2018 Fantasy Outlook
Jones had a disappointing rookie season in 2017. After leading the NCAA in receptions the previous year, he only hauled in 36.5 percent of his 74 targets in his first NFL campaign. There's still a high ceiling for Jones, but he didn't do much with his opportunities last year, and he'll have to move past the unusual off-field issues he went through during the offseason. He'll have a new quarterback and offensive coordinator, but he'll also have some tough competition for the No. 2 receiver job after the Bills traded for Corey Coleman in early August.

Finds end zone in loss to Texans
WRBuffalo Bills
October 14, 2018
Jones caught three of eight targets for 35 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 20-13 loss to the Texans.
ANALYSIS
Jones led the team in targets and got into the end zone for the first time this season on a 16-yard play in the fourth quarter. While this was a useful performance, he has reached 35 receiving yards just three times this season and his fantasy outlook could take a further hit if starting quarterback Josh Allen (elbow) misses time. Jones will look to build on this effort next Sunday against the Colts.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
The Bills' second-round pick, Jones has an excellent chance for targets right out of the gate, especially with Anquan Boldin abruptly deciding to retire. Jordan Matthews is locked in as a contributor, but the depth chart is otherwise thin, leaving Jones as the likely No. 3 receiver. Jones could even push for the No. 1 outside role, as Matthews is best utilized out of the slot. While the Bills are a run-first team, they lack a designated third-down back or high-volume tight end. At 6-2, 201 with 4.45 40 speed, Jones is fast for a tall receiver and a strong route runner with good hands. He's not the home-run threat of the recently departed Sammy Watkins, but rather a more athletic (133-inch broad jump) possession complement than last year's version (Robert Woods). After notching 158 catches at East Carolina in 2016, Jones could make an immediate impact in a revamped receiving corps.
