View WR Fantasy Rankings »

What You Need to Know:

  • Henry Ruggs’ absence opened up opportunities for Jones. The veteran posted 47-546-1 on 70 targets (11.1%).
  • From Week 12 on, Jones saw 7+ targets in all but 1 game. He finished as a WR2 twice over that stretch.
  • Among 68 WRs with 60+ targets, Jones ranked 53rd in yards per route run; 48th in PFF receiving grade.
  • With only 11.6 YPC, he wasn’t anything close to a dynamic playmaker.
  • In Jacksonville, 2022 brought on the arrival of new HC Doug Pederson and target competition with Christian Kirk and Evan Engram.
  • Jones, 27, signed a 3-year, $24 million deal with $14 mil guaranteed. It’s a surprising sum given his production profile, but note that the Jags had cap space to burn.
  • Marvin Jones returns for year 2 following a 120-target, 73-catch season.
  • Trevor Lawrence struggled in year 1, but a lot can be traced to Urban Meyer’s failed stint. We expect a sizable year 2 jump.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

A former Round 2 pick, Jones’ career-best season (56-652-7 on 102 targets) came back in 2018 with Buffalo.

The Jags tossed him a bunch of money in free agency. But he’s unlikely to finish any higher than 3rd in targets for a passing game that’ll undergo a lot of change. Jones should go undrafted outside of deep leagues.

Jaguars WR Zay Jones set career highs with 14 targets, 11 catches and 145 yards in Sunday's win over the Ravens. It was just the 2nd 100-yard game ever for Jones, who added a 2-point conversion catch near the end of regulation for the game-winning points. WR Christian Kirk ranked 2nd on the team with 9 targets but caught just 4 for 46 yards. RB JaMycal Hasty and WR Jamal Agnew tied for 2nd on the team with 5 receptions apiece. Hasty, Agnew and WR Marvin Jones Jr. caught QB Trevor Lawrence's 3 TD passes. The next 2 weeks bring upside passing matchups with the Lions and Titans.
