7/1/2014 10:48:00 AM
Description: Former Cowboys and Steelers running back Felix Jones is not on any rosters at the moment, but still wants to play football, he told Tulsa World.
Insight: Jones isn't likely to catch on until some injuries pile up and even then we still wouldn't expect him to be fantasy worthy.
 
10/20/2013 3:35:00 PM
Description: Steelers running back Felix Jones is inactive for Sunday's game with Baltimore
Insight: Jones is primarily the backup since Le'Veon Bell became the starter and he's also doing some kick return work.
 
9/3/2013 10:28:00 AM
Description: Contrary to some earlier reports, Steelers running back Isaac Redman will be the starter while Le'Veon Bell (foot) is out, not the newly-acquired Felix Jones, according to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Insight: Jones logged 402 yards on 111 attempts last season with Dallas. With Bell likely to return by Week 3, Jones' opportunity to play in Pittsburgh will be limited and fantasy owners should not be jumping on his bandwagon.
 
8/23/2013 8:36:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia traded halfback Felix Jones to Pittsburgh on Friday. SOURCE: Adam Caplan, ESPN
Insight: The Eagles acquired linebacker Adrian Robinson to complete the swap. Jones, who wouldn't have factored in the offense had he stayed in Philly, should get a decent amount of carries while rookie Le'Veon Bell is recovering from a torn ligament in his right foot. Jones logged 402 yards on 111 attempts last season with Dallas.
 
5/14/2013 1:43:00 PM
Description: Running back Felix Jones signed a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Insight: Barring an injury to starter LeSean McCoy, Jones and Bryce Brown figure to have a limited upside for the upcoming season. The only good news for Jones fans is that new coach, Chip Kelly, while playing at an up tempo, prefers to run the ball first and pass second.
 
11/28/2012 1:43:00 PM
Description: Cowboys running back Felix Jones (knees) is not at Wednesday's practice.
Insight: Jones is making a habit of not practicing, but playing in games. The real question is whether DeMarco Murray returns to the field. If Murray plays, Jones' fantasy value takes a huge hit. If Murray sits again Jones has solid value - he's posted double-digits in his last four starts.
 
11/22/2012 3:37:00 PM
Description: Cowboys halfback Felix Jones (knees) is active Thursday against the Redskins. DeMarco Murray (foot) is out again.
Insight: Jones is likely to lead a committee that also includes Lance Dunbar and Phillip Tanner. Jones has found the end zone in two straight weeks and he'll need to do so again in order to have value in Week 11. We'd stay away from Dallas' RB situation until Murray returns.
 
11/20/2012 6:28:00 PM
Description: Cowboys halfback Felix Jones missed practice on Tuesday because of a sore knee.
Insight: He was originally slated to be the team's starter Thursday against Washington but now his availability is somewhat in question. Lance Dunbar and Phillip Tanner both saw first team reps in practice on Tuesday. They'll probably split carries Thursday if Jones can't play.
 
11/20/2012 11:27:00 AM
Description: Dallas running back Felix Jones (knee) banged up his knee against Cleveland, but was back on the practice field Monday. He's listed as probable for Thursday's game in Dallas.
Insight: With a short work week due to the Thanksgiving Day game against Washington, it's good to see he's practicing right away, even on a limited basis. He'll likely start as the Cowboys give DeMarco Murray another week of rest.
 
11/6/2012 11:57:00 AM
Description: Dallas running back Felix Jones is likely to be the starter in Week 10 against Philadelphia as the latest rumors concerning DeMarco Murray playing Sunday are not encouraging.
Insight: Jones managed to reach double-digit fantasy points thanks to a pair of garbage-time receptions worth 41 yards. Jones led the Cowboys backfield with 14 touches followed by Lance Dunbar with eight and Phillip Tanner one.
 
11/4/2012 11:15:00 AM
Description: Dallas running back Felix Jones (bruised knee, shoulder) is expected to play Sunday night against Atlanta.
Insight: Jones has yet to prove that he can carry the load by himself and will split backfield time with Phillip Tanner.
 
10/28/2012 3:10:00 PM
Description: Dallas running back Felix Jones (bruised knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Giants.
Insight: Jones may split time with Phillip Tanner after getting banged up in Week 7 against the Panthers. He's a risky play this week against the Giants.
 
10/25/2012 10:04:00 AM
Description: Dallas running back Felix Jones (bruised knee) is expected to start Sunday; his absence in Wednesday's practice was for precautionary reasons, according to ESPN Dallas.
Insight: Jones may split time with Phillip Tanner after getting banged up in Week 7 against the Panthers. He's a risky play this week against the Giants.
 
10/24/2012 3:35:00 PM
Description: Dallas running back Felix Jones (bruised knee) missed Wednesday's practice.
Insight: Jones is still expected to play against the Giants this Sunday, though he'll likely share the workload with Phillip Tanner. Starter DeMarco Murray is not expected to play.
 
10/23/2012 4:00:00 PM
Description: Dallas running back Felix Jones was hindered by a bruised knee Sunday against Carolina, but is expecting to start, according to beat writer Clarence Hill.
Insight: Jones only rushed for 44 yards and shared the workload with Phillip Tanner because of the knee problem and the RBBC will likely continue until DeMarco Murray returns.
 
10/22/2012 10:32:00 AM
Description: Dallas running back Felix Jones was hindered by a bruised knee Sunday against Carolina.
Insight: That could be why Jones only rushed for 44 yards while ceding nearly half of his workload to third-stringer Phillip Tanner. We're not hopeful about Jones' fantasy prospects heading into next week's matchup with the Giants.
 
10/15/2012 3:26:00 PM
Description: Dallas backup running back Felix Jones could become extremely valuable if DeMarco Murray's foot injury keeps him out for any length of time. Murray went for a Monday morning MRI, but reports out of Dallas think he has ligament damage.
Insight: Jones could be the starter for the next couple of weeks, or if the Murray injury turns out to be the more serious Lisfranc type, for the remainder of the season.
 
10/14/2012 4:22:00 PM
Description: Dallas backup running back Felix Jones was sidelined with leg cramps. He did return, but didn't get much of a chance to continue running because Dallas was playing catch up.
Insight: With DeMarco Murray injured, Jones had put up solid numbers (18 rushes for 92 yards and a TD), but could stay on the field. Phillip Tanner rushed nine times for 31 yards.
 
9/10/2012 1:38:00 PM
Description: Dallas backup running back Felix Jones was back practicing on Monday after dealing with bruised ribs coming out of the Wednesday night's game against the Giants.
Insight: Jones was injured in the second quarter, but failed to get an opportunity either rushing or receiving before then. He returned three kickoffs for a 20.3 average
 
11/17/2011 3:40:00 PM
Description: Felix Jones was working on kickoff returns in Thursday's practice. Source: ESPN Dallas
Insight: This tells us that Jones is looking at a chance of pace role and that he's not looking at any type of substantial workload on Sunday.
