'A massive spike in production' possible for Bengals WR Marvin Jones


'A massive spike in production' possible for Bengals WR Marvin Jones

Marvin Jones @MarvinJonesJr' 2013 stat line looks good, but it doesn't look like anything too exciting. Now, 10 touchdowns are impressive, but 51 catches and 712 yards in 16 games? Most people would probably look at that, shrug, and move on.
What they don't know is that Jones was on the field for only 44 percent of the Bengals' snaps last season. Jones snap count rose through the final month of the season, topping out at 77.7 percent in Cincinnati's postseason loss to the Chargers. Such usage is expected to become the norm this season, and Paul Dehner Jr. of the Cincinnati Enquirer wrote Tuesday that more snaps and an improving rapport with quarterback Andy Dalton @andydalton14 "could mean a massive spike in production" for Jones.

Fantasy Analysis:

Only three players scored at least six touchdowns last year on fewer than 725 snaps. Jones was one of those players, and notched 10 in 555 snaps. Dehner obviously believes Jones can be one of the best receivers in the NFL -- he writes that Jones and A.J. Green @ajgreen_18 might be the best WR duo in the league right now. While such an opinion will lead to some eyes rolling, Jones is a superb playmaker who could be a ridiculous steal at his current tenth-round average draft position.
