Lions | Marvin Jones rebounds in Week 11

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 14:35:48 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones posted four receptions for 85 yards and a touchdown in Week 11 against the Chicago Bears on seven targets.

Fantasy Tip: Jones rebounded from last week's effort when he had just one catch for 22 yards on two targets, both season lows. He remains a solid WR3 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 12 against the Vikings on Thanksgiving. He had 42 yards on two grabs in Week 4 in the first meeting against Minnesota.

Lions | Just one grab for Marvin Jones

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 13:56:56 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones posted just one catch for 22 yards on two targets in Week 10 against the Cleveland Browns.

Fantasy Tip: Jones completely laid an egg after posting six or more catches in each of the past four outings. He also had at least 96 yards and three total touchdowns over his past three games, so this hurt fantasy owners badly. The return of Kenny Golladay might have had some effect, but Jones just wasn't involved as much for whatever reason. Don't panic unless it happens again in Week 11.

Lions | Marvin Jones dominates GB on MNF

Mon, 06 Nov 2017 20:38:13 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones registered seven receptions on 11 targets for 107 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the team's Week 9 victory Monday, Nov. 6, against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Jones is really hitting his stride right now, as he's topped 95 receiving yards in each of the last three contests, while garnering three touchdowns over that span as well. Previously, his season high was 54 yards through the first five games, and had just two touchdowns during that stretch. With the way he's going entering Week 10, Jones should be active in all lineups.

Lions | Marvin Jones racks up 128 yards

Sun, 29 Oct 2017 20:52:44 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones posted six grabs for 128 yards on 11 targets in the Week 8 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: Jones has back-to-back impressive games, totaling 12 receptions for 224 yards and a score. He also has six catches in each of his past three outings. He is worth using as a low-end WR2 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 9 at Green Bay.

Lions | Marvin Jones returns to end zone

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 16:53:48 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones racked up six receptions for 96 yards and a touchdown on 14 targets in Week 6 against the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Jones was the only player in the game with double-digit targets, and he had five more than teammate T.J. Jones. The yardage total was easily his best of the season, besting the 54 yards he posted last week. That's 12 catches over the past two weekends, so perhaps he can be trusted again as a WR4 in most fantasy leagues. Of course, just as he was building momentum the team has a bye in Week 7.

Lions | Marvin Jones racks up six catches

Sun, 08 Oct 2017 15:24:50 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones hauled in six receptions for 54 yards on eight targets in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: The six receptions and 54 yards were each season bests, as he entered the game with just eight grabs for 130 yards through his first four outings. He is still nothing more than a WR4 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 6 despite the favorable matchup in New Orleans.

Lions | Marvin Jones targeted five times

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 15:01:54 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones posted two grabs for a team-high 42 yards on five targets in Week 4 against the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Tip: Jones failed to score a touchdown for the second consecutive game, but this was actually his yardage high for the season. As such, he remains nothing more than a low-end WR4 or flex play heading into Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers.

Lions | Marvin Jones cashes in only catch

Mon, 18 Sep 2017 20:49:31 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones had just one catch in Week 2 against the New York Giants on Monday, Sept. 18, but it was good for a 27-yard touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: Jones was tied for the team high with five targets, but he and Matthew Stafford were unable to connect. He'll look for more receptions in Week 3 against the visiting Falcons. He remains more of a WR4 or WR5 in most fantasy leagues at this point.

Lions | Marvin Jones gets into end zone

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 16:36:18 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones posted two grabs for 37 yards and a touchdown on two targets in Week 1 against the Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Jones is behind Golden Tate on the depth chart, and he appeared to be behind rookie Kenny Golladay, too, especially late in the game. That's not good for the fantasy appeal of Jones going forward.

Lions | Marvin Jones plays well

Fri, 25 Aug 2017 19:05:25 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones caught four passes for 62 yards and a touchdown against the New England Patriots in the preseason Friday, Aug. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ran hot and cold in his first season with Detroit but still topped 900 yards. His second year with Matthew Stafford could lead to steadier production, and Jones deserves to be in the WR3 conversation.

Lions | Marvin Jones shines in red zone

Sat, 05 Aug 2017 21:21:20 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones has emerged as one of the QB Matthew Stafford's favorite targets in the red zone, according to Kyle Meinke of MLive.com.

Fantasy Tip: Jones started with a bang but tailed off in his first season with the Lions, but he still finished with 930 yards. WR3 production isn't out of the question in 2017, especially if Stafford is looking his way around the goal line.

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.

Lions | Marvin Jones logs limited practice

Thu, 08 Dec 2016 14:20:35 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (quadriceps) was a limited participant in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Jones missed a crucial game for fantasy owners this past weekend, but it appears he's trending towards a return in Week 14. Even so, it's hard to trust him right now, as while the Lions have surged the past couple of months, winning seven of their last eight, Jones has topped 55 yards only once over that stretch, and he hasn't scored since Week 6. It's tough to see him turning it back around while playing at less than 100 percent.

Lions | Limited practice for Marvin Jones

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 13:55:12 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (quadriceps) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Jones was limited in practice last week too and ended up not playing, so don't start getting all positive about his status just yet. If Jones is sidelined again or limited at all then Golden Tate should be viewed as a WR1 versus the mediocre Chicago Bears pass defense.

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 08:58:23 -0800

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (thigh) will not play in Week 13's game against the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Jones will be sidelined despite participating in practice on a limited basis throughout the week. Golden Tate, Anquan Boldin, Eric Ebron and Theo Riddick should each see an increased number of targets versus New Orleans as a result.

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 07:37:07 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (thigh) is considered a long shot to play in Week 13's game against the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Jones was limited in practice throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. If he is officially declared inactive, WRs Golden Tate and Anquan Boldin should see an increase in fantasy value, along with TE Eric Ebron and RB Theo Riddick.

Fri, 02 Dec 2016 16:43:03 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (thigh) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 2, and is listed as questionable for Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Jones had a decent outing in Week 12 with 54 yards, but he has posted at least 55 yards in only one of his last seven games. Jones should have a favorable matchup in Week 13 and can be a No. 3 receiver in some fantasy leagues.

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 14:20:08 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (thigh) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Jones has been somewhat dormant since the first few weeks of the season, but facing the New Orleans Saints is a prime opportunity for a rebound. Most position players in this contest are startable, Jones included. View him as a WR3 with WR2 potential.

Lions | Marvin Jones limited Wednesday

Wed, 30 Nov 2016 13:17:05 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (thigh) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 30.

Fantasy Tip: The Lions' matchup with the New Orleans Saints is one of the most promising games of the week. Jones has been quiet since making himself known earlier in the year, but he should not be overlooked in what could be a high-scoring affair. If he's active, he should be started as a low-end WR2 or high-end WR3.

Sun, 20 Nov 2016 17:55:25 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones posted just one catch for 15 yards on two targets in the Week 11 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Fantasy Tip: Jones started off on fire, but he has been very quiet in recent weeks. He has plenty of potential, but right now is nothing more than a WR4 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

Lions | Marvin Jones struggling

Sat, 19 Nov 2016 09:53:17 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones has recorded at least 38 yards in only one of the last five games after a terrific start to the season.

Fantasy Tip: Jones had at least 74 yards in each of the first four games of the season but is coming off a five-yard performance in the last game. He will continue to have a role in the passing game, but owners in most leagues should be able to find better options and keep Jones on the bench.

Fri, 04 Nov 2016 15:53:24 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (foot) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 4, and is not on the injury report for Week 9.

Fantasy Tip: Jones has seen his numbers drop after a solid start to the season and has less than 40 yards receiving in three of his last four games. He will continue to have a solid role in the passing game and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in all leagues.

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (foot) was listed as a limited participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Jones faces a tough matchup against a Vikings defense which has had it on lockdown this season, ranking fourth in the NFL against the pass with only one pass play of 40 or more yards allowed. Jones should be used only as a WR3 in deeper fantasy leagues this week.

Lions | Marvin Jones limited at practice

Wed, 02 Nov 2016 14:34:38 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (foot) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Jones has regressed somewhat after taking the league by storm over the first few weeks of the season. He was targeted 36 times over the first four games of the season, but has only been targeted 23 times in his last four games. The Minnesota Vikings are a tough task, too. Jones is a low-end WR2 to high-end WR3 candidate, but expectations should be lowered.

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 28, and is not on the injury report for Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Jones bounced back in Week 7 after two disappointing performances and has caught two touchdowns in the last three games. He has become the team's top receiver and should be a fine No. 2 receiver for most fantasy owners.

Lions | Marvin Jones returns to practice

Thu, 27 Oct 2016 16:35:51 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (not injury related) returned to practice and got in a full session Thursday, Oct. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Jones scared owners a bit when he mysteriously was not present at practice on Wednesday, but not only did he return one day later, it turned out it wasn't even injury-related. Regardless, Jones has a solid opportunity to return his usual WR2 value this weekend opposite Houston. He's coming off a week that saw him produce his highest yardage total since Week 3.

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (personal) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Specifics of Jones' absence were not disclosed, but he doesn't seem to be injured. He hasn't produced as much in recent weeks with the emergence of Golden Tate, but he's a viable WR2 even in a less than favorable tilt with the Houston Texans.

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 17:42:22 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones posted four receptions for a team-high 94 yards on five targets in the Week 7 game against the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Tip: Jones was unable to find the end zone after scoring four touchdowns over his past four games, but his yardage total was his highest since his 205-yard outburst back in Week 3. He remains a decent WR3 in most fantasy formats heading into Week 8 in Houston.

Lions | Marvin Jones not bothered by recent fade

Sat, 22 Oct 2016 10:54:54 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones was the NFL's most productive receiver through four weeks, racking up 482 and two touchdowns on 23 catches. Over the last two weeks, however, he has totaled only 47 yards and two TDs on six receptions. "If somebody is doubling me, we have the players to really wreck shop. Defenses are going to play how they're going to play and you just adjust. We have great game plans that prepare us to adjust to anything. We're not missing a beat," Jones said.

Fantasy Tip: Jones' recent lack of production has coincided with the absence of Eric Ebron, which is allowing defenses to pay more attention to the Lions' top receiver as well. Things aren't about to get any easier for Jones, as he figures to square off plenty against Josh Norman, Xavier Rhodes (twice) and the Houston Texans' second-ranked pass defense in four of the next five games. He has earned Matthew Stafford's trust in the red zone, however, which should keep him in the WR2 conversation during this difficult stretch.

Lions | Marvin Jones held in check

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones posted two receptions for 10 yards in the Week 6 game against the Los Angeles Rams. He was able to find the end zone on one of the catches. Jones was targeted six times.

Fantasy Tip: Jones exploded for 205 yards and a pair of scores in Week 3, but he has seen a decrease in his yardage totals in each of the past three games. He should be treated more as a WR3 in most fantasy formats until he starts to produce more consistency. At least he has touchdowns in each of the past two.

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (foot) posted four receptions for 37 yards and a touchdown in the Week 5 game against the Philadelphia Eagles. He was targeted five times.

Fantasy Tip: Jones didn't show any ill-effects of his foot injury, although his yardage total was a season low. He still has three touchdowns in the past three games and remains a solid low-end WR2 in most fantasy leagues. The Lions host the Rams in Week 6.

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (foot) is officially active for the team's Week 5 game.

Fantasy Tip: Jones was listed as questionable on the injury report but was a full participant in practice Friday, Oct. 7. Although he is clearly Detroit's go-to receiver and has had an outstanding season thus far, he should be viewed as a WR2 this week against a Philadelphia defense that has not allowed a passing touchdown this year.

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (foot) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Considering he missed practice on Wednesday, this is actually an upgrade for Jones' Week 5 outlook. As long as he plays, he's worth deploying in fantasy lineups, as he's been Detroit's clear go-to No. 1 receiver in the early going. In addition, the former Cincinnati Bengal should benefit as well from tight end Eric Ebron (ankle, knee) most likely sitting out.

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones Jr. led his team's receivers with 74 yards on five catches in a 17-14 loss to the Chicago Bears on Sunday, Oct. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Jones had 205 yards at Lambeau Field against the Green Bay Packers the week before, so he came back to earth. He will still have decent numbers from week to week, but beware they could fluctuate.

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (hamstring) will play in Week 4's game against the Chicago Bears, despite tweaking a hamstring in practice Thursday, Sept. 28, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Jones has emerged as Detroit's go-to receiver, with 18 receptions for 408 yards and two touchdowns through his first three games this year. He has a very favorable matchup against a shaky Chicago defense and should be viewed as a WR1 in all fantasy formats.
