Fantasy Analysis | 1416790428
Roddy White continues to outperform Julio Jones
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Though Julio Jones found the end zone finally Week 12 against Cleveland, giving him his first touchdown since Week 3 against Tampa Bay, he was once again outperformed by fellow Falcons wide receiver Roddy White -- not so much in terms of Fantasy points, since touchdowns have so much of the say in that, but certainly in terms of sustainable production. While Jones had five catches for 68 yards, White led the team with nine for 96.

And it's hardly a new development. Over the Falcons' last six games, Jones has averaged 5.3 catches for 71.3 yards. White, meanwhile, has averaged 6.7 catches for 74.8 yards -- and with the touchdowns to boot.

Maybe the comparison between Jones and White is pointless in Fantasy since few owners would honestly be deciding between the two, but the simple acknowledgment that White is the better play right now should change your perspective on both. If White is a No. 2 wide receiver in Fantasy, then Jones is no better than that. Likewise, if you'd never consider sitting Jones in Fantasy, then you probably shouldn't consider sitting White anymore either.
