What Julio Jones and Roddy White Had to Say About All the Drops
Fantasy Football owners weren’t happy, surely quarterback Matt Ryan wasn’t happy, and wide receivers Julio Jones and Roddy White weren’t happy about last week’s drops, so here is what Jones had to say, (via NFL.com).
I’m supposed to catch everything. We had a few drops last week and we take it upon ourselves, me and Roddy, we hold ourselves accountable for those dropped passes. The defending didn’t have nothing to do with it, it was just a lack of focus and concentration by us.
So Julio didn’t speak up just for himself, but he threw his brother Roddy White under the bus as well. Week 6 was a mostly a bust for Jones who rewarded fantasy players with just 10.90 points, catching only four of his 12 targets and thankfully a touchdown. White was worse catching only three of six targets scoring zero touchdowns. Week 6 had Jones ranking 41st and White 64th among their fellow wide receivers in fantasy points. Not cool.

This is what White had to say about his season thus far reported by ESPN (via NFL.com)
Not one of my favorable years that I’m having. But I’ve got to turn my game around for our team to start playing better. I’m a leader on this team, and I haven’t been going out there and playing like Roddy White football.

I’m not sure when “Roddy White” football will show up, but he’s certainly not worth starting until we see a sign. Jones remains a start, however, the Falcons face the Ravens in Week 7 a defense who has allowed opposing offenses to score an average of just 16 points per game.
