Fantasy Alert: Julio Jones, Austin Hooper to Return from Injuries vs. Panthers

The Atlanta Falcons received good news Friday when head coach Dan Quinn announced receiver Julio Jones (shoulder) and tight end Austin Hooper (knee) would play in Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers after missing last week's contest due to injuries.

Of course, that news is music to the ears of fantasy football owners who are looking to bring home a championship.

When healthy, Jones has proved to be one of the top wideouts in all of football. The six-time Pro Bowler is closing in on his seventh 1,000-yard season in eight years, as he has 64 receptions for 950 yards and four touchdowns in 11 appearances this season.
