Makes touchdown catch versus Bears
WRNew York Giants
August 16, 2019
Jones caught three of his four targets for 32 yards and a touchdown during Friday's 32-13 preseason win over the Bears.
ANALYSIS
Jones led the team in targets and helped them surge ahead with a 15-yard touchdown catch courtesy of Daniel Jones in the second quarter. It was his first notable contribution since joining the team a few weeks ago and a boon to his case to make the team as it struggles with attrition in the wideout ranks. Jones should have another chance to contribute Thursday against the Bengals.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
2016
2015
2014
Jones enters the 2017 season clearly buried on the depth chart behind the established Golden Tate and Marvin Jones, not to mention the ascending 2017 third-rounder, Kenny Golladay. However, Jones is capable of playing both out wide and in the slot, making him the next man up should injuries strike any of the receivers ahead of him. While Jones and Tate have combined to miss only one game over the last four years, Golladay missed five games as a rookie in 2017. Jones should be ready to capitalize if Golladay misses any more time. With that said, injuries tend to be fickle in nature, making it far from a guarantee that Jones will surpass the career-high 400 offensive snaps he logged a season ago.
After posting a 10/132/1 receiving line across 10 games in 2015, Jones failed to make the Lions roster out of training camp last season but eventually found his way back after re-signing in December. He enters the 2017 campaign firmly behind Golden Tate and Marvin Jones on the depth chart and will face strong competition from third-round rookie Kenny Golladay for the No. 3 job.
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.
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.
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.
