What You Need to Know:
Draft Sharks Bottom Line:
Jones turned 31 in March but remained plenty effective in Detroit last year, posting a 76-978-9 line and finishing 18th among WRs in PPR points.
Now Jones heads to Jacksonville under new HC Urban Meyer and QB Trevor Lawrence. We’ll watch for clues this summer about how targets will be divvied between Jones, D.J. Chark and Laviska Shenault -- but don’t be surprised if Jones plays a big role in this passing game. He notably played for new Jaguars OC Darrell Bevell in Detroit the past 2 seasons.
Highlight Jones as a strong value pick in the later rounds of your fantasy draft.
