News: Jones (ankle) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Falcons. Impact: The soreness in Jones' ankle continues to linger, but he is good to go this week after practicing fully Thursday and Friday. He has a tough matchup this week, however, squaring off against a Lions defense that ranks sixth in the league against the pass and has given up just seven passing touchdowns in seven games this season.(RotoWire, )

News: Jones (ankle) practiced fully Thursday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Impact: Jones, who was limited on Wednesday, thus appears on track to draw a probable designation in advance of Sunday's game against the Lions.(RotoWire, )

News: Jones (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice, the Falcons' official site reports. Impact: Last week, Jones progressed from limited practices Wednesday and Thursday to a full session and a probable designation for Week 7, with such a scenario likely to occur again in advance of Sunday's game against the Lions.(RotoWire, )

News: Jones (ankle) had five catches on eight targets for 56 yards in Sunday's 29-7 loss at Baltimore. Impact: Jones caught a 10-yard screen at one point, in which he broke several tackles and showed a good burst. He also had a 24-yard grab, but was otherwise silent. Meanwhile, Roddy White busted out for the first time this season, grabbing nine passes on 15 targets for 100 yards and a touchdown. Other than White, the entire Falcons' offense struggled, however, so we'll give Jones a mulligan. It might get tougher for him next week, facing a strong Lions' secondary in London.(RotoWire, )

News: Jones (ankle) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against Baltimore, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports. Impact: Jones played through the ankle injury last week, and although he only managed four catches, he was targeted 12 times and remains Matt Ryan's favorite receiver by a large margin. He should receive plenty of opportunities again Sunday against Baltimore's 27th-ranked pass defense.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Oct 16, 2014
News: Jones (ankle) was limited in Thursday's practice, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports. Impact: The Falcons are opting to lessen Jones' workload this week in an effort to have him and his gimpy ankle as healthy as possible for Sunday's matchup with Baltimore. Barring a setback in Friday's practice, Jones remains on target to start.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Oct 15, 2014
News: Jones (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports. Impact: After recording a season-low four receptions for 68 yards this past Sunday against the Bears, Jones' workload is predictably capped to begin the week of preparation for a Week 7 matchup at Baltimore. Still, with an average of 11.5 targets per game this season, he remains a must-start in all formats when active.(RotoWire, )

News: Jones (ankle) is still battling a sore ankle, though he's expected to play Sunday versus the Ravens, Vaughn McClure of ESPN reports. Impact: Jones was held to season-lows in catches (four) and yards (68) Sunday against Chicago, and it's difficult to gauge just how much the ankle is affecting his play. He could rest a bit during practice this week, but at this point, all signs point to the wideout being on the field against Baltimore.(RotoWire, )

News: Jones had four catches for 68 yards Sunday. Impact: Jones, who added a one-yard carry that did little to help fantasy owners, has gone three straight games without finding the end zone.(STATS, 2:51pm)

News: Jones (ankle) is listed as active for Sunday's game against Chicago. Impact: Feel free to roll with Jones as you normally would on Sunday, on the heels of his 11-catch effort in Week 5.(RotoWire, )
Oct 12, 2014
News: Jones (ankle) had four receptions on 12 targets for 68 yards in Sunday's loss to Chicago. Impact: Jones had a tough time shaking free from an aggressive Bears' defense, posting a season low in both receptions and yardage. His ankle injury didn't appear to be a factor in his performance Sunday, however. He'll have a tough test on the road next week, facing a stingy Ravens' pass defense.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Oct 10, 2014
News: Jones (ankle) is probable for Sunday's game against Chicago. Impact: Jones practiced all week, including a full practice Friday, so his injury seems close to a non-issue. Both Chicago and Atlanta have been friendly to opposing offenses, giving reason to suspect a looming shootout between the Bears and Falcons. This looks like it might be one of the better matchups Jones sees this year.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Oct 6, 2014
News: Jones had 11 catches for 105 yards against the Giants on Sunday. Impact: Jones leads the NFL with 40 catches and 110.4 yards per game. He could be in for another big game next week against a shaky Bears defense.(STATS, 3:25pm)
