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. He averaged just 5.3 targets per game with Golladay in the lineup, but 9.8 targets per game when he was held out. He's going to have some big games, but he'll likely have to share the stage with Golladay at times.

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.
