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

Taiwan Jones (hamstring) was limited all week and is listed as questionable for the matchup with the Steelers.

Analysis: Jones was getting all sorts of press for becoming Darren McFadden's backup, but his value has hit the skids in a major way. He's the west-coast equivalent of David Wilson for not protecting the football even though he has game-breaking speed. Mike Goodson is also questionable, so if Goodson sits and Jones plays, Jones could serves as a top-50 RB for those owners that are extremely desperate. He doesn't have much to offer in standard leagues and Mike Goodson is a much better player to own.
