Julio Jones last suited up in Week 9 before hitting the Injured Reserve list with a hamstring injury. Jones' inability to stay healthy has led to a disappointing 2021 campaign so far.

However, the latest injury update on Jones gives his fantasy outlook a much-needed boost ahead of Week 14.

Jones is expected to be activated off of IR on Saturday, allowing him a chance to be the Tennessee Titans' top pass-catcher with A.J. Brown still sidelined.

It's been far from the season managers hoped out of Jones. He's averaging 5.2 targets, 3.5 receptions and 56.0 yards per game this year, though most of his damage came in Week 2 when he grabbed 6 receptions for 128 yards.

Health has been a serious issue for Jones, who's only appeared in six games so far. Tennessee's run-heavy offense, which ranks No. 3 in rushing attempts per game, has also made it hard for non-Brown receivers to make a constant impact.

Still, Jones is the most talented receiver Tennessee has at the moment, and he could absorb some of Brown's 7.8 targets per contest when he returns.

Jones draws the perfect matchup in Week 14, facing a Jacksonville Jaguars defense that's allowing the sixth-most PPR points to WRs this season. He warrants at least FLEX consideration given his opponent and potential work as the Titans' No. 1 wideout.
