Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones bounced back from a tough Week 16 with a big performance in Week 17 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Jones caught 9-of-13 targets for 138 yards and added his eighth touchdown of the season. It was another monster week from Jones who has gone from strength to strength this season. Jones should be in line for another big year in 2019 and remains one of the top wide receivers to own in dynasty formats entering this offseason.
Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones (hip, ribs) and running back Tevin Coleman (groin) will play in the Week 17 season finale against the Buccaneers. Jones currently leads the NFL in receiving yardage and will be a strong WR1 against a team he roasted earlier in the season. Coleman has been hit or miss as the team's lead back and is a shaky RB3/flex option for fantasy owners. Don't be surprised if we see a lot of Brian Hill mixing in with Coleman against Tampa. It'll likely be Coleman's final game in an Atlanta uniform, as he'll be a free agent in the offseason.
Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones (hip, rib) and running back Tevin Coleman (groin) both missed practice for the second straight day on Thursday. Jones rarely practices late in the season, but he should be out there in Week 17 against the Buccaneers as he tries to win the receiving title for the second time in his career. Jones has four touchdowns the last three weeks and had 10 catches for 144 yards in the first meeting with Tampa. He's an elite WR1 if he's active. Coleman is looking more doubtful in what is likely his last game in Atlanta. If he sits out, Brian Hill will be on the streaming radar in DFS games in a good matchup.
