According to Field Yates of ESPN, RB Tony Jones Jr. is signing with the New Orleans Saints’ active roster after a big performance on Monday Night Football.
Fantasy Impact: Jones had a pair of touchdowns to help surge the Saints past the Panthers in Week 2. He saw an increased workload after RB Jamaal Williams suffered an injury. Rookie RB Kendre Miller could be in line to make his NFL debut in Week 3, but Jones has shown in the past he can be a serviceable lead back in a pinch if Miller can’t play. Even if Miller plays, Jones could eat into his workload, assuming Williams misses Week 3.
