Jacoby Jones to see a larger offensive role

Baltimore Sun - [Full Article]

Ravens wide receiver and kick returner Jacoby Jones' role is expected to expand going forward after an encouraging performance during his return from a sprained right knee.

Jones displayed speed and elusiveness during the Ravens' 19-17 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. He caught an 11-yard touchdown pass and recorded a 31-yard reception on the other pass thrown to him.

"It was great," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. "Jacoby gave us a speed element out there, and he'll probably play more and more offensively as we go forward."

Fantasy Impact: 

Jones started ahead of Marlon Brown in Week 1 and has looked good when he has played this season, though he was a perennial disappointment when he had opportunities to start in Houston. If Jones's role is going to go, Brown's snaps and targets will be under pressure.
