Taiwan Jones will compete for playing time as a reserve running back this season. He shared backup duties behind Latavius Murray with Roy Helu in 2015, and Jones had 16 carries for 74 yards and seven catches for 106 yards and a touchdown. We don't see a dramatic increase in his stats on the horizon, especially after Oakland drafted rookie DeAndre Washington, and Jones is not worth drafting in the majority of leagues.
Jones (knee) is active Sunday against the Packers. After missing practice on Wednesday, he put in a limited session on Thursday and a full session on Friday. He'll function as the team's primary kick returner, but he'll also see occasional snaps at running back.
Jones (knee) is probable for Sunday's game against the Packers. The primary returner for the Raiders was able to practice fully Friday, so it appears as if he'll be good to go Sunday against the Packers. Jones hasn't seen many opportunities out of the backfield despite being listed as Latavius Murray's primary back up, so he shouldn't be thought of as a realistic fantasy contributor this week.
Jones rushed for two yards on one carry in Sunday's win over the Broncos. Jones returned to action on Sunday after missing last week's game with a knee injury, and he received just his second carry in the last four games. The fifth-year running back has been used as the Raiders' primary return-man for most of the season, and he's only record 16 carries for 74 yards across 13 games. Jones might receive carries from time-to-time when Latavius Murray needs a break, but he shouldn't be considered a realistic fantasy option at the running back position.
Jones (knee) is active Sunday against the Broncos. Jones was limited in practice on Thursday and Friday, and he'll be ready to go against the Broncos. He'll function as the Raiders primary kick returner.
Jones (knee) is questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Broncos. Jones was limited in practice Thursday and Friday, so it's no certainty that the Raiders' No. 1 kick returner could make an appearance Sunday against the Broncos. That being said, the 27-year-old should be considered more of a game-time decision.
