Jones has notched a sack in all but three games this season, and he's been an outstanding IDP option on that production alone. However, he's also added three forced fumbles, giving him excellent weekly upside due to his playmaking ability.
This was Jones' first multi-sack performance of the season, and he's up to seven sacks on the year. His big game ended a drought in which he had just a single sack in his previous four matchups. He has an excellent chance of exceeding the 12.5 sacks he had in 2015, which were the most he's had during his career.
