Julio Jones, Roddy White don't practice on Wednesday, should be fine in fantasy on Sunday

Chris Graythen

Julio Jones' knee and Roddy White's ankle kept them out of practice on Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Julio Jones (knee) and Roddy White (ankle) did not practice with the team on Wednesday. They are both expected to play on Sunday against the Rams.

"We took the pads off about halfway through practice," Falcons coach Mike Smith said. "A lot of our guys were a little banged up from the game on Sunday.

Fantasy impact: There's little to be concerned about here with either player. White missed most of the preseason with an ankle sprain. Julio did have a sub-par game on Sunday and his inability to hold onto the ball may have been the difference for the Falcons in New Orleans, but he should be good to go. Rams cornerback Janoris Jenkins is one of the better corners in the NFL, but Larry Fitzgerald was able to carve him up on Sunday, which means it should be a favorable matchup in what could be a high scoring game. Both White and Jones should be ready to roll against the Rams and serve as must-start options.
