Matt Jones quiet in Week 4

Matt Jones carried the ball four times for 11 yards in Week 4 action against the Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact

Jones continues to see few touches and comes in only to spell Frank Gore or to provide a change of pace. He received less touches than Robert Turbin, and is not a viable fantasy option at this point.

Matt Jones carries once in Colts debut

Matt Jones carried once for three yards in Week 3 action against the Browns, marking his debut for the Colts.

Fantasy Impact

Jones doesn't seem to be pushing for carries yet, but figures to be in the mix if Gore slows down or misses time. Keep Jones on the radar, but there is no reason to add him yet.

Matt Jones promoted to active roster

Indianapolis Colts beat writer Zak Keefer is reporting running back Matt Jones was promoted from the practice squad to the active roster Friday.

Fantasy Impact

With Marlon Mack already ruled out for Sunday's matchup against the Browns, the Colts had a void at running back in which they filled with Jones. While not appearing in a game as of yet in 2017, he'll more than likely be active for Week 3 in a limited role behind Frank Gore and Robert Turbin.

Matt Jones waived by Colts Saturday

Matt Jones was waived by the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Jones was claimed by the Colts last week after being cut by the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Impact

Jones lasted just a week with his new team, as the Colts decided to waive him on Saturday. He was already behind Frank Gore, Robert Turbin, and rookie Marlon Mack on the depth chart, so playing time and touches were going to be hard to come by for the former starter. He may wind up on another team as depth or may even return to the Colts at some point if he clears waivers, but, for now, he is not relevant for fantasy.

Matt Jones finds a new home in Indianapolis

Running Back Matt Jones was claimed by the Colts off waivers.

Fantasy Impact

Jones landed in a best case scenario. Assuming a return to health for Andrew Luck (which is looking more and more dicey at this point) the Colts have a fantasy friendly offense with an unclear backfield rotation. Dogged by fumbilitis in his first two years in the league, Jones has a career 3.9 yards per carry average and can contribute catching the ball out of the backfield. He has an uphill climb back to relevance, but keep him on your watch lists, and possibly try to buy low in deeper dynasty formats.
