Green Bay Packers WR James Jones (hamstring) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 8.
Fantasy Tip: James ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) has a chance to play in Week 5 against the St. Louis Rams, but owners will know more about his status later in the week. Jones has had a big impact in the Packers offense this season and should be a solid starting option if he is active for the game.
Wed, 07 Oct 2015 15:34:38 -0700
Green Bay Packers WRs Randall Cobb (shoulder) and James Jones (hamstring) were both limited participants in practice Wednesday, Oct. 7.
Fantasy Tip: Both Cobb ($7,600, 15.2% of cap) and Jones ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) should be fine for this weekend against the St. Louis Rams and both receivers have been great for their fantasy owners. With Aaron Rodgers at the top of his game and receiver Davante Adams still hurt, Cobb and Jones should both once again be popular daily picks in Week 5.
Sun, 04 Oct 2015 20:02:08 -0700
Green Bay Packers WR James Jones had five catches for 96 yards in a 17-3 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 4.
Fantasy Tip: Jones ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) failed to find the end zone for the first time this year, but he did lead the team in receiving. His knack for scoring touchdowns makes him a viable option at FantasyScore on a weekly basis, and he should be a great play as long as Davante Adams is sidelined.
Fri, 02 Oct 2015 19:07:42 -0700
Green Bay Packers WR James Jones face the San Francisco 49ers in Week 4, and the 49ers currently rank 26th in passing yards allowed.
Fantasy Tip: Jones ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) has looked right at home after joining Green Bay just before the start of the season, and with Davante Adams ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) unlikely to play, he should be a great option at FantasyScore in an expanded role against a friendly matchup.
Mon, 28 Sep 2015 21:52:47 -0700
Green Bay Packers WR James Jones hauled in seven receptions for a team-high 139 yards and a touchdown in the Week 3 game against the Kansas City Chiefs Monday, Sept. 28.
Fantasy Tip: Jones ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) has scored at least one touchdown in each of his three games in his second tour with the Packers. He is a must-have FantasyScore option at this mid-tier price, but if he keeps scoring the bargain won't last for long.
Sun, 20 Sep 2015 22:43:44 -0700
Green Bay Packers WR James Jones had a 29-yard touchdown in the Week 2 game against the Seattle Seahawks, and he had another overturned after review.
Fantasy Tip: Jones ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) has scored three touchdowns in the first two games to make him a solid low-end WR2 or flex FantasyScore option.
Sun, 13 Sep 2015 18:23:03 -0700
Green Bay Packers WR James Jones had four catches for 51 yards and two touchdowns in a 31-23 win over the Chicago Bears Sunday, Sept. 13.
Fantasy Tip: The former Packer was picked up just last week, but he still showed excellent chemistry with Aaron Rodgers ($8,800, 17.6% of cap), especially in the red zone. Jones is worth a waiver claim in seasonal leagues, and he could be worth a look at FantasyScore in Week 2 depending on his price tag.
Tue, 08 Sep 2015 16:41:47 -0700
Green Bay Packers WR James Jones is listed ahead of WR Jeff Janis on the Packers' depth chart.
Fantasy Tip: That didn't take long. Jones' familiarity with Green Bay's offense and his connection with QB Aaron Rodgers obviously give him an advantage and help him make up for lost time. Randall Cobb and Davante Adams will still be the top two options in the passing game, and Ty Montgomery will also have a role, but Jones might be worth a waiver wire pickup.
Mon, 07 Sep 2015 13:29:54 -0700
Free-agent WR James Jones (Giants) officially signed with the Green Bay Packers Monday, Sept. 7.
Fantasy Tip: Jones' role with the Packers is still unclear. Randall Cobb and Davante Adams are still expected to be the top two wide receivers. Stay away from Jones for now.
Sun, 06 Sep 2015 18:24:46 -0700
Free-agent WR James Jones (Giants) has agreed to a deal to return to the Green Bay Packers Sunday, Sept. 6, according to a source. The transaction won't be announced until Monday, Sept. 7, when the Packers make room on their 53-man roster.
Fantasy Tip: Given his extensive history with Green Bay, Jones should be able to integrate back into the offense quickly. He caught 24 touchdowns over his final three seasons with the Packers, and his red-zone production makes him worth a speculative stash.
Sun, 06 Sep 2015 11:36:57 -0700
Free-agent WR James Jones (Giants) has had talks with the Green Bay Packers but no deal is been reached at this point, according to a source.
Fantasy Tip: Jones played for the Packers a few years ago and should be familiar with the offense. He could be used as a No. 3 or 4 receiver if he joins the Packers and could be a waiver wire option if he plays well early in the season.
Sat, 05 Sep 2015 07:27:24 -0700
New York Giants WR James Jones was released Saturday, Sept. 5, according to a source.
Wed, 05 Aug 2015 13:03:29 -0700

Mon, 04 May 2015 05:17:29 -0700
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.
Mon, 10 Nov 2014 12:03:22 -0800
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.
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.
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.
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.
Thu, 19 Jun 2014 16:56:47 -0700

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.
Mon, 17 Mar 2014 16:27:41 -0700
Oakland Raiders WR James Jones will make $11.3 million as part of his three-year deal with the team.
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.

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.

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.

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.
