Jones fought hard for backup minutes last season with Kris Dunn behind starter Ricky Rubio. Over the 60 games he appeared in, Jones tallied 3.5 points, 2.6 assists and 1.1 rebounds across 12.9 minutes per game while shooting 41.4 percent from the field and 35.6 percent from deep. But, over the summer, Dunn was dealt to Chicago, now freeing up Jones to take over as the legitimate backup point guard behind newly acquired starter Jeff Teague. Assuming Teague sees around 30 minutes per night, Jones should find himself within the 15-20 minute range. While that’s not ideal for Fantasy value, it should at least provide him with enough workload to improve his game overall. That said, Jones can likely be avoided come draft night, but could make for a solid DFS play if Jeff Teague (who is generally healthy) is ever sidelined. Jones’ ability to pass and defend can bring value to the table in that context.

  2. Tyus Jones 2015–16 Preseason Outlook
    The 2015 NCAA Tournament's Most Outstanding Player, Jones enters the NBA as the 24th overall draft pick and will compete with Andre Miller for the backup point guard position in Minnesota. In his only season at Duke, Jones averaged 11.8 points, 5.6 assists, 3.5 rebounds, 1.5 steals, and 1.2 three-pointers per game. Jones shot 42 percent from the floor, 89 percent from the free-throw line, and 38 percent from three-point-range. His role is yet to be determined, but he will likely be relegated to the bench as long as Ricky Rubio is healthy. If thrust into action, it will be hard to expect much from the 19-year-old point guard right away, but he could be an intriguing source of assists given the talent around him and his reputation as a playmaker. For the Timberwolves, Jones is more of a long-term play, so it's probable that he takes a backseat to the veterans in his first NBA season. Fantasy owners may want to take the same approach, as Jones' value is probably higher in dynasty leagues than re-draft formats at this time.
