Raiders list inactives for preseason finale


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2014) The following players will not dress for Thursday's exhibition game finale for the Raiders against the Seahawks: Nick Roach, Sio Moore, Rod Streater, David Ausberry, James Jones, Justin Tuck, Antonio Smith and Kevin Burnett .

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.

Jones has been tossed to 17 times in the last two games with just six receptions.


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.


James Jones has injured hamstring


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/9/2014) Raiders receiver James Jones was not able to practice Monday because of a hamstring problem, reports the San Jose Mercury News.

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."


James Jones signing with Raiders


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/17/2014) Free agent receiver James Jones will sign a three-year deal with the Raiders, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter. The former Packer also had drawn some interest from the Jets and Panthers.

Jones, who turns 30 this month, caught 24 touchdown passes over the past three seasons but was deemed expendable by Green Bay.


James Jones lobbying for Panthers to sign him


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/16/2014) The Panthers need receivers badly, and free agent James Jones needs a new team. So it was not surprising to hear Jones tell ESPN he'd love the opportunity to play for Carolina.

"I would love to play with Cam [Newton]," Jones said.

Jones drew interest from the Jets but so far his market has been tepid.


Jets showing 'real interest' in James Jones


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2014) The Jets, who hosted receiver Eric Decker on Wednesday, also are showing "real interest" in Packers free-agent wideout James Jones, reports the New York Daily News. Jones turns 30 this month.

He caught three touchdown passes last season after hauling in a league-high 14 in 2012.


Lions drop out of James Jones bidding


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2014) The Lions are no longer pursuing free agent James Jones, reports DraftInsider.net. The Jets, Giants, Dolphins and a fourth team remain in contention for the Packers wideout, the report said.

Lions, Jets showing 'heavy interest' in James Jones


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2014) The Lions and Jets are showing "heavy interest" in free agent receiver James Jones, but the Packers "may still be in the mix," reports DraftInsider.net. Jones has spent his entire seven-year career in Green Bay.

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.


James Jones headed to the Giants?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/7/2014) Free agent receiver James Jones could conceivably re-unite with former Packers quarterbacks coach Ben McAdoo, now serving as the Giants offensive coordinator. That's the brainstorm of ESPN's Dan Graziano, who believes Jones makes the most sense for the Giants, particularly since the team isn't expected to bring back Hakeem Nicks.

Jones has yet to land a 1,000-yard season but has caught 24 touchdowns over the last three seasons (just three last year, though). 


James Jones' knee injury was worse than he let on


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/28/2014) The knee sprain Packers receiver James Jones suffered Oct. 13 was worse than he let on publicly, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. The injury caused Jones to miss two games, the only games he's missed in the last five seasons.

Jones broke two ribs against the Steelers on Dec. 22 but played through that injury.

"During his injuries at Green Bay, he was telling me, ‘My knee hurts, bro.’ He said it hurt," Keith Williams, Jones' receivers coach at San Jose State, told the paper. "The ribs hurt, too. The rib deal was real painful. The game he came back, he said, ‘Man, I’m kind of nervous. If I get hit there, it’s going to hurt.’ He said, ‘I’m nervous, man.’”

Jones, 29, is about to enter free agency.


James Jones played with two broken ribs


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/7/2014) Packers receiver James Jones broke two ribs Dec. 22 against the Steelers and was spitting up blood the next day, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. He did not miss a game or practice.

“I pride myself on being tough,” Jones told the paper. “I broke my ribs in Pittsburgh. But I played through it, practiced through it. You know, when you practice through it, you don’t have to put it on the injury report or none of that because I’m out there at practice every day.

“Its part of the game. You’ve got to go out there.”

An impending free agent, Jones wants to return to Green Bay but isn't sure how the process will play out. 

“I'm not one of those guys who sits at home and says I'm worth $30, $40 million,” Jones said. “We'll see what happens when the market comes and guys start making offers -- if they start making offers. We don't even know. We're sitting here talking about free agency. I could be going to Canada, you never know. So we'll see what happens.”


James Jones expected to test free-agent market


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/6/2014) Receiver James Jones might have played his last game with the Packers. The impending free agent told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel he's unsure about his future and will test the market.

Jones, who missed two games with a knee injury, caught 59 passes for 817 yards for three touchdowns this season after hauling in a ridiculous 14 touchdowns in 2012. He'll turn 30 in March.

Green Bay has receivers Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb and Jarrett Boykin under contract for 2014.


James Jones racks up 41 yards in Week 17 win


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Packers wide receiver James Jones turned in a decent performance during Sunday's win over the Bears in Week 17.

Jones came down with six of his seven targets for 41 yards in a 33-28 victory, clinching the NFC North title for Green Bay. He finished the regular season 59 receptions for 817 yards and three touchdowns.

The Packers will host the 49ers in the opening round of the playoffs.

James Jones snags nine, but none in the end zone, in defeat


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Packers wide receiver James Jones caught nine passes for 84 yards Sunday against Pittsburgh, but it was what he continued to fail to do that contributed to a critical loss to Pittsburgh.

That is, score a touchdown. Jones has tallied just three times this season despite his 53 receptions for 776 yards. He has scored just once since Oct. 6.

His catch total was his best since Week 5 and his receiving yards the most since Week 2. But he was held to just one reception in the fourth quarter by the Steelers, a 20-yarder a minute in that aided a drive that resulted in a field goal.

Jones will try to do more down the stretch and get into the end zone next Sunday in Chicago.


James Jones struggling to get to 10 Fantasy points


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2013) Packers wide receiver James Jones reached double digits in Fantasy points for the first time in his last eight games and for just the third time this season Week 15 at Dallas. Will Jones be able to repeat the feat in Week 16 vs. Pittsburgh?

Through 14 games against the Steelers, wide receivers average 156.4 receiving yards and 20.1 Fantasy points per week, which is the 10th-lowest average. Wide receivers have totaled 12 touchdowns, with nine coming in the last seven games.

No. 2 wide receivers have had some good games against the Steelers. Jerome Simpson, Aaron Dobson, Brian Hartline and Marvin Jones have all had at least 10 Fantasy points against Pittsburgh. Though, the Steelers have allowed just nine wide receivers this season to total at least 10 Fantasy points.

Jones hasn't had great numbers since hurting his knee in Week 6 and his totals haven't looked particularly well either since Aaron Rodgers has been sidelined with a collarbone injury. It doesn't appear Rodgers will return Week 16, meaning Matt Flynn will be back under center.

Jones is at best a No. 3 Fantasy wide receiver or flex option Week 16.


James Jones contributes rare touchdown to Week 15 win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Packers wideout James Jones did something Sunday that he had not done since Oct. 6. He scored a touchdown.

His 3-yard snag in the end zone with four minutes remaining in the game cut the Green Bay deficit to 36-31 and aided in an incredible comeback victory.

Jones managed one of the few big plays for the Packers in the first half with a 39-yarder on a slant play. He will try for more long gains when his team hosts Pittsburgh next Sunday.


James Jones can't break a long one


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/8/2013) Packers wide receiver James Jones -- whose production since returning from a knee injury in Week 9 has mostly depended on his ability to break a big play, like his 45-yarder in Week 11 or his 56-yarder in Week 13 -- couldn't get free Week 14 against the Falcons. With the Packers sticking to a shorter passing game on a snowy day, he caught four passes for 19 yards.

Jones' five targets were tied for second on the team, but he's now had back-to-back games with only five. He'll hope for better production Week 15 at Dallas, when starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers potentially returns from a broken collarbone.


James Jones competing for looks


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/4/2013) Even though wide receiver James Jones was perhaps the only productive Packer in a blowout loss at Detroit in Week 13, accounting for 79 of quarterback Matt Flynn's 139 passing yards, he wasn't targeted especially more than anyone else. He finished with five targets to Jordy Nelson's four to Jarrett Boykin's three.

The three will once again be competing for looks Week 14 against Atlanta -- a team that has struggled on defense. The Falcons rank 20th against the pass, allowing 247.8 yards per game. They've given up 24 touchdown passes, tied for second-most in the league.

Between the three wide receivers, Jones' production has declined the least since the Packers switched from Scott Tolzien to Flynn midway through Week 12. In fact, Weeks 11 and 12 were his best two since returning from a knee injury in Week 9. The Packers haven't ruled out a return for Aaron Rodgers in Week 14, but as of now, they plan to go with Flynn.

Still, because Jones has to compete for looks in what is clearly a suspect passing game, Jamey Eisenberg, Dave Richard and Nathan Zegura aren't particularly optimistic about his chances of contributing big numbers this week. All three rank him outside of their top 30 at wide receiver.
