Raiders release WR James Jones

CSN Bay Area - [Full Article]

Veteran receiver James Jones is being released by the Raiders.

The team selected Alabama receiver Amari Cooper with the No. 4 overall draft pick in last week’s draft.

The Raiders also signed veteran receiver Michael Crabtree late in free agency and, with Rod Streater back healthy and Cooper in the fold, Jones became an odd man out.

Fantasy Impact: 

The article didn't mention Andre Holmes, but he's also in the mix for snaps. Jones led the team in receptions and touchdowns, and was second to Holmes in receiving yards. The only receiver we would trust in Oakland is Cooper, since he's likely to be immediately thrust into a starting role. Crabtree, Streater and Holmes will battle for playing time.
