Week 3 at New York Giants
It was a much better week for Matt Jones owners in Week 2. Jones ran 13 times for 61 yards and scored his first TD of the season. He averaged 4.69 yards per rush. The only problem was the Skins trailed the Cowboys, which limited Jones' production.
This week, Washington travels to the Giants. Last week the Giants D kept the Saints in check, so while the numbers say the G-men are 21st in allowing fantasy points to RBs, the fact is they've kept Ezekiel Elliott and Mark Ingram in check so far this season. As a result, Jones comes in ranked just 32nd on our RB list. Also keep in mind that in 2015, Jones carried a total of 19 times for 57 yards and no TDs in two games against the Giants. It's shaping up to be a tough go, but Jones is at least a RB3 or flex option this week coming off a pretty good performance in Week 2.
