2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
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 Golden Tate uncertain for Week 8
Will likely be a gametime decision
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Oct 26, 12:17 pm

Detroit Lions
Golden Tate said he’s working hard to rehab his shoulder, but doesn’t know if he’ll be ready Sunday. Said trainers & coaches will make call (Tim Twentyyman on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Tate was reportedly set to miss "a few weeks" when he originally injured his shoulder in Week 6. More thank likely he will be inactive leaving the receiving work to be handled by Marvin Jones, Kenny Golladay, T.J. Jones and running back Theo Riddick. The Steelers have given up the fewest fantasy points to wide receivers.


Golden Tate expected to miss multiple weeks
AC joint sprain

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate is dealing with an AC joint sprain in his shoulder and will miss "a few weeks," NFL Network reported Monday. (MLive.com - Nate Atkins)

FFToday's Take: Shoulder injuries ruled the day in Week 6, although the Lions got a bit lucky in the sense they are heading into their bye week. Although rate of recovery can differ from person and person and depends on the severity, AC joint sprains often come with a 2-4 week timetable. In the interim, Eric Ebron could see an uptick in usage out of the slot. Marvin Jones will be asked to assume the lead receiver role, while Kenny Golladay and T.J. Jones will also factor in.


Injury Kenny Golladay misses practice Friday
Hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 29, 12:10 pm

Detroit Lions
Two missed practice days in a row doesn't bode well for Kenny Golladay's availability Sunday against the Vikings. If he can't go, TJ Jones could get a lot more reps and is an intriguing fantasy flier. Also could lead to more two TE sets against Minnesota. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Golladay missed practice on Thursday as well, suggesting he'll like be inactive on Sunday. With Xavier Rhodes expected to cover Marvin Jones, Golden Tate should be heavily targeted by Matthew Stafford in Week 4. T.J. Jones should also see increased snaps if Golladay sits.


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.
