Recent Player News

    Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones' agent has asked the team to release Jones. Jones is close with new Redskins senior vice president of player personnel Doug Williams, who told him to put his head down and compete. Jones said he would work hard to earn back his starting spot.

    Huddle Up: Jones is buried on the depth chart and has no fantasy value as long as he's on the Redskins' roster. That could change with a new uniform.

  • Posted: 6/13/2017 7:55am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones was spotted at the team's facility Tuesday, June 13.

    Huddle Up: Jones is so buried on the depth chart that he only has RB5 value in the event that he is traded or released.

  • Posted: 6/1/2017 8:14am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones was told he was the team's No. 5 running back, and he is not participating in organized team activities.

    Huddle Up: Jones seems destined to land elsewhere, and a fresh start could bode well for the former starter. He still has upside, but he hasn't come close to harnessing it. Watch his status as camp nears.

  • Posted: 5/24/2017 6:18am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones won't attend organized team activities, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Jones doesn't appear to be in the team's plans, but he could be a late-round value if he lands on another team.

  • Posted: 4/28/2017 5:59am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones is being shopped by the team, according to sources. The Redskins are likely to add another running back in the NFL draft.

    Huddle Up: Jones has shown flashes, and he's just 24, but he really hasn't lived up to the billing in fantasy. If he lands in at least a 50-50 split, he'd be a low-end RB3 to take a chance on.

  • Posted: 3/4/2017 6:20pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones will be given another chance to compete for playing time, according to head coach Jay Gruden. 'I fully anticipate he'll come in and compete,' Gruden said. 'No one is giving up on Matt Jones.'

    Huddle Up: Jones was given the keys to the backfield to start last season, but he quickly played himself on to the bench. Jones may resurface as part of a committee in 2017, but he is nothing more than a late-round lottery ticket for fantasy owners at this point.

  • Posted: 11/18/2016 7:22pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones said he is staying 'humble' and working hard after losing his starting job, and head coach Jay Gruden said Jones needs to be ready to take advantage of his next opportunity when it comes.

    Huddle Up: Washington will lean on Rob Kelley as their lead back for the time being, and Jones is nothing more than a handcuff at this point.

  • Posted: 11/15/2016 7:12am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones may continue to be a healthy scratch as the team prefers a back that can perform on special teams, which Jones has not done. 'We're not giving up on Matt,' head coach Jay Gruden said. 'But when you can only dress three running backs, the third one we would like to have some impact on special teams. That's not always going to be the case. Sometimes we may not need our third running back to be on special teams, we can get Matt up.'

    Huddle Up: Jones looks to be little more than a handcuff to Rob Kelley at this point. If you own Jones and missed out on Kelley, he can be dropped if you need the space.

  • Posted: 11/13/2016 8:46am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones is a healthy scratch for Week 10's game against the Minnesota Vikings.

    Huddle Up: Rob Kelley will see the bulk of the carries versus Minnesota and is expected to be the team's main running back going forward. He should be viewed as a viable RB2 option in the majority of fantasy formats. Chris Thompson will continue to serve as Washington's third-down and backup running back and is only worthy of consideration as an RB3 or flex option in deep seasonal leagues.

  • Posted: 11/7/2016 12:06pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley is expected to receive the bulk of carries in Week 10, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Gruden added that RB Matt Jones (knee) will need to earn his way back into the starting role.

    Huddle Up: Jones' knee injury and fumbleitis have paved the way for Kelley to take over the lead running back role. Washington has a three-headed backfield committee comprised of Kelley, Jones and Chris Thompson, but Kelley seems to be the most valuable in standard leagues for now, while Thompson is still a PPR option. As for Jones, don't drop him just yet. Play the wait-and-see game with him on the bench.

  • Posted: 11/7/2016 9:59am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones (knee) took part in practice Monday, Nov. 7.

    Huddle Up: Jones did not take part in practice all week leading up to the Redskins' Week 8 tie with the Cincinnati Bengals, which led into the team's Week 9 bye. Regardless of whether he was limited or not, it is a good sign the second-year back has progressed physically. However, his status as Washington's lead back is in some doubt as Rob Kelley and Chris Thompson have held their own when given the chance. As such, Jones belongs on fantasy benches until the situation becomes clearer.

  • Posted: 10/28/2016 7:45am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones (knee) has been ruled out for Week 8, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

    Huddle Up: There is no surprise here as Jones was out of practice all week. Rob Kelley and Chris Thompson will handle backfield duties with Kelley in line to see the lion's share. Kelley is a decent flex play against the Cincinnati Bengals. Thompson is likely to see work on third downs, which makes him a low-end flex option in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 10/28/2016 6:24am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones (knee) is out of practice Friday, Oct. 28.

    Huddle Up: Jones could still wind up suiting up, but it doesn't appear likely. Rob Kelley looks to be a decent flex play against the Cincinnati Bengals this week.

  • Posted: 10/27/2016 10:35am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones (knee) is not participating in practice Thursday, Oct. 27.

    Huddle Up: Jones likely will need to practice Friday, Oct. 28, if he wants a chance to play in Week 8. Owners need to check on him over the next few days to have a better idea of his status. Rob Kelley would start if Jones is ruled out and can be a flex option.

  • Posted: 10/26/2016 4:14pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 26.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to follow this situation during the week to see if he will be able to play in Week 8. He would be a low-end No. 2 or a flex option if he is active for the game. Chris Thompson and Rob Kelley would share playing time at running back if Jones is ruled out and could both be flex options.

  • Posted: 10/24/2016 1:22pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones could have his workload decreased following a lost fumble in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Jones has had a history with fumbling the football. He fumbled five times in his rookie season last year and has fumbled three times so far this year. If Jones' workload does take a hit, it would mostly benefit Chris Thompson and Robert Kelley. Thompson's involvement would mostly still be in the passing game, while Kelley could very well take a few carries away from Jones. Keep an eye on how Jay Gruden uses his running backs next week.

  • Posted: 10/23/2016 5:49pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones ran 10 times for just 27 yards in the Week 7 game against the Detroit Lions. He was not targeted in the pass game. He also lost a fumble.

    Huddle Up: Jones was outperformed by Chris Thompson, who totaled 113 yards from scrimmage, and that's not good going forward for the fantasy outlook of Jones. The Redskins will face the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 8 in London.

  • Posted: 10/16/2016 1:53pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones rushed 16 times for 135 yards and a touchdown Sunday, Oct. 16, in a 27-20 win over the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Huddle Up: Jones' outburst is welcome as the Redskins have had issues finding a quality running back. This is just his second season, and Jones is looking like he'll fit in nicely. Sometimes the running game struggles, so consider Jones an RB2 or RB3 for the time being.

  • Posted: 10/9/2016 2:41pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones rushed for 31 yards on 14 carries against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 5. He also caught two passes for 25 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Jones was coming off a very successful Week 4 performance but had trouble getting things going against the Ravens. He should continue to receive most of the work at running back and could be a low-end No. 2 running back or a flex option for owners.

  • Posted: 10/8/2016 7:35pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones said he has run with more of an 'edge' since taking a late hit against the New York Giants in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Jones ran for 117 yards in Week 4 against Cleveland, but a Week 5 matchup with Baltimore should prove to be more of a challenge. Consider him a potential flex option.

  • Posted: 10/2/2016 3:08pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones ran for 117 yards and scored a touchdown Sunday, Oct. 2, in a 31-20 win over the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: Considering one of the biggest issues was supposed to be the Redskins' rushing attack, every good game Jones has helps fantasy players breathe a sigh of relief. Jones is a decent pickup in most leagues as long as he stays putting up decent numbers.

  • Posted: 9/26/2016 4:10am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones posted 17 carries for 65 yards but did not score Sunday, Sept. 25, in a 29-27 win over the New York Giants.

    Huddle Up: Jones is the top runner on an otherwise mediocre Redskins rushing attack. This was a better week for that attack, but it misses Alfred Morris. Jones deserves some fantasy consideration, even if it's just as an RB3 or a substitute on a bye week.
