Surprising Green Bay Packers wide receiver James Jones (hamstring) is listed as probable for the Week 5 game against St. Louis.
Despite being limited throughout the week of practice, Jones doesn't seem to be in real danger of sitting out. He should be a pretty frequent visitor to the end zone this season, but his low target total (21 in four games) suggests he'll fall far short of his current pace of 1,268 yards.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver James Jones (hamstring) was limited at practice Wednesday, ESPN.com reports.
Jones has been a revelation in his return to Green Bay this season, leading the team with 317 receiving yards and matching Randall Cobb 's four touchdowns catches for most on the Packers. Continue to watch Jones' status throughout the week to make sure he's available Sunday versus the St. Louis Rams .
Green Bay Packers wide receiver James Jones caught 5 of 6 targets for 98 yards in Sunday's 17-3 win at San Francisco Dons .
Jones made a ridiculous 38-yard grab on the sideline at one point in the second half, showing great chemistry with Aaron Rodgers . The veteran wideout failed to score a touchdown in a game for the first time this season, although he's now put up back-to-back strong yardage totals. With Davante Adams (ankle) still hobbling, expect Jones to continue to be one of Aaron Rodgers' favorite targets, especially in the red zone. Next week, Jones and the Packers will take on the St. Louis Rams at home.
Jones' successful return to Green Bay continued Monday night, as the 31-year-old scored his fourth touchdown of the campaign with a 27-yard reception before halftime and then sprung loose for a 52-yard gain during the second half.
On the whole, Jones' 139 receiving yards Monday evening marked the third best single-game total of his nine-year career. As a top target in the Packers' potent passing game, Jones has emerged as a must-start fantasy player to begin this season.
Jones has scored three touchdowns in two games, despite having just five catches and eight targets. Davante Adams will likely draw more targets than the veteran, but Aaron Rodgers still seems to like throwing to Jones near the end zone. Jones thus has a reasonable ceiling every week, though his uncertain volume and touchdown-dependent style mean he also has a very low floor. The Packers face the Chiefs on Monday Night Football in Week 3.
