After he was going back and forth with Golladay as the 1A and 1B last year, Jones has clearly faded into the No. 2 option this year. He's seen in-between 4-6 targets in 4-of-5 games with a nine-target game mixed in between. His average depth of target is two full yards higher than Golladay's, so he'll be more of the boom-or-bust variety regardless of the target numbers. He's likely going to be covered by Trae Waynes this week, the speedy Vikings cornerback who has done a great job keeping the play in front of him this year, allowing just 9.6 yards per reception in his coverage. He's allowed just one play of more than 26 yards (went for 37 yards) on 40 targets in coverage this year. You'll want to consider Jones in games the Lions are forced into shootouts against reverse funnel defenses, but this isn't one of them, making him nothing more than a boom-or-bust WR5.

Marvin Jones goes for only 17 yards in loss

Marvin Jones caught two of five targets for 17 yards in the Lions’ 23-22 loss to the Packers on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Jones crashed to earth in this one, accounting for just 17 yards. Given the strength of Green Bay’s secondary, better days are likely ahead for Jones who will look to bounce back next week against Minnesota.
