Jacoby Jones reels in long touchdown for Ravens, fantasy owners vs. Jets

Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

The Ravens got a much needed boost in the receiving game from Jacoby Jones on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones was too much to handle for the New York Jets secondary and special teams unit on Sunday.

Jones routinely ripped off big gains in the return game, but his highlight of the day came late in the third quarter to put the game away. With strong winds at the Ravens offense's back, Jones split the Jets' coverage and caught a 66-yard touchdown pass that safety Ed Reed misjudged. Jones finished with four catches for 103 yards and the score, and added 146 return yards.

Fantasy Spin: This is the first time Jones eclipsed the century mark in receiving yards this season, and also the first time he even eclipsed the half-century mark. Much of his snaps had been taken by Marlon Brown this season, but with the rookie ailing, Jones was reinserted into his prominent spot and cashed in against a woeful Jets secondary.

Jones is not an option to bank on going forward as he is too dependent on splash plays to make his fantasy worth, and continues to share time with Brown and Tandon Doss in two-wide sets. He remains off the radar in leagues that do not award points for return yards.
