    Lions' Marvin Jones: Working out with younger teammates

    Marvin Jones (ankle) acknowledged on Twitter that he recently hosted Detroit Lions rookie Quintez Cephus and free agent signee Victor Bolden for workouts at his residence.Jones spent the final three games of last season on injured reserve due to an ankle injury. Considering he was seen planting and cutting on both of his ankles in the video he posted, it seems the 30-year-old is getting back to full health. Jones, in a contract year -- along with Kenny Golladay and Danny Amendola -- is also giving the Detroit front office plenty of reason to keep him around -- n spite of his age and contract status -- given his displays of leadership.

    Lions' Marvin Jones: Out for season

    Marvin Jones (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Michael Rothstein of reports.Coach Matt Patricia told Rothstein that Jones injured his ankle on the final possession of the Detroit Lions' Week 14 loss at Minnesota. Apparently, the issue is severe enough to keep Jones sidelined for the remainder of the season, which is a fate that has befallen him for the second straight year. Overall, he hauled in 62 of 91 targets for 779 yards and nine touchdowns in 13 games in 2019. In Jones' absence, Kenny Golladay figures to be even more prominent in the passing attack, while Danny Amendola and (to a lesser extent) Chris Lacy experience elevated roles.

    Lions' Marvin Jones: Held in check

    Marvin Jones hauled in three of seven targets for 38 yards in the team's Week 14 loss to the Vikings.Jones racked up seven targets but managed to convert fewer than half into receptions. His longest gain of the day came midway through the first quarter, when he hauled in an 18-yard reception down the right sideline. On a positive note, Jones has shown some rapport with third-string quarterback David Blough, racking up 13 targets in two games with Blough under center. Jones will draw an exploitable matchup in Week 15 as the Detroit Lions take on the Buccaneers.

    Lions' Marvin Jones: Catches another touchdown

    Marvin Jones caught three of six targets for 40 yards and one touchdown during Thursday's 24-20 loss to the Bears.News that Detroit would be turning to its third-string quarterback understandably made it hard to trust Jones against a tough Chicago team, but the veteran wideout put up a respectable fantasy total nonetheless thanks to his outstanding red-zone prowess. In fact, Thursday's touchdown marked Jones ninth score in 12 games this season and he only needs one more to match his career high of 10 touchdowns from the 2013 campaign with Cincinnati. Combined with his upside to rack up triple-digit receiving yards like he did in Week 3 and Week 9, Jones has been one of the most underrated fantasy assets in 2019 and up next is a Vikings team that Jones obliterated for 10 catches, 93 yards and four touchdowns back in Week 7.

    Lions' Marvin Jones: Targeted 11 times in loss

    Marvin Jones caught five of 11 targets for 46 yards during Sunday's 19-16 loss to Washington.Jones, like the Detroit Lions' offense has a whole, has missed Matthew Stafford (back), but the veteran wide receiver has made the most of playing with backup Jeff Driskel, enjoying a team-high 21 targets in Driskel's three starts. Driskel showed Sunday that he's willing to force the ball to Jones, sometimes to the Lions' advantage -- such as on a 14-yard sideline throw to set up a field goal just before halftime -- and sometimes to the team's detriment, such as on an ill-timed interception in the closing moments of the game that sparked Washington's win. Though Stafford has voiced his hope to play again this season, Jones will still be working with Driskel Thursday against a Bears defense that surrendered 77 yards on five catches to Jones in Week 9.

    Lions' Marvin Jones: Catches two TD passes vs. Dallas

    Marvin Jones caught four of five targets for 53 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 35-27 loss to the Cowboys.Jones tied for the team lead in targets but finished averaging an atypical 10.8 yards per catch. He ruggedly found his way into the end zone from 11 yards out in the third quarter and added a 25-yard score in the fourth, keeping his team in a game it was expected to lose handily. Jones now has seven touchdowns in his last five games and seems able to produce even with Jeff Driskel under center. He could have room to flourish next Sunday against the Redskins and will possess even greater upside if Matthew Stafford (back) is cleared to return to the lineup.

    Lions' Marvin Jones: Not impacted by Stafford's absence

    Marvin Jones caught five of six targets for a team-high 77 yards in Sunday's 20-13 loss to the Bears.It was encouraging to see Jones post a typical stat line with Jeff Driskel filling in for Matthew Stafford (back) under center. While Jones' ceiling is certainly lower sans Stafford, he should remain a viable fantasy option against the Cowboys in Week 11 regardless of whether the Detroit Lions' starting quarterback makes his return.

    Lions' Marvin Jones: Missing starting QB in Week 10

    Marvin Jones will be catching passes from backup quarterback Jeff Driskel in Sunday's Week 10 game against the Bears with Matthew Stafford (back) inactive for the contest.Jones' fantasy outlook, along with that of the rest of his skill-position teammates, naturally takes a sizable hit with Stafford out of action. Driskel does have starting experience, having logged nine games under center with the Bengals last season during which he generated a 6:2 TD:INT and threw for 1,003 yards overall. However, a last-minute spot start against the Bears at Soldier Field figures to be a difficult assignment, even with Chicago's defense not quite as consistent as in seasons past thus far in 2019.

    Lions' Marvin Jones: Finds end zone in loss to Raiders

    Marvin Jones caught eight of 10 targets for 126 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 31-24 loss to the Raiders.Jones led the team in targets while averaging a healthy 15.8 yards per catch. He broke off a season-long 47-yard gain to help him get there and added a two-yard touchdown reception to give him six scores through eight games in 2019. Jones is on pace for one of the best statistical seasons of his career and will look to keep it up next Sunday against the Bears.

    Lions' Marvin Jones: Held in check vs. Giants

    Marvin Jones caught four of six targets for 22 yards during Sunday's 31-26 win over the Giants.Jones finished third on the team in targets and receptions, but his long gain went for just six yards in an underwhelming effort. This dud performance was especially notable considering Jones recorded four touchdown catches a week ago, giving him two games with fewer than 25 receiving yards in his last three. The mercurial wideout will look to bounce back in next week's favorable away matchup with the Raiders.
