Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Marvin Jones was held to one catch for four yards and one carry for six yards in Week 4's win over the Kansas City Chiefs .
Jones was targeted just twice, as Andy Dalton effectively spread the ball around to multiple targets. Jones was targeted on one other deep ball, that he dropped.
Cincinnati Bengals receiver Mohamed Sanu had four catches for 84 yards in the Sunday victory over Kansas City. He was targeted six times.
Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton effectively spread the ball around to multiple receivers in the game, and Sanu happened to be open more frequently than teammate Marvin Jones this week. Next week the Bengals face a tough test against Seattle that might limit Sanu's productivity.
After a pair of relatively quiet weeks, Jones set season-highs in targets, catches and yards in Sunday's game.
He now has scored in back-to-back games, illustrating the red zone skills that earned him 10 touchdowns in his last full season.
Although Cincinnati generally uses a run-first approach, quarterback Andy Dalton has started the season in exceptional form and Jones could stand to benefit. Week 4 will pit Jones and company against the Chiefs, who have allowed the most fantasy points to opposing receivers this season.
Jones was on the field for 53 snaps, more than teammate Mohamed Sanu (27 snaps). The Bengals face Baltimore in Week 3, and the Ravens gave up over 300 passing yards to the Raiders in Week 2, so Jones might be able to contribute a little more.
"We looked at it, got it fixed, and it's not there anymore," Jones said. "It was an unfortunate situation, but it's behind me."
Jones was able to participate in the team's minicamp in June without any issues.
"That's what this [camp] was for," he said. "Just getting out there and playing football against other people and not thinking about it. It's been a great opportunity for me to go out there and get the feel back. I got it back and it's just been great."
