Jones was eighth on the list overall last season. Jones and the Falcons lost in the Super Bowl 34-28 in overtime to the New England Patriots.
Jones, 28, had 83 catches for 1,409 yards and 6 touchdowns last season, missing two games with injuries. He had a career-high 136 catches and 1,871 yards in 2015 to lead the NFL in both categories.
The only two players ahead of Jones on the list were Von Miller of the Denver Broncos, who was second, and Tom Brady of the New England Patriots, who was first.
