There is way too much going against him, and in the 2nd half of the season last year Julio was the better WR. I'd take him and not look back.
I'm not really sure where you got your information from because Julio was not the better WR in the 2nd half of the season, especially not in a PPR league.
In the second half of the season:
White: 57 catches - 795 yards - 5 TDs in 8 games
Jones: 26 catches - 470 yards - 6 TDs in 6 games (missed the Tennessee game and I didn't count his game vs Minnesota where he had 0 receptions, 0 yards, etc.)
This breaks down to:
White: 7.1 receptions - 99.37 yards and .63 touchdowns per week which will equal about 19 points per week in a standard PPR league
Jones: 4.3 receptions - 78.33 yards and 1 touchdown per week which will equal about 18 points per week WITHOUT counting the 2 games I did not take into consideration.
Now should you factor in his two 0 point performances (1 for not playing and the other for putting up a 0 in the stat line) in the second half of the season you are looking at something like this: 3.25 receptions - 58.75 yards per game and .75 TDs per week which will come to about 12.5 points per week.
So just by looking at their statistics and their avg points per week in the second half of the season you can tell White had the better second half.
A win next week and all is forgotten.
