Tests done on Jones' knee Monday afternoon revealed that both his ACL and MCL are still intact. However, Jones did sustain a bone bruise and the Lions are considering him day-to-day going forward.
Tests showed that Lions’ WR Marvin Jones’ ACL and MCL are intact, but he did sustain a bone bruise and will be considered day to day, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 12, 2018
That's definitely good news for Jones owners, as the wideout is likely to return to the field sooner rather than later. Yet, this could be even better for Kenny Golladay owners over the next few weeks.
Golladay's fantasy stock is already at an all-time high now that Golden Tate's out of the picture. However, if Jones just so happens to be unable to play in Week 11, he'll be the only legitimate receiving option in Detroit's offense.
From @NextGenStats, the NFL average separation a WR gets from his nearest defender at time of catch/incompletion is 2.8 yards.— Dave Birkett (@davebirkett) November 12, 2018
For the Lions yesterday:
-TJ Jones 2.48 yards
-Kenny Golladay 2.33
-Michael Roberts 1.78
-Marvin Jones 1.25
Anthony Miller, meanwhile, was 4.72 yards
It'll be safe to expect Matthew Stafford to lean on the second-year wideout if Jones is on the sidelines, which should reward Golladay's owners with a huge fantasy day.
