Coming off a big game last week against the Packers, Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones is turning into a game time decision for this weekend’s game against the Steelers.

Jones caught 11 passes for 259 yards and a touchdown against the Packers after lighting up the Cardinals for 10 catches, 189 yards and a touchdown the week before.

The Falcons have been slow to provide any details on the status of Jones’ hip and since it is already Friday we will be left to guess from here.

Fantasy Impact: If Jones is active then he is a must start against a aging and slow Steelers secondary. Missing practice is not ideal in any case but Jones knows the Falcons offense and should have little trouble filling his typical role if he can go. The Falcons are 5-8 on the season but still in the playoff hunt.
