Fantasy Analysis
Week 3 Projections
Not known for his scoring prowess, Jones is currently tied for the NFL lead in touchdown catches with three. He also leads the Falcons in targets (21) with wingman Calvin Ridley coming in a close second (16). An Indianapolis Colts defense that gave up the fewest wideout fantasy points in 2018 has yielded the sixth-fewest fantasy points to the position so far this season but surrendered a huge outing to Keenan Allen (Chargers) in Week 1. Jones is a must-start and will remain busy in a pass-heavy attack (Matt Ryan is tied for third in the NFL in attempts), but ratchet down your expectations for the elite wideout a bit since the Indianapolis defense is usually stingy at home.
Receiving: 6 Receptions, 74 Yards, 1 TD.

Season Projections
Julio finally broke out of his touchdown slump last season to go along with his league leading 1,677 yards. Jones posted 105 more yards than the second leading WR (Hopkins) in 2018. Despite the Falcons having a difficult year, Jones continued to thrive in Atlanta. It helps his case playing most of his games at home on the fast track, but Jones actually had better numbers on the road last year. The only concern is his latest injury woes, but over the last five seasons he has missed just three games.

Rushing: 6 Yards, 0 TD.
Receiving: 75 Receptions, 1056 Yards, 10 TD.
