Zay Jones caught 4-of-7 targets for 68 yards in the Bills' Week 11 loss to the Chargers.
Jones was the default No. 1 receiver after Jordan Matthews (knee) was inactive and Kelvin Benjamin injured his knee on the opening drive. Jones will be on the WR4 map next week against the Chiefs if Benjamin and Matthews can't play. It'll likely be Tyrod Taylor back under center for that one next Sunday. Nov 19 - 7:58 PM

Zay Jones (knee) wasn't listed on the Bills' final injury report for Week 11 against the Chargers.

He's good to go after getting in a full week of practice. Jones was having his best game of the season before he hurt his knee against the Jets in Week 9. He doesn't carry much fantasy appeal now that Kelvin Benjamin has taken over the lead role in Buffalo's receiving corps. Having Nathan Peterman under center this week won't help matters.

Zay Jones (knee) was a full participant at Thursday's practice.

It is his second practice in a row, putting him on track to return this week against the Chargers. Jones had his best game as a pro in Week 9, but he is someone to avoid with Kelvin Benjamin taking over No. 1 duties.

Zay Jones (knee) returned to practice Wednesday.

He missed last week after having his best game as a pro in Week 9 against the Jets with a 6-53-1 line. With Kelvin Benjamin at the X, Jordan Matthews in the slot, and both LeSean McCoy and Charles Clay healthy, Jones will be fighting for scraps as the Z receiver with Nathan Peterman at QB.
Nov 15 - 12:17 PM

Zay Jones (knee) is out for Week 10 against the Saints.

LT Cordy Glenn (foot, ankle) is also out for Sunday. Jones was able to play through the issue last Thursday, running on pure adrenaline, but he hasn't practiced at all this week. Kelvin Benjamin will man the X spot, while Andre Holmes, Deonte Thompson, and Jordan Matthews figure out the rest.
Nov 10 - 10:11 AM

Zay Jones (knee) did not practice Thursday.

Jones was able to fight through the injury during last week's game, but it looks like it will force him to sit this week. It is a disappointment after Jones had easily his best game as a pro last Thursday.

Zay Jones (knee) is not practicing Wednesday.

Jones hurt his knee midway through last Thursday night's loss to the Jets but was able to return and have easily his best game as a pro, posting a 6-53-1 line. With Jones trending toward out, Deonte Thompson may continue to have a role. Kelvin Benjamin is also expected to make his debut this week.
Nov 8 - 9:58 AM

Zay Jones (knee) did not practice Monday.

Jones suffered a knee injury on Thursday night against the Jets in the midst of his best game as a pro. Coach Sean McDermott called him day-to-day and said he has "made some progress" and is "moving in the right direction." Considering he was able to play through the injury most of the game, Jones has a decent shot to suit up this week, but his practice participation will tell the story.

Zay Jones caught 6-of-7 targets for 53 yards and a touchdown in the Bills' Week 9 loss to the Jets, but didn't finish the game with a knee tweak.

Jones suffered a brutal looking knee injury in the first half, but miraculously managed to check back in after the break. He didn't appear noticeably hobbled, but came up lame again in the fourth quarter. He was declared questionable, but didn't return with the game well in hand. 4/40/1 of Jones' production came before the injury, which might have been a hyperextension. Jones was running excellent routes in what was easily his best effort of the year. The catches and yards were both new season highs, while the touchdown was his first. He made Justin Burris look silly on his score. Jones would likely had a second TD had Buster Skrine not (intentionally?) tripped him on the play that injured him. Jones has 10 days to get healthy for a matchup with the Saints.

Zay Jones (leg) returned for the second half of Thursday's game against the Jets.

It's a bit of a miracle, as Jones' injury looked extremely ugly on first glance. Perhaps it was a hyperextension. Whatever it was, Jones will be out for the final 30 minutes of Thursday's game.
Nov 2 - 10:07 PM

Bills WR Zay Jones was forced from Thursday's game against the Jets with a right leg injury.

Potentially on his way to a long touchdown, Jones got tripped up by Buster Skrine, perhaps intentionally. As he attempted to find his footing, his right leg landed in awkward, ugly fashion. He remained down on the field for several moments before gingerly walking to the sideline, with assistance. It had the looks of a potentially serious injury, though Jones was spotted trying to jog it out on the sideline. It comes on a night where Jones had already set new season highs across the board, catching 4-of-4 targets for 40 yards and a score. Running an excellent route, Jones gave the slip to CB Justin Burris on his 10-yard touchdown.
Nov 2 - 9:41 PM

Zay Jones caught 3-of-5 targets for 32 yards in the Bills' Week 8 win over the Raiders.

Jones was hot early with all of his 32 yards in the first half, but Tyrod Taylor wound up throwing for only 165 yards. While Jones is not yet a realistic fantasy option, we would consider this game a step forward for him in real life. He remains a hold in Dynasty leagues. The Bills visit the Jets next.
Oct 29 - 4:28 PM

Tyrod Taylor said he has not lost confidence in rookie WR Zay Jones.

Jones has caught just 21.9 percent of his targets so far this season, easily the lowest catch rate among receivers with at least 20 targets, but Taylor has continued to throw him the ball. Perhaps that changes with Jordan Matthews (thumb) getting healthier and Deonte Thompson going for 107 yards last week, but Jones looks like he will keep his place in the starting lineup for now. Even so, he is not a fantasy option.

Oct 26 - 9:36 AM

Zay Jones caught 2-of-9 targets for 17 yards in the Bills' Week 7 win over the Bucs.

He's "up" to 83 scoreless yards on 28 targets for the season. Tyrod Taylor keeps targeting Jones downfield despite his inability to separate and the duo's obvious lack of an on-field rapport. Even against a burnable Raiders secondary, Jones won't be a fantasy option in Week 8.
Oct 22 - 4:58 PM

Zay Jones caught 1-of-6 targets for nine yards in Week 5 against the Bengals.

Even with Jordan Matthews sidelined and Charles Clay leaving with a knee injury, Jones continued to be a non-factor. Despite starting every game, Jones has just five catches.
