Julio Jones marked active by Falcons for Week 12: Fantasy implications

Chris Graythen

Julio Jones has been marked active for Sunday's game between the Falcons and the Buccaneers despite a sore ankle. We break down the fantasy implications.

Julio Jones has been marked active by the Atlanta Falcons for Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Jones has been dealing with a sore ankle since Week 10 against the New Orleans Saints.

Jones was able to practice on a limited basis Thursday and Friday before being marked questionable heading into the weekend. He played last week as well, despite not practicing at all during the week prior.

Fantasy Impact: Just how effective Jones will be is the big question. He had just three receptions for 33 yards last week, and has yet to go over 100 yards receiving since racking up 129 yards against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 9.

Jones' ceiling is as high as any other pass catcher's in the league, and as such he should still be considered a fantasy starter. Just be warned that his dud potential is higher than normal this week.
