January 10, 2024
Jones appeared in 11 games during the 2023 regular season, completing 224 of 345 pass attempts (64.9 percent) for 2,120 passing yards, 10 touchdowns and 12 interceptions while adding 96 rushing yards on 26 carries.
ANALYSIS
Jones, who was supplanted as the Patriots' starting quarterback in Week 13 by Bailey Zappe, finished his third NFL season as a healthy inactive in the Patriots' Week 18 loss to the Jets. Per Evan Lazar of the team's official site,, Jones is unlikely to have his fifth-year contract option exercised by New England this offseason. Jones will still remain on the Patriots' books through 2024, but it's unclear if he'll be given a chance to compete for the starting gig during the upcoming season. Lazar suggests that the signal-caller could be dealt this offseason and thus get a fresh start in a new locale.

NFL Reactions: Key 2023 Statistics Bound to Regress in 2024
14 days ago
Matthew Stafford and the Rams were a pleasant surprise in 2023 and should be even better in 2024 with the help of a higher completion rate.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
2022
2021
The 15th overall pick last year, Jones won the starting job in training camp and turned in a promising rookie season. He was the fifth QB drafted but outpaced his fellow rookies in passing yards, TD passes and completion percentage. Jones delivered as expected with his ability to read defenses and manage a game, but his lack of arm strength was apparent in his downfield passing. While he went downfield at a good clip (11.9 percent), his on-target rate was just 41.9 percent (26th) on attempts of 20-plus yards. Likewise, Jones’ lack of mobility and athleticism led to rushed mechanics vs. the blitz where he ranked 24th in on-target percentage (67.7) with the third most interceptions (five). Jones did not get much help from a lackluster wideout crew, but the Patriots traded for DeVante Parker this offseason and spent a second-round pick on Tyquan Thornton, who ran a 4.28 40 at the combine. Quality tight ends Hunter Henry and Jonnu Smith return, as does leading receiver Jakobi Meyers. Offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels is now in Las Vegas, and the Patriots, as of press time, have not announced if Joe Judge or Matt Patricia will be the new OC. Either way, the offense doesn’t figure to look drastically different, though perhaps it will give Jones more attempts than the 30.6 (21st) he averaged last year. He'll need them to improve his fantasy value, considering he offers next to nothing as a runner.
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.
