Jones has missed the team's last two games since suffering a knee injury versus the Ravens in Week 6, although he returned to practice at a limited basis on Friday and Saturday. The extra day of rest is to Jones' benefit, as the Packers play on Monday night versus the Bears instead of the usual Sunday afternoon slot.
Fantasy Spin: Despite the encouraging practice reports, this is still a gamble for fantasy owners. It would be tough to bank on a player's return after two straight missed games given the Monday night time slot, because if Jones was to sit, there would be hardly any options left to plug into his owners' lineups.
Should Jones sit, expect the usual boost in Value to Jordy Nelson, Jarrett Boykin and Myles White. If he plays, Nelson's value remains intact, although Boykin and White would become desperation flex plays. With six teams on a bye this week, fantasy owners could very well have no choice but to gamble on Jones' health.
