Matt Jones INACTIVE again in Week 11

Matt Jones is inactive for the Washington Redskins again in Week 11, as Robert Kelley has taken over the starting running back role.

Fantasy Impact

Matt Jones being a healthy scratch in back-to-back weeks is obviously terrible news for his value, both short term and long term. As you are finalizing your roster for a playoff push, Jones should not be part of your plans.

Matt Jones INACTIVE for Week 10

Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones is inactive for Week 10.

Fantasy Impact

Jones is a healthy scratch on Sunday against Minnesota. He lost his starting job to Robert Kelley due to a previous knee injury that sidelined him in Week 8, as well as ball security issues that plagued him throughout his career. Kelley is a low-end RB2 in a difficult matchup with the Vikings, whose defense is ranked 23rd in fantasy points allowed to opposing rushers this year.

Matt Jones ruled out for Week 8

Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones (knee) has been ruled out for Week 8.

Fantasy Impact

Jones will not play in Sunday's game against the Bengals in London due to a knee injury. With Jones sidelined, Rob Kelley is expected to draw the start while Chris Thompson assumes his usual change of pace role in the offense. Thompson is the most trustworthy running back on the Redskins for Week 8. He should be considered a low-end RB2 bordering the RB3 tier whose value peaks in PPR scoring formats.

Matt Jones misses practice due to knee injury

Matt Jones sat out of Redskins practice on Wednesday due to knee soreness. Head coach Jay Gruden said that Jones had some knee pain while cutting, which led to the decision to hold him out of practice on Wednesday,

Fantasy Impact

The fantasy stock of Matt Jones continues to drop, as he was on track to lose touches heading into Week 8 prior to any injury concerns. While he may still be in line to play on Sunday, he appears to be a flex option at best on this bye-heavy week.

Matt Jones struggles in loss to Detroit

Matt Jones rushed for just 27 yards on 10 caries on Sunday, and lost a fumble on a carry inside the five yard line as the Redskins were headed for a score against the Lions.

Fantasy Impact

It was a disappointing performance for Jones, who clearly has not shaken his fumbling problems. He is just one week removed from a 100-yard game, but looks like a RB3/flex at best. His ten touches were the fewest he has received since Week 1, and appears to be in jeopardy of surrendering touches to Chris Thompson and Robert Kelley going forward.
