2021 Fantasy Outlook
Jones was the fifth QB selected in the first round of this year's draft. He was a highly accurate passer at Alabama, setting an NCAA record for completion percentage (77.4) last season while throwing 41:4 TD:INT. Scouts laud his anticipation and ability to read defenses, but Jones' arm is below average, and he lacks mobility and athleticism. No matter, he won a summer battle against Cam Newton, prompting the Patriots to release their veteran quarterback at the end of the preseason. Jones now enters Week 1 as the starter, with Nelson Agholor, Jakobi Meyers, Hunter Henry, Jonnu Smith and James White serving as his top pass catchers. Read Past Outlooks

Overmatched in playoff loss
QBNew England Patriots
January 15, 2022
Jones completed 24 of 38 passes for 232 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Saturday's 47-17 loss to Buffalo.
ANALYSIS
Though New England was overmatched in nearly all aspects of its wild-card matchup, Jones was unable to get the offense moving while the game remained within reach. His play during the first offensive possession was an exception, as he found Hunter Henry for a 30-yard completion and also scrambled for a 16-yard gain. However, he was picked off by Micah Hyde in the end zone to end the rally. After that, positive plays were few and far between, as Jones ended the first half with only 10 completions for 106 yards. He managed to pad his stat line with a pair of touchdown passes to Kendrick Bourne with the Patriots down by at least three scores the entire second half. Despite the loss, Jones showed promise during his rookie season and will be back under center to lead the New England offense for the 2022 campaign.
