Considering Golladay was out the first two weeks, you can say that it's been a disappointing start to the season for Jones, who has just 78 yards through two games. He has the same number of targets as Amendola and just one more than the rookie Quintez Cephus. The Cardinals haven't been a very giving team to wide receivers thus far, as the 46.9 PPR points they've allowed to them is the lowest in the league. It certainly helps that they've played just one receiver who was a legitimate threat (Terry McLaurin), and he was able to post 125 yards and a touchdown. Last year, against this defense (without Patrick Peterson, who was suspended), Jones caught 4-of-4 passes for 56 yards. That's an interesting number because Jones has not topped that number in each of his last six games. He's becoming more and more volatile, but when the total for a game is 54.5, you want to believe he's going to get a slice of that pie. He's a risk/reward WR3/4 this week.It appeared that Jones may have lost the starting job last week. It's a shame because it was almost as if the Bucs were looking for a reason, but he gave them one when he botched the handoff leading to a turnover. Bruce Arians said after the game that he's not planning on giving the starting job to Fournette, and that he likes him to come into the game later and finish teams off. This could very easily become a Peyton Barber/Jones situation from last year where we never seemingly know which one to start. For now, it appears that Jones hasn't lost all hope, but he's on thin ice every week, which can't be good for his mental state entering a game. The Broncos have allowed 100-yard rushers in back-to-back games to open the season, as both Derrick Henry and James Conner were able to get there. That's a big change from last year when they allowed two 100-yard rushers all season. Oddly enough, Fournette was one of them when he rattled off 225 yards on 29 carries in their Week 4 matchup. The bottom line with this matchup is that we have a lack of confidence in which running back to trust. Jones appears to be the 1A but he presents so much risk that he can't be played as anything more than a low-end RB3 with tons of risk. Meanwhile, Fournette is going to get some touches, though how many depends on if Jones screws something up. Fournette should be considered a high-end RB4 who has some upside, sure, but also has a five-touch floor if Jones is running hot.

Jones has been a consistent option for your lineup in Golladay's absence, but with it appearing like Golladay will play this week, Jones moves back to a WR3 that needs to score or break off a big play to finish higher. In a matchup that I'm expecting points to go up on the board though, Jones has a solid chance of finding the end zone. He's a high-end WR3 this week in my rankings.Jones was able to cash in last week and find the end zone, but it looks like the fumbled hand-off was enough for Bruce Arians to send him to the bench. It's unfair, but it looks like Jones has suddenly lost his stranglehold on this backfield. He can't be trusted anywhere near your starting lineup this week and is now in RB4 territory.
