2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
In a battle of Jones receivers, it was Marvin who got the best of Julio in last season's standard scoring rankings. He also bested my personal projects by a ton, finishing as a solid and fairly consistent WR1. So what the heck exactly happened last season? Touchdowns and big plays, the two things really lacking in his first season with the Lions in 2016. His 61 receptions were good for only 29th in the league, but his 1,101 yards (9th) and 9 touchdowns (tied for 3rd) boosted his value into the stratosphere. The biggest benefit to having Jones on your fantasy team last year was that these numbers were spread out over 16 games fairly evenly, making him a rare consistent big play threat. But there are a few reasons why I think this big finish is an aberration. First, the offense in general is more balanced, and has a wider array of playmakers. Backfield additions and the health and development of Golladay should keep Jones's target and reception totals fairly muted. He's been between 103-107 targets and 55-65 catches for three straight seasons, and I don't expect a deviation from those numbers in either direction. What I do expect a drop off is in touchdowns. Despite elite body control and hands, there will be other red zone options this time around, and I think he settles into the 5-6 score range. If you are careful not to chase his 2017 numbers and overdraft him, Marvin Jones should provide some decent WR2 value for your team.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Marvin Jones ruled out
Knee injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 16, 3:35 pm

Detroit Lions
Marvin Jones, as expected, ruled out for Sunday. (Dave Birkett on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: With Jones out, the Lions will be thin at the wide receiver position with Kenny Golladay leading the group. Expect running back Theo Riddick to so more work in the slot and be a cheap PPR flier in DFS contests.


Injury Marvin Jones misses practice Thursday
Knee injury

Detroit Lions
Lions practiced outside in the snow today. Still no Marvin Jones Jr., Michael Roberts or A’Shawn Robinson at the open portion of practice. (Tim Twentyman on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Jones (knee) missed practice on Wednesday as well, making him questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers. The Lions are thin at receiver with Brandon Powell and T.J. Jones attempting to fill the slot position. Kenny Golladay is shaping up to be the primary receiving option in Week 11.


Injury Marvin Jones day to day with bone bruise
ACL and MCL are intact
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Nov 12, 1:30 pm

Detroit Lions
Tests showed that Lions’ WR Marvin Jones’ ACL and MCL are intact, but he did sustain a bone bruise and will be considered day to day, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Jones saw 7 targets resulting in 3 catches for 55 yards before leaving late in the third quarter. The Lions will be short-handed at receiver if he's not able to go in Week 11 against the Panthers.
