James Jones posts 83 receiving yards in London game
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Raiders wide receiver James Jones got off to a fast start and led the team in receiving Sunday against the Dolphins in Week 4.

Jones caught an acrobatic 30-yard pass on the first play of the game. Five of his six receptions came from rookie Derek Carr, who went down with injuries to the knee and ankle. In the fourth quarter, Jones caught a 29-yard pass from backup Matt McGloin for his second-longest gain of the day. He caught all six of his targets for 83 yards in a 38-14 defeat at Wembley Stadium in London.

The Raiders have a bye next week before hosting the Chargers in Week 6.

If you need a last-minute Brandon Marshall replacement...
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

What is a Fantasy owner to do if Brandon Marshall's lingering ankle injury forces the Bears to sit him down in Week 4?

Luckily, the Bears play at 1:00 pm EST, so we will know if Marshall is inactive by 11:30 am, giving you plenty of time to shuffle your roster.However, if you don't have any capable replacements available on your bench -- remember, six teams are on bye this week -- here are some guys you may be able to snag in free agency at the last minute to fill in for Marshall, all of whom are listed among the top-50 at their positions by Dave Richard and Jamey Eisenberg:

Jaguars wide receiver Allen Robinson (42 percent owned), Raiders wide receiver James Jones (68 percent), Jets wide receiver Jeremy Kerley (29 percent), Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans (66 percent), or Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings (53 percent).

If you have Marshall slotted into the flex spot, consider running backs Jerick McKinnon (19 percent) of the Vikings, Justin Forsett (63 percent) of the Ravens, Jacquizz Rodgers (19 percent) of the Falcons, Jonathan Grimes (13 percent) of the Texans, or Dexter McCluster (19 percent) of the Titans

Looking ahead at Week 4 WR waiver wire options
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Jamey Eisenberg considers Jordan Matthews of the Eagles, Brian Quick of the Rams, Allen Robinson of the Jaguars, James Jones of the Raiders and Hakeem Nicks of the Colts the first five receivers you should be targeting on waivers ahead of Week 4.

Additionally, Riley Cooper, Greg Jennings, Jarrett Boykin, Kenny Stills and Miles Austin are mentioned as possibly worth dropping if you need the roster spot right away.

James Jones leads team despite step back
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Raiders wide receiver James Jones, who broke out with nine catches for 112 yards and a touchdown Week 2 against Houston, wasn't nearly as productive Week 3 at New England, catching three passes for 43 yards. But with a conservative game plan that yielded just 174 yards for quarterback Derek Carr, he was still the team's leading receiver.

Wide receiver Denarius Moore and running back Marcel Reece both had more targets (seven) than Jones (five), but Jones was clearly still Carr's favorite target once the Raiders opened up the passing game a little more in the second half. He didn't get a single target before then.

The Raiders have a more favorable matchup Week 4 against Miami. Jones will look to get back on track then.

Don't believe the hype on James Jones
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

James Jones is off to an amazing start this season with 14 catches for 204 yards and two touchdowns through two games. He comes into this matchup tied for the No. 8 receiver spot in standard Fantasy leagues. 

Rod Streater (hip) could be out for this game, which should help Jones solidify himself as the No. 1 receiver in Oakland. With that title, however, comes a likely matchup with Darrelle Revis, and we expect him to slow down Jones at home. 

Derek Carr could be under heavy duress in this matchup and we expect Jones to take a significant step back in his production.
