2019 Fantasy Outlook
Entering his third season in the league after going undrafted out of Jacksonville in 2016, Jones didn't record his first professional catch until Week 12 of last season when injuries and trades depleted the Lions' receiving corps. Despite seeing 40-ish offensive snaps per game down the stretch, Jones finished the year with only 11 passes for 80 yards on a 45.8 percent catch rate - including an ineffective Week 17 performance in which he collected just six of 12 targets for 50 total yards. The No. 4 receiver job is up for grabs in Detroit, but Jones could have trouble beating out Brandon Powell and Tommylee Lewis. Read Past Outlooks

Peppered with targets

Jones snagged six of 12 targets for 50 yards during Sunday's victory over Green Bay.
ANALYSIS
Jones and Brandon Powell were the apples of quarterback Matthew Stafford's eye on a day without top target Kenny Golladay (chest), as the two combined to see 21 of Stafford's 32 pass attempts. While Jones was much less effective with his touches, he could have had a much bigger day had he been able to get in better position either of the two times he was targeted in the end zone. The inexperienced receiver also dropped a pair of seemingly catchable balls. Under contract with Detroit through the end of the 2019 season, Jones will now enter the offseason with aims of securing the No. 3 receiver role behind Golladay and Marvin Jones (knee) ahead of the new campaign.

2016 Fantasy Outlook
A rookie out of tiny Jacksonville University, Jones has NFL size and athleticism with good hands but a lack of blazing speed kept him from being drafted despite an impressive showing at Florida's pro day. Dallas has a knack for spotting and nurturing talent among UDFAs however, so despite the fact that they have an apparently crowded depth chart at wide receiver, Jones finds himself in one of the best possible organizations for his football future. He hasn't looked out of place through the offseason and early part of training camp, but even if he continues to prove himself the practice squad might still be his ultimate destination as a rookie.
