Lions | Marvin Jones draws praise from head coach

Sat, 24 Jun 2017 15:51:57 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones focused on strengthening his lower body to improve his explosiveness and also spent time working out with former NFL receiver Randy Moss. "I think Marvin started out (last) season extremely well. He's been doing even better this spring. He's had one of those springs that you kind of look to. This guy is right there on the verge of maintaining that kind of explosive start that he had last year. He's really, really had a real good spring," head coach Jim Caldwell said.

Fantasy Tip: Jones still has some breakout potential in him following the departure of Anquan Boldin, but Eric Ebron would seem to be the first in line to benefit since he runs more routes closer to the line of scrimmage. Rookie Kenny Golladay has also impressed so far. If Jones can improve in the short passing game - he focused on route-running with Moss - perhaps he can move into the WR3 discussion.

Lions | Marvin Jones improving this offseason

Mon, 19 Jun 2017 14:22:46 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones focused on strengthening his lower body to improve his explosiveness this offseason. He worked out with former NFL WR Randy Moss to help him in that endeavor and to improve his yards after the catch. Head coach Jim Caldwell praised Jones for the offseason he has put together so far. "This guy is right there on the verge of maintaining that kind of explosive start that he had last year," Caldwell said. "He's really, really had a real good spring."

Fantasy Tip: Jones has been overlooked somewhat since that fast start last season. He remains the Lions' No. 2 wide receiver behind Golden Tate, but T.J. Jones and rookie Kenny Golladay are asking to take targets away. That being said, Jones is a solid low-end WR3 to high-end WR4 option after nearly gaining 1,000 yards and four scores in 2016.

Lions | Marvin Jones more comfortable

Sat, 27 May 2017 18:51:59 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones said he is a lot more comfortable with offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter's system entering this season after struggling to master the offense last year.

Fantasy Tip: Jones cooled off after a scorching start to last season, but he still flirted with 1,000 yards. He enters 2017 as Detroit No. 2 receiver, and Jones is worth drafting as a low-end WR3.

Lions | Marvin Jones unhappy with season

Tue, 10 Jan 2017 19:22:31 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones was disappointed with how his season turned out, admitting, "In terms of my standards, it wasn't good at all." He added, "When you look at how I started, you wouldn't think it would end this way."

Fantasy Tip: He has a point, as through the first four weeks of the campaign, Jones was second to only Julio Jones for most receiving yards in the league. However, the former Cincinnati Bengal should also take away positives from this year, as he did manage to record a career-high 930 yards to go with 55 catches and four touchdowns in 15 games. Jones has the potential to be a fine WR3 option next season.

Lions | Coverages hurting Marvin Jones

Sat, 31 Dec 2016 17:15:26 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones had 408 receiving yards in the first three games but just 446 yards over the last 11 games, and Jones said double-coverage and an offense designed to spread the ball around has resulted in his lack of production.

Fantasy Tip: There is no denying that Jones has been slumping for a while, but he could be worth taking a chance on against Green Bay in Week 17. The first time he faced the Packers, he finished with 205 yards and two scores.

Lions | Marvin Jones disappears again

Mon, 26 Dec 2016 21:51:23 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones posted just one catch for 16 yards on seven targets in the Week 16 game against the Dallas Cowboys Monday, Dec. 26.

Fantasy Tip: The Lions were trying to get Jones involved, but he continues to struggle after a big start to the season. He posted six catches for a career-high 205 yards and two touchdown in Week 3 against the Green Bay Packers, the team's opponent in Week 17. Perhaps seeing green and gold will get him going again.

Lions | Marvin Jones posts 67 yards

Sun, 11 Dec 2016 20:50:18 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (quadriceps) posted four catches for 67 yards in the Week 14 game against the Chicago Bears on five targets.

Fantasy Tip: Jones shook off a quad injury to post his best yardage total since Week 7. Still, he has a long way to go before getting into the good graces of his fantasy owners, as he hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 6.

Lions | Marvin Jones to be active against Bears

Sat, 10 Dec 2016 23:56:29 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (quadriceps) will play against the Chicago Bears in Week 14, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Fantasy Tip: Despite a major uptick in targets last week, Jones still managed just 54 yards on four grabs and has topped 60 yards receiving only once in his last eight. Add the injury on top and Jones is a desperation flex option.

Lions | Marvin Jones' status in question

Fri, 09 Dec 2016 16:25:34 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (quadriceps) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 9, and is listed as questionable for Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: Jones was targeted 11 times in the last game but finished the game with four receptions for 54 yards. He will still have a role in the passing game but there are other options that probably will receive more targets. Jones could be a flex option in deeper leagues but should be passed over in most leagues.
