WR Marvin Jones is returning to the Detroit Lions

You love to see a player announce his own move in free agency. Veteran WR Marvin Jones Jr headed back to the Lions, where he played from 2016-20. It's reported as a one-year deal with a $3 million base value with incentives that can push it to $5 million.

Fantasy Impact: 

After playing in the slot heavily for three seasons towards the end of his Lions run and the first year of Jacksonville, Marvin Jones returned to more of an out-wide role in 2022. As an initial observation, he will probably continue that role, as Amon-Ra St. Brown has been stellar, and spent 60% of his time in the slot last season. This would likely make Jones a candidate to rotate with Josh Reynolds in three-wide sets.

Detroit can still take someone in the NFL Draft, which further dampers Jones' fantasy outlook, but the signing makes the passing attack better in general.
