Footballguys view: There was some anticipation that Jones could play a large role for the Raiders coming out of the bye, but even with their injuries at wide receiver, there's no spot for him on the gameday 46.

  Bills | Andre Roberts working with first team    Tue Aug 6, 02:22 AM

Buffalo Bills WR Andre Roberts has been consistently rotated in with the first-team offense along with WRs Cole Beasley, John Brown, Robert Foster and Zay Jones. 'He's done a good job,' head coach Sean McDermott said. 'We've had some injuries there so he is very willingly stepped up and shown what he has.'

Footballguys view: Roberts is a seasoned veteran who mostly stands out with his play on special teams. He's not much of a fantasy factor with that role, but it is interesting to see him get first-team work as a wide receiver.

  Bills | Zay Jones running with the starters    Fri Jul 26, 10:22 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones has worked 'almost exclusively' with the first-team offense during training camp, according to Mark Gaughan of The Buffalo News.

Footballguys view: No surprise here...Jones is a starter. The Bills revamped their WR corps this offseason, adding guys like Cole Beasley and John Brown in free agency. We'll be watching in training camp to see who wins the job opposite Jones for the 2019 season.

  Bills | Four Bills WRs should be ready for camp    Sat Jul 13, 01:42 PM

Buffalo Bills WRs John Brown (personal), Cole Beasley (core), Zay Jones (undisclosed) and Robert Foster (undisclosed) all missed some offseason workouts but all four are expected to be ready for the start of training camp.

Footballguys view: The Bills revamped their WR corps this offseason through the draft and free agency. Jones is the top receiver, but the pecking order behind him needs to be established. Beasley can work underneath as a slot receiver, so we'll see if Brown or Foster can win the deep threat job in 2019.

  Bills | Zay Jones can play in slot    Sun Feb 17, 04:52 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones has the ability to be a slot receiver and played the position during his college career, in the opinion of BuffaloBills.com's Chris Brown.

Footballguys view: Jones finished the year with 56 catches and 25 of those came from the slot. He ranked 42nd in the league in 2018 with 316 receiving yards from the slot position. Jones can do that and in fact could be a consistent chain-mover for the Bills offense in that role. We'll see what the Bills have in store for Jones in 2019.

Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones had five of his seven touchdowns over the final five games of 2018, and he topped 60 yards three times in that span after topping 60 yards just twice through the first 11 games.

Footballguys view: Jones had three touchdowns over the last two weeks of the 2018 season. He seemed to establish better chemistry with QB Josh Allen as the year went on. We'll see if Jones can carry that over into 2019.

Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones finished with six receptions, 93 yards and two touchdowns on nine targets in the Week 17 game against the Miami Dolphins. He ended up with five touchdowns over his final five outings.

  Bills | Zay Jones quiet in Week 14    Sun Dec 9, 06:09 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones caught three passes for 22 yards against the New York Jets in Week 14.

Footballguys view: Jones was a dud this week as Robert Foster and Isaiah McKenzie were more productive for Josh Allen. He was working his way into our circle of trust, but took a big step back this week and won't be a top what the heck flex against Detroit next week.

  Bills | Zay Jones ready for contact    Mon Aug 13, 12:51 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones (knee) fully participated in practice Monday, Aug. 13, and was no longer wearing a non-contact jersey.

Footballguys view: Jones is now competing to be the no3 wide receiver for the Bills. With the addition of Corey Coleman (via trade from the Browns), Jones gets bumped down the depth chart.

  Bills | Zay Jones making progress    Sat Aug 11, 12:21 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones (knee) participated in team drills during practice Friday, Aug. 10, but was still wearing a non-contact jersey.

Footballguys view: The Bills made a move to acquire Corey Coleman from the Browns and he should be in line for the no.2 job opposite of Kelvin Benjamin. When healthy, Jones should push for the no.3 spot. Last year was a disappointment and Jones rookie season had some off-field weirdness as well. We're not expecting much from him in re-draft formats and his dynasty stock doesn't hold much value either.

  Bills | Zay Jones, Corey Coleman ruled out    Thu Aug 9, 06:28 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones and WR Corey Coleman will not play in the first preseason game Thursday, Aug. 9.

Footballguys view: Coleman probably hasn't had enough time to absorb the playbook and Jones is still recovering from offseason surgery. We are excited about Coleman, though less than we would on a pass happy offense versus this ground and pound one.

  Bills | Zay Jones on the mend    Sat Aug 4, 10:23 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones (knee) is 'progressing nicely' but doesn't have an exact timetable for his return, according to head coach Sean McDermott.

Footballguys view: Jones was coming on before his injury last year, and then followed with an offseason that including a puzzling incident and his offense taking a big step back at quarterback and on the offensive line. He's not a preferred late round sleeper.

  Bills | Zay Jones to be limited early    Tue Jul 31, 02:32 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones (knee) will be eased back into practice once he is activated from the Active/Non-Football Injury list, according to head coach Sean McDermott.

Footballguys view: A second-round pick out of East Carolina in 2017, Jones had a horrible rookie season with just 27 catches (on 74 targets) as a rookie. He's hoping for a bounce-back year in 2018 but Jones is going to attempt to do that coming back from offseason knee surgery. We're not interested in him for redraft leagues and even Fantasy GMs in dynasty leagues are not hot on Jones stock.

  Bills | Zay Jones not guaranteed a starting job    Sun Jun 17, 03:51 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones will have to 'earn his way' and 'not necessarily go right to the top of the line' after a mostly disappointing rookie season, according to general manager Brandon Beane.

Footballguys view: Jones has disappointed the Bills after a rookie season where he hauled in just 27 passes for 316 yards and two touchdowns. Then, there was his offseason....let's just say it's been an interesting time away from the game for Jones. Oh yeah, he's also still recovering from a knee injury suffered last year and hasn't been participating in OTAs this year. That being said, there's not many quality pass catchers with the Bills so there's an opportunity for Jones.

  Bills | Zay Jones ready for camp?    Thu Jun 14, 12:32 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones (shoulder, knee) could be healthy enough for training camp as head coach Sean McDermott said he has 'no reason not to believe' Jones won't be ready.

Footballguys view: They need him to be, as there aren't a lot of good options on the roster beyond him and Kelvin Benjamin. Jones is a solid route runner when healthy, but the question mark under center and the ones on the offensive line are bigger concerns. We're staying away.

  Bills | Zay Jones has surgery    Thu May 24, 10:46 AM

Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones (knee) had knee surgery Thursday, May 24, and will miss the remainder of the offseason program.

Footballguys view: That's not great, especially with new quarterbacks he needs to get used to. The team better hope Kelvin Benjamin steps up this year because there is precious little there to work with, for either A.J. McCarron or Josh Allen.

Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones is in a satisfactory position within the Bill's organization, according to head coach Sean McDermott.

Footballguys view: Jones, the FBS all-time leading receiver, had a rough rookie season highlighted by too many drops. Perhaps this injury kept him from playing like most expected coming out of East Carolina.

Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones (shoulder) is scheduled to undergo surgery Tuesday, Jan. 16, to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder that he played with for the majority of the season, according to his father.

Footballguys view: Jones had a disappointing rookie season despite ample opportunities for a large role in a weak Bills wide receiver corps. 2018 will be crucial for his development, but Jones will be in an offense is under construction.

  Bills | Zay Jones finishes with 20 yards    Sun Jan 7, 04:55 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones caught two passes for 20 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars in the Wild Card playoff game Sunday, Jan. 7.

Footballguys view: Jones had a drop (surprise, surprise) late in the game when the Bills were desperately trying to drive down for a touchdown. The rookie is the FBS all-time leader in receptions but he finishes his rookie year with pedestrian numbers and concerns about his concentration and ability to get open at the pro level.
