Oakland Raiders WR James Jones was released Sunday, May 3.
Fantasy Tip: Jones had a 73-666-6 season with Oakland last year and is still well worth a WR4 spot in PPR leagues when he lands on a new team.

Oakland Raiders WR James Jones gained just 20 yards on eight catches in Week 10 against the Denver Broncos. That's 2.5 yards per catch.
Fantasy Tip: The good news is that Jones was still productive in point-per-reception leagues. The bad news is that he wasn't productive in non-PPR leagues. While Jones does average about eight targets per game, he doesn't do enough with those targets to warrant being started on a week-to-week basis.

Oakland Raiders WR Andre Holmes was listed ahead of WR James Jones and WR Denarius Moore on the depth chart Monday Aug. 4.
Fantasy Tip: While nothing is set in stone yet, Holmes has been moving up the depth chart throughout the offseason. He is worth a late-round grab in fantasy drafts at this point.

Oakland Raiders WR James Jones is listed behind WR Andre Holmes at one of the wide receiver positions on the team's first depth chart.
Fantasy Tip: There is still a pretty good chance that Jones will be able to win one of the starting receiver jobs before the regular season begins. Jones should be considered as a No. 3 wide receiver in deeper leagues and a No. 4 receiver in shallow leagues.

Oakland Raiders WR James Jones has shown a knack for catching balls in heavy traffic during full team sessions, according to Jerry Mcdonald of The Oakland Tribune.
Fantasy Tip: Jones is expected to be one of the team's starting receivers this year, and if he continues to make plays in traffic, he could carve out a role as a go-to option in the red zone. The question marks surrounding the QB situation in Oakland hurt his value, but he is worth drafting in the later rounds as a bench option at the WR spot.

Oakland Raiders WR James Jones (undisclosed) worked on his routes and running off to the side with an athletic trainer at organized team activities Monday, June 9.
Sat, 24 May 2014 20:39:28 -0700
Oakland Raiders WR Brice Butler might have seen his chances at cracking the 53-man roster placed in serious jeopardy when the team brought in WR Greg Little. The team is likely to keep six receivers, with WRs James Jones, Denarius Moore, Rod Streater, Andre Holmes and Little as the top five.
Fantasy Tip: Butler's biggest competition for the No. 5 receiver job, and a potential job, is Little and Noel Grigsby. Even if he would crack the 53-man, his fantasy value is still negligible.
