Felix Jones listed questionable with DeMarco Murray out: Fantasy implications

Felix Jones is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants on Friday's injury report released by the Cowboys. We break down the fantasy implications.

Felix Jones is listed as questionable for Sunday's game between the Dallas Cowboys and the New York Giants, according to ESPN. Jones has been the presumed starter at running back for Dallas throughout the week with DeMarco Murray ruled out.

Jones is dealing with a bruised knee suffered last week against the Carolina Panthers. The running back was held out of practice Wednesday, but was able to practice on a limited basis Thursday and Friday while wearing a knee brace.

Fantasy Impact: Jones is still expected to play, but he isn't guaranteed to carry a full workload or even make it through a full four quarters of contact without suffering some other ailment. Phillip Tanner should also see a significant role, though he lacks that the explosiveness that Jones and Murray bring to the position.

Jones could be worth Flex consideration in standard formats for desperate owners. The matchup isn't a good one, however, and Jones is clearly less than 100 percent. Expect a boom-or-bust performance from Jones, dependent on whether he or not he can break a run or two into the open field.
