  • Jones caught one of two targets for 22 yards during Sunday's 38-24 victory over the Browns. Jones' two targets tied for the lowest he's seen all season and corresponds with rookie Kenny Golladay's return from a hamstring injury. Coming off a three-week stretch in which Jones found the end zone three times while averaging 12 targets and 110.3 receiving yards per game, many fantasy owners were likely expecting a bigger game in such a favorable matchup. However, with Golladay back in the fold, Jones isn't the Lions' only deep threat anymore. Thus, Jones could continue to see fewer opportunities down the field going forward.

  • Lions' Marvin Jones: Scores twice at Lambeau
    By RotoWire Staff

    Jones caught seven of 11 targets for 107 yards and two touchdowns in Monday night's 30-17 win over the Packers. Jones hauled in a 25-yard touchdown on Detroit's opening offensive drive, then caught an 11-yard score to put the game away in the fourth quarter. In doing so, Jones once again found pay dirt twice in Green Bay, where he ripped off 205 yards and two touchdowns in his visit last season. Averaging over six catches and 110 yards over his past three games, Jones will look to keep it rolling in a favorable Week 10 matchup versus the Browns.

  • Lions' Marvin Jones: Passes century mark
    By RotoWire Staff

    Jones caught six passes on 11 targets for 128 yards during Sunday's 20-15 loss to the Steelers. Even with Golden Tate active and in the starting lineup, Jones was easily Detroit's most effective playmaker Sunday against a Steelers defense that entered the game with a league-best 5.6 yards per pass attempt. However, this marks just his first 100-yard performance of the year and third since joining the Lions prior to the 2016 season. Furthermore, Jones has only seen double-digit targets four times in that same time frame. When he hasn't seen that kind of workload in other games this season, Jones is only averaging 30.6 receiving yards per game.

  • Lions' Marvin Jones: Paces receivers in Week 5 loss
    By RotoWire Staff

    Jones brought in six of eight targets for 54 yards in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Panthers. Jones was targeted by quarterback Matthew Stafford early and often, notching season highs in receptions, targets and receiving yards in the process. The 27-year-old wideout's production usually takes a back seat to that of position mate Golden Tate, but Jones certainly has the size and speed to break out in any given week, as he demonstrated on multiple occasions early last season. He'll look to provide that caliber of production when the Lions tangle with the Saints in a potential Week 6 road shootout.

  • Lions' Marvin Jones: Leads team in receiving
    By RotoWire Staff

    Jones caught two of five passes for 42 yards during Sunday's 14-7 victory over the Vikings. Despite receiving a hefty dose of 2016 Pro Bowl CB Xavier Rhodes, Jones still managed to post a season-high in receiving yardage while tying for the team lead in targets. However, that's not saying much as he only logged 42 yards, and three other receivers (Golden Tate, TJ Jones, Darren Fells) saw just as many looks. As long as QB Matthew Stafford continues to spread the ball around as much as he does, there doesn't figure to be much upside for any Lions wideout on a consistent basis, Jones included. Next week probably won't be any different when Detroit takes on a Carolina team that has allowed the seventh-fewest passing yards per game through four weeks.
