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.

Marvin Jones held to just three receptions in Week 15

Marvin Jones recorded three receptions for 41 yards against the Giants. He was targeted five times.

Fantasy Impact

Marvin Jones continues to struggle as Golden Tate is now getting most of the attention from Matthew Stafford. He has 10 targets in his last three games and still has big play potential. Facing a weak Dallas pass defense in Week 16 makes him a viable daily play for a cheap price.

Marvin Jones leads Lions' receivers in win

Marvin Jones caught 4 of 5 targets for 67 yards on Sunday afternoon.

Fantasy Impact

Jones was clutch for the Lions when they needed him to be, reeling in a 48-yard bomb on a broken play and providing a couple important, though fantasy irrelevant, pass interference penalties. It's tough to say whether or not Jones will be able to muster the sorts of performances that made him an early-season phenomenon, but he's clearly healthier than the middle of the season when he nearly disappeared from the stat sheet. Jones is the second most targeted Lions' wide receiver but also acts as the team's deep threat, making him a low-floor, high-ceiling flex option against a capable Giants' secondary in Week 14.
