Game Recaps

2013 Week 7 vs KC (2 / 2 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Jones is a fullback who was forced to carry the ball because of injuries to Arian Foster and Ben Tate. His first carry went for four yards over right tackle, while his second saw him stuffed at the goal line.

2012 Week 1 vs MIN (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)

Jones functioned primarily as a fullback and blocked when almost every time he is on the field.

2012 Week 3 vs IND (1 / 1 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 12 / 0 rec)

Jones spent most of the day paving avenues for Jones-Drew, but also had his opportunities to make an impact with the football. He caught a screen pass for six yards when he dragged a defender forward, but then dropped a catch in the flat after an accurate pass from Gabbert. Jones' only carry came on third and one when he pushed his own linemen forward for the first down. Jones attoned for his earlier drop in the flat also by catching a similar pass, but was met by three defenders at the line of scrimmage for no gain.

2012 Week 4 vs CIN (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 4 / 4 / 25 / 0 rec)

The fullback received a larger-than-usual workload, catching three passes in the first half alone. Jones' receptions were quintessential successful plays coming off of play action in the Jacksonville passing game. Once, Jones dragged a linebacker after the catch for 3-4 yards. While not a big fantasy factor, Jones' blocking and receiving skills can facilitate Jones-Drew's production and Gabbert's development as a passer.

2012 Week 14 vs NYJ (2 / 4 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 8 / 0 rec)

Jones was deployed in short yardage situations. During the first quarter, the Jaguars called Jones' number on a 4th-and-1 play and he converted. Jones also secured two dump-off passes for minimal gains. Jones was utilized as a simple check down option.

2012 Week 15 vs MIA (1 / 3 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

On just his fourth rushing attempt of the season, the fullback plunged ahead for minimal yardage against a stacked defensive front.

2012 Week 16 vs NE (1 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)

The starting fullback nearly scored in his limited chances on offense this week. After a short outlet reception early in the game, Jones received a carry at the goal line. He fought hard at the point of attack and was denied just short of the end zone. It was just his fifth carry of the season.

2011 Week 2 vs NYJ (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Jones was relegated to blocking duties for the most part, seeing only one pass early in the game which fell incomplete.

2011 Week 5 vs CIN (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 10 / 0 rec)

Once a promising runner, Jones is now limited to lead blocking and the occasional short-yardage carry or dump-off pass. His lone touch in this game was of the latter variety.

2010 Week 4 vs IND (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 4 / 0 rec)

Did a nice job of run blocking and also caught a couple of check down throws from Garrard when he had to.

2010 Week 12 vs NYG (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 2 / 0 rec)

Jones was thrown to once at the end of the first, but mostly remained as a blocker when in the game.

2010 Week 13 vs TEN (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec)

The bulky full back caught a short screen pass and ran over a few tacklers on his way for a 1st down.

2009 Week 1 vs IND (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)

Jones got a few targets in the passing game, but the only RB carry that didn't go to MJD went to Montell Owens.

2009 Week 4 vs TEN (3 / 20 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Jones got a carry as the tailback and showed a good burst and the requisite rugged style of the fullback he now is, but Rashad Jennings performance probably decreased the chances of Jones being the primary backup RB if something were to happen to Maurice Jones-Drew.

2009 Week 8 vs TEN (1 / 3 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Fullback Greg Jones had one carry in Week 8 and has no real fantasy value.

2009 Week 10 vs NYJ (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)

Jones had one catch for 4 yards and continues to be irrelevant from a fantasy perspective.

2008 Week 1 vs TEN (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 13 / 1 rec)

Jones caught all three of the short passes thrown to him, and turned one of them into a touchdown. He was on the field mostly as a blocker.

2008 Week 2 vs BUF (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

With so many injuries on the offensive line Jones had his hands full blocking.

Jones had only one carry in this game--a red zone attempt.

2007 Week 8 vs TB (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 18 / 0 rec)

Jones was used mostly as a blocking fullback, but made the most of his one target, taking a short pass with less than three minutes remaining on a third down play, making Derrick Brooks - a credentialed defender - miss with a nice move, and gaining 18 yards to keep the drive alive and take more time off the clock.

2007 Week 9 vs NO (1 / -1 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Jones was used mostly as a blocking fullback, and only had one carry, which resulted in a yard being lost.

2007 Week 10 vs TEN (3 / 1 / 1 rush, 2 / 1 / 2 / 1 rec)

Jones was very productive with his limited touches, catching a short pass for a touchdown and rushing up the middle for another.

In limited duty the big fullback picked up three yards on his only carry but failed to catch either pass thrown to him.

2007 Week 16 vs OAK (5 / 11 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 2 / 1 rec)

Jones scored early in the game with his only reception, then returned very late in the game to spell Jones-Drew and Taylor.

2007 Week 17 vs HOU (14 / 71 / 0 rush, 5 / 3 / 27 / 0 rec)

Jones took advantage of his increased role in the offense by running hard each time he had the ball, and breaking tackles to gain extra yards. He also displayed good hands and ability to gain additional yards after securing the ball.

2007 Week 18 vs PIT (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Jones was the fullback on the night, and ended up dropping one of the passes thrown his way which would have been for a big gain on second and long.

2005 Week 2 vs IND (3 / 29 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

2005 Week 6 vs PIT (18 / 77 / 1 rush, 1 / 1 / 10 / 0 rec)

Jones started in place of Fred Taylor who was out with a sprained ankle. He had respectable numbers, but certainly did not live up to Taylor's consistency. He got into a groove mid first quarter as he had runs of 12, 25 and 5 and 8 yards that should have led to some kind of points, be it three or six, but he was stopped for no gain on third and two and again on fourth down. Outside of those early runs, Jones ran for 27 yards on his remaining 14 carries, including a seven yard touchdown run in the second quarter. Nevertheless, on paper, it was a decent day overall.

2005 Week 8 vs STL (4 / 2 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Jones was used primarily as a fullback in this game, and was not productive with the few carries he had.

2005 Week 9 vs HOU (7 / 27 / 1 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Jones did the bulk of the running after Taylor went out of the game, but was not asked to carry the ball a lot. His touchdown run showcased his impressive package of power, as he broke several tackles at the line of scrimmage, then burst away from the secondary for a 12 yard score. He was not involved in the passing game as a receiver.

2005 Week 10 vs BAL (25 / 106 / 1 rush, 2 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)

Jones was a workhorse runner for the Jaguars, turning in his first 100 game rushing performance of his career. He ran in a one yard touchdown in the third quarter. He busted off big runs of 14, 17, and 20 yards.

2005 Week 11 vs TEN (16 / 33 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 7 / 0 rec)

Jones ran hard and with power, but went up against a determined Titans' defense that did not allow him any big gains. Jones had the majority of the rushing attempts, as Fred Taylor was ineffective in this game.

2005 Week 12 vs ARI (23 / 78 / 1 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Jones ran hard and with power, but other than his 25 yard touchdown run, was held to minimal gains on his other rushing attempts. He appeared to be close to breaking several tackles for bigger gains, but was unable to do so.

2005 Week 13 vs CLE (27 / 103 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)

Jones began to get it going in the second half, and helped to sustain the touchdown drives in going over one hundred yards in replacement of the injured Fred Taylor. Jones was targeted just once out of the backfield by Garrard, and was routinely spelled in passing situations in favor of Alvin Pearman.

2005 Week 14 vs IND (7 / 43 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)

Jones ran effectively in the limited opportunities he had. He did not allow one tackler to bring him down, and showed an ability to use some moves to get outside and gain extra yardage.

2005 Week 15 vs SF (12 / 44 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 10 / 0 rec)

Jones split carries with Taylor in this game, and ran with his usual determination and power. As a result of splitting carries, his numbers were not great, but he did average close to 4.0 yards per carry. He left the game late in the fourth quarter due to an injury.
