This talk will present a search for the pair production of heavy vector-like $T$ and $B$ quarks, primarily targeting $T$ quark decays to a $W$ boson and a $b$ quark. The search is based on 36 fb$^{−1 }$ of $pp$ collisions at $\sqrt{s} = 13$ TeV recorded in 2015 and 2016 with the ATLAS detector at the CERN Large Hadron Collider. Data are analyzed in the lepton plus jets final state, including at least one $b$-tagged jet and a large-radius jet identified as originating from the hadronic decay of a high-momentum $W$ boson.
