NEWS: Roddy White and Doug Martin both inactive for Week 3; Bobby Rainey a RB1 this week and Harry Douglas a sneaky fantasy WR3?

SMITTY: Bobby Rainey is a fantasy RB1 against a Falcons rushing defense that gives up over 150 rushing yards per game and has surrendered 5TDs through the first two weeks. Get Roddy White out of your line-up, and consider Harry Douglas as a spot play this week if you’re in need. Even if you don’t own White, Douglas is a sneaky start if desperate at your fantasy WR3. Julio Jones owners better get ready for a big Week 3! Looking for Week 3 Power Rankings?

NEWS: Roddy White (hamstring) is likely going to sit out his Week 3 Thursday night contest against Bucs.

SMITTY: This report is from PFT, and it’s suggesting he is likely out. Clearly check back, and sign up for our Smart Alerts in order to get real-time updates on this, but White owners should start getting an alternative plan in place right now. Looking for Week 3 Power Rankings?

NEWS: Julio Jones pulls in 63 yards and 1TD against Titans; Ryan tosses for 2TDs.

Falcons WR Julio Jones pulled in two passes for 63 yards and 1TD against the Titans tonight; Matt Ryan completed 18-of-23 passes for 224 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions.

SMITTY: Yep, Julio Jones looks full-go alright… So does Matt Ryan. If healthy, and there still is some risk with the foot, I fully expect Julio Jones to make a run for this year’s top scoring fantasy wide receiver. Looking for Week 1 Power Rankings?

QB Matt Ryan could be top five in yardage; Julio Jones the best WR in football?

According to ESPN’s Vaughn McClure, Falcons QB Matt Ryan will “be among the top five quarterbacks in passing yards for a third consecutive season.” As for Julio Jones, ajc.com reported Jones claiming that he feels “stronger” than ever (despite not being full-go yet).

SMITTY: If Julio Jones can enter 2014 ready to rumble, he will move to my No. 1-ranked receiver spot heading into 2014; he already is my No. 1-ranked dynasty wide receiver. Before getting hurt in Week 5 last year, Julio pulled in 41 passes, which had him on pace for 131 receptions and 1,856 yards (116 yards per-game); he is the kind of receiver that can crank out Calvin Johnson-like receptions and yardage, but with Randy Moss-like touchdown production. His availability for Week 1 is still not yet known, although things look good. Below you will find a June 17th Julio Jones/CBSSports interview, which touches on topics like Jones’ injury, his recovery, his confidence and his skill set/talent. If cleared for Week 1, we’re going to drop jaws with our Julio Jones projections, which can be found using our 2014 Draft Analyzer (which is 2014-ready!).
