From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 15): Jones has the garbage time connection going with Derek Carr. While that is not the most reliable source of fantasy points, it has been a great play for Cecil Shorts among others in recent years. In another likely loss at New England, Jones could be worth a WR3/Flex play if Rod Streater's hip injury keeps him out.

Week 3: at New England Patriots

Mark and Joe say: Bad matchup. Derek Carr is the 18th-ranked fantasy quarterback in the NFL after two weeks, with 47/74 for 414 yards passing, three TD passes and two interceptions (and he leads the team in rushing with 5/57/0). James Jones has handled two of Carr's three TD throws (17 for 12/146/2 receiving), while Rod Streater (10 for 6/52/1) has recorded the other TD. Streater injured his hip flexor last weekend, though, and may be iffy to play in this game. Check's Players in the News for the latest on Streater's practice status as the weekend games approach. The Patriots allowed 19/36 for 163 net yards, one TD and four interceptions to Matt Cassel last week, while sacking him six times for -39 yards. To date, the Patriots are tied for fourth in the league with seven sack generated - Carr will be pressured up front in this game. To date, the Patriots are ranked fourth in the NFL averaging 166.0 net passing yards allowed per game, with three TDs handed over vs. five interceptions generated. This looks like a bad matchup for the Raiders' rookie signal caller.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 1 vs NYJ (3 / 3 / 34 / 1 rec)

Jones was the team's third wide receiver and largely ignored until garbage time. His only two catches in the first 57 minutes were caught behind the line of scrimmage. He did draw a pass interference on a deep target in the second half and made a spectacular catch on his touchdown. Jones high-pointed the jump ball from Carr, pulling it in with one hand and tip-toeing in the end zone before falling out of bounds.

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.
