Jones isn't a PPR stud, but he sure was great on deep passes last season and finished as the fifth-best fantasy receiver in non-PPR and 11th in PPR. He'll have his inconsistencies as a home run hitter, but I think he's found a strong-armed quarterback to keep him in he fantasy points.

After seeing 107 targets in 2017, Jones' incredible touchdown rate propped him all the way up to the WR5 in standard leagues. He caught a touchdown once every 11.9 targets, which is almost double the average rate for wide receivers, which stands at one every 22.8 targets. After scoring just four touchdowns the prior season in the same offense, you have to wonder just how sustainable his touchdown total is. On top of that, the Lions continue to hype up Kenny Golladay, who is another big-bodied wide receiver to take away some of those looks. Jones is a solid fantasy asset, but don't pay for last year's numbers.

Jones was actually the 8th ranked fantasy wide receiver with 61 receptions for 1,101 yards and 9 touchdowns. He has a lot of talent and should at least be a WR2 in 2018, but the Lions will probably run the ball more in 2018.
