Any chance he plays this week. Safe to drop for someone on the waiver wire?

I keep looking, but haven't really seen any info.  I just don't think you can trust him at this point after what happened last week.  I might scoop up Williams in case Jones is out, but if Jones does play I am going to avoid this backfield against a pretty decent Jets D.

Jets D is pretty meh. They've faced some pretty trash running games last 3 weeks. I'd fire him up if he was healthy but I don't see him playing.

Philbin is a beast!! From Rotoworld per ESPN:

 

"In the general sense, my philosophy is football players are paid to play football games," Philbin said. "That's my general philosophy and overall philosophy whether it's Aaron Rodgers or anybody else."

 

Meant this for the other Aaron on the team, but I guess this could possibly pertain to Jones also. Although I believe Jones is much more likely to sit than Rodgers.

From actual league winner to season killer.

 

Looking forward to 2019 with Jones. Hopefully whoever the next HC is fully commits to him. 

 

What's ADP you think? 3rd rounder next year? late 2nd? I'll certainly be eyeing him. Coaching staff does need to shake out, hopefully a coach that historically allows a lead back to flourish. Also, with no one emerging opposite d adams this year, Jones was quietly gathering targets and almost pushed for the no2 passing option in some games. You can easily get excited about him for next year.

It’ll be very interesting to see Jones’ ADP next year. Somehow ESPN’s Mike Clay has him going in the early fourth if the draft were today which baffles me. If he gets an innovative coach I could see Jones really breaking out as an elite RB1 next year, similar to Gurley with McVay. That’s a big if because if the new coach is someone like Phlibin I see him as a high-end RB2.
