Lions | Marvin Jones limited

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.

Lions | Marvin Jones nearly invisible

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.

Lions | Limited practice for Marvin Jones

Thu, 03 Nov 2016 19:08:36 -0700

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.

Lions | Marvin Jones expected to play

Fri, 28 Oct 2016 15:56:28 -0700

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.

Lions | Marvin Jones misses practice

Wed, 26 Oct 2016 15:34:53 -0700

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.
