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.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

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.
