Marvin Jones goes for 43 yards in win

Marvin Jones caught five of six passes for 43 yards in the Lions’ 13-10 win over the Chargers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Jones finished the afternoon with just 43 receiving yards, bringing his total to 99 yards through two games. He won't provide consistent numbers on a weekly basis, but Jones remains a risk/reward flex option due to his big play ability and involvement in the offense.

Marvin Jones goes for 56 yards against Cardinals

Marvin Jones caught all four of his targets for 56 yards in the Lions’ 27-27 tie with the Cardinals on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Jones had a quiet game and was clearly fourth on the totem pole in terms of target distribution. He's a low-end flex option in good matchups this season in an offense that features some skilled pass-catchers.

Marvin Jones totals seven yards in loss

Marvin Jones brought in one of three targets for seven yards in the Lions' 24-20 loss to the Bills on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Jones saw the field briefly in Friday's loss, though he didn't do much. He projects to start in two-wide sets opposite Kenny Golladay this season and makes an interesting mid-round pick, especially in best ball formats.

Marvin Jones (knee) misses entire off-season program

Marvin Jones (knee) missed the Lions' entire off-season program.

Fantasy Impact

Jones missed the end of last season with a bone bruise in his knee. He got in some side work during OTAs but was never fully cleared to practice. He remains on track for training camp but can no longer be viewed as the team's number one wideout with Kenny Golladay's recent ascension.

Marvin Jones to be placed on IR

The Lions are placing Marvin Jones (knee) on IR, according to Dave Birkett.

Fantasy Impact

This is a pretty big surprise, considering there was an earlier report that there was optimism that Jones would return in Week 13 against the Rams. In what is now a lost season, there was little reason for the Lions to push Jones, so they'll go the conservative route and rest him. Bruce Ellington should continue to see work, while Kenny Golladay and Theo Riddick should dominate the targets for the Lions going forward.
