2020 Fantasy Outlook
The Raiders' receiving corps became quite crowded in a heartbeat this offseason as the team added rookies Henry Ruggs, Bryan Edwards and Lynn Bowden within the first 100 overall picks of the draft, while also adding 2015 first-rounder Nelson Agholor in free agency. Jones is immediately pushed down to at least No. 6 on the WR depth chart, coming off a 10-game campaign with the Raiders in which he caught just 20 passes for 147 yards despite logging 466 offensive snaps.

First TD since 2018

September 22, 2020
Jones caught a 15-yard touchdown pass in Monday's 34-24 win over the Saints.
ANALYSIS
Jones only has one target through two games, but he made the most of it with a crucial touchdown toward the end of the second quarter. However, he played just 18 of 80 offensive snaps (22 percent), so he doesn't have dependable fantasy value.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
2017
With the Bills beefing up their receiving corps this offseason -- namely by adding John Brown and Cole Beasley -- there's been talk Jones' roster spot could be in jeopardy, though he did lead the team in receptions (56) and receiving yards (652) last season, while hauling in seven TDs. On the plus side, Jones seems to be getting the pro game down, not to mention he already has one season in the books with Josh Allen. The 24-year-old seems a lot closer to the No. 2 receiving spot than being a cut, though he'll probably have to fight off Robert Foster for looks in the offense, as Brown and Beasley seem set at two of the top three spots. In preparation for the coming season, Jones has reportedly added eight to 10 pounds of lean muscle mass to his upper body, which should help the 6-2, 200-pounder have a better chance of out-muscling defensive backs for the ball, which has at times been an issue for the 2017 second-rounder.
Jones had a disappointing rookie season in 2017. After leading the NCAA in receptions the previous year, he only hauled in 36.5 percent of his 74 targets in his first NFL campaign. There's still a high ceiling for Jones, but he didn't do much with his opportunities last year, and he'll have to move past the unusual off-field issues he went through during the offseason. He'll have a new quarterback and offensive coordinator, but he'll also have some tough competition for the No. 2 receiver job after the Bills traded for Corey Coleman in early August.
The Bills' second-round pick, Jones has an excellent chance for targets right out of the gate, especially with Anquan Boldin abruptly deciding to retire. Jordan Matthews is locked in as a contributor, but the depth chart is otherwise thin, leaving Jones as the likely No. 3 receiver. Jones could even push for the No. 1 outside role, as Matthews is best utilized out of the slot. While the Bills are a run-first team, they lack a designated third-down back or high-volume tight end. At 6-2, 201 with 4.45 40 speed, Jones is fast for a tall receiver and a strong route runner with good hands. He's not the home-run threat of the recently departed Sammy Watkins, but rather a more athletic (133-inch broad jump) possession complement than last year's version (Robert Woods). After notching 158 catches at East Carolina in 2016, Jones could make an immediate impact in a revamped receiving corps.
