James Jones active vs. Bears, can be put back into fantasy lineups

Andy Lyons

James Jones makes his return from a knee injury on Monday night. We break down the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver James Jones is officially (active/inactive) for Monday night's game against the Chicago Bears.

James missed the past three games after suffering a knee injury in Week 6. He got in limited practice this week and was listed as questionable on Saturday's injury report. Jones was considered a game time decision, and the team decided to let him give it a go. He had 20 catches for 349 yards and two touchdowns in five games before the injury.

Fantasy impact: The Packers will likely try to limit Jones' snaps, but he should still be a part of the three-wideout sets which are a cornerstone of the Packers' offense. Jarrett Boykin has played well in his place and is still worth starting in fantasy even with Jones back in. Both players have WR3 upside against a collapsing Bears defense. Jones will be a welcome return for a Packers team still without Randall Cobb.
