Latest Updates

 

Raiders' James Jones doesn't do much Week 7


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Raiders wideout James Jones received a team-high eight targets Week 7.

He was unable to do much with those targets, though. Jones hauled in four receptions for 35 yards. He caught his last pass in the third quarter, and was shut out during the fourth. Jones will hope for more Week 8 against the Browns. 


Not a big enough role for Brice Butler


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/14/2014) Raiders wide receiver Brice Butler made his presence known in Week 6 against San Diego, catching three passes for 64 yards and a touchdown. But in terms of targets, he was still the third wheel in a receiving corps led by Andre Holmes and James Jones.

And that was on a career day for rookie quarterback Derek Carr.

Carr won't always be so good, and the big plays won't always be so easy to come by. Remember, 47 of Butler's yards came on his touchdown grab in the third quarter. Remove it from the equation, and he was the same peripheral contributor he has been all season.

Jamey Eisenberg doesn't rank Butler especially high in his Playing the Waiver Wire column, and I agree with that assessment. He doesn't have a big enough role in a consistently prolific passing attack.


Raiders' James Jones gets back in the end zone Week 6


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Raiders wide receiver James Jones got in the end zone in a Week 6 defeat to San Diego on Sunday.

Jones came down with a 6-yard touchdown pass from Derek Carr in the third quarter for his third touchdown of the season. He was targeted seven times and finished with five catches for 56 yards and a score, averaging 11.2 yards per grab in a 31-28 defeat. He has 328 receiving yards through five games.

Jones will look to score touchdowns in back-to-back games for the second time this season in Week 7 at home against Arizona.


James Jones posts 83 receiving yards in London game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Raiders wide receiver James Jones got off to a fast start and led the team in receiving Sunday against the Dolphins in Week 4.

Jones caught an acrobatic 30-yard pass on the first play of the game. Five of his six receptions came from rookie Derek Carr, who went down with injuries to the knee and ankle. In the fourth quarter, Jones caught a 29-yard pass from backup Matt McGloin for his second-longest gain of the day. He caught all six of his targets for 83 yards in a 38-14 defeat at Wembley Stadium in London.

The Raiders have a bye next week before hosting the Chargers in Week 6.


If you need a last-minute Brandon Marshall replacement...


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/26/2014) What is a Fantasy owner to do if Brandon Marshall's lingering ankle injury forces the Bears to sit him down in Week 4?

Luckily, the Bears play at 1:00 pm EST, so we will know if Marshall is inactive by 11:30 am, giving you plenty of time to shuffle your roster.However, if you don't have any capable replacements available on your bench -- remember, six teams are on bye this week -- here are some guys you may be able to snag in free agency at the last minute to fill in for Marshall, all of whom are listed among the top-50 at their positions by Dave Richard and Jamey Eisenberg:

Jaguars wide receiver Allen Robinson (42 percent owned), Raiders wide receiver James Jones (68 percent), Jets wide receiver Jeremy Kerley (29 percent), Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans (66 percent), or Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings (53 percent).

If you have Marshall slotted into the flex spot, consider running backs Jerick McKinnon (19 percent) of the Vikings, Justin Forsett (63 percent) of the Ravens, Jacquizz Rodgers (19 percent) of the Falcons, Jonathan Grimes (13 percent) of the Texans, or Dexter McCluster (19 percent) of the Titans. 


Looking ahead at Week 4 WR waiver wire options


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/23/2014) Jamey Eisenberg considers Jordan Matthews of the Eagles, Brian Quick of the Rams, Allen Robinson of the Jaguars, James Jones of the Raiders and Hakeem Nicks of the Colts the first five receivers you should be targeting on waivers ahead of Week 4.

Additionally, Riley Cooper, Greg Jennings, Jarrett Boykin, Kenny Stills and Miles Austin are mentioned as possibly worth dropping if you need the roster spot right away.  


James Jones leads team despite step back


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/21/2014) Raiders wide receiver James Jones, who broke out with nine catches for 112 yards and a touchdown Week 2 against Houston, wasn't nearly as productive Week 3 at New England, catching three passes for 43 yards. But with a conservative game plan that yielded just 174 yards for quarterback Derek Carr, he was still the team's leading receiver.

Wide receiver Denarius Moore and running back Marcel Reece both had more targets (seven) than Jones (five), but Jones was clearly still Carr's favorite target once the Raiders opened up the passing game a little more in the second half. He didn't get a single target before then.

The Raiders have a more favorable matchup Week 4 against Miami. Jones will look to get back on track then.


Don't believe the hype on James Jones


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/18/2014) James Jones is off to an amazing start this season with 14 catches for 204 yards and two touchdowns through two games. He comes into this matchup tied for the No. 8 receiver spot in standard Fantasy leagues. 

Rod Streater (hip) could be out for this game, which should help Jones solidify himself as the No. 1 receiver in Oakland. With that title, however, comes a likely matchup with Darrelle Revis, and we expect him to slow down Jones at home. 

Derek Carr could be under heavy duress in this matchup and we expect Jones to take a significant step back in his production.

For a complete list of Week 3 options, read my latest Start 'Em and Sit 'Em.


James Jones cracks century mark, sneaks late-game touchdown


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Raiders wide receiver James Jones lost a fumble but still enjoyed a productive performance with a late touchdown Week 2 at home against the Texans.

Jones caught a back-shoulder pass from Derek Carr before fumbling once. He recovered his own fumble, but was stripped again by Johnathan Joseph on what would have been a huge gain. He came down with a 5-yard touchdown reception with 13 seconds left in the game.

He was targeted a game-high 14 times and finished with nine catches for 112 yards and a touchdown, averaging 12.4 yards per grab. Through two games, he has 12 catches for 146 yards and two touchdowns.

The Raiders will travel to New England for a Week 3 showdown against the Patriots.


Rod Streater, James Jones lead Oakland receivers


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/7/2014) Raiders receivers Rod Streater and James Jones led the team in receiving Sunday in Week 1 at the Jets in a 19-14 loss.

Streater was second on the team in targets with seven and finished with five catches for 46 yards and a touchdown. Jones had three targets for three catches, 34 yard and a touchdown.

Denarius Moore led the Raiders in targets with eight, but he finished with just two catches for 8 yards.

The Raiders play host to the Texans in Week 2.

James Jones gets plenty of attention, but not many catches


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Raiders wideout James Jones was targeted a team-high 10 times Friday night in Green Bay. Unfortunately, he snagged only four for 36 yards.

James Jones, Rod Streater named Week 3 preseason starters


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2014) Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Olson revealed Tuesday that James Jones and Rod Streater will be the team's starting wide receivers for Friday's preseason game against Green Bay, Comcast SportsNet California reports.

The designation is notable in that most teams use the third preseason game as a dry run for the regular season. Jones started over Andre Holmes in the Raiders' last preseason game as well but caught just two of his seven targets for 42 yards.


James Jones gets the start over Andre Holmes in preseason game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) Raiders receiver James Jones leaped over Andre Holmes in the starting lineup Friday against the Lions in preseason action.

Jones played the entire first half with Matt Schaub and Derek Carr under center. He was targeted seven times and finished with two catches for 42 yards.

Holmes came off the bench in the second half to work with Carr and Matt McGloin. He caught two of the five passes thrown his way for 29 yards.

James Jones doesn't crack starting lineup


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/4/2014) The Raiders' initial depth chart lists receiver James Jones on the second team, behind starters Rod Streater and Andre Holmes. Greg Little joins Jones on the second team.

Denarius Moore and Juron Criner are the third-string wideouts.

Jones had a career-high 817 receiving yards last year with the Packers. He's caught 24 touchdown passes over the past three seasons.


James Jones has sprained shoulder


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/20/2014) Raiders receiver James Jones has a sprained left shoulder, reports Comcast Sports Net.

Jones injured himself on Tuesday diving to catch a pass near the sideline. Coach Dennis Allen said Jones' sprained AC joint should be fine by training camp.

Jones also missed time last week with a hamstring strain.

The injury does not appear to be serious, and Jones should be ready for the start of training camp.


Allen will find role for James Jones


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/25/2014) New Raiders receiver James Jones is expected to play a prominent role this season after signing a three-year deal as a free agent from Green Bay. But how big a role remains to be seen, according to coach Dennis Allen.

Allen said at the NFL owners meetings Tuesday that Jones' role within the offense is "to be determined."

"How big a role that is will be dictated by the relationship he and the quarterback can build together and how effective he can be as a receiver," Allen said. "Obviously we feel like he can be very effective as a receiver, and I think he'll fit in nicely with the receiving corps we have already."

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

James Jones lobbying for Panthers to sign him


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

James Jones mentions Colts, Chargers as landing spots


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/5/2014) Impending free agent receiver James Jones wants to return to the Packers. If that doesn't happen, Jones can see himself fitting in with the Colts or Chargers, reports NFL.com.

"I've thought about places that I would like to go play, whether it's in Indy or there's coming back home, San Diego or somewhere. Teams have popped up in my head. I can't say I haven't thought about it, but in a perfect world I'd love to go back (to Green Bay)."


Report: Packers content to let James Jones leave


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2014) The Packers have not offered free agent receiver James Jones a new contract, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. "I don't think [GM] Ted Thompson wants him," Jones' agent, Frank Bauer, told the paper.

The paper doesn't expect the Packers to make an offer before Jones hits the open market March 11. Jones turns 30 next month, and the team is happy with the development of Jarrett Boykin behind Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb, the report said.
