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.

Lions | Marvin Jones unlikely to play

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.

Lions | Marvin Jones' status in question

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.

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.
