News: 3 days agoJones caught four of six targets for 23 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 42-21 loss to Green Bay.
Spin: Jones' four-yard touchdown late in the first quarter gave Detroit a 14-3 lead, but it was all Packers from there. The veteran receiver is off to a pedestrian start with eight catches for 78 yards and a touchdown through two games. Jones will hope to pick up the pace against the Cardinals in Week 3.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Jones, Kenny Golladay and Danny Amendola played 12 games together last season. The target breakdown in those weeks were as follows: Jones had 86 (20% share), Golladay had 85 (20%), and Amendola saw 78 (18%). When Jones was out during Weeks 15-17, Golladay only edged Amendola 23-20 (24%-21%) in that category. This trio is probably closer than you realize in usage, which may lead to Jones being undervalued in fantasy again. He's now 30, but Jones has scored nine touchdowns in two of the past three seasons and was on pace for nine in 2018 prior to an injury. He finished 14th, 27th and 20th in fantasy points per game during that span.
