James Jones caught 6-of-11 targets for 109 yards and a touchdown Week 11 against the Vikings.
After being held without a catch last week, the Packers funneled targets to Jones early. He saw eight targets before halftime, but was only able to haul in three passes for 41 yards. Jones was better in the second half, catching all three of his targets including a 27-yard touchdown strike from Aaron Rodgers in the fourth quarter. He made a diving catch down the left sideline to set up that touchdown. Jones was creeping close to droppable territory before this performance, but he should return WR3 value the rest of the way with the Packers offense starting to heat up. Nov 22 - 7:50 PM

James Jones could not haul in either of his two targets Week 10 against the Lions.

Jones was nonexistent most of the game as Aaron Rodgers peppered Davante Adams with targets. He did have an opportunity to save his fantasy day on a target inside the end zone, but he dropped the touchdown. The target-Adams plan failed miserably, so perhaps Jones will be more involved against the Vikings next week. He will be a low-floor WR3 in that matchup.
Nov 15 - 5:59 PM

James Jones (quad) is probable for Week 10.

Jones was added to the injury report Thursday, but got in two limited practices. He has just eight targets over the last two weeks with Davante Adams healthy. Jones is a boom-or-bust WR3.
Nov 13 - 4:51 PM

James Jones was added to the Packers' injury report on Thursday with a quad issue, getting in a limited practice.

Jones apparently tweaked his leg in practice. For now, the boom-or-bust WR3 should be considered questionable for Sunday's home matchup with the Lions. His status will be updated on Friday.
Nov 12 - 4:50 PM

James Jones caught 2-of-6 targets for 57 yards in Green Bay's Week 9 loss to the Panthers.

The six targets were actually the most Jones has seen in four games, but were good for only fifth on the team. Jones got off to a sizzling start, but his star has dimmed with Davante Adams' healthy return. Jones is on pace for 44/966/12, but those yardage and touchdown totals could be hard to reach. Jones has settled in as a boom-or-bust WR3.
Nov 8 - 6:07 PM

James Jones managed one catch for two yards in the Packers' Sunday night Week 8 loss to the Broncos.

He had just two targets. Jones played behind Davante Adams and didn't make his only catch until the fourth quarter. With a Week 9 matchup against the Panthers, Jones isn't more than a mid-range WR3.
Nov 2 - 12:56 AM

James Jones caught 2-of-5 targets for 30 yards and one touchdown in the Packers' Week 6 win over the Chargers.

Aaron Rodgers only completed 16-of-29 passes on the day against a tough San Diego secondary. Jones is Rodgers' preferred red-zone option, and the two hooked up on a back-shoulder fade for an eight-yard touchdown in the third quarter, beating CB Brandon Flowers. It was Jones' sixth touchdown in as many games. The WR3 gets a tough test against Denver coming out of the Week 7 bye.
Oct 18 - 9:18 PM

James Jones (hamstring) is probable for Week 6.

The Packers limited Jones in practice, but his status was never in doubt. Davante Adams (ankle) is questionable to return this week and could be held out through Green Bay's Week 7 bye. Jones is a top-30 receiver play.
Oct 16 - 5:12 PM

James Jones (hamstring) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

Jones' status isn't in doubt. He'll be a WR2 against the Chargers.
Oct 15 - 6:20 PM

James Jones (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

The Packers have been limiting Jones in practice, but his Week 6 status isn't in doubt. Even with Davante Adams a candidate to return, Jones is a top-30 receiver play for Week 6.
Oct 14 - 6:02 PM

James Jones caught 2-of-3 targets for 77 yards and a touchdown in Green Bay's Week 5 win over the Rams.

On a day where Aaron Rodgers managed a modest 19 completions for 241 yards against the Rams' stout defense, Jones made the biggest play of the day in the third quarter, turning a crossing route into a 65-yard touchdown. Burning through the open field, the 31-year-old Jones capped things off by making an acrobatic dive for the pylon. At this point, Jones might keep his WR2 value even once Davante Adams returns. At the very least, he'll be a top 30 option against the Chargers in Week 6. That's conservative, obviously.
Oct 11 - 4:56 PM

James Jones (hamstring) is listed as probable for Week 5.

Jones turned in a limited practice week, but he'll be in the starting lineup against the Rams. He remains an underrated every-week WR2 in fantasy.
Oct 9 - 9:15 PM

James Jones (hamstring) remained limited at Thursday's practice.

Randall Cobb (shoulder) was also limited. Both will play Sunday against the Rams. With Davante Adams sidelined by an ankle injury, Jones has averaged a remarkable 118.5 yards per game over his last two contests.
Oct 8 - 4:44 PM

James Jones (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Week 4 was Jones' first game without a touchdown catch this season, though he still posted a 5-96 line on six targets. He'll be fine for the Week 5 tilt with the Rams, but is more of a WR3 against St. Louis' stingier pass defense.
Oct 7 - 4:37 PM

James Jones caught 5-of-6 targets for 96 yards in the Packers' Week 4 win over the 49ers.

Jones was the Packers' leading receiver on a day where Randall Cobb appeared bothered by his troublesome shoulder. Although he didn't score, Jones made an unreal catch in the third quarter, hauling in a 38-yard pass down the left sideline by displaying amazing feet. Reunited with Aaron Rodgers, it's like Jones' dismal 2014 in Oakland never happened. The 31-year-old wideout is on course for 68/1,268/16. We'd expect the latter two paces to slacken, but Jones is firmly on the WR2 radar for the time being. He's moving ahead of Davante Adams on the depth chart.
