Jones is a nice addition for the Ravens. Well it did not take long for former Texans receiver/return specialist Jacoby Jones to find a new home, agreeing to a two-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens yesterday according to ESPN.com. Although, Jones was considered a disappointment in Houston, he should become the Ravens third receiver next season. He may also take over return duties for cornerback Ladarius Webb, who recently signed a big contract, meaning it’s likely that Baltimore will not want to expose him to injuries on special teams anymore. As a fantasy player Jones value will not be affected much by this move. He received more targets last season when Andre Johnson was injured and he still did not produce results. Therefore Jones is a bye week option at best except in leagues where return yards score points. Yet the Ravens are not playing fantasy football, so this is a solid move.
