James Jones

James Jones

Week Ten Analysis:
James Jones didn't get to enjoy his return from injury long before Aaron Rodgers' collarbone went crunch. Like every sauced-up shareholder in bars across Green Bay, Jones will miss Rodgers immensely. But at least he'll be at full health while making due with Seneca Wallace. The Packers pay host to the Eagles this week, who are in the basement in terms of defending wide receivers, allowing over 17 receptions, 217 yards, and 1.5 touchdowns per game to the position. Philly's top cornerback Bradley Fletcher is also questionable to play, so starting Jones is justified even with the significant downgrade at quarterback for the Pack.

Week Six Analysis:

After laying a goose egg in the season opener, James Jones has compiled the 10th most yards among wideouts over the last four weeks, despite playing just three games because of a bye week. Jones has also averaged a robust 13 yards per target and has been the team leader in both receptions and red zone targets since week two. The Ravens just got burned for over 200 yards by the Dolphins wideouts and have allowed three separate receivers to total a minimum of 75 yards and a touchdown in the last two games.

Week Five Analysis:
Lots of owners got panicky on James Jones after he dropped a goose egg in Week 1, but he has been targeted 20 times in his last two games and recorded a career-high 178 receiving yards in Week 2. Jones also scored a touchdown in Week 3, and although he hasn't scored against Detroit in their last three meetings, his red zone targets have been slowly trending upward this season. Detroit has dark clouds hovering their corners with Chris Houston and Rashean Mathis both questionable to play. That would leave Dwight Bentley and Darius Slay as starters – two guys ranked bottom seven overall at cornerback according to Pro Football Focus.
