James Jones bounces back in Week 2, Packers having a fantasy field day vs. Skins

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

James Jones is coming back nicely from his goose egg while the Packers went nuts vs. Washington. We break down the fantasy implications.

Packers receiver James Jones had a big first half with eight receptions for  a career-high 153 yards. The Packers are thumping the Redskins 24-0, but Jones fumbled the ball with nine seconds left in the first half.

UPDATE: Jones finished with 178 yards and 11 catches in Green Bay's win.

Jones led the NFL in scores last year, but he put up goose egg in Week 1 against the stout 49ers D. Jones is not alone with Randall Cobb going off to the tune of seven catches for 96 yards and a TD while Jermichael Finley and Jordy Nelson each have TD catches all in the first half.

The Redskins look like they're playing with 10 guys because their secondary has been torched all game. Of course, all this production from the receivers has helped Aaron Rodgers post big-time numbers. The former MVP has 335 yards and three TDs, good for a 144 passer rating.

Fantasy impact: It's been both ends of the spectrum for GB. Last week was a very tough matchup and this week is arguably the easiest. James Starks is also running the ball well for them and he's shaping up to be a hot pickup for Week 3 against the Bengals. There are a lot of mouths to feed in Green Bay, so there are going to be some ups and downs for their big-play receivers in Nelson and Jones. Cobb's value should be solid for most weeks since he's the best bet to lead the team in targets.
