James Jones released by Chargers

The San Diego Chargers have released WR James Jones.

Fantasy Impact

Jones was brought into San Diego in the wake of Stevie Johnson's season-ending injury in training camp, however, his stay did not last long. The nine-year veteran had an outstanding 2015 season, which could be what attracts other suitors to Jones, but he will likely have to wait until the injury bug hits around the league to land with a new club.

James Jones has modest debut for Chargers in Week 1 of preseason

James Jones took the field as a San Diego Charger for the first time in a preseason Week 1 loss to the Tennessee Titans. He was not running with the starters and caught 3-of-6 targets for 27 total yards.

Fantasy Impact

While he is currently buried in the opening depth chart for the Bolts, Jones could actually see a pretty sizable workload if he can lock down the starting slot-receiver role. The Chargers will continue to pass early and often, so if he starts in three-wide sets he will see enough targets to keep himself fantasy relevant.

James Jones struggling with Chargers

James Jones has struggled to create separation in the early going. He's currently competing for the role of WR3 with the Chargers.

Fantasy Impact

Jones was brought in for a veteran presence in the WR competition after the injury to Steve Johnson. However, he's no sure bet to make the team or hold the role of WR3, as Tyrell Williams has impressed and continues to do so in camp. Williams has more long-term potential, and he's a player to watch in dynasty and deeper leagues.

James Jones signs with the Chargers

Ian Rapoport reports that the San Diego Chargers have signed WR James Jones. Jones looks to be the replacement for WR Stevie Johnson who suffered a torn meniscus. James played last season with the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Impact

While Jones had a decent year last year, I don’t think he has much value this year. Keenan Allen and Travis Benjamin are clearly ahead of him on the depth chart and I would expect TEs Antonio Gates and Hunter Henry and RB Danny Woodhead to get more looks in the passing game than Jones. I would leave Jones on the waiver wire.

James Jones visiting Chargers on Tuesday

After Stevie Johnson was diagnosed with a torn meniscus, it left the Chargers number three wideout spot up for grabs between Tyrrell William, Jevontee Herndon, and Dontrelle Inman. It looks like the team wants to explore all options as they are bringing in ex-Packers WR James Jones for a visit.

Fantasy Impact

Jones has actually been a solid quiet contributor in fantasy leagues throughout his career. His silent stats in 2015 included 890 yards and eight touchdowns. He particularly thrives in touchdown heavy formats as he is a reliable red zone threat. Jones will be worth monitoring if he signs in San Diego as they love to throw the ball.
