Redskins HC Jay Gruden says Matt Jones is capable of being a No. 1 back. Jones will be ready for OTAs, had minor groin related surgery.

Fantasy Impact: 

Jones started the season with a bang, posting 146 yards and two touchdowns against the Rams in Week 2, but ultimately generated just 3.40 yards per carry on 144 totes. He made a number of big plays in the passing game (16.0 yards per catch), finishing with 794 yards and four touchdowns. With Alfred Morris likely leaving via free agency, Jones has an opportunity to seize the RB1 job.
