Taiwan Jones is questionable. We break down the fantasy implications.

Taiwan Jones (ribs) sat out of practice on Wednesday and was limited on Thursday and Friday. He is questionable for Sunday against the Dolphins.

Analysis: Taiwan's ball handling was questionable at best on Monday night by putting the ball on the turf a couple times. His poor play has dropped him on the RB totem pole and it looks like Mike Goodson is the better back to own. A few beat writers pegged Jones as the backup to Jones earlier this month, but nothing will make the coaches lose faith like fumbling. He has minimal fantasy value right now and he shouldn't only be owned in extremely deep leagues.
