Green Bay Packers wide receiver James Jones led the Packers in receiving in Week 8. Against the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Packers were short of wide receivers with Greg Jennings and Jordy Nelson sidelined due to injury. So far in 2012, Jones has been the pass-catcher that has been stepped up for the team.
While Jones did not have a huge day, he led with 7 receptions for 78 yards. However, he failed to find the end zone after having a couple multi-touchdown days this season.
Fantasy Analysis: Jones is a hot fantasy option right now. With a banged up receiving corps in Green Bay, Jones has emerged as "the guy" in the passing game. And as NFL fans are well aware, the Packers are all about the passing game. With Aaron Rodgers at the helm, and Jennings and Nelson not 100 percent, Jones is a must-start.
For those who were able to pick him up on waivers earlier in the season, you are finding out you now have a top-end flex option. Jones has value in all fantasy formats, including PPR leagues.
