Marvin Jones finds the end zone in Week 2

Marvin Jones snagged a five-yard TD from Matthew Stafford in the fourth quarter of the Lions 30-27 loss to the 49ers. Jones finished with five receptions for 54 yards on nine targets.

Fantasy Impact

For the second straight week, Kenny Golladay has had more receptions and yards than Jones. There may be a changing of the guard as the number two option in the Lions passing game with the emergence of Golladay in his second season. Jones will still get looks and have a big game here and there but it might be difficult for him to match his 1,101 yards and nine scores from last year. He could be a sell-high candidate after at least getting in the end zone this week.

Marvin Jones limited to 54 yards in Lions opener

Marvin Jones was only able to grab half of his eight targets on Monday night for 54 yards during the Lions 48-17 loss to the Jets.

Fantasy Impact

Jones was out-targeted by both Golden Tate and Kenny Golladay with the Lions trying to play from behind in the second half. The expanded looks to Golladay could be a potential concern for Jones but don't overreact to just one week.

Marvin Jones gets five targets in Friday's preseason game

Marvin Jones was targeted five times on Friday catching two balls for 14 yards during the Lions 30-17 loss to the Giants.

Fantasy Impact

Jones got in some work with Matthew Stafford and the first-team offense on Friday. Jones is currently going as the 24th WR off the board in PPR leagues in the fifth or sixth round as he looks to duplicate his breakout 2017 season that saw him set a career-best 18.0 YPC on his way to his first 1,000-yard season.

Marvin Jones posts 81 yards and score in season finale

Marvin Jones hauled in 4-of-5 targets for 81 yards in the Lions' 35-11 victory over the Packers in Week 17. Jones caught a 56-yard bomb in the first quarter and later caught a three-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter.

Fantasy Impact

Jones ends a very productive year with a season-high 1,101 receiving yards on 61 receptions with nine touchdowns. Jones really turned it on over the last 11 games with 917 yards and seven scores. Jones is in the middle of a five-year deal with the Lions and will look to continue his connection with Matthew Stafford next season.

Marvin Jones snags three balls for 50 yards in Lions' loss

Marvin Jones caught 3-of-5 targets for 50 yards in the Lions' 26-17 loss to the Bengals in Week 16. Jones had his longest catch in the third quarter to help set up a field goal.

Fantasy Impact

A disappointing return to Cincinnati for Jones with his lowest yardage output since Week 10. He did manage to top 1,000 yards for the season and will look to finish the season strong at home against the Packers in Week 17.
