Julio Jones has been one of the best fantasy wide receivers anyone could own over the past several seasons, but there's much more to his dominance than just the considerable target share he gets in Atlanta.


Jones has been the most efficient fantasy wide receiver over the past six seasons, absolutely dominating the league in Yards per Route Run, a metric that takes into account the number of snaps a player went into a receiving pattern. 

As if Jones needed another stat category to further illustrate how much of a fantasy stud he is. Yet, you can't help but wonder just how incredible he'd be if he actually saw a few more red zone targets this season.

Even with a surprisingly low touchdown total for a receiver of his quality, Jones is being more than efficient with the volume he's seen to be a top fantasy receiver. It goes without saying that the man is a must-start as most leagues head into their fantasy playoffs.
