Robert Woods A Possible Cut Candidate

Friday, February 23, 2:21 PM

The Houston Texans will have an estimated $65.4 million in salary cap space in 2024, so they are in good shape. But if they are going to cut someone to gain even more cap space this offseason, The Athletic's Mike Jones speculates it could be veteran wide receiver Robert Woods. While Woods has been regarded as a reliable veteran, his production has declined in recent years, and he's set to count $9.75 million against the cap. He had only 40 catches for 426 yards and a touchdown in 14 games in 2023, and the emergence of young receivers Nico Collins and Tank Dell could cause the soon-to-be 32-year-old to be expendable. If he's cut, Woods would come with a $4.75 million dead-cap hit. Even after Dell suffered a season-ending injury last year, Woods found it difficult to stand out for the Texans and fantasy managers.

Zay Jones Has Six Catches In Return

Sunday, January 7, 8:03 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Zay Jones (hamstring, knee) returned from a two-game absence for the Week 18 meeting with the Titans. He finished with six catches (nine targets) for 47 yards. However, it was enough, as the Jags couldn't beat the Titans to earn a postseason berth. Nevertheless, Jones struggled with various injuries and underwhelming play throughout the 2023-24 campaign. Although Trevor Lawrence didn't help make things easy for Jones, fantasy managers were still disappointed with how things ended. At any rate, he's not a lock to be back in Jacksonville next season. However, Lawrence must turn things around if Jones hopes to be a week-to-week fantasy option in 2024-25.
