Steelers | Jarvis Jones finding ways to get football

Wed, 28 Aug 2013 09:00:31 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers LB Jarvis Jones (chest) has shown a knack for being near the football during training camp and the preseason. He has come up with the football once in each of the first three preseason games, recovering two fumbles and coming up with a loose football after a blocked field goal attempt. "I call it lucky," Jones said. "I'm just running to the ball and trying to make plays." Jones won't have a chance to make it four straight games with a turnover, as he has been ruled out for the preseason final Thursday, Aug. 29, due to a chest injury.

Fantasy Tip: Jones could be a deep sleeper in fantasy leagues which use individual defensive players (IDPs) if his knack for finding loose footballs continues.

Steelers | Larry Foote doesn't think Jarvis Jones will start

Wed, 05 Jun 2013 09:58:13 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers LB Larry Foote thinks OLB Jason Worilds, not rookie Jarvis Jones, will start in place of James Harrison, who left via free agency. "It's going to be difficult [for Jones to start immediately]," Foote said. "There is so much technique, [knowing] where to line up, inside or outside." Foote said, however, that at least Jones played in a 3-4 as a Georgia Bulldog.

Fantasy Tip: Jones could make fantasy noise in the second half of sack-friendly IDP formats, though, so don't write him off as a late-rounds gamble.
