|Poor James Jones. Despite spending almost his entire career as a backup, he has averaged 46 receptions for 608 yards and 4.8 touchdowns per season during the four years that he has played 16 games. Thatís pretty solid production for a backup. Unfortunately, when he hit the free agent market prior to the 2011 season, the market for his services never developed and he re-signed in Green Bay. Then the Packers drafted Randall Cobb in the 2nd round of last yearís draft and kept aging veteran Donald Driver. Both players return in 2012, meaning Jones will once again split the backup role with two other players. While it helps matters that the Packers love to play with five wide formations, Jones doesnít get fed enough (just 55 targets last season) to make him fantasy relevant. Unless he gets a new home during the preseason, Jones will shape up as a low end WR4 or as a WR5 in 2012.
| Davante Adams MCL sprain, unlikely to play -- Tue Jan 12 11:16 am --|
Packers down starting receiver
|The Green Bay Packers are likely to be without receiver Davante Adams for Saturday's NFC divisional playoff game against the Arizona Cardinals.
According to a source, further tests on Adams' right knee showed a possible MCL sprain.
FF Today's Take: The severity of the injury remains unclear but it sounds like Adams avoided a serious knee injury. Without Adams, Jared Abbrederis should see increased opportunities but will take a back seat to James Jones and Randall Cobb in the passing game.
