Zay Jones returns to practice

Buffalo Bills beat writer Chris Brown is reporting wide receiver Zay Jones (knee) returned to practice Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

Jones, who suffered a knee injury at the early portion of OTAs in May, returned to practice Thursday. Barring a setback, the rookie receiver is expected to be a full-go for mandatory minicamp and training camp. He is in line to start opposite Sammy Watkins in 2017, but his role could be contested if the Bills move forward and sign free agent wideout Jeremy Maclin.

Zay Jones suffers knee injury

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Buffalo Bills wide receiver Zay Jones (knee) suffered a sprained knee Tuesday and is expected to "miss some time" as a result.

Fantasy Impact

Jones, the 37th overall pick in April's draft, is considered "week-to-week" with a knee injury suffered at Tuesday's minicamp. Although he will miss time, it is too early to tell how much and if he indeed suffer a sprain or worse. The rookie wideout is expected to open the 2017 season as Buffalo's No. 2 receiver behind the oft-injured Sammy Watkins.

Zay Jones could make an 'immediate impact' in 2017

Buffalo Bills beat writer Mike Rodak believes wide receiver Zay Jones could make an "immediate impact" in 2017.

Fantasy Impact

Jones, Buffalo's second-round pick in April's draft, will likely enter the upcoming season as the Bills' No. 2 receiver behind Sammy Watkins. However, because Watkins has a lengthy injury history in his short tenure in the NFL, Jones could be leaned on heavily, especially if Watkins is sidelined for any amount of time. Despite Jones' second round status, he is entering a welcoming situation, perhaps, the best amongst rookie wideouts from a fantasy perspective. I'd target Jones as the No. 4 rookie wideout to own in the upcoming fantasy football campaign, whose stock is rising fast.

Zay Jones selected by Buffalo Bills with No. 37 pick

The Bills traded up to the No. 37 pick in order to draft wide receiver Zay Jones.

Fantasy Impact

This one is a bit odd, as Jones wasn't projected to be such an early Day 2 pick. For some reason, the Bills felt the need to move up in order to acquire him. He produced video game numbers in his final college year, though he did so on massive volume. Either way, he's being brought in to be the No. 2 opposite Sammy Watkins. The Bills don't pass enough in order to justify drafting him in season-long leagues, but he could be a waiver wire addition if him and Tyrod Taylor develop chemistry. If this pick does anything from a fantasy standpoint, it increases Taylor's value, and gives Watkins a threat on the other side of the field.
