Julio Jones is expected to suit up for the Atlanta Falcons for Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to reports. Jones has been hampered in recent weeks by a sore ankle suffered in Week 10 against the New Orleans Saints.
Jones has yet to miss a game due to the injury. He played last week despite not practicing at all leading up to kickoff. Jones was a limited participant Thursday and Friday this past week.
Fantasy Impact: Jones will be on the field, but whether he is effective is a bigger question for fantasy owners. He had just three receptions for 33 yards last week, which was his second-worst yardage output of the season.
Jones' matchup is a decent one this week, so he is probably still worth the gamble in most fantasy formats. Just bear in mind that Jones' chances of producing a dud are much higher than normal, as well.
