Falcons WR Julio Jones good to go for Thursday's game versus Saints

After battling an ankle injury for the past few weeks, Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones @juliojones_11 looks like he'll be relatively close to 100 percent when Atlanta hosts the Saints on Thursday night. Jones isn't even on the team's official injury report this week.

Fantasy Analysis:

It's a welcomed change of pace for the oft-ailing Jones. There was a lot of trepidation from people wondering if they should start Julio against the Buccaneers without any practice leading up to Sunday. Hopefully you looked at that very real chance Jones suffers a setback in the game and spit in its face. Jones rewarded the owners who did start him with a career-high 147 yards and a score. He's a guy you just can't bench when active, and he is an absolute WR1 stud this week against the Saints. He missed nearly half of the first game against the Saints a few weeks ago and still posted four catches for 75 yards.
