Lions' Marvin Jones: Focused on lower-body strength and YAC
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones spent part of the offseason training with Randy Moss, who emphasized the importance of lower-body strength and running routes in a manner that maximizes yards after the catch, Tim Twentyman of DetroitLions.com reports.

Jones might also consider talking to teammate Golden Tate, who led all NFL wideouts with 635 yards after the catch (7.0 per reception) last year. Jones produced a middling average of 4.3 YAC in what ultimately was a disappointing first season in Detroit, with 408 of his 930 receiving yards coming within the first three weeks. Coach Jim Caldwell is optimistic Jones will be more consistent -- something the Lions seems to be counting on, given that they didn't sign a veteran replacement for Anquan Boldin. Already established as a deep threat after producing 16.9 yards per catch last season, Jones seemingly hopes that improved route running as well as the addition of some lower-body muscle onto his wiry frame will help him contribute more in the short/intermediate passing game.

Lions' Marvin Jones: Leading receiver in playoff loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones caught four of seven targets for 81 yards during Saturday's postseason loss to the Seahawks.

Jones was the Lions' leading receiver Saturday, but that doesn't mean he played a flawless game. In fact, one of his miscues was a drop that would have gone for a big play and allow Detroit to gain some much-needed offensive momentum. Still, Jones' 81 receiving yards nonetheless represented his highest total since Week 7 and reminded owners of the fourth-year wideout's ability to get open down the field, a notion some may have forgotten since his fast start to the season in which Jones averaged 120.5 yards per game in the first four weeks of the season and just 37.3 in each tilt thereafter. He'll now enter his first offseason as a member of the Lions possessing status as the team's clear deep threat, although an admittedly inconsistent fantasy option.

Lions' Marvin Jones: Goes deep against Packers
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Jones hauled in five of nine passes for 76 yards in Sunday's loss to Green Bay.

Jones registered two catches of 20 or more yards down the stretch of Sunday's game, the continuation of a welcomed change of pace. Jones started off 2016 with nine catches of 20 or more yards in his first three games but has followed up with just seven since -- five coming in the last five weeks. The dynamic receiver will need to deliver a few more big plays if Detroit hopes to pull off the upset in Seattle.

Lions' Marvin Jones: Forgettable outing against Cowboys
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones caught just one of seven targets for 16 yards Monday night against the Cowboys.

Lions QB Matthew Stafford had a rough day, but some of the blame falls on Jones' shoulders. The two simply were unable to get on the same page. Jones' seven targets were tied for second-most on the team though and his highest amount since Week 11. In what's been a disappointing turnout to a once-promising campaign, Jones will look to finish the season strong against a Packers defense that has allowed the fourth-most passing yards in the league.

Lions' Marvin Jones: Catches three passes Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Jones caught three of five targets for 41 yards in Sunday's 17-6 loss to the Giants.

Although Jones looked the part of the Lions' No. 1 wide receiver during the beginning of the year, it's crystal clear at this point in the season that distinction belongs to Golden Tate. Jones wasn't even targeted until after halftime Sunday and garnered just five looks in total -- compared to 13 for Tate -- on a day when his quarterback attempted 39 passes. Nonetheless, his prowess catching bombs down the field could come in handy this weekend when Detroit attempts to keep pace with a Dallas team that boasts one of the most consistently effective offenses in the league.
