Packers | Uncertain if James Jones returns

Wed, 03 Feb 2016 22:02:59 -0800

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent WR James Jones will be 32 this offseason, and typically general manager Ted Thompson avoids receivers of that advanced age. However, Jones played 1,205 out of 1,316 snaps (91.6 percent) while leading the team in receiving yardage (971) with 17.8 yards per reception. He is also a favorite of QB Aaron Rodgers.

Fantasy Tip: Jones looked good and was a tremendous last-minute addition for the team, or the receivers unit would have been a real disaster once Jordy Nelson went down. Jones will get paid somewhere next season, but his best years have been in the Green Bay organization and he has looked lost without Rodgers.

Packers | James Jones in for tough matchup?

Thu, 14 Jan 2016 15:51:24 -0800

Green Bay Packers WR James Jones could be matched up with Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson in the divisional round Saturday, Jan. 16. Peterson allowed a league-best 45.6 passer rating in coverage. CB Justin Bethel was targeted a league-high 22 times in Weeks 16 and 17, and Packers QB Aaron Rodgers threw at Bethel a season-high 14 times in their first matchup, resulting in seven catches for 75 yards and an interception.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) lacks the speed and physicality to win a matchup with Peterson, making him a very tough sell in this one on FantasyScore.

Packers | James Jones tops in receiving

Sun, 10 Jan 2016 18:54:00 -0800

Green Bay Packers WR James Jones posted seven receptions for a team-best 81 yards in the NFC Wild Card Game Sunday, Jan. 10, against the Washington Redskins. He was also targeted a team-high 11 times.

Fantasy Tip: Jones has made big grabs for the Packers all season long, and he really seems to shine in the postseason. He is a solid FantasyScore WR2/3 for next week's tilt against the Arizona Cardinals.

Packers | James Jones hits century mark

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 22:54:51 -0800

Green Bay Packers WR James Jones posted four receptions for 102 yards in the Week 17 game against the Minnesota Vikings. He was targeted 13 times.

Fantasy Tip: Jones wrapped up the regular season with 880 yards, three 100-yard games and a total of eight touchdowns, re-emerging as a solid low-end WR2 or WR3/flex play in FantasyScore. He faces a difficult matchup against the Washington Redskins next Sunday, but he is still an attractive play.

Packers | James Jones targeted 11 times

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 20:37:13 -0800

Green Bay Packers WR James Jones posted five receptions for a team-best 46 yards in the Week 16 game against the Arizona Cardinals. He was targeted 11 times.

Fantasy Tip: Jones fired out of the chute with six touchdowns in his first six games, but managed just two scores over his past nine games. He is nothing more than a WR3 or flex option at this point.

Packers | James Jones burns former team

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 17:48:49 -0800

Green Bay Packers WR James Jones finished with six catches for a team-high 82 yards and a touchdown in a 30-20 win over the Oakland Raiders in Week 15.

Fantasy Tip: As he showed against Oakland, Jones will deliver an occasional big game, but he will also deliver his share of duds. He has finished with 30 yards or less in five of his last nine games, and he is a roll-of-the-dice play at FantasyScore.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers, passing game struggling

Fri, 27 Nov 2015 04:58:22 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers was just 22-for-42 for 202 yards with a touchdown and interception in the Week 12 loss to the Chicago Bears Thursday, Nov. 26, and he continued to struggle with his chemistry and timing with his receivers. Green Bay's receivers continued to struggle with press coverage and drops. WR James Jones had zero catches on six targets and WR Davante Adams had just two grabs on 11 targets.

Fantasy Tip: The Packers running game and Eddie Lacy looked good for the second straight week, but the passing game continues to struggle. The lack of speed in Rodgers' aerial targets is killing them. Right now, no daily gamer will want to pay up for Rodgers or his receivers.

Packers | James Jones breaks out of slump

Sun, 22 Nov 2015 18:14:25 -0800

Green Bay Packers WR James Jones had six catches for 109 yards and a touchdown in a 30-13 win over the Minnesota Vikings in Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: Jones had averaged just 22.3 receiving yards over his previous four games, but he was much more involved against the Vikings. Still, history suggests Jones will remain a touchdown-dependent option at FantasyScore most weeks.

Packers | James Jones listed as probable

Fri, 20 Nov 2015 13:17:45 -0800

Green Bay Packers WR James Jones (quadriceps) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 20, and is listed as probable for the Week 11 game against the Minnesota Vikings. The Packers did not practice Friday, so his practice designation is an estimate.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has caught two passes or fewer in each of the last five games and did not catch any passes last week. Owners may want to look for other options to use in their lineups.

Packers | Eddie Lacy, James Jones practice

Thu, 19 Nov 2015 15:28:57 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (groin) and WR James Jones (quadriceps) were both full participants in practice Thursday, Nov. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) could finally be moving past his injury, but he'll come off the bench in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings. Avoid him on FantasyScore for now. Jones ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has fallen off of late and doesn't have more than two catches in a game since Oct. 4. With him slowing down, it's best to avoid him on FantasyScore.
