Jones caught three of eight targets for 35 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 20-13 loss to the Texans. Jones led the team in targets and got into the end zone for the first time this season on a 16-yard play in the fourth quarter. While this was a useful performance, he has reached 35 receiving yards just three times this season and his fantasy outlook could take a further hit if starting quarterback Josh Allen (elbow) misses time. Jones will look to build on this effort next Sunday against the Colts.
Jones caught three of four targets for 20 yards in Sunday's win over the Titans. Jones' three catches and 20 yards actually led the entire team, as the Bills only threw the ball 20 times in trying to build a better mousetrap with a rookie quarterback, this time handing the ball off to LeSean McCoy 24 times after doing nearly the exact opposite the previous week and getting destroyed by the Packers. Expect the run emphasis to continue as long as Buffalo can stay in the contest, the next one coming against the Texans. As for Jones, he's still looking for his first TD catch of 2018 and hasn't even posted a 70-yard game in 20 pro outings. It's possible no Buffalo wide receiver is worth owning in anything but the deepest of leagues.
Jones caught four of seven targets for 38 yards in Sunday's 22-0 loss to the Packers. Jones led his team in targets, though three guys came in right behind him with six. The No. 2 wide receiver in arguably the league's least threatening passing game isn't a very appealing option most weeks. Week 5 against the Titans should be no exception.
Jones caught two of three targets for 63 yards in Sunday's loss to the Chargers. The big one was a 57-yarder from rookie quarterback Josh Allen, surprisingly the team's longest completion since Sept. 15, 2016. While it's a nice play on the books, Jones remains an unreliable option with three catches or less in 15 of his 17 pro games. Perhaps even more surprisingly, Jones is still looking for his first 70-yard game.
Jones caught three balls on six targets for 26 yards in Sunday's blowout loss to the Ravens. Jones was second on the team in targets to Kelvin Benjamin's seven and saw the field (94 percent of offensive snaps) more than any other Buffalo receiver, so his role as a starter seems clear. However, the Bills have an entirely new offense this season with uncertainty at the quarterback spot, where LeSean McCoy and Benjamin will remain the focal points if things ever start running smoother than they did Sunday. Jones remains a deep reserve thought, with some upside if he starts to prove himself at the pro level, something that really hasn't happened yet.
