Description: Bills receiver Donald Jones will miss the final two games of the regular season after the team placed him on the reserve/non-football injury list. SOURCE: BuffaloNews.com
Insight: Jones said the issue is "not career-threatening at all" and that it's something he has been "dealing with for years." He didn't specify further but the Buffalo News reports that Jones said last year that he has a "minor kidney disorder" that caused him to go undrafted in 2010.

Description: Bills receiver Donald Jones is questionable for Sunday's game against Miami with a calf injury after missing Week 15.
Insight: Jones hasn't done much of late and isn't a factor in most fantasy lineups. T.J. Graham has seen 15 targets over the past two games to rank second on the team behind Stevie Johnson.

Description: Bills receiver Donald Jones is inactive for Sunday's game against Jacksonville with a calf injury.
Insight: Jones has just 30 yards in receiving over the past two games and wasn't a factor in most fantasy lineups. Scott Chandler may see more targets as will Stevie Johnson.

Description: Bills receiver Donald Jones is questionable for Sunday's game against Jacksonville with a calf injury.
Insight: Jones has just 30 yards in receiving over the past two games and remains a risky desperation play.

Description: Bills receiver Donald Jones has been more active as of late, catching 16 passes for 186 yards and two touchdowns in the last three games.
Insight: Jones had six receptions for the second straight game Sunday against New England with 74 yards and a touchdown. The receiver remains a risky desperation play but his value is certainly higher now than earlier in the year.

Description: Bills receiver Donald Jones left the Bills' Week 4 loss to the Patriots with a head injury and is questionable for Sunday's game against San Francisco. Before leaving Jones caught a 68-yard touchdown pass.
Insight: The Bills could certainly use his speed out there when the face the 49ers. With most teams focusing on Stevie Johnson, Jones and Scott Chandler have a chance to produce good fantasy numbers.

Description: Bills receiver Donald Jones should be in line for more targets with David Nelson out for the season with a torn ACL.
Insight: Jones caught five passes for 41 yards and a score in Week 1 against the Jets, and WGR 550 Buffalo said that Bills coach Chan Gailey said Jones is a candidate to take snaps from the slot with Nelson out. Buffalo plays a lot of spread receiver sets, meaning Jones should be on the field most of the time regardless of where he lines up.

Description: According to BuffaloBills.com, Bills coach Chan Gailey said Donald Jones is still leading the No. 2 wide receiver battle.
Insight: Even though the Bills throw the ball fairly often and have a competent QB under center, Jones won't have much fantasy value opposite Stevie Johnson, especially once David Nelson returns, since the team runs a lot of spread receiver sets.
 
7/26/2012 9:51:00 AM
Description: The Bills have listed Donald Jones as the No. 2 receiver at the start of training camp, according to BuffaloNews.com.
Insight: Jones only played eight games last season, catching 23 passes for 231 yards and one score. Though the receiver has some upside in Bills coach Chan Gailey's spread offense, he shouldn't get enough targets to warrant fantasy ownership with Stevie Johnson, Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller on the roster.

Description: Jones has been ruled out for Week 17 because of a concussion.
Insight: Jones enjoyed a surprisingly productive Week 16. Otherwise, even most fantasy players probably have no idea who he is. (RapidDraft.com)

Description: Jones caught five passes for 54 yards Sunday against the Patriots.
Insight: The five catches matched a season-high for the rookie, who has 18 receptions on the year. (RapidDraft.com)
