News: Jones appears past the foot and ankle injuries that sidelined him last season.
Impact: The 25-year-old wideout required surgery to remove bone chips, but the Cincinnati Enquirer relays that Jones appeared 100-percent healthy during the Bengals' offseason program and is on track to be full-go once training camp opens up later this month. For his part, Jones notes with regard to the injuries that kept him out of action last season, "we looked at it, got it fixed, and it's not there anymore...it was an unfortunate situation, but it's behind me." Assuming no injury setbacks, Jones is a prime bounce-back candidate in 2015, given that when healthy in 2013 he recorded 51 catches for 712 yards and 10 TDs while emerging as the team's No. 2 wideout behind A.J. Green. Jones' prime competition for wideout targets that don't go Green's way will be Mohamed Sanu, but it's not difficult to envision a scenario in which Jones reestablishes his key role in the team's offense and thus reclaims fantasy utility in 2015.

News: Jones (ankle/foot) is practicing Tuesday, ESPN's Coley Harvey reports.
Impact: Jones was impressive in 2013, catching 51-of-80 targets (63.8%) for 712 yards (8.9 YPT) and 10 touchdowns. He then missed all of 2014 with a broken foot/ankle, allowing Mohamed Sanu to take over as the No. 2 wide receiver. While Sanu had a few moments, particularly on trick plays, he largely disappeared in the second half of the season, often struggling to separate from defensive backs. Sanu still figures to have a role in the offense, but his performance last season leaves Jones as the clear favorite to start across from A.J. Green. Of course, that doesn't mean Jones will see a steady supply of targets, as the Bengals largely want to build their offense around Green and the running game. Also, TE Tyler Eifert is a breakout candidate, and RB Giovani Bernard is a big part of the passing game.
