Insight: Jones led the Saints' backfield in touches and yards against his former team. (RapidDraft.com)
 
11/3/2010 12:02:00 PM
Description: Jeff Duncan of the The New Orleans Times Picayune notes that Jones' role has been expanding as he gets comfortable with the Saints' offense.
Insight: Jones' expanded role is likely on borrowed time, with Pierre Thomas (ankle) and Reggie Bush (leg) headed toward returning over the next couple weeks. (RapidDraft.com)
 
10/12/2010 11:03:00 PM
Description: ESPN's Adam Schefter reports, via Twitter, that the Saints have signed Jones.
Insight: Jones is unlikely to be much more than backfield depth for the Saints. This may spell the end in New Orleans for Ladell Betts if Pierre Thomas (ankle) is healthy enough to play this week. (RapidDraft.com)

Description: The Saints have signed former Seahawks RB Julius Jones. SOURCE: TWITTER
Insight: Ladell Betts is on the hot seat after a fumble was returned for an Arizona touchdown. Jones showed absolutely no upside in Seattle, so expect him to be the No. 3 behind Chris Ivory.
 
10/5/2010 3:05:00 PM
Description: Pro Football Talk.com reports the Seahawks have released Lynch.
Insight: Jones became the odd-man out with Tuesday's acquisition of Marshawn Lynch. He may be able to find a new home, but don't expect him to suddenly become fantasy relevant. (RapidDraft.com)
 
9/6/2010 11:05:00 PM
Description: Pro Football Talk.com reports the Seahawks have decided to retain Jones after he agreed to take a pay cut.
Insight: Jones still looks likely to be the Seahawks' No. 3 tailback to start the season. (RapidDraft.com)
 
9/5/2010 10:03:00 PM
Description: ESPN's Adam Schefter reports, via Twitter, that the Seahawks have released Jones.
Insight: Jones' departure opens the door for Justin Forsett and Leon Washington to split the workload in the Seattle backfield. (RapidDraft.com)
 
9/5/2010 4:46:00 PM
Description: It turns out the reported release of Seahawks RB Julius Jones was inaccurate. He currently falls 3rd on the depth chart behind Forsett and Washington. SOURCE: TWITTER
Insight:
 
8/30/2010 4:02:00 PM
Description: Brian McIntyre of Scout.com considers Jones a "lock" to make the Seahawks' final roster.
Insight: Jones looks likely to fall in behing Justin Forsett and Leon Washington in Seattle's RB pecking order this season. (Rapid Draft.com)
 
6/1/2010 9:29:00 AM
Description: Jones is back atop the Seahawks' RB depth chart with last Friday's release of LenDale White.
Insight: Jone had looked like the odd-man out in the Seattle backfield earlier in the offseason. But with White's release and Leon Washington's (leg( health looking uncertain, Jones could at least share time with Justin Forsett. (SportsBuff.com)
 
4/26/2010 10:25:00 AM
Description: National Football Post reports Jones was on the trading block during the draft.
Insight: The writing appears to be on the wall for Jones with Seattle's acquisition of LenDale White and Leon Washington over the weekend. If they can't find a trade partner, the Seahawks may just release him. (SportsBuff.com)
 
3/3/2010 11:19:00 AM
Description: The Seattle Times reports Seahawks' head coach Pete Carroll said he like one more RB "that could really add something to us."
Insight: This situation reeks of a RBBC involving Jones, Justin Forsett and another back, which would limit the fantasy value of all involved. That is unless one guy is able to emerge as the primary ballcarrier or goal line back. (SportsBuff.com)
 
2/10/2010 12:14:00 AM
Description: The Seattle Times reports Seahawks' offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates is "excited" about Jones and Justin Forsett in the team's backfield.
Insight: Bates reportedly thinks both backs fit the team's zone blocking scheme well. Still, the Seahawks may look to the draft for an upgrade from Jones. (SportsBuff.com)
 
1/1/2010 8:11:00 PM
Description: Jones (ribs) is listed as probable for this week's game.
Insight: He put in a full practice on Friday, so he should be good to go. However, he's a poor bet to do well against Tennessee's rush defense. (SportsBuff.com)
 
12/29/2009 11:40:00 AM
Description: According to the Seattle Times, Jones (ribs/ankle) is considered questionable for Week 17 against Tennessee.
Insight: Hopefully Jones' status doesn't impact your Week 17 plans by itself, but Justin Forsett could be in line for a big workload against the Titans. (SportsBuff.com)
 
12/28/2009 12:43:00 PM
Description: According to the Tacoma News Tribune, Jones (ribs) aggravated his rib injury and also injured his ankle in Sunday's loss to Green Bay.
Insight: Justin Forsett could be in line for a significant workload next week against Tennessee if Jones is unable to go. (SportsBuff.com)
 
12/26/2009 11:53:00 AM
Description: Jones (ribs)is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Green Bay.
Insight: He'll likely play and his ribs shouldn't hamper him too badly. The Packers' strong run defense, however, might. (SportsBuff.com)
 
12/23/2009 8:31:00 PM
Description: According to Danny Neil of the Seattle Times, via Twitter, Jones (ribs) was held out of Wednesday's practice
Insight: This seems to be an aggravation of the injury that cost Jones a couple games earlier in the season, so his status for Sunday against Green Bay is up in the air. Justin Forsett would start in his place if he is unable to go. (SportsBuff.com)
 
12/21/2009 12:54:00 PM
Description: According to the Tacoma News Tribune, Jones (ribs) suffered a rib inury during Sunday's game against Tampa Bay but was able to play through it.
Insight: Hopefully you're not relying on Jones at this point, but this may open the door for Justin Forsett to take back a significant role in the Seahawks' offense. (SportsBuff.com)
 
12/7/2009 1:33:00 PM
Description: Jones (rib/lung) had 20 carries for 67 yards in Seattle's win over the 49ers on Sunday.
Insight: Jones returned to action, and had 20 carries to Justin Forsett's eight total touches. But Jones is not an explosive runner and is not a good fantasy option. (SportsBuff.com)
