Marvin Jones limited to three grabs in Week 14

Marvin Jones was only targeted four times in Week 14 against the Buccaneers. He managed to put up 64 yards on three receptions including a long of 38 yards in the Lions' 24-21 victory.

Fantasy Impact

It was a pretty quiet day for Jones despite the favorable matchup against the Bucs. Targets were funneled to Golden Tate (nine) and Eric Ebron (10). Disappointing outing for Jones in the first week of the fantasy playoffs. If you did manage to survive with Jones in your lineup, just keep him there for another plus matchup in Week 15 at home against the Bears.

Marvin Jones notches 90 yards in Week 13 loss

Marvin Jones caught 4-of-8 targets for a team-high 90 yards during the Lions' 44-20 loss to the Ravens. Jones had a 42-yard reception on the opening drive of the second half to set up the Lions' first touchdown and a 46-yard grab in the fourth quarter.

Fantasy Impact

Jones has now topped 85 receiving yards in six of his last seven games and remains the top WR option for Matthew Stafford in the Lions' offense. Jones and the Lions get a favorable matchup for the passing game in Week 14 when they try to keep their playoff hopes alive in Tampa Bay.

Marvin Jones gobbles up 109 yards and two scores on Thanksgiving day loss

Marvin Jones was the star on offense for the Lions on Thanksgiving with six catches for 109 yards and two touchdowns during a 30-23 loss to the Vikings. Jones caught his first TD pass from six yards out late in the first half and then caught a deep 43-yard connection between two defenders in the fourth quarter.

Fantasy Impact

Jones has 16 catches for 194 yards and three touchdowns over the last two weeks and has topped 100 yards in three of his last five games. He appears to have taken over as the top target for Matthew Stafford as the season has progressed and is a must-start in leagues that start three WRs, even in a tough matchup with the Ravens in Week 13.

Marvin Jones snags 28-yard touchdown in Week 11 win

Marvin Jones led the Lions with 85 receiving yards on four catches including a 28-yard touchdown reception in the second quarter during the Lions' 27-24 victory in Chicago. Jones tied for the team lead in targets with seven.

Fantasy Impact

Jones reeled in his sixth touchdown reception of the season in Week 11 as he bounced back nicely from a one-catch performance in Week 10. He continues to be a solid contributor and worth consideration as a starting WR on a weekly basis. Jones and the Lions' welcome the Vikings to Detroit on Thanksgiving.

Marvin Jones posts a dud

Receiver Marvin Jones, after catching two touchdowns last week, was able to haul in just one catch for 22 yards in the Lions' 38-24 victory over the Browns.

Fantasy Impact

Marvin (50 of 52 plays) actually out-snapped Golden Tate (39 of 52 plays), but it was the latter that was more involved. Jones and the Lions get the Bears next week.
