Weekly Writeup
The Chiefs have already played Jones on both edges, while mixing in a few interior snaps. Don't be surprised if he settles at left DE more this game to get away from well-performing rookie OT Rashawn Slater. Jones is questionable with a wrist injury.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

We know what we're getting in Jones at DT: 1 of the league's best players at the position, and arguably the NFL's top interior pass rusher. But this year will be at least a little different.

The Chiefs plan to have Jones line up on the edge more often this year, and Jones says he shed 15-20 pounds in the offseason to prepare for a hybrid role.

"I’m not a real D-end. Spags is gonna move me around," Jones said at the start of camp. "Most likely, I’m gonna be playing both spots, depending on the gameplan and who we’re playing and what’s the best matchup. So I just try to put myself at a weight where I can play 3-tech the whole game or D-end the whole game.”

Wherever he's lining up, we know Jones can get after the QB. He tied for 4th in the league with 28 QB hits last year, and that's not even his personal best (29 in 2018). Jones' fantasy numbers dipped last year, and he earned the lowest run-defense grade of his career so far from Pro Football Focus. But Jones also pulled the best pass-rushing grade of his career and has finished each of the past 3 seasons over 90 (elite level) in that category.

His floor looks like high DL3 range, with a ceiling into the top 10 -- as he showed us with the 15.5-sack 2018.

Chiefs DL Chris Jones is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Chargers with a wrist injury. He put in limited practices all week, so we’d bet on Jones playing. But we’ll check his status Sunday

Chiefs DT Chris Jones was away from the team Thursday because of close contact with a staff member who tested positive for COVID-19. But NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Jones has been cleared and is set to practice Friday. So the star DT should be good to go for Week 9 IDP lineups.

The Chiefs have applied the franchise tag to DT Chris Jones. It was the expected move, to keep 1 of the team's top defensive players from hitting free agency. When healthy, Jones is a top-20 fantasy D-linemen and 1 of the top fantasy DTs available. He'll turn just 26 in July.

Chiefs DT Chris Jones (calf) is active for today’s game against the Titans. That’s a big boost to K.C.’s run defense and pass rush

Chiefs DT Chris Jones (calf) is inactive for today's game against the Texans. That leaves the Kansas City D-line without a top run defender and a key component in the pass rush. Jones also missed the Week 6 meeting, in which Texans RB Carlos Hyde tallied 116 yards on 26 carries. Today's matchup gets better for Hyde with Jones out.
