Felix Jones Fails Conditioning Test

Dallas Cowboy running back, Felix Jones, failed the teams mandatory conditioning test on Monday.  Running Backs in the Cowboys system need to be able to run 50 yards in 7 seconds (nearly 2.5 seconds slower than Jones ran his 40 at the combine).

Jones along with Safety Brodney Pool and receiver Andre Holmes failed their conditioning tests and are being held out of training camp.  Jones, who has had fantasy value in the past, is the clear cut backup in Dallas.  DeMarco Murray has set himself miles ahead of Jones in not only ability but desire as well.  Jones, who is in the last year of his contract, had been expected to come in and be a third down / change of pace back for the Cowboys this season.

Felix Jones has little to no fantasy relevance going forward.  He may be worth a late round pick up as a handcuff to Murray but holds no value on his own.
