Green Bay Packers wide receiver James Jones caught seven passes for 80 yards in the Week 12 tie with the Minnesota Vikings. Jones was targeted a team high twelve targets. This is Jones best game since Week 5. On the year, Jones has 34 receptions for 545 yards and and two touchdowns. He was averaging 58.1 yards per game going into Week 12.
Fantasy impact: Jones has been somewhat off the fantasy radar but this game gives hope he might be fantasy relevant again. Jones got almost twice as many targets as Jordy Nelson who finished with four catches on seven targets. The Packers have now turned to Matt Flynn as their quarterback and Flynn targeted Jones seven times in the game. Jones isn't a must start but could be a solid flex play. The :Packers will face the Detroit Lions and their very giving secondary on Thanksgiving. The Lions are giving up the second most fantasy points to wide receivers.
