From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 29): We hesitate to use the word "consistent" with "garbage time value", but Jones is the #1 receiver in this offense for as long as Rod Streater is out, and he is still playing at a high level entering the Week 5 bye.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 2 vs HOU (14 / 9 / 112 / 1 rec)

Once again James Jones scored a garbage time touchdown, but unlike last week he had some good moments before that as well. Jones also had a bad drop and fumbled twice on the same play. One the second miscue, Jones made a nice grab on the right sideline for a 26 yard gain but had the ball jarred lose. He picked up the fumble and raced to the Texans 13 yard line before having it stripped again, and lost possession. Like Week 1, Jones' touchdown came on a jump ball late in the game and he again out-jumped the corner to make a contested catch. Jones was the most reliable of Carr's targets despite the miscue and led the team in targets, catches, and receptions.

2014 Week 3 vs NE (5 / 3 / 43 / 0 rec)

Jones was silent in the first half but got involved late in the game and made some big plays. He picked up a 3rd and 3 with his first reception then made a nice catch in traffic just short of the marker on 3rd and long. He showed great timing with Carr on a back shoulder fade for a gain of 18 yards at the 2 minute warning. For the third week in a row he saw a target on a jump ball late and nearly came down with an amazing catch.

2014 Week 4 vs MIA (6 / 6 / 83 / 0 rec)

Jones started the game with an incredible diving one-handed catch for a 30 yard gain down the right sideline. For most of the next three quarters he worked within a couple yards of the line of scrimmage, and then padded his stats in garbage time. Jones' 29 yard reception in the 4th quarter was a deep hitch that he broke three tackles on to turn into a big play.
