WR – Marvin Jones

After and uneventful rookie season Jones exploded this year with 10 touchdowns on 51 catches. For some reason the staff couldn’t get Jones on the field with any consistency until later in the season were he emerged as the clear-cut #2 receiver the Bengals have been chasing for a few years.

Jones’ best performance came vs. the Jets in Week 8, when he hauled in four touchdowns to break the Bengals franchise record for most receiving TDs  in a game. While Jones may not get 10 touchdowns next year I believe he gets closer to 1000 yards expanding on the 712 yards he had this year, which is what the Bengals need from him.
