Lions | Minnesota mashed by Marvin Jones

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 13:40:52 -0800

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.

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.
