Julio Jones active for TNF and ready to produce in fantasy

J. Meric

Julio Jones is active and back to 100% after being hobbled with a leg injury in recent weeks. We break down the fantasy implications.

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones is officially active for Thursday Night Football against the New Orleans Saints. The news should come as no surprise, but it confirms that Jones is back to 100% after being slowed with an ankle injury the past couple weeks. He is no longer on the injury reports.

Jones caught six balls for 147 yards and a TD against the Bucs in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact: Jones had no setbacks and played nearly the entire game. There should be no concerns about him going forward as fantasy owners gear up for the playoffs.

Start Jones as a WR1 tonight. For that matter, start all the Saints and Falcons on your roster--the game has shootout potential.

For more fantasy info, head over to the SB Nation Fantasy War Room 4-8:30 p.m. ET Monday through Thursday and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. ET on Sunday. Check out SB Nation's own Fantasy Football game, Pick 6!
