Mostly Nfl Notes: Talking Julio Jones, C.j. Anderson And A Look Around The League


Recommended Posts

Julio Jones has the most receiving yards per game in NFL history. He’s 26 years old, whereas Roddy White is soon to be 34 and has averaged just 816.0 yards over the past two years, as he’s clearly in the decline phase of his career. There’s some concern about Jones’ injury history with his feet, but he has legitimate upside to be the No. 1 fantasy receiver this year. His 9.8 YPT were the second-highest among those who saw at least 145 targets last season. For some reason, Jones saw just four targets inside the 10 (teammate Harry Douglas was given six), which ranked No. 36 among all wide receivers (behind Jermaine Kearse, Riley Cooper and Nate Washington, among others).

So if Atlanta starts properly utilizing the 6-3, 220 wide receiver in the red zone, a return to double-digit touchdowns should be in store (it’s not like they have a big RB to use at the goal line). And the NFC South should feature a bunch of shootouts. Jones is going to be an absolute monster in 2015. Go get him.

In heard Terry Robiskle give an explanation of why JJ didnt have as many touches in the red zone as one was think. He said something to the effect that the defense always keyed in on JJ in the red zone so they mostly targeted someone else; almost as if they were using JJ as a decoy. - I'm paraphrasing.
