Felix Jones injury update: Probable to start, not probable to help fantasy owners

US PRESSWIRE

Felix Jones is probable for Week 9 against the Falcons. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys RB Felix Jones (knee, shoulder) is officially listed as probable for Sunday Night Football against the Atlanta Falcons. Jones was limited in practice all week and couldn't get in a full session, but he is still expected to suit up and will get the start with DeMarco Murray out again.

Jones' banged up knee and shoulder may explain his struggles -- he had only 19 yards on 13 carries last week.

Fantasy Impact: Jones has been so ineffective the past two weeks that Phillip Tanner could see more snaps. It seems clear that his 92-yard, one-TD Week 6 was a fluke, and the team is playing him only because Murray is out.

Fantasy owners probably shouldn't bother with Jones this week, even against Atlanta's 23rd-ranked rush defense.
