Julio Jones hand injury should not hurt fantasy value against Redskins

Kevin Liles-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Julio Jones was a full participant this week. We break down the fantasy implications.

Julio Jones (hand) has practiced all week with the Falcons and is listed as probable to face the Redskins.

Analysis: After making a case to be fantasy's top wideout Week 1 with a 100-yard performance and two scores vs. the Chiefs, Julio hasn't really showed up for his owners. Many local writers have said the hand injury has limited the one of the most talented WRs in the league. The Redskins have been burned all over the place by receivers and they're ranked 31st in both YPA allowed and yards per attempt allowed. If you were drinking the Kool Aid for Julio, you'd have to be out of your mind to even consider benching him this week.
