Zay Jones to miss rest of offseason program after knee surgery

Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott announced that wide receiver Zay Jones underwent knee surgery and will miss the remainder of the offseason program, NFL insider Adam Schefter reported on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

It has not been a great offseason for Jones as he attempts to move past a disappointing rookie season that saw him catch 27 passes for 316 yards and two touchdowns. It is worth noting that he played with a torn labrum, which he had surgery to repair in January. He was arrested for felony vandalism back in March, though he ended up not being charged in the incident. Now, he will have to attempt to work his way back from knee surgery.

Zay Jones' rookie season ends with a whimper

Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones found little room with which to make an impact in his team's Wild Card Playoff loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Jones made two receptions on four targets for just 20 yards in the contest.

Fantasy Impact

Jones was not the only one held in check in this game - neither team was able to register much fantasy production on offense, as the defenses dominated the afternoon. Jones entered the 2017 with a certain amount of optimistic expectation, due to his combination of talent and opportunity. Based on those expectations, it's hard to view Jones' season as anything but a disappointment. The good news is he's still young, still skilled, and now has a year of experience under his belt from which to learn. His prospects entering his second season will be contingent upon the changes likely to come for the rest of the Bills offensive personnel. Depending on how those changes manifest themselves, Jones could be something of a value pick in drafts heading into 2018.

Zay Jones comes up empty for second straight week

Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones posted an empty line on the stat sheet for a second consecutive game in his team's week 15 home victory over the Miami Dolphins. He was targeted twice in the contest, but did not register a reception.

Fantasy Impact

As disappointing as Jones' season has been thus far, these past two games have represented rock bottom. The rookie has the talent to offer hope for better days ahead, but he can be completely disregarded in fantasy at this time.

Zay Jones posts a goose egg in the snow

Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones, who leads the team in targets on the season, was not listed in the box score in their week 14 overtime victory over the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Impact

Some of this can be chalked up to the conditions, as much of the game was played in heavy snow and low visibility, which stifled the passing offenses of both teams. Despite his high target share this season, Jones' production has been underwhelming in what has been an been a below average passing offense, one which doesn't project to be improved by the likelihood of further volatility at the QB position in the next couple of weeks. Owners would be well served to seek other options for their lineups/rosters.

Zay Jones bottled up by Patriots

Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones was unable to sustain his recent uptick in productivity in his team's week 13 loss to the New England Patriots. Jones finished the contest with just two receptions for 22 yards.

Fantasy Impact

The fact that Jones' meager yardage total actually led the team should tell you everything you need to know about how this game went, as well as the prospects for Jones as a fantasy contributor. The entire Bills passing offense is in disarray right now, and it's hard to imagine any scenario where you'd consider using Jones as a starter in your fantasy playoffs. Stay away.
