Jones done for the season | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Lions WR Marvin Jones has been placed on IR with an ankle injury suffered near the end of Sunday's loss to the Vikings. He ends the 2019 campaign with a 62-779-9 line -- although 6 of those scores came in 2 games. Turning 30 in March, Jones should be back as Detroit's #2 WR next year. WR Chris Lacy is next up on the Lions' depth chart for the rest of this season, but he's not a realistic fantasy option. Jones' absence should just mean more targets for WRs Kenny Golladay and Danny Amendola.

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.

Lions WR Marvin Jones (knee) didn't practice on Wednesday. We haven't heard anything about this knee issue. Jones has been brutal this season, averaging just 29 yards per game. Even if he plays in Sunday's plus matchup vs. Atlanta, he can't be trusted in fantasy lineups.

Lions WR Marvin Jones made his preseason debut against the Bills on Friday night. He was sidelined for at least a week of practice in mid-August with knee trouble, but that doesn't appear to be an issue any longer. Jones is a fine value at his 9th-round, WR43 ADP.
