Week 12 IDP Free Agent Focus

Chris Jones, DL, Chiefs

Jones’ history of production aligns better with his outburst against the Cowboys than the rest of his 2021 season has. He entered Sunday with just 3 sacks and 12 total tackles through 8 games in a season disrupted by a wrist injury. That cost Jones 2 games and limited his effectiveness in others. His 3.5 sacks against Dallas suddenly puts him on track, though, to surpass last year’s 7.5 -- and maybe the 9 of 2019. Jones gets a Week 12 bye but then a high-upside matchup with Denver, which entered the week allowing pressure at the league’s highest rate, according to Pro Football Reference.
