Falcons, fantasy owners celebrate 182 yards and TD for Julio Jones

Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

With the team's other primary weapons not at their peak, Jones had a big game Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Wide receiver Julio Jones caught 11 passes for 182 yards Sunday, adding a score as the Falcons beat the St. Louis Rams 31-24. Jones' teammate Roddy White was active, but not much of a factor in the team's offense.

Jones' touchdown came on an 81-yard reception in the second quarter, putting the team ahead 14-0.

Fantasy impact: This is basically what the Falcons' offense is likely to look like as long as White is dealing with his high-ankle sprain, especially with Steven Jackson, the team's primary running back, missing for most of the game with a thigh injury.

Jones had seven more receptions, six more targets, and 139 more receiving yards than any other Falcons' pass-catcher. The Falcons' next game will be at Miami next Sunday afternoon, which is not a defense that should be able to shut him down completely under normal circumstances. However, if White and Jackson are out and/or hobbled, the Dolphins might be able to focus all their attention on Jones, they might slow the receiver down.
