Julio Jones goes off for fantasy owners against Eagles

Rob Carr

Julio Jones led the way for the Falcons receiving game in Week 8. We break down the fantasy implications.

Julio Jones caught five passes for 123 yards and a touchdown against the Eagles in Week 8. His 63-yard score in the second quarter headlined his impressive day, as he led the Falcons in all major receiving categories.

Jones had a mediocre game last week, but he proved he's capable of going off at any moment this time around.

Fantasy Impact: Roddy White takes away from Jones being a dominant fantasy player every week, but they've both proven they can coexist peacefully for their owners. This week it was Jones taking the lead.

The Falcons will likely need both receivers to step up next week against the tougher Cowboys secondary. Jones should be in your lineup at all times.
