Indianapolis Colts

Does signing Matt Jones hurt Mack & Gore?


The Indianapolis Colts claimed Matt Jones off waivers after he was cut by the Washington Redskins. Matt was a 3rd rounder 3 seasons ago by the Redskins, and Marlon Mack was a 4th rounder this year for the Colts. The hype train was rolling down the tracks for Mack all preseason as he brought an element that the Colts haven't had in their backfield in ages, explosion! Personally, I believe this move is a sign that the Colts know Frank Gore is old and has lost some of his gusto, but the front office also is aware the Colts are going to have to run the ball a lot with Tolzien prior to Luck's return.

Fantasy Goo: Marlon Mack's touches just took a hit, but I strongly believe that Gore's touches get hurt more. It will take Matt a bit to figure out the playbook, and if Mack and Gore get it going early in the season Jones may just be some much-needed depth at RB. I've always liked Matt as a player, but he's a fumble away from "oh shit", even on his new team.

Colts Claim Former Washington RB Matt Jones on Waivers


PK and I really like Matt Jones in Indy if he can put the fumbling issues behind him. He and Marlon Mack could be solid tandem when Frank retires.

Fantasy Goo: This is pretty much a dynasty-only consideration at this point, and we really have no idea if he can stay on the roster. Only look for Jones in the deepest of dynasty leagues, but keep him on your watch-list everywhere, he’s got the talent if he can hold onto the ball.

Matt Jones Still Plauged with Drops


Matt Jones has fumbled 3 times in the last 5 games. That brings his total to 8 fumbles in 270 touches. It undoubtedly cost him some FF Points in Week 7.

Fantasy goo: While Chris Thompson is a decent flex play if the matchup is right in PPR, this could very well be the opportunity that Rob Kelley needs to pull a Steve Miller Band, and "go on take the money and run". Chris Thompson's looks have increased in each of the last 3 weeks. The safe be is certainly Thompson, especially in PPR. Just watch out for the playoffs. From weeks 12-16, the team only has 1 home game and that is against Carolina.

Jones Listed as Questionable But says he is 100% Ready to go


Jones, listed as questionable, did indeed run a full practice at the Saturday walk through. Jones himself, has claimed to be 100% ready to go and it appears the Questionable tag was just a precaution.

Fantasy Goo: I think Kelley will get some work, but Jones should get the majority of the 1st and 2nd down load. Thompson is indeed the pass-catcher out of the backfield. Any one of these Redskins backs could make a leap this season. Even though this is a Monday game, I would not worry about Jones playing, he should get at least 70% of the early down work.

Ready to Roll


‏@Rich_TandlerCSN Matt Jones' yellow jersey is gone.

Fantasy Goo: Matt Jones was touted as the man when they let Alfred Morris go. During this preseason Matt Jones sprained his AC joint. There was lots of talk about how sneaky good Rob Kelley is shaping up to be in case Matt Jones could not take the field for week 1. However, Matt Jones should be there to carry the heavy lifting. Rob Kelley and Chris Thompson should see the field as well. Matt Jones may be partially forgotten as of week 1 so; a big performance will be needed to make owners consider using him in the future weeks ahead.

Matt Jones Sprains AC Joint In His Shoulder


Matt Jones sprained the AC joint in his left shoulder during an awkward tackle in Friday's preseason game against the Jets.

Fantasy Goo: It's good news after seeing him get up in pain and trot off the field holding his arm in an awkward position. An injury like this can take anywhere from 1-6 weeks to heal so he is probably done for the preseason but should be good for the regular season. Continue to monitor the situation closely and you may want to roster Rob Kelley as he came in the game and stayed in the game for the rest of the half.

Marshall Looking Good in Redskins Backfield


Marshall was touted by many as he came to Georgia. However, the back fell through the talented cracks of Chubb and Gurley during his stint as a Bulldog. Ultimately, it was the knee injuries that had most concerned. He silenced many critics by putting up a 4.31 at the combine. Now he seems to be firmly in the mix and should get some playing time behind Redskins starter Matt Jones. How much should be determined in preseason play.

Fantasy goo: This is a Pyro favorite. His ADP has risen a full round in a month. He is currently going in the last few rounds of MFL 10's, which are 20 round PPR best ball drafts. Personally, I think Marshall has a great shot, if healthy. I am very skeptical of Matt Jones at this point. However, our very own d-Rx has been signing the Counting Crows - "Mr. Jones and Me" for quite some time. From my vantage, Jones has issues with his hands, and when given the chance in weeks 10-13, he the man was given the rock 42 times and he averaged just 3.0 yards per carry.

Chris Thompson To Continue Third Down Role For Redskins In 2016


While second-year running back Matt Jones is expected to receive a vast majority of early-down work in Washington, Chris Thompson is all but locked in as the third-down specialist. (Rich Tandler on Twitter)

Fantasy Goo: Despite only playing in thirteen games in 2015, Thompson earned himself a modest target share as he saw 47 targets. He hauled in 35 of those targets for 240 yards and two touchdowns. His value is slightly higher in PPR leagues but tops out as the 55th overall back in our ECR rankings. While he remains slightly fantasy relevant, there just isn't enough value here to claim him as a solid handcuff for Matt Jones owners.

Jones to Minimize Fumbles


Jones hopes to solve his fumbling problems. In 2015, Jones put the ball on the grass 5 times. Jones experienced similar problems in 2013 at the University of Florida.

Fantasy Goo: Jones was a low end RB2/Flex rotational player for most people last year. With the absence of Alfred Morris, expect Jones to perform as a dependable RB2 behind an offensive line that ranked 1st in Rush Offense through week 6.

Matt Jones to be Washington’s starter next season.


Matt Jones possesses impressive size for a running back (6 foot 2, 231 pounds) and, at times, used that size quite effectively. He proved to be reliable pass catcher despite catching only a few balls in college. And he showed that he's got the ability to run over defenders as well as make them miss. (Remember the screen pass he took 78 yards for a touchdown against New Orleans?)--Tarik El-Bashir

Jones Should be in Line for More Work


With fellow RB Chris Thompson listed as Doubtful, Jones should get a larger piece of the action. Alf is not playing particularly well, averaging below 2 yards a carry for his past two games. Plus, the coaching staff said that Jones will be in line to take over on 3rd down duties for Thompson if he is a no go, which is looking that way.

Does signing Matt Jones hurt Mack & Gore?


The Indianapolis Colts claimed Matt Jones off waivers after he was cut by the Washington Redskins. Matt was a 3rd rounder 3 seasons ago by the Redskins, and Marlon Mack was a 4th rounder this year for the Colts. The hype train was rolling down the tracks for Mack all preseason as he brought an element that the Colts haven't had in their backfield in ages, explosion! Personally, I believe this move is a sign that the Colts know Frank Gore is old and has lost some of his gusto, but the front office also is aware the Colts are going to have to run the ball a lot with Tolzien prior to Luck's return.

Fantasy Goo: Marlon Mack's touches just took a hit, but I strongly believe that Gore's touches get hurt more. It will take Matt a bit to figure out the playbook, and if Mack and Gore get it going early in the season Jones may just be some much-needed depth at RB.

Matt Jones has fumbled 3 times in the last 5 games. That brings his total to 8 fumbles in 270 touches. It undoubtedly cost him some FF Points in Week 7.

Fantasy goo: While Chris Thompson is a decent flex play if the matchup is right in PPR, this could very well be the opportunity that Rob Kelley needs to pull a Steve Miller Band, and "go on take the money and run". Chris Thompson's looks have increased in each of the last 3 weeks. The safe be is certainly Thompson, especially in PPR. Just watch out for the playoffs. From weeks 12-16, the team only has 1 home game and that is against Carolina.

Jones Listed as Questionable But says he is 100% Ready to go


Jones, listed as questionable, did indeed run a full practice at the Saturday walk through. Jones himself, has claimed to be 100% ready to go and it appears the Questionable tag was just a precaution.

Fantasy Goo: I think Kelley will get some work, but Jones should get the majority of the 1st and 2nd down load. Thompson is indeed the pass-catcher out of the backfield. Any one of these Redskins backs could make a leap this season. Even though this is a Monday game, I would not worry about Jones playing, he should get at least 70% of the early down work.

Matt Jones Sprains AC Joint In His Shoulder


Matt Jones sprained the AC joint in his left shoulder during an awkward tackle in Friday's preseason game against the Jets.

Fantasy Goo: It's good news after seeing him get up in pain and trot off the field holding his arm in an awkward position. An injury like this can take anywhere from 1-6 weeks to heal so he is probably done for the preseason but should be good for the regular season. Continue to monitor the situation closely and you may want to roster Rob Kelley as he came in the game and stayed in the game for the rest of the half.

Marshall Looking Good in Redskins Backfield


Marshall was touted by many as he came to Georgia. However, the back fell through the talented cracks of Chubb and Gurley during his stint as a Bulldog. Ultimately, it was the knee injuries that had most concerned. He silenced many critics by putting up a 4.31 at the combine. Now he seems to be firmly in the mix and should get some playing time behind Redskins starter Matt Jones. How much should be determined in preseason play.

Fantasy goo: This is a Pyro favorite. His ADP has risen a full round in a month. He is currently going in the last few rounds of MFL 10's, which are 20 round PPR best ball drafts. Personally, I think Marshall has a great shot, if healthy. I am very skeptical of Matt Jones at this point. However, our very own d-Rx has been signing the Counting Crows - "Mr. Jones and Me" for quite some time. From my vantage, Jones has issues with his hands, and when given the chance in weeks 10-13, he the man was given the rock 42 times and he averaged just 3.0 yards per carry.

Chris Thompson To Continue Third Down Role For Redskins In 2016


While second-year running back Matt Jones is expected to receive a vast majority of early-down work in Washington, Chris Thompson is all but locked in as the third-down specialist. (Rich Tandler on Twitter)

Fantasy Goo: Despite only playing in thirteen games in 2015, Thompson earned himself a modest target share as he saw 47 targets. He hauled in 35 of those targets for 240 yards and two touchdowns. His value is slightly higher in PPR leagues but tops out as the 55th overall back in our ECR rankings. While he remains slightly fantasy relevant, there just isn't enough value here to claim him as a solid handcuff for Matt Jones owners.

Jones to Minimize Fumbles


Jones hopes to solve his fumbling problems. In 2015, Jones put the ball on the grass 5 times. Jones experienced similar problems in 2013 at the University of Florida.

Fantasy Goo: Jones was a low end RB2/Flex rotational player for most people last year. With the absence of Alfred Morris, expect Jones to perform as a dependable RB2 behind an offensive line that ranked 1st in Rush Offense through week 6.

Matt Jones to be Washington’s starter next season.


Matt Jones possesses impressive size for a running back (6 foot 2, 231 pounds) and, at times, used that size quite effectively. He proved to be reliable pass catcher despite catching only a few balls in college. And he showed that he's got the ability to run over defenders as well as make them miss. (Remember the screen pass he took 78 yards for a touchdown against New Orleans?)--Tarik El-Bashir

Jones Should be in Line for More Work


With fellow RB Chris Thompson listed as Doubtful, Jones should get a larger piece of the action. Alf is not playing particularly well, averaging below 2 yards a carry for his past two games. Plus, the coaching staff said that Jones will be in line to take over on 3rd down duties for Thompson if he is a no go, which is looking that way.

Alfred Morris is the "bell-cow" but Matt Jones is making a serious dent in that situation. The more he plays the more he earns. He has great keeper and dynasty value, but limited in redraft.

Does signing Matt Jones hurt Mack & Gore?


The Indianapolis Colts claimed Matt Jones off waivers after he was cut by the Washington Redskins. Matt was a 3rd rounder 3 seasons ago by the Redskins, and Marlon Mack was a 4th rounder this year for the Colts. The hype train was rolling down the tracks for Mack all preseason as he brought an element that the Colts haven't had in their backfield in ages, explosion! Personally, I believe this move is a sign that the Colts know Frank Gore is old and has lost some of his gusto, but the front office also is aware the Colts are going to have to run the ball a lot with Tolzien prior to Luck's return.

Fantasy Goo: Marlon Mack's touches just took a hit, but I strongly believe that Gore's touches get hurt more. It will take Matt a bit to figure out the playbook, and if Mack and Gore get it going early in the season Jones may just be some much-needed depth at RB. I've always liked Matt as a player, but he's a fumble away from "oh shit", even on his new team.

PK and I really like Matt Jones in Indy if he can put the fumbling issues behind him. He and Marlon Mack could be solid tandem when Frank retires.

Fantasy Goo: This is pretty much a dynasty-only consideration at this point, and we really have no idea if he can stay on the roster. Only look for Jones in the deepest of dynasty leagues, but keep him on your watch-list everywhere, he’s got the talent if he can hold onto the ball.

Fantasy Goo: Jones was a low end RB2/Flex rotational player for most people last year. With the absence of Alfred Morris, expect Jones to perform as a dependable RB2 behind an offensive line that ranked 1st in Rush Offense through week 6.

Matt Jones to be Washington’s starter next season.


Matt Jones possesses impressive size for a running back (6 foot 2, 231 pounds) and, at times, used that size quite effectively. He proved to be reliable pass catcher despite catching only a few balls in college. And he showed that he's got the ability to run over defenders as well as make them miss. (Remember the screen pass he took 78 yards for a touchdown against New Orleans?)--Tarik El-Bashir

Chris Russell via Twitter "Matt Jones limited for #Redskins today. Nobody missed per Jay Gruden."

If Matt Jones misses the game against the Packers look for Alfred Morris to be the prime ball carrier while Pierre Thomas and Chris Thompson are the third down backs.

Jones Should be in Line for More Work


With fellow RB Chris Thompson listed as Doubtful, Jones should get a larger piece of the action. Alf is not playing particularly well, averaging below 2 yards a carry for his past two games. Plus, the coaching staff said that Jones will be in line to take over on 3rd down duties for Thompson if he is a no go, which is looking that way.

Alfred Morris is the "bell-cow" but Matt Jones is making a serious dent in that situation. The more he plays the more he earns. He has great keeper and dynasty value, but limited in redraft.

Matt Jones came on this preseason as did teammate Alfred Morris his rookie season. Head coach Jay Gruden mentioned the role for Jones: "We’re going to work Matt [Jones] in there, obviously," Gruden said. "Alfred [Morris]’s still the bell cow. We want to keep him fresh for 16 games. If he gets 12-20 carries, Matt Jones gets eight to 10, I don’t know how that’s going to work or play out."

Does signing Matt Jones hurt Mack & Gore?


The Indianapolis Colts claimed Matt Jones off waivers after he was cut by the Washington Redskins. Matt was a 3rd rounder 3 seasons ago by the Redskins, and Marlon Mack was a 4th rounder this year for the Colts. The hype train was rolling down the tracks for Mack all preseason as he brought an element that the Colts haven't had in their backfield in ages, explosion! Personally, I believe this move is a sign that the Colts know Frank Gore is old and has lost some of his gusto, but the front office also is aware the Colts are going to have to run the ball a lot with Tolzien prior to Luck's return.

Fantasy Goo: Marlon Mack's touches just took a hit, but I strongly believe that Gore's touches get hurt more. It will take Matt a bit to figure out the playbook, and if Mack and Gore get it going early in the season Jones may just be some much-needed depth at RB. I've always liked Matt as a player, but he's a fumble away from "oh shit", even on his new team.

Colts Claim Former Washington RB Matt Jones on Waivers


PK and I really like Matt Jones in Indy if he can put the fumbling issues behind him. He and Marlon Mack could be solid tandem when Frank retires.

Fantasy Goo: This is pretty much a dynasty-only consideration at this point, and we really have no idea if he can stay on the roster. Only look for Jones in the deepest of dynasty leagues, but keep him on your watch-list everywhere, he’s got the talent if he can hold onto the ball.

Chris Thompson's looks have increased in each of the last 3 weeks. The safe be is certainly Thompson, especially in PPR. Just watch out for the playoffs. From weeks 12-16, the team only has 1 home game and that is against Carolina.

Jones Listed as Questionable But says he is 100% Ready to go


Jones, listed as questionable, did indeed run a full practice at the Saturday walk through. Jones himself, has claimed to be 100% ready to go and it appears the Questionable tag was just a precaution.

Fantasy Goo: I think Kelley will get some work, but Jones should get the majority of the 1st and 2nd down load. Thompson is indeed the pass-catcher out of the backfield. Any one of these Redskins backs could make a leap this season. Even though this is a Monday game, I would not worry about Jones playing, he should get at least 70% of the early down work.

Matt Jones Sprains AC Joint In His Shoulder


Matt Jones sprained the AC joint in his left shoulder during an awkward tackle in Friday's preseason game against the Jets.

Fantasy Goo: It's good news after seeing him get up in pain and trot off the field holding his arm in an awkward position. An injury like this can take anywhere from 1-6 weeks to heal so he is probably done for the preseason but should be good for the regular season. Continue to monitor the situation closely and you may want to roster Rob Kelley as he came in the game and stayed in the game for the rest of the half.

Marshall Looking Good in Redskins Backfield


Marshall was touted by many as he came to Georgia. However, the back fell through the talented cracks of Chubb and Gurley during his stint as a Bulldog. Ultimately, it was the knee injuries that had most concerned. He silenced many critics by putting up a 4.31 at the combine. Now he seems to be firmly in the mix and should get some playing time behind Redskins starter Matt Jones. How much should be determined in preseason play.

Fantasy goo: This is a Pyro favorite. His ADP has risen a full round in a month. He is currently going in the last few rounds of MFL 10's, which are 20 round PPR best ball drafts. Personally, I think Marshall has a great shot, if healthy. I am very skeptical of Matt Jones at this point. However, our very own d-Rx has been signing the Counting Crows - "Mr. Jones and Me" for quite some time. From my vantage, Jones has issues with his hands, and when given the chance in weeks 10-13, he the man was given the rock 42 times and he averaged just 3.0 yards per carry.

Chris Thompson To Continue Third Down Role For Redskins In 2016


While second-year running back Matt Jones is expected to receive a vast majority of early-down work in Washington, Chris Thompson is all but locked in as the third-down specialist. (Rich Tandler on Twitter)

Fantasy Goo: Despite only playing in thirteen games in 2015, Thompson earned himself a modest target share as he saw 47 targets. He hauled in 35 of those targets for 240 yards and two touchdowns. His value is slightly higher in PPR leagues but tops out as the 55th overall back in our ECR rankings. While he remains slightly fantasy relevant, there just isn't enough value here to claim him as a solid handcuff for Matt Jones owners.

Does signing Matt Jones hurt Mack & Gore?


The Indianapolis Colts claimed Matt Jones off waivers after he was cut by the Washington Redskins. Matt was a 3rd rounder 3 seasons ago by the Redskins, and Marlon Mack was a 4th rounder this year for the Colts. The hype train was rolling down the tracks for Mack all preseason as he brought an element that the Colts haven't had in their backfield in ages, explosion! Personally, I believe this move is a sign that the Colts know Frank Gore is old and has lost some of his gusto, but the front office also is aware the Colts are going to have to run the ball a lot with Tolzien prior to Luck's return.

Fantasy Goo: Marlon Mack's touches just took a hit, but I strongly believe that Gore's touches get hurt more. It will take Matt a bit to figure out the playbook, and if Mack and Gore get it going early in the season Jones may just be some much-needed depth at RB. I've always liked Matt as a player, but he's a fumble away from "oh shit", even on his new team.

Matt Jones Still Plauged with Drops


Matt Jones has fumbled 3 times in the last 5 games. That brings his total to 8 fumbles in 270 touches. It undoubtedly cost him some FF Points in Week 7.

Fantasy goo: While Chris Thompson is a decent flex play if the matchup is right in PPR, this could very well be the opportunity that Rob Kelley needs to pull a Steve Miller Band, and "go on take the money and run". Chris Thompson's looks have increased in each of the last 3 weeks. The safe be is certainly Thompson, especially in PPR. Just watch out for the playoffs. From weeks 12-16, the team only has 1 home game and that is against Carolina.

Jones Listed as Questionable But says he is 100% Ready to go


Jones, listed as questionable, did indeed run a full practice at the Saturday walk through. Jones himself, has claimed to be 100% ready to go and it appears the Questionable tag was just a precaution.

Fantasy Goo: I think Kelley will get some work, but Jones should get the majority of the 1st and 2nd down load. Thompson is indeed the pass-catcher out of the backfield. Any one of these Redskins backs could make a leap this season. Even though this is a Monday game, I would not worry about Jones playing, he should get at least 70% of the early down work.

Matt Jones Sprains AC Joint In His Shoulder


Matt Jones sprained the AC joint in his left shoulder during an awkward tackle in Friday's preseason game against the Jets.

Fantasy Goo: It's good news after seeing him get up in pain and trot off the field holding his arm in an awkward position. An injury like this can take anywhere from 1-6 weeks to heal so he is probably done for the preseason but should be good for the regular season. Continue to monitor the situation closely and you may want to roster Rob Kelley as he came in the game and stayed in the game for the rest of the half.

Marshall Looking Good in Redskins Backfield


Marshall was touted by many as he came to Georgia. However, the back fell through the talented cracks of Chubb and Gurley during his stint as a Bulldog. Ultimately, it was the knee injuries that had most concerned. He silenced many critics by putting up a 4.31 at the combine. Now he seems to be firmly in the mix and should get some playing time behind Redskins starter Matt Jones. How much should be determined in preseason play.

Fantasy goo: This is a Pyro favorite. His ADP has risen a full round in a month. He is currently going in the last few rounds of MFL 10's, which are 20 round PPR best ball drafts. Personally, I think Marshall has a great shot, if healthy. I am very skeptical of Matt Jones at this point. However, our very own d-Rx has been signing the Counting Crows - "Mr. Jones and Me" for quite some time. From my vantage, Jones has issues with his hands, and when given the chance in weeks 10-13, he the man was given the rock 42 times and he averaged just 3.0 yards per carry.

Chris Thompson To Continue Third Down Role For Redskins In 2016


While second-year running back Matt Jones is expected to receive a vast majority of early-down work in Washington, Chris Thompson is all but locked in as the third-down specialist. (Rich Tandler on Twitter)

Fantasy Goo: Despite only playing in thirteen games in 2015, Thompson earned himself a modest target share as he saw 47 targets. He hauled in 35 of those targets for 240 yards and two touchdowns. His value is slightly higher in PPR leagues but tops out as the 55th overall back in our ECR rankings. While he remains slightly fantasy relevant, there just isn't enough value here to claim him as a solid handcuff for Matt Jones owners.

Fantasy Goo: Jones was a low end RB2/Flex rotational player for most people last year. With the absence of Alfred Morris, expect Jones to perform as a dependable RB2 behind an offensive line that ranked 1st in Rush Offense through week 6.

Matt Jones to be Washington’s starter next season.


Matt Jones possesses impressive size for a running back (6 foot 2, 231 pounds) and, at times, used that size quite effectively. He proved to be reliable pass catcher despite catching only a few balls in college. And he showed that he's got the ability to run over defenders as well as make them miss.

Jones Should be in Line for More Work


With fellow RB Chris Thompson listed as Doubtful, Jones should get a larger piece of the action. Alf is not playing particularly well, averaging below 2 yards a carry for his past two games. Plus, the coaching staff said that Jones will be in line to take over on 3rd down duties for Thompson if he is a no go, which is looking that way.

Does signing Matt Jones hurt Mack & Gore?


The Indianapolis Colts claimed Matt Jones off waivers after he was cut by the Washington Redskins. Matt was a 3rd rounder 3 seasons ago by the Redskins, and Marlon Mack was a 4th rounder this year for the Colts. The hype train was rolling down the tracks for Mack all preseason as he brought an element that the Colts haven't had in their backfield in ages, explosion! Personally, I believe this move is a sign that the Colts know Frank Gore is old and has lost some of his gusto, but the front office also is aware the Colts are going to have to run the ball a lot with Tolzien prior to Luck's return.

Fantasy Goo: Marlon Mack's touches just took a hit, but I strongly believe that Gore's touches get hurt more. It will take Matt a bit to figure out the playbook, and if Mack and Gore get it going early in the season Jones may just be some much-needed depth at RB. I've always liked Matt as a player, but he's a fumble away from "oh shit", even on his new team.

PK and I really like Matt Jones in Indy if he can put the fumbling issues behind him. He and Marlon Mack could be solid tandem when Frank retires.

Fantasy Goo: This is pretty much a dynasty-only consideration at this point, and we really have no idea if he can stay on the roster. Only look for Jones in the deepest of dynasty leagues, but keep him on your watch-list everywhere, he’s got the talent if he can hold onto the ball.

Jones Should be in Line for More Work


With fellow RB Chris Thompson listed as Doubtful, Jones should get a larger piece of the action. Alf is not playing particularly well, averaging below 2 yards a carry for his past two games. Plus, the coaching staff said that Jones will be in line to take over on 3rd down duties for Thompson if he is a no go, which is looking that way.

Washington Redskins official twitter stated "Gruden on RB Matt Jones: 'He does have a rare combination of size and speed, and he has good vision right now."

Alfred Morris is the "bell-cow" but Matt Jones is making a serious dent in that situation. The more he plays the more he earns. He has great keeper and dynasty value, but limited in redraft.

Matt Jones came on this preseason as did teammate Alfred Morris his rookie season. Head coach Jay Gruden mentioned the role for Jones: "We’re going to work Matt [Jones] in there, obviously," Gruden said. "Alfred [Morris]’s still the bell cow. We want to keep him fresh for 16 games. If he gets 12-20 carries, Matt Jones gets eight to 10, I don’t know how that’s going to work or play out."

Does signing Matt Jones hurt Mack & Gore?


The Indianapolis Colts claimed Matt Jones off waivers after he was cut by the Washington Redskins. Matt was a 3rd rounder 3 seasons ago by the Redskins, and Marlon Mack was a 4th rounder this year for the Colts. The hype train was rolling down the tracks for Mack all preseason as he brought an element that the Colts haven't had in their backfield in ages, explosion! Personally, I believe this move is a sign that the Colts know Frank Gore is old and has lost some of his gusto, but the front office also is aware the Colts are going to have to run the ball a lot with Tolzien prior to Luck's return.

Fantasy Goo: Marlon Mack's touches just took a hit, but I strongly believe that Gore's touches get hurt more. It will take Matt a bit to figure out the playbook, and if Mack and Gore get it going early in the season Jones may just be some much-needed depth at RB. I've always liked Matt as a player, but he's a fumble away from "oh shit", even on his new team.

Colts Claim Former Washington RB Matt Jones on Waivers


PK and I really like Matt Jones in Indy if he can put the fumbling issues behind him. He and Marlon Mack could be solid tandem when Frank retires.

Fantasy Goo: This is pretty much a dynasty-only consideration at this point, and we really have no idea if he can stay on the roster. Only look for Jones in the deepest of dynasty leagues, but keep him on your watch-list everywhere, he’s got the talent if he can hold onto the ball.

Matt Jones has fumbled 3 times in the last 5 games. That brings his total to 8 fumbles in 270 touches. It undoubtedly cost him some FF Points in Week 7.

Fantasy goo: While Chris Thompson is a decent flex play if the matchup is right in PPR, this could very well be the opportunity that Rob Kelley needs to pull a Steve Miller Band, and "go on take the money and run". Chris Thompson's looks have increased in each of the last 3 weeks. The safe be is certainly Thompson, especially in PPR. Just watch out for the playoffs. From weeks 12-16, the team only has 1 home game and that is against Carolina.

Jones Listed as Questionable But says he is 100% Ready to go


Jones, listed as questionable, did indeed run a full practice at the Saturday walk through. Jones himself, has claimed to be 100% ready to go and it appears the Questionable tag was just a precaution.

Fantasy Goo: I think Kelley will get some work, but Jones should get the majority of the 1st and 2nd down load. Thompson is indeed the pass-catcher out of the backfield. Any one of these Redskins backs could make a leap this season. Even though this is a Monday game, I would not worry about Jones playing, he should get at least 70% of the early down work.

Matt Jones Sprains AC Joint In His Shoulder


Matt Jones sprained the AC joint in his left shoulder during an awkward tackle in Friday's preseason game against the Jets.

Fantasy Goo: It's good news after seeing him get up in pain and trot off the field holding his arm in an awkward position. An injury like this can take anywhere from 1-6 weeks to heal so he is probably done for the preseason but should be good for the regular season. Continue to monitor the situation closely and you may want to roster Rob Kelley as he came in the game and stayed in the game for the rest of the half.

Marshall Looking Good in Redskins Backfield


Marshall was touted by many as he came to Georgia. However, the back fell through the talented cracks of Chubb and Gurley during his stint as a Bulldog. Ultimately, it was the knee injuries that had most concerned. He silenced many critics by putting up a 4.31 at the combine. Now he seems to be firmly in the mix and should get some playing time behind Redskins starter Matt Jones. How much should be determined in preseason play.

Fantasy goo: This is a Pyro favorite. His ADP has risen a full round in a month. He is currently going in the last few rounds of MFL 10's, which are 20 round PPR best ball drafts. Personally, I think Marshall has a great shot, if healthy. I am very skeptical of Matt Jones at this point. However, our very own d-Rx has been signing the Counting Crows - "Mr. Jones and Me" for quite some time. From my vantage, Jones has issues with his hands, and when given the chance in weeks 10-13, he the man was given the rock 42 times and he averaged just 3.0 yards per carry.

Chris Thompson To Continue Third Down Role For Redskins In 2016


While second-year running back Matt Jones is expected to receive a vast majority of early-down work in Washington, Chris Thompson is all but locked in as the third-down specialist. (Rich Tandler on Twitter)

Fantasy Goo: Despite only playing in thirteen games in 2015, Thompson earned himself a modest target share as he saw 47 targets. He hauled in 35 of those targets for 240 yards and two touchdowns. His value is slightly higher in PPR leagues but tops out as the 55th overall back in our ECR rankings. While he remains slightly fantasy relevant, there just isn't enough value here to claim him as a solid handcuff for Matt Jones owners.

Jones to Minimize Fumbles


Jones hopes to solve his fumbling problems. In 2015, Jones put the ball on the grass 5 times. Jones experienced similar problems in 2013 at the University of Florida.

Fantasy Goo: Jones was a low end RB2/Flex rotational player for most people last year. With the absence of Alfred Morris, expect Jones to perform as a dependable RB2 behind an offensive line that ranked 1st in Rush Offense through week 6.

Matt Jones to be Washington’s starter next season.


Matt Jones possesses impressive size for a running back (6 foot 2, 231 pounds) and, at times, used that size quite effectively. He proved to be reliable pass catcher despite catching only a few balls in college. And he showed that he's got the ability to run over defenders as well as make them miss.

Does signing Matt Jones hurt Mack & Gore?


The Indianapolis Colts claimed Matt Jones off waivers after he was cut by the Washington Redskins. Matt was a 3rd rounder 3 seasons ago by the Redskins, and Marlon Mack was a 4th rounder this year for the Colts. The hype train was rolling down the tracks for Mack all preseason as he brought an element that the Colts haven't had in their backfield in ages, explosion! Personally, I believe this move is a sign that the Colts know Frank Gore is old and has lost some of his gusto, but the front office also is aware the Colts are going to have to run the ball a lot with Tolzien prior to Luck's return.

Fantasy Goo: Marlon Mack's touches just took a hit, but I strongly believe that Gore's touches get hurt more. It will take Matt a bit to figure out the playbook, and if Mack and Gore get it going early in the season Jones may just be some much-needed depth at RB.

Jones Listed as Questionable But says he is 100% Ready to go


Jones, listed as questionable, did indeed run a full practice at the Saturday walk through. Jones himself, has claimed to be 100% ready to go and it appears the Questionable tag was just a precaution.

Fantasy Goo: I think Kelley will get some work, but Jones should get the majority of the 1st and 2nd down load. Thompson is indeed the pass-catcher out of the backfield. Any one of these Redskins backs could make a leap this season. Even though this is a Monday game, I would not worry about Jones playing, he should get at least 70% of the early down work.

Fantasy Goo: Matt Jones was touted as the man when they let Alfred Morris go. During this preseason Matt Jones sprained his AC joint. There was lots of talk about how sneaky good Rob Kelley is shaping up to be in case Matt Jones could not take the field for week 1. However, Matt Jones should be there to carry the heavy lifting. Rob Kelley and Chris Thompson should see the field as well. Matt Jones may be partially forgotten as of week 1 so; a big performance will be needed to make owners consider using him in the future weeks ahead.

Matt Jones Sprains AC Joint In His Shoulder


Matt Jones sprained the AC joint in his left shoulder during an awkward tackle in Friday's preseason game against the Jets.

Fantasy Goo: It's good news after seeing him get up in pain and trot off the field holding his arm in an awkward position. An injury like this can take anywhere from 1-6 weeks to heal so he is probably done for the preseason but should be good for the regular season. Continue to monitor the situation closely and you may want to roster Rob Kelley as he came in the game and stayed in the game for the rest of the half.

Marshall Looking Good in Redskins Backfield


Marshall was touted by many as he came to Georgia. However, the back fell through the talented cracks of Chubb and Gurley during his stint as a Bulldog. Ultimately, it was the knee injuries that had most concerned. He silenced many critics by putting up a 4.31 at the combine. Now he seems to be firmly in the mix and should get some playing time behind Redskins starter Matt Jones. How much should be determined in preseason play.

Fantasy goo: This is a Pyro favorite. His ADP has risen a full round in a month. He is currently going in the last few rounds of MFL 10's, which are 20 round PPR best ball drafts. Personally, I think Marshall has a great shot, if healthy. I am very skeptical of Matt Jones at this point. However, our very own d-Rx has been signing the Counting Crows - "Mr. Jones and Me" for quite some time. From my vantage, Jones has issues with his hands, and when given the chance in weeks 10-13, he the man was given the rock 42 times and he averaged just 3.0 yards per carry.

Chris Thompson To Continue Third Down Role For Redskins In 2016


While second-year running back Matt Jones is expected to receive a vast majority of early-down work in Washington, Chris Thompson is all but locked in as the third-down specialist. (Rich Tandler on Twitter)

Fantasy Goo: Despite only playing in thirteen games in 2015, Thompson earned himself a modest target share as he saw 47 targets. He hauled in 35 of those targets for 240 yards and two touchdowns. His value is slightly higher in PPR leagues but tops out as the 55th overall back in our ECR rankings. While he remains slightly fantasy relevant, there just isn't enough value here to claim him as a solid handcuff for Matt Jones owners.

Jones to Minimize Fumbles


Jones hopes to solve his fumbling problems. In 2015, Jones put the ball on the grass 5 times. Jones experienced similar problems in 2013 at the University of Florida.

Fantasy Goo: Jones was a low end RB2/Flex rotational player for most people last year. With the absence of Alfred Morris, expect Jones to perform as a dependable RB2 behind an offensive line that ranked 1st in Rush Offense through week 6.

Matt Jones possesses impressive size for a running back (6 foot 2, 231 pounds) and, at times, used that size quite effectively. He proved to be reliable pass catcher despite catching only a few balls in college. And he showed that he's got the ability to run over defenders as well as make them miss.

With fellow RB Chris Thompson listed as Doubtful, Jones should get a larger piece of the action. Alf is not playing particularly well, averaging below 2 yards a carry for his past two games. Plus, the coaching staff said that Jones will be in line to take over on 3rd down duties for Thompson if he is a no go, which is looking that way.

Does signing Matt Jones hurt Mack & Gore?


The Indianapolis Colts claimed Matt Jones off waivers after he was cut by the Washington Redskins. Matt was a 3rd rounder 3 seasons ago by the Redskins, and Marlon Mack was a 4th rounder this year for the Colts. The hype train was rolling down the tracks for Mack all preseason as he brought an element that the Colts haven't had in their backfield in ages, explosion! Personally, I believe this move is a sign that the Colts know Frank Gore is old and has lost some of his gusto, but the front office also is aware the Colts are going to have to run the ball a lot with Tolzien prior to Luck's return.

Fantasy Goo: Marlon Mack's touches just took a hit, but I strongly believe that Gore's touches get hurt more. It will take Matt a bit to figure out the playbook, and if Mack and Gore get it going early in the season Jones may just be some much-needed depth at RB. I've always liked Matt as a player, but he's a fumble away from "oh shit", even on his new team.

PK and I really like Matt Jones in Indy if he can put the fumbling issues behind him. He and Marlon Mack could be solid tandem when Frank retires.

Fantasy Goo: This is pretty much a dynasty-only consideration at this point, and we really have no idea if he can stay on the roster. Only look for Jones in the deepest of dynasty leagues, but keep him on your watch-list everywhere, he’s got the talent if he can hold onto the ball.

Matt Jones has fumbled 3 times in the last 5 games. That brings his total to 8 fumbles in 270 touches. It undoubtedly cost him some FF Points in Week 7.

Fantasy goo: While Chris Thompson is a decent flex play if the matchup is right in PPR, this could very well be the opportunity that Rob Kelley needs to pull a Steve Miller Band, and "go on take the money and run". Chris Thompson's looks have increased in each of the last 3 weeks. The safe be is certainly Thompson, especially in PPR. Just watch out for the playoffs. From weeks 12-16, the team only has 1 home game and that is against Carolina.

Any one of these Redskins backs could make a leap this season. Even though this is a Monday game, I would not worry about Jones playing, he should get at least 70% of the early down work.

Alfred Morris is the "bell-cow" but Matt Jones is making a serious dent in that situation. The more he plays the more he earns. He has great keeper and dynasty value, but limited in redraft.

Keep an eye on Matt Jones


Matt Jones came on this preseason as did teammate Alfred Morris his rookie season. Head coach Jay Gruden mentioned the role for Jones: "We’re going to work Matt [Jones] in there, obviously," Gruden said. "Alfred [Morris]’s still the bell cow. We want to keep him fresh for 16 games. If he gets 12-20 carries, Matt Jones gets eight to 10, I don’t know how that’s going to work or play out."

Does signing Matt Jones hurt Mack & Gore?


The Indianapolis Colts claimed Matt Jones off waivers after he was cut by the Washington Redskins. Matt was a 3rd rounder 3 seasons ago by the Redskins, and Marlon Mack was a 4th rounder this year for the Colts. The hype train was rolling down the tracks for Mack all preseason as he brought an element that the Colts haven't had in their backfield in ages, explosion! Personally, I believe this move is a sign that the Colts know Frank Gore is old and has lost some of his gusto, but the front office also is aware the Colts are going to have to run the ball a lot with Tolzien prior to Luck's return.

Fantasy Goo: Marlon Mack's touches just took a hit, but I strongly believe that Gore's touches get hurt more. It will take Matt a bit to figure out the playbook, and if Mack and Gore get it going early in the season Jones may just be some much-needed depth at RB. I've always liked Matt as a player, but he's a fumble away from "oh shit", even on his new team.

Colts Claim Former Washington RB Matt Jones on Waivers


PK and I really like Matt Jones in Indy if he can put the fumbling issues behind him. He and Marlon Mack could be solid tandem when Frank retires.

Fantasy Goo: This is pretty much a dynasty-only consideration at this point, and we really have no idea if he can stay on the roster. Only look for Jones in the deepest of dynasty leagues, but keep him on your watch-list everywhere, he’s got the talent if he can hold onto the ball.

Matt Jones Still Plauged with Drops


Matt Jones has fumbled 3 times in the last 5 games. That brings his total to 8 fumbles in 270 touches. It undoubtedly cost him some FF Points in Week 7.

Fantasy goo: While Chris Thompson is a decent flex play if the matchup is right in PPR, this could very well be the opportunity that Rob Kelley needs to pull a Steve Miller Band, and "go on take the money and run". Chris Thompson's looks have increased in each of the last 3 weeks. The safe be is certainly Thompson, especially in PPR. Just watch out for the playoffs. From weeks 12-16, the team only has 1 home game and that is against Carolina.

Jones Listed as Questionable But says he is 100% Ready to go


Jones, listed as questionable, did indeed run a full practice at the Saturday walk through. Jones himself, has claimed to be 100% ready to go and it appears the Questionable tag was just a precaution.

Fantasy Goo: I think Kelley will get some work, but Jones should get the majority of the 1st and 2nd down load. Thompson is indeed the pass-catcher out of the backfield. Any one of these Redskins backs could make a leap this season. Even though this is a Monday game, I would not worry about Jones playing, he should get at least 70% of the early down work.

Matt Jones Sprains AC Joint In His Shoulder


Matt Jones sprained the AC joint in his left shoulder during an awkward tackle in Friday's preseason game against the Jets.

Fantasy Goo: It's good news after seeing him get up in pain and trot off the field holding his arm in an awkward position. An injury like this can take anywhere from 1-6 weeks to heal so he is probably done for the preseason but should be good for the regular season. Continue to monitor the situation closely and you may want to roster Rob Kelley as he came in the game and stayed in the game for the rest of the half.

Marshall Looking Good in Redskins Backfield


Marshall was touted by many as he came to Georgia. However, the back fell through the talented cracks of Chubb and Gurley during his stint as a Bulldog. Ultimately, it was the knee injuries that had most concerned. He silenced many critics by putting up a 4.31 at the combine. Now he seems to be firmly in the mix and should get some playing time behind Redskins starter Matt Jones. How much should be determined in preseason play.

Fantasy goo: This is a Pyro favorite. His ADP has risen a full round in a month. He is currently going in the last few rounds of MFL 10's, which are 20 round PPR best ball drafts. Personally, I think Marshall has a great shot, if healthy. I am very skeptical of Matt Jones at this point. However, our very own d-Rx has been signing the Counting Crows - "Mr. Jones and Me" for quite some time. From my vantage, Jones has issues with his hands, and when given the chance in weeks 10-13, he the man was given the rock 42 times and he averaged just 3.0 yards per carry.

Chris Thompson To Continue Third Down Role For Redskins In 2016


While second-year running back Matt Jones is expected to receive a vast majority of early-down work in Washington, Chris Thompson is all but locked in as the third-down specialist. (Rich Tandler on Twitter)

Fantasy Goo: Despite only playing in thirteen games in 2015, Thompson earned himself a modest target share as he saw 47 targets. He hauled in 35 of those targets for 240 yards and two touchdowns. His value is slightly higher in PPR leagues but tops out as the 55th overall back in our ECR rankings. While he remains slightly fantasy relevant, there just isn't enough value here to claim him as a solid handcuff for Matt Jones owners.

Jones to Minimize Fumbles


Jones hopes to solve his fumbling problems. In 2015, Jones put the ball on the grass 5 times. Jones experienced similar problems in 2013 at the University of Florida.

Fantasy Goo: Jones was a low end RB2/Flex rotational player for most people last year. With the absence of Alfred Morris, expect Jones to perform as a dependable RB2 behind an offensive line that ranked 1st in Rush Offense through week 6.

Matt Jones to be Washington’s starter next season.


Matt Jones possesses impressive size for a running back (6 foot 2, 231 pounds) and, at times, used that size quite effectively. He proved to be reliable pass catcher despite catching only a few balls in college. And he showed that he's got the ability to run over defenders as well as make them miss. (Remember the screen pass he took 78 yards for a touchdown against New Orleans?)--Tarik El-Bashir

With fellow RB Chris Thompson listed as Doubtful, Jones should get a larger piece of the action. Alf is not playing particularly well, averaging below 2 yards a carry for his past two games. Plus, the coaching staff said that Jones will be in line to take over on 3rd down duties for Thompson if he is a no go, which is looking that way.

Does signing Matt Jones hurt Mack & Gore?


The Indianapolis Colts claimed Matt Jones off waivers after he was cut by the Washington Redskins. Matt was a 3rd rounder 3 seasons ago by the Redskins, and Marlon Mack was a 4th rounder this year for the Colts. The hype train was rolling down the tracks for Mack all preseason as he brought an element that the Colts haven't had in their backfield in ages, explosion! Personally, I believe this move is a sign that the Colts know Frank Gore is old and has lost some of his gusto, but the front office also is aware the Colts are going to have to run the ball a lot with Tolzien prior to Luck's return.

Fantasy Goo: Marlon Mack's touches just took a hit, but I strongly believe that Gore's touches get hurt more. It will take Matt a bit to figure out the playbook, and if Mack and Gore get it going early in the season Jones may just be some much-needed depth at RB.

Matt Jones Sprains AC Joint In His Shoulder


Matt Jones sprained the AC joint in his left shoulder during an awkward tackle in Friday's preseason game against the Jets.

Fantasy Goo: It's good news after seeing him get up in pain and trot off the field holding his arm in an awkward position. An injury like this can take anywhere from 1-6 weeks to heal so he is probably done for the preseason but should be good for the regular season. Continue to monitor the situation closely and you may want to roster Rob Kelley as he came in the game and stayed in the game for the rest of the half.

Marshall Looking Good in Redskins Backfield


Marshall was touted by many as he came to Georgia. However, the back fell through the talented cracks of Chubb and Gurley during his stint as a Bulldog. Ultimately, it was the knee injuries that had most concerned. He silenced many critics by putting up a 4.31 at the combine. Now he seems to be firmly in the mix and should get some playing time behind Redskins starter Matt Jones. How much should be determined in preseason play.

Fantasy goo: This is a Pyro favorite. His ADP has risen a full round in a month. He is currently going in the last few rounds of MFL 10's, which are 20 round PPR best ball drafts. Personally, I think Marshall has a great shot, if healthy. I am very skeptical of Matt Jones at this point. However, our very own d-Rx has been signing the Counting Crows - "Mr. Jones and Me" for quite some time. From my vantage, Jones has issues with his hands, and when given the chance in weeks 10-13, he the man was given the rock 42 times and he averaged just 3.0 yards per carry.

Chris Thompson To Continue Third Down Role For Redskins In 2016


While second-year running back Matt Jones is expected to receive a vast majority of early-down work in Washington, Chris Thompson is all but locked in as the third-down specialist. (Rich Tandler on Twitter)

Fantasy Goo: Despite only playing in thirteen games in 2015, Thompson earned himself a modest target share as he saw 47 targets. He hauled in 35 of those targets for 240 yards and two touchdowns. His value is slightly higher in PPR leagues but tops out as the 55th overall back in our ECR rankings. While he remains slightly fantasy relevant, there just isn't enough value here to claim him as a solid handcuff for Matt Jones owners.

Jones to Minimize Fumbles


Jones hopes to solve his fumbling problems. In 2015, Jones put the ball on the grass 5 times. Jones experienced similar problems in 2013 at the University of Florida.

Fantasy Goo: Jones was a low end RB2/Flex rotational player for most people last year. With the absence of Alfred Morris, expect Jones to perform as a dependable RB2 behind an offensive line that ranked 1st in Rush Offense through week 6.

Matt Jones possesses impressive size for a running back (6 foot 2, 231 pounds) and, at times, used that size quite effectively. He proved to be reliable pass catcher despite catching only a few balls in college. And he showed that he's got the ability to run over defenders as well as make them miss.

With fellow RB Chris Thompson listed as Doubtful, Jones should get a larger piece of the action. Alf is not playing particularly well, averaging below 2 yards a carry for his past two games. Plus, the coaching staff said that Jones will be in line to take over on 3rd down duties for Thompson if he is a no go, which is looking that way.

Does signing Matt Jones hurt Mack & Gore?


The Indianapolis Colts claimed Matt Jones off waivers after he was cut by the Washington Redskins. Matt was a 3rd rounder 3 seasons ago by the Redskins, and Marlon Mack was a 4th rounder this year for the Colts. The hype train was rolling down the tracks for Mack all preseason as he brought an element that the Colts haven't had in their backfield in ages, explosion! Personally, I believe this move is a sign that the Colts know Frank Gore is old and has lost some of his gusto, but the front office also is aware the Colts are going to have to run the ball a lot with Tolzien prior to Luck's return.

Fantasy Goo: Marlon Mack's touches just took a hit, but I strongly believe that Gore's touches get hurt more. It will take Matt a bit to figure out the playbook, and if Mack and Gore get it going early in the season Jones may just be some much-needed depth at RB. I've always liked Matt as a player, but he's a fumble away from "oh shit", even on his new team.

PK and I really like Matt Jones in Indy if he can put the fumbling issues behind him. He and Marlon Mack could be solid tandem when Frank retires.

Fantasy Goo: This is pretty much a dynasty-only consideration at this point, and we really have no idea if he can stay on the roster. Only look for Jones in the deepest of dynasty leagues, but keep him on your watch-list everywhere, he’s got the talent if he can hold onto the ball.

Chris Thompson's looks have increased in each of the last 3 weeks. The safe be is certainly Thompson, especially in PPR. Just watch out for the playoffs. From weeks 12-16, the team only has 1 home game and that is against Carolina.

Jones, listed as questionable, did indeed run a full practice at the Saturday walk through. Jones himself, has claimed to be 100% ready to go and it appears the Questionable tag was just a precaution.

Fantasy Goo: I think Kelley will get some work, but Jones should get the majority of the 1st and 2nd down load. Thompson is indeed the pass-catcher out of the backfield. Any one of these Redskins backs could make a leap this season. Even though this is a Monday game, I would not worry about Jones playing, he should get at least 70% of the early down work.

Does signing Matt Jones hurt Mack & Gore?


The Indianapolis Colts claimed Matt Jones off waivers after he was cut by the Washington Redskins. Matt was a 3rd rounder 3 seasons ago by the Redskins, and Marlon Mack was a 4th rounder this year for the Colts. The hype train was rolling down the tracks for Mack all preseason as he brought an element that the Colts haven't had in their backfield in ages, explosion! Personally, I believe this move is a sign that the Colts know Frank Gore is old and has lost some of his gusto, but the front office also is aware the Colts are going to have to run the ball a lot with Tolzien prior to Luck's return.

Fantasy Goo: Marlon Mack's touches just took a hit, but I strongly believe that Gore's touches get hurt more. It will take Matt a bit to figure out the playbook, and if Mack and Gore get it going early in the season Jones may just be some much-needed depth at RB. I've always liked Matt as a player, but he's a fumble away from "oh shit", even on his new team.

Colts Claim Former Washington RB Matt Jones on Waivers


PK and I really like Matt Jones in Indy if he can put the fumbling issues behind him. He and Marlon Mack could be solid tandem when Frank retires.

Fantasy Goo: This is pretty much a dynasty-only consideration at this point, and we really have no idea if he can stay on the roster. Only look for Jones in the deepest of dynasty leagues, but keep him on your watch-list everywhere, he’s got the talent if he can hold onto the ball.

Matt Jones Still Plauged with Drops


Matt Jones has fumbled 3 times in the last 5 games. That brings his total to 8 fumbles in 270 touches. It undoubtedly cost him some FF Points in Week 7.

Fantasy goo: While Chris Thompson is a decent flex play if the matchup is right in PPR, this could very well be the opportunity that Rob Kelley needs to pull a Steve Miller Band, and "go on take the money and run". Chris Thompson's looks have increased in each of the last 3 weeks. The safe be is certainly Thompson, especially in PPR. Just watch out for the playoffs. From weeks 12-16, the team only has 1 home game and that is against Carolina.

Jones Listed as Questionable But says he is 100% Ready to go


Jones, listed as questionable, did indeed run a full practice at the Saturday walk through. Jones himself, has claimed to be 100% ready to go and it appears the Questionable tag was just a precaution.

Fantasy Goo: I think Kelley will get some work, but Jones should get the majority of the 1st and 2nd down load. Thompson is indeed the pass-catcher out of the backfield. Any one of these Redskins backs could make a leap this season. Even though this is a Monday game, I would not worry about Jones playing, he should get at least 70% of the early down work.

Matt Jones Sprains AC Joint In His Shoulder


Matt Jones sprained the AC joint in his left shoulder during an awkward tackle in Friday's preseason game against the Jets.

Fantasy Goo: It's good news after seeing him get up in pain and trot off the field holding his arm in an awkward position. An injury like this can take anywhere from 1-6 weeks to heal so he is probably done for the preseason but should be good for the regular season. Continue to monitor the situation closely and you may want to roster Rob Kelley as he came in the game and stayed in the game for the rest of the half.

Marshall Looking Good in Redskins Backfield


Marshall was touted by many as he came to Georgia. However, the back fell through the talented cracks of Chubb and Gurley during his stint as a Bulldog. Ultimately, it was the knee injuries that had most concerned. He silenced many critics by putting up a 4.31 at the combine. Now he seems to be firmly in the mix and should get some playing time behind Redskins starter Matt Jones. How much should be determined in preseason play.

Fantasy goo: This is a Pyro favorite. His ADP has risen a full round in a month. He is currently going in the last few rounds of MFL 10's, which are 20 round PPR best ball drafts. Personally, I think Marshall has a great shot, if healthy. I am very skeptical of Matt Jones at this point. However, our very own d-Rx has been signing the Counting Crows - "Mr. Jones and Me" for quite some time. From my vantage, Jones has issues with his hands, and when given the chance in weeks 10-13, he the man was given the rock 42 times and he averaged just 3.0 yards per carry.

Chris Thompson To Continue Third Down Role For Redskins In 2016


While second-year running back Matt Jones is expected to receive a vast majority of early-down work in Washington, Chris Thompson is all but locked in as the third-down specialist. (Rich Tandler on Twitter)

Fantasy Goo: Despite only playing in thirteen games in 2015, Thompson earned himself a modest target share as he saw 47 targets. He hauled in 35 of those targets for 240 yards and two touchdowns. His value is slightly higher in PPR leagues but tops out as the 55th overall back in our ECR rankings. While he remains slightly fantasy relevant, there just isn't enough value here to claim him as a solid handcuff for Matt Jones owners.

Jones to Minimize Fumbles


Jones hopes to solve his fumbling problems. In 2015, Jones put the ball on the grass 5 times. Jones experienced similar problems in 2013 at the University of Florida.

Fantasy Goo: Jones was a low end RB2/Flex rotational player for most people last year. With the absence of Alfred Morris, expect Jones to perform as a dependable RB2 behind an offensive line that ranked 1st in Rush Offense through week 6.

Matt Jones to be Washington’s starter next season.


Matt Jones possesses impressive size for a running back (6 foot 2, 231 pounds) and, at times, used that size quite effectively. He proved to be reliable pass catcher despite catching only a few balls in college. And he showed that he's got the ability to run over defenders as well as make them miss. (Remember the screen pass he took 78 yards for a touchdown against New Orleans?)--Tarik El-Bashir

Jones Should be in Line for More Work


With fellow RB Chris Thompson listed as Doubtful, Jones should get a larger piece of the action. Alf is not playing particularly well, averaging below 2 yards a carry for his past two games. Plus, the coaching staff said that Jones will be in line to take over on 3rd down duties for Thompson if he is a no go, which is looking that way.

Does signing Matt Jones hurt Mack & Gore?


The Indianapolis Colts claimed Matt Jones off waivers after he was cut by the Washington Redskins. Matt was a 3rd rounder 3 seasons ago by the Redskins, and Marlon Mack was a 4th rounder this year for the Colts. The hype train was rolling down the tracks for Mack all preseason as he brought an element that the Colts haven't had in their backfield in ages, explosion! Personally, I believe this move is a sign that the Colts know Frank Gore is old and has lost some of his gusto, but the front office also is aware the Colts are going to have to run the ball a lot with Tolzien prior to Luck's return.

Fantasy Goo: Marlon Mack's touches just took a hit, but I strongly believe that Gore's touches get hurt more. It will take Matt a bit to figure out the playbook, and if Mack and Gore get it going early in the season Jones may just be some much-needed depth at RB.

Marshall Looking Good in Redskins Backfield


Marshall was touted by many as he came to Georgia. However, the back fell through the talented cracks of Chubb and Gurley during his stint as a Bulldog. Ultimately, it was the knee injuries that had most concerned. He silenced many critics by putting up a 4.31 at the combine. Now he seems to be firmly in the mix and should get some playing time behind Redskins starter Matt Jones. How much should be determined in preseason play.

Fantasy goo: This is a Pyro favorite. His ADP has risen a full round in a month. He is currently going in the last few rounds of MFL 10's, which are 20 round PPR best ball drafts. Personally, I think Marshall has a great shot, if healthy. I am very skeptical of Matt Jones at this point. However, our very own d-Rx has been signing the Counting Crows - "Mr. Jones and Me" for quite some time. From my vantage, Jones has issues with his hands, and when given the chance in weeks 10-13, he the man was given the rock 42 times and he averaged just 3.0 yards per carry.

Chris Thompson To Continue Third Down Role For Redskins In 2016


While second-year running back Matt Jones is expected to receive a vast majority of early-down work in Washington, Chris Thompson is all but locked in as the third-down specialist. (Rich Tandler on Twitter)

Fantasy Goo: Despite only playing in thirteen games in 2015, Thompson earned himself a modest target share as he saw 47 targets. He hauled in 35 of those targets for 240 yards and two touchdowns. His value is slightly higher in PPR leagues but tops out as the 55th overall back in our ECR rankings. While he remains slightly fantasy relevant, there just isn't enough value here to claim him as a solid handcuff for Matt Jones owners.

Jones to Minimize Fumbles


Jones hopes to solve his fumbling problems. In 2015, Jones put the ball on the grass 5 times. Jones experienced similar problems in 2013 at the University of Florida.

Fantasy Goo: Jones was a low end RB2/Flex rotational player for most people last year. With the absence of Alfred Morris, expect Jones to perform as a dependable RB2 behind an offensive line that ranked 1st in Rush Offense through week 6.

Matt Jones possesses impressive size for a running back (6 foot 2, 231 pounds) and, at times, used that size quite effectively. He proved to be reliable pass catcher despite catching only a few balls in college. And he showed that he's got the ability to run over defenders as well as make them miss.

With fellow RB Chris Thompson listed as Doubtful, Jones should get a larger piece of the action. Alf is not playing particularly well, averaging below 2 yards a carry for his past two games. Plus, the coaching staff said that Jones will be in line to take over on 3rd down duties for Thompson if he is a no go, which is looking that way.

Does signing Matt Jones hurt Mack & Gore?


The Indianapolis Colts claimed Matt Jones off waivers after he was cut by the Washington Redskins. Matt was a 3rd rounder 3 seasons ago by the Redskins, and Marlon Mack was a 4th rounder this year for the Colts. The hype train was rolling down the tracks for Mack all preseason as he brought an element that the Colts haven't had in their backfield in ages, explosion! Personally, I believe this move is a sign that the Colts know Frank Gore is old and has lost some of his gusto, but the front office also is aware the Colts are going to have to run the ball a lot with Tolzien prior to Luck's return.

Fantasy Goo: Marlon Mack's touches just took a hit, but I strongly believe that Gore's touches get hurt more. It will take Matt a bit to figure out the playbook, and if Mack and Gore get it going early in the season Jones may just be some much-needed depth at RB. I've always liked Matt as a player, but he's a fumble away from "oh shit", even on his new team.

PK and I really like Matt Jones in Indy if he can put the fumbling issues behind him. He and Marlon Mack could be solid tandem when Frank retires.

Fantasy Goo: This is pretty much a dynasty-only consideration at this point, and we really have no idea if he can stay on the roster. Only look for Jones in the deepest of dynasty leagues, but keep him on your watch-list everywhere, he’s got the talent if he can hold onto the ball.

Chris Thompson's looks have increased in each of the last 3 weeks. The safe be is certainly Thompson, especially in PPR. Just watch out for the playoffs. From weeks 12-16, the team only has 1 home game and that is against Carolina.

Fantasy Goo: I think Kelley will get some work, but Jones should get the majority of the 1st and 2nd down load. Thompson is indeed the pass-catcher out of the backfield. Any one of these Redskins backs could make a leap this season. Even though this is a Monday game, I would not worry about Jones playing, he should get at least 70% of the early down work.

Personally, I believe this move is a sign that the Colts know Frank Gore is old and has lost some of his gusto, but the front office also is aware the Colts are going to have to run the ball a lot with Tolzien prior to Luck's return.

Fantasy Goo: Marlon Mack's touches just took a hit, but I strongly believe that Gore's touches get hurt more. It will take Matt a bit to figure out the playbook, and if Mack and Gore get it going early in the season Jones may just be some much-needed depth at RB. I've always liked Matt as a player, but he's a fumble away from "oh shit", even on his new team.

Does signing Matt Jones hurt Mack & Gore?


The Indianapolis Colts claimed Matt Jones off waivers after he was cut by the Washington Redskins. Matt was a 3rd rounder 3 seasons ago by the Redskins, and Marlon Mack was a 4th rounder this year for the Colts. The hype train was rolling down the tracks for Mack all preseason as he brought an element that the Colts haven't had in their backfield in ages, explosion! Personally, I believe this move is a sign that the Colts know Frank Gore is old and has lost some of his gusto, but the front office also is aware the Colts are going to have to run the ball a lot with Tolzien prior to Luck's return.

Colts Claim Former Washington RB Matt Jones on Waivers


PK and I really like Matt Jones in Indy if he can put the fumbling issues behind him. He and Marlon Mack could be solid tandem when Frank retires.

Fantasy Goo: This is pretty much a dynasty-only consideration at this point, and we really have no idea if he can stay on the roster. Only look for Jones in the deepest of dynasty leagues, but keep him on your watch-list everywhere, he’s got the talent if he can hold onto the ball.

Matt Jones Still Plauged with Drops


Matt Jones has fumbled 3 times in the last 5 games. That brings his total to 8 fumbles in 270 touches. It undoubtedly cost him some FF Points in Week 7.

Fantasy goo: While Chris Thompson is a decent flex play if the matchup is right in PPR, this could very well be the opportunity that Rob Kelley needs to pull a Steve Miller Band, and "go on take the money and run". Chris Thompson's looks have increased in each of the last 3 weeks. The safe be is certainly Thompson, especially in PPR. Just watch out for the playoffs. From weeks 12-16, the team only has 1 home game and that is against Carolina.

Jones Listed as Questionable But says he is 100% Ready to go


Jones, listed as questionable, did indeed run a full practice at the Saturday walk through. Jones himself, has claimed to be 100% ready to go and it appears the Questionable tag was just a precaution.

Fantasy Goo: I think Kelley will get some work, but Jones should get the majority of the 1st and 2nd down load. Thompson is indeed the pass-catcher out of the backfield. Any one of these Redskins backs could make a leap this season. Even though this is a Monday game, I would not worry about Jones playing, he should get at least 70% of the early down work.

Fantasy Goo: Matt Jones was touted as the man when they let Alfred Morris go. During this preseason Matt Jones sprained his AC joint. There was lots of talk about how sneaky good Rob Kelley is shaping up to be in case Matt Jones could not take the field for week 1. However, Matt Jones should be there to carry the heavy lifting. Rob Kelley and Chris Thompson should see the field as well. Matt Jones may be partially forgotten as of week 1 so; a big performance will be needed to make owners consider using him in the future weeks ahead.

Matt Jones Sprains AC Joint In His Shoulder


Matt Jones sprained the AC joint in his left shoulder during an awkward tackle in Friday's preseason game against the Jets.

Fantasy Goo: It's good news after seeing him get up in pain and trot off the field holding his arm in an awkward position. An injury like this can take anywhere from 1-6 weeks to heal so he is probably done for the preseason but should be good for the regular season. Continue to monitor the situation closely and you may want to roster Rob Kelley as he came in the game and stayed in the game for the rest of the half.

Marshall Looking Good in Redskins Backfield


Marshall was touted by many as he came to Georgia. However, the back fell through the talented cracks of Chubb and Gurley during his stint as a Bulldog. Ultimately, it was the knee injuries that had most concerned. He silenced many critics by putting up a 4.31 at the combine. Now he seems to be firmly in the mix and should get some playing time behind Redskins starter Matt Jones. How much should be determined in preseason play.

Fantasy goo: This is a Pyro favorite. His ADP has risen a full round in a month. He is currently going in the last few rounds of MFL 10's, which are 20 round PPR best ball drafts. Personally, I think Marshall has a great shot, if healthy. I am very skeptical of Matt Jones at this point. However, our very own d-Rx has been signing the Counting Crows - "Mr. Jones and Me" for quite some time. From my vantage, Jones has issues with his hands, and when given the chance in weeks 10-13, he the man was given the rock 42 times and he averaged just 3.0 yards per carry.

Chris Thompson To Continue Third Down Role For Redskins In 2016


While second-year running back Matt Jones is expected to receive a vast majority of early-down work in Washington, Chris Thompson is all but locked in as the third-down specialist. (Rich Tandler on Twitter)

Fantasy Goo: Despite only playing in thirteen games in 2015, Thompson earned himself a modest target share as he saw 47 targets. He hauled in 35 of those targets for 240 yards and two touchdowns. His value is slightly higher in PPR leagues but tops out as the 55th overall back in our ECR rankings. While he remains slightly fantasy relevant, there just isn't enough value here to claim him as a solid handcuff for Matt Jones owners.

Jones to Minimize Fumbles


Jones hopes to solve his fumbling problems. In 2015, Jones put the ball on the grass 5 times. Jones experienced similar problems in 2013 at the University of Florida.

Fantasy Goo: Jones was a low end RB2/Flex rotational player for most people last year. With the absence of Alfred Morris, expect Jones to perform as a dependable RB2 behind an offensive line that ranked 1st in Rush Offense through week 6.

Matt Jones to be Washington’s starter next season.


Matt Jones possesses impressive size for a running back (6 foot 2, 231 pounds) and, at times, used that size quite effectively. He proved to be reliable pass catcher despite catching only a few balls in college. And he showed that he's got the ability to run over defenders as well as make them miss. (Remember the screen pass he took 78 yards for a touchdown against New Orleans?)--Tarik El-Bashir

Jones Should be in Line for More Work


With fellow RB Chris Thompson listed as Doubtful, Jones should get a larger piece of the action. Alf is not playing particularly well, averaging below 2 yards a carry for his past two games. Plus, the coaching staff said that Jones will be in line to take over on 3rd down duties for Thompson if he is a no go, which is looking that way.

Alfred Morris is the "bell-cow" but Matt Jones is making a serious dent in that situation. The more he plays the more he earns. He has great keeper and dynasty value, but limited in redraft.
