Marvin Jones Jr. stepping away from football, released by Detorit

Lions WR Marvin Jones Jr. announced today that he is stepping away from football to take care of family matters. The Lions have announced his release.

Fantasy Impact

Jones did not play Sunday as he was attending to a personal matter and will now be a free agent, but is unlikely to return this season. Fantasy managers can move Jones to their league’s waiver wire and pick up another option for the remainder of the season.

Marvin Jones Jr. (personal) won't play Sunday

Marvin Jones Jr. (personal) won't play in Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Impact

Jones is not traveling with the team to Baltimore and has officially been ruled out for Sunday's game. He's dealing with personal issues of some kind, although what exactly that means is unclear as of now. He hasn't been productive this year and his absence doesn't carry large fantasy implications in Week 7.

Marvin Jones Jr. hauls in two passes in Week 5

Marvin Jones Jr. caught both of his targets for 22 yards in the Lions' 42-24 win over the Carolina Panthers in Week 5.

Fantasy Impact

Jones Jr. has offered inconsistent output to begin the season as part of a revamped Detroit passing offense, catching passes in just two of five games to begin the season for the club. The veteran wideout should continue to sit on the waiver wire in most formats for fantasy owners, especially with No. 1 pass-catcher Amon-Ra St. Brown likely to return in Week 6 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Marvin Jones Jr. Stumbles Out of the Gate in Week 1 Victory

Marvin Jones Jr. had a less-than-stellar start to the season in a 21-20 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact

The 33-year-old wide receiver for the Detroit Lions was targeted six times, but only managed to reel in two receptions for a meager eight yards. His performance was further marred by a costly fumble in the second quarter, which was recovered by the Chiefs. Looking ahead, he'll be hoping to bounce back against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 2.

Marvin Jones Jr. removed from NFI list Monday

The Lions activated Marvin Jones from the non-football injury list Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Jones is set to practice for the first time in training camp Monday. He reportedly had a minor back injury that caused him to miss the first week of camp, but is good to go now. The 33-year-old ranks as WR94 in ECR, according to FantasyPros.
