There is no 2017 profile for this player yet. Here is his 2016 profile:

2016 Outlook: Super Sleeper (high risk/potential)


Week 14 DFS Update (12/13): Jones has only 23 catches for 274 yards and a TD on 39 targets in his last six games. He has four TDs and no games with more than 100 yards receiving. In Week 8, he only had two catches for 12 yards on five targets vs. the Steelers. Pittsburgh's secondary played better last week with CB Brandon Boykin earning more playing time. Jones has some scoring and big play ability, but his targets (6.4) restrict his upside.

Week 13 DFS Update (12/5): Jones hasn't scored a TD in his last five games, with short production in four of his last five games (2/12, 5/78, 4/44, 4/60, and 3/25). He has two games of value (5/94/1 and 9/95/1) and is averaging 6.5 targets per game. In Week 9 Jones has five catches for 78 yards on six targets vs. the Browns. Cleveland has one solid CB (Tramon Williams) on the outside with Joe Haden still out with a concussion issue. Jones has high chance of facing a weak CB on a high percentage of plays. Possible upside value.

Jones had a surprising season for Cincinnati in 2013 as he gave the Bengals big-play ability on the opposite side of Green. Marvin had seven or more targets in six of his last eight games that season, but he played an average of only 42 snaps per contest out of a possible 76. His fantasy value was largely delivered by his scoring ability (10 TDs). He scored seven of those touchdowns at home. His best game of the year came in Week 8 against the Jets when he caught eight passes for 122 yards and four scores. Amazingly, he did all of his damage that day while only being on the field for only 18 plays. Jones was unable to improve upon his 2013 numbers last season thanks to an ankle injury which ended up being a broken bone in his foot and costing him the entire season. He is expected to be the Bengals' No. 3 WR this year and will hopefully provide a deep threat while playing behind Green and Sanu. At best, Jones is a short-term injury cover or bye-week replacement in fantasy.
