Jones missed the majority of last season a broken foot, which is the type of injury that tends to linger. Fantasy fans should expect the wideout to miss at least one game this fall.

Jones averaged a gaudy 8.2 receptions per game last season. He was finally breaking out before his injury and will pick up right were he left off in 2013. Look for Jones to have his first 90-catch season this fall.

Receiving Yards - 1,361

Now that he is completely healthy, Jones will walk back into a 1,300-yard season. He is one of the best vertical threats in the game and will be a dark horse candidate to lead the league in receiving yards.

Yards Per Catch - 14.8

Jones hauled in 18 touchdowns through his first two professional seasons. Now that he is healthy, the wideout will be a threat to once again haul in double-digit touchdowns.
