Jones played 10 offensive snaps but was not targeted in Sunday's 45-20 loss to the Buccaneers.
Jones was relatively uninvolved despite fellow receiver Bryan Edwards' (ankle/foot) continued absence, while Nelson Agholor broke out for 107 yards and a touchdown on five catches across from Henry Ruggs. Hunter Renfrow also saw six targets as Jones' role figures to remain limited Week 8 at Cleveland.
Jones caught his only target for two yards in Sunday's 40-32 win over the Chiefs.
Jones, who logged a season-high 66 offensive snaps Week 4 against the Bills, saw his role severely reduced Sunday due to Henry Ruggs' (knee) return from a two-game absence. The upcoming bye week lends additional opportunity for receiver Bryan Edwards (ankle/foot) to get healthy as well, which would further downgrade Jones' outlook for a Week 7 tilt against the Buccaneers.
Jones caught four of six targets for 32 yards in Sunday's 30-23 loss to the Bills.
Jones averaged a mundane 5.3 yards per target, but he earned the start at wide receiver on the outside across from Nelson Agholor after rookies Henry Ruggs (knee/hamstring) and Bryan Edwards (ankle) were ruled out. Tight end Darren Waller and slot man Hunter Renfrow were the only Raiders to earn more targets than Jones on Sunday, and the latter could be on tap for additional work Week 5 against the Chiefs if Ruggs and Edwards remain sidelined.
Jones appears to be in line for an increased workload during Sunday's game agianst the Bills, Tashan Reed of The Athletic reports.
The Raiders will be without at least one starting wideout Sunday, with Bryan Edwards (ankle) ruled out, and Henry Ruggs (knee/hamstring) also is listed as doubtful. Jones would stand to start in three-wide sets if Edwards and Ruggs can't go, though both Hunter Renfrow and Nelson Agholor remain ahead of him on the depth chart. Through three games this season, Jones has secured all four of his targets for 47 yards and a touchdown.
Jones caught three passes on as many targets for 32 yards in Sunday's 36-20 loss to the Patriots.
Jones benefited from the absence of rookie Henry Ruggs (knee/hamstring) on Sunday, but the former could see even more work in Week 4 against the Bills if fellow receiver Bryan Edwards were to miss time with the ankle injury he suffered in New England. Through the Raiders' first three contests of the season, Jones has managed to catch all four of his targets for 47 yards and a score.
Jones caught a 15-yard touchdown pass in Monday's 34-24 win over the Saints.
Jones only has one target through two games, but he made the most of it with a crucial touchdown toward the end of the second quarter. However, he played just 18 of 80 offensive snaps (22 percent), so he doesn't have dependable fantasy value.
Jones could play a key role in the Raiders' offense this season, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.
With Tyrell Williams (shoulder) landing on reserve/injured earlier this week, Jones could find himself in a larger role this season. "Could not be more proud of Nelson Agholor and Zay Jones," Raiders GM Mike Mayock said when asked about the team's wideout depth. The Raiders acquired the 2017 second-rounder from the Bills last October and he went on to record 20 receptions for 147 yards across 10 games for the Silver and Black.
Jones may lose his roster spot, ESPN.com's Paul Gutierrez reports.
Tyrell Williams, Henry Ruggs, Hunter Renfrow and Bryan Edwards are locks, presumably leaving Jones to compete with Nelson Agholor and a slew of young players for one or two jobs. Early reports seem to favor Agholor as the veteran pick, and it would be cheaper for the Raiders to keep a late-round pick or an undrafted player over Jones for the sixth and final spot (if one even exists). The 2017 second-round pick never made any noise after he was traded from Buffalo to Oakland last October, with his 461 offensive snaps producing 20 receptions for only 147 yards. According to Pro Football Focus, Jones' mark of 0.58 yards per route was tied for last among the 117 wide receivers that drew 25 or more targets in 2019.
Jones caught two passes on as many targets for 21 yards in the Raiders' Week 17 loss to the Broncos.
Jones collected just 20 receptions for 147 yards on 27 targets in his 10-game stint with the Raiders after a midseason transition from Buffalo, despite logging a bountiful 466 offensive snaps. Without much competition in the room as it stands, Jones will look to secure the No. 3 role at wide receiver behind Tyrell Williams (foot) and Hunter Renfrow again in 2020 with one year remaining on his current contract.
Jones caught three passes on as many targets for 14 yards in Sunday's 24-17 win over the Chargers.
Jones logged less than 40 offensive snaps for the first time since Week 10 as the return of fellow receiver Hunter Renfrow (rib) somewhat cut into the former's playing time. Renfrow was exponentially more productive with seven receptions for 107 yards and a touchdown, while Jones was limited to less than 15 receiving yards for the fifth consecutive game.
Jones caught one of two targets in Sunday's 20-16 loss to the Jaguars.
Hunter Renfrow (ribs) was inactive, but Jones was targeted on just two of Derek Carr's 36 passes. Jones -- a 2017 second-round pick -- has yet to surpass 33 receiving yards in a game or score a touchdown this season. With Renfrow expected back this Sunday against the Chargers, Jones isn't a dependable fantasy option.
Jones caught one of three targets for five yards in Sunday's 42-21 loss to the Titans.
Jones once again failed to capitalize on significant playing time with Hunter Renfrow (ribs) still sidelined, and the former didn't even draw the start at the No. 2 receiver spot across from Tyrell Williams, as recent practice squad promotion Rico Gafford earned the honor. Jones has not caught more than three passes in a single contest this season, and Renfrow is trending toward a Week 15 return against the Jaguars.
Jones caught two of three targets for 14 yards in Sunday's 40-9 loss to the Chiefs.
Jones saw no more than three targets for the fourth consecutive contest, despite what should have been a pass-happy game flow for the Raiders given they fell behind 21-0 heading into the half. Jones' snap count -- he saw action on 70 percent of the offensive plays in Week 13 -- figures to remain favorable in Week 14 against the Titans with Hunter Renfrow likely still sidelined by a rib injury, but the former hasn't flashed much upside to this point.
Jones caught two passes on as many targets for five yards in Sunday's 34-3 loss to the Jets.
Jones has averaged a healthy 45.6 offensive snaps played per game since joining the Raiders, but he's failed to see more than three targets in a single contest. That all could change moving forward, however, as No. 2 receiver Hunter Renfrow is looking at an extended absence after suffering a broken rib and punctured lung during Sunday's blowout loss. While Jones becomes a candidate for increased involvement in the aerial attack, the Raiders have an intriguing matchup against a beatable Chiefs secondary in Week 13.
Jones caught all three of his targets for 25 yards in Sunday's 17-10 win over the Bengals.
Jones' playing time isn't much of a concern with at least 39 offensive snaps logged throughout the Raiders' past three games, but he's failed to eclipse 27 receiving yards in a single contest since joining the Silver and Black. Expect the offense to lean on rookie running back Josh Jacobs again in Week 12 against the Jets.
Jones caught one of three targets for 10 yards in Thursday's 26-24 win over the Chargers.
All three of the Raiders' active running backs caught more passes than Jones on Thursday night, so it wasn't exactly a memorable performance for the former Buffalo Bill. Jones will look to bounce back against a struggling Bengals squad in Week 11, and there's a chance they'll still be without starting cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick (knee).
Jones caught three of his four targets for 21 yards and rushed once for three yards in Sunday's 31-24 win over the Lions.
Jones saw 66 snaps on offense -- three times more than in his Raiders debut a week prior -- but didn't see many more opportunities, as Hunter Renfrow starred in the passing game. The 24-year-old likely will remain a fringe option in a Week 10 matchup with the Chargers.
Jones hauled in two passes on as many targets for 27 yards in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Texans.
Jones made his debut as a Raider on Sunday in Houston after being scratched from the lineup in Week 7, still fresh off his trade from the Bills as he continued to learn the new playbook. Jones logged 22 offensive snaps against the Texans, which placed him behind fellow receivers Tyrell Williams, Hunter Renfrow and Trevor Davis, as expected. A similar level of involvement should be on tap for Jones in Week 9 against the Lions, who could be without starting defensive backs Darius Slay (hamstring) and Tracy Walker (knee).
Jones is active for the first time as a member of the Raiders in Sunday's Week 8 tilt against the Texans.
Jones will suit up against a depleted Texans secondary that will be missing Johnathan Joseph (hamstring), Bradley Roby (hamstring) and Tashaun Gipson (back). Jones was a healthy scratch in Week 7 against the Packers, but he's apparently picked up enough of the playbook at this point to take the field.
Jones (coach's decision) is inactive Week 7 against the Packers.
It's a bit of a surprise to see Jones on the inactive list, as he was expected to play a depth role this week with Tyrell Williams (foot) and Dwayne Harris (ankle) both on the sidelines. Instead, the Oakland receiving corps will be left with Hunter Renfrow, Keelan Doss and Trevor Davis to lead the attack.
