Notes: Green has finished as the #4 WR in each of the last four seasons, but may have a tough time finishing that high if new OC Hue Jackson installs a run-heavy offense. The Bengals threw the ball 55.0% of the time last season (which was below the league average of 56.6%) under supposed 'pass-happy' Jay Gruden, so the Bengals were already a tad run-heavy on offense. We're expecting a bit more running, so Green deserves a slight downgrade. But Jackson still threw it in Oakland when Carson Palmer was QB. Green is still a very solid WR1.

Bengals WR Marvin Jones headed for 'massive spike in production'
July 17, 2014, 10:34am

Cincinnati Enquirer - [Full Article]

Bengals Marvin Jones may have been the most efficient receiver in football last year. Of the 22 receivers with at least six touchdowns, Jones (10 TDs) did it in the fewest snaps (555). In fact, only two others on the list accumulated less than 725 total snaps. A full year of Jones on the field most plays and a burgeoning relationship with Andy Dalton could mean a massive spike in production from his 51 receptions for 712 yards.


Fantasy Impact:
He finished as the #21 WR in 2013, racking up 51 catches for 712 yards and 10 touchdowns on just 80 targets. What gives Jones upside is the fact that he played just 48% of the snaps, sharing time with the far-less-effective Mohamed Sanu. In that limited playing time, he posted the #4 FP/snap (.25) of all wideouts who played at least 20% of their team’s snaps. All indications are that Jones is going to start opposite A.J. Green, and even though new OC Hue Jackson likes to run it more than Jay Gruden did, Jones’ new role should ensure that he has plenty of opportunity to make plays in his third year. He is shaping up to be a terrific value in the 9th-11th rounds.
