Reshad Jones: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Jones is the second Dolphins' player suspended so far this offseason, joining Dion Jordan. Jones, who was in line to serve as the Dolphins' starting strong safety, is thus eligible to participate in preseason practices and games, but once the season starts, it won't be until after the team's September 28 contest that he is reinstated. While Jones is unavailable early on, look for Jimmy Wilson to fill in.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Jones is coming off his second straight successful season, following up a 94-tackle, four-interception 2012 effort with 107 tackles (84 solo), 1.5 sacks and an interception returned for a touchdown in 2013. It would seem as if he's arrived as one of the league's better IDP options at safety, and he heads into 2014 as the best player at the position in Miami. The Dolphins' linebackers were not very effective in 2013, so Jones might continue doing a fair amount of cleanup work this year, though his tackle volume might take a step back since Miami might not play more than 1,100 defensive snaps for the second year in a row. In any case, he'll sit out the first four games of the upcoming season for violating the NFL policy on performance enhancing substances.
Jones finished fourth on the team in tackles in 2012, and will start at SS in the upcoming season for the Dolphins.
Expected to be the Dolphins starter at free safety. Jones has shown a knack for finding the football during practice and could be a sneaky pick in deep IDP leagues.
Slated once again to start the season as a backup to Chris Clemons, Jones will only see playing time in the event of injury or possibly in some nickel situations.
Jones, sixth-round pick this season, should be the backup to Chris Clemons at Safety to enter the season.
