  • Posted: 11/26/2018 12:16pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (knee) is being placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Nov. 26.

    Huddle Up: It's a big blow for a Lions offense that has struggled. Kenny Golladay will continue to serve as Detroit's No. 1 wide receiver, but Bruce Ellington is a solid addition off waivers if he's still available. Furthermore, Theo Riddick's usage in the passing game will remain steady.

  • Posted: 11/22/2018 5:17am ET

    Updating previous reports, Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (knee) could return for Week 13 against the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: The Lions will have to be on point offensively in that game, and Jones could be a high-end WR3.

  • Posted: 11/21/2018 11:30am ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (knee) didn't practice Wednesday, Nov. 21, and he has been ruled out for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Jones' absence opens up looks for Bruce Ellington, who had a 6-52-0 line on nine targets last week. He's questionable, too, with a back ailment. If he's fit to go, he's a sneaky flex play.

  • Posted: 11/20/2018 3:26pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (knee) was not able to practice Tuesday, Nov. 20.

    Huddle Up: It would be a surprise at this point if Jones were able to take the field on Thanksgiving Day. If he is indeed out then Kenny Golladay would hold his low-end WR1 to high-end WR2 status with Bruce Ellington garnering flex appeal.

  • Posted: 11/19/2018 3:18pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (knee) was held out of practice Monday, Nov. 19.

    Huddle Up: It would be a surprise to see Jones play since he's seeking a second opinion on his injured knee and the Lions play Thursday morning. Assuming that is the case, Kenny Golladay will once again see a large portion of targets and can be started as a low-end WR1 to high-end WR2. Furthermore, Bruce Ellington would gain flex appeal in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 11/16/2018 12:44pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 16, and has been ruled out for Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Kenny Golladay, T.J. Jones and Theo Riddick should all receive more targets with Jones out of the lineup. Golladay can be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues, while Riddick can be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues. Jones can be a flex option in some deeper leagues but is not a must-start option.

  • Posted: 11/16/2018 11:47am ET

    Updating previous reports, Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (knee) is in the process of seeking a second opinion on his right knee injury after being unable to practice all week. Jones was originally considered day-to-day with a bone bruise following his Week 10 injury against the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Jones is extremely unlikely to play in Week 11 at this point, and owners need to be prepared for a multiple-week absence. If that ends up being the case, Kenny Golladay is poised for a huge target share and should be able to perform at a WR2 level. T.J. Jones and Bruce Ellington would be worth stashing on rosters in deeper leagues, although both possess minimal upside. Theo Riddick also stands to benefit as well and makes sense as a low-end flex.

  • Posted: 11/16/2018 9:47am ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (knee) missed a third straight practice Friday, Nov. 16, with a knee bone bruise.

    Huddle Up: MJJ looks like he could miss his first game since 2016, and with Golden Tate now gone, that would leave wideouts Kenny Golladay and T.J. Jones and RB Theo Riddick next in line for target upticks. Marvin Jones owners, though, will need to check his final status before kickoff Sunday.

  • Posted: 11/15/2018 9:51am ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (knee) missed a second straight day of practice Thursday, Nov. 15, with a knee injury.

    Huddle Up: Still no good news on the Jones front as he remains a spectator. See if Friday's important practice brings any better tidings, and if not, start getting a WR Plan B in place.

  • Posted: 11/14/2018 2:05pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 14.

    Huddle Up: Check back Friday when the official injury designations are revealed. Jones has some upside this week as a WR4 or flex fantasy option against the league's 22nd-ranked passing defense of the Carolina Panthers.

  • Posted: 11/12/2018 11:12am ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (knee) is considered day-to-day after suffering a bone bruise on his knee, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Jones will obviously be in a race to be ready to play against the Carolina Panthers in Week 11. Kenny Golladay will likely see heavy volume if Jones is forced to miss any time and would be worthy of low-end WR2 consideration in such a scenario.

  • Posted: 11/11/2018 10:24pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (knee) exited the game late in the third quarter in Week 10 against the Chicago Bears and did not return due to an apparent right knee injury.

    Huddle Up: Expect an update on Monday. The fact he did not return to the game is a bit concerning, although the Lions were down 24 points when the injury happened. If Jones is sidelined for any length of time, Kenny Golladay would almost certainly become a target hog and T.J. Jones could dabble with fantasy relevancy.

  • Posted: 11/11/2018 2:44pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones posted three grabs for 55 yards on seven targets in the Week 10 game against the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Jones has registered 16 grabs for 238 yards and two scores over the past three games. He has emerged as a solid WR3 or flex play in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 11 against the Carolina Panthers.

  • Posted: 11/4/2018 1:19pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones racked up six catches for 66 yards on eight targets in the Week 9 loss against the Minnesota Vikings.

    Huddle Up: Jones was the best of the lot for the Lions in a day where the offense was held down by a good defense. Things might not get much better on the road in Week 10 against the Chicago Bears. Treat Jones are a low-end WR4 or flex option in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 10/28/2018 5:54pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones racked up seven receptions for a game-high 117 yards and two touchdowns on 10 targets in the Week 8 game against the Seattle Seahawks.

    Huddle Up: It was his first multi-score game since Nov. 23, 2017 against the Minnesota Vikings, and his most yardage in a single game since he dropped 128 yards on the Pittsburgh Steelers back on Oct. 29, 2017. He remains more of a WR4 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 9 against the Minnesota Vikings.

  • Posted: 10/21/2018 11:14pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones caught three passes (on four targets) for 29 yards during the team's win over the Miami Dolphins in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: After averaging a little more than 58 receiving yards per game over the first month, Jones has just 37 yards combined over the last two games. While Kenny Golladay may be part of the issue, the true culprit is the development of Kerryon Johnson, who has given Detroit its first real running threat since *checks notes* Barry Sanders (sorry James Stewart)! It's hard to envision the Lions returning to a pass-heavy approach on a regular basis, which means Jones' downturn could be a new norm. Hold him for now, but if Jones doesn't start seeing more work soon it could be time to drop him.

  • Posted: 10/7/2018 7:20pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones caught one of his four targets for an eight-yard touchdown in a 31 to 23 win over the Green Bay Packers in Week 5.

    Huddle Up: It was the first time this season that Jones has failed to top 50 yards, but it does appear that Kenny Golladay could be becoming the No. 2 option for Matthew Stafford.

  • Posted: 10/7/2018 8:53am ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (ankle) is officially active for the Week 5 game.

    Huddle Up: Jones has been a solid fantasy option over the first four weeks of the season and should see a good amount of targets this week. He can be considered a No. 3 receiver in most leagues.

  • Posted: 10/6/2018 8:59pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (ankle) is expected to play against the Green Bay Packers in Week 5, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Golden Tate has been the go-to guy in the passing attack, but Jones has topped 50 yards in all four games while adding a couple of scores. He can be a WR3 in Week 5.

  • Posted: 9/30/2018 2:52pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones caught three passes for 56 yards against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Jones has been pretty consistent with his numbers over the first four weeks of the season and will continue to be a top-three receiver for he Lions. He can be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in most leagues next week against the Green Bay Packers.

  • Posted: 9/23/2018 5:54am ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (ankle) is expected to play in Week 3's game against the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: Jones was a late addition to the injury report after putting in a limited practice session Friday, Sept. 21. He should be viewed as nothing more than a flex option in most fantasy formats due to the presence of WRs Golden Tate and Kenny Golladay, who are both likely to receive more targets than Jones.

  • Posted: 9/10/2018 9:21pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones hauled in four receptions for 54 yards on eight targets in the Week 1 game against the New York Jets on Monday, Sept. 10.

    Huddle Up: Jones was third on the team in targets behind Golden Tate (15) and Kenny Golladay (12), and that's probably the pecking order you can expect for most of the season. Treat Jones as a low-end WR4 or WR5 in most fantasy leagues going forward. The Lions meet the 49ers on the road in Week 2.

  • Posted: 7/28/2018 10:05am ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (knee) left practice early Saturday, July 28, after suffering an apparent knee injury but said his knee was fine after practice.

    Huddle Up: Jones could sit out a few practices but probably will be fine moving forward. He has been very successful since joining the Lions and will continue to see a solid amount of targets. He can be considered a No. 2 fantasy receiver in most leagues.

  • Posted: 5/6/2018 7:13pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones said he has been adding muscle this offseason to make himself harder to tackle and increase his yards after catch.

    Huddle Up: Jones emerged as one of the best downfield threats in the NFL last year, finishing with more than 1,000 yards and nine scores. He's already a WR2 heading into 2018, and becoming more of a threat after the catch would only boost his stock.

  • Posted: 2/4/2018 11:10am ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones said he believes the Lions have the chance to be the top offense in the NFL next season with QB Matthew Stafford and all of the main receivers under contract.

    Huddle Up: Jones was one of two Lions receivers that posted at least 1,000 yards this season and also led the team with nine touchdown receptions. He should be considered a No. 2 receiver in most leagues next season, while Stafford and Golden Tate should also be starting fantasy options.

  • Posted: 1/5/2018 7:29pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones had a league-high 16 receptions on passes thrown 20 or more yards down the field this year and ranked third in yards and touchdowns, and he credited his success on deep throws to his offseason work with retired WR Randy Moss. 'I'm probably just going to replicate what I did this offseason,' Jones said. 'I worked with Randy more toward the summer, so I'm going to do that.'

    Huddle Up: Jones finished ninth in the NFL with a career-high 1,101 yards and ranked fourth with nine touchdowns. He'll enter 2018 as a WR2 candidate.

  • Posted: 12/24/2017 4:29pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones finished with three receptions and 50 yards on five targets in Week 16 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: Jones has managed three or more receptions in each of his past six games, and 10 of the past 11 outings. He remains a decent WR3 or flex option in PPR leagues, while serving as a WR4 in most standard formats heading into Week 17.

  • Posted: 12/16/2017 6:40pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones caught three passes on five targets for a team-high 85 yards in a 20-10 win over the Chicago Bears Saturday, Dec. 16.

    Huddle Up: Jones has now topped 80 yards in four of his last five games and seven of his last nine, and he has averaged more than 20 yards per reception in six games in that span. Jones is a dependable WR3 with WR2 upside.
