Julio Jones and Roddy White were both limited in practice throughout the week. Despite their questionable status heading into Sunday, both receivers are expected to play in Week 2 against the Rams, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Rapoport noted the White's snaps will be limited. The veteran wideout only practiced on Friday, taking limited reps while still nursing his ankle injury. Jones was limited on Thursday and Friday with a knee injury.
Fantasy impact: Owners should be wary about getting burned by White again. His ankle injury turned out to be more severe than previously led on by the Falcons, and it was obvious after he caught two passes for 19 yards against the Saints in Week 1.
Jones is in better shape. His value won't be hindered much against the Rams, and he will likely see more targets with White ailing. It's alright to worry about both receivers, but White should be the one sitting on your bench.
