Dragged down by ineptitude: Julio Jones (5 catches, 56 receiving yards: 5.6 points)

Julio Jones had his second worst fantasy output of the season (only his 3.8 points against the Texans, in a game where the starters were pulled in the third quarter, was worse). One could hardly blame him, however.

Jones has remained the only consistent option in the passing game, and the result is double and triple coverage on him all the time. Matt Ryan hasn’t proven his ability to beat a defense once they’ve taken Jones away, so that ends up letting them continue to bracket Julio.

It was another stinker for Matt Ryan in Week 12 (we’ll get to that later), and that ended up hurting his star wide receiver’s production.

Analysis: It was a bad game for Jones, but he’s such an important part of the offense that he’ll continue to be a no-brainer WR1. Of course you should keep him in the lineup for next week against the Bucs.
