Marvin Jones Jr. Released By Lions

Detroit Lions wide receiver Marvin Jones Jr. announced on Tuesday that he was stepping away from the team due to personal family matters. Jones was then released by the team. "To be brief, I am stepping away from the team to take care of personal family matters," Jones wrote in part in an Instagram post. "Although this was no easy decision, I cannot be the person/player that I need to be for this team as well as tend to my family from afar." The veteran pass-catcher did not travel with the team to Baltimore in Week 7 and had very little production to begin the season, catching five passes for 35 yards on 10 targets. The 33-year-old didn't mention anything about retirement. The former fifth-rounder has played in 151 career games and has 547 catches for 7,421 yards and 58 touchdowns. With Jones out of the picture, Kalif Raymond could have a bigger role as wideout depth in Detroit.

Marvin Jones Jr. Stepping Away From Lions

Detroit Lions wide receiver Marvin Jones Jr. announced on social media that he is stepping away from the team to take care of personal family matters. Jones didn't travel with the team to Baltimore to face the Ravens in Week 7 and will now be away from the team for the foreseeable future. The 33-year-old veteran had not seen much of a role in the offense through six games, catching five of his 10 targets for 35 yards. In Jones' absence, Jameson Williams and Kalif Raymond could be on the field a bit more behind Amon-Ra St. Brown and Josh Reynolds in Detroit's receiving corps. Fantasy managers that were stashing Jones in really deep leagues can go ahead and drop him now.

Marvin Jones Jr. Ruled Out For Personal Reasons

Detroit Lions wide receiver Marvin Jones Jr. (personal) is not traveling with the team to Baltimore to face the Ravens in Week 7 and has been ruled out for Sunday's game for personal reasons. Jones has been well off the fantasy radar this year in his return to Detroit, as he's caught just five passes on 10 targets for 35 yards and no touchdowns in six contests. The 33-year-old has been buried on the receiver depth chart behind Amon-Ra St. Brown, Josh Reynolds, Jameson Williams and Kalif Raymond. His absence on Sunday shouldn't have a notable impact on the Lions offense one way or another in a tough matchup against the Ravens on the road.
