News: Jones torched the Tampa Bay defense to the tune of nine receptions for 161 yards and two touchdowns in Thursday's 56-14 victory. Impact: Jones was targeted on 11 of Matt Ryan's 24 pass attempts as the Falcons looked just fine without Roddy White (hamstring). Jones' second touchdown was a beauty, with the superstar wide receiver making an incredibly difficult over-the-shoulder catch near the front right corner of the end zone for a 40-yard gain. He looks all but unstoppable this season, having piled up 23 receptions for 365 yards and three touchdowns through three games. Next up is a seemingly decent Week 4 matchup in Minnesota.(RotoWire, )

News: Jones (ankle) is active Thursday against the Buccaneers. Impact: Although Jones' status really wasn't in question this week, the absence of Roddy White (hamstring) from the Falcons' receiving corps Thursday is a boon to Jones' prospects. Currently, he ranks in a tie for fifth in the NFL with 22 targets through two games, which is sure to experience a healthy increase this week.(RotoWire, )

News: Jones (ankle), who practiced in full Wednesday, was listed as probable for Thursday's game versus the Buccaneers, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Impact: With back-to-back full practices behind him, Jones is a guarantee to take the field in Week 3. Because fellow wideout Roddy White (hamstring) is questionable after missing practice all week, Jones will be the primary focus of Matt Ryan, with Harry Douglas also present to take in targets.(RotoWire, )

News: Jones (ankle) was a full participant at Tuesday's practice, ESPN reports. Impact: Jones was limited during Monday's practice, but increased his activity level with Thursday's game against the Buccaneers drawing closer. After picking up a seemingly minor ankle pain last Sunday, Jones is expected to play Thursday and should continue to be heavily targeted in the Falcons' offense. Fantasy owners should deploy Jones as they normally would this week.(RotoWire, )

News: Jones was a limited participant in Monday's practice due to an ankle injury. Impact: Jones and his 13 targets once again carried the majority of the offensive load in Sunday's loss to the Bengals, but he seems to have suffered an ankle injury at some point during that contest. The Falcons have a quick turnaround with a Thursday night game this week, so the situation is worth another checkup heading into the early matchup. Also worth noting is that fellow wideout Roddy White missed Monday's practice due to a hamstring injury, and if that ailment limits him in any way Thursday night, look for Jones to have an even bigger role than usual in the Falcons' offensive game plan.(RotoWire, )

News: Jones caught seven passes for 88 yards with one score Sunday for the Falcons. Impact: Jones is up to 204 yards through the air and looks healthy for his fantasy owners.(STATS, 11:14pm)
Sep 14, 2014
News: Jones caught seven passes on 13 targets for 88 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Bengals. Impact: Jones' touchdown came in the fourth quarter to pull the Falcons within 14 points, but they wouldn't get any closer by the end of the game. After missing most of last season with a foot injury, Jones has started off this one with a bang, posting 116 yards in Week 1 and then scoring a touchdown in Week 2. He'll look to continue his fine play next Sunday against the Bucs.(RotoWire, )

News: Jones grabbed all seven of the passes thrown his way for 116 yards in Sunday's overtime win against New Orleans. Impact: Jones looked awesome, although he did lose a fumble near the goal line at one point in the first half. The exciting wide receiver showed his normal burst, so last season's foot injury doesn't appear to be a concern.(RotoWire, )

News: Jones, who is bouncing back from a foot issue that limited him to five games last season, indicated that he is "100 percent" and operating with "no limitations" in advance of Week 1, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Impact: Supporting that notion is the Jones is not listed on the Falcons' practice participation/injury report in advance of Sunday's game against the Saints. Neither are fellow wideouts Roddy White or Harry Douglas, thus ensuring that the Falcons' top trio at the position will be available in Week 1.(RotoWire, )
