James Jones puts together a spectacular fantasy performance

Matthew Stockman

Jones notched a career-high 178 yards receiving in a big win over the Redskins. We discuss the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver James Jones caught 11 passes for a career-high 178 yards in a 38-20 victory over the Washington Redskins in Week 2. Jones was targeted 12 times in the game and the only blemish on his statistics was a first half fumble that cost him a touchdown.

Fantasy Impact: Packers' quarterback Aaron Rodgers had a career day in his own right, tying the Packers' franchise record with 480 passing yards in the game and Jones was the main beneficiary of A-Rod's showing. Jones has maintained a good rapport with Rodgers ever since Greg Jennings went down with an abdominal injury last year. Looking ahead to Week 3, the Cincinnati Bengals will be charged with containing the Packers' air attack, but fantasy owners need not worry about Rodgers or Jones going forward as they appear to be rolling two weeks into this young season.
