Julio Jones‘ debut season with the Tennessee Titans hardly went as expected. The two-time All-Pro wideout logged a career-low 43.4 receiving yards per game and didn’t record his first touchdown until Week 18.
With that said, there’s reason to believe he can still play a significant role for the Titans. He’s healthier now than he was during the regular season, and Tennessee’s first-round bye provided him more time to prepare for the playoffs.
It’s understandable to underestimate Jones based on the bulk of his performances throughout the year, but do so at your own risk. Now may be the perfect time to buy low.
Let’s take a look at our favorite Julio Jones props for Tennessee’s Divisional matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Julio Jones Divisional Prop Bets
OVER 45.5 Receiving Yards (-115) at BetMGM

Jones finished the season averaging 43.4 receiving yards per game, so we’re not asking for much more by betting on him to record more than 46 against the Bengals. That line looks even better when you consider that Jones hit the Over on this total in four of his 10 appearances this season.

Perhaps the word we’re looking for here is momentum. Jones saw a season-high in targets and touchdowns in Week 18, suggesting that Tennessee wanted to get him going as the team entered the postseason. If that’s the case and they plan to use him more in the playoffs, he should certainly be able to hit the Over here.

Julio Jones Anytime TD (+280) at BetMGM
Wager: 0.5 Unit
We’re not wagering a full unit here since the Titans still have more viable touchdown scorer options (see: A.J. Brown, Derrick Henry), but this pick could still be worth taking a chance on. As mentioned above, Jones scored his first touchdown of the season in Week 18, which could suggest higher usage moving forward.

Brown will likely demand the most attention from Cincinnati’s secondary, which could lead them to lose sight of Jones. Whether he’s able to get downfield for a score or find a way to get open in the red zone, Jones could have a decent shot at recording a touchdown.
