Falcons HC Dan Quinn said Monday that WR Julio Jones (toe) will be "ready to rock" for Sunday's NFC Championship against the Packers, although he'll be limited in practice this week. Jones aggravated the toe injury he originally suffered in Week 13 and was sidelined for much of the 4th quarter of Saturday's win over the Seahawks. He ended up playing a season-low 58.3% of the snaps. Quinn's optimism -- and the fact that Jones will practice at all this week -- are obviously good signs, though. We'll keep an eye on him.

Falcons WR Julio Jones aggravated his sprained toe in Saturday's win over the Seahawks, HC Dan Quinn said afterward. Jones was noticeably hobbled at multiple times during the game and was sidelined late in the 4th quarter. "No concern, at the moment," Quinn said. "We'll have more information on that later. It will be sore, but he's certainly somebody that's able to battle through it. So, I anticipate him being ready to rock next week." We'll be on Julio Watch throughout next week.

When asked if he'd monitor the snaps of WR Julio Jones in Sunday's finale, Falcons HC Dan Quinn said Friday: "He looked good over the last couple of days, so I'm not going to monitor him. If it gets sore, then we'll take him out. He looked good in practice today. He looked strong. He looked explosive." That comes via ESPN's Vaughn McClure. The "if it gets sore" reminds everyone that there's some re-injury risk to Jones. But this is certainly a positive take overall. He's a must-play for season-long formats and a high-ceiling option for DFS lineups.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) is not listed on the final injury report. He practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday. Jones might be closer to 100% for Saturday’s game against the Panthers than we originally thought. He belongs in Week 16 fantasy lineups.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) was on the practice field again on Thursday. It means his toe responded well to Wednesday's workout. Jones is on track to play against the Panthers this weekend. Even at less than 100%, he'll be a must-start in Week 16 fantasy lineups.

Injury Predictor

Really, the only questions are whether you prefer him vs. Antonio Brown and Odell Beckham, and whether you’d prefer a top RB. We’ll take Brown as still the safest bet atop the fantasy board, and we’ll lean Beckham for TD upside over Jones, who has only averaged 8.4 TDs per 16 games through his 5 seasons. Format might sway the Jones-RB decision, but we’re starting just about any draft with the top 3 wideouts -- all of whom look safer than any RB on the board.
