RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Houdini has nothing on Marvin Jones. After putting up 23 catches for 482 yards over the season's first four weeks, Jones had only 32 catches for 448 yards over his final 11 games, as Golden Tate took over as the team's No. 1 WR. At 6-2, 198, Jones has decent size, and he can get downfield with 4.46 40 speed -- 16 catches of 20-plus yards, four of 40. Moreover, he averaged a highly efficient 16.9 YPC (3rd) and 9.0 YPT (10th). The problem for Jones -- aside from all his production coming early in the year -- is the Lions have become a dink-and-dunk passing offense, and that favors Tate and running back Theo Riddick. On the bright side, there's little depth behind Jones -- rookie third-rounder Kenny Golladay is still a project, and former sixth-rounder T.J. Jones has 32 career NFL targets -- so he should remain the team's No. 2 target.

2016

An odd choice to fill the departed Calvin Johnson's shoes, Jones should nonetheless immediately find himself in a more prominent role in Detroit opposite Golden Tate. At 6-2, 198, with 4.46 speed, Jones profiles as a useful complementary threat, able to stretch the field (four catches of 40-plus on 103 targets last year) and capable of making plays in the end zone, given his height and wingspan. Jones wasn't especially efficient last year – 12.6 YPC, 7.9 YPT – but that could change if he sees more downfield targets. It's unclear, though, whether Tate, who used to be a field stretcher, will reprise his dink-and-dunk role from last season. Either way, there should be plenty of targets left over for Jones, even after accounting for the team's pass-catching backs and tight end Eric Ebron.

2015

A broken foot and subsequent ankle injury cost Jones the entire 2014 season, but at press time he's expected to be a full participant in the team's offseason workouts and training camp. Before the injury, Jones had a strong 2013 campaign, with 14.0 YPC, 8.9 YPT and 10 touchdowns on just 80 targets. At 6-2, 198, with good (4.46 40) speed, Jones is a fluid route runner and has good hands. His ceiling is likely capped by the presence of star A.J. Green, and it's conceivable Jones could begin the year behind Mohamed Sanu, who saw 98 targets in 2014 when the Bengals receiving corps was decimated by injuries. But Jones has been a better and more efficient player than Sanu and has more upside should something happen to Green.

2014

Jones had a mini-breakout in Year 2 – at least as much of one as he could opposite target-hog A.J. Green. Jones averaged 14.0 YPC and 8.9 YPT last year, while scoring 10 times despite only 13 red-zone looks. At 6-2, 195, Jones is on the small end for a red-zone threat, but he has good speed (4.46 40), is a fluid runner and has good hands. The Bengals threw the ball quite a bit last year, and there’s a chance Jones’ role could grow after a strong showing down the stretch and in the playoff loss to the Chargers. Just keep in mind there are a lot of mouths to feed in this offense and that an August foot injury is in line to delay the start of his 2014 campaign.

2013

Jones caught just 18 balls (on 32 targets) for 201 yards and one touchdown last season. However, his conclusion to the 2012 campaign (at least four targets in each of the last five games, including the playoffs) makes him an interesting prospect entering his second season in 2013.

2012

Jones has the chance to make an impact during his first NFL season due to the uncertainty surrounding the Bengals' number two wide receiver position. Additionally, Jones has potential in the return game, so he is worth keeping an eye on.
