2015 Week 11 vs ARI (9 / 4 / 60 / 0 rec)
Marvin Jones did not have the impact a lot of people expected out of him with Patrick Peterson on A.J. Green and Tyrann Mathieu covering Mohamed Sanu in the slot. He did not secure his first catch until the third quarter and dropped a key pass near the end zone that could have gone for a score. He finished the game with 60 yards on 9 targets. Of his four catches his biggest play of the game came on 3rd-and-26 in the fourth quarter where he caught a 22-yard pass to help keep the drive alive after the Bengals converted a first down on the next play.
2015 Week 10 vs HOU (9 / 4 / 44 / 0 rec, 1 / -8 / 0 rush)
Marvin Jones led the Bengals in targets in Week 10 with nine in Week 10 against the Houston Texans. He reeled in four balls for 44 yards but didn't make any big plays as Dalton was having trouble throwing the deep ball accurately all night. Jones was the target on his only interception deep down the middle but many of his targets were uncatchable balls. Jones did draw a 29-yard penalty in the first quarter but struggled to get much more going in this game.
2015 Week 9 vs CLE (6 / 5 / 78 / 0 rec)
Marvin Jones, A.J. Green, and Tyler Eifert all had six targets in this game but it was Jones who led the Bengals in receiving yards in Week 9. He finished the game with five receptions for 78 yards and his big play of the night came off of a short pass in the middle where Jones was able to gain some yards after the catch and a 29-yard gain. A.J. Green caught most of the downfield coverage and Jones was able to do most of his damage in the second half. He had a 25-yard catch in the fourth quarter where he fell down but got back up for a nice gain. On a night where Cincinnati didn't throw much, it was nice to see Jones with significant involvement in the offense.
2015 Week 8 vs PIT (5 / 2 / 12 / 0 rec, 1 / 2 / 0 rush)
Marvin Jones was targeted 5 times against the Steelers and finished the day with just two catches for 12 yards. Dalton threw a pass over his head in the first half where a Pittsburgh safety finished a hard hit that nearly bent him in half coming across the middle.
2015 Week 6 vs BUF (12 / 9 / 95 / 1 rec)
Marvin Jones led the Cincinnati Bengals in targets in Week 6 as he reeled in nine receptions for 95 yards and a touchdown against the Bills. A.J. Green was very well covered most of this game which lead to a great opportunity for Jones in this game and he didn't disappoint. He had a massive 42-yard reception deep down the middle of the field before scoring a 10-yard touchdown a few plays later in the third quarter. On his touchdown he made a great second effort play to use his arm to contort his body to avoid being down before he broke the plane. Jones was clearly Dalton's number one option in this game and the two helped give the Bengals another nice win on the road.
2015 Week 5 vs SEA (8 / 5 / 61 / 0 rec)
Of Marvin Jones 61 total yards, 44 of them came on the opening drive on a deep pass from quarterback Andy Dalton in Week 5. He collected five catches on eight targets but remained an inconsistent fantasy option with a large amount of mouths to feed in this offense.
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.
