WR - LV
Week 17 Outlook
Las Vegas Raiders WR Zay Jones caught four passes for 32 scoreless yards on Sunday in a 30-23 loss to the Buffalo Bills.
Jones' six targets in Week 4 were the third-highest on the team, though he couldn't find the end zone. Derek Carr will continue to feed Darren Waller and Hunter Renfrow, but Jones' snap count has increased week-over-week along with his target share over the past three weeks (he was inactive in Week 1). Jones will need an injury to propel him into fantasy relevance and shouldn't be a waiver target this week.
Zay Jones brought in all three of his targets for 32 yards in the Raiders' 36-20 loss to the Patriots Sunday.
Jones is a tertiary option in Las Vegas and does not merit fantasy consideration.
Zay Jones turned his only target into a 15-yard touchdown catch in the Raiders' 34-24 win over the Saints Monday night.
It was Jones' turn to frustrate fantasy owners this week by scoring on his only look. Despite the score owners should stay away.
Zay Jones has been impressing management and the coaching staff during the Raiders' training camp. In a statement about Zay Jones and fellow receiver Nelson Agholor, Raiders GM Mike Mayock stated that the "coaches have a plan for those guys. It starts with those two guys and you say, wow".
After the injury to starting receiver Tyrell Williams, the Raiders need another receiver to step up and it seems like Jones may have that opportunity. Jones has some experience with the Raiders, as he joined the team last October. This may be enough to earn some trust from quarterback Derek Carr. Jones is not yet a player to target in fantasy, but his stock is worth monitoring as fantasy drafts approach.
Zay Jones brought in both of his targets for 21 yards in the Raiders' 16-15 loss to the Broncos Sunday.
Jones has seen little action this season and is not relevant in fantasy.
