Free agent RB Felix Jones believes he still has "some gas in my motor," and hopes to play this season.

"I know something is going to happen, I have a gut feeling," Jones said. Fragile Felix turned 27 in May and rushed for 184 yards on 48 carries (3.8 YPC) across a full 16-game schedule for the Steelers last season. Experienced in blitz pickup, Jones should be able to generate some looks once injuries pile up.

Felix Jones rushed twice for 11 yards in Pittsburgh's Week 17 win over the Browns.

Jones finishes 2013 with 48 rushes for 184 yards (3.8 YPC). He added nine catches for 63 yards. Never known for his durability, Fragile Felix made appearances in all 16 games. An impending free agent going on 27 years of age, Jones should be able to latch on somewhere in 2014.

Felix Jones rushed four times for 16 yards in the Steelers' Week 10 win over the Bills.

Jones is sharing time with Jonathan Dwyer in the change-of-pace role behind Le'Veon Bell, who touched the football 25 times against the Bills. Leave Felix on the waiver wire. Bell does not have a clear-cut fantasy handcuff.
Sun, Nov 10, 2013 04:24:00 PM

Felix Jones lost a yard on his lone Week 8 carry, but caught two passes for 20 yards as the Steelers fell to the Raiders.

Jones is Le'Veon Bell's primary change-of-pace back, but would form a timeshare with Jonathan Dwyer if Bell went down. It leaves him without much value as a speculative handcuff or stash. Jones isn't worth owning in 12-team leagues.
Sun, Oct 27, 2013 07:54:00 PM

Felix Jones rushed five times for 16 yards and caught one pass for three yards in Sunday's Week 7 win over the Ravens.

Jones has solidified the change-of-pace role behind Le'Veon Bell, but that doesn't make him a handcuff. If Bell were to get hurt, Jones would be a committee back with Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman.
Sun, Oct 20, 2013 07:27:00 PM

Felix Jones rushed five times for 18 yards and caught a 15-yard pass in the Steelers' Week 6 win over the Jets.

He's being utilized as a change-of-pace back behind Le'Veon Bell, which is a role in which Jones can (somewhat) excel. He's not an NFL lead runner. Jones' 15-yard catch came on a trickeration play, catching the ball from southpaw receiver Antonio Brown. Jones is only worth rostering in deep leagues.

Felix Jones had two carries for three yards in Week 4 against Minnesota.

He added one catch for four yards. Jones was almost strictly used on kick returns and isn't a threat for carries with Le'Veon Bell now healthy. He'll likely continue to split backup duties with Jonathan Dwyer and has little upside as a fantasy handcuff.
Sun, Sep 29, 2013 06:23:00 PM

Felix Jones had seven carries for 34 yards in Sunday night's Week 3 loss to the Bears.

Jones started and received the majority of carries in the first half, but was benched after a costly third quarter fumble and did not return. He added two catches for 13 yards and averaged a solid 4.9 yards-per-carry. Even if Jones starts next week, he'll continue to split carries with Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman. Le'Veon Bell has resumed practicing and will immediately regain lead back duties when healthy.

Coach Mike Tomlin singled out Felix Jones for praise when discussing his team's scuffling offense.

Jones started Monday night's loss, rushing 10 times for 37 yards. "The running game was below the line," Tomlin said. "But I was encouraged by Felix Jones and what he'll be able to do moving forward. He knew when to bounce it and when to put his foot in the ground and get vertical." Isaac Redman -- who missed the beginning of the game after sustaining a head injury on the opening kickoff -- got just three carries and Jonathan Dwyer got one. It sounds like Tomlin is preparing to start Jones again in this week's game against the Bears. He'll be an extremely poor fantasy option.
Wed, Sep 18, 2013 08:29:00 AM

Felix Jones got the start in Monday night's Week 2 loss to the Bengals and rushed for just 37 yards on ten carries.

Isaac Redman was ticketed for the start, but he was injured on the opening kickoff and didn't return to action until the second quarter. Jones still saw plenty of action after Redman's return. Unofficially, we had Jones playing 38 snaps, Redman 18, and Jonathan Dwyer played two. Jones played on most passing downs. He's far off the fantasy radar. It's anyone's guess who will lead the backfield in touches next week against the Bears, but avoid them all.
Tue, Sep 17, 2013 12:31:00 AM

Coach Mike Tomlin says Felix Jones was held without a touch in Sunday's loss because he still isn't familiar enough with the Steelers offense.

Jones played just seven snaps, but still managed to botch a blitz pick up. With Jonathan Dwyer back in the fold behind Isaac Redman, Jones could easily go touch-less again in Week 2.
Tue, Sep 10, 2013 07:48:00 PM

Felix Jones did not record a carry or catch in Sunday's Week 1 loss to the Titans.

Jones got one snap in the first half and blew a blitz pickup. He was subsequently benched. Felix didn't return to the game until Isaac Redman got himself benched for fumbling and LaRod Stephens-Howling left with a knee injury. Jones' NFL career is on thin ice with Le'Veon Bell (foot) nearing a return.
Sun, Sep 8, 2013 04:17:00 PM

Isaac Redman confirmed he -- and not Felix Jones -- is practicing as the Steelers' first-team tailback this week.

A previous report indicated Jones would get the start, but he'd be lucky to see eight carries against the Titans. "I go out there with the first team, do the first four reps, that's normally what the starter does," said Redman following Monday's practice. "I'm just preparing as I'm the starter until they tell me otherwise." Redman hopes to receive "20, 25 carries" in Week 1, although that still seems like a pretty big long shot.
Tue, Sep 3, 2013 01:12:00 AM

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review says Felix Jones is expected to start Sunday's opener against the Titans.

We're not so sure. Jones has been with the team for two weeks, and the Steelers' staff is enamored with Isaac Redman. If Redman can get over his pinched nerve and practice all week, we suspect he's the likely starter. Jones is currently listed fourth on Pittsburgh's online depth chart. Either way, this report confirms Jones is going to have a real role in the committee. La'Rod Stephens-Howling is also in the mix. With Le'Veon Bell (foot) possibly back in a few weeks anyway, this is an incredibly low-upside fantasy situation.
