Falcons WR Julio Jones is expected to be ready for the start of training camp, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Jones underwent what was deemed a minor foot surgery on March 6. He was in a boot but getting around without crutches at an appearance on Wednesday. “I’m good,” Jones said. "My thing right now is recovery." We'll continue to track his progress. For now, there's no reason to believe the procedure will impact Jones' 2017 campaign.

Falcons WR Julio Jones had what the team calls a "minor foot procedure" on Monday. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that the surgery addressed a bunion that "had bothered him for years." We don't have any details on how long Jones will be sidelined, but this doesn't seem like something that will impact his 2017 season. Still, durability remains an issue for a guy who's missed 17 games over 6 NFL seasons.

Falcons WR Julio Jones told reporters on Tuesday that he'll be evaluated in March to determine if he needs toe surgery. Jones suffered the injury -- either turf toe or a sprain, depending on who you ask -- in Week 13 and missed the next 2 games. He was dominant the rest of the way, though, even despite aggravating the issue in the Divisional Round of the playoffs. We'll keep an eye on whether Jones goes under the knife and how long he's sidelined for. Durability remains a concern for a guy who's missed 17 games over 6 seasons. But Jones has still finished as a top 6 PPR WR in 3 straight years. He'll be an early- to mid-1st-round pick in 2017 fantasy drafts.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) isn't listed on the final injury report. He was officially limited in Friday's practice after sitting out the previous 2 days, but HC Dan Quinn said Jones "looked good" and "won't have any limitations" on Sunday vs. Green Bay. It's still tough to believe that he'll be anywhere close to 100%, but Jones is still capable of being a difference-maker this weekend.

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.

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.
