2017 Outlook

When looking up the season stats for Marvin Jones in FFToday's stats section I admittedly did a double take. My first thought was, "who the heck hit copy and paste for the 2015 and 2016 totals?" Take a look for yourself! Jones' 2015 line 65-816-4 on 103 targets. The 2016 line, 55-930-4 on, you guessed it, 103 targets. On the surface, the 2016 season totals don't seem terrible for a guy being forced into the WR1 role for the first time in his career, and on a brand new team. But when you dig into the numbers, and notice that Jones had nearly 44% of his season total in yardage over the first three games, you'll know why many fantasy owners were downright depressed by the end of the season. After a dominating 6-205-2 line against the Packers in Week 3, Jones failed to surpass 5 receptions or 94 yards for the remainder of the year, during which he battled lower leg injuries. To say that the star faded quickly on Jones' season is an understatement, as his role as a deep threat took a nose dive when Detroit showed an inability to protect Stafford. Unable to get the time to go deep, the Lions mothballed the offense, and became a team that threw a majority of its passes within 10 yards of the line of scrimmage. This dinking and dunking offense plays counter to Marvin's strengths, and unfortunately I don't see a drastic change coming. By the time the 2016 season ended, Jones was an inconsistent WR3 and that's where he sits in my eyes for 2017.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury OBJ active, Janoris Jenkins not in Week 2
Beckham set to make season debut
By: Doug Orth | Mon Sep 18, 7:15 pm

New York Giants
Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle) officially ACTIVE for Giants. CB Janoris Jenkins (ankle, hand) is OUT. (ESPN - Dan Graziano)

FFToday's Take: OBJ appears near 100 percent in warmups, so start him if you got him, even though he has a difficult matchup with Darius Slay likely chasing him around. As for Jenkins, he will be missed, so owners can upgrade Marvin Jones and Kenny Golladay a bit. Before owners go to crazy on loading up on either Lion, however, the Giants still have 2016 first-round Eli Apple and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. If anything, Golden Tate might see the biggest bump for fantasy purposes.


Lions direct two-TE sets, could benefit Eric Ebron
Daniel Fells handling blocking duties in scheme
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Aug 1, 8:50 am

Detroit Lions
Even with Eric Ebron out with a hamstring injury, the Lions have spent significant time with two tight ends on the field thus far in training camp. Darren Fells and Cole Wick joined Golden Tate and Marvin Jones in the first play of full-team drills each of the last two days, and Fells had a standout practice today, making several tough catches in traffic. (Detroit Free Press)

FFToday's Take: Fells was signed as a free agent in the spring largely for his blocking ability to beef up the run game, and Anquan Boldin was let go. A shift to two-tight end personnel could free up more opportunities for Ebron, who remains a back-end TE1 with upside.
