From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 8): Jones caught a score to keep his Week 5 from being a total wash, but the game script denied him a chance at significant targets as the Lions jumped out to a big lead. He's just a boom/bust WR3/Flex going into the bye and we're waiting for the boom.

Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 5 vs GB (4 / 1 / 8 / 1 rec)

Marvin Jones had a quiet day outside of a red zone touchdown against Green Bay, but it could have been better. Jones was used frequently to try to exploit Green Bay's weaknesses on the deep perimeter, but it never truly came together. Jones had a long catch called back by a penalty and had a deep end zone target that went through his hands. Jones was also called for two offensive pass interferences penalties for push offs on comeback routes. While the numbers may seem low for the game, Jones has high leverage usage in the offense and remains an underrated weapon despite Kenny Golladay's emergence.

2018 Week 4 vs DAL (6 / 3 / 56 / 0 rec)

Marvin Jones had a highlight over the shoulder catch along the sideline and caught a deep crossing route in contested coverage. Jones was also targeted on a fade in the end zone that was well covered and fell incomplete. Despite Kenny Golladay's continued emergence in the offense, Jones has a secure role as a deep threat for Matthew Stafford and the two were able to connect after near misses earlier in the season.

2018 Week 3 vs NE (6 / 4 / 69 / 1 rec)

Marvin Jones connected on a deep ball for a touchdown after several near misses last week. Jones continues to work as the deep threat in the offense despite Kenny Golladay's expanded usage. Jones was used in high leverage situations including an incomplete fade where he was well covered by Stephon Gilmore.

2018 Week 2 vs SF (9 / 4 / 54 / 1 rec)

Marvin Jones had the opportunity for a huge day but was limited by inaccuracies from Matthew Stafford. Jones had three deep opportunities where he was overthrown by Stafford and a fourth end zone target that was overthrown. Jones was able to score a touchdown along the back of the end zone to manage a solid fantasy day, but his fantasy day could have led the league if Stafford was more accurate. Jones is playing well despite the continued emergence of Kenny Golladay.

2018 Week 1 vs NYJ (8 / 4 / 54 / 0 rec)

Marvin Jones was the third most targeted receiver against New York. Jones had a solid run after catch for 28 yards and was overthrown on a deep ball into the end zone. Jones continued to run as a first team receiver, despite being out targeted by Golladay (12 to 8) and should remain a focal point of the deep passing game
