JAX WR Marvin Jones - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 vs. Buffalo Bills
Marvin Jones turned in a disappointing 5-35-0 line against a weak Seattle secondary, and in Week 9 the competition will stiffen significantly when the Jags take on Tre'davious White and the Bills defense. Jones continues to see a decent target (20%) and air yard (31%) share in the Jacksonville offense, but Trevor Lawrence's inconsistent play and the general ineptitude of the Jags' coaching staff mean the team will be in for some rough weeks regardless of individual performances. This week could easily fall into that category when the elite Buffalo defense comes to town. Consider Jones a flex option in a game the Jags should be forced to throw, but he's been a volatile producer of late and the risk of a slow game is high.

JAX WR Marvin Jones - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 8 at Seattle Seahawks
Marvin Jones stormed back on the scene in Week 6 following two slow performances with a 7-100-1 line against the Dolphins. Jones has been a volatile fantasy producer of late but has demonstrated the ability to turn in relevant performances in the right game script and matchup catching passes from Trevor Lawrence. He remains the clear top downfield target in Jacksonville with D.J. Chark done for the year and Laviska Shenault being used strictly underneath. Week 8 presents a great opportunity for Jones to turn in another solid performance against a Seattle secondary that is amongst the worst in the NFL. It's unfortunate Jones will not be able to benefit from the game script that Russell Wilson would bring if the Seahawks were healthy on offense, but he can be slotted into lineups as an upside WR3 given the plush matchup in Week 8.

JAX WR Marvin Jones - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 vs. Miami Dolphins

Marvin Jones' Week 5 was severely disappointing as he finished with only one catch for 25 yards on five targets despite D.J. Chark going on IR. Jones's Week 5 dud is a reminder that the Jacksonville offense is generally a mess and any player involved will be inconsistent for fantasy purposes outside of James Robinson. A Week 6 matchup with the Dolphins means potential shadow coverage on Jones from Xavien Howard. Despite a prominent role in the Jags passing game, Jones is a risky play and should probably be left on the bench in most leagues.

JAX WR Marvin Jones - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 vs. Tennessee Titans
Marvin Jones had easily his worst performance of the season in Week 4, catching only three passes for 24 scoreless yards. It was Jones's first game with fewer than five receptions and less than 50 receiving yards on the year. He will carry immediate bounce-back potential in light of the season-ending injury D.J. Chark suffered, which should boost Jones's target share even if it has a detrimental impact on the offense as a whole. Jones should maintain his current role and could add some more deep routes that Chark would normally run to his snap share as Laviska Shenault continues to operate closer to the line of scrimmage. A Week 5 matchup with the thoroughly mediocre Titans defense is nothing to be afraid of, making Jones an interesting flex option this week given that the Jags live in negative game script.

JAX WR Marvin Jones - Week 4 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 4 at Cincinnati Bengals
Early returns for Marvin Jones with Trevor Lawrence are very promising for the veteran wideout. Jones leads the Jags in targets, catches, and receiving yards through three weeks, and has tacked on two touchdowns during that span. Jones looks poised to be a solid fantasy asset based on his high-volume role in an offense that will be throwing a ton out of necessity. In Week 4, Jones will take on a Bengals secondary that slots in around the league average in terms of fantasy points allowed to WRs. With a consistent role and unintimidating matchup on deck, Jones looks like a decent flex play in Week 4.

JAX WR Marvin Jones - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 vs. Arizona Cardinals
Marvin Jones's early returns with Trevor Lawrence have been promising. Jones has 20 targets over the first two games of the season, turning those looks into a 5-77-1 line in Week 1 and a 6-55-1 line in Week 2 against a tough Denver secondary. The Jacksonville offense hasn't been pretty to this point, but Jones appears to have developed an early rapport with Lawrence, particularly near the end zone. With Laviska Shenault banged up, Jones could be needed to shoulder an even larger load this week against the Cardinals' mediocre secondary. Fantasy managers can ride Jones as a WR3 until we see a reason to remove him from lineups.

JAX WR Marvin Jones - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 vs. Denver Broncos
Marvin Jones's Jaguars debut resulted in a 5-77-1 line on nine targets, tying Laviska Shenault for second on the team in targets behind D.J. Chark's 12. Jones's day would have looked a lot less encouraging had he not caught a short touchdown from Trevor Lawrence in garbage time. It appears that targets will be distributed fairly evenly between Shenault, Chark, and Jones, meaning Jones's fantasy value will likely be tied to finding the endzone most weeks. It will be much tougher to score a touchdown this week when the Jags host the Broncos and their formidable secondary. Try not to get sucked in by Jones's touchdown last week and keep him on fantasy benches for the tough matchup in Week 2.
