RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Jones is questionable to play Saturday against Manchester United because of a hip injury, the Sunderland Echo reports.

The Black Cats' defense is hardly a stout and deep unit, so the absence of Jones will surely be a hit. If he's unable to play, DeAndre Yedlin, who is on loan from Spurs, could start in his place.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Jones hit the woodwork on two shots (one on target), two crosses and a yellow card in the 1-0 defeat to Man City on Tuesday.

Jones could've had a whole lot more out of this game but the post and the referee denied him a good fantasy outing. He's having a decent season for as far as a Black Cat defender can have a good season this year. He scored once and assisted on another occasion already this campaign but porous Sunderland defense (47 goals allowed) and 15 losses are dragging his fantasy value down. Another big issue is his discipline - he's now with eight cautions.

Jones is eligible to face Arsenal on Saturday after a one-match yellow card accumulation ban.

DeAndre Yedlin got the start last weekend against Stoke, but Jones could very well slot back into the first XI upon his return. That being said, it's a very tough matchup, even with the Gunners a bit depleted by injuries.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Jones is suspended for one game for yellow card accumulation and will miss the clash with Stoke on Saturday.

A new tactics rejuvenated the Black Cats and Jones was a key cog in that success. Now new man Sam Allerdyce would have to find a replacement for him and DeAndre Yedlin seems like one good option to fit in the right flank.

Jones assisted on the go ahead goal in Monday's 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace.

Jones sent a through ball to Jermain Defoe to put in the back of the net in the 80th minute to give Sunderland the win. This was his first assist of the season for the defending midfielder, however he looks to attack and push forward and may create more chances for goals in future matches.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Jones scored in the 65th minute of Sunderland's 3-0 win over Newcastle on Sunday.

Jones simply redirected an on-goal attempt from teammate Yann M'Vila to score for the first time in a Sunderland shirt Sunday. Similarly, Jones also secured his first clean sheet of the season on Sunday, making Sunderland's triumph over Newcastle even sweeter for the Englishman.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Jones has agreed to a four-year contract with Sunderland after leaving West Brom on a free transfer, the club's official web site reports.

Jones spent three years at West Brom after joining from Preston North End in 2011. He is a versatile defender, although he isn't particularly valuable in most fantasy leagues.
