Recent Player News

  • 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.

  • Posted: 9/18/2017 8:49pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones had just one catch in Week 2 against the New York Giants on Monday, Sept. 18, but it was good for a 27-yard touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Jones was tied for the team high with five targets, but he and Matthew Stafford were unable to connect. He'll look for more receptions in Week 3 against the visiting Falcons. He remains more of a WR4 or WR5 in most fantasy leagues at this point.

  • Posted: 9/10/2017 4:36pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones posted two grabs for 37 yards and a touchdown on two targets in Week 1 against the Cardinals.

    Huddle Up: Jones is behind Golden Tate on the depth chart, and he appeared to be behind rookie Kenny Golladay, too, especially late in the game. That's not good for the fantasy appeal of Jones going forward.

  • Posted: 8/25/2017 7:05pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones caught four passes for 62 yards and a touchdown against the New England Patriots in the preseason Friday, Aug. 25.

    Huddle Up: Jones ran hot and cold in his first season with Detroit but still topped 900 yards. His second year with Matthew Stafford could lead to steadier production, and Jones deserves to be in the WR3 conversation.

  • Posted: 6/24/2017 3:51pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones focused on strengthening his lower body to improve his explosiveness and also spent time working out with former NFL receiver Randy Moss. 'I think Marvin started out (last) season extremely well. He?s been doing even better this spring. He?s had one of those springs that you kind of look to. This guy is right there on the verge of maintaining that kind of explosive start that he had last year. He?s really, really had a real good spring,' head coach Jim Caldwell said.

    Huddle Up: Jones still has some breakout potential in him following the departure of Anquan Boldin, but Eric Ebron would seem to be the first in line to benefit since he runs more routes closer to the line of scrimmage. Rookie Kenny Golladay has also impressed so far. If Jones can improve in the short passing game - he focused on route-running with Moss - perhaps he can move into the WR3 discussion.

  • Posted: 6/19/2017 2:22pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones focused on strengthening his lower body to improve his explosiveness this offseason. He worked out with former NFL WR Randy Moss to help him in that endeavor and to improve his yards after the catch. Head coach Jim Caldwell praised Jones for the offseason he has put together so far. 'This guy is right there on the verge of maintaining that kind of explosive start that he had last year,' Caldwell said. 'He's really, really had a real good spring.'

    Huddle Up: Jones has been overlooked somewhat since that fast start last season. He remains the Lions' No. 2 wide receiver behind Golden Tate, but T.J. Jones and rookie Kenny Golladay are asking to take targets away. That being said, Jones is a solid low-end WR3 to high-end WR4 option after nearly gaining 1,000 yards and four scores in 2016.

  • Posted: 5/27/2017 6:51pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones said he is a lot more comfortable with offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter's system entering this season after struggling to master the offense last year.

    Huddle Up: Jones cooled off after a scorching start to last season, but he still flirted with 1,000 yards. He enters 2017 as Detroit No. 2 receiver, and Jones is worth drafting as a low-end WR3.
