Julio Jones holds his own for fantasy owners

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The Falcons’ wide receiver took over as the No. 1 receiver in the team’s loss to the Dolphins in Week 3. We discuss the fantasy implications.

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones caught nine passes for 115 yards on 12 targets in a 27-23 Week 3 loss to the Miami Dolphins. Jones has proved to be quarterback Matt Ryan's most reliable receiver so far this season with teammate Roddy White noticeably struggling in part due to injuries.

Fantasy impact: Through three games this year, Jones is averaging an impressive nine catches and 122 yards per game for the Falcons. He didn't score against the Dolphins, but is generally a good bet to do so, especially with Roddy White experiencing quite a drop in production so far this season. It remains to be seen whether White can continue to play hurt, and even if he does, Jones' fantasy value will stay high. Use Jones in your starting lineup going forward as he is a proven fantasy commodity.
