Julio Jones put in another impressive performance against the Chargers. We break down the fantasy implications.

After briefly leaving the game in the first quarter with an apparent hand injury, Julio Jones returned to action to catch five passes for 67 yards and a touchdown. He bounced back nicely from his low-key performance against the Broncos in Week 2.

Fantasy Impact: The hand does not appear to be an issue, so owners shouldn't be worried. Jones' touchdown came on a fade route in the corner of the end zone, as he lined up alone on the right side of the ball. Matt Ryan clearly looks for Jones first in the red zone, and the Falcons continue to take shots with him as they get closer to scoring territory. Jones is a WR1, even with Roddy White playing opposite him. It's hard to deny how talented he is.
