Updating previous reports, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones has agreed to a revised contract that adjusts his 2018 salary. The move is cap neutral and won't affect other moves.

Falcons | Julio Jones could miss all of camp

Tue, 24 Jul 2018 05:40:11 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones is comfortable sitting out of the entire training camp, according to sources. He is seeking a contract adjustment, and the team made it clear they don't plan to give him one. His strong stance has surprised some in the organization.

Fantasy Tip: He's 29 now and constantly banged up. That's something to consider when selecting him as a WR1 in fantasy. He only caught three touchdowns last season as well, which was a career low for a full season.

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones will not receive a new deal at this point, but the Falcons have told Jones that they will work on his contract situation next offseason, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Jones may skip some time during training camp but should be on the field for Week 1. He is one of the top receivers in the NFL and should be selected in one of the first two rounds of all fantasy drafts.

Falcons | Julio Jones won't get new contract

Wed, 18 Jul 2018 22:30:40 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones was recently informed that the team had not budgeted to renegotiate Jones' contract in 2018 and have no plan to give him a raise for the upcoming season, according to The Athletic's Jeff Schultz. The Falcons did promise to renegotiate after the season, however, and hope that Jones will report to training camp on time.

Fantasy Tip: This is surely not what Jones wanted to hear, but the ball is now firmly in his court. Does he report, play out 2018 and hope the team keeps its word? Or does he sit out and try to leverage a Falcons team with championship aspirations to the negotiating table? We'll know more on July 26, which is when veterans are due to report. For the time being Jones has to be considered as a solid WR1 based on a lengthy history of top-level production.

Falcons | Julio Jones attends Matt Ryan's passing camp

Mon, 16 Jul 2018 23:33:01 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones attended QB Matt Ryan's annual offseason passing camp, per a Snapchat post by WR Calvin Ridley, who was also on hand. The other players that were in attendance included TEs Austin Hooper, Eric Saubert, WRs Justin Hardy, Mohamed Sanu, Marvin Hall, Russell Gage Jr. and Reggie Davis. Jones didn't attend the team's offseason program or mandatory minicamp and it's unknown if he'll be at training camp, which begins on Thursday, July 26.

Fantasy Tip: Jones is seeking a new contract but it doesn't look that will be an issue that potentially costs him games once the season begins in less than two months. Even though he shockingly managed only three touchdowns a year ago, Jones remains one of the true elite WR1s in the game and should be treated as such in all fantasy drafts.

Falcons | Julio Jones expected for Matt Ryan's training

Wed, 20 Jun 2018 16:55:46 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones is expected to be joining his teammates for QB Matt Ryan's annual passing camp that he will be holding in July. "There's probably about 12 (Falcons players) that are going to get together," Ryan said. "And (Jones) will certainly be a part of that."

Fantasy Tip: Jones skipped minicamp but it looks like he'll be part of this effort when Atlanta's offensive players get together. He's seeking an adjusted contract but it shouldn't prevent the star wide-out from being ready for Week 1 of the upcoming season. As usual, he'll be a WR1 entering the new campaign. Despite posting only three scores last year, Jones still put up 1,444 yards on 88 catches. The touchdowns figure to spike up.
