ESPN - [Full Article]

Wide receiver James Jones is still listed under "other" on the New York Giants' official depth chart -- behind the first, second and third string. But that could change soon.

Jones had five catches for 83 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, both team highs. He's been with Big Blue less than a month, but the eight-year veteran certainly has a better track record than most of the receivers he's competing with for a roster spot.

"Just making the most of my opportunities," Jones said Tuesday. "It was a good game receiving the ball. Still got a lot of work to do. I’m extremely hard on myself. I dropped a ball, had a couple bad releases that I felt like would have given me the opportunity to make more plays. Run-blocking-wise I need to get my run-blocking together. Catching the football it was a pretty good game, but I’ve still got a lot of work to do."

Fantasy Impact:

Jones was cut by the Oakland Raiders this spring, but he led Oakland in receptions last season with 73. He's only 31 years old and not that far removed from catching 14 touchdown passes with the Green Bay Packers in 2012, the story said. Of course, the big question is if Jones could land back with the Packers, assuming they want him. The way the Giant WRs are banged up at this point of camp, New York may not want to part with him.
