The Chiefs spent the 37th overall pick of the NFL Draft on DL Chris Jones. It was K.C.'s 1st selection after the team traded out of Round 1 with San Francisco. Jones could play DE in the Chiefs' 3-4 front and/or potentially over at NT should Dontari Poe leave after this final year on his contract. Jones didn't tally more than 3 sacks in any college season and doesn't look like a strong IDP candidate for fantasy football owners.
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.
Chiefs DT Chris Jones is questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans. Jones sustained a calf injury in Thursday's practice and then missed Friday's workout. Jones missed 3 games earlier this season, a span that included losses to Houston and Green Bay. Jones' absence would hurt both the run defense and the pass rush. We'll see about his availability Sunday afternoon.
