Zay Jones Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

Cardinals insider Bob McManaman writes that WR Greg Dortch's "role is expected to expand in 2024." McManaman projects Dortch as the team's starting slot receiver.

The Cardinals are signing former Jaguars WR Zay Jones, according to multiple reports. NFL Network reports that it's a one-year deal worth "up to" $4.5 million.

The Jaguars released WR Zay Jones, saving $4.18 million against the 2024 salary cap. This move was inevitable after Jacksonville took WR Brian Thomas in the first round of the draft -- after signing WR Gabriel Davis in free agency. Jones missed seven games with knee and hamstring injuries last year but caught 82 balls back in 2022. The 29-year-old can still help an NFL team, although Jones is not a good bet to be a major fantasy asset in 2024 or beyond.

The Jaguars are signing WR Gabe Davis to a three-year deal, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That could signal the team doesn't expect to be able to re-sign WR Calvin Ridley, who reached unrestricted free agency today. Jacksonville would have trouble fitting Ridley and Davis contracts under the cap, especially with Edge Josh Allen currently on the franchise tag ($24 million in 2024 salary). It also wouldn't make much sense for the team to pay both guys plus WRs Christian Kirk and Zay Jones, both of whom remain under contract. TE Evan Engram also got a hefty extension just before last season. There's room for Davis to earn at least as much target share as he found in Buffalo. The crowded Jacksonville corps could keep him frustrating as a fantasy option, though. Davis has been a nice best ball value so far this draft season, going 62nd among WRs. We'll see whether his new contract delivers a big boost. But we'll likely keep buying Davis in best ball. Check our best ball rankings to see how his new home affects him.

Jaguars WR Zay Jones (knee, hamstring) is active for today’s game vs. the Titans. He was limited in practice all week and listed as questionable, so it’s fair to assume he’ll be playing at less than 100% in this one. Jones at least gets a potential target boost with WR Christian Kirk out.

Jaguars WR Zay Jones (knee, hamstring) "should play" vs. the Titans today, while WR Christian Kirk (groin) is "less certain," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. We'll get Jacksonville's inactives around 11:30 am ET, but it sure sounds like Kirk will be operating at far less than 100% if he ends up playing. We'd try to avoid him in season-long fantasy lineups. He's a risky DFS play, even at deflated price tags.

Jaguars WR Zay Jones (knee, hamstring) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Titans. HC Doug Pederson said Friday that Jones is healthier now than he was at this time last week and is expected to play on Sunday.

Jaguars WRs Christian Kirk (groin) and Zay Jones (knee, hamstring) were limited in Wednesday's practice. Kirk was just designated to return from IR after early-December core-muscle surgery; Jones missed last week's game with his injuries. We'll keep tabs on these two leading up to Sunday's must-win game vs. the Titans.

Jaguars WR Zay Jones (knee, hamstring) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Panthers. That leaves WRs Parker Washington, Jamal Agnew, and Tim Jones behind No. 1 Calvin Ridley. Ridley – along with TE Evan Engram – should see a big chunk of Jacksonville’s targets today. But we’re expecting a run-heavy game plan from the Jags.

Jaguars WR Zay Jones (knee, hamstring) won't play vs. the Panthers today, according to CBS' Aditi Kinkhabwala. That'll leave WRs Parker Washington, Jamal Agnew, and Tim Jones behind top dog Calvin Ridley. We're expecting a run-heavy game plan from Jacksonville today with QB C.J. Beathard at the helm.
