Marvin Jones catches five-yard TD in second preseason game

Marvin Jones and the Lions starters played into the second quarter of their second preseason game on Saturday. Jones had four receptions for 34 yards and a hauled in a five-yard score from Matthew Stafford in the second quarter of the 16-6 win over the Jets.

Fantasy Impact

Jones had 55 catches for 930 yards and four touchdowns in his first season with the Lions last year. After a strong start the first three weeks, he faded as the season progressed. Jones will start at WR opposite Golden Tate when the season begins but could get pushed by Kenny Golladay as the season progresses. Jones is currently ranked as the #51 WR on our ECR.

Marvin Jones worked out with Randy Moss this offseason

In a recent interview with ESPN, Marvin Jones talked about his struggles last season that led him to working out with Randy Moss during the offseason to "re-evaluate the little things" he was doing.

Fantasy Impact

It's been an extremely quiet offseason for Jones, who has taken a backseat to the hype for rookie wide receiver Kenny Golladay. Working out with Moss is most definitely not a bad thing, as we've seen him turn wide receivers career's around before. Jones was drafted as a top-30 wide receiver last year and came out of the gate hot. He was the No. 3 fantasy wide receiver after six weeks, behind only Antonio Brown and Julio Jones. The fact that he showed that ceiling in an offense that just lost Anquan Boldin, it's quite possible that everyone is underestimating Jones' potential. He's shaping up as a low-risk, high-reward option in 2017.

Marvin Jones steps up against Seattle

Marvin Jones corralled 4 of 7 targets against the Seahawks for 81 receiving yards.

Fantasy Impact

A touchdown would've made Marvin Jones's moderately productive night quite a bit sweeter, but can't that be said for any fantasy player? Ultimately, he had the best night of Lions receivers and his performances these last two weeks are a good reminder that Jones was incredibly productive to begin the season before injuries affected his game. With a healthy quarterback, repaired body, and another year in Detroit's system, Marvin Jones has nice upside for the 2017 season.

Marvin Jones has modest production against Packers

Marvin Jones caught 5 of 9 targets on Sunday night and totaled 76 receiving yards.

Fantasy Impact

Jones' production against Green Bay was a modest step up from last few weeks but still nothing for fantasy owners to drool over. It was his biggest night since Week 7 as he followed up one of fantasy's fastest starts with eight straight weeks without a touchdown or 90 yards receiving. DFS players should avoid Jones against the Seahawks in the wild-card round and redraft players should think of Jones as a lower-end flex or higher-end bench player during their off-season prep.

Marvin Jones disappears in Dallas

Marvin Jones was targeted seven times Monday night, but only caught one ball for 16 yards.

Fantasy Impact

After a stretch of games with moderate production, Jones fell off and failed to make an impact against the Cowboys, losing 50-50 balls and, admittedly, receiving a lot of attention from Dallas's secondary. Jones has one more week to try and get right, but, at this point, his fellow receivers Golden Tate and Anquan Boldin are better fantasy options.
