Felix Jones scored the second receiving touchdown of his career on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.
With DeMarco Murray out, Felix Jones remained the No. 1 running back for the Cowboys in Week 10. He rushed for 71 yards on 16 carries while catching three passes for 22 yards and a touchdown against the Eagles.
Finding the end zone hasn’t been a signature of Jones’ career, but he finally managed a decent day after his last three games with rather lackluster.
Fantasy Impact: Finally Jones’ owners found some solace in starting him with Murray out. He even managed to make it through Week 10 without finding a way to obtain a new injury. It was a good week for Jones.
Murray is supposedly slated to return in Week 11, and if he does, Jones’ value goes out completely out the window. Be sure to hold onto him, though, if you’re a Murray owner.
