Chargers release veteran wide receiver James Jones

James Jones is back on the market.

Four weeks after Jones signed on with San Diego, the Chargers have released the 32-year-old wideout, the team announced Monday.

You know who else must be stunned about what’s going on right now? April Trevor Siemian. That dude was about to go lunch pail shopping.

Per @JamesPalmerTV, Trevor Siemian had a regular person job lined up before the draft because he didn’t know what his future was.

Jameis Winston, QB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Winston finished just outside QB1 territory (QB13) last season, but I like him to step up in his second-year. He had 22 touchdown passes which was the fourth-most among rookie quarterbacks. Which isn’t a surprise because it’s not like Terry Bradshaw was slinging the rock as a rookie. Hell, did he even play as a rookie? A lot of those dudes sat the bench. The one thing I kind of like about Winston is that he isn’t afraid to force the issue and go downfield. He was among the leaders in yards per attempt, so he’s not a dump-off specialist. He’ll frustrate you some with his interceptions, but then he’ll seed one to Adam Humphries to make you best friends again.

Marcus Mariota, QB, Tennessee Titans
Mariota opened like Guns N’ Roses with a huge debut in the first couple of weeks, and everybody scrambled to get him off the waiver wire. He had some ebbs and flows like most rookies, but he had at least 30 fantasy points twice in his rookie year. Tied for most by a rookie. I love his scrambling ability. He had a number of sick runs, and that always helps to propel a quarterback’s value. He’s much more cautious than Winston, but make no mistake, he can make all of the throws that he needs to. He’s really got something cooking with tight end Delanie Walker. I like Mariota to have the safer floor than Winston because he does do a great job. Well, maybe a decent job. He did have 10 picks last year. So maybe I’m driving down narrative street.

DeAndre Washington, RB, Oakland Raiders
Mostly when you pick a rookie fantasy running back, you’re damning the guy who is starting ahead of him. I’m not super-stoked on Latavius Murray. Which is strange because I love to take Murray in the fourth-round because I find him a great value and really love the Raiders offensive line. That’s why I have Washington here. He’s going to have a defined third-down role at some point. And he could actually become a Danny Woodhead-type, who ranks in Top 25 each season kind of way. I also believe he could end up being the No. 1 in Oakland. And then stuff will go crazy.
