    Lions' Andy Jones: Peppered with targets

    Andy Jones snagged six of 12 targets for 50 yards during Sunday's victory over Green Bay.Jones and Brandon Powell were the apples of quarterback Matthew Stafford's eye on a day without top target Kenny Golladay (chest), as the two combined for 21 of Stafford's 32 pass attempts. While Jones was much less effective with his touches, he could have had a much bigger day had he been able to get in better position either of the two times he was targeted in the end zone. The inexperienced receiver also dropped a pair of seemingly catchable balls. Under contract with Detroit through the end of the 2019 season, Jones will now enter the offseason with aims of securing the No. 3 receiver role behind Golladay and Marvin Jones (knee) ahead of the new campaign.

    Lions' Andy Jones: Does little with boosted workload

    Andy Jones caught one of five targets for 12 yards during Sunday's 27-9 loss to Minnesota.Jones produced little despite earning a career high in targets, though he did draw a flag on third down to help the Detroit Lions move the sticks at one point. With Bruce Ellington (hamstring) on injured reserve and Jones now a secondary target behind Kenny Golladay, the third-year wideout should again see a handful of targets when Detroit takes on Green Bay in next Sunday's season finale.

    Lions' Andy Jones: Records first career touchdown

    Andy Jones recorded two receptions for nine yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 14-13 loss to the Bills.With Bruce Ellington (hamstring) inactive, Jones served as the Detroit Lions' No. 2 receiver behind Kenny Golladay, easily out-snapping fellow depth receiver TJ Jones, 45 to 36. Along the way, the third-year wideout collected his first career touchdown while setting new career highs in receptions and yardage (however uninspiring those totals may be). If Ellington remains sidelined Week 16, Andy Jones could again see a heightened offensive role this Sunday against the Vikings.

    Lions' Andy Jones: Draws two targets

    Andy Jones caught one of two targets for five yards during Sunday's 17-3 victory over the Cardinals.Jones logged a career high in playing time with 37 offensive snaps thanks in large part to the hamstring injury that forced Bruce Ellington from the game. While Jones wasn't able to much with his increased role, no Detroit Lions receiver was particularly productive on a day quarterback Matthew Stafford threw for a career-low 101 passing yards. Depending on the severity of Ellington's situation, Jones could again be in store for heightened playing time in Week 15 against the Bills.

    Lions' Andy Jones: No opportunities against Rams

    Andy Jones wasn't targeted during Sunday's 30-16 loss to the Rams.Jones is running as the Detroit Lions' clear No. 4 wideout after Kenny Golladay, Bruce Ellington and TJ Jones. Unless his role unexpectedly grows in the near future, he'll remain far off the fantasy radar.

    Lions' Andy Jones: Records first career reception

    Andy Jones caught one pass for four yards during Thursday's loss to the Bears.Jones caught the first pass of his professional career while helping fill in for the injured Marvin Jones (knee). However, Marvin Jones could return as soon as next week against the Rams, which would significantly reduce Andy Jones' role in the offense.

    Lions' Andy Jones: Rejoins Lions

    Andy Jones signed a contract with the Detroit Lions on Saturday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.Jones was waived by the Lions in early November after coming off the Physcially Unable to Perform list, and now rejoins the team with Marvin Jones (knee) ruled out for Sunday's game against the Panthers. The 28-year-old is likely to remain in a depth role at wide receiver, but should see some snaps on special teams.

    Andy Jones: Let go by Detroit

    Andy Jones was waived by the Lions on Monday.Jones was activated off the Physically Unable to Perform list prior to Sunday's game against the Vikings. The 24-year-old wideout saw action as the team's No. 4 receiver, though that action was limited to just two snaps. It's unclear if the Lions are interested in signing Jones to their practice squad if he clears waivers, though it would seem likely due to the fact they're in need of receiver depth since trading Golden Tate.

    Lions' Andy Jones: Sees playing time on offense

    Andy Jones logged two offensive snaps during Sunday's 24-9 loss to Minnesota.Even though Jones was blanked from the stat sheet, he significantly ran as Detroit's No. 4 receiver over Brandon Powell, who was thought to be in line for an expanded offensive role in the wake of Golden Tate being traded to Philadelphia. However, Jones still didn't see nearly enough playing time to warrant fantasy consideration, and it's unlikely that changes unless the injury bug bites any member of the Detroit Lions' top trio of receivers in Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones, and TJ Jones.

    Lions' Andy Jones: Returns from PUP list

    Andy Jones (undisclosed) was activated off the Physically Unable to Perform list Saturday, Tim Twentyman of the Detroit Lions' official site reports.Jones makes his return to the Lions after spending the first eight weeks of the season on the PUP list with the injury. Even with Golden Tate being traded to the Eagles this week, Jones is unlikely to play a significant role offensively with the rest of the wide receiver group healthy.
