Wide receiver Julio Jones is coming back after aggravating his hamstring injury that has bothered him the past two months and kept him out of last weeks game against the Tennessee Titans. Jones did practice all week and is expected to start.
Jones is not projected in numberFire's top 25 rankings at wide receiver and they consider Jones a high risk play this week. NumberFire projects Jones to earn 6.25 fantasy points with a point range from 1.66 - 10.84 points today, and they predict Jones will have four catches for 46 yards.
However, the Vikings are 28th in the league in passing yards allowed and that could lead to Jones having a good game for fantasy football owners if they are needing a third wide receiver with upside.
