In 2012, he led the NFL in receiving yards with 1,198 on 79 receptions; his average of 15.3 yards per catch was the highest in the NFL among players with at least 40 receptions. That year, he also became only the second player in NFL history to have at least 1,400 receiving yards in a season before turning 23 years old (the other was Randy Moss). In 2013, he missed eleven games due to injury but still managed to haul in 41 passes for 580 yards and two touchdowns. He returned healthy for 2014 and had a stellar year with 104 catches for 1,593 yards–both career high totals–and six touchdowns. The following year he had 859 receiving yards and four touchdowns despite being plagued by injuries once again; he only played in nine games that season. Jones’ 2016 campaign was once again cut short by injury, as he played just five games due to a lingering turf toe issue. However, even though he missed most of that season he still managed to racked up 444 receiving yards and two touchdowns
