's now bettered his previous career high by more than 200 yards  ... and with three games still to go. With Ryan taking only one sack this week and one last week against Arizona, the remade line has jelled enough for Jones to stretch the field again. And the Falcons seem to recognize what a luxury that is now.

Of course, the hip injury he suffered late in Week 14 could change things, but for now, it doesn't seem to be a major concern. Now that he's the clear focal point for an offense built to throw, you can trust him for stud numbers even at less than 100 percent.


Coach: Initial diagnosis on Julio Jones' hip injury unclear


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/9/2014) Falcons coach Mike Smith said the initial diagnosis on Julio Jones' hip injury is unclear, reports NFL.com. But Smith "didn't sound too concerned" about Jones, who exploded for 11 catches, 259 yards and a touchdown against the Packers, the report said.

"When Julio is healthy, and he and Matt [Ryan] are in tune with one another, they're as good as any in the NFL, and [Jones] is as good as any in the NFL," Smith said, not dwelling on the injury.

However, WSB-TV in Atlanta reported Jones "was definitely hurting" after the game.

Jones left the 43-37 loss in the fourth quarter and wasn't on the field for Atlanta's final drive. He got hurt getting tackled following his 11th catch, a 9-yard gain to the Green Bay 3.

Jones established franchise records for receiving yards in a game and a season (1,428). If healthy, Jones will play the Steelers in Week 15.


Falcons WR Julio Jones goes wild on MNF


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2014) Falcons wideout Julio Jones dominated the Packers' secondary on Monday Night Football and set two franchise records in the process. Jones caught 11 of 17 targets for 259 yards and a touchdown and is up to 1,428 receiving yards this season, shattering Roddy White's franchise mark of 1,389 set in 2010.

Jones' 259 yards broke White's single-game record of 210, set in 2009 against the 49ers. Jones is the first NFL player to go over 175 receiving yards in consecutive weeks since Cleveland's Josh Gordon did it late last season, and Jones is the sixth wideout to post a 200-yard game this season.

Jones caught five passes for 100 yards in the first half. On the first play from scrimmage after halftime, he used a double move to break loose for a 79-yard reception, getting tackled at the 1. After failing to get two feet down on an end-zone catch in the third quarter, Jones atoned with a 22-yard touchdown grab early in the fourth.

Jones left the game in the fourth quarter with a hip injury. The severity was not immediately clear. He's scheduled to face the Steelers in Week 15.


Julio Jones suffers hip injury on historic night


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2014) Falcons wideout Julio Jones left the game at Green Bay in the fourth quarter with a hip injury, with the team calling his return questionable. Jones suffered the injury getting tackled following his 11th reception.

He set a franchise record with 259 receiving yards.


Roddy White just holding Julio Jones back?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/1/2014) Wide receiver Julio Jones, who had been playing second fiddle to Roddy White in recent weeks, averaging 5.3 catches for 71.3 yards in the Falcons' last six games, got a chance to play without White, who was sidelined by an ankle injury, Week 13 against Arizona and put up the kind of numbers everyone expected of him coming into the year, catching 10 passes for 189 yards and a touchdown. And that was going up against Patrick Peterson, one of the league's better cornerbacks.

It's enough to make you think he's better off without White in the lineup, that the increased looks from quarterback Matt Ryan are worth the extra attention from the defense.

Except that White's replacement, Harry Douglas, got just as many targets (12) as Jones. And he had a monster game himself, catching nine passes for 116 yards.

More likely, it was just a good day for Ryan, who threw for 300 yards for the first time in seven games. It's not like White had been that much more productive than Jones over the previous six games apart from the touchdowns, so even if Jones picked up all of his slack, which clearly didn't happen in Week 13, it wouldn't amount to 189 yards.

Granted, you're starting Jones in Fantasy either way, but even if White remains sidelined for Week 14 at Green Bay, you'll want to keep your expectations in check.


Falcons' Julio Jones completely dominates Week 13


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Falcons wideout Julio Jones dominated the Cardinals Week 13.

Despite being covered by Patrick Peterson, Jones managed to turn in a huge game. He finished with 10 catches for 189 yards and a score. Jones was able to show his big play ability all game. He had catches of 25, 32 and 41 yards. The 41 yard catch came despite a defensive holding call. It was the fifth time this season Jones gained over 100 yards, and the second time he had over 150 yards in a game. 

Jones will look for a repeat Week 14 against the Packers. 


Roddy White continues to outperform Julio Jones


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/23/2014) Though Julio Jones found the end zone finally Week 12 against Cleveland, giving him his first touchdown since Week 3 against Tampa Bay, he was once again outperformed by fellow Falcons wide receiver Roddy White -- not so much in terms of Fantasy points, since touchdowns have so much of the say in that, but certainly in terms of sustainable production. While Jones had five catches for 68 yards, White led the team with nine for 96.

And it's hardly a new development. Over the Falcons' last six games, Jones has averaged 5.3 catches for 71.3 yards. White, meanwhile, has averaged 6.7 catches for 74.8 yards -- and with the touchdowns to boot.

Maybe the comparison between Jones and White is pointless in Fantasy since few owners would honestly be deciding between the two, but the simple acknowledgment that White is the better play right now should change your perspective on both. If White is a No. 2 wide receiver in Fantasy, then Jones is no better than that. Likewise, if you'd never consider sitting Jones in Fantasy, then you probably shouldn't consider sitting White anymore either.


Falcons WR Julio Jones puts end to scoring slump


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones recorded a touchdown for the first time in eight games during a 26-24 loss Week 12 vs. Cleveland. Jones, who was targeted a team-high 13 times, finished with five catches for 68 yards.

Jones opened the scoring with a 24-yard touchdown catch with 5:53 left in the first quarter. It was his fourth touchdown catch this season and 24th career touchdown reception.

The Falcons are back in action Week 13 vs. Arizona.
