Shark Bites

Jaguars WR Marvin Jones was added to Friday's injury report with a hamstring. He was limited in practice and is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Colts. Jones was a very fringy fantasy option to begin with, so you should avoid him at less than 100%. Jones' absence on Sunday would be a boost for WRs Christian Kirk and Zay Jones.

Lions WR Marvin Jones has been activated from the non-football-injury list. He missed the first week of camp but will now look to carve out an early-season role while WR Jameson Williams serves his six-game suspension. The 33-year-old Jones is not an exciting fantasy pick.

Lions WR Marvin Jones will begin training camp on the non-football injury list. No word yet on what's ailing him. Jones has a shot to open the season with a significant role, while WR Jameson Williams serves his six-game suspension. But the 33-year-old Jones is not an exciting fantasy pick. We'll see when he's able to get back on the field.

Lions writer Jeff Risdon doesn’t believe WR Marvin Jones is a roster “lock.” Behind Amon-Ra St. Brown and Jameson Williams, Risdon names Kalif Raymond and Josh Reynolds as safe bets to make the team. Jones, 33, signed a one-year deal worth $3 million (all guaranteed) in March. We expect him to make the final roster, but he’s not someone we’re circling on cheat sheets as a late-round pick. Jones underwhelmed with 46-529-3 in 16 games with Jacksonville last season.

The Lions signed WR Marvin Jones to a 1-year, $3 million deal. It's a reunion after Jones spent 2016-2020 in Detroit. He averaged 859 yards and 7.2 TDs across those 5 seasons but is coming off a disappointing 46-529-3 line in Jacksonville this past year. Jones ranked 79th in yards per route run and 87th in Pro Football Focus receiving grade among 96 qualifying WRs. The 33-year-old will duke it out with Josh Reynolds and Kalif Raymond for snaps behind Amon-Ra St. Brown and Jameson Williams in Detroit. Jones might provide a few spike weeks for best-ball squads if he wins the #3 WR job. But he's unlikely to be a reliable option in lineup-setting fantasy leagues.

Jaguars WR Marvin Jones (hamstring) is active for today’s game vs. the Giants. He was limited in practice all week after missing last Sunday’s loss to the Colts. Jones would be a risky Week 7 fantasy start.
