Zay Jones: Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups – Week 2
BALLING MOVEMENT: Add PPR leagues to 14 teams
REGISTERED IN: 12% of Leagues
ANALYSIS: Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Zay Jones is an intriguing waiver wire target in the deep leagues heading into Week 2.
Christian Kirk was the team’s leading receiver as everyone expected, but it was Zay Jones who became the team’s No. 2 target. Trevor Lawrence looked his way nine times, with Jones hauling six catches for 65 yards.
Jones looked good at times last year with the Raiders, and so far it looks like he’s continuing that in Jacksonville. If the Jaguars offense improves in their poor 2021 season, then Jones should be able to put on some really great games this season.
It’s too early to pick Jones in shallow leagues or put him in your starting lineup, but in a 14-team league, Jones is one of the more attractive options due to his role in Week 1. Jones could end up seeing a ton of targets on this team, as the Jaguars lack elite options in the passing game.
