Lions | T.J. Jones relegated to backup offense

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 14:32:25 -0700

Detroit Lions WR T.J. Jones ran with the second-team offense during practice Friday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: Jones was in the running to be the slot receiver before Anquan Boldin signed with Detroit. Jones is now more of a wait-and-see fantasy option than late-round flier, but he's still a receiver to keep tabs on leading into the season.

Lions | T.J. Jones could start in the slot

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 19:34:25 -0700

Detroit Lions WR T.J. Jones has seen plenty of practice times as the slot receiver with the first-team offense during the offseason, and he been able to create consistent separation.

Fantasy Tip: There will be a lot of extra targets to go around in the Detroit passing game with Calvin Johnson out of the picture. Jones is worth keeping an eye on.

Lions | Jeremy Kerley favored for No. 3 WR?

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 11:05:38 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Jeremy Kerley is expected to be the Lions' No. 3 wide receiver behind WRs Golden Tate and Marvin Jones and ahead of WR T.J. Jones.

Fantasy Tip: Tate, Jones, Theo Riddick and Eric Ebron will likely be the main targets in Detroit's offense with Calvin Johnson gone. Kerley and Jones are only worth a flier in deeper leagues.

Lions | Two will compete for Lions' No. 3 WR job

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 10:15:20 -0700

Detroit Lions WRs Jeremy Kerley (undisclosed) and T.J. Jones are expected to compete for the No. 3 receiver job during training camp even though Kerley missed some offseason workouts because of an undisclosed injury.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Kerley or Jones has an advantage in the competition, so owners will need to keep an eye on the situation. Neither player likely will be a strong fantasy option. but the winner should have some value as a late-round option in deeper leagues.

Lions | T.J. Jones on the verge of a breakout?

Sat, 28 May 2016 12:38:29 -0700

Detroit Lions WR T.J. Jones was "one of the obvious stars" in a recent organized team activity on Thursday, May 26, and has earned praised from head coach Jim Caldwell and QB Matthew Stafford for his offseason work.

Fantasy Tip: Even though Marvin Jones will absorb a good chunk of the 150 targets left behind by Calvin Johnson, there is going to be room for a player like T.J. Jones to make some noise for Detroit post-Megatron. The Lions also added Jeremy Kerley as a free agent, but he is primarily a slot receiver - a spot Golden Tate usually occupies in three-wide sets. As such, T.J. Jones is a name owners in all leagues should keep on their watch lists this season.

Lions | Ameer Abdullah fumbling away job?

Sun, 11 Oct 2015 19:49:35 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah was replaced by RB Zach Zenner and replaced as kick returner by WR T.J. Jones after fumbling twice in the first half against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 5. He finished with six carries for 17 yards and one catch for nine yards.

Fantasy Tip: Abdullah ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) needs to figure out how to hold on to the ball, or he is going to continue to lose playing time. Joique Bell could ultimately benefit, but while Bell is injured, Zach Zenner ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is the other option for carries. Of course, the entire Detroit rushing attack is struggling, so none of the team's backs are great plays at FantasyScore.
