Erik Jones finished worse than he started in all three races of 2015, but that did not make him a bad value overall. With the exception of a 28-position fall from 12th to 40th in his inaugural start at Kansas, he slipped only a little in the last two races. That precipitous drop contributed to an average place-differential of -15.33.

In his last two attempts—driving in relief for the suspended Matt Kenseth—Jones was easily the best value in most games with a 12th in the AAA Texas 500 and a 19th at Phoenix International Raceway.

Erik Jones races impressively at Texas Motor Speedway in relief for the suspended Matt Kenseth. He qualified sixth and finished 12th on the lead lap of the AAA 500.

Jones was running in the top five at Kansas Speedway in relief for Kyle Busch in his Cup debut this May, but he showed remarkable patience in this, his second complete race. He might have backed away from the edge slightly and that kept him from earning a top-10, but he was easily one of the best bargains in all fantasy games.

Erik Jones had one of the best Fridays of his life. He qualified sixth in the No. 20 DeWalt Tools Ford that is normally driven by Matt Kenseth before going out to win the Craftsman Truck Series race.

As a late addition to the lineup, Jones will be overlooked by much of the competition in games where he is active. He qualified Kyle Busch’s No. 18 12th at Kansas Speedway this spring and was running with the leaders before he crashed. If he learned a lesson about driving over his head, he could easily finish in the top 15 this week and be one of the game’s best values.

Erik Jones will drive the Joe Gibbs Racing No. 20 this weekend for the suspended Matt Kenseth, according to a press release from the race team.

Jones finished the Bristol spring race for Denny Hamlin when that driver suffered neck spasms and the tandem finished 26th. He also filled in for the injured Kyle Busch this May at Kansas Speedway and ran with the leaders before a late-race accident sent him home 40th.
