Julio Jones Fantasy Stats: Explosive First Half For Falcons WR

Julio Jones had a BIG day for his fantasy football owners. The Falcons receiver put up some startling stats in the first half, catching two passes for 130 yards (!) and two touchdowns (!!!).

Matt Ryan completed just five of his first 14 passes, so he might want to consider looking toward Jones more in the second half. You might want to consider watching these Julio Jones touchdown videos from today. They're awesome.

Update: Jones only caught one pass for one yard in the second half.

Jones had 358 receiving yard on the season with 0 receiving touchdowns entering Week 9. Jones was averaging 72 yards receiving per game. 

Jones was ranked as the 23rd ranked wide receiver according to Yahoo! heading into his match up with the Indianapolis Colts who rank 22nd against the pass, giving up 259 passing yards per game.
