Despite falling comfortably behind Golden Tate and Kenny Golladay as Detroit's third wheel, Jones still leads the team with eight red-zone targets. He proved the epitome of touchdown dependent by securing his only catch for an 8-yard touchdown in Week 5, but he recorded at least 54 yards in the other four contests. While he's a risky play with Xavien Howard lurking, Miami's defense is regressing after stymieing weaker offenses.

Jones has scored a touchdown in three of his last four games, he is a WR3 against the Dolphins secondary.

Detroit's struggling defense should be conducive for the Lions to continue to put up excellent weekly passing numbers but Jones is in danger of slipping past both Golden Tate and sophomore Kenny Golladay. Even with that, Jones remains a quality WR2 on a week-to-week basis.
