What You Need to Know:

  • A 2021 first-round pick, Jones started all 17 games for the Pats last season.
  • Following a slow start, Jones went on to finish as a top-12 QB 5 times. That includes a QB4 finish against Cleveland.
  • Jones ranked 14th in pass attempts; New England sat 26th in pass rate.
  • Jones was aided by a strong O-line, one that allowed pressure at one of the lowest rates league-wide (18.4%).
  • New England’s pass catchers weren’t dynamic. Jones’ top-5 target-getters were Jakobi Meyers, Hunter Henry, Kendrick Bourne, Nelson Agholor and Brandon Bolden.
  • They were dependable, though. The team’s 3.1% combined drop rate ranked 2nd lowest.
  • Jones ranked 10th in Pro Football Focus passing grade.
  • For 2022, HC Bill Belichick hasn’t announced New England’s OC. But it’ll likely be either Joe Judge or Matt Patricia, a pair of uninspiring choices.
  • New England returns Meyers, Henry, Bourne and Agholor. James White, who missed most of 2021 with a hip injury, was re-signed in the offseason. His health remains a potential roadblock to production.
  • The Pats added size in veteran DeVante Parker; speed in Round 2 rookie WR Tyquan Thornton.
  • The Pats traded stud OG Shaq Mason to Tampa Bay and added surprise Round 1 OG Cole Strong in the draft.
  • This unit remains a non-issue for Jones. PFF ranked the O-line 10th in pass blocking last year and it profiles similarly in 2022.
  • ESPN's Mike Reiss notes that the Patriots offense has been inconsistent through training camp so far, featuring more "no chance" plays than usual.
  • "Jones looks out of sync and sometimes uncomfortable with what's happening around him," Lazar writes. "In passing situations with the field spread, Jones looks more like his usual self, and the glimpses we've seen of Mac's deep throws show signs of improvement. But the ball isn't coming out of his hands as quickly or decisively as in the past."

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Jones ranked as the QB18 in his debut NFL season. Not bad considering his less-than-stellar supporting cast.

The talent was upgraded this offseason, but it’s still nowhere close to the top of the league. And Jones simply doesn’t supply much with his legs, making his path to high-end fantasy production a bit more difficult.

Jones should go undrafted in normal-sized, 1-QB leagues. But he’s certainly in the mix as an in-season streamer.

Mac Jones, QB NE

7:58am EST 11/25/22

Big passing night in loss

Patriots QB Mac Jones racked up 382 yards on 28-of-39 passing in Thursday night's loss to the Vikings. He found WR Nelson Agholor and TE Hunter Henry for TDs. Jones nearly added a 3rd in the 3rd quarter, but Henry lost control of the ball as he went to the ground. Jones targeted RB Rhamondre Stevenson (10) and WR Nelson Agholor (8) most often. Agholor set a season high in targets and matched his top mark of the year in receptions. Jones beat his career high in yards by 61, hitting 300 for the 2nd time this season. He gets the 6th-best remaining schedule for QB scoring by our adjusted fantasy points allowed -- tops in the league from Week 14 on.

The Patriots threw for just 147 yards in Sunday's win over the Colts. QB Mac Jones completed a decent 66.7% of passes but averaged just 4.9 yards per attempt. WR Jakobi Meyers caught 5 of 6 targets but managed a mere 42 yards. TE Hunter Henry caught all 4 of his targets for 50 yards. RB Rhamondre Stevenson led the team with 7 targets and claimed Jones' sole TD pass. New England gets a Week 10 bye.

NFL Network's Mike Giardi reports that Patriots QB Mac Jones is dealing with numbness in the toes on his left foot as he continues to recover from his high-ankle sprain. It didn't impact Jones' on-field prep for the Jets this week, per Giardi, but it's safe to say that Jones still isn't at 100%. He shouldn't be in Week 8 fantasy lineups.

ESPN's Field Yates reports that Patriots QB Mac Jones will start Sunday's game against the Jets. Jones took "about 90%" of the 1st-team reps in Wednesday's practice, Yates adds. Jones was yanked from Monday night's loss to the Bears after going 3-of-6 for 13 yards and an INT. But QB Bailey Zappe managed just 185 yards with 1 TD and 2 INTs the rest of the way. We'd expect Jones to remain New England' starter for the remains of the season, unless he really flops. He's just a QB2 in fantasy football.

Dynasty Write-up
Jones looked limited as a downfield passer in year 1, but his strong short-to-intermediate accuracy carried over from college. He doesn’t profile as a high-volume passer any time soon, while the Pats need to add talent around him. New England also lost long-time OC Josh McDaniels to Las Vegas.
