The Chargers have released WR James Jones. The 32-year-old hauled in 7 balls in 3 preseason outings but averaged just 9.9 yards per catch. His release is a vote of confidence for WR Tyrell Jones, who's locked in as San Diego's #3 WR. He's on the radar as a late-round flier.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Chargers WR Stevie Johnson will miss the entire season following surgery to repair a torn meniscus. San Diego already signed WR James Jones after Johnson's injury, but we're not much interested in him for fantasy purposes. Johnson's absence should mean more for players such as TEs Antonio Gates and Hunter Henry and RB Danny Woodhead.
The Chargers have signed WR James Jones, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's a sign that WR Stevie Johnson will miss significant time with the torn meniscus he suffered on Sunday. Jones is 32 but still had gas left in the tank last year, posting a 50-890-8 line in Green Bay. He caught 73 balls the previous season for the Raiders, although they went for just 666 yards (9.1 YPC). Jones is probably the favorite for the Chargers' #3 gig as long as Johnson is sidelined. He'll need to hold off Dontrelle Inman, Tyrell Williams and Javontee Herndon.
Packers WR Davante Adams (knee) is out for Saturday night's game against the Cardinals. His sprained MCL is likely a multi-week injury. Adams' absence leaves Randall Cobb, James Jones and Jared Abbrederis as Green Bay's top 3 WRs. Cobb and Jones figure to struggle getting open on the outside, making slot-man Abbrederis a sneaky fantasy play.
The forecast for today's Cowboys-Packers game calls for an 80% chance of rain with 11-14 mph winds. It's not quite enough for us to move any guys in this game in the Week 14 rankings, but use the weather as a tiebreaker. This could turn into a run-heavy game on both sides.
Packers WR James Jones was added to Thursday's injury report with a quad. He was listed as a limited participant. It's still unclear whether Jones injured the quad during practice or is just getting some mid-week rest. Check back tomorrow for an update.
Packers OC Tom Clements confirmed that WR Davante Adams (ankle) is expected back after the Week 7 bye. "Happy to have him back, obviously," Clements said Monday. "Davante has a lot of ability." The 2nd-year WR has been out since aggravating an ankle injury early in Week 3. He was already losing targets to WR James Jones then. We're expecting Adams to return as the #3 WR, although he's still capable of ascending back to the #2 spot.
Packers WR Davante Adams (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Chargers. He put in 3 limited practices this week but won’t return until he’s back to 100%. "At the very least I'll be set to go after the [Week 7] bye, but I'm not sure about this week,” Adams said Friday. Look for another game with James Jones as the #2 WR and Ty Montgomery as the #3.
Packers WR Davante Adams (ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the Rams. That again leaves James Jones as the clear #2 WR — and a WR2 in fantasy football. Rookie Ty Montgomery gets another game as the #3 WR.
The Packers on Saturday downgraded WR Davante Adams to doubtful. He has basically missed the past 2 games with his sprained ankle, seeing just 2 targets before leaving the Week 3 home win over Kansas City. His absence only raises the fantasy floor for WR James Jones and again makes WR Ty Montgomery an option for deeper leagues. TE Richard Rodgers also carries a bit more upside against the Rams on Sunday.
Packers WR Davante Adams (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Rams. He didn’t practice all week, though, and is not expected to play. James Jones and Ty Montgomery will again serve as Green Bay’s #2 and #3 WRs.
Packers WR Davante Adams (ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the 49ers. James Jones is locked in as the #2 WR and is a solid WR2 in fantasy lineups. Rookie Ty Montgomery figures to operate as the #3 WR and is an intriguing WR3 flier.
Packers WR Davante Adams (ankle) has been downgraded to doubtful. ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Adams won't play. That leaves James Jones as Green Bay's clear-cut #2 WR -- and a strong WR2 in fantasy football. Rookie Ty Montgomery figures to serve as the #3 WR and is a risk/reward WR3 in fantasy.
The Packers downgraded WR Davante Adams to doubtful late Saturday because of the left ankle sprain that limited him Monday night and had him in a walking boot this week. Green Bay also promoted WR Jared Abbrederis to the active roster. James Jones' fantasy-scoring floor rises with Adams out, and rookie WR Ty Montgomery adds some sleeper appeal -- especially in a positive passing matchup at San Francisco.
Packers WR Davante Adams (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers, despite not practicing all week. Insider Rob Demovsky believes the questionable tag is "optimistic." Adams needs to be on fantasy benches this week, especially with Packers-49ers not kicking off until 4:25 pm ET. Look for James Jones and Ty Montgomery to serve as the #2 and #3 WRs behind Randall Cobb.
Packers WR Davante Adams (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday and was spotted in a walking boot. "It got a little tweaked, but it's day to day, just getting it right," he said. "It's just pretty much to make sure that I'm taking care of it. It's preventative for the most part. I don't want to do anything worse to it." Adams seems extremely iffy to be ready for Sunday's game against the 49ers. That'd leave James Jones and Ty Montgomery as the #2 and #3 WRs behind Randall Cobb.
Packers WR Davante Adams (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. He reinjured his ankle early in Monday night's game against the Chiefs and never returned. Green Bay might opt to hold him out until he's back to 100%, especially with James Jones playing well and Ty Montgomery looking capable of holding down #3 WR duties.
Packers WR James Jones is listed on the 2nd team behind WR Davante Adams on the team's updated depth chart. That suggests that Jones is Green Bay's #3 WR. (Ty Montgomery is listed behind Randall Cobb; Jeff Janis on the 3rd team behind Jones.) Jones doesn't have much gas left in his tank, but the #3 spot in the Packers' offense could make him a viable spot start option in fantasy. We'll be keeping a close eye on how the WR snaps are divvied in this weekend's opener against the Bears.
