Player Outlook
Jones is getting a fresh start with the Jaguars, and he could emerge as a waiver-wire option for Fantasy managers this year. Jones is not worth drafting in the majority of leagues, but he is someone to monitor in training camp. Jacksonville has revamped its receiving corps with Christian Kirk, Evan Engram and Jones joining the Jaguars. Jones will hopefully become a top target for Trevor Lawrence, and we've seen Jones average 10.3 PPR points per game once upon a time in Buffalo in 2018. In every other season, Jones has been at 6.2 PPR points per game or less, so keep that in mind. But hopefully he can take advantage of his new opportunity in Jacksonville and become a potential Fantasy option this year.

  • Jaguars' Zay Jones: Shows chemistry with Lawrence

    Jones caught two of four targets for 47 yards in Friday's 24-13 preseason loss to the Browns. Starting quarterback Trevor Lawrence connected with Jones on a 32-yard deep ball on Jacksonville's first offensive play of the game, and they linked up again for a 15-yard gain later in the first quarter. Jones finished as Jacksonville's leading receiver in the game, and this performance coupled with what has reportedly been a productive training camp has Jones in the hunt for a starting job in a receiving corps that also includes Christian Kirk (ankle), Marvin Jones and Laviska Shenault (hamstring). How the wide receivers are deployed in Jacksonville's next preseason game against the Steelers on Aug. 20 should help define where Jones stands in the pecking order.

  • Jaguars' Zay Jones: Showing out in camp

    Jones is "having an awesome camp," Hays Carlyon of 1010 AM WJXL Jacksonville reports. Jones, Marvin Jones and Christian Kirk have seen most of the first-team snaps, with Laquon Treadwell mixing in as the top backup on the perimeter. There have been multiple reports about Zay Jones drawing plenty of looks downfield, which is perhaps a surprise after he did his best work in shallower areas for Las Vegas in 2021. Jones received his share of deep looks with the Raiders, but he caught only four of 16 targets 20-plus yards downfield (with four others being intercepted). Meanwhile, Jones was far more efficient on intermediate passes (14 of 21 for 209 yards) and short throws (21 of 24 for 168), per Pro Football Focus.

  • Jaguars' Zay Jones: Unavailable Thursday

    Jones won't play in the Hall of Fame Game against the Raiders on Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. The teams chosen to appear in this exhibition rarely play starters or even regulars on both sides of the ball. Along with Jones, Christian Kirk, Marvin Jones, Laviska Shenault and Jamal Agnew won't suit up, leaving Laquon Treadwell, Tim Jones, Jeff Cotton, Kevin Austin and Marvin Hall, among others, available to the Jaguars at wide receiver.

  • Jaguars' Zay Jones: Moving on to Jacksonville

    The Jaguars and Jones agreed to a three-year contract Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. This marks the second wide receiver to ink a deal with Jacksonville to open free agency after Christian Kirk landed a massive four-year deal earlier Monday. A second-round pick of the Bills back in 2017, Jones joins the third organization of his career, coming off a 47-546-1 line on 70 targets with the Raiders last season. He'll likely vie with Laviska Shenault for the No. 3 WR spot behind Kirk and Marvin Jones.

  • Raiders' Zay Jones: Scores in playoff loss

    Jones caught five passes for 61 yards and one touchdown on eight targets against Cincinnati on Saturday. It's another encouraging entry in what's been an impressive breakout season for Jones. After he played sparingly in the first seven weeks, the Raiders upped Jones' workload and usage following the Week 8 bye, from which point he saw 71 targets in the next 11 games, including this playoff game. Jones is a 2017 second-round pick who dominated at the collegiate level and has 4.45 speed, so the way he played in 2021 is more in line with what his career expectations were all along.

  • Raiders' Zay Jones: Targeted eight times in OT victory

    Jones caught five of eight targets for 27 yards in Sunday's 35-32 overtime win over the Chargers. Jones finished the regular season with 47 receptions for 546 yards and a touchdown on 70 targets in 17 contests, enjoying his best receiving totals since a 2018 campaign with the Bills that included 56 catches and seven scores. The 26-year-old saw his role within the Raiders' aerial attack expand against the Cowboys in Week 12 when he caught more than two passes in a single game for the first time all season, and Jones ultimately averaged 7.7 targets per tilt over the team's final seven games. Jones, who's slated to enter unrestricted free agency in 2022, should remain busy in a wild-card matchup against the Bengals this weekend.

  • Raiders' Zay Jones: Remains heavily involved

    Jones recorded eight receptions on 10 targets for 120 yards in Sunday's 23-20 win over the Colts. Jones maintained a strong role in the Raiders offense, tallying at least five receptions for the fifth time in his last six games. He also displayed some big-play ability that was lacking in past performances, recording long gains of 42, 26 and 13 yards to surpass 100 receiving yards in a game for the first time in his career. Though he hasn't displayed much potential for big performances, Jones has developed a rapport with quarterback Derek Carr and will likely remain heavily involved in the game plan heading into a Week 18 matchup against the Chargers.

  • Raiders' Zay Jones: Six grabs in Sunday's win

    Jones caught six of eight targets for 50 yards in Sunday's 17-13 win over the Broncos. He was Derek Carr's favorite option on the afternoon, leading the Raiders in receptions and targets, although Foster Moreau led the team in yards and Hunter Renfrow hauled in Carr's only TD. Jones has put together a 25-222-0 line on 36 targets over the last five games, giving him some deep-league PPR value heading into a Week 17 clash with the Colts.

  • Raiders' Zay Jones: Ready to take on Denver

    Jones (toe) was cleared from the injury report Friday and will play in Sunday's game against Denver. Jones is coming off season highs for catches (six), yards (67) and targets (nine) in last week's 16-14 win over Cleveland. He hasn't scored a TD since Week 1 and hasn't come close to a 100-yard game, but he does have four in a row with five or more targets and three or more catches.

  • Raiders' Zay Jones: Upgrades to limited practice

    Jones (toe) was listed as a limited practice participant Thursday, George Stoia of The Denver Gazette reports. This is a step in the right direction for Jones, who sat out Wednesday's walkthrough due to this injury. If Jones is able to upgrade to full participation Friday, the starting wide receiver could avoid Friday's injury report altogether ahead of Sunday's game against the Broncos.

  • Raiders' Zay Jones: Sits out Wednesday

    Jones didn't participate at Wednesday's walkthrough practice due to a toe injury. Jones presumably picked up the injury during Monday's win over the Browns while catching six of nine targets for 67 yards. The 26-year-old has played a significant role in the Raiders' receiving corps since the Week 8 bye, and he may need to practice in some capacity Thursday or Friday to have a chance of suiting up this weekend versus Denver.

  • Raiders' Zay Jones: Sixth grab sets up winning FG

    Jones caught six of nine targets for 67 yards in Monday's 16-14 win over the Raiders. Jones tied Foster Moreau for the team lead in targets and bested Moreau by two receiving yards to pace the Raiders. His most important catch was his last one, as Jones' 15-yard snag set up Daniel Carlson's game-winning 48-yard field goal as time expired. Jones has stepped up recently for the receiver-starved Raiders -- he has 19 catches in his last four games, after having just nine all season before this strong stretch.

  • Raiders' Zay Jones: Raiders-Browns moved to Monday

    Jones and the Raiders will no longer play the Browns on Saturday, after the NFL officially rescheduled the matchup between the two teams for Monday at 5 p.m. ET. Due to ongoing COVID-19-related issues within the Cleveland organization, the NFL is hopeful that by delaying the game two days, the Browns will restore enough players from the reserve/COVID-19 list to alleviate depth concerns on the roster. Assuming the Week 15 game is played Monday as planned, Jones and Las Vegas will face a quick turnaround for the Week 16 contest versus the Broncos, which is still expected to be played Sunday, Dec. 26 as scheduled.

  • Raiders' Zay Jones: Three catches against Washington

    Jones caught three of five targets for 21 yards in Sunday's 17-15 loss to Washington. He and Bryan Edwards put up nearly identical numbers, but both took a back seat to another 100-yard performance by Hunter Renfrow. Jones has seen an uptick in volume the last two weeks, posting an 8-80-0 line on 12 targets as the Raiders scramble to plug the holes in their passing game, and his new role gives him some modest upside in Week 14 against Kansas City.

  • Raiders' Zay Jones: Seven targets in overtime win

    Jones caught five of seven targets for 59 yards in the Raiders' 36-33 overtime victory over Dallas on Thanksgiving Day. Jones hadn't caught more than one pass in a single contest since Week 1, but his five receptions against the Cowboys were a personal best for his time with the Raiders. Despite the recent addition of DeSean Jackson, Jones continues to see a significant offensive snap share alongside Bryan Edwards and Hunter Renfrow. Meanwhile, tight end Darren Waller (knee) is considered week-to-week, potentially opening up additional target opportunities for the aforementioned receiving corps versus Washington in Week 13.

  • Raiders' Zay Jones: Targeted twice Sunday

    Jones caught one of two targets for 20 yards in Sunday's 32-13 loss to the Bengals. Jones' offensive snap share surpassed the 70-percent mark for a third straight week, but he was held without a reception until the Raiders' penultimate drive of the game. On a more positive note, each of Jones' last four catches have gone for 20 or more yards. However, Jones could see his opportunities diminish soon if newcomer DeSean Jackson becomes more involved in the offense.

  • Raiders' Zay Jones: Posts another one-catch performance

    Jones caught one of three targets for 22 yards in Sunday's 41-14 loss to Kansas City. Jones paced the Raiders' wide receiver corps in offensive snap share for a second straight week, but the ample playing time has translated into just two total receptions for 44 yards on seven targets. The newly acquired DeSean Jackson coughed up the ball after hauling in a 38-yard pass, but he was otherwise relatively uninvolved in his Las Vegas debut. Nonetheless, Jackson's ability to stretch the field figures to earn him more opportunities as he settles into the offense, which probably doesn't bode well for Jones' already modest target volume.

  • Raiders' Zay Jones: Held to one catch

    Jones recorded one reception on four targets or 20 yards in Sunday's 23-16 loss to the Giants. Jones was one of three Raiders pass catchers to rack up four targets, though he wasn't efficient in his performance. His only catch came midway through the third quarter, and it help set up a field goal for the team. It was only his third game with multiple targets this season, and the anticipated addition of DeSean Jackson may cut into his ability to continue to see volume moving forward.

  • Raiders' Zay Jones: Steps into starting role

    The Raiders list Jones as a starting receiver along with Bryan Edwards and Hunter Renfrow on the team's updated Week 9 depth chart, Case Keefer of the Las Vegas Sun reports. Renfrow will serve as the Raiders' top option out of the slot, while Jones joins Edwards as a starter at either perimeter spot. Through the Raiders' first seven games, Jones has held a bit role in the passing attack, as he's commanded no more than two targets in any contest while stringing together a 6-115-1 receiving line. Jones should be in store for a sizable uptick in snaps if not targets, though he'll still likely remain a lesser priority in the passing game than Renfrow, Edwards and tight end Darren Waller.

  • Raiders' Zay Jones: Secures difficult catch in win

    Jones caught his only target for 43 yards in Sunday's 33-22 win over the Eagles. Jones made an impressive 43-yard sideline grab on third and long when the Raiders were trailing by seven points in the first quarter, but he ultimately played less than 15 offensive snaps for a fourth consecutive game. Jones is averaging just one target per game ahead of the team's Week 8 bye.
