2020 RTSports Outlook

Jones was traded to the Raiders last year, getting off to a slow start with the Bills once again. Jones had seven receptions for 69 yards in five games with the Bills. His numbers weren't much better with the Raiders, though, catching 20 passes for 147 yards in 10 games. He did not score a touchdown all season. Jones has just once decent season under his belt, failing to live up to his second-round draft status. He will try to earn a bigger role this year with the Raiders, but is likely No. 3, 4 or 5 on the depth chart. Jones is a big receiver with plus hands. He isn't afraid to make the tough catch and his athleticism allows him to make catches others can't. He lacks a little strength and remains a bit raw. Consistency has been an issue to start his career.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Jones is trending the wrong way. He could rebound some this year but being a top fantasy receiver is not expected. He should be pretty ho hum in his current role in this offense. He could get around 45 receptions for 500 yards with a few scores.

RotoBaller's Outlook

With almost no competition in the wide receiver room last year, sophomore Zay Jones became the top dog in the Bills' modest passing attack, posting a 56-652-7 line over 16 games. While it was encouraging to see Jones break out to some degree, with the additions of Cole Beasley and John Brown (and potentially rookie tight end Dawson Knox) Jones may find it more difficult to match his numbers from last season. Beasley will occupy the slot and Brown will act as the primary deep threat, and with Buffalo's run-heavy offense it will be difficult for Jones to get enough targets to make a significant fantasy impact. Jones claims that he is "bigger and stronger" this year, so it's possible he could act as the primary end zone threat to salvage some weekly flex value.

Player Notes
May 14 2:10pm ET

Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Zay Jones was given starter snaps immediately after the team traded for him in the middle of last season. However, Jones will just be fighting to make the final roster this summer after the team drafted Henry Ruggs III and Bryan Edwards at the position. They also added Nelson Agholor in free agency, so Jones will be battling it out with Agholor, Keelan Doss and Marcell Ateman for one or two openings. The 25-year-old caught 20 passes for 147 yards and no touchdowns in 10 games (seven starts) for the Raiders last season. He can be ignored for fantasy purposes in a much deeper wide receiver room in Las Vegas.
