2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
Filling the shoes of a perennial fantasy stud will certainly be a tall order for Marvin Jones, the Lions newest addition at wideout. Jones had a nice season last year for Cincinnati as he returned from a foot injury that cost him the entire 2014 season. As the third and sometimes fourth option in the passing game last year for the Bengals, Jones racked up a solid 65-816-4 line. Nothing about his final stats or weekly numbers pop off the page, but he finished as a WR3/4. More importantly, he scored 10 touchdowns in the season prior to his foot injury, and his size and frame should give him a prominent role, especially in the red zone. Listen, no one is replacing Megatron’s annual 1300 yards and 12-plus touchdowns, but the opportunities will be there for Jones to set career highs in yards and catches. My biggest concern with his statistical output is the fact he failed to have big games, even when facing single coverage due to the presence of A.J. Green and Tyler Eifert. Other than a 12-target game at Buffalo in Week 6, Jones either never seemed to be a big part of the game plan, or simply couldn’t get open enough. Golden Tate is going to lead this team in catches, but Jones has a chance to make an impact for your fantasy team, although I’d be hard pressed to have him as anything more than a mid-level WR3.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Not looking good for Marvin Jones
Expected to sit with thigh injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Dec 4, 8:15 am

Detroit Lions
Lions WR Marvin Jones (thigh) is a long-shot to play vs. Saints, source said. Promoting WR TJ Jones from the practice squad spoke to that (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: WR T.J. Jones has been called up from the practice squad giving an indication that Marvin will be on the Inactive list today. If he sits, expect Golden Tate, Eric Ebron, Theo Riddick and Anquan Boldin to receive the most targets from Matthew Stafford against the Saints.


Injury Marvin Jones back at practice Friday
Hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 30, 12:30 pm

Detroit Lions
Detroit Lions receiver Marvin Jones was practicing with the team on Friday, just one day after he popped up on the team's injury report with a hamstring problem. Jones was limited on Thursday by the injury, but seemed fine while working out with the other receivers during the 15 or so minutes of practice that were open to the media. (MLive.com)

FFToday's Take: Jones inclusion on the injury report yesterday raised eyebrows of fantasy owners. It seems like he'll be good to go but check reports later this weekend for confirmation. He'll be a WR1 if he plays against Chicago.


Injury Marvin Jones shows up on injury report
Limited practice; hamstring injury
By: Doug Orth | Thu Sep 29, 7:50 pm

Detroit Lions
Marvin Jones is on Thursday’s injury report as a limited participant in practice after not being on the report at all after Wednesday’s practice. That suggests that Jones may have come down with the injury during practice and will make Friday’s practice one to watch for a better idea about how much the hamstring might affect him against the Chicago Bears on Sunday. (Pro Football Talk)

FFToday's Take: The WR1 after three weeks, Jones will need to get a full practice in on Friday in order to quell fears of him missing time against the Bears in Week 4. If he is forced to sit out, Anquan Boldin and Golden Tate become much better fantasy options against Chicago's shell of a defense, while Eric Ebron could also be nearing must-start territory as well.
