It's almost not worth worrying about the matchups with Jones, who has plenty of examples of succeeding despite going against elite corners (such as Xavier Rhodes), and then being quiet in better matchups. The best course of action is just to roll Jones out there as a WR2 and close your eyes. To the extent you do consider the matchup, this week is far from a bad one, as Jones abused the Bears and Kyle Fuller for 85 yards and a touchdown in the teams' meeting a few weeks prior. He should get plenty of work in this one and make a WR2. Jackson has been just a boom or bust option this season, and is not someone that fantasy owners can rely on at this point in the season. He'll likely see a healthy dose of Desmond Trufant on Monday night against the Falcons and although that wouldn't have been enough to downgrade Jackson in the past, it probably is this season. There's always a chance Jackson has a huge game, but it's hard to consider anything but a borderline WR4 right now.

Jones has a decent matchup this week, he is a decent WR3 matchup against the Bears 17th ranked fantasy receiver defense.
