RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Entering his second season, Jones is also in the mix of receivers who hope to see more targets with the promise of a more balanced distribution of targets in the Lions' offense this year. He caught 10 passes in 2016, with nine coming in the last five games. Jones is likely to compete with offseason signing Jeremy Kerley for a role in three receiver sets.

2015

Jones' primary contribution in 2015 will be as a returner, sitting atop the depth chart as both a kick and punt returner. As his 64-yard touchdown reception in the preseason finale exhibited, however, he can also serve as an explosive target in the passing game. Jones missed his entire rookie 2014 season due to a shoulder injury dating back to college. He was productive in his senior season at Notre Dame, hauling in 70 passes for 1,108 yards and nine scores, earning himself a sixth round selection at the hands of the Lions.

2014

Jones' sharp routes, good hands and decent speed should eventually make him an effective slot receiver in the NFL, but targets could be hard to come by behind Calvin Johnson even if Jones does seize the job right out of the gate.
