Marvin Jones
What are you guys doing with this guy?? Only has 3 catches for 64 yards through 2 games. But has 2 TDs... Not bad enough to drop, not consistent enough to start or trade. Hate owning this type of player. I picked up Golladay last week, hoping one of them would just emerge and I could drop the other. Hopefully playing Atlanta at home this week turns into a shootout and gives us something more to go on

re: Marvin Jones
Hard to say. Might try trading him if someone is just looking at his points. I agree that you can't count on TDs only.

That being said, the team as a whole only had like 120 passing yards last night. So if you look at his 27 yards as a percentage of the teams total, it's a decent share. In games where Stafford throws for his usual 250-300 yards, I'd expect Jones to be around that 50 yard mark; which is decent for a flex/WR3 type guy.


So I guess the short version is try to sell high, but if not, hold and he should be ok.

It's hard to judge the Lions offense because they've faced two of the toughest defenses in the first 2 weeks.

re: Marvin Jones
Jones was up and down last year. He's still a main cog in a pass happy O. He is the quintessential bye week WR

re: Marvin Jones
I drafted Jones for my bench after seeing him in the preseason. He's a bye-week fill in for me, so I'm not trading him.

My league has deep rosters, so he's valuable to my team. Bye weeks start in just a few weeks.

re: Marvin Jones
I'm kind of wondering the same. Have both Marvin Jones and Golladay on my bench and wondering whether they are worthy of a roster spot.

I read during the preseason that Marvin Jones worked with a personal trainer in the off-season to build up his lower body so that he could break more tackles and be involved in the short passing game (i.e. similar to G. Tate). That hasn't happened yet.

Good points. I'm probably going to have to drop Golladay though. I was just hoping the decision would become a little clearer through 2 weeks. Oh well
