News you need to know

From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Dec 15): None of us are above accepting garbage time points, so it's time to look at James Jones again if you need help. The Buffalo defense is the toughest in the AFC right now, but Jones was able to scratch out a garbage time score last week when the Chiefs weren't letting them do anything they wanted to do for most of the game.

Week 16: vs Buffalo Bills

Mark and Joe say: Bad matchup. Derek Carr posted 27/56 for 202 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions thrown during the game at Kansas City last week. Andre Holmes (12 targets for 5/70/0 receiving) led the team in receiving last week, while James Jones (11 for 8/57/1) and Mychal Rivera (12 for 7/39/0) were all three into double-digits territory regarding targets during Week 14. Even with nearly sixty passes attempted, Carr remained close to 200 yards passing during the game - the Raiders aren't throwing down the field much while Tony Sparano is the head coach. The Bill's pass D is fifth in the league averaging 210.1 yards allowed per game, with 14 TDs given up balanced by 19 interceptions (second in the NFL) and 49 sacks generated (first in the NFL). This is one of the best all-around pass defenses in the NFL, folks. They limited Aaron Rodgers to 17/42 for 175 net yards, zero TDs and two interceptions thrown, with one sack taken for -10 yards. This is an impressive group that tastes blood in the air - it's hard to move the football against the Bills' secondary. This looks like a bad matchup for the Oakland offense.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 13 vs STL (8 / 6 / 33 / 0 rec)

Jones was the underneath target for much of the game and frustratingly came up just short of the marker on more than one third down grab. Jones ran underneath soft coverage for receptions on dig routes, crossing routes and short outs. He beat the first man there on multiple occasions but his lack of burst gave plenty of defenders a chance to apprehend him before he could pick up good yardage.

2014 Week 14 vs SF (2 / 2 / 11 / 0 rec)

Jones day was frustrating, as most of the targets went to Marcel Reece or Mychal Rivera. He has no luck breaking tackles in the open field on his two short receptions.

2014 Week 15 vs KC (11 / 8 / 57 / 1 rec)

Jones had a relatively quiet first half and the several uncharacteristic drops in the second. Early in the third quarter Jones dropped a soft pass that was slightly underthrown from Carr in the end zone. He didn't see another target until then 4th quarter when he dropped at least three catchable balls. He bounced back with 8:19 remaining and did an excellent job coming back to get a back shoulder throw from Carr for a 22 yard gain. Jones' touchdown came with 37 seconds left from the 1 yard line. He ran a quick flare route and Carr zipped a pass to him. Jones held on for an easy, meaningless score.
