What You Need to Know:

  • Jones spent 6 years in college (4 at USC, 2 at Tennessee). His only season with more than 300 yards came in 2021 at Tennessee (62-807-7).
  • Jones, well built at 6’0, 200 pounds, is already 25 years old.
  • He ran a 4.31 forty-time, and speed is certainly his best trait.
  • Chicago made him a surprise selection in Round 3 of the ’22 draft.
  • Bears beat writer Adam Jahns wrote post-draft that Jones “should have an immediate role on offense.” Given a lack of pass-catching depth, that seems like a lock.
  • Chicago lost Allen Robinson, Marquise Goodwin and Damiere Byrd over the offseason.
  • Jones’ top competition for targets includes Darnell Mooney, Cole Kmet, Byron Pringle and Equanimeous St. Brown. Not exactly threatening.
  • New OC Luke Getsy arrives after serving as Green Bay’s QB coach over the past few seasons. It’ll be hard for this new staff — also led by HC Matt Eberflus — to be a downgrade on Matt Nagy.
  • Still, there’s a long way to go for this unit from a macro lens. The ’21 Bears ranked 24th in total yards; 27th in scoring.
  • Jones’ deep speed does look like a good fit with QB Justin Fields, whose deep ball was featured often last year. Eberflus talked this offseason about how Fields’ downfield throws will remain a factor in the ’22 offense.
  • Insider Peter King came away from Bears camp believing the team has "big intentions" for WR Velus Jones this year.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

An overaged rookie, Jones’ college production left a lot to be desired. He landed in a fine spot for immediate playing time, but it’s unlikely he climbs higher than 3rd in line for targets, barring injuries.

Consider him a more desirable pick in best ball formats than in lineup setting leagues.

Bears WR Chase Claypool (knee) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Eagles. We don't have any details on his injury, but Claypool didn't practice all week. With WR Darnell Mooney also out, Chicago is down to WRs Equanimeous St. Brown, Dante Pettis, Byron Pringle, N'Keal Harry and Velus Jones. TE Cole Kmet is the clear favorite to lead the Bears in targets this weekend.

Bears WR Velus Jones (hamstring) is active for today’s game vs. the Giants. We’ll see how big a role the rookie plays in his debut, but he’s not a fantasy option.

Bears WR Velus Jones (hamstring) is questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Giants. He was a full participant in Friday’s practice, so it looks like he’s ready to make his NFL debut. Jones, of course, is nowhere close to being a fantasy option.
