Marvin Jones posts 81 yards and score in season finale

Marvin Jones hauled in 4-of-5 targets for 81 yards in the Lions' 35-11 victory over the Packers in Week 17. Jones caught a 56-yard bomb in the first quarter and later caught a three-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter.

Fantasy Impact

Jones ends a very productive year with a season-high 1,101 receiving yards on 61 receptions with nine touchdowns. Jones really turned it on over the last 11 games with 917 yards and seven scores. Jones is in the middle of a five-year deal with the Lions and will look to continue his connection with Matthew Stafford next season.

Marvin Jones snags three balls for 50 yards in Lions' loss

Marvin Jones caught 3-of-5 targets for 50 yards in the Lions' 26-17 loss to the Bengals in Week 16. Jones had his longest catch in the third quarter to help set up a field goal.

Fantasy Impact

A disappointing return to Cincinnati for Jones with his lowest yardage output since Week 10. He did manage to top 1,000 yards for the season and will look to finish the season strong at home against the Packers in Week 17.

Marvin Jones posts team-high 85 yards in Week 15 win

Marvin Jones caught 3-of-5 targets for 85 yards during the Lions' 20-10 victory over the Bears on Saturday, including a long highlight grab over a Bears' defender for 58 yards in the second quarter.

Fantasy Impact

Jones has been limited to just three receptions in each of his last two games but has still been able to make enough big plays to top 60 yards in eight of his last nine games. He also hasn't been able to find the end zone in three straight games limiting his upside. Jones could be in for a big game next week when he returns to Cincinnati to face his former team the Bengals with the Lions trying to keep their playoff hope alive.

Marvin Jones limited to three grabs in Week 14

Marvin Jones was only targeted four times in Week 14 against the Buccaneers. He managed to put up 64 yards on three receptions including a long of 38 yards in the Lions' 24-21 victory.

Fantasy Impact

It was a pretty quiet day for Jones despite the favorable matchup against the Bucs. Targets were funneled to Golden Tate (nine) and Eric Ebron (10). Disappointing outing for Jones in the first week of the fantasy playoffs. If you did manage to survive with Jones in your lineup, just keep him there for another plus matchup in Week 15 at home against the Bears.

Marvin Jones notches 90 yards in Week 13 loss

Marvin Jones caught 4-of-8 targets for a team-high 90 yards during the Lions' 44-20 loss to the Ravens. Jones had a 42-yard reception on the opening drive of the second half to set up the Lions' first touchdown and a 46-yard grab in the fourth quarter.

Fantasy Impact

Jones has now topped 85 receiving yards in six of his last seven games and remains the top WR option for Matthew Stafford in the Lions' offense. Jones and the Lions get a favorable matchup for the passing game in Week 14 when they try to keep their playoff hopes alive in Tampa Bay.
