Julio Jones Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

Titans WR Julio Jones' availability for Sunday's game against the Jets is "up in the air" due to a leg injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. We don't have any other details on the issue -- but we know that it limited Jones' Week 3 playing time. We'll keep an eye on his practice participation this week. With WR A.J. Brown (hamstring) likely out for Week 4, Tennessee might be down to WRs Chester Rogers, Nick Westbrook-Ikhine, Cameron Batson, Josh Reynolds and Racey McMath. RB Derrick Henry might carry it 40 times.

Titans WR Julio Jones played just 50% of the offensive snaps in the win over the Colts, finishing with 3 catches on 4 targets for 47 yards. HC Mike Vrabel wouldn't say in his post-game presser whether Jones was injured. "Just trying to manage where he's at," Vrabel said. We'll see if Jones pops up on this week's injury report.

Titans WR Josh Reynolds (foot) is inactive for today's game vs. the Cardinals. He was set to serve as Tennessee's #3 WR. Reynolds' absence should just mean a few extra targets for WRs A.J. Brown and Julio Jones.

Titans WR Julio Jones took part in practice Tuesday for the 1st time since an Aug. 2 spill took him off the field. It sounds like Tennessee was limited in its activity Tuesday, so we’ll see how much Jones participates in the next full workout. This is obviously a positive development, though.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that the injury that's sidelined Titans WR Julio Jones for the past 4 days is "nothing major." Rapoport adds that Tennessee plans to manage Jones' practice reps throughout the season. Smart. Jones has played all 16 games in just 4 of 10 NFL seasons and remains 1 of the bigger injury risks at WR heading into 2021. But he also remains a good bet for at least WR2 production when he's on the field.

Titans WR Julio Jones missed his 2nd straight practice on Wednesday with an undisclosed injury. HC Mike Vrabel had no timeline for Jones' return and suggested that Jones might not practice much in camp, according to Jim Wyatt of the team's official website. We haven't heard anything to suggest that Jones' injury is serious, but we'll keep an eye on him.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Falcons are trading WR Julio Jones to the Titans for "at least a 2nd-round pick." We'll see about the final details, but the move obviously means big impact for a pair of offenses. Acquiring a top-shelf WR talent could indicate a desire to lean a little more toward the pass in Tennessee. Jones' arrival certainly hurts the target ceiling for A.J. Brown and leaves fewer looks for other Titans. His departure from Atlanta makes Calvin Ridley the #1 wideout and elevates the rest of a shaky depth chart. Tajae Sharpe and Olamide Zaccheaus could be battling for the #2 outside WR spot in 3-wide sets. Rookie TE Kyle Pitts finds a higher target ceiling as well. We'll continue evaluating this developing situation for both offenses.

Update: Rapoport hears that the Falcons are receiving a 2022 2nd-round pick and a 2023 4th for Jones and a 2023 6th-rounder.
