Shark Bites

Titans WR Julio Jones is out for the rest of Sunday's game vs. the Steelers with a hamstring injury. Jones, of course, has battled hamstring trouble all year. He finishes this one catch-less on 1 target.

Recent Shark Bites

Eagles WR Julio Jones has been elevated from the practice squad and is expected to play vs. the Dolphins on Sunday night, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The 34-year-old Jones evidently kept himself in good shape if he's ready to play less than a week after joining the Eagles. Jones should not be in Week 7 season-long fantasy lineups and would likely need an injury to WR A.J. Brown or WR DeVonta Smith to have bankable fantasy value this season.

The Eagles announced out of nowhere Tuesday that they have signed WR Julio Jones. The move likely signals that they don't expect WR Quez Watkins -- who recently landed on IR -- to return anytime soon. It's tough to imagine a significant fantasy impact from Jones, though. He caught just 3.1 passes per game with the Titans in 2021 and then 2.4 per game with last year's Buccaneers. Each set a career low. And Jones appeared in just 10 games each season. We'll be interested to see how the Eagles incorporate Jones. But we're not chasing him on redraft waivers or adjusting outlooks for any incumbents on the Philly offense.

Update: Ian Rapoport adds that Jones is joining the practice squad, but that he's likely to get quickly elevated. We'd also be surprised if Jones signed to just work on the practice squad.

Bucs WR Julio Jones (knee, illness) is inactive for today's game vs. the Falcons. The rest of Tampa's regulars are active, but we're not expecting them to play much in this meaningless game.

11:38am EST 1/1/23

Buccaneers WR Julio Jones (knee) is active for today’s game vs. the Panthers. He played behind Chris Godwin, Mike Evans and Russell Gage last week. Jones isn’t a viable Week 17 fantasy play.

Buccaneers WR Julio Jones (knee) was a limited practice participant all week and is officially questionable for Week 17 vs. the Panthers. We don't consider the veteran a fantasy-viable option even if he plays.
