    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.

  • Posted: 12/10/2017 7:11pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones hauled in three receptions for 64 yards on four targets in Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: Jones had the one off week back in Week 10 against the Browns of all teams, but he has been a consistent WR3 or flex option in fantasy leagues for most of the season.

  • Posted: 12/3/2017 7:34pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones caught four passes on eight targets for 90 yards in a 44-20 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 13.

    Huddle Up: After a mediocre start to the year, Jones has delivered at least 85 receiving yards in six of his last seven games, scoring six times in that stretch. He has WR2 potential against a struggling Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense in Week 14.

  • Posted: 11/23/2017 1:40pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones caught six passes for 109 yards and two touchdowns in a Week 12 loss to the Minnesota Vikings Thursday, Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: Jones was really the lone bright spot for the Lions on offense. He scored their only two touchdowns, including a masterful catch on a deep ball in double-coverage. With five touchdowns in his last four games, Jones is a mainstay in WR2 territory.

  • Posted: 11/19/2017 2:35pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones posted four receptions for 85 yards and a touchdown in Week 11 against the Chicago Bears on seven targets.

    Huddle Up: Jones rebounded from last week's effort when he had just one catch for 22 yards on two targets, both season lows. He remains a solid WR3 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 12 against the Vikings on Thanksgiving. He had 42 yards on two grabs in Week 4 in the first meeting against Minnesota.

  • Posted: 11/6/2017 8:38pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones registered seven receptions on 11 targets for 107 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the team's Week 9 victory Monday, Nov. 6, against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Jones is really hitting his stride right now, as he's topped 95 receiving yards in each of the last three contests, while garnering three touchdowns over that span as well. Previously, his season high was 54 yards through the first five games, and had just two touchdowns during that stretch. With the way he's going entering Week 10, Jones should be active in all lineups.

  • Posted: 10/29/2017 8:52pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones posted six grabs for 128 yards on 11 targets in the Week 8 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: Jones has back-to-back impressive games, totaling 12 receptions for 224 yards and a score. He also has six catches in each of his past three outings. He is worth using as a low-end WR2 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 9 at Green Bay.

  • Posted: 10/15/2017 4:53pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones racked up six receptions for 96 yards and a touchdown on 14 targets in Week 6 against the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: Jones was the only player in the game with double-digit targets, and he had five more than teammate T.J. Jones. The yardage total was easily his best of the season, besting the 54 yards he posted last week. That's 12 catches over the past two weekends, so perhaps he can be trusted again as a WR4 in most fantasy leagues. Of course, just as he was building momentum the team has a bye in Week 7.

  • Posted: 10/8/2017 3:24pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones hauled in six receptions for 54 yards on eight targets in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: The six receptions and 54 yards were each season bests, as he entered the game with just eight grabs for 130 yards through his first four outings. He is still nothing more than a WR4 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 6 despite the favorable matchup in New Orleans.

  • Posted: 10/1/2017 3:01pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones posted two grabs for a team-high 42 yards on five targets in Week 4 against the Minnesota Vikings.

    Huddle Up: Jones failed to score a touchdown for the second consecutive game, but this was actually his yardage high for the season. As such, he remains nothing more than a low-end WR4 or flex play heading into Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers.
