Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners holding out hope can officially cut bait on Marvin Jones. This is a big blow for the Bengals WR corps and QB Andy Dalton.

The Bengals website revealed that WR Marvin Jones may require surgery on the ankle he injured two weeks ago in practice. (Source: Bengals.com)

Fantasy Impact: If Jones does need surgery on his ankle, his season will likely be over. Fantasy owners who picked him up over the bye or have been holding onto him all season might need to start thinking about other options for their team down the home stretch.

WR Marvin Jones has officially been ruled out for Week 6. (Source: Bleacher Report)

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners hoping for a return to action will have to wait another week. With AJ Green highly unlikely to play this week also, Mohammed Sanu is in line for the lion's share of targets in Week 6. If he is available on your waiver wire, he might be worth a flex spot this week.

Bengals WR Marvin Jones has been officially listed as "questionable" for the Week 6 matchup with Carolina after injuring his ankle in practice last week. (Source: Stripe Hype)

Fantasy Impact: This is bad news for the Bengals, especially with the recent news that A.J. Green is likely out in Week 6, as well. Without his two leading wideouts, Andy Dalton will be forced to throw to Mohamed Sanu and Brandon Tate this week versus a tough Carolina D/ST. If desperate, both players might make for decent flex options in Week 6.

Marvin Jones tweaked his ankle in practice last Monday and was inactive for the Bengals' Week 5 matchup with New England. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Jones had been targeting Week 5 for his return from a pre-season foot injury. However, an ankle injury in practice last week kept him out of the lineup in New England. Jones will look to make his season debut in Week 6 against Carolina, but the ankle may not allow it. Jones makes for a sneaky waiver wire claim if he is available in your league, although you probably won't be starting him until he proves himself again.

Jones did not practice on Thursday. He has not practiced since tweaking his ankle on Monday. (Source: Coley Harvey on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Owners who have stashed Jones will likely need to wait one more week to see him in action. Assuming he plays in week 6, he would not be startable in any format until week 7. With no more than flex upside, Jones can safely be dropped for waiver-wire players with greater value. In the final eight weeks of the 2013 regular season, Jones averaged 5.7 tgts/gm, 43 yds/gm, and scored 3 total tds. Over three games this season, Mohammed Sanu is on an near-identical pace, with a 10 yds/gm uptick.

After returning to practice Monday, Marvin Jones tweaked his ankle and has not practiced since. He is questionable for the Sunday night game against the Patriots. (Source: Coley Harvey on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Those owners who have been stashing Jones will likely need to wait at least one more week to see him take the field. Assuming he sees the field in week 6, he won't be remotely startable in any format until week 7. With no more than Flex or bye-week WR2 upside, owners should not hesitate to drop him for someone valuable on the waiver wire. In the final eight regular-season games of 2013, Jones averaged 5.7 targets per game, 43 yds/gm, and scored three total tds. Jones' replacement, Mohammed Sanu, is on an almost identical pace through the first three games with a slight uptick in yds/gm.

WR Marvin Jones is set to return to practice this week for the Cincinnati Bengals. (Source: Cincy Jungle)

Fantasy Impact: Jones' return to practice sets him up for a Week 5 comeback against the New England Patriots. Jones figures to be the number 2 wide receiver for the Bengals, ahead of Mohammed Sanu. If he is available in your league, Jones has the making of a premium waiver wire claim.

Jones suffered the injury on Saturday and had a pin surgically placed in his left foot. The injury comes just five days after Jones returned to camp after dealing with an ankle issue. (Source: Geoff Hobson)

Fantasy Impact: The injury is a significant blow to Jones' fantasy value. Despite the party line that Jones will "miss a few weeks", there is some belief that Jones could potentially be out longer. The injury clearly opens the door for Mohamed Sanu to have a greater fantasy impact than originally anticipated.

Fantasy Impact: Jones is still seen as a late round flier, especially in deeper leagues. However, his injury is something that you should pay close attention to until he is able to practice with the team.

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues Owned in 24% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: Jones was a legitimate red zone threat for the Bengals in 2013, finding pay dirt 10 times. Although to be fair, four of those TDs came in one game. I still expect Jones to slide into that same type of offensive role when he […]
