RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

A broken foot and subsequent ankle injury cost Jones the entire 2014 season, but at press time he's expected to be a full participant in the team's offseason workouts and training camp. Before the injury, Jones had a strong 2013 campaign, with 14.0 YPC, 8.9 YPT and 10 touchdowns on just 80 targets. At 6-2, 198, with good (4.46 40) speed, Jones is a fluid route runner and has good hands. His ceiling is likely capped by the presence of star A.J. Green, and it's conceivable Jones could begin the year behind Mohamed Sanu, who saw 98 targets in 2014 when the Bengals receiving corps was decimated by injuries. But Jones has been a better and more efficient player than Sanu and has more upside should something happen to Green.

2014

Jones had a mini-breakout in Year 2 – at least as much of one as he could opposite target-hog A.J. Green. Jones averaged 14.0 YPC and 8.9 YPT last year, while scoring 10 times despite only 13 red-zone looks. At 6-2, 195, Jones is on the small end for a red-zone threat, but he has good speed (4.46 40), is a fluid runner and has good hands. The Bengals threw the ball quite a bit last year, and there’s a chance Jones’ role could grow after a strong showing down the stretch and in the playoff loss to the Chargers. Just keep in mind there are a lot of mouths to feed in this offense and that an August foot injury is in line to delay the start of his 2014 campaign.

2013

Jones caught just 18 balls (on 32 targets) for 201 yards and one touchdown last season. However, his conclusion to the 2012 campaign (at least four targets in each of the last five games, including the playoffs) makes him an interesting prospect entering his second season in 2013.

2012

Jones has the chance to make an impact during his first NFL season due to the uncertainty surrounding the Bengals' number two wide receiver position. Additionally, Jones has potential in the return game, so he is worth keeping an eye on.
