2013 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Oct-21-2013 by Matt De Lima

UPDATE (10/21): Jones is now on injured reserve, ending his 2013 season. He underwent successful foot surgery. The former Bama star remains an excellent keeper and dynasty choice.

Back when Alabama first recruited Julio Jones, everyone knew he would be special. He put up big numbers then and he will continue to do so for his entire career. Speed, power, hands, leaping ability and strength; Jones is the total package. The 24-year-old could put up Calvin Johnson numbers if not for the presence of Roddy White. Jones does have some small flaws (like lapses in his focus) which lead to the occasional drop. His big play ability and tendency to score points in bunches should be too much to pass up. Jones will be locked in as your WR1, so draft him if you can.

2013 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2013 FFToolbox Staff Mock Draft #1
June 18th, 2013
2.03 FFToolbox - Scott Atkins - It took me very little time to take Julio Jones who I have ranked the #3 WR overall for 2013. While my RB1 won't come until pick 3.10, I like the value I've been seeing drop at RB later in the draft.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #2
July 2nd 2013
2.01 KFFSC - When I found out I was picking 12th I immediately thought of a Lynch-Marshall combo. I'm thrilled that it ended up being Rice-Jones instead. Julio's in a prolific offense with a QB that loves to get him the ball. He'll receive a lot of attention from opposing defenses but with Gonzalez, Roddy White, and now Steven Jackson on the field it will be hard to shut Jones down. I thought about going with Jimmy Graham or Dez Bryant here but in a ppr contest that starts at least 3 WRs and can start up to 5 WRs it was important to me to build an intimidating WR corps. I picked Jones over Bryant because he has less injury issues, less off the field problems, and is in a more dynamic offense.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #1
June 25th, 2013
2.08 FFToolbox -Scott - This format places an emphasis on WR, so it took me all of about 1.2 seconds to take the WR that I have #3 on my board this season. Only 7 points separated Roddy and Julio last season and I expect Julio to surpass him this year.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #3
July 9th, 2013
2.11 Rotoexperts - Tony
