Taiwan Jones Taking First-Team Reps in Practice


November 08 09:36 AM


Raiders running back Taiwan Jones picked up the first-team reps at running back Wednesday with Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson sidelined with ankle sprains. Quarterback Carson Palmer had high praise for Jones Wednesday: "I feel like I've been waiting forever (for Jones to play a bigger role). I can't wait. He does amazing things in practice and he's by far the fastest person on the field. And not that you want to see guys get banged up, but I'm excited about the opportunity he's getting ... I mean, he's so electrifying. He puts his foot in the ground and goes. He wiggles out of hits, he wiggles out of tackles. Can't wait to throw him the ball, get him in the open field."

Fantasy Spin:
   Jones has been slowed by injuries and ball security issues this season but he's all the Raiders have left at running back. He will likely split time with fullback Marcel Reece but Reece has just one carry this season and is more of a receiving threat than a runner. Jones could be a decent flex play for the desperate owner this week with Reece providing a solid PPR line.
