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.

Lions | Marvin Jones won't play in Week 13

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.
