Jones caught six passes on nine targets for 109 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 30-23 loss to the Vikings.

EDGE Analysis

Jones dominated one of the best secondaries in the league despite having arguably the toughest matchup assignment of all Lions receivers, that being Vikings 2016 Pro Bowl corner Xavier Rhodes. His first score came on a mid-range post pattern that barely broke the plane of the goal line, while his second was much more impressive, as the lanky veteran beat double coverage to haul in a 43-yard bomb. Jones, who entered Thursday's game tied for the third-highest touchdown mark in the league (six), now has a chance to finish Week 12 in second place in that category. The touchdown maven will look to keep it going in Week 13 against the Ravens but has another tough matchup awaiting him in the form of Jimmy Smith, who's Pro Football Focus' eighth-highest graded corner of the season.

Jones grabbed four of seven targets for 85 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 27-24 win over the Bears.

EDGE Analysis

Jones burned Chicago deep in the second half, laying out for a 28-yard touchdown as part of Detroit's 21-point second-quarter explosion. It was Jones' fourth touchdown in his last five games. During that streak, he's also topped 85 yards in four games. The red-hot target comes up against a stiff test next week against a Vikings squad that held him to two catches in Week 4.

Jones caught one of two targets for 22 yards during Sunday's 38-24 victory over the Browns.

EDGE Analysis

Jones' two targets tied for the lowest he's seen all season and corresponds with rookie Kenny Golladay's return from a hamstring injury. Coming off a three-week stretch in which Jones found the end zone three times while averaging 12 targets and 110.3 receiving yards per game, many fantasy owners were likely expecting a bigger game in such a favorable matchup. However, with Golladay back in the fold, Jones isn't the Lions' only deep threat anymore. Thus, Jones could continue to see fewer opportunities down the field going forward.

Jones caught seven of 11 targets for 107 yards and two touchdowns in Monday night's 30-17 win over the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

Jones hauled in a 25-yard touchdown on Detroit's opening offensive drive, then caught an 11-yard score to put the game away in the fourth quarter. In doing so, Jones once again found pay dirt twice in Green Bay, where he ripped off 205 yards and two touchdowns in his visit last season. Averaging over six catches and 110 yards over his past three games, Jones will look to keep it rolling in a favorable Week 10 matchup versus the Browns.

Jones caught six passes on 11 targets for 128 yards during Sunday's 20-15 loss to the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

Even with Golden Tate active and in the starting lineup, Jones was easily Detroit's most-effective playmaker Sunday against a Steelers defense that entered the game with a league-best 5.6 yards per pass attempt. However, this marks just his first 100-yard performance of the year and third since joining the Lions prior to the 2016 season. Furthermore, Jones has only seen double-digit targets four times in that same time frame. When he hasn't seen that kind of workload in other games this season, Jones is only averaging 30.6 receiving yards per game.

Jones snagged six of 14 targets for 96 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 52-38 loss to New Orleans.

EDGE Analysis

Jones' made the highlight reel midway through the third quarter as Matthew Stafford lofted a ball down the right sideline and Jones spun around and grabbed it with one hand before falling to the turf for a 22-yard score. Obviously, Jones' 14 targets were, in part, due to Detroit falling behind by multiple scores early, but there seems to be a trend leaning toward Jones. Through the first four weeks of the season, Golden Tate led Detroit in targets with 32, 14 more than Jones. Over the last two weeks, however, Jones leads Tate 22 to 15. Keep an eye on this trend as it develops.

Jones brought in six of eight targets for 54 yards in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

Jones was targeted by quarterback Matthew Stafford early and often, notching season highs in receptions, targets and receiving yards in the process. The 27-year-old wideout's production usually takes a back seat to that of position mate Golden Tate, but Jones certainly has the size and speed to break out in any given week, as he demonstrated on multiple occasions early last season. He'll look to provide that caliber of production when the Lions tangle with the Saints in a potential Week 6 road shootout.

Jones caught two of five targets for 42 yards during Sunday's 14-7 victory over the Vikings.

EDGE Analysis

Despite receiving a hefty dose of 2016 Pro Bowl CB Xavier Rhodes, Jones still managed to post a season-high in receiving yardage while tying for the team lead in targets. However, that's not saying much, as he only logged 42 yards and three other receivers (Golden Tate, TJ Jones, Darren Fells) saw just as many looks. As long as QB Matthew Stafford continues to spread the ball around as much as he does, there doesn't figure to be much upside for any Lions wideout on a consistent basis, Jones included. Next week probably won't be any different when Detroit takes on a Carolina team that has allowed the seventh-fewest passing yards per game through four weeks.

Jones caught three of six targets for 24 yards in Sunday's 30-26 loss to the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

Jones hasn't commanded enough volume to suggest he's anything more than a touchdown-dependent fantasy option and Sunday's outing only helped solidify that notion. Not only is he clearly behind Golden Tate and Theo Riddick in the pecking order for targets, but Eric Ebron and Kenny Golladay have been seeing similar workloads to Jones as well. Deploying the fifth-year Cal product isn't for the faint of heart in Week 4 against the Vikings.

Jones' lone reception on five targets produced a 27-yard touchdown in Monday night's 24-10 win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Jones opened the scoring with a stellar catch on a deep route early on. While that gave Jones his second touchdown in as many games this season, it also marked his lone grab of the evening. Thus far, Jones' stock has been buoyed by his trips to pay dirt, so he'll aim for a more well-rounded performance in Week 3 versus the Falcons.
