News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 5): Hoping for some consistency from Jones in the box score might have been too much. The Bengals deep offense instead made big downfield connections to Mohamed Sanu and Brandon Tate. We've seen the boom in Jones' Boom/Bust weekly profile, now we've seen another instance of the bust.

2015 Week 4 vs KC (2 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec, 1 / 6 / 0 rush)
Wide Receiver Marvin Jones reeled in just one pass on six targets against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 4. He had just four yards on the night along with another six on his lone rush attempt. In a game where Cincinnati got up big, quarterback Andy Dalton had just 24 pass attempts where the majority of his targets went to A.J. Green, Mohamed Sanu, and Tyler Eifert. There was no need to take many deep shots down the field in this game but Jones did have a drop where he overran a ball thrown deep down the left side of the field. The chemistry just wasn't there this week as Marvin Jones is the clear third option behind A.J Green and Tyler Eifert in this offense.
2015 Week 3 vs BAL (8 / 5 / 94 / 1 rec)
Marvin Jones caught a touchdown pass for the 2nd straight week and posted a stat line of 5 catches for 94 yards and a touchdown in Week 3. On the first drive of the game Jones makes a great adjustment along the sideline to an underthrown ball for a great 32-yard catch in traffic. This was his longest reception of the game. Marvin Jones was targeted heavily by quarterback Andy Dalton on the 2nd drive of the game and capped the drive with a 16-yard touchdown. Jones beat press coverage off the line and then ran over the middle to catch a ball thrown into a tight area by Dalton. Jones had 8 targets in this game and set up the game winning A.J. Green touchdown with a miraculous one handed catch for 31 yards against cornerback Kyle Arrington.
2015 Week 2 vs SD (5 / 2 / 48 / 1 rec, 1 / 3 / 0 rush)
Marvin Jones has the speed that complements number one receiver A.J. Green very well in this offense. In the first quarter Dalton misses him while wide open high off of a play fake which would have given him an easy 15-yard gain. Later in the drive he takes the ball on a reverse play only to cut back to his original side and avoid a loss as things closed in. Marvin Jones found great separation from his cornerback on his 45-yard touchdown reception in the second quarter. He got open deep down the middle on a go-route and shows great explosive ability to get down field and make a big play.
2015 Week 1 vs OAK (3 / 2 / 19 / 0 rec)
Marvin Jones was not much of a factor in this game. His first target came in the first series of the game where he caught a quick pass to the outside after a fake hand off to Jeremy Hill. The pass was for an 18-yard gain. His second target came in the red zone where he nearly catches a poorly thrown ball that was both behind Jones and low. In the second half he caught a quick pass along the sideline for 1 yard.
