The Raiders weren’t kidding when they said Zay Jones was going to step into the role of number one receiver for the departed Henry Ruggs III.

Jones led all wide receivers in the game, taking all but three snaps (66). That’s actually would have been a career-high for Ruggs, both in terms of offensive snaps and percentage (96%). Stats were another story.

Ruggs averaged five targets per game this season. And he led the team in receiving. Jones saw four targets and had just one catch for 20 yards.

Fellow starting receiver Bryan Edwards was right behind Jones with 64 snaps (93%). And he didn’t have a single catch on four targets. So, what did the Raiders have to show for those 130 combined snaps? Eight targets. One catch. One interception.

Jones was the intended target on Derek Carr’s second interception. Certainly, Carr deserves some blame for the lack of connections with his starting outside receivers. But regardless, that’s an ugly stat line.
