Julio Jones

Julio Jones

Week Five Analysis:
Julio Jones eclipsed the 100-yard mark for the third straight week last Sunday night, and he now faces the Jets, who just got torched by the Titans' wide receivers for over 200 receiving yards and two scores. I think they miss Darrelle Revis! Jones will most likely draw the assignment of Antonio Cromartie, but according to Pro Football Focus, Cromartie is ranked second to last in pass coverage among cornerbacks this season. New York's other starting corner, rookie Dee Milliner, missed last week's game and his status is in question for Sunday. Jones leads the NFL in receiving yards with 481, and including last year's playoffs, he scored at least one touchdown and/or went over 100 yards in nine of his last 10 games.

Week Four Analysis:

The Patriots put the Bucs' pass attack on lockdown last week, but stopping the since-benched Josh Freeman has no bearing on their ability to stop Matt Ryan and Julio Jones. Jones continued his searing-hot start last week with nine catches for 115 yards, and he now leads the NFL with 373 receiving yards. He can expect to draw Aqib Talib, who has played well with three picks this season, but despite quality coverage, you cannot doubt Julio. Including last year's postseason, he has eight touchdowns in his last nine games while averaging 98 yards.

Week Three Analysis:

Julio Jones had a monster game at home last week, but if you look across his young career, he has preferred life outside of Atlanta. Jones is averaging a mere 56 receiving yards per game at home as opposed to 98 on the road. And 70% of his career touchdowns have come as a visitor. It's serondipidous that teams passing copiously on this week's opponent, the Dolphins.They've faced 96 attempts through the air as opposed to 36 on the ground. Strong safety Reshad Jones is looking like a liability in coverage, and Miami is still projected to be hindered at cornerback with Will Davis, Jamar Taylor, and now Dimitri Patterson dealing with injuries.

Week Two Analysis:

If you watched Julio Jones last Sunday against the Saints, you saw a guy who not only caught the ball, but could also climb the ladder to get it. With Roddy White hobbled by a bum ankle, Jones delivered for his owners despite being on lockdown by the Saints secondary. Julio reeled off two plays of 20-plus yards, saw two targets inside the ten, and finished with seven catches for 76 yards and a touchdown. St. Louis allowed the third-most yards to receivers last week with 259, and Matt Ryan will surely lean on Jones more if White is as immobile as last week.

Week One Analysis:

Matt Ryan and Julio Jones weren't hangin' by the Saints' schoolyard much last season.  In two games combined, Julio was held scoreless and tallied nine catches for 123 yards. In all reality though, those stats are mainly moot.  Atlanta will face a much different team this time around.  With the return of Sean Payton and Rob Ryan now running the defense, there's another rebirth going on in New Orleans. To aid their porous secondary, they drafted safety Kenny Vaccaro fifteenth overall and signed quality corner Keenan Lewis to replace the pitiful Patrick Robinson.  Robinson was second in yards allowed last season with 1,071 and first in touchdowns with nine.  Despite all that, there's no reason to believe Jones can't go off on Sunday. These teams averaged over 47 points per game over their last six, and Julio had a monster day in the Super Dome just two years ago with128 receiving yards and a touchdown.
