2018 Fantasy Outlook
That the Packers finished the draft without selecting a safety seemingly locks Jones into a three-down role, in which case a big season could be on the horizon. Originally groomed as a nickel-specific sort of rover position in addition to strong safety, the Packers could see plenty of snaps with all of Jones, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Kentrell Brice on the field at once. With 71 tackles on 735 snaps last year, Jones would appear to be a triple-digit threat with a bit of luck. Read Past Outlooks

Piles up tackles after role change
SGreen Bay Packers
January 2, 2019
Jones appeared in 13 games and started five for the Packers in 2018. He finished the year with 55 tackles (40 solo), a sack and two pass deflections.
Jones tallied only three tackles over the Packers' first seven games, but his role increased the rest of the way, and he finished the season tied for third on the team in tackles. It remains to be seen what type of role Jones will play in 2019, but his ability to rack up tackles will make him an option in leagues that use IDPs if he winds up with a starting spot.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Jones not only gives defensive coordinator Dom Capers a new weapon to deploy, but also bolsters the Packers' depth at safety, which is one of the best units in the NFL. While Jones will be listed as a safety, he has received plenty of praise for his blitzing ability, which should allow him to often play close to the line of scrimmage, a preferred spot to rack up the gold known as tackles in many IDP formats.
