  • Bears' Velus Jones: Handles two rushing attempts

    Jones rushed twice for six yards in the Bears' 31-10 loss to the Jets on Sunday.

    Jones has 45 rushing yards and 24 receiving yards this season, and his biggest impact is as a kick returner. Aside from leagues that include kick return yardage, Jones has yet to become a fantasy factor as a receiver.

  • Bears' Velus Jones: Healthy scratch

    Jones (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

    Jones will be inactive for the first time since Week 3, though his absences early in the season were due to injury. He's now lost his role with both N'Keal Harry and new addition Chase Claypool active to take on Miami. Jones' absence is likely to be felt most on special teams, where Khalil Herbert and Trestan Ebner are candidates to take over as return specialists.

  • Bears' Velus Jones: Productive as rusher

    Jones caught one pass for five yards and rushed twice for 33 yards In the Bears' 49-29 loss to the Cowboys on Sunday.

    Jones had at least 15 yards on each of his rushing attempts, but he just missed out on a big play when Justin Fields slightly overthrew him on a deep pass after the receiver ran past a pair of defenders. With this being his most productive game of the season, the rookie will need to post more consistent production before being a player who can be relied upon in fantasy lineups.

  • Bears' Velus Jones: Loses costly fumble

    Jones rushed once for eight yards, caught one pass for 10 yards and lost a fumble on a punt return in the Bears' 12-7 loss to the Commanders on Thursday.

    Jones played 12 snaps and had a minor role in the Bears offense. However, his lost fumble on a punt in the fourth quarter gave the Commanders the ball deep in the red zone, which led to Washington scoring the game-winning touchdown. On the season, Jones has been targeted five times, which puts a limit on his upside until his role increases.

  • Bears' Velus Jones: Scores on first NFL reception

    Jones caught a nine-yard touchdown in the Bears' 29-22 loss to the Vikings on Sunday.

    The rookie was targeted once on a shovel pass in the red zone. He also returned a pair of kickoffs for 39 yards. In a low-volume passing attack, Jones will need his role to expand before he can be considered a reliable fantasy option aside from leagues that include return yardage.

  • Bears' Velus Jones: Makes NFL debut

    Jones wasn't targeted in the Bears' 20-12 loss to the Giants on Sunday.

    Jones did contribute by returning two kickoffs for 44 yards and a pair of punts for 19 yards. He missed part of training camp along with the first three games of the season with a hamstring injury. It's possible he begins to see more work on offense in the near future, but with the Bears averaging fewer than 20 pass attempts per week, there may not be many targets to go around.
