After the retirement of Calvin Johnson, the Lions made receiver Marvin Jones a priority in free agency because they believed Jones brought a lot to the table.

“I thought Marvin was a very good route runner,” Lions general manager Bob Quinn said shortly after signing Jones. “He’s not just a one-dimensional receiver. He can run vertical routes, he can run short routes, he can run intermediate routes. He’s got very good hands, so I think he’s a guy that can get open and catch the football.”

Getting open and catching the football is something we’ve seen a lot from Jones early and often so far in training camp. That’s especially been the case down the field both in one-on-one drills and in team portions of practice.

Fantasy Impact:

It’s still early in training camp, but Jones has already shown to have a nice repertoire of short, intermediate and deep playmaking ability the story said. Also important, he and Stafford seem to already be building a nice rapport.
