If this isn't a week to play Marvin Jones, there's no week to play Marvin Jones. Upside WR3 option this week, or he's dead to me forever. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 Gage wasn't heavily targeted last week, but with the Falcons offense back to being a dynamic unit, Gage is an intriguing deep league FLEX option this week. The Lions are surrendering plenty of fantasy points to opposing slot wideouts and Gage could be a sneaky play.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Here are a few receivers who have more yardage than Jones on the year: Dontrelle Inman, Olamide Zaccheaus, Willie Snead, David Moore, Jalen Guyton, and Kalif Raymond. There are a lot more, as he ranked 91st in yards among receivers through six weeks. This game is the last hope for a resurgence. The Falcons have already allowed 11 different receivers to post top-36 numbers against them, so essentially two per game. Jones has seen at least five targets in 3-of-5 games this year, and knowing teams have thrown the ball 63.6 percent of the time against the Falcons, we should expect at least five targets in this game. The Falcons have allowed a massive 10.2 yards per target to wide receivers, and it's not on a small sample size anymore, as they've seen 128 targets, which ranks as the third-most in the league. They are who they are, but the question now is: Is Jones who he appears to be, or does he have a big game left? My gut tells me he's going to have a top-36 performance, but he has to be considered a WR4 with how poorly he's produced.I mentioned last week that if/when Jones came back to the lineup, it would help everyone involved in the Falcons offense. While Gage finished with just four targets last week, they amounted to four catches for 65 yards. He hasn't seen more than five targets since back in Week 2, which is worrisome when you're playing him for a floor and not necessarily a ceiling. It certainly helps that the Lions opponents have targeted their wide receivers 65.3 percent of the time, which is the second-highest mark in the league. It also helps to know that the Lions have been crushed by slot-heavy receivers. Here are the ones they've played through five games: Keelan Cole 6/143/0, Emmanuel Sanders 6/93/0, Andy Isabella/Larry Fitzgerald 5/47/2, Allen Lazard 3/45/0, and Anthony Miller 4/76/1. It's clearly a weakness between Darryl Roberts and Justin Coleman. Gage should be able to offer a WR4/5-type floor in this game.
