Jaguars are giving former Lions' WR Marvin Jones a two-year, $14.5 million deal, including $9.2 million fully guaranteed, per source.
I figured Jones would sign with a contender, not with a team in rebuilding mode, but money talks, and the Jaguars have a lot to spend. Even at 31, Jones is a solid weapon for (likely) future No. 1 overall pick Trevor Lawrence. He posted 76-978-9 last season, and benefited from the extended absence of Kenny Golladay. In Jacksonville, he'll join a receiving corps that already features D.J. Chark and Laviska Shenault. The Jaguars also added Phillip Dorsett yesterday. Fantasy-wise Jones will be in the WR4/WR5 mix as a low-volume threat in the Jacksonville passing game.
DET WR Marvin Jones - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. Minnesota Vikings
With three Detroit QBs playing last week versus Tampa, Marvin Jones turned in a disappointing stat line, recording only three grabs for 19 yards. It’s possible Matthew Stafford returns for the finale, which would give the veteran WR a boost. Jones finished with 43 yards and a score in the previous matchup against Minnesota this season.
