Raiders | Andre Holmes moving up the depth chart

Mon, 04 Aug 2014 20:48:09 -0700

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.

Raiders | James Jones not listed as starter

Mon, 04 Aug 2014 15:19:47 -0700

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.

Raiders | James Jones showing his physicality

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 17:24:19 -0700

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.

Raiders | Brice Butler's spot in jeopardy

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.

Raiders | James Jones agrees to terms

Mon, 17 Mar 2014 14:46:58 -0700

The Oakland Raiders have agreed to terms with free-agent WR James Jones (Packers) on a three-year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Jones probably will be one of the starting receivers for the team next season, but the question at quarterback likely will hurt his value. Owners should consider Jones a No. 3 or No. 4 wide receiver entering drafts next season.

The New York Giants could target either WR Golden Tate (Seahawks) or WR James Jones (Packers) in free agency should they get there, in the opinion of Dan Graziano of ESPN New York. Graziano points out that offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo being with the team could help if the team tries to sign Jones.

Packers | James Jones ready to test free-agent market

Tue, 07 Jan 2014 11:03:23 -0800

Green Bay Packers WR James Jones is excited about the prospect of testing free agency again this offseason. "People know what I can do. I'm excited about it," Jones said. "Like I said, I would love to come back. A-Rod's my guy. We've got a great group of receivers and would love to come back and play with those dudes. I've been here for seven years, it's not like I've only been here for three years and now I'm a free agent. Shoot, I dang near spent my whole career here, so I would love to finish here." Jones improved on his dropped passes in his last three seasons and had a career-high 817 receiving yards in 14 games this year.

Packers | James Jones to play

Mon, 04 Nov 2013 16:02:58 -0800

Green Bay Packers WR James Jones (knee) is active for the team's Week 9 game.

Fantasy Tip: Jones should start if owners have the chance to use him this week. His availability likely will cut into Jarrett Boykin's targets, but Boykin should still be in starting lineups.

Sun, 03 Nov 2013 08:48:52 -0800

The Green Bay Packers believe WR James Jones (knee) will be able to play in their Week 9 game.

Packers | James Jones questionable

Sat, 02 Nov 2013 16:29:13 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR James Jones (knee) was limited during practice Saturday, Nov, 2, and is listed as questionable for Week 9.

Fantasy Tip: There appears to be a chance that Jones will be able to play this week, but owners will have to check the inactive list before the game. Since the team plays Monday, owners likely have better options at the position that will play. Jones probably would be a risky start for owners thinking of playing him.

Green Bay Packers WR James Jones (knee) was listed as a limited participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 31, and hasn't practiced in full since spraining his left knee Oct. 13.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Jones may have a tough time making it back for the Week 9 game against the Chicago Bears Monday night. It'd be extremely risky to leave him in your starting lineup. Jarrett Boykin remains a nice flex option with Jones out.

Packers | Jarrett Boykin bursts onto scene

Sun, 20 Oct 2013 16:41:06 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jarrett Boykin posted 103 receiving yards in the Week 7 game against the Cleveland Browns. He entered the game with just 70 career receiving yards, but saw plenty of action with injuries to WRs Randall Cobb (leg) and James Jones (knee) inactive.

Fantasy Tip: Boykin should continue to be in the mix for targets in the Green Bay offense, especially with TE Jermichael Finley (head) also leaving the game Sunday due to a head injury. Boykin is worth a look as a WR4 or flex play in most fantasy formats.

Packers | James Jones questionable

Fri, 18 Oct 2013 13:32:55 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR James Jones (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 18, and is listed as questionable for Week 7.

Fantasy Tip: Jones was not able to practice this week, so there is a good chance he sits out the game. If Jones is not able to play, Jarrett Boykin likely will have bigger role in the passing game and could be a flex option for fantasy owners. If Jones is able to play, he should not be considered more than a risky flex option because of the injury.

Packers | James Jones misses practice

Thu, 17 Oct 2013 15:00:23 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR James Jones (knee) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 17.

Fantasy Tip: A second straight day of missed practice for Jones doesn't bode well for his chances of suiting up in Week 7. Jarrett Boykin will be present in Green Bay's three-wide sets against the Cleveland Browns. He's more of a desperation play if your starting wideouts are either injured or on bye.

Packers | Will know James Jones' status later in week

Wed, 16 Oct 2013 11:41:30 -0700

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said the team will know WR James Jones' (knee) status for Week 7 by Friday, Oct. 18. McCarthy indicated Jones is very positive about his rehab.

Fantasy Tip: There's a good chance that Jones will be a game-time decision in Week 7 against the Cleveland Browns. Jermichael Finley will probably be the biggest beneficiary in the passing game, even if Jones suits up.

Packers | Jermichael Finley may be used as WR

Tue, 15 Oct 2013 15:30:25 -0700

Green Bay Packers TE Jermichael Finley may line up as a wide receiver starting in Week 7 against the Cleveland Browns with WR Randall Cobb (fibula) on the Injured Reserve and WR James Jones' (knee) availability in question.

Fantasy Tip: Cobb will be out until the final month of the season, so Finley's usage and targets will go up rather significantly, assuming Green Bay doesn't shift to a heavy run-centric game. Jarrett Boykin deserves consideration as a waiver wire addition; he'll be lined up often in the team's three-receiver sets without Cobb around.

Packers | Randall Cobb expected to miss several weeks

Mon, 14 Oct 2013 13:22:27 -0700

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said WR Randall Cobb (knee) will miss several weeks because of the knee injury he suffered Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: With Cobb missing time, Jarrett Boykin and Jermichael Finley likely will receive bigger roles in the passing game. Owners in deeper leagues could consider adding Boykin as a flex option. Finley was performing well before Cobb's injury, but now should be seen as a safe starting tight end option each week. James Jones could also see a bump in value depending on when he will be able to return from his injury.
