Xavier Jones: Limited to special teams

Jones played 177 special-teams snaps over 13 games during the 2020 regular season.

Analysis: It was a quiet rookie season for the undrafted free agent out of SMU. However, he could have an opportunity to climb the depth chart with veteran Malcolm Brown headed for free agency. Jones' fantasy value is probably limited as long as Cam Akers and Darrell Henderson (ankle) are healthy, and the Rams could also add a running back in the draft or free agency.

Xavier Jones: Earns roster spot

Jones was included on the Rams' 53-man roster, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: The undrafted free agent out of SMU impressed during training camp and took advantage of the extra opportunities he received with Darrell Henderson (hamstring) sidelined with an injured. Still, Henderson is trending toward being ready for Week 1, and the Rams also have reliable veteran Malcom Brown and second-round pick Cam Akers ahead of Jones on the depth chart. As a result, Jones probably has a steep uphill climb to fantasy relevance in the early stages of the season.
