Jones had eight receiving TDs in 2011—pretty impressive for a rookie. Considering Jones had a lingering hamstring issue that caused him to miss three games and not have a target in one other game, the hype around Jones heading into 2012 is justified. His strong finish to the season certainly helps his case to be a WR1 in fantasy.
Over the last four games of the 2011 season, Jones had 20 receptions, 393 yards receiving and six TDs. In the Falcons’ first preseason game, Jones backed up his late-season push by catching six balls for 109 yards and a TD against Baltimore. The Matt Ryan/Jones connection looked strong; they could have a breakout similar to Stafford and Johnson's last year, although their numbers are unlikely to be as gaudy.
