Marvin Jones puts up 96 yards and a score in Week 6

Marvin Jones had his best game of the season on Sunday with six grabs for 96 yards and a touchdown during the Lions' 52-38 loss to the Saints in Week 6. Jones' touchdown came on a 22-yard connection with Matthew Stafford in the third quarter.

Fantasy Impact

Jones became the top target for Stafford after Golden Tate (shoulder) exited the game in the third quarter. Jones was targeted a season-high 14 times as Stafford attempted 52 passes during the Lions' comeback effort. Jones and the Lions will be on bye in Week 7 before returning the field against the Steelers in Week 8.

Marvin Jones nets season-high in targets, receptions and yards in Week 5

Marvin Jones saw a season-high eight targets in Week 5 resulting in six receptions for 54 yards in the Lions' 27-24 loss to the Panthers.

Fantasy Impact

Jones was busy on Sunday with the Matthew Stafford throwing 35 passes in a late comeback attempt. Despite hitting season-high marks in targets, receptions and yards, Jones' fantasy day was still mediocre without a touchdown. Jones may be worth consideration as a Week 6 fill-in for bye weeks with a solid matchup against the Saints in New Orleans.

Marvin Jones leads team with 42 receiving yards in Week 4

Marvin Jones led the team with 42 receiving yards on two catches during the Lions' 14-7 Week 4 victory over the Vikings. Jones was targeted five times.

Fantasy Impact

Matthew Stafford spread out the targets in Week 4 with six different receivers getting either four of five passes thrown their way. Jones had one long catch for 38 yards at the end of the first quarter that helped set up a field goal. The 42 yards by Jones was a season-high. He should remain on the waiver wire or the bench in all fantasy leagues for the Lions' Week 5 matchup with the Panthers.

Marvin Jones tallies 24 yards in Lions' Week 3 loss

Marvin Jones was targeted six times, catching three for 24 yards during the Lions' 30-26 loss to the Falcons in Week 3.

Fantasy Impact

The six targets were a season-high for the 27-year-old WR, however, this was the first time this season he failed to reach the end zone. Without scoring, Jones does not get enough volume (13 targets through three games) in the Lions' offense to be a weekly starter in fantasy leagues. He is best left as a bye week fill-in. Jones will face the Vikings in Week 4. In two games versus the Vikings last season, he totaled just five catches for 59 yards.

Marvin Jones scores touchdown on Monday night

Marvin Jones only caught one of his five targets on Monday night but he made it count for a 27-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter during the Lions' 24-10 win over the Giants.

Fantasy Impact

Two games and two touchdowns for Jones. However, the touchdowns are masking his lack of involvement in the offense so far this season with only a total of three catches for 64 yards through the first two games. He could get more opportunities in Week 3 as the Lions' offense tries to keep pace with the high-flying Falcons.
