Julio Jones returns to practice, fantasy owners sigh in relief

Chris Graythen

Julio Jones was back at practice on Thursday after getting a day off Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones returned to practice on a limited basis Thursday. Jones was held out on Wednesday with a knee issue, but it's not believed to be serious. Barring a setback, he should be ready to go for Sunday's game against the St. Louis Rams.

Jones picked up where he left off from last year, hauling in seven catches for 76 yards and a touchdown in Atlanta's loss to the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy impact: Jones' "injury" was most likely a day of rest for Wednesday. There is no indication of him missing this week's game. Jones will be going up against Cortland Finnegan and Julio Jones on Sunday. He may draw more attention with Roddy White still hobbled by an ankle injury, but fantasy owners shouldn't overthink this. Jones remains one of the best fantasy WRs in the league and is nearly matchup proof. Start him with confidence every week.
