2013 Outlook: Bust (overvalued)

Last updated on Sep-07-2013 by Ben Standig

Update (9-7): A source tells Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk that Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones @jacoby_jones12 suffered a sprained MCL in his right knee during Thursday's loss to the Broncos, and he will miss four-to-six weeks. Jones suffered the injury when a teammate,Brynden Trawick, collided with him as he prepared to field a punt. Jones' right knee hyperextended and he didn't return to the game. Already a low-end receiver option at best, Jones can be released in all leagues where he's a pure WR option. For the second straight week, the TD scoring Marlon Brown is a waiver wire option.

Part of our fantasy football minicamp series involved whether Jacoby Jones is equipped to handle the starting spot opposite Torrey Smith now that Anquan Boldin will be catching passes in San Francisco. In a nutshell, no. The speedy Jones has ability and he used it to become a Pro Bowl returner last season, while catching 30 receptions for 406 yards and a touchdown. However, those passing numbers came as Baltimore's third receiver. When last we saw Jones in a starting role, a rather plum assignment opposite Andre Johnson with the Texans, he left everyone wanting more - and eventually had Houston showing him the door. Jones can deep and with Joe Flacco's arm strength, he makes for a compelling threat. For now he's the best bet to become the WR2 and with playing time comes opportunity. Still, he's yet to show he can handle the attention from defenses that comes with a starting role. Expect his name recognitiion to raise his draft value higher than future production. Becomes a touch more interesting in the final rounds, but even then there are other options with more WR4 upside.

2013 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2013 FFToolbox Staff Mock Draft #1
June 18th, 2013
14.05 FFToolbox - Brian Murphy - The battle to be the Ravens' No. 2 WR will persist through training camp. I have no idea if Jones will earn the gig, but he has the most experience among the group, and he was making plays all over the field when we last saw him play. I'll take any possible Week 1 starter in the 14th round of a draft.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #2
July 2nd 2013
16.01 KFFSC - Jacoby Jones made some big plays last season. He was also in the right place at the right time for some other plays. Either way Boldin has left town and Flacco isn't going to be throwing the ball any less. Jacoby Jones could really step up for Baltimore, but if he doesn't I think it will be because the Ravens throw more passes to both TEs.
