Report: Raiders release wide receiver James Jones
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

The Raiders have reportedly released wide reciever James Jones, according to CSN Bay Area.

General manager Reggie McKenzie informed Jones of his termination Sunday. In his only season with Oakland, Jones had 73 catches for 666 yards and six touchdowns. The team will save $3.43 million against the 2015 salary cap.

Kenbrell Thompkins leads Raiders receivers in Week 16 win
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Raiders wide receiver Kenbrell Thompkins led his team with five receptions and 90 yards in Sunday's 26-24 win over the Bills in Week 16.

Thompkins' highlights have ben few and far between this season, but he was able to haul in a 50-yard reception on third-and-13 late in the first quarter to set his team up with first-and-goal. The Raiders would score their first touchdown of the game two plays later. Thompkins came into the game just just 170 yards on 15 receptions.

Receiver Andre Holmes also came through with a big play in the win, hauling in a 51-yard pass late in the fourth quarter on another third-and-long play. The Raiders scored a key touchdown four plays later. Holmes finished with 73 yards on three receptions.

Two Raiders managed to catch touchdowns in the victory, and for both players, it was their only catch of the game. Wide receiver James Jones hauled in a wide-open three-yard touchdown early in the second quarter, while fullback Jamize Olawale scored the decisive one-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter.

The Raiders have a trip to Denver to face the Broncos on tap in Week 17.

James Jones, Andre Holmes strengthened by numbers
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

After weeks of contributing next to nothing, Raiders wide receivers James Jones and Andre Holmes suddenly put up relevant numbers Week 15 at Kansas City, the former delivering eight catches for 57 yards and a touchdown and the latter providing five catches for 70 yards.

Jones had averaged 4.3 catches for 27.3 yards in his previous six games. Holmes had averaged 2.3 for 28.0 during that same stretch. Incidentally, the last time either of them was relevant was Week 8 at Cleveland, when rookie quarterback Derek Carr threw for 328 yards.

So what did this game have in common with that one? In both, Carr attempted more than 50 passes. At least for Week 15, that meant both Jones and Holmes got ample opportunity to contribute, each finishing with double-digit targets.

So what caused Carr to throw so much, and how can we know when it'll happen again? Ah, that's the question. The Chiefs have actually been one of the more difficult teams to throw against, as have the Browns, and though the Raiders fell behind in both games, giving them more incentive to pass, that's kind of what they do every week.

As with most scenarios involving a rookie quarterback -- or the Raiders, for that matter -- it's going to be too unpredictable for you to count on it in Fantasy. Leave Jones and Holmes for deeper leagues.

Raiders backup pass catchers do little Week 14
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Raiders backup pass catchers didn't do much Week 14 against the 49ers. 

Andre Holmes picked up two receptions for 38 yards. He finished third in receiving yards during the contest. Vincent Brown caught one pass, gaining 20 yards. James Jones managed two receptions. He finished with 11 yards. Offensive tackle Donald Penn was the big star, however. He hauled in a 3 yard touchdown from Derek Carr in the second quarter. It was Penn's only catch of the game. 

The group will look for more Week 15 against the Chiefs.
