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.

John Metchie III News

Robert Wood, John Metchie III Limited Tuesday

Tuesday, January 16, 7:58 PM

Houston Texans wide receivers Robert Woods (hip) and John Metchie III (foot) were both listed as limited participants for Tuesday's practice session. Woods has been rested early during the week for most of the year and is expected to be available to play this Saturday against the Baltimore Ravens in the Divisional Round. He missed the Week 18 regular season finale and returned in the wild-card win over the Cleveland Browns, only to catch one of his two targets for 11 yards. The 31-year-old could have a bigger role in a tough matchup against Baltimore this weekend now that Noah Brown (shoulder) is on Injured Reserve. Still, both Woods and Metchie will be low-cost dart throws in DFS against the Ravens, with most of quarterback C.J. Stroud's targets going to Nico Collins and tight end Dalton Schultz. Woods had only 40 catches for 426 yards and one score in 2023.
