2017 FANTASY FOOTBALL ISSUES: NO PUP FOR JULIO JONES (FOOT)

Atlanta Falcons wideout Julio Jones will NOT begin training camp on the PUP list as his chronic foot injury has not been an issue for weeks.  Already having had multiple surgeries on his feet and had a bunion removed back in March as well, Jones is positioned to take part in full team activities right off the bat in camp.  It is all well and good that Jones is healthy but he represents one of the biggest injury risks in 2017 fantasy football given his mid-first round grade and that needs to be factored in before you make the plunge there.  On talent alone, Jones is right there with Odell Beckham Jr. and Antonio Brown and comes off another huge campaign in 2016 where he caught 83 balls for 1,409 yards and 6 scores.  What is interesting about Jones is that for all the passes that he catches, he just once on caught double-digits touchdowns in six NFL seasons.  Yes it is a minimal matter but it does keep him behind Brown and Beckham whne weighing the first round wideouts.
