Insight: Jones has showed flashes of promise but has struggled with injuries. He has never started more than 10 games in a season or caught more than 41 passes.

Description: Jones caught eight passes for 82 yards in the Titans' win on Sunday. It was the third straight week in which he caught at least four balls.
Insight: Those are the only three times this season, though, and Kerry Collins will not often attempt 41 throws in a game. Jones is an OK PPR option in a deep league, but he's not worth much attention in most formats. (
