The Cowboys picked CB Byron Jones in the 1st round of the NFL Draft. Jones became an athletic marvel with his eye-opening Scouting Combine but also performed well as a cover man in 2014. Pro Football Focus credited him with a 26.0 QB rating on balls thrown his way. Jones could fight for a starting job right away in Dallas. We'll see how that goes before projecting any IDP value.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Dolphins have agreed to a "massive deal" with free-agent CB Byron Jones. The former Cowboy is regarded as 1 of the league's top cover men, but that hasn't translated to much fantasy production the past couple of years. We'll see if that changes in a new defense.
Cowboys CB Byron Jones won't play in today's opener against the Giants, according to ESPN's Ed Werder. Jones is still working his way back from offseason hip surgery. Jones isn't a special IDP option even when healthy, so you can go ahead and dump him for another DB in most cases.
