24-Year-Old QuarterbackQB
New England Patriots
2022 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks

Underwhelming numbers in loss
QBNew England Patriots
December 1, 2022
Jones completed 22 of 36 passes for 195 yards with one touchdown and no interception in the Patriots' 24-10 loss to the Bills on Thursday night. He also rushed three times for seven yards and committed a fumble that was recovered by New England.
ANALYSIS
Jones fell short of the 200-yard mark for the third time in the last five games on a night that was critical to the Patriots' playoff hopes. The second-year signal-caller did extend his interception-less streak to four contests, but after some modest early success New England failed to garner any points on six consecutive possessions until a 17-play, 57-yard march in the fourth quarter after the Pats were already down 17 points. What's more, that march ended in a meaningless field goal when Jones threw three incompletions and took a sack on the last four plays after getting down to the Bills' 15-yard line. Jones' play and that of the entire offense will undoubtedly be the subject of plenty of scrutiny going into a Week 14 road interconference clash against the Cardinals on Monday night, Dec. 12.

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.
