Raiders' Zay Jones: Lack of volume continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Raiders' Zay Jones: Contained to 14 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Raiders' Zay Jones: Musters up five yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Raiders' Zay Jones: Disappoints in Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Raiders' Zay Jones: Held to two catches in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Raiders' Zay Jones: Target share may increase
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Raiders' Zay Jones: Tallies three catches in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Raiders' Zay Jones: Collects just one reception Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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).

Raiders' Zay Jones: Totals 24 yards in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Raiders' Zay Jones: Two receptions in Raiders debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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).

Raiders' Zay Jones: Active in Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Raiders' Zay Jones: Healthy scratch Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Raiders' Zay Jones: Unlikely to start Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is expected to play a depth role against the Packers on Sunday, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.

With Tyrell Williams nursing a case of plantar fasciitis, the Raiders are expected to rely on a combination of Trevor Davis, Hunter Renfrow and Keelan Doss as starters at wide receiver. Jones, who was traded to Oakland from the Bills last week, projects to play reserve snaps alongside Marcell Ateman. Of course, if Jones is able to make the most of his limited opportunities against Green Bay, it's conceivable that the 2017 second-round pick could earn a larger offensive role going forward.

Raiders' Zay Jones: Traded across coasts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones was traded to the Raiders from the Bills in exchange for a 2021 fifth-round pick Monday, Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports.

Jones was virtually non-existent in the Bills' game plan Sunday against the Titans, playing just one offensive snap. After getting bypassed by newcomers John Brown and Cole Beasley in the offense in Buffalo, the 2017 second-round pick will get an opportunity elsewhere. With the Raiders on their bye for Week 6, it will give Jones extra time to get acclimated to his new team and playbook ahead of Week 7's game against Green Bay. Tyrell Williams (foot), J.J. Nelson (knee) and Dwayne Harris (ankle) all missed Sunday's game against the Bears in London, so Jones could get an opportunity as early as Week 7.

Bills' Zay Jones: Missing from offensive game plan
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones played just one offensive snap during Sunday's win over Tennessee and was not targeted on the play.

Jones has been mostly a disappointment since being drafted in the second round in 2017. He looked like he was starting to figure things out at the tail end of last season, then got bypassed by newcomers John Brown and Cole Beasley this past summer. Following a lousy game against the Patriots in Week 4 (two catches for four yards) where he also drew coach Sean McDermott's ire for not hustling on a play, the Bills gave Duke Williams -- promoted from the practice squad just a day earlier -- 78 percent of the offensive snaps and a key role in the Week 5 game plan. Jones should obviously be nowhere near your fantasy lineups.

Bills' Zay Jones: Ample targets, poor production
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones caught just two of eight targets for four yards during Sunday's loss to the Patriots.

The four yards represent his worst 2019 outing to date, yet his high of 33 yards in Week 3 is nothing to speak of either. Jones remains the No. 3 option among Buffalo wide receivers, and he's well behind John Brown and Cole Beasley in the pecking order. Rookie tight end Dawson Knox seems to be passing Jones as a receiving threat as well. Jones was a second-round pick in 2017, but in his third season it's looking like he may never live up to those high expectations.

Bills' Zay Jones: Good to go this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (shoulder) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

After logging limited practices Wednesday and Thursday, Jones practiced fully Friday, gaining clearance to play Sunday in the process. Three games into the season, Jones has hauled in five of his 10 targets for 65 yards, making him a fantasy option only in the deepest of formats, especially while going up against the Patriots' stingy defense in Week 4.

Bills' Zay Jones: Remains limited at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (shoulder) logged another limited practice Thursday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Jones continued to sport a red (non-contact) jersey at Thursday's practice, but he'll have one more chance to shed that Friday, when the Bills have their final practice in advance of Sunday's game against the Patriots.

Bills' Zay Jones: Shoulder injury revealed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones, who sported a non-contact jersey during Wednesday's practice, was later listed as a limited participant due to a shoulder injury.

Usually when players are limited in the first practice of the week, they're able to play in the upcoming game, so Jones doesn't look in any serious peril of missing a huge matchup with the Patriots this Sunday. Jones required shoulder surgery in January 2018, though it hasn't been revealed yet whether his latest injury involves the same shoulder.

September 25, 2019 04:20 PM
Bills' Zay Jones: Sports non-contact jersey
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is wearing a non-contact jersey in practice Wednesday, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports.

The Bills should elaborate on the situation after practice concludes, but Jones is likely dealing with an injury of some sort. Through the team's first three games, Jones has recorded five catches for 65 yards and no touchdowns.
