Felix Jones injury update: Questionable status puts fantasy value up in the air

US PRESSWIRE

Felix Jones is questionable for Week 8 against the Giants. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys RB Felix Jones (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the New York Giants. Jones sat out of practice while dealing with knee and neck injuries, and was limited on Thursday and Friday. Despite the "questionable" tag, the Cowboys fully expect him to start Sunday.

Jones had 136 rushing yards on 33 carries and one TD the last two games, filling in for DeMarco Murray (foot).

Fantasy Impact: With Murray still week-to-week, Jones is the Cowboys' feature back for now, but he's having injury issues of his own and struggled with inconsistency his whole career, so expect to see lots of Phillip Tanner this week.

There's a reason the former first-round pick is considered a bust - he's capable of putting in good games like Week 6 (105 total yards, 5.1 YPC), but he's also capable of turning back into a pumpkin. Start him at your own risk in fantasy.
