Marvin Jones should practice this week


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2014) Bengals receiver Marvin Jones was placed on the PUP list with an ankle injury Monday, but it's just a tweak and he's expected to practice this week, reports Pro Football Talk. The Bengals open training camp Thursday.

Jones is considered day-to-day. He suffered the injury at a passing camp arranged by quarterback Andy Dalton, the report said.


Marvin Jones dealing with ankle injury


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/21/2014) The Bengals placed receiver Marvin Jones on the Active/Non-Football Injury list with an ankle injury. Their training camp opens Thursday.

Jones participated in the team's offseason workouts and minicamp so he could have hurt himself over the last month, but the injury isn't believed to be too serious as he's posted multiple pictures of himself on Twitter recently, including some of him at the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards. He also worked out as recently as July 8


Marvin Jones in line for 'massive spike' statistically?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/16/2014) Bengals receiver Marvin Jones scored 10 touchdowns despite playing 555 snaps last season, one of three receivers in the NFL who scored at least six touchdowns while playing under 725 snaps. 

The Cincinnati Enquirer believes Jones could be in line for a "massive spike in production" as he is expected to play much more often in 2014. 

Jones finished last season as the 16th best receiver in Fantasy, posting 10 or more points in six of 15 games. 


Marvin Jones ahead of Mohamed Sanu for No. 2 receiver job


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2014) After catching 10 touchdown passes last season, Bengals receiver Marvin Jones "appears to have taken over at No. 2 opposite [A.J.] Green," reports ESPN.com. But the website said Mohamed Sanu still has a chance to serve as the No. 2 receiver and the team hopes to play Sanu "a little more often this year."

Jones caught 51 passes for 712 yards and 10 scores, while Sanu had 47 grabs for 455 yards and two touchdowns last year.


Marvin Jones projected as No. 2 receiver


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2014) Wideout Marvin Jones is projected to start opposite A.J. Green in the Bengals' base offense, according to ESPN.com. Jones "earned the chance to be the No. 2 wideout after his play in 2013," surpassing Mohamed Sanu.

Jones split snaps with Sanu last season and finished with 51 catches for 712 yards and 10 touchdowns.


Marvin Jones has big game in losing effort


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2014) Bengals wide receiver Marvin Jones had a big game against San Diego.

Jones caught eight passes for 130 receiving yards. He was targeted a team-high 12 times. The Chargers did a good job limiting star wideout A.J. Green, but had no answer for Jones. Jones' biggest play came in the second quarter, when he caught a 49 yard pass from Andy Dalton which put the team in the red zone. 


Bengals get contributions from wide receivers


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/29/2013) Bengals wide receiver Marvin Jones caught five passes for 61 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 34-17 win over the Ravens. It was his 10th touchdown of the season, and he finishes 2013 with 51 receptions for 712 yards. These were all, by far, career highs for Jones. 

Fellow wide receiver Andrew Hawkins caught three passes for 74 yards. And Mohamed Sanu caught one pass for 12 yards. 

The Bengals finished the regular season 11-5 overall. 


Marvin Jones among Bengals' many beneficiaries


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/22/2013) Facing a Vikings defense that entered the game ranked 30th against the pass, the Bengals put on a passing display Week 16 in Cincinnati, and though quarterback Andy Dalton and wide receiver A.J. Green were the biggest winners, wide receiver Marvin Jones made some noise in his own right.

No, he didn't score a touchdown, ending his streak of consecutive games with one at two, but he did pick up 85 yards through the air, his second-most this season. He caught six of the seven passes thrown his way.

With 16 targets in his last two games, he seems to be as involved in the passing game as he was in Weeks 6-10, when he averaged 6.6 targets per game. He'll look to stay involved Week 17 against the Ravens.


Marvin Jones may keep it going


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/18/2013) Bengals wide receiver Marvin Jones has averaged 4.0 catches for 54.0 yards over his last two games, which may not seem like much, but after the 1.3 catches for 7.7 yards he averaged in his previous three, it's noteworthy. Of course, for it to pay dividends in Fantasy, he'll have to keep scoring touchdowns, as he has each of the last two weeks. He has a good chance of it Week 16 against Minnesota.

The Vikings rank 30th against the pass, surrendering 290.6 yards per game, and have given up the third-most Fantasy points to wide receivers this season. They've also allowed the most touchdown passes (32) of any team. They'll likely be without top cornerback Xavier Rhodes (concussion) again, which means A.J. Green will remain quarterback Andy Dalton's go-to guy, but Jones still figures to get his chances in this one.

Whether or not he gets the looks in the end zone is anybody's guess, but in leagues deep enough for him to matter, he may not be a complete waste of a lineup spot.


Marvin Jones catches ninth touchdown pass


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2013) Bengals receiver Marvin Jones scored for the second straight game Week 15, getting wide open for a 13-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter at Pittsburgh. Jones finished with five catches for 48 yards and is up to nine touchdowns this season.

Jones was targeted nine times, second most on the team. He'll face the Vikings in Week 16.


Bengals' probables all playing


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Seven Bengals were probable on the injury report, and all seven are active at Pittsburgh on Sunday night. Running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis (illness) will suit up along with linebacker Vontaze Burfict (thigh), defensive end Wallace Gilberry (knee), linebacker James Harrison (illness), safety George Iloka (concussion), wideout Marvin Jones (shoulder) and guard Kevin Zeitler (foot).


All but one on Bengals injury report probable for Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/13/2013) The Bengals are quite healthy heading into their Week 15 game against Indianapolis. Cornerback Terence Newman (knee) has been ruled out, but the rest of their Friday injury report features all probables.

That group includes linebackers James Harrison (illness) and Vontaze Burfict (illness/thigh), defensive end Wallace Gilberry (knee), running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis (illness), safety George Iloka (concussion), wide receiver Marvin Jones (shoulder) and guard Kevin Zeitler (foot).


Marvin Jones scores in Week 14


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/8/2013) Bengals wide receiver Marvin Jones caught three passes for 60 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 42-28 win over the Colts. Jones was targeted four times. 

Jones scored on a 29-yard first quarter pass. It was his first touchdown since his four-score breakout in Week 8. The 60 yards were the most since Week 9. 

The Bengals face the Steelers in Week 15. Jones caught three passes for 35 yards when the teams played in Week 2. 


Bengals secondary receivers an erratic crapshoot


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/4/2013) A.J. Green should get most of the attention in Week 14 against the Colts, leaving a trio of Bengals secondary receivers to get open and possibly have some value. Unfortunately, it's tough to pinpoint which receiver will have the big day. 

Marvin Jones broke out in Week 8 with four touchdowns against the Jets (as well as one each in each of the previous two games). But in his last three, Jones has caught just four passes for 23 total yards and no touchdowns. 

Mohamed Sanu has caught just one touchdown reception this season (in Week 11), and has been similarly held in check, with six receptions in his last three for 46 total yards. 

Andrew Hawkins -- the early-2012 sensation -- may be the most interesting of the three. He caught three passes for 65 yards in Week 13 against the Chargers, to very little fanfare (he missed the first eight weeks with an ankle injury). 

The Colts have been up-and-down in defending wide receivers this season. They've allowed 14 touchdowns to the position, but have two games with multiple wide receiver touchdowns allowed in the last four, and two with none. However, the two with zero allowed were against the Titans, who have an iffy passing game. 

Green should do the most damage against the Colts this Sunday, but there's room here for a No. 2. The problem is, there's no clear answer. The speedy deep threat (Hawkins) has the momentum. The typical No. 2 (Jones) matches the profile. And the big bruiser No. 2 (Sanu) was a force at the end of 2012. 

Someone should have a decent game from this group, but it's pure guesswork as to who it will be. All three can be left on the bench in most Fantasy formats. 


Marvin Jones, Mohamed Sanu held in check vs. Chargers


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Bengals wide receivers Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu failed to make any sort of impact during Sunday's win over the Chargers in Week 13.

Jones was targeted three times and finished with two catches for 12 yards. Sanu was held under 30 receiving yards for the four time over his last five games. He caught one of the two passes thrown his way for 9 yards in a 17-10 victory.

The Bengals will host the Colts in Week 14.

Could Mohamed Sanu, Marvin Jones help Fantasy owners out?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/28/2013) Everyone's starting A.J. Green in Fantasy play but not everyone is as confident in Bengals receivers Mohamed Sanu and Marvin Jones. Considering the matchup at San Diego, maybe the should be. 

The Chargers have allowed 12 touchdowns and 206.1 yards per game to receivers this season. Green will get his numbers but there should be plenty left over for the other Bengals guys.

The problem is that Sanu and Jones tend to eat away at each others' opportunities. Over their last three games Sanu has caught 11 of 23 targets for 99 yards and a touchdown and Jones, who once caught four touchdowns in a game and had a three-game streak of TDs, has caught just 6 of 16 targets for 77 yards and no touchdowns.

Neither guy seems like a good Fantasy choice but with targets and playing time favoring Sanu, he's probably the least risky. I wouldn't start either one unless I had to.  


Marvin Jones looking to increase offensive production


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/26/2013) You have probably noticed Bengals wide receiver Marvin Jones has been pretty non-existent since breaking out with a four-touchdown game Week 8 against the Jets. Well, Jones has noticed his decline in production as well.

"I did a good job of taking advantage of opportunities [before]," Jones said, per ESPN. "The last two games were what they were." 

Jones has totaled just six catches for 77 yards and no touchdowns in three games since Week 8. He's looking to get involved on offense again heading into Week 13 at San Diego.

"I'm ready to start it off again," Jones said. "I'm the type that wants to get into it early. Get the ball in my hands as early as possible. We have a lot of playmakers so if it's their day, so be it. That's the beauty of our team and offense. If someone takes away a certain part, there's always someone that is going to produce. But it's good to get all of us in a rhythm early."


Marvin Jones, Andrew Hawkins barely factor into blowout win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) Bengals wide receivers Marvin Jones and Andrew Hawkins were nearly nonexistent in Week 11 against the Browns, as both hauled in just one pass in a 41-20 win.

Both Jones and Hawkins were targeted just two times each in the game; Jones brought his lone catch in for 9 yards, while Hawkins' went for 6 yards.

Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton has struggled in recent weeks, which has hurt his receivers' production. They will try to get back on the same page after the team's upcoming bye week. They face the Chargers next in Week 13. 


Marvin Jones trending in wrong direction


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/14/2013) Since his four-touchdown game in Week 8, Bengals wide receiver Marvin Jones has struggled to get going. That could continue in Week 11, as Jones gets set to face the Browns this Sunday.

Jones has been held to five catches for 68 yards since his breakout performance, and now he has to face a team that held him without a catch in a previous meeting this season. In fact, Jones has just two catches for 21 yards in three career games against the Browns, who have done a solid job against wide receivers all season.

Opposing wide receivers average just 18.7 Fantasy points per game against the Browns, the 11th-lowest mark in the league. Jones looked like a breakout star just three weeks ago; now, our Fantasy experts have him ranked 34th on average among wide receivers for Week 11. He is a low-end Fantasy option, though one that still has obvious upside. 


Marvin Jones held to one catch in Week 10


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/10/2013) Bengals wide receiver Marvin Jones -- who had five touchdowns over his previous three games -- was held to one catch for two yards in Sunday's 20-17 overtime loss to the Ravens. Jones also ran once for seven yards. 

Jones was targeted seven times, which was his average over his three previous games. And he almost had a second catch in the third quarter, but Lardarius Webb wrestled it away from Jones as the two tumbled to the ground, and it was ruled an interception. but with windy conditions and Andy Dalton constantly being pressured, Jones managed just the one catch. 

The Bengals return home to face the Browns in Week 11. 


Marvin Jones worth a start in most leagues


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/7/2013) Marvin Jones followed up his Week 8 bonanza with a game that fit perfectly alongside the two games preceding the breakout -- four catches on seven targets for 66 yards (he averaged 64 yards on 3.5 catches in Weeks 6 and 7). 

While Jones has a decent matchup in Week 10 -- the Ravens are neither punishing nor permissive against the pass, just middle-of-the-road -- it might be asking too much for him to do more than catch four-ish passes for 60 yards and possibly score a touchdown. The Ravens are punishing against the run, so the Bengals may lean on the passing game, which would benefit Jones. 

Jones has a three-game streak of six or more targets, so he's definitely getting involved in the passing game as the season goes on. He's worth a start in most formats -- plenty of upside, and statistical-backed proof that his downside may not be as low as it was in the first five weeks. 


Marvin Jones solid coming off huge game


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/1/2013) Bengals wide receiver Marvin Jones failed to live up to the hype in Week 9 against the Dolphins, but that wasn't entirely his fault; coming off a four-touchdown game, it was almost impossible for him not to have a letdown game.

Jones was still solid, emerging as one of Andy Dalton's favorite options in the passing game. He was targeted seven times and brought in four passes for 66 yards, with a long catch of 26 yards.

Jones is up to 28 catches for 435 yards on the season, after finishing with just 201 yards on 18 catches in 11 games as a rookie. He will try to continue his solid play in Week 10, when the Bengals take on the Ravens. 


Blossoming Marvin Jones could start Thursday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/31/2013) The possible absence of Bengals wideout Mohamed Sanu (shoulder) from the game Thursday against Miami would elevate Week 8 breakout star Marvin Jones to starter status. But it will remain unclear if Jones, who is coming off a four-score game against the Jets, has bypassed the disappointing Sanu unless the latter is active.

Sanu has just 25 catches for 254 yards and no touchdowns this season. He has been particularly feeble the last two games with two receptions for 36 yards.


Marvin Jones looking to carry momentum forward


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/30/2013) Bengals wide receiver Marvin Jones scored four touchdowns against the Jets in Week 8. It was his third consecutive game with a touchdown, giving him six over his last three. The 122 receiving yards were a career high, beating his previous best (71), set two games earlier. 

His Week 9 opponent, the Dolphins, allow the fourth-fewest Fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers. But it's mainly because they've allowed just one touchdown to wideouts this season. If you look at it purely from a yardage point of view, the Dolphins are somewhat permissive -- allowing the 13th-most receiving yards per game (263) to opponents. 

Where does this leave Jones? Somewhere between a must-start and a red flag. A week after Alshon Jeffery had 281 receiving yards, for instance, he caught one pass for 27 yards on Thursday night against a weak Giants pass defense. But there's also the case for momentum -- Andy Dalton is obviously looking his way, and if teams are going to cover A.J. Green (who's still getting 100 yards a game), Jones has established himself as a scoring threat. 

Don't bench Jones out of fear that he will have a Jeffery-esque Thursday night performance, but owners should prepare themselves for a drop-off in production and the threat of a no-touchdown game. Jones has still put together an uneven season, and Dalton had three bad games before his recent three-game run. Jones is a risk, but he's worth gambling on until this streak comes to an end. 


Marvin Jones scored four touchdowns on 19 snaps


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/28/2013) Bengals No. 3 receiver Marvin Jones, who exploded for eight catches, 122 yards and four touchdowns against the Jets, did all that in 19 snaps, according to data from Pro Football Focus. Jones ran 13 pass routes and was targeted eight times.

Meanwhile, No. 2 receiver Mohamed Sanu played 31 snaps and ran 21 routes but was targeted just three times. He made a 24-yard catch.

Jones has scored six touchdowns the past three weeks despite not playing more than 26 snaps in any game.
