Falcons WR Julio Jones taps out early due to ankle injury

We knew coming into Sunday that even if Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones @juliojones_11 did play against the Cardinals, his injured ankle wouldn't be 100 percent and his snaps would be limited. He gave it a go for the majority of the game, but by the fourth quarter, he couldn't do much. Jones hobbled off the field in the fourth, perhaps re-aggravating his injured ankle and did not return. He finished Week 11 with three catches for 33 yards, Jones' least productive outing since Week 4.

Fantasy Analysis:

Jones reportedly signaled "I'm done" as he was coming off the field. We'll update his status throughout the week, but expect Jones to miss a good amount of practice time during the upcoming week at the very least. His owners should keep their fingers crossed that he can play in Week 12 when the Falcons take on the Buccaneers' putrid pass defense. If Jones is out, it obviously hurts the entire offense, but Harry Douglas @HDouglas83 would see an increase in targets. He caught five of his six targets for 48 yards against Arizona.
