2014 Outlook: Bye Week Fill-in

Last updated on Jul-11-2014 by Larry Goldstein

James Jones is another fresh face in Oakland and comes to camp as the receiver with the most complete body of work. The former Green Bay receiver figures to be the No. 1 option for Matt Schaub on a team that has several talented, yet underachieving receivers. Jones leaves the comfort of being on the receiving-end of Aaron Rodgers' throws his entire career and joins an offense searching for an identity. Jones brings a knack for winning single coverage battles and displayed improvement on dropped balls that plagued the early years of his career. The eight-year pro has battled inconsistencies throughout his time in Green Bay, but much of that can be contributed to the wealth of options available in the Packers' offense. Jones is not getting much love in fantasy drafts, which is reflected in his 151.67 ADP as the WR63 off the board. Merely matching his three-year averages of 54 receptions, 745 receiving yards and eight TDs makes him a solid roster stash with upside (if the Raiders find decency and consistency out of the QB position).

6.10 Gridiron Experts - All set at TE, QB and RB, so it's time to see if I can salvage anybody at wide receiver. Lucky for me, the guy who led the NFL in receiving touchdowns is still available here at the back of round six. Jones should remain one of Aaron Rodgers' preferred red zone targets and is a good bet to score 8+ touchdowns again. He's more of a WR2 on a good fantasy team, but in this case, he's promoted to WR1.

6.02 World Fantasy Rankings #4 - James Jones has always made me nervous and has not been consistent in the past. I like consistency. This year will be different and with Greg Jennings gone and two other good weapons in Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb getting most of the attention. James Jones has taken football a lot more seriously the last couple years and when Aaron Rodgers mentions players specifically in the off season, it normally bodes very well. I like double digit TD's, especially from my third WR.
