James Jones will likely be one of the top Week 5 fantasy waiver wire targets with Greg Jennings' playing status unclear. We break down the fantasy implications.

James Jones is expected to be one of the top fantasy waiver wire targets in Week 5 after hauling in five receptions for 56 yards and two touchdowns during the Green Bay Packers' win over the New Orleans Saints. With Greg Jennings potentially out this week with a nagging groin injury, Jones stands to see a lot of targets against the Indianapolis Colts as the Packers' No. 2 receiver behind Jordy Nelson.

Fantasy Impact: Jones has been a very inconsistent fantasy player throughout his career due to his spot on the depth chart. He should be one of Aaron Rodgers' favorite targets if Jennings sits, however. Rodgers finally seemed to get in a groove Sunday, and a matchup against the Colts is enticing. Expect Jones to reap the benefits.
