It’s semifinals weeks for most of us in the fantasy football world, and you start clinching up a little more when it comes to setting your lineups. Such is the case with the opening game of Week 15 as the Jacksonville Jaguars travel to play the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night.

Falcons receivers Roddy White and Julio Jones are certainly two players many of us are counting on to get our semifinals started off the right way, but the numbers say they might not come through.

Julio Jones is expected to suit up against the Texans and make it into the starting lineup today after battling hamstring issues the last few weeks.

Jones missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday after missing the last two weeks of football, but should be playing today for the first time since November 13th.

The questions is, do you play him?

The short answer is yes. (The even shorter answer is y).

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones missed three straight days of practice this week with the injured hamstring that forced the rookie out of the Falcons’ Week 10 game against New Orleans. It was the same hamstring injury that had made Jones a questionable play leading up to the Saints game. And now his availability today against the Tennessee Titans is highly in doubt.

Hamstrung by Julio Jones this week? Let Falcon fly in Week 10.

Fantasy owners are wondering what to do with the Atlanta rookie. Is he a reliable start?

Atlanta Falcons receiver Julio Jones jumped back on the fantasy radar after his two-touchdown, 131-yard performance in a quarter and change against Indianapolis last week.

However, he did not come out unscathed from the Colts game. He has again battled the hamstring injury this week, being limited in practice on both Thursday and Friday. He is probable for Sunday’s game against AFC South rival New Orleans.

It leaves fantasy owners wondering what to do with the rookie. Is he a reliable start?
