Falcons WR Julio Jones should remain in your lineups
Why did Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones catch just one pass against the Panthers in Week 4? Offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter said Jones' lacerated hand "hindered" him. Jones said it was because the Panthers doubled him for the whole game. Whatever the reason, Jones will be ready to roll Sunday against the Redskins.
Jones is on the injury report because of his laceration and listed as probable, but pay no attention to that. Just start Julio. I know fantasy owners are freaking out about his low totals since Week 1; I couldn't be less worried. He's a big target with tremendous talent in an explosive offense with a great QB. And this week, Jones gets to face the Redskins, who would probably allow 100 yards and a score to Terance Mathis right now. Washington has given up more than 1,000 yards and seven touchdowns to WRs through four games.
