Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones (knee) is listed as questionable for the team's Sunday night game against the New England Patriots in Week 4. Jones has been limited in practice for most of the season and has not missed any games, so it's fully expected he will continue to play through the injury.
Fantasy impact: Jones has previously been listed as questionable in both Week 2 and Week 3, and he still put up an impressive 20 catches for 297 yards and a touchdown over that span. Given those numbers, fantasy owners need not worry about whether he'll be able to produce against the Patriots.
Though New England has given up the fourth fewest fantasy points to wide receivers this season, Jones is a rare talent and one of the few players in the NFL that should be in your starting lineup regardless of the matchup. Especially with Roddy White (ankle) struggling to produce, despite playing through pain.
White has just seven catches for 56 yards and has yet to score a touchdown, even though he's played in every game for the Falcons this season. The hope is that White will finally turn the corner now that the season is a few weeks old, but the sure bet in Atlanta's passing game right now is definitely Jones. Fantasy owners can expect to start him in Week 4.
