WR Marvin Jones – Over the last three weeks Jones has had stats of 3-71-1, 4-57-1, 8-122-4. So how do you top last weeks performance? Have another solid game to follow it up. It’s looking like Mo Sanu is going to miss Thursday’s game and Jones will be in the spotlight to play significant snaps.

It was supposed to be Sanu that reminded us of TJ Housmandzadeh but it’s Jones that makes me reminisce about the former chain moving, tough running, redzone maven, Housmandzadeh.  Miami’s pass defense is currently ranked 19th and Jones will likely continue to draw single coverage in most situations. I he can win some of those battles it should open up other options in the passing game as well.
