Jones caught all three of his targets, putting up 40 receiving yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 31-0 win against the Packers.
Jones saw an uptick in his involvement within the Lions passing attack towards the end of the season, collecting 10 receptions (on 12 targets) for 87 yards over the past three weeks, compared to nine receptions for 103 yards between Weeks 1 and 14. He went crazy in Week 17 specifically, picking up two receiving touchdowns against the Packers after accounting for two touchdowns through his first 41 NFL appearances. With Golden Tate already having been traded earlier this season, Jones has a chance to re-sign with Detroit and enter 2019 as the Lions No. 3 receiving option behind Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones (knee), depending on whether the team elects to acquire another target in free agency or the 2019 Draft.
Jones corralled all six of his targets for 42 yards in Sunday's 27-9 loss to the Vikings.
Jones stepped up for the injury-riddled Lions, finishing 16 yards shy of Kenny Golladay's team-leading receiving total on nine fewer targets. The 2014 sixth-rounder came into this contest with just 10 catches all season, so he's likely to fall back into obscurity against the Packers in Week 16.
Jones secured one of three targets for five yards during Sunday's 14-13 loss to Buffalo.
Bruce Ellington (hamstring) didn't play in this one, and the Lions chose to roll with Andy Jones over TJ Jones as the No. 2 wideout behind Kenny Golladay. Given how much TJ Jones has struggled to produce over the past few weeks despite Detroit's desperate need for someone to step up at receiver, there isn't much hope he'll be a worthwhile fantasy option over the final two weeks of the season -- despite how much opportunity is available to him.
Jones was targeted once but did not record a reception during Sunday's 17-3 victory over the Cardinals.
Detroit has a dire need for playmakers to step up on offense, and yet Jones remains an afterthought in the game plan. He isn't worth a bench spot in the vast majority of fantasy leagues, let alone starting rosters.
Jones caught one pass for 25 yards during Sunday's 30-16 loss to the Rams.
Jones had a touchdown called back by an offensive pass interference penalty, but he otherwise didn't see a single target until there was a minute left in garbage time. Even with Marvin Jones (knee) on injured reserve, TJ Jones clearly isn't a viable fantasy option in any format.
