Draft note
by John Paulsen
Jones is currently the 37th receiver off the board despite the fact that he was the No. 16 receiver through Week 14 of last season, prior to his injury. Yes, that included his four-touchdown eruption against the Vikings in Week 7, but I actually like to have players capable of scoring four touchdowns in a game on my fantasy team. Even if that game is removed, Jones was still playing at a low-end WR2/high-end WR3 pace. Why is he being drafted as a WR4 when nothing much has changed in Detroit?

DET WR Marvin Jones - 2020 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Prior to Matthew Stafford getting hurt last season, Marvin Jones was the No. 15 WR in PPR scoring. In ’19 he was the No. 27 WR before getting injured himself (ankle) and missing the final three games. Overall, in his 13 games last year he finished with 62 receptions for 779 yards and nine touchdowns. The number of grabs and scores were the second-most he’s posted during his seven-year career. When both Stafford and Jones were healthy in ’17, he finished as the No. 11 PPR WR.

Fantasy Downside
What a rollercoaster season it was for Jones in ’19. He failed to reach 50 yards in seven of 13 contests and scored six of his nine TDs in just two games, with four of those coming in one outing. Jones will again lineup opposite of Kenny Golladay, who is the team’s clear No. 1 wideout and T.J. Hockenson should receive plenty of looks in his second season too. Staying healthy has been an issue as Jones has missed 10 games the past two seasons.

Bottom Line
At 30 years of age, Jones could be nearing the downhill part of his career, especially for a WR who’s missed action due to injury. While Kenny Golladay is the Lions’ top WR, Jones still sees plenty of looks from Stafford, finishing with just three fewer receptions than Golladay in ’19. Detroit signed former Packer Geronimo Allison, who could push Jones for playing time, but expect another solid season from the veteran. He’s a good WR3 option for your fantasy team.
