Las Vegas Raiders WR Zay Jones posted two receptions for 46 yards in Week 1 against the Baltimore Ravens, including a 31-yard touchdown in overtime.
Huddle Up: After the game, QB Derek Carr said Jones has been working hard, and it sounds like he has taken a shine to the wideout. However, as long as Bryan Edwards, Hunter Renfrow and Henry Ruggs are healthy, Jones won't see a ton of targets. Despite the game-winning TD, Jones doesn't have much fantasy appeal.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Zay Jones said recently that head coach Jon Gruden has reinvigorated his passion for football. 'It's a lot of fun (being coached by Gruden),' Jones said in an interview for the team's in-house TV show. 'I've said this to many people I've talked to, Gruden has kind of reignited that fire and that love, for me, with football again. Football's something that early on in my career, felt like a job a little bit. But Gruden has brought that passion that's just like, 'I enjoy playing this game again. I enjoy being out here.''
Huddle Up: Jones, once a fantasy up-and-comer after a strong sophomore season with the Bills in 2018, has only caught 34 passes for 301 yards and one TD in 26 games with the Silver and Black over the last two seasons. And even with leading wideout Nelson Agholor now gone, he still faces an uphill battle for WR targets with John Brown and Willie Snead joining holdover Hunter Renfrow, Henry Ruggs and Bryan Edwards. In short, Jones remains far off the fantasy radar in all but the deepest of leagues.

Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones was traded to the Oakland Raiders Monday, Oct. 7, in exchange for a 2021 fifth-round draft choice.
Huddle Up: The Bills have solid receiver depth with John Brown, Cole Beasley and Duke Williams, so they could trade Jones at this point. Williams probably will receive a few more targets during games and could be a flex option depending on the matchup.
