The Jacksonville Jaguars bolstered their offense in free agency, signing former Detroit Lions wide receiver Marvin Jones to a two-year, $14.5 million contract. After finishing the 2020 season strong, can Jones continue to be fantasy relevant in sunny Florida?
The Jaguars, barring an absolutely incredible series of events, will have a new quarterback in 2021 in Trevor Lawrence. In order for him to enjoy some early success, it would be helpful to have some playmakers. Surprisingly, the Jaguars, despite their 1-15 record last season, enjoyed middle-of-the-pack production from their wide receivers. This despite not having a player record more than 706 receiving yards.
Keelan Cole, Chris Conley, and Dede Westbrook are all set to hit free agency themselves ahead of the 2021 season, freeing up 150 targets, 1,117 yards, and 1,612 air yards.
A couple of weeks ago, Shawn Siegele named Jones to his list of the 5 Best Values in FFPC Best Ball. Does he now benefit from all of these available targets? Should we expect him to rise from WR57? In breaking down the advanced stats for the Jacksonville passing game, I’ll explore whether you should look to get Jones onto your rosters this fall.
