The Lions have started the year 1-3 and they received some additional bad news as they head into an important home divisional matchup with the Green Bay Packers. Starting wide receiver Marvin Jones was added to the injury report and is now questionable for Sunday's game. 

With Matthew Stafford potentially missing one of his favorite targets, you can expect an uptick for Golden Tate whose fantasy stock should get a bump as well, if Jones ultimately cannot go. 


With one of the team's best deep threats possibly out of the picture, Stafford and the Lions may look to work the running backs into the passing game, which would be good news for Theo Riddick and Kerryon Johnson owners too.

The situation is well worth monitoring since, if he can play, Jones is a WR2 in most leagues. If not, expect a bump in production from those other players mentioned.
