News: 5 days agoJones was targeted once but did not catch a pass during Thursday's 34-20 win over Green Bay.
Spin: After logging over half of the offensive snaps in Week 1, Jones has seen his snap share decline with each passing week. With Josh Reynolds and Kalif Raymond effectively complementing top receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown and tight end Sam LaPorta, there's no reason to expect Jones' usage to spike anytime soon. The return of Jameson Williams (suspension) in Week 7 will make it even harder for the veteran wideout to make a dent in the box score.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Jones is back with the Lions after a two-year stint in Jacksonville. Jones' three best fantasy campaigns came during his five seasons in Detroit (2016-20), one of which was an 11th-place finish back in 2017. Of course, that was when Jones was in his prime at age 27. He's now 33 years old and coming off a season in which he posted his lowest target share (15%) since 2013 and his worst fantasy PPG mark (7.3) since his rookie season (2012). The Detroit offense is on the ascent, so Jones could have some fantasy value during Jameson Williams' six-game suspension, but he'll eventually fall in line behind him and Amon-Ra St. Brown, leaving Jones without much fantasy appeal.
