The Cincinnati Bengals travel to South Florida to face the Miami Dolphins in Week 9 on Thursday Night Football. There is plenty of talent in this matchup, but the name on everybody's radar is wide receiver Marvin Jones.
The Bengals receiver is coming off a monster performance against the New York Jets in Week 8, catching eight passes for 122 yards and a ridiculous four touchdowns. The craziest part of the performance was that Jones only played 18 snaps. A.J. Green and Mohamed Sanu were the starting receivers, but Jones made the most of his opportunities.
Start or sit: Depending on your roster options, you likely have to START Jones. While you cannot expect another four-touchdown performance, it is worth noting he had a touchdown in each of the previous weeks. He had 57 yards and a touchdown in Week 8 and 71 yards and a touchdown in Week 7. The Dolphins have a solid enough pass defense, but not enough that it should impact your decision to start Jones.
While Jones is primarily a WR3/Flex option, he is playing like a guy who will produce week in and week out. While touchdowns are not the most sustainable of fantasy categories for a lot of players, you should ride the hot hand.
