2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
Filling the shoes of a perennial fantasy stud will certainly be a tall order for Marvin Jones, the Lions newest addition at wideout. Jones had a nice season last year for Cincinnati as he returned from a foot injury that cost him the entire 2014 season. As the third and sometimes fourth option in the passing game last year for the Bengals, Jones racked up a solid 65-816-4 line. Nothing about his final stats or weekly numbers pop off the page, but he finished as a WR3/4. More importantly, he scored 10 touchdowns in the season prior to his foot injury, and his size and frame should give him a prominent role, especially in the red zone. Listen, no one is replacing Megatron’s annual 1300 yards and 12-plus touchdowns, but the opportunities will be there for Jones to set career highs in yards and catches. My biggest concern with his statistical output is the fact he failed to have big games, even when facing single coverage due to the presence of A.J. Green and Tyler Eifert. Other than a 12-target game at Buffalo in Week 6, Jones either never seemed to be a big part of the game plan, or simply couldn’t get open enough. Golden Tate is going to lead this team in catches, but Jones has a chance to make an impact for your fantasy team, although I’d be hard pressed to have him as anything more than a mid-level WR3.

Lions HC Caldwell talks up WR T.J. Jones
Third-year receiver getting pre-camp hype

Detroit Lions
“TJ really has got to take another step forward,” head coach Jim Caldwell said. “He’s a guy that does a lot of things well. “He can return for you. He’s got return ability. But then also, he’s got a little scat back ability. He can catch screens for you. He can take off and go when he gets a seam. We really expect him to come forward and be a little bit more of a prominent threat.” (DetroitLions.com)

FFToday's Take: T.J. Jones is currently sitting fourth on the wide receiver depth chart behind Golden Tate, Marvin Jones and Jeremy Kerley. Even with the Lions needing to replace production from Calvin Johnson, Jones in all likelihood would need an injury to a receiver higher on the depth chart in order to become fantasy relevant. He's a late-round dart throw / free agent type in redraft leagues.
