Summary

Despite being 28-years old and entering his 7th season, Marvin Jones may still be an ascending player. Aside from a 2014 season entirely wiped out by injury, he has improved his production every single season in the NFL. He had 816 receiving yards in 2015, 930 in 2016 and 1,101 in 2018. Jones' career-year in 2017 was especially impressive as he led the NFL with 18.0 yards per reception and averaged over 10 yards per target. Jones is an excellent deep threat due to his speed (4.46-forty yard dash at the NFL combine) and uncanny ability to adjust in the air and win on contested catches. Jones was a WR1 for fantasy purposes in 2017 (11th in PPR scoring and 5th in Standard) and should have a chance to build upon that success in 2018 as he continues to establish himself as the go-to playmaker for the Lions.

Lions | Marvin Jones lighting it up in camp (Fri Aug 10, 01:58 PM) - Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones has reportedly been Matthew Stafford's favorite target in camp, 'largely because he's been getting open so frequently,' according to Kyle Meinke of MLive.com.

Our View: Jones targets could be cut into by a healthy and developing Kenny Golladay, but he is still a big play threat every week. His ADP isn't quite where last year's production would dictate and reflecting the possible effect of Golladay, making Jones a solid pick with room for profit.
