Week 4
Jones didn’t do anything wrong at Cincinnati, other than not get the ball. Tough to say how much of that was his fault.

His 3 targets did tie for 2nd on the team, on a night that saw Trevor Lawrence throw just 24 passes. Tavon Austin was the other Jaguar with 3, while Laviska Shenault was the only teammate to exceed that number.

We’re not going to worry about Austin consistently stealing work. And D.J. Chark’s 1st-quarter ankle fracture only further cements Jones as the team’s top outside option. Chalk up his disappointing Week 4 to natural variance at an inconsistent position.

Jones gets a nice matchup for bounce-back potential with Tennessee in Week 5.
Week 2
Fortunately for Jones, the Jaguars caught the Broncos off guard on the first drive of the game. Trevor Lawrence was able to drive them down the field, which led to 2 of Jones’ 6 catches, including the only TD the team would score in the game. After that, the Denver defense confused Lawrence to the point that he was unable to move the offense with any success. Although Jones led the team with 11 targets, fantasy managers had to settle for a solid but unspectacular stat line.
Jones has seen 11 and 9 targets in the first 2 games. And knowing that the Jaguars have a terrible defense, that’s likely to cause them to fall behind on the scoreboard each week. So Jones could end the season with a big target total. In addition, he’s the only one of the team’s WRs to catch half of the targets thrown to him, so at least the QB/WR duo has established some chemistry.
Week 1
Jones caught 5 of 9 targets for 77 yards and 1 TD in Week 1 against the Texans.
Jones tied Laviska Shenault with 9 targets a piece, only behind the 12 for teammate D.J. Chark. The Jags fell behind early to the Texans, which led to rookie QB Trevor Lawrence throwing the ball 51 times.
It’s difficult to parse through who will be the best Jaguars pass-catcher, but Jones is certainly an option as a WR3 for now.

Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Jones signed a 2-year, $12.5 million contract with the Jaguars in free agency. He got $9 million guaranteed.
  • He spent the past 5 seasons in Detroit, averaging 4.2 catches, 62.3 yards and .52 TDs per game.
  • Jones finished as a top-30 PPR WR in 3 of those 5 seasons, including a WR18 finish last year on a 76-978-9 line.
  • Among 87 WRs with 50+ targets last season, Jones ranked 37th in yards per target, 52nd in yards per route run and 39th in Pro Football Focus receiving grade.
  • Jones beat new teammates Laviska Shenault and D.J. Chark in PFF receiving grade last year.
  • The Jaguars got a big QB upgrade when they selected Trevor Lawrence with the #1 overall pick of this year’s draft.
  • Lawrence was excellent throwing deep last year, earning an elite 97.7 PFF grade on deep passes. That meshes well with Jones, who’s been a strong downfield receiver throughout his career. He ranked 21st among 96 qualifying WRs in PFF deep receiving grade last year.
  • The Jaguars remade their coaching staff this offseason, hiring Urban Meyer as HC and Darrell Bevell at OC.
  • This will be Meyer’s 1st NFL stint after over 30 years in the college ranks. He most recently served as Ohio State's HC from 2012-2018, leading the Buckeyes to an 83-9 record and 1 national championship. He also won 2 titles among 6 seasons as Florida's HC and spent 2 years before that as HC at Utah.
  • Meyer is an offensive-minded coach. He deployed a spread offense for much of his time in college and prioritizes speed.
  • Jones played under Bevell in Detroit the past 2 seasons.

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.

James Johnson of Jaguars Wire says that WR Marvin Jones "was the favorite target of rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence in training camp." It's certainly worth noting here that WR D.J. Chark missed most of August after surgery for a hand fracture. That could only help Jones' prominence, obviously. But it's also worth noting that Jones remains 2+ rounds behind both Chark and Laviska Shenault in fantasy football draft ADP. We're not assuming Jones will stand out as the lead target here, but the lack of clarity to the situation adds appeal to snagging the latest option in drafts. Jones has long given us wide swings in week-to-week production. But he also remained fantasy-viable into his age-30 season last year. Jones finished the past 2 seasons 18th and 28th (in 13 games) among PPR wideouts.

Jaguars WR Marvin Jones is dealing with an AC joint injury in 1 of his shoulders, HC Urban Meyer said. Jones is questionable for the final preseason game vs. Dallas but "should be fine" for Week 1, per Meyer. We'll keep an eye on the situation but aren't adjusting Jones' projections.

WR Marvin Jones has agreed to a 2-year, $14.5 million deal with the Jaguars, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. (That includes $9.2 million guaranteed.) Jones reunites with OC Darrell Bevell, who ran the Detroit offense the past 2 years and now serves as Jacksonville's OC. Jones also joins a receiving corps led by D.J. Chark and 2nd-year WR Laviska Shenault. Those 3 figure to lead the depth chart, leaving little room for Keelan Cole, Chris Conley or Collin Johnson to find relevance. Jones played all 16 games last year for the 1st time in 3 seasons, catching a career-high 76 balls for 978 yards and 9 TDs. His arrival complicates the target outlook for Chark and Shenault.

Lions WR Marvin Jones (knee) isn’t listed on the final injury report. He was sidelined on Wednesday, limited on Thursday and a full-go on Friday. So the knee isn’t a real concern heading into this weekend’s game against the Falcons. But Jones has done nothing so far this season to earn a spot in your fantasy lineup.

Lions WR Marvin Jones (knee) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. That gives him a shot to play against the Falcons this weekend. We'll get another update on Jones tomorrow.
