Summary

Jones had his 2018 season cut short by a Week 9 knee injury that would land him on injured reserve. Durability has been an issue for Jones. He has averaged less than 12 games played per season in his seven-year career and has also played through other injuries which limited his effectiveness. When Jones has been on the field at to full health, he has been a difference maker. In 2017, Jones led the NFL with 18.0 yards per reception and set a career-high with 1,101 receiving yards. Even before the injury last season, Jones was having a bit of a down year. He was on pace for 62 catches and 903 receiving yards. The slight dip in production compared to 2017 was partially due to the emergence of Kenny Golladay, who has a similar skillset to Jones. Entering 2019, Jones may take second fiddle to Golladay in the Lions offense. Even so, his ability to make big plays down the field and nose for the end zone give him weekly fantasy upside. (May 3)

Lions | Marvin Jones misses workouts (Fri Jun 21, 06:07 PM) - Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (knee) did not participate in any of the offseason workouts or minicamp practices because he is still recovering from a knee injury.

Our View: This isn't very encouraging after Jones was expected to be ready for the offseason program, according to a March report from Birkett, but he still expects a strong season from Jones, although he also said the team could move on from him the way they did from Golden Tate last year if they are struggling before the trade deadline.
