Fantasy football waiver advice, Week 9: Marvin Jones worth adding after breakout game

Andy Lyons

Four touchdowns on 19 snaps. How's that for efficiency?

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Marvin Jones had a breakout game against the New York Jets in Week 8, catching eight passes for 122 yards and four touchdowns.

What's even more impressive is the fact that Jones put up those numbers despite only playing 19 offensive snaps, less than a third of the Bengals' total snaps. He now has 250 receiving yards in his last three games to go with six receiving touchdowns, despite not being on the field too often.

Fantasy spin: Fantasy owners will have a tough time gauging what to do about Jones. On one hand, he's had great production in recent weeks. On the other, his playing time doesn't seem to be increasing along with the production.

Even without high snap counts, Jones has to be on a roster in every fantasy football league. Sometimes it's not about playing time, it's about what a player does with playing time. Jones has been a reliable option across from A.J. Green, particularly in the red zone. He will only continue to earn the trust of his coaches and quarterback with his crisp route running and soft hands.
