Marvin Jones, WR, Bengals

2014 Outlook: Super Sleeper (high risk/potential)Last updated on Aug-14-2014 by Mark Morales-Smith
Marvin Jones had a nice sophomore season opposite A.J. Green. Jones caught 51 passes for 712 yards and scored an impressive 10 touchdowns. Expect much of the same from this former Cal pass-catcher. While Green will eat up many of Cincinnati's targets, there is no reason Jones can't score and take advantage of lots of man-to-man coverage. Jones is a very good bye week fill-in; especially if he gets hot the way he did last year. Additionally, if Green were to get hurt, Jones would become a must-add receiver across all formats. If you believe in the ability of receivers to really come into their own in their third years, 2014 is Jones' year to blow up.
Update (08/14): Jones broke his foot on Saturday August 9. He is expected to miss at minimum of six weeks. The Bengals' blossoming WR2 could also be put on IR/designated to return. If he was, he would be forced to sit out at least eight weeks. Mohamed Sanu is the favorite to fill Jones' role throughout his absence. Be sure to monitor this injury, Jones could hold solid value upon his return.
According to Marvin Jones, he has no more limitations due to his ankle surgery. A foot and ankle injuries cost him his entire 2014 season after a breakout 2013 campaign. In 2013, he caught 51 passes for 712 yards and 10 TDs. He will look to improve off that and put last season behind him.Fantasy Analysis:
Jones can be a nice sleeper pick in 2015. A.J. Green will draw so much attention opposite him that it should allow him to run free. Any receiver that can catch double-digit touchdowns has fantasy value. He is definitely worth a late round flier. If he stays healthy I expect him to produce and outperform his 2013 numbers.

|8.06||Bluefish Blitz - Taking Vernon Davis left me without a great wr3. I could've had Terrance Williams/Pitta but ended up with Davis/Jones. That's ok if Jones can get the playing time and targets that his talent deserves. Having AJ on the other side makes for a lot of single coverage|
