2016 Outlook: Sleeper (undervalued)

Last updated on Oct-14-2016 by Shawn Childs


Update (10/13): Jones has been at least steady in each game this year with one impact game (6/205/2) on his resume. His targets have declined in his last three games (11, 8, 7, and 5) as defenses have tried to take him away from Stafford. The Rams lost their top CB last week plus their two starting DEs are injured. This should be a positive for Jones and the Lions' passing window. LA struggled in two games against small/quick WRs (Adam Humphries - 9/100 and John Brown - 10/144) with Mike Evans also having success (10/132/1). Overall, WRs have 74 catches for 890 yards and four TDs on 127 targets. Last week the Bills completed only five of their 14 passes to WRs with two leading to TDs. Jones should be active in this game and I expect a long play and a TD. This is an upside matchup.

2016 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #1
June 12th, 2016
7.09 Matt De Lima - Marvin Jones finally put together a relatively healthy season and should see his targets and opportunities increase within a more pass-happy offense.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #2
June 27th, 2016
6.06 Scout Fantasy - Matt De Lima - Trust is big in Fantasy Football. And the community doesn't yet trust Jones. But if you look around at the WRs in this range, he has by far the best potential. John Brown is a WR3. DeSean Jackson is wildly inconsistent. Corey Coleman is one of nine rookies who could blow up for Cleveland. Jones is a WR2 on a team that is definitely going to throw the ball a ton.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #3
August 10th, 2016
7.01 Rotocurve - Michael Rathburn - Jones signed for big money to help fill the void of Calvin Johnson retiring. Stafford will sling it a ton, and he was really good under Cooter. Jones has been a big time red zone machine, and I think he has a shot at 8-10 TD.
