Notches two receptions in Week 18

Jones recorded two catches (on six targets) for 29 yards during Saturday's 20-16 win versus the Titans.

Analysis: After posting no more than 22 yards in five consecutive games following a Week 11 bye, Jones paced all Jaguars with 61 yards and seven targets last Sunday in Houston. His Week 18 performance thus is in line with his recent standard, Week 17 aside, but at the very least the Jaguars were able to clinch the AFC South title, meaning he's on pace for action in the wild-card round next weekend.

Leads receiving corps Sunday

Jones caught six of seven targets for 61 yards during Sunday's 31-3 win over the Texans.

Analysis: The 32-year-old was Jacksonville's only pass catcher with any notable production in Sunday's blowout, as QB Trevor Lawrence attempted just 21 passes for 152 yards. It was the first time since Week 9 that Jones had more than three receptions or 40 receiving yards.

Just 15 yards in win

Jones caught three of four targets for 15 yards during Thursday's 19-3 win over the Jets.

Analysis: Evan Engram had seven receptions for 113 yards during Thursday's contest and was the only Jacksonville pass catcher with at least 30 yards. Jones is averaging 1.8 receptions and 21.0 yards across the past six games and has minimal fantasy relevance, especially with Engram now enjoying a consistent role in the passing game.

Catches touchdown in OT win

Jones caught two of six targets for 17 yards and touchdown during Sunday's 40-34 overtime win over the Cowboys.

Analysis: The veteran wideout finished fourth on the team in targets, but his only play of note Sunday was a 10-yard touchdown reception during the third quarter. Jones has eight catches for 111 yards and two touchdowns across the past five games. He plays in infrequent role in Jacksonville's aerial attack and doesn't have much fantasy utility while Christian Kirk and Zay Jones remain healthy.

Single target in win

Jones caught his lone target for 22 yards during Sunday's 36-22 win against the Titans.

Analysis: The 32-year-old played a season-low offensive snaps and saw only one target, while No. 4 wideout Jamal Agnew had four touches for 44 yards despite seeing only 11 snaps. Jones has multiple receptions in just one of the past four games and has six catches for 94 yards and a touchdown during that span.

Dec 12, 2022 11:41 AM EST

One catch Week 13

Jones caught one of four targets for 17 yards during Sunday's 40-14 loss to the Lions.

Analysis: The veteran wideout played 68 percent of the offensive snaps, but Christian Kirk was the team's only standout on a day where Jacksonville mustered only 266 offensive yards. Jones has only five receptions for 72 yards across the past three games, though he did catch a touchdown during that span.

Secures second touchdown

Jones caught all three of his targets for 22 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 28-27 win over the Ravens.

Analysis: The 32-year-old once again operated as Jacksonville's No. 3 wideout, and he ranked fifth on the team in targets during Sunday's victory. Jones has 31 catches for 368 yards and two touchdowns in 10 games this season, and his fantasy outlook will remain limited while Christian Kirk and Zay Jones remain ahead of him on the depth chart.

Catches one pass in loss

Jones caught one of three targets for 33 yards during Sunday's 27-17 loss to the Chiefs.

Analysis: Jones played only 69 percent of Jacksonville's offensive snaps Sunday while Christian Kirk and Zay Jones played an every-down role and combined for 22 targets. It's the second time in the past three games Marvin Jones has failed to record more than one reception. He enters Jacksonville's Week 11 bye with 28 catches for 346 yards and one touchdown in nine contests.

Nov 14, 2022 6:55 AM EST

Five catches against Raiders

Jones recorded five catches on six targets for 48 yards in Sunday's 27-20 win over the Raiders.

Analysis: Jones bounced back from a catchless performance in Week 8 to finish second on the Jaguars in targets, yards and receptions. His longest gain of the day went for 15 yards, though he now has below 50 receiving yards in seven of his nine games on the campaign. It's difficult to project that things get much better for Jones, as the Jaguars primarily run their offense through Christian Kirk and Travis Etienne.

No catches in London

Jones failed to catch any of three targets during Sunday's 21-17 loss to the Broncos in London.

Analysis: Jones had 11 catches for 161 yards in his previous two games, but he had zero receptions Sunday for the second time this season. The 32-year-old's involvement in the passing game has been inconsistent this year, and QB Trevor Lawrence's continued struggles further limits the wideout fantasy outlook.

Oct 30, 2022 2:00 PM EST

57 yards on eight targets

Jones caught four of eight targets for 57 yards during Sunday's 23-17 loss to the Giants.

Analysis: The veteran wideout returned from a one-game absence Sunday and he finished third on the team in targets. Jones totaled only 104 receiving yards through the first four weeks of the season, but he has 11 catches for 161 yards in his past two games.

Oct 24, 2022 10:52 AM EST

Cleared for Week 7

Jones (hamstring) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Analysis: Jones sat out last week with the hamstring injury but will return to action Sunday after being listed as questionable. The 32-year-old hasn't been consistently featured in Jacksonville's aerial attack this season, though he caught seven of 11 targets for 104 yards during his last game Week 5 versus the Texans.

Oct 23, 2022 8:43 AM EST

Says he will play

Jones (hamstring), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants, said that he will play, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Jones missed last week's loss to the Colts, but returned to practice this week but was limited. His status for Sunday won't be confirmed until about 90 minutes before a 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff.

Oct 23, 2022 12:57 AM EST

Questionable for Week 7

Jones (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Analysis: After making an abrupt appearance on the Jaguars' final Week 6 injury report last Friday as limited due to a hamstring injury, Jones was downgraded to out one day later. This week, he again has had a cap on his practice reps and enters the weekend with his status up in the air. Jones' last appearance Week 5 against the Texans marked his most productive outing of the campaign by a large margin (7-104-0 on 11 targets), but his standing for Sunday won't be confirmed until about 90 minutes before a 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff.

Oct 21, 2022 1:27 PM EST

Limited Thursday

Jones (hamstring) was a limited practice participant Thursday.

Analysis: After seemingly injuring the hamstring in the Friday practice prior to Jacksonville's Week 6 loss to Indianapolis, Jones has logged two limited practices to open the week of their Week 7 matchup. So long as he remains on that course he should have a good chance to make his return against the Giants on Sunday.

Oct 20, 2022 1:27 PM EST

Limited in practice

Jones (hamstring) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

Analysis: Jones was added to the injury report last Friday and ended up missing Sunday's loss to the Colts. His ability to practice, even in a limited capacity, suggests the hamstring injury isn't too serious, but that doesn't necessarily mean he'll be ready to face the Giants on Sunday. Tim Jones and Kendric Pryor could have an opportunity ahead, as Jamal Agnew (knee) missed practice Wednesday after getting injured in the Week 6 loss.

Oct 19, 2022 1:17 PM EST

Out ahead of Sunday's matchup

Jones (hamstring) has been downgraded to out and will not play Sunday against the Colts, Mark Long of the Associated Press reports.

Analysis: It appears as if Jones' late-week injury will ultimately keep him out of the divisional matchup after all. The veteran has fluctuated between critical target hog and complete non entity in recent weeks so it's unclear exactly who benefits with Jones sidelined. Expect Jamal Agnew and possibly Tim Jones to see additional playing time as a result.

Oct 15, 2022 10:29 AM EST

Bothered by hamstring injury

Jones is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts due to a hamstring injury.

Analysis: Jones hadn't been included on the Jaguars' Week 6 injury report until he showed up Friday as a limited participant in practice due to the hamstring issue. The extent of the injury isn't yet known, but the Jaguars are seemingly hopeful that the wideout will make enough progress in the next two days to gain clearance for the Week 6 contest. Fellow receiver Zay Jones (ankle) is also listed as questionable following a limited practice Friday, so the Jaguars could be shorthanded at the position if neither of the Joneses are available Sunday.

Oct 14, 2022 1:53 PM EST

Vintage performance in loss

Jones corralled seven of 11 targets for 104 yards in Sunday's 13-6 loss to the Texans.

Analysis: Jones led all Jacksonville receivers in all categories despite the return of Zay Jones (knee). The veteran wideout looked like the prime version of himself, something fantasy and DFS managers were hoping for last week (zero catches on one target) when Zay was sidelined. The 32-year-old continues to start and now has a big game under his belt, but he hadn't topped 38 yards in any of his previous four contests, despite logging heavy snaps in every contest. The Jaguars offense is too unpredictable to recommend Jones in a matchup against the Colts next Sunday.

Oct 9, 2022 4:39 PM EST

No catches Week 4

Jones failed to catch his lone target during Sunday's 29-21 loss to the Eagles.

Analysis: The 32-year-old appeared primed for an increased role Sunday with Zay Jones (ankle) inactive, but rainy conditions and Trevor Lawrence's five giveaways stymied the offense. The turnovers limited Jacksonville to only 47 offensive plays, and Marvin Jones was an afterthought in the passing game with only a single target. He'll need to be more involved in the offense going forward to find much fantasy relevance.
