News: Jones (illness) had five catches on a team-high 13 targets for 68 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Browns. Impact: Jones has now been targeted 35 times in the last three games, though he's finished with fewer than 70 yards in two contests during that span. The Falcons' passing attack has been a bit muted this season, as Jones has only four touchdowns on the year, with Sunday's score his first since Week 3. Things are looking up, however, as the Falcons will face off against a Cardinals defense in Week 13 that is allowing the fourth-most passing yards per game this season.(RotoWire, )

News: Jones (illness) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Browns.   Impact: Jones missed some practice time earlier in the week while dealing with an illness, but he's good to go Sunday against the Browns, who figure to try to contain Jones with cornerback Joe Haden.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Nov 21, 2014
News: As expected, Jones (illness) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Browns, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports. Impact: Jones was back at practice Friday and should be good to go for Sunday's tilt with Cleveland. Despite the presence of Joe Haden, numerous opposing receivers (Antonio Brown, Mike Evans, Steve Smith) have had big games against the Browns this season. Roll with Jones as you normally would.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Nov 21, 2014
News: Jones (illness) returned to practice Friday, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports. Impact: The Falcons will release their official injury designations after practice, but Jones' presence Friday indicates that he is likely headed for a "probable" tag heading into Sunday's game against the Browns.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Nov 20, 2014
News: According to coach Mike Smith, Jones will play against Cleveland even if he doesn't practice on Friday. Impact: Jones, who ranks fourth in the league with 67 catches, has missed the last two days with an illness.(STATS, 5:54pm)
Thu. Nov 20, 2014
News: Coach Mike Smith expects Jones to practice Friday and believes the wideout will suit up Sunday versus the Browns, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports. Impact: Clearly, Jones' return to drills Friday would provide total confidence that he's in line to play in Week 12. As a result, the final injury report of the week should confirm (or delay) such a sentiment.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Nov 20, 2014
News: Jones (illness) was not spotted at practice Thursday, ESPN.com reports. Impact: The report notes that Jones, who missed practice on Wednesday, should be available for Sunday's game against the Browns, a notion that would be supported by the wideout's return to practice -- in any capacity -- on Friday.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Nov 19, 2014
News: Jones didn't practice Wednesday due to an illness, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports. Impact: If Jones had to come down with an illness, midweek is certainly the best time to do so. The severity of the bug is unknown, but his practice participation could be hindered for the entirety of the week.(RotoWire, )

News: Jones caught 6-of-11 targets for 59 yards in Sunday's 19-17 win at Carolina. Impact: Jones played second fiddle to Roddy White, who caught 8-of-12 targets for 75 yards and a touchdown Sunday. The explosive Jones hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 3, and he's not seeing many deep targets because Matt Ryan normally has to get rid of the ball quickly, due to a shaky offensive line situation. In any event, Jones will likely make some big plays over the next few weeks, and his next opportunity will come at home against the Browns in Week 12.(RotoWire, )

News: Jones finished with eight catches for 119 yards in a win over Tampa Bay on Sunday. Impact: It was his fourth 100-year receiving effort of the season, but first since Oct. 5. He hasn't reached the end zone since Week 3.(STATS, 4:18pm)
Nov 9, 2014
News: Jones had eight catches on 11 targets for 119 yards Sunday against the Buccaneers. Impact: Jones broke a three-game streak with fewer than 70 receiving yards, though he's now gone six straight games without a touchdown. The targets are there to make an impact, but Jones isn't getting any red zone looks, which leaves him needing long scores to make a real fantasy impact. Up next is a Panthers defense, who have allowed the fifth-most receiving touchdowns this season.(RotoWire, )
