Taiwan Jones questionable for Sunday

Taiwan Jones has a knee issue and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

Fantasy Impact

Jones has minimal value in PPR leagues, but you should look for better options for either your playoff lineup or final week to qualify.

Taiwan Jones with a critical fumble

Taiwan Jones carried twice for zero yards and caught one pass for six yards before fumbling on a kick return. He was benched for the remainder of the game.

Fantasy Impact

Jones has always had ball security issues. That was one of the reasons the prior regime moved him to cornerback. It's too bad as he is explosive and was carving out a nice niche for himself. After Murray went down with a concussion, it was Marcel Reece who took over the running back duties.

Taiwan Jones scores a dazzling touchdown

Taiwan Jones carried two times for five yards Sunday against the New York Jets. He also caught a simple dumpoff and juked four defenders en route to a 59 yard touchdown.

Fantasy Impact

Jones is fast, explosive, and has been compared to Jamaal Charles. If Murray was to go down, I don't think Jones would fill into his role though. It would probably be RBBC with Marcel Reece and Roy Helu. With that said, Bill Musgrave is giving him playing time and getting him in space. With his explosion, he can take it to the house on any touch. He's worth a spot in leagues with deep benches.

Taiwan Jones has over 50 total yards against the Chargers

Taiwan Jones had three carries for 35 yards and two receptions (on three targets) for 17 yards against San Diego on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

It was Taiwan's first meaningful game this season, as he more than doubled his rushing total for the year, and nearly did the same for his receiving numbers. Jones shouldn't be counted on even as a handcuff, however, as this was just a trickle-down effect from the huge offensive day by Oakland. Keep him on the wire.

Taiwan Jones spells Latavius Murray

Taiwan Jones carried two times for nine yards and caught one ball for six yards Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Impact

Jones is currently second on the depth chart behind Latavius Murray. He has looked good in the limited action that he's received. Roy Helu is being brought along slowly from a preseason hamstring injury and should claim this role in the future. Should being the key word. Jones has the opportunity to seize the backup role if he continues to play well.
