Fantasy Advice: Anytime a player is dealing with an injury, but still has the chance to play that weekend, the first practice that is missed is Wednesday’s, so it is too early to really cast judgement here. HOWEVER, the fact that Jones IS dealing with a nagging hamstring is a concern simply because of how quickly they can be re-aggravated during a game if the said player does in fact play. If Jones, however, misses Thursday’s practice, you can be sure he will sit and Harry Douglas will start, but either way, if you have another option, I would use it as Jones comes with a hefty risk tag this week regardless.
