News you need to know

From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 24): Jones is playing with some fire, and he's the closest thing there is to a "go-to receiver" in the Oakland offense. He's a desperation play, but sometimes we need them in the fantasy playoffs.

Week 13: at St. Louis Rams

Detailed matchup analysis coming soon.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 10 vs DEN (12 / 8 / 20 / 0 rec)

Jones was the featured receiver in the Raiders' offense but nearly everything was caught at or behind the line of scrimmage. He broke a tackle on his first reception and picked up 10 yards. That would be the longest catch of the day. Repeatedly he was thrown to the ground immediately after catching the ball within 2 yards of the line of scrimmage. Jones did make a couple of nice hands catches on short outs, but both went for less than 5 yards. He was targeted deep only once and overthrown.

2014 Week 11 vs SD (5 / 2 / 35 / 0 rec)

Jones didn't even see a target until the third quarter in quite a reversal from last week. He made a nice catch in tight coverage for a gain of 7 on that play then saw more action on the final drive. His 28 yard gain came on a deep post, where Jones went up high to snag the pass from Carr. He also saw a red zone target in the 4th quarter, but was well overthrown on a back shoulder fade.

2014 Week 12 vs KC (6 / 5 / 47 / 1 rec)

Jones first catch came on a stop route for gain of 8 to pick up a first down on the first drive. On the second drive he converted another third down by breaking a tackle on a short out for a gain of 11. Jones' 17 yard reception came on a deep post, with a good catch in traffic. That all paled in comparison to the brilliant double move he put on the Chiefs secondary to get open in the end zone for the game winning score. The Chiefs had assigned two defenders to Jones and he lost them both with one of the better routes you'll see.
