Julio Jones enjoyed a fantasy fiesta in the Falcons’ season opener, hauling-in 9 passes for 141 yards with a pair of scores against the Eagles. However, he’s missed a couple of practices this week with a tender hamstring, and had previously been listed as questionable for Atlanta’s trip to New York this weekend.
But not to fear! Julio Jones participated in the Falcons’ practice on Friday and is officially listed as probable for Sunday. Per ESPN Falcons beat writer Vaughn McClure (a real name!), Jones looked fine in practice:
Jones ran routes without much issue. He seemed to have no trouble elevating to catch the ball. And he showed no favoritism toward his right hamstring, which appeared to be the one he banged up.
This all sounds dandy. You should go ahead and stick Julio into your lineups with no second thoughts. Of course, if he suffered a setback and was limited or out this week, Roddy White would have awesome fantasy value.
