Zay Jones

Zay Jones, who has been a consistent presence in the Jacksonville offense this season, is coming off his best game of the year in Week 3, racking up 10 catches on 11 targets for 85 yards and a touchdown. With his hype higher than ever, the wideout popped up on the injury report on Thursday with an ankle injury, which is never a good sign. On the year, Trevor Lawrence has targeted Jones 24 times, which has made him an intriguing waiver wire add going into Week 4. However, will he even be able to suit up against the Eagles? Here’s what we know.

Zay Jones has been listed as questionable for Week 4 against the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact

Jones practiced on Friday after he was sidelined on Thursday. Doug Pederson said Friday he wanted to see if Jones was 100 percent healthy. It sounds like Jones should suit up barring any late setbacks.

What the Experts are Saying

Jones was a popular waiver wire pickup this week, after an 11-target outing in Week 3 that turned into 10 receptions for 85 yards and one touchdown. He ran a route on 80% of dropbacks splitting time both out wide and in the slot. However, I am concerned about the matchup here when Jones is tasked with winning on the outside. As previously noted, the Eagles boast three top-tier cornerbacks with their best two – James Bradberry and Darius Slay – defending the perimeter. They rank fourth and third respectively in the lowest passer rating generated when targeted in coverage this season. Therefore I’d be bearish on thrusting Jones into my Week 4 starting lineup. We are just one week removed from three catches for 23 yards for Jones in Week 2.
