Julio Jones came in at No. 11 on NFL Network’s Top-100, ranking third behind only DeAndre Hopkins and Michael Thomas. Atlanta’s top weapon is expected to have another huge season in 2020, as his 1349 yards over/under ranks second among all pass-catchers available in Fan Duel’s props.
Yardage has never been an issue for Jones, though his touchdown production leaves much to be desired, at least compared to some of the other elite WR fantasy options. Still, he has consistently been a top-10 wide receiving option in fantasy dating back to 2014 and he’s a safe option in drafts this year as a high second-round pick.

- The Jamal Adams trade didn’t move the line for Seahawks’ 2020 win total, though it did increase the number of bets on Seattle’s over, according to Oddschecker.com. Since the trade, nearly 90% of the bettors have backed Seattle to win more than nine games. Adams’ arrival didn’t move the needle for the team’ division odds, as we recently passed along.
- With so many Patriots opting out, Frank Schwab of Yahoo Sports wonders if the Bills should be the favorites to win the AFC East. Fan Duel currently has New England at +115 and the Bills at +125.
- Buccaneers wideout Chris Godwin received nearly 80% of snaps in the slot last season (100-of-122) but the 2019 breakout star was actually more efficient lining up outside, as Football Outsiders’ Bryan Knowles writes. Mike Evans, who does most of his damage on the outside, was actually more efficient from the slot (just 40-of-124). It’s unlikely to change the way either is used in Tom Brady‘s first season in Tampa, though it’s interesting nonetheless.
