Even with A.J. Green being double and triple teamed, Jones never received for over 100 yards in a game last season and only pulled in four touchdowns. At age 26, we know exactly who he is and it is a decent bench player. Don't make the mistake of thinking more of him. At this point, he is being drafted too high, especially considering the Lions' signing of Boldin, who is a more complete receiver.

Marvin Jones secured four of his five targets, accumulating 65 receiving yards, the most of any Lions receiver in the second preseason game.

Fantasy Impact: The Lions fell to the Bengals, but the Stafford to Jones connection looked promising. Reports out of camp last week suggested that Jones will emerge as the #1 receiving target in Detroit, and this very well may come true. Jones' current ADP of 85 overall significantly undervalues his fantasy potential, so keep an eye on him in your drafts as a 6th-7th round steal.

I've always loved Jones' ability, and now he'll get a chance to put it to work in a pass-heavy offense as the No. 1 receiver. He'll split targets with Golden Tate, but he has four inches on Tate and is the more consistent red-zone target

Has thoroughly outplayed Tate this preseason for WR1 honors.
