Marvin Jones injury update: Lions WR questionable vs. Eagles

The Lions expect to have Marvin Jones vs. the Eagles on Sunday.

The Detroit Lions are listing Marvin Jones Jr. as questionable vs. the Philadelphia Eagles. He is dealing with a foot injury, but is expected to play Sunday, according to Detroit Free Press reporter Dave Birkett.

The fifth-year receiver missed Wednesday and was limited Thursday before practicing fully on Friday. He should be good to go and keep getting the majority of targets in Detroit’s pass-happy offense, which has made him one of the NFL’s best fantasy receivers this season.

Through four games, Jones is the third-leading receiver in terms of fantasy scoring. He has caught 23 passes for 482 yards and two scores.

Fantasy Impact: Yahoo! ranks Jones as the 10th-best receiver in Week 5. However, he will face an Eagles defense allowing the fifth-fewest fantasy points to receivers this season.

That is still not enough to debate starting Jones this week. Keep him in your lineup for the foreseeable future.
