As the 2020 fantasy football season nears, it's time to examine players who could make or break your fantasy team. Here's a look at Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones and his fantasy outlook for the season ahead.
Over the past five years, Jones has led the league in yards per game more times (three) than he hasn’t (two). He didn’t last season, but he did rank sixth in receptions and second in receiving yards. Jones showed no signs of slowing down in his age-30 season and heads toward 2020 in the same situation. His target share climbed from 21.3 percent before Atlanta traded Mohamed Sanu Sr. to 27.7 percent after. Calvin Ridley’s injury helped boost that as well.
Size: 6'3, 220
Bye Week: 10
We haven’t gone wrong with Jones yet, so why go away from him now? He remains among the best early bets in PPR.
