Lions | Marvin Jones expanding his game

Sun, 06 May 2018 19:13:49 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones said he has been adding muscle this offseason to make himself harder to tackle and increase his yards after catch.

Fantasy Tip: Jones emerged as one of the best downfield threats in the NFL last year, finishing with more than 1,000 yards and nine scores. He's already a WR2 heading into 2018, and becoming more of a threat after the catch would only boost his stock.

Lions | Marvin Jones thinks DET can have top offense

Sun, 04 Feb 2018 11:10:03 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones said he believes the Lions have the chance to be the top offense in the NFL next season with QB Matthew Stafford and all of the main receivers under contract.

Fantasy Tip: Jones was one of two Lions receivers that posted at least 1,000 yards this season and also led the team with nine touchdown receptions. He should be considered a No. 2 receiver in most leagues next season, while Stafford and Golden Tate should also be starting fantasy options.

Lions | Marvin Jones to work with Randy Moss

Fri, 05 Jan 2018 19:29:15 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones had a league-high 16 receptions on passes thrown 20 or more yards down the field this year and ranked third in yards and touchdowns, and he credited his success on deep throws to his offseason work with retired WR Randy Moss. "I'm probably just going to replicate what I did this offseason," Jones said. "I worked with Randy more toward the summer, so I'm going to do that."

Fantasy Tip: Jones finished ninth in the NFL with a career-high 1,101 yards and ranked fourth with nine touchdowns. He'll enter 2018 as a WR2 candidate.

Lions | Detroit not expecting to rest starters

Tue, 26 Dec 2017 10:21:34 -0800

Detroit Lions head coach Jim Caldwell told reporters Tuesday, Dec. 26, he has given no consideration to resting his starters in Week 17 versus the Green Bay Packers - including players such as QB Matthew Stafford, WR Golden Tate and WR Marvin Jones.

Fantasy Tip: Caldwell is coaching for his job and while it seems highly unlikely management will put any weight on his ability to win a meaningless game against a fellow non-playoff team, he apparently isn't leaving it to chance either. As such, it appears Stafford, Tate and Jones will all be reasonable plays in a plus-matchup for owners who need to concern themselves with such things in Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: Jones has managed three or more receptions in each of his past six games, and 10 of the past 11 outings. He remains a decent WR3 or flex option in PPR leagues, while serving as a WR4 in most standard formats heading into Week 17.

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones caught six passes for 109 yards and two touchdowns in a Week 12 loss to the Minnesota Vikings Thursday, Nov. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Jones was really the lone bright spot for the Lions on offense. He scored their only two touchdowns, including a masterful catch on a deep ball in double-coverage. With five touchdowns in his last four games, Jones is a mainstay in WR2 territory.
