Falcons need to make sure Julio Jones gets the ball more


The Falcons opened the season 3-0 but they have lost two straight home games against weaker opponents, the Bills and the Dolphins and part of that has been because of the decreased contribution of star wide receiver Julio Jones, who has just one red zone target this season.
Jones has zero touchdowns and even though he's getting catches, he was only targeted seven times against the Dolphins, a poor, unacceptable total for arguably one of the best wide receivers in the league. 
Falcons coach Dan Quinn knows that and this is what he told ESPN's Vaughn McClure when asked if he was happy with Jones' level of involvement in the offense lately: 
"No." "No I'm not."
The expectations for Jones before the season were massive but his numbers have been underwhelming and the same can be said about the Falcons' season as a whole, particularly in their last two games. Looselines Sportsbook has the Falcons at +1000 to win Super Bowl LII and at +500 to win the NFC.
