Scouting report

SD WR James Jones - 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
With Stevie Johnson done for the season after tearing a meniscus, James Jones was signed to add another veteran weapon for Philip Rivers. Jones, who had 50-catch season with the Packers last season, may have lost a step at 32, but with Keenan Allen and Travis Benjamin already slated for starting spots, the Chargers are apparently comfortable using Jones as a veteran replacement in a limited role in 2016.

Fantasy Downside
In addition to having lost a step, Jones moves into the mix with younger players like Tyrell Williams and Dontrelle Inman, both of whom may have an edge on the veteran newcomer in their understanding of the offense and their chemistry with Rivers.

2016 Bottom Line
Jones won't merit redraft consideration even if he makes the final cut -- something that isn't certain heading into exhibition play. Should he excel in August and make the 53-man roster, Jones will likely be relegated to waiver-wire status. His proven nose for the end-zone could serve him well in that capacity as the season progresses, but nobody should jump to conclusions about that without seeing evidence of it on the field.

GB WR James Jones - Week 19, 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 19 at Arizona
Jones got 11 targets last week turning them into seven catches for 81 yards. He failed to score, but with Davante Adams down, Jones picked up the slack. Adams will sit this one out as well, so Jones should see plenty of targets. He did get 11 targets at Arizona a few weeks ago, but managed just five catches for 46 yards. The Cardinals will be a tough nut to crack again this week, but Jones should be OK to use as a No. 3 receiver.

GB WR James Jones - Week 18, 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 18 at Washington
Jones continues to be the receiver that Aaron Rodgers looks for down the field, as his 4-catch, 102-yard line last week shows. Because of that, he remains a high-risk, high-reward player. Jones caught eight TD passes this season and Washington allowed 23 to opposing receivers. If you're going to roll the dice on a Green Bay receiver, this is the one to play.

GB WR James Jones - Week 17, 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs. Minnesota
Jones had five catches for 46 yards last week but failed to score, which is pretty much his calling card in this offense. When he scores, he's usually great. When he doesn't you get next to nothing. He did have six catches for 109 yards and a score against the Vikings the first time around - one of just two 100-yard games he has had this season. Is it worth a roll of the dice this week? Well, there are worse options out there. But not really a lot, given Green Bay's offensive issues in the second half.

GB WR James Jones - Week 16, 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 at Arizona
Jones continues to be a Dirty Harry kind of player. Do you feel lucky punk? When he's good, he's typically very good, such as last week when he hauled in six passes for 82 yards and a score. When he's not, well, you're just as well off leaving an empty spot in your lineup. The Cardinals have been solid against opposing wideouts all season, ranking 10th in points allowed to the position, so proceed with caution.

GB WR James Jones - Week 15, 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 at Oakland
Jones had four receptions for 49 yards last week but failed to score for the sixth time in the past seven games. He'll be playing against his former team this week, but using Jones as anything more than a flex play this week is an extreme risk.

GB WR James Jones - Week 14, 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 vs. Dallas
You might want to put out an APB on Jones. He's had one decent game in the past two months and it most certainly wasn't last week, when he had one catch for 19 yards. Working against Dallas, which is third in points allowed to wide receivers, isn't a good prospect.
